5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!, 8 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dolce Vita (Paperback)
I first picked up this book in a charity shop when I was about 16 because it sounded interesting, however what started out as a impulsive buy actually turned out to be one of my favourite books! The main character, Una, is a 16 year old girl who is living in Paris in the late 80's. I found her to be very relatable in her somewhat ideallistic thoughts on love and naive outlook on life but she was charming and funny and carefree despite her strange and unsettling circumstances. The prose is well done, it flows and yet it has the quaint charm of a hand written diary (which is what it is meant to be after all). The characters are believable and totally captivating, as a rather sheltered young lady I was completely intrigued by the cast of rock stars, transvestites and strippers who take on such a harmless and almost friendly vibe through the innocent eyes of Una.

I could continue to praise this book to infinity and beyond however I will just finish by saying, whether you are growing up or have already grown up this book has a unique and inspiring voice which will leave a mark on your memory... well, it did for me anyway!
