The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is a beautiful book that is elegantly written. I enjoyed the writing style, but at times felt the story was a bit slow. The Elegance of the Hedgehog is a best seller in France, and is quickly rising in popularity in the US.
This novel focuses on class boundaries and artfully describes those boundaries. Overall I loved the characters and the plot development. The plot does move a bit slowly for my tastes, but overall I think this is a great book with valid commentary on our views of people from various classes.
