A NoveleBook - 2015
""A book is both doctor and medicine. It makes diagnoses and provides therapy. Bringing the right novels together with the appropriate people is the way I sell books."

I really enjoyed the "literary apothecary" aspect of this book, especially the book prescriptions at the end. The scenery of the French countryside is beautifully described. Jean Perdu's journey is a reminder not to let life pass you by.

"'Fear transforms you body like an inept sculptor does a perfect block of stone,' Perdu heard Vijaya's voice say inside him. 'It's just that you're chipped away at from within, and no one sees how many splinters and layers have been taken off you. You become ever thinner and more brittle inside, until even the slightest emotion bowls you over. One hug, and you think you're going to shatter and be lost.' If Jordan [Perdu's young friend] ever needed a piece of fatherly advice, Perdu would tell him: 'Never listen to fear! Fear makes you stupid..'" (p. 130-131)
