I read Alain-Fournier's Le Grand Meaulnes.It is a beautiful story of a young boy who visits his relatives for the summer. He is very happy with his summer stay, until one day he gets a letter that changes everything. The boy, Meaulnes, is unhappy and walks away from the family home. He becomes obsessed with the idea of finding his old home and returning to it. He travels the world and finally makes it back to France
I really enjoyed reading this book. It was a very easy and quick read, and I couldn't stop until I finished it. It had a lot of emotion in it, and it was really interesting to see what happened to this character.
I needed to write a literature review about Le Grand Meaulnes and Liseys Story books. I read Le Grand Meaulnes with pleasure and got an A+ for my book review. Alain-Fournier is a wonderful writer.
