Review

 This is a lovely, sweet love story. That's not to say that it's a completely clean, sex free novel, but the general feel of the story and building of the love between the two main characters is very sweet.

P.O. is a computer geek, while in many ways Auréle is his opposite. She lives in a silent world and has relied upon books to be entertained. P.O. or Olivier, as she calls him, falls for Auréle from the moment that he first sees her. He thinks that she has rejected his attempts to befriend her, not realising that she cannot hear him and feels that she is damaged due to her disability and so avoids company. Using technology to get to know Auréle, (in a slightly creepy way to be honest, but we'll let that slide) she manages to convince him that there is more to life than instant gratification.

I enjoyed this story and read it fairly quickly, wanting to know where it was going to go. There were a couple of very small irritations, but I think that this was more down to me than anything else. If you're looking for a nice, satisfying romance, then I don't think that you will got far wrong with this.
