Et si c'étais vrai, 24 Oct 2007
I thoroughly enjoyed this book.The writing is deceptively simple and there are some witty repartees as well as some very sensitive passages. Each turn in the story completely surprised me.I could not put it down,
I enjoyed it even more after a visit to San Francisco and realized that I can now visualize the setting exactly. I have bought it in translation for my daughter who does not read French, but I am more than a little worried as I find the title different from how I would have translated it. 'If only it was true....'. I would have thought, 'What if it were true' might be a better suggestion. I hope it is not a too literal translation and so missing all the nuances of the original.
