49: La Vérité sur l'Affaire Harry Quebert, by Joel Dicker

I am done. I am finished with it. Can you believe it took me a month to read this book? Actually, considering that it was 860 pages, can you believe it took me only one month? It felt like AGES. AGES I TELLS YOU.

Now, you may think that the fact that I finished it speaks for my endurance and my tenacity, but no.

The only thing that kept me going was this book.

THIS BOOK, YOU GUYS.

GO READ THIS BOOK. In whatever language you like (don't read it in French if you're as slow as me, although the author writes with a wicked tone and rhythm).

This book is awesome. It is marvellous, or, as my new favourite language would put it, MERVEILLEUX. You won't want to put it down.

I don't even know where to start. The plotting is awesome. The crafting. The characters. The narration. The wicked humour in between. The tension. The whole mystery and the mystery of the mystery and --- well I don't want to tell too much. It's a crime thriller, but it's also a book about writing books, a book about people who write books, a book about books, a book about people - it's COMPLETEMENT FANTASTIQUE.

Go read it. Read it now.
