Ernaux perfectly captures what it feels like to love and lust for someone to the distraction of everything and everyone else. She eloquently and truthfully describes the emotional heaven and hell that one experiences when in the complete thrall of another.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This is my favorite book. I injest every sentence with the same exstacy she writes about in her love affair. She takes obsession to a new level by confessing to it's evolution. She wrote about things we all do when we worship somebody else, but rarely ponder or admite to because they are so private and crazy, and humiliating! She is the modern Margurite Duras, or Andre Gide.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
