    The narrator is a very serious character

    The protagonist and narrator of this book is a woman from Canada. She is determined to find her real love after breaking up with her Ex Dominique, who is described as mentally unbalanced and a stalker. Before her photo show up north, the woman moves to Biarritz for a period of five months. On her way there on the train she meets Vinnie, an artist, who is bound to Biarritz too where he has to “set something right” and he tells her about a gallery he knows well. After arriving in Biarritz, living in an apartment owned by Dominique’s aunt, the narrator wants to find Vinnie and therefore goes to look for the gallery, where she gets to know the owners Chantal and Micheline. They claim to never have heard from Vinnie and strangely, he is nowhere to be found. The Canadian woman though is determined to find out more about Vinnie and why everyone seems to change subject every time his name is mentioned. She also has to cope with her Ex-boyfriend contacting her on a regular basis. Honestly, I had some difficulties finding my way into the story. It took me some time to get used to the different language and style of the writing. Nevertheless, I did warm to it, and was quite hooked by the plot, although unfortunately it did have some weak points. I found it kind of interesting that the name of the Canadian woman is never mentioned. But that’s possibly why I didn’t connect with her the way I would have liked. I felt somehow at a distant to the characters. The friendship with Chantal and Micheline, if one can even call it that, is irritating and I didn’t really understand them. On the other hand, Chantal is entertaining in a way. The narrator is a very serious character, which given the title is very appropriate for the book. The story I did like, I just didn’t really connect with the characters, or that of the narrator. I rate it with an honest 3 stars.
