    This novel is amazing.I am sitting here, reading the responses left by others, and what the hell Most of you are downgrading this book due to the lack of Rilke s message in this book For those of you who do not know Rilke, Rilke is considered one of the worlds greatest poets, as this was his first and only novel If you do
