I loved the character of Jean-Pierre Fabre. A 67 year old somewhat curmudgeon type of man, at least he tries to be, who has just woke from a coma in the hospital. He has no idea how he got there and why he was recovered from the Seine.
You would think that a story that takes place in one hospital room over a period of several months would be a kind of boring story. However, the author has added several quirky characters each with a different exchange with Jean-Pierre.
I loved John-Pierre, his crustiness and his big heart.
Thanks to Pushkin Press and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
