This book blew me away. I don’t know what I was expecting, and I have started this strange habit of not reading the back of books until I’ve finished them, and in a way I’m glad because it really took my breath away.
I was recommended and lent this book by a family member, and I started reading it as I normally do, with several other books on the go. It was only towards the end of the book that I realised I was solely reading Monsieur Linh and His Child. My passion for the book really crept up on me.
This book is so fantastic that I really don’t want to give anything away. All I can say is that you will love it and you will go on to recommend it to others. On the back of this, I have now bought two other titles of Claudel’s, and cannot wait to start them!
I buy all my books from a little bookshop in Hampshire, called Laurence Oxley’s Bookshop. The address is Laurence Oxley’s, Broad Street, Alresford, SO24 9AW.
