book review by ruru - vol. 4

Hello there, it’s been a while! I haven’t had much time to read the past few months so finally, here’s the new book review!


1. Vita Brevis: A Letter to St Augustine by Jostein Gaarder / 『フローリアの「告白」』ヨースタイン・ゴルデル ー Norway

The author, Jostein Gaarder found a letter in Buenos Aires, Argentina and based his book off of it. The letter was written by a woman who was a lover of Augustine of Hippo, who was a Christian theologian and philosopher in the 4th century. We don’t know if Gaarder actually found the letter or he made everything up but either way, I thought it was a very romantic and exciting book as a history lover.
