By: (1883-1915)

Élève Gilles is a beautifully written novel that is both heartbreaking and inspiring. The story follows the journey of Gilles, a young man who grows up in poverty but is determined to make something of himself. As he navigates the challenges of his upbringing, Gilles is able to find solace and purpose through his passion for education.

The author, André Lafon, does a fantastic job of capturing the struggles and triumphs of Gilles’ life. The characters are well-developed and the reader can't help but become invested in Gilles' journey. Lafon's writing is emotive and vivid, transporting the reader into the world of Gilles and making them feel every emotion right alongside him.

Overall, Élève Gilles is a poignant and compelling novel that explores themes of poverty, education, and personal growth. It is a story of resilience and determination that will warm the heart of any reader. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a touching and thought-provoking read.
