Rated 5 out of 5 by from "all my beautiful lovely safe world blew itself up here with a gust of highly explosive love.." This book is for anybody who ever dreamed of getting away- of escaping the monotony of their life to the high life- living on the French Riviera, partying in Paris. But there's more to it than that. Tender is the night is a heartbreaking story and the first book to make me cry at 16; the characters are broken but they seem so beautiful; impenetrable at first. the best part are the quotable lines and heart-clenching passages.
