The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery
The Elegance of the Hedgehog

cravingkiwi, January 1, 2013

Loved the characters, loved the story. Beautifully written and translated. You see yourself in the well-read and intelligent concierge who hides behind a veil of stereotype, the young girl who has lost interest in life, and in the kind Japanese man who brings them together. Best book I read in 2012!
