Amazon Link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0140120831/
Genre: Historical, Mystery
Recommended for awisls: Highly Recommended
This is one of the most original and unusual books I’ve ever read. I think it’s in a genre of its own. The other book that has left such an impression on me, deserving its own genre, is “The Master and Margarita” by Bulgakov, and it says a lot. People love to discuss this one. There’s even a movie with late Alan Rickman. I could talk about “Perfume” very long, but something tells me I’m a bit late to the party. A lot has been said and written. All I can say now is that I recommend this book to those who want to read something extraordinary and original that is not bound to a single genre, and also to the awisls, who will benefit greatly from reading such a masterfully written novel.
Also, the translation by John E. Woods is stunning. I’m not sure I have ever read such an amazing translation.
