Beautiful and intelligent.
It was a very fast reading experience; not that it was simple, but that it was too mesmerizing to put down. While the mis-en-scene is set in one solid apartment building in paris, the narrative fluidly intertwines, expands and explores the three main characters.
I am so glad I cam across this book.

This is easily the best book I have read this year, and definitely in contention for best of the decade. I am a voracious reader, and generally jump from one book to the next within minutes, not to mention I usually have at least 2 going at a time. This one captivated me so much that I abandoned the second book, and needed a couple of days to "recover" from the beauty of this one before I was ready to move on! On a scale from 1 to 5, a 10!
