Reviews - What do customers think about Metaphysique Des Tubes?

Amazing  Dec 12, 2002
How do I review this book without sounding shallow?
This book combines depth, humor and a lot of sarcasm and that's,I think, what makes Amelie Nothomb's writings the best read i've had in years ( guess i'm a bit biased since I'm a huge fan of hers).
Although this is a sort of a biography of the author's early ages, the way it is narrated makes it highly intriguing in a twisted kind of way.
Note that this review is based on the FRENCH version of the book.
Made in japan  Dec 2, 2002
This is a very unusual auto-biography telling the story of a little girl from her birth untill she reaches four.
The beginning of the book is amazing, you really don't know where the writter is leading you-could this be reality, I mean is this every Human's reality or just a metaphoric approach of the beginning of our lifes...Are we just tubes that need a revelation to exist?
This would be the metaphysical part of the book-very exciting not all boring like it may seem- leading to a more "normal" yet very intriging story.
A fabulous tale written with an insatiable rythm inviting us into the world of a little Belgian girl born in Japan deeply touched by the grace and the culture of that country and surrounded by European and Japanese cultures in the same house.
I never thought a four year-old could have led such an interresting and sometimes so scary life.No violence, no blood only inner-fears we might all have felt one day.This reefers to the French version of the book.Phil-Nicole's husband.
