He never complicates a desire by overthinking it, unlike Mirabelle, who spins a cocoon around an idea until it is immobile. p.10What better way to compliment a book than to close it and sigh? That is exactly what I did for this novella. It was a very thoughtful and insightful book about one woman trying to become an adult and deal with adult relationships. I wouldn't say there were lessons to be learned about life in general because it is a very focused book. I will say that watching Mirabelle learning harsh lessons about life and love was a profound experience. Martin accomplished a lot in 130 pages, managing to capture the right tone and emotion of the situation between Roy Porter and Mirabelle as well as exploring how these two people made a connection at all. It was a sweet book, a bit sad, and very engrossing

Sounds great! I haven't read this, but the movie adaptation was very good.ReplyDelete
I enjoyed another novel Martin wrote (can't think of the title right now but I listened to it on audio).
I read this last year for the November Novella Challenge. I really liked it, and didn't expect to. I recently read Steve Martin's autobiography, which was also quite good.ReplyDelete
