The Elegance of the Hedgehog

Now that I'm on break and don't have to read quite so many psychology books this week, I was able to finally finish my book, "The Elegance of the Hedgehog."

I really loved this book. It includes many references to European culture {literature, art, music and philosophy}, some of which I knew, some of which I had to look up. Because of this, I believe the book made me a bit smarter. About half-way through I did get tired of the pessimism of the characters {enough whining already!}, but if you can stick to it through those hard times you won't be disappointed. The last third of the book is much brighter, focusing on what's important in life - the beauty in the world around us.
