Nothing amele short novels, but it seems that the brevity of this page text just didn’t allow for characters to fully develop.

A charming parable of childhood as a magical time that, it seems, must end when hormones begin to take charge. Quotes from The Book of Prope Oh, how I love thee.

Overall an enjoyable read, even though this work isn’t as tightly executed as her other piece I prefer, Fear and Trembling. Since then, she has published approximately one novel per year with a. I am left without words. Want to Read Currently Reading Read.


That could have been developed into a much more powerful novel, but then Nothomb has to go and ruin it with e I often find Nothomb a little amwlie too keen to shock.

Her dreams and magic are slowly being erased in nombrees dance school where the only important thing seems to be the ability to be the most thinnest girl in school. There are snippets of feminist critique on motherhood, on ideals of beauty, etcthere are pointed comments on the process of learning and the limitations of the educational system, as well as lighthearted yet profound insights into anorexia.

To be fair, I think I read this book at the perfect moment.
