Sign up for LibraryThing to find out whether you’ll like this book. Some stories are funny, some are sad, but they all feature characters who are searching for meaningful connections in their lives. I liked the cheeky narrator of this one, and the ending surprised me. This poignant story has, in my opinion, the best ending in the collection.

Je voudrais que quelqu’un m’attende quelque part (9 des 12 nouvelles)

A very short and somewhat depressing story. I really liked the dynamic between the narrator and her sister. This one just made me laugh.

This is another sad story, but I loved it. I absolutely gavslda the narrator in this story, which is one of the most lighthearted in the bunch. This was a fun and funny story, obviously meant to evoke the author herself.

An interesting way to end the book. Overall, I enjoyed this collection and am looking forward to reading her novel, Hunting and Gatheringwhich is already on my shelves.


Some lean towards chick lit, others towards depressed teen fiction, still others towards self-referential absurd-ditties. The style is lean, terse and understated, while it’s firmy rooted in everyday colloquial French, lending the whole a directness without which the tales would lose about half their effect. Recommended for brief, fluttering encounters and small-scale twists of anan reality. They all come vividly to life thanks to Gavalda’s unique writing style which is at once humorous and light yet deeply gafalda.

This is the second Gavalda book and there will very likely be more to come. Smiler69 Nov 7, Easy, short, ahna, yes, but also totally forgettable. I read this book twice, because I wasn’t sure if I had read it when I found it in my shelf – and couldn’t remember when I had finished it.

But since there was no feeling in my guts and no thoughts in my head afterwards, I think I just forgot the whole thing. It didn’t even take an effort to read through, which can be seen as a positive thing in this case. Home Groups Talk Zeitgeist.
