Flop - The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery

The Elegance of the HedgehogThe Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I wanted to love this book, with such an interesting title - but I couldn't even make it past the first few chapters before I gave up in frustration.

Perhaps it's because this is a book translated into English, or perhaps it's just not my style, but I found the perambulating phrasing and perhaps slightly insane characters too much to handle. I couldn't find the hook that would keep me involved and wanting to know more, and instead found myself flipping to the end just to be done with it.

Just not my cup of tea.

  1. It's a shame that you didn't enjoy this book, as it's one of my favourites. I do admit though, it did take me a couple of goes to get into this book, you have to be in the right mood to appreciate it.

    1. Yeah I guess it just didn't work for me lol, sometimes that happens. I'm sure it works better for other readers though.
