A collection of moralistic fables from the french author Jean de La Fontaine, which didn’t really work for me. I thought the moralistic part of it was a bit too obvious and I prefer it to be a little bit more subtle. I was also not familiar with these (as I have been with the fables from for example Aesop’s fables), so there was little nostalgic feeling from my sight.
The quote however, is very true:
‘The pleasure is twice as sweet
When you cheat a cheat.’
The World is Full of Foolish Men (Little Black Classics #83) – Jean de la Fontaine
Hope you enjoy your next read more!

That’s the problem with these collections, you love some, and others, not as much…
