review L'Armée du Salut Ò eBook or Kindle ePUB An autobiographical comi. A perplexing achievement The language used creates a distance between the text and the reader The story is fairly common yet the result in somehow mysterious The language is very straightforward yet Taia comes off as profound One wonders how much of this is the translation and how much is due to Taia s mother tongue So much of our thinking is shaped by language instead of thinking doing the shaping and yet this influence is all but invisible to most peopleI hope to have a chance to read this short autobiographical novel againUPDATE Read this again in November 2016 Saw the movie and then searched out the book only to realize I had already read it the movie is only loosely based on the book So perhaps everything seems straightforward now because I ve read it twice and seen a screen adaptation
