Morning Train Reads: Hunting and Gathering

2-84263-085-8I finally finished Hunting and Gathering by Anna Galavada a few days ago — it is the longest book I’ve read in years. It is the story of three unlikely friends living in Paris who create their own unconventional family when their own families let them down. The book is character-driven, rather than plot-driven. In close to 500 pages, Galavada delves deep into each of character’s backstory, and explores the way their personal histories impact their relationships with others. I did feel that the book was a bit longer than it needed to be, but I enjoyed it. I noticed that there is a movie version, featuring the actress who played Amelie! Maybe I can watch it on Netflix someday.
