brigitte des coleres v 02 l'exterminacoeur(e)

L'exterminacoeur(e) - Jérôme Lafond Interesting but a bit too bizarre for my tastes. I can rationally see the style and the work put into the structure of the narrative but it left me cold. I do not for one minute engage with any character of the story. Not Brigitte, not Béatrice, not any of the charaters who do cameos in the story. Mental illness is a hard subject to tackle and the author does take the reader almost inside this undiscovered and dangerous country but it's not a place I wish to visit often or again.Still, 5 stars for style, 2 stars for my interest. In the end I read it because we are having the writer for a panel at the library soon, otherwise I would have stop at the first novel.
