A review by suchikaashyap
Eight White Nights by André Aciman


A very beautiful book where nothing happens and a result everything does. There was an element of being dragged out towards the end that seemed to sour the taste a wee bit but there were enough beautiful lines and sense of mystique about the book to keep the reader guessing provided you are patient.
It is one of those books that will keep a reader engaged or not at all and would entirely depend on their mood at the time.
You might find Clara prickly or smart, cruel or clever, sarcastic or funny. Oskàr as she calls him engages in a mental dialogue throughout the book and either you take to it or not at all.
Eight beautiful white nights or one big mental dialogue, the decision is yours.
