A dubious start. The young hero appears so spoilt and superficial. But definitely worth carrying on as it's an absolute masterpiece . For those of us who dream of travelling away from the beaten track, it is a treasure
of information. Whilst we are wondering what happened to his love, his 'adventures' have us spell bound. Realism with passion. A beautiful, well written book. I assume Fredericke, the author, is a woman which really surprised me as her male character feels so right.
Enjoy.

Beaucoup aime le rapport aux autres, cote initiatique de la rencontre de chaque culture. Tres belle ecriture, plus soutenue que la moyenne. L'histoire en trame de fond est selon moi un peu confuse. Il faut aller chercher lemrapprochement qu'a voulu faire l'auteur. J'ai mis du temps a rentrer dedans mais une fois pris, Devore assez rapidement Et un peu rester sur ma faim, j'aurais encore voulu voyager.

I quite enjoyed reading this book if only to prove to myself that I could still read French. I bought the Kindle edition and found the kindle dictionary very useful in places.

Briefly the story is that the writer is called Francois-Joseph which apparently is a risibly clunky name if you're French. He has a long affair with the fiancée of his best friend. She is then killed in a car accident (although that is never really spelled out). There is then a long digression about the narrator's childhood and school days and his first girlfriend. We then return to the present and the writer sets out on a long meandering pilgrimage across the middle east and Asia with the aim of finding/having made a Chinese wedding robe (which his girlfriend had longed for). We then follow him on this mission across all kinds of obscure central Asian countries as he obtains the silk, has it woven and made into the gown until he finally reaches China.

I found the ending an anti-climax (to say the least). Also we were rather pointlessly kept waiting until very near the end of the book to find out that his best friend's fiancée was also the girl who had been his first girlfriend in his schooldays.

I did find that all the countries he crossed melded into one and although it should have been a fairly dramatic story, somehow it wasn't.

It is quite readable and well written but I thought the story was a bit weak in the end.
