Disappearing into the distance,
This review is from: Ada or Ardor: A Family Chronicle (Penguin Modern Classics) (Paperback)
Reading this is the literary equivalent of going on a training run with Usain Bolt. You keep pace with him, putting in the effort and enjoying the company of one of the greats, and then he effortlessly accelerates away with an apologetic smile. All you can do is watch in breathless admiration and laugh youself sick. Is Vlad the greatest writer of prose fiction? I think so. Is this his finest work? I think so.
