Patrick Suskind's Perfume

Yes, I already was aware of Suskind's novel, "Perfume" which originated the movie... BUT this morning, while en route to work, someone read at the radio a page from the novel and... WOW, folks!

The road disappeared and for some loooong moments I stopped breathing... the description of a scent was awesome: rich, elegant, concise and balanced.... brilliant and poetic.

A masterpiece of words choice and evocative skill.

It changed my day... when having a coffee with my friend Luci, I told her about this and she almost screamed... she also read Suskind's book (and enjoyed the movie, like I did...) and, yes, she also knew about the power of this VERY story.
