Recommended for: people that can read french
Read in October, 2005

the idea of this book, pretty cool. a rich man with seven daughters decides that the eighth will be a boy, correct equipment or not. and of course the boy grows up mad spoiled frets about his death and there you go. not that original, but not that uninteresting. but a lot of the book gets lost in translation. my professor worked to give us a more accurate translation but i think the kick dissolves en anglais...read it in french
