André Gide

Les Faux-Monnayeurs (The Counterfeiters)

Category: Fiction | Published: 1925 | Review Added: 25-08-2009

Rating: 3 - Worth reading

(Qualifier: Ages since I read this.)

I'll be honest, I remember very little about this book. It is supposedly very clever and all about authenticity and stuff. I seem to recall that it involves various Parisian writers hanging out with teenage boys.

Perhaps this is the type of book that repays repeat readings; I couldn't make much of it. If it is very subtle and deep, it certainly doesn't give away its subtlety and depth readily. The characters did not involve me, and I don't recall a great deal of dramatic tension.
