67% done with Le Grand Meaulnes

The question of why did they keep it a secret so long seems obvious now, but at the time it made sense to not share the adventure. But if they had said something he would have had the chance to find the estate, find the girl.

And it’s like she knew when she made the comment that someone might be out there looking for her. Sad. Beautiful.

Hard to believe such a young man wrote this novel. What a genius we lost.
