This Man and Me Some beautiful moments It's the first adult book i read and it was definitely good Either I didn’t understand this book at all or it was poorly written I feel like it was all over the place it had some good points of meaning but it was really hard to focus on and to understand the underlying meaning behind most of the passages Alison was a friend of mine in College and when I saw that this book was recently nominated for the Dublin IMPAC Literary award I eventually got around to reading it Its original and very well written and I was suitably impressed Until her French father walks out of her life at twelve Helen Wilton is Hélène Fournier As well as getting a new name the plucky smart and affectionate young girl also gets a lesson in the unreliability of loveHelen grows up to become a mass of intriguing contradictions as warm hearted as she is sharp witted as steadfast in her friendships as she is eclectic in her loves as worldly and stylish as she is poetical and academic And when she get tripped up by the contradictions or by the absurd and confusing vagaries of love Helen picks herself up and gets on with it because she's too much of a one off to wait around to be rescuedMayble she'll never stop having to pick herself up Or maybe she'll realize that rediscovering the inner Hélène and facing the loss of her father are the keys to her future and to finding real loveIn this stunning debut novel Alison Jameson has created a captivating heroine and wirtten a wonderfully witty tender knowing and truly original story of modern love
