The Peculiar Life of a Lonely Postman by Denis Theriault - Good

A sweet little book, if a little strange. (What is it about me and strange books?)

Bilodo is a postman in Toronto. He lives a quiet solitary life apart from odd occasions when a fellow postman drags him out and tries to set him up with various females. But Bilodo has a secret. He opens peoples' personal letters and read them before he delivers them. In particular he reads those sent to Grandpre by Segolene. They are the letters that have captured his imagination and his heart, for week by week she sends a single haiku and he is fascinated, copying each one to re-read before sending it on to its rightful owner.

Of course, this being a story, it can't just continue like that. A sudden event disturbs this little pasttime.

The book itself works like a haiku. If I explain that, then I spoil the ending.

A lovely, sweet little book and a nice quick read.
