I assume this is meant to be a satire, and as such it is funny in parts. The problem is, for a book that is satirizing good literature, it's not well written. Perhaps some of the problem lies with the translation, but the plot is heavy-handed and clumsy, which certainly is not the translator's responsibility.

If you can get past the long sentences, and I do mean long (sentence on page 119 is 109 words long with 9 commas) and the extremely weird writing in some places, the book isn't all that bad. It is a good story and the characters are interesting enough but the writing presents a hurdle that is tough to overcome. I think the author took herself too seriously and tried to be TOO LITERARY. I almost put this book down several times but kept reading because I hate to give up on any book. I bought it because it was one of the books recommended by B&N.

Smart and compelling, I fell in love with Ivan and Francesca before I knew it. It ranks right up there with The Elegance of A Hedgehog. This book is not for every reader . . . but it is well written and mysterious, so one must be a patient reader!
