has anyone here read "the history of love" by nicole krauss?

im almost finished with it, and have been fascinated with its beauty since page one.

she is married to jonathan safran foer, and he is amazing too, as i assume all of you know.

any opinions on this novel?

i haven't gotten to it, alas, even though it's in my to-read pile. it sounds like it's more romantic than foer's stuff, which is good. do you think the postmodern aspects (like the novel within a novel thing) are handled well? i'm curious.

yes, very much so. i was wondering if the excerpts from the novel within the novel were real. i was tempted to look it up on amazon or something, just because its so gorgeous. but then i remembered its fiction. oops.

I read it. I didn't like the ending. AT ALL.
