En refermant ce livre, je l’ai trouvé un peu vide… avec pas mal de remplissage…

Après réflexion, c’est justement ce qu’il exprime. Le vide de la disparition, du manque. Un ami disparu un soir de fête alors que tout était simple et insouciant. En vacances sur l’Île de Ré, avec une bande copain à jouir de l’amitié, des flirts, de la légèreté des 18 ans.

… un peu vide quand même

I was at the metro station waiting for my bus. I was only a few steps away from the bus stop and I still missed the bus because I got so caught up reading the last few pages of the book.

this book definitely gives off a been there done that vibe in terms of first gay love. but it is heartbreaking and very beautiful. this book is translated from French and the writing flows so well! the way this book is sectioned off to the perfect shortness of it to the haunting last line.. perfection! i can see myself rereading this one way with a non-library copy and soaking in the words more. this story does a lot of telling instead of showing and it does so in a way that places you in the shoes of the main character and develops the characters through metaphor and flashback… (mais)

On reflection, this was a beautiful short read. I came very close to tears welling in my eyes, which for me is the equivalent of effusive weeping for regular schmucks. Ringwald's translation is sensitive and elegantly pitched; the whole affair is draped in a kind of fragile grace.
(My only complaint is both minimal and mundane, and directed at the translator, the one and only Ms. Molly Ringwald. I think we need to retire the use of the word "sex" as a noun describing the genitals. It's a little too... Lawrence Durrell.)… (mais)
