I saw the movie first, which moved me. Perhaps because I did see it on screen first, I had no problem knowing the outcome. If you take the words as they flow and just let yourself be drawn along, the outcome is beautiful and painful.

“He says he’s lonely, horribly lonely because of this love he feels for her. She says she’s lonely too. She doesn’t say why.” Duras writes a cool and emotionless account of a fifteen year old girl taking a wealthy Asian man as her lover. He becomes both her savior and her downfall. It is a lavish and beautiful tale, slow like the opium the older lover consumes.

I liked this book because it took you to another country in the past. The fedora hat, like another character, gave the story something special.

Although the writing is beautiful, for the first time I enjoyed the movie version better than the book.

I didnt like this at all. It skipped around so much and for me it was really confusing. It took me a long time to finish it just because I barely had any interest in it and it was real hard to comprehend.
