This was a lovely little book. I really enjoyed the story and thought that Martel did an excellent job of narrating and plotting the novel. I enjoyed the book on many different levels. Whether you're looking for something to read before bed or a more substantial read, this book will meet both these needs. Highly recommended!
I read Elegance and enjoyed it very much. The author's follow-up effort was a disappointment. I found the prose stilted, the characters unconvincing and the attempt at magic realism unsuccessful. Hopefully, her next effort will be better.
