Place. Readers with the patience and tolerance to read fiction that relies on neither plot nor character are those most likely to enjoy reading Patrick Modiano’s novel titled, So You Don’t Get Lost in the Neighborhood. I enjoyed the ways in which Modiano presented a sense of place and the exploration of memory. The atmosphere he creates comes to life in ways that entertained me. A few months ago, I read his book, Suspended Sentences, in which he did much the same thing. I may skip the rest of the Modiano oeuvre now that I think I get his shtick.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
