Life A User's Manual

Life A User's Manual - Georges Perec, David Bellos To that old imponderable question, "If you were going to be stranded on a desert island, and you could only take one book with you...?" I now have my answer. Because I think that it would probably take decades of rereading to completely exhaust this book. It's not that it's full of lofty or difficult ideas. It's just full. I was on about page 235 when suddenly realized that embedded within the sections, the book is rife with puzzles! I didn't go around trying to solve them, but I did congratulate myself when I noticed them.

I really loved this book, and could have happily gone on reading it for another 500 pages.
