The Girl Who Reads on the Métro

The Girl Who Reads on the Métro by Christine Féret-Fleury

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Introspective and whimsical Juliette and vague and solitary Soliman I enjoyed getting to know you both and hanging out at the bookshop. Juliette- the idea of how much literature enriches your life:

‘…covered in a flash almost inconceivable distances… let the centuries roll over her… spoken to animals and the gods, drunk tea with a rabbit, and tasted hemlock and ambrosia? where were her companions hiding?- Count Pierre…Alice… Pippi Longstocking… Aladdin…?’ P.118

You both enriched my reading and made my train journey across Europe even more enjoyable.
