Could be, and that would be a nice conclusion, but unfortunately the book is not a great novel.

The background of this girl is tragic pfopios what happens throughout the story is deeply tragic. A charming parable of childhood as a magical time that, it seems, must end when hormones begin to take charge.

If I could give this one lower than a one-star rating I would. But the ending here is priceless! On top of it all, there is Amelie Nothomb toying with her readers’ expectations!

As her world shatters as easily as her bones, she learns to survive in the only way she knows how – by committing an act of deadly self-preservation her mother would have understood best.

Horrified by the pedestrian names her husband chooses for their unborn child Tanguy if it’s a boy, Joelle if it’s a girlLucette does the only honorable thing to save her baby from such an unexceptional destiny – she kills her spouse. There are snippets of feminist critique on motherhood, on ideals of beauty, etcthere are pointed comments on the process of learning and the limitations of the educational system, as well as lighthearted yet profound insights into anorexia.

The Book of Proper Names by Amélie Nothomb

Martin’s Press first published January 1st Quotes from The Nobres of Prope There are not so much dynamics in the middle arc. En esta novela sucede algo similar.

Las novelas se desploman al final. Nineteen year old Lucette murders her husband, not because he was bad, but becuase he was mediocre. At the finish ‘line’, she met Amelie Nothomb the author and she killed her as Amelie questioning and comparing the fate of her mother and hers.
