Just finished the brilliant 'perfume' written by Patrick Suskind...its a quite marvellously imaginative and original book and should be a must for anyone interested in the romanticism of france and the intoxicating effects of perfume.

Just looked it up on Amazon and put it on the wish list waiting for the next $25 free shipping total. Sounds very interesting:

Upon its publication last year in Germany Susskind's first novel Perfume immediately became an international best seller. Set in 18th-century France, Perfume relates the fascinating and horrifying tale of Jean-Baptiste Grenouille, a person as gifted as he was abominable. Born without a smell of his own but endowed with an extraordinary sense of smell, Grenouille becomes obsessed with procuring the perfect scent that will make him fully human. With brilliant narrative skill Susskind exposes the dark underside of the society through which Grenouille moves and explores the disquieting inner universe of this singularly possessed man. The translation is superb.

you can read perfume in a criminology hand book. and the way of communication method of grenouille is merit to examine carefully.
