review La princesse Hoppy ou le conte du Labrador ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub A zany jeu d'esprit Washington Post Book World 12 19 93 Delightful and full of fun Cleveland Plain Dealer 12 12 93 One of the strangest books that I have ever had the pleasure of reading completely and finding that I had not uite fully understood just what it is I was reading is Jacues Roubaud's The Princess Hoppy Roubaud takes advantage of language expectations of heroic fairy tales and postmodern perspective to create a story rife with intrigue suspense and mathematical puzzles The Princess Hoppy is an irreverent trip through out collective consciousness with elements familiar to everyone but with a bizarre twist making us realize just how it is we go about reading stories I have found the story to be educational and simultaneously fabulously entertaining This is one book that will be read many times and recommended as a positive and fun read Texture #.

review La princesse Hoppy ou le conte du Labrador ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub A postmodern fairy tale might best describe Jacues Roubaud's delightful book The Princess Hoppy or The Tale of Labrador How else to describe a novel that reads like an Arthurian romance as rewritten by Lewis Carroll with enough math puzzles to keep the game reader busy with a calculator for months the tale concerns a princess her faithful dog who happens to be a wiz at math four royal uncles always plotting four royal aunts always potting a lovesick hedgehog named Bartleby two camels named North Dakota and South Dakota four ducks who double as boats thus called doats and an amphibious blue whale named Barbara to name only a few Even the Sun has a speaking role There are dramatic abductions daring rescues passages in hitherto untranscribed languages Dog Grasshopper Duck tales of unreuited love allegorical interludes poems a playlet and much But no suspend.Jacques Roubaud ✓ 9 review
review La princesse Hoppy ou le conte du Labrador ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ers the author promises Finally there are 79 uestions for readers of the novel to see how closely they've been paying attentionfor ultimately The Princess Hoppy is a giddy inuiry into how we read literary works It is both an old fashioned tale and an ultramodern hypertext the oldest and the latest thing in fiction Exhilarating The chief pleasures of this book are its narrative inventiveness and vigorously related amusing parodies excellently translated by Bernard Hoepffner Mr Roubaud is a vivid and charming writer who seems to smile as he makes esthetic and philosophical points about the autonomy of fiction and the illusory nature of destiny He is over highly proficient at various forms of humor from the silly to the sophisticated When he does satirize the vanities of society his touch is light and never meanspirited New York Times Book Review 9 26 93.
