    Oh my gosh! This book is so beautifully and poetically written! I just think everyone should read it! I want to meet someone like Jean Perdu.

  • Jacob Overmark

    What did I think?

    At first I thought "Whats not to like?". A book about books and Southern France, perfect for a rainy summer day and I immediately fell for Jean Perdu.

    The name game wasnt lost on me, a man in a mature age, lost in himself, in his past and his happy and unhappy memories. He could have been "The Steppenwolf" or even the narrator in "À la recherche du temps perdu", but hes neither.

    He is a man with a mission, he is a literary apothecary, caring for all the lost souls but his own wi

    Absolutely perfect premise and storyline - I was hooked by that blurb. Unfortunately this book was not at all what I was expecting. I was hoping for a Parisian Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore but with a twist - an eccentric old gentleman selling books as medicine to those who are missing a certain something in their lives. As someone who's found solace and company in books ever since I was an awkward little girl, this appealed to me. Unfortunately, that's not what I got, and that book blurb ab ...more

    2.5- stars, really.

    okay, first up: hello, my name is jennifer and i got a bit suckered into reading a romance novel. :/

    (publisher lists this as 'fiction, romance, contemporary' - NetGalley listing reads 'literature/fiction' and did not have the 'contemporary romance' identifier.) i am not against romance, per se, but in reading, i am against the overly-sentimental and schmaltzy, and overuse of clichés. so this book fell apart for me on all three counts. which is really, really unfortunate. this

    ”Books keep stupidity at bay. And vain hopes. And vain men. They undress you with love, strength and knowledge. It’s love from within.”

    People read for lots of different reasons. They want to be entertained. They want a book to explain what is wrong with them or a confirmation of what they think is wrong with their spouse. They read for information. They read for an experience outside themselves. They read to escape the drudgery of their lives.

    Sometimes I don’t understand why people read at all

    Livros - O Nosso Agora E Sempre

    "As memórias são como os lobos. Não as podes trancar num quarto e esperar que te ignorem."

    Mas...há os livros:

    Os livros protegem-nos ...

    Da tristeza.

    Da ignorância.

    Da falsidade.

    Plantam risos e lágrimas emprestadas.

    Elevam a auto-estima.

    Revestem-nos de amor, força e sabedoria.

    Descobrimos quem somos.

    Quem queremos ser.

    Aprendemos.

    Mudamos.

    Evoluímos.

    Amamos, odiamos, sofremos, rejubilamos.

    São vida por dentro.

    São abrigos, magos, mestres e companheiros!...

    A escolha é nossa:

    The book started out with possibilities:

    There was monsieur Perdu: - ' the king of this world, a literary pharmacist, who writes prescriptions for the lovesick;

    "…My name is Jean. Jean Albert Victor Perdu. Albert after my paternal grandfather, Victor after my maternal grandfather. My mother is a professor, and her father, Victor Bernier, was a toxicologist, a socialist and mayor. I’m fifty years old, Catherine, and I haven’t known many women, let alone slept with them. I loved one. She left me.’

    The reviews are so misleading. What a disappointment! Only one person in our book club liked it. The rest of us just plowed through, hoping it would be over. It was certainly not my cup of tea. The story could have been told in 50 pages, and the rest of the story was just meandering emotion.
