Je reste perplexe après la lecture de ce roman. il offre une réflexion intéressante sur nos contradictions, nos choix, nos envie de passé que l’on estime meilleur et notre soif de modernité. Cependant je n'ai pas aimé la fin, le passage un peu fantastique.
C'est bien écrit, ça se lit vite et certaines réflexions sont vraiment intéressantes et pertinentes.
