I had to read this book twice during my college years. The first time I read it, I HATED it. I thought it was quite possibly the most boring book I‘d ever read. (Or if I‘m honest, ever attempted to read. I never finished it. 😆) The second time, obviously I dreaded it. And wouldn‘t you know, it was actually pretty good the second time around. #ownerofalonelyheart #anglophileapril

I have to say that this character can definitely be considered an #EasyLover when she's in a bind or is too fucked up 😂😂 I mean she did literally get too drunk and ended up somehow having a baby with her tank.
So that happened... or it didn't? I'm not really sure what this was... lots of masturbation, a sort of freak show, a family in France? Yeah... I know that I got to the end of the book and that's just about all I figured out. It was well worded, even if I'm not really sure what I was reading? Umm....

DISCLAIMER: @diovival took full responsibility for this one 😂
I read just over half of the stories and while they were extremely well written and rather comical in places, I simply couldn‘t bring myself to finish. Not enough human-character to-human-character dynamics; far too much about hunting and horse-racing and buying horses. Oh my God!
This book was BLEAK. All the trigger warnings I can think of, it is the semi-autobiographical story of a young gay boy coming of age in an extremely LGBTQ-unfriendly, poor village in northern France. This is my book for the author who is new to you category for #booked2019 and #LetterL for #LitsyAtoZ (in translation)
