Je suis une lâche, un grosse feignasse. J’ai pas loin de 5000 pages de Dumas qui m’attendent dans ma PAL, reparties sur 4 volumes comprenant les Mohicans de Paris, Olympe de Clèves et La San Felice. Et je ne compte pas Le chevalier de Maison-Rouge en poche. Et voilà que je ne trouve rien de mieux à faire que de me rabattre sur un tout petit livre riquiqui, de 96 pages, plus petit qu’un livre de poche, vaguement apparenté à un fascicule. Donc oui je une feignasse mais je m’assume.

Tout petit livre

What the daughter did to the father?
Or both?

For some reason, it bothered me and I couldn't enjoy it as much as the others, but isn't that how we're supposed to feel about crimes after all?
