I can't say I enjoyed reading this book, because it makes much more uncomfortable reading than that, but I found it an absolutely fabulous book. What is more, I intend to re-read it straight away in the original English; I will be intrigued to see if there are any subtle differences in the narrative.
In whatever language you read it, though, be prepared to be shaken - and stirred too! In particular it should be compulsory reading for anyone of French nationality whose watchword is Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité!
