Product Description

From the Back Cover

« Victor, mauvais sort, que fais-tu dehors ? »
Depuis quatre mois, cette phrase accompagne des cercles bleus qui surgissent la nuit, tracés à la craie sur les trottoirs de Paris. Au centre de ces cercles, prisonniers, un débris, un déchet, un objet perdu : trombone, bougie, pince à épiler, patte de pigeon...
Le phénomène fait les délices des journalistes et de quelques psychiatres qui théorisent : un maniaque, un joueur.
Le commissaire Adamsberg, lui, ne rit pas. Ces cercles et leur contenu hétéroclite sont de mauvais augure. Il le sait, il le sent : bientôt, de l'anodin saugrenu on passera au tragique.
Il n'a pas tort. Un matin, c'est le cadavre d'une femme égorgée que l'on trouve au milieu d'un de ces cercles bleus. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The book itself is good, although a bit strange. Some conversations seemed downright weird, but that may be that my French is not 100%. That said, if you are learning French, it's a good book to practice, since there is not that much slang in it.

The e-book was downright bad. The book is not broken up in chapters, so you can't tell how long you have left to read until the next chapter, just until the end of the book. Also, the e-book is so much more expensive than the paperback! If you don't need to look for definitions of words too often, buy the paperback.

I'd give it 4 stars if the e-book hadn't been so expensive and poorly made.

HASH(0xa40bc234) out of 5 stars Il s'agit d'une excellente histoire... Feb. 8 2014
By Enlightened - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Il s'agit d'une excellente histoire et très révélateur de Jean-Baptiste Adamsberg. J'ai lu huit des romans de Fred Vargas et celui-ci offre les mêmes aspects complexes d'un assassiner complexe tout en montrant un peu plus de Adamsberg comme un bonus.
