Summary

Laura se pose beaucoup de questions. Comment réussir sa vie ? Est-il possible de manger tout ce que l'on aime sans prendre dix kilos ? Comment trouver l'amour ? Trop de doutes pour être heureuse, trop d'envies pour se contenter du banal...

Jusqu'au jour où un accident va complètement effacer sa mémoire. La voilà à nouveau débutante face à la vie, obligée de tout redécouvrir : les bonbons, les soutien-gorges, les garçons, l'électricité et les lois qui gouvernent l'Univers... Libérée des a priori, portée par un cœur affamé et un cerveau qui se cherche, Laura entame une aventure unique et hilarante. En ne sachant plus rien, elle a peut-être enfin une chance de devenir elle-même...

Gilles Legardinier confirme brillamment qu'il n'a pas son pareil pour allier le rire à l'émotion. Qui n'a jamais rêvé de tout oublier pour recommencer ? Attention : les scènes de cette comédie sont vécues par des non-professionnels, il est vivement conseillé de les reproduire chez vous !

Hilarious from time to time

I deliberately choose modern French audiobooks, because I want to keep my French language skills current, so from that point of view, this book fitted the bill perfectly. However... it took me a long time to get into it. This was firstly because the narrator doesn't speak very clearly, and secondly because of the amount of slang. Once I got used to the narrator's style (which I came to enjoy - it did fit the main character), and accepted that a fair bit of the humour would go over my head because I missed the nuances, things got much better. I found the premise of the story a bit shaky, but I guess this was just a means to an end, because the point of this book is to philosophise on the flaws in our self-obsessed, materialistic modern society. But the shallowness of the storyline didn't really complement the depth of the message, and I found the secret admirer thing frankly creepy. However, there were plenty of laugh out loud moments, and it was reassuring to learn that modern French society is as screwed up as modern British society, and I learned a plenty of slang I didn't know before! I'm not sure I would wholeheartedly recommend the book - I certainly wouldn't recommend it as a first foray into French audible - but it definitely had its moments!
