    Extremely disappointing

    At the Giller prize ceremony I thought Michelle Winters was fun and was hoping she would win. So I rushed to buy the book. It is indeed a page turner but for the wrong reasons. What a disappointment! Her choice of characters is offensive to the French population of New Brunswick; Rejean and Agathe are depicted as being stupid, with a vocabulary of about 20 words half of them English. Even the colonel, a true Frenchman, makes mistakes in his language. Why use so much French when the author doesn't possess its basics. The plot doesn't hold water and, as you turn the pages to discover some sort of Epiphany, you end up realizing that you've wasted your time. Good thing it's a short book.

    Like a fable

    Short and memorable. Dreamlike, but rooted in a very specific time and place.

    I am my truck.

    I liked it. Didn't understand all the french but most; I liked the bilingual nature of the book. But mostly I found the story good, a page turner, and enjoyably surprising. I would read more Michelle Winters.

    I am a Truck

    This book was just okay for me. The characters were interesting, but not really believable. The plot was okay, but the ending left me wanting. I don't read much French at all, so that was really annoying.
