Gerçekten bu bir zevk. Verilmiş, içine almak için biraz zaman aldı ama bir kez orada muhteşem bir okuma oldu. Tüm karakterler eşit derecede ilgi çekici ve "oh hayır, tekrar değil" diye düşündüğünüz bir sayfa yok ve birkaç sayfa için okumaya devam edin ... Çok sürükleyici ve önemli bir mesajla hareket etme - hayatınızı dolu olarak yaşayın dünya durmayacak ve daha sonra yetişmeni bekleyecek.
Nefis! Serinin ilk kitabı kadar iyi değil ama yine de çok iyi bir okuma. Hugh ve tüm kardeşlere aşık olmaya yardım edemedim. Hikayenin bitmemesini dilerim!
Chester Campbell writes believable characters and spins a good mystery.
The Elegance of the Hedgehog was a tough one for me. It's full of big words I don't know the meanings of, philosophy I don't agree with and French words I can't pronounce. Truthfully, the challenges mentioned above prevented me from reading this book as quickly as I have read others so far this year. I borrowed the book from my boss who had great things to say about it, and although I got a bit more into it each day, I needed the narrated audio version to get through it. Thank goodness for a free trial on Audible.com and a Kindle to play it! I was able to use context clues for the words I didn't know, finish strings of philosophy without stumbling and hear French words that I would have butchered on my own. It was wonderful. Plus, being able to hear the tone in the main characters' voices was an excellent advantage and added to the story. I was happy to read Paloma's Profound Thought No. 14, because I have been to Angelina's in Paris and it was fun to be able to relate to where she was and made the story more real for me. There is so much about this book that I loved, even if I didn't agree with everything in it. Paloma reminded me of Wednesday from The Addams Family and Renee reminded me of a smart Blanche from The Golden Girls (less the man crazy, though). :) I would love to read this again and can only imagine that I will gain more from it when I read it again and again. My advice to anyone considering The Elegance of the Hedgehog is not to let the difficulty of the reading get to you. If you're able to stick it out to the end and accept the real-to-life ending, you won't be disappointed!
