Book Review: Anna Gavalda, Someone I Loved

After Chloé’s husband leaves her for another woman, her father-in-law takes her and her two daughters to his country house. As their days together unfold Chloé finds that the misconceptions she had about the man are too simple to be acceptable, as their relationship changes into something more complex just as it seems as if it’s about to end. While I read this short novel in one sitting, the questions their similar though different and ultimately human situations raised about love, selfishness, selflessness, and, indeed, the self will remain with me for some time.
