In short, a Parisian intellectual and a Breton fisherman learn that there is a kind of love that must not be questioned, and that it is not required to make sense. In their case, it was a curse as well as a blessing, in our case a fable and a cautionary tale. Buy every copy of this book you can find. It will make you remember, make you think, make you cry, scare you and it will change you.
This 'lost' a star because the bits where they're not together and George's other relationships/marriages/lovers just don't work for me and I find myself skimming them.
It's also a book where once I've finished it (and wiped away the tears!) it actually seems quite implausible.
There are bits in the translation that jar - one of the problems of turning lyrical French into English.
Having said all that however, I still love this book and regularly re-read it so I guess that says a lot.
This is one of the great love stories of modern literature that left me breathless in a way I hadn't experienced since Milan Kundera's 'Unbearable Lightness of Being'.
