it was ok
Read from January 26 to February 05, 2012

The book was a masterpiece. I only rated it OK because I found the main character to be so utterly amoral and despicable - it was a hard book to "like" - I begrudgingly admire the craft that went into creating such a monster, and at the same time making it so difficult to view the other characters sympathetically. An utterly dark, dreary existence chronicled in an exceptional way - I can see why this is considered by many to be Simenon's masterpiece. Give me Maigret most days of the week, though!
