This review is from: Desert (Paperback)
I agree with the review by Ann Noonan, in the sense that this book is primarily about rhythm. The main character whose ancestors lived free in the desert, is forced to leave and emigrate to Marseilles in France. The difference of pace in the narration transports us in two different worlds with different values and hardships.
However, I only gave it 4 stars as it can be difficult to engage with the book. It could be a little dated, and I am looking forward to read more recent work by le Clezio.
