This review is for the audio version of Muriel Barbery’s The Elegance of the Hedgehog , Barbara Rosenblat’s masterful rendition of Renee Michel adds to the charm of this quirky French literary piece. The prose is rich with nuance and tone. The heroines, a autodidact concierge and a jaded precocious pre-teen, are unlikely candidates for their best selling roles and therein lies their charm. A familiar tale of disaffected youth and cynical middle age is twisted into new directions to engage the reader.

The book is available in other formats, including ebook. But the audio version is a special treat. :heart:
