The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery

Leslie did a great job hosting, after coming back from her trip to Ohio. Bob H. brought a CD with the vocal from the opera from the book, We discussed the purpose for, and the meaning of existence. Muriel Barbery is an amazing 44 year old, married, philosophy professor/author. She hit a pretty good triple for this popular book. While we didn’t find it flawless it is very discussable. We touched on her other book with the same ‘set’, Une gourmandise in French, translated and titled as Gourmet Rhapsody in english, since we usually bring stuff from researching our books. The book was made into a French feature, the Hedgehog, or in French, Le Hérisson, which is available on Netflix, and helped me understand what happened. It’s a good book that expresses how like minded brains can find each other, and what they can teach each other, and why it makes sense to try to connect. We did it again tonight with this book. Well done book club!
