I was really disappointed in this. I liked "Pieds nus dans l'aube" but this was just boring, and kinda hard to follow in parts. I didn't have any real issues with it, or things that annoyed me like the last few books i read, but i really was just bored.

Once again, if we could give half stars, this would get 2.5, but at this point I'd rather round down than up.

2,5 en fait. J'ai énormément aimé la forme, l'idée de départ, mais pas mal moins où ça s'en va. J'avais peur que ça prenne cette direction, justement, et j'aurais espéré autre chose. Mais la poésie des mots de Félix Leclerc est magnifique.

Magique à certains moments mais je n'ai pas vu autant de magie dans la fin ....
