This is fine. A good YA I've just read. It nicely packages the whole world of Haiti by replanting it to the urban Detroit. Nice writing style. Good story

One of the best I've ever read. Quite slow paced. Reflective and bit sad. Loved the parts on Stendhal and Kafka. The first novel from the acclaimed German writer.

On page 28. Reading Proust day 1. The introduction was really sublime and surreal.

BarbaraBB Kudos for reading Proust. I started in 2017 and finished in 2020 😅 8mo
rakeshpm @BarbaraBB thank you so much for the comment. Infact I started the way by Swann's in 2018 and stopped after reading 50 pages. This year I'm committed to finish all seven volumes. 8mo
