The Girl from the Chartreuse

The Girl from the Chartreuse - I'd give this book 3 and a half if I had the choice. I enjoyed it, but I'm uncertain how to rate it. A strange little book and because it is kind of about books and how lonely people can be (and it describes that pretty well), I did in fact think it was worth the read. However, I would have liked to read it in the original french and I would have liked to know all the literary references (but that's not the book's fault).
