Having listened to all of his previous books, I was surprised at what seemed a slow and predictable start. It was so unlike his other stories that I thought there had to be more to it so I kept listening. So very glad I did. It takes on a fantastic twist and is in true Pierre Lemaitre style. Wonderful.
This psychological thriller is the fourth Pierre Lemaitre book that I have 'read'. Blood Wedding is a well orchestrated well crafted story, sometimes horrific and bloody, and full of evil. I cannot give it 5 stars simply because, although very good, it does not match his book Alex. I suggest you read Irene and Alex first and if this gives you an appetite for this author, then you will want to read this too (although they are unrelated).
