What the community says about The Lover
- "The Lover is a novel about a 15 year old French girl and her 27 year old pedophilia lover in unstable pre war Vietnam. It is a book of stony silence, of a family that can't express emotion. While the book has its problems it still manages to draw the reader in enough to be dignified as great literature."
- "This novel is a compelling and bittersweet tale of love among differences of race and culture. It gives an eye opening look into little things people who pair with similar backgrounds may not experience, and for that, I appreciate it. The writing is a bit flat, and more emotional than visual, but what it says is more important than how it's said."

- "There was very little enjoyment in this book. While it was thought provoking and touching considering the trouble the French woman had to go through to be with her Chinese lover, focusing on the negative to the extent this book did just felt off putting. The tone was set, we felt the pain and emotion but it just kept going in the same way for a long time. "
