The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barberry

I admit that I picked this book because of the title. I have a pet hedgehog and for some reason thought this would be a good read. I tried the book on audio and just could not get in to it. I did not find the book's main characters at all likable. Renee Michel, the 54 year old concierge of a luxury Paris apartment building was a bombastic snobbish bore. Twelve year old Paloma was not much better. I opted not to torture myself by forcing myself to finish the book. I am not listening to Michael Scott's "The Magician" - a much more enjoyable and interesting story. Check back for the scoop on this book.
