Book Review Blurb: The Mystery of Henri Pick by David Foenkinos

I LOVED this one!! It had all the magical lyricism I love about French stories from authors like Antoine Laurain, with a sweet underlying sensibility that just resonated for me… I’m pretty much a sucker for any books about books/authors, but there was something truly magical in this one. The idea of a library of rejected books, the mystery behind the novel, the relationships between all the disparate characters – everything about this one was well-crafted and well-presented. The writing is beautiful, the story is thoughtful and entertaining at the same time, and the characters grabbed hold of me from the opening pages and never let go. This was a great find and Foenkinos is definitely on my watch-list going forward!

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for my obligation-free review copy.
