You Should Have Left: A Novel

You Should Have Left: A Novel - Daniel Kehlmann, Ross Benjamin https://msarki.tumblr.com/post/155758317348/you-should-have-left-a-story-by-daniel-kehlmann

One of the most difficult books to illustrate the reason for my giving it four stars. From the first day until my last I never had a handle on where even the minimal characters or myself ever were. Each day's entry into the journal developed the mystery further and resulted in an ending unexpected but somehow understood. Kehlmann has provided a short work in which to ponder and one day want to read again.
