Les bons jours, un seul tir réussi - mais alors un tir parfait - suffit à lui donner la joie du travail accompli. Alors, le narrateur redescend de ce toit d'immeuble où il s'était embusqué pour tuer - dans cette ville sans nom, de longue date livrée à la guerre civile -, et il rent ...more

Le premier "ego shooter" de la littérature ? Un roman indispensable et bouleversant qui offre la possibilité de "voyager" dans l'âme de la guerre.
