Summary

La nouveauté de l'auteur français le plus lu au monde : un roman aussi addictif qu'une série télé!

Je me souviens très bien de cet instant. Nous étions face à la mer. L'horizon scintillait. C'est là qu'Anna m'a demandé :
"Si j'avais commis le pire, m'aimerais-tu malgré tout ?"
Vous auriez répondu quoi, vous ?

Anna était la femme de ma vie. Nous devions nous marier dans trois semaines. Bien sûr que je l'aimerais quoi qu'elle ait pu faire. Du moins, c'est ce que je croyais, mais elle a fouillé dans son sac d'une main fébrile, et m'a tendu une photo.
- C'est moi qui ai fait ça.
Abasourdi, j'ai contemplé son secret et j'ai su que nos vies venaient de basculer pour toujours. Sous le choc, je me suis levé et je suis parti sans un mot. Lorsque je suis revenu, il était trop tard : Anna avait disparu. Et depuis, je la cherche.

Intense et captivant, un cold case aussi addictif qu'une grande série télé.

My first French audible book

Having not spoken French for about 30 years, I struck on the idea of reintroducing myself to the language, and modernising my vocab, by listening to French audio books. I chose this one because of its good reviews, and because it was modern. It was a great choice. The narrator was excellent - really clear diction, and an accent that was easy to understand. The story isn't too complicated, and neither is the vocabulary, which made the book ideal for a starter. I really like the character of Marc, and would have enjoyed another book just about him.
The story was fairly predictable (which again was probably good!), but that's not to say that there wasn't any suspense or excitement. I did think the whole premise was fairly shaky however, as our 'hero' really shouldn't have done a runner without giving the love of his life time to explain her shocking revelation... also, once we got to Brooklyn, some of the forensic stuff seemed fairly shaky... but anyway, I was just thrilled to be understanding it! The ending too was a little weak. So as crime fiction, I wouldn't really rate it if you are a seasoned listener, but as a nice, engaging story, I thought it was pretty good. On finishing, I immediately bought another Guillaume Musso audible book with the same narrator.

Riveting story!

Would you listen to La Fille de Brooklyn suivi d'un entretien inédit avec l'auteur again? Why?

I normally am not drawn to mystery as a genre, but because I have read another of his books, I thought I would give this one a try. Wow - what a great surprise! Altho the book gets quite dark in places (and that's not something I tolerate easily), the rise and fall of the plot were riveting - a real page turner! And yes, I am already listening again. The twists at the end made me realize that I would have to listen to the whole story a second time because the new information which was revealed would change the way I viewed all of the developments up until that point. I don't know that I've ever read another author who switched from first person to third and back again, just to be able to give a 360 degree account of all parts of the unfolding story. Brilliant!Musso has amazing powers of description, and is a master at infusing his characters with very colorful and complex personalities. Another factor which draws me to him as an author.

What other book might you compare La Fille de Brooklyn suivi d'un entretien inédit avec l'auteur to and why?

As I mentioned earlier, this is not a genre I am drawn to, so I'm not really able to make a comparison.

Which character – as performed by Rémi Bichet – was your favorite?

Raphael - the main character - was definitely my favorite. A true gentleman in every situation. A man who loved his fiancee with his whole heart, and appreciated the littlest things about who she was and what she brought to the relationship. I loved that he would leave no stone unturned to find her after she disappeared. His instincts in looking for clues were brilliant and his powers of deduction, intriguing. I loved seeing the trust that he had in his friend, the former policeman / investigator. A real bond of friendship and trust. And I loved the delight that he found in his infant son, how he talked about the incalculable blessings of being a parent.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes!!! Normally I am not in a hurry to finish a book I am listening to. But once I started this one, it was such a page-turner that I actually took one whole day of my vacation to just listen to the rest - all the way to the end! So glad I did!

Any additional comments?

The recording artist is very gifted, and uses his voice to 'embody' so many different personalities throughout the story. So convincing! My only additional comment is re: the pace of the audio recording. French is my second language, but I grew up in France and have spoken the language since childhood. I listen to books in French on a daily basis, recorded by a wide variety of artists, and never have trouble "listening fast enough". With this audio recording, I had to slow it down to 85% to hear things clearly. I hasten to add that I'm sure a native speaker would probably not have this problem. Nevertheless, I would encourage him to slow down his pace a bit.

La narration: un tour de force, mais l'intrigue...

Rémi Bichet est un maître de la narration. Il y a plus d'une douzaine de personnages dans ce roman, hommes, femmes et enfants, et il arrive à modifier sa voix et ses intonations de manière magistrale pour assurer la distinction entre chaque personnage.

Pour le roman, en revanche, l'histoire est compliquée au point d'être tirée par les cheveux. Il y a des coincidences invraisemblables, des événements dont l'occurrence reste inexpliquée, et des révélations délivrées de manière un peu trop aléatoire. Même à la fin, tout n'est pas bien enveloppé avec noeud et papier cadeau. Cela dit, l'histoire vous tiendra quand même en haleine.
