When you are feeling a little lost on this crazy journey called life
This is a warm and delicious read. It is the literary equivalent of a cup of hot cocoa with lashings of cinnamon sugar. Set on a floating bookshop housed on a barge on the Seine it tells the story of Monsieur Perdu. Perdu is a slightly eccentric self-professed literally apothecary. He prescribes books to help people through all of life’s ups and downs. (Often against their will) Like most of us, he is better at solving others problems than his own. This book follows him on a journey both literally down the river and metaphorically as he confronts his past, finds peace in the present and makes new friends along the way.
