    1. “It was a time I slept in many rooms, called myself by many names. mine was the twilight and the morning. Mine was a world of rooftops and love songs.”This quote makes me want to read this book


    2. Set in Paris and full of poetic language, this novel follows a young man - an artist, writer, musician, and rake - as he lives life to the fullest in Paris. It feeds every romantic and artistic notion of Paris any man could ask for - beautiful, sensual women wander the streets waiting to be seduced, there is not a moment to be without wine or coffee, and the urge to write epic poems and operas overtakes him all the time. It's not realistic, but it is charming and beautifully written. In short, i [...]



    3. Great if you're a francophile. Many points worth quoting. Otherwise, a story about a vain and weak Casanova type of man who thinks he is better than most people and for whom women constantly fall for. Plot line was not intriguing and mostly I just wanted to beat aleksandre with an ugly stick.




    4. Do not read this book. Seriously, don't. If you are remotely progressive, or have a taste for high literature, you will not enjoy this book. Here are my reasons:1. Lack of plot- The plot is not made clear. The reader follows a man who does not seem to have any reason to live, yet enjoys his life with no thought of the experiences of others, and no acknowledgement that others have experiences- much like someone of low intelligence does.2. It completely objectifies women- You can open the book to [...]


    5. This gorgeous book is set in Paris and full of linguistic and poetic language, this novel is about a young man - a musician/writer/artists as he lives life to the fullest in Paris. It's sensual and paints a picture of romantic Paris- beautiful, sensual women wander the streets waiting to be seduced, there is not a moment to be without wine or coffee, and the urge to write epic poems and operas overtakes him all the time. It's not realistic, but it is charming and beautifully written. Its a novel [...]


    6. Linguistically and mechanically, the novel is flawless and beautiful- very pleasurable to read. However the story itself, characters, and over-all point of the novel left something to be desired. This book is really worth reading if nothing else but for the beautiful language and poetic prose. It really is elegant and surprising- tantalizing and – sensual. It isn’t quite a love story and it isn’t quite an epic hero’s tale but it is a beautiful- and long- soliloquy.See my full review here [...]


    7. Though there were some high points, this book was a bit tiring (mainly because the narrator is such a pompous anti-hero). The book does, however, stoke the flames of wanderlust and features bits of beautifully florid, if not esoteric, prose. Unfortunately, these snatches of beauty aren't consistent enough to warrant a stronger recommendation.
