4.0 out of 5 stars The History of Love by Nicole Krauss, 14 Feb 2006
This review is from: The History of Love (Paperback)
My wife bought me this book after watching a review on an early evening television programme. Had I had the choice I would not have given this book a second glance if it were on the shelf in a bookshop. I rarely ever read a work of fiction twice. I have read 'The History of Love' three times in succession, and yet, I feel compelled to read it again. This book is about life and impending death, the innoncence of youth and the loneliness of old age, joy and heartache, regret for what might have been and hope for what might be. Each time I read it I uncover another link in the chain which binds the characters together. I have no doubt that this will be a favourite of mine for many years to come.
