    2 and a half stars For a writer that receives as much praise as Goethe, this book was pretty superficial The plot of an older man trying to woo younger women has been seen in numerous works over the years Balzac s Cousin Bette comes to mind But this story never goes anywhere It is not a torturous read, or a bad book I can t say many negative things about it But on the other hand, I can t say many positive things about it If you have nothing else to read, then this will be OK But I would 2 and a half stars For a writer that receives as much praise as Goethe, this book was pretty superficial The plot of an older man trying to woo younger women has been seen in numerous works over the years Balzac s Cousin Bette comes to mind But this story never goes anywhere It is not a torturous read, or a bad book I can t say many negative things about it But on the other han...
