‘Last Night in Montreal’ – Emily St. John Mandel

Aiya Napa, September 2015

Overview

The one where Eli writes his thesis, meets Lilia before she disappears which it turns out is the habit of a lifetime picked up from life with her father. Eli is invited to Montreal by Michaela, to find Lilia.

Thoughts

The best book I’ve read in ages. Layered throughout time, mysterious, haunting. Loved the issues around the language barrier and controversies regarding this in Canada. Loved the inextricable link between Michaela and Lilia.
