Unforgivable

Unforgivable Review

Francis, a sixty-year-old author, has not written a word in the twelve years since his first wife and eldest daughter died in a tragic accident. Now his surviving daughter, Alice, a famous actress, has vanished, leaving her husband and twin daughters clueless as to her whereabouts. Francis’s second marriage of ten years, to Judith, is also falling apart, and his distress is compounded by his anxiety over Alice’s disappearance. He finds comfort in the company of an old friend, Anne-Marguerite, along with her son, JÉrÉmie, a laconic criminal attempting to remake himself in the outside world. But when Francis employs them to uncover evidence of his second wife’s affair and to help find his daughter, things go from bad to worse.

    Some Testimonial About This Book:

    Ce livre se lit en trois secondes et demie. J'ai beaucoup apprécié le style de Philippe Dijan, ainsi que le rythme de ce livre - on y rencontre de belles ellipses. Nous suivons la vie truffée de ma...

  • Laurent

    In his own style, Djian describes how a man, a writer, can't figure how to keep people around him. Touching but irritating, mature but childish, this man could have everything and has nothing. Parents...

    Could not finish this. Pretentious sounding and rambling. Then they die. Except the one you think was already dead. I should just give up on foreign book prize books....

    Perhaps I am not reading it correctly but it came across as distanced and cool and almost tough for a reader to get into the plot/writing. ...

    J'ai devore ce livre. Le style est un pur plaisir de lecture, et j'ai beaucoup aime la facon dont l'histoire se deroule a son prore rythme; on ne comprend pas tout des le depart et cela implique qu'on...

    Impardonnables sort ce mois ci au cinéma, adpaté par André Téchiné, avec André Dussolier, Carole Bouquet, Mélanie Laurent. Les critiques sont mitigées : le film ne saurait choisir entre ses di...

  • Alex Goetze

    Powerful, subtle, clear - a typical Djian. Decades after "Betty Blue" and "Pas de Trois" still a master of words, wrapping situations and moments into honest journeys. Less rebellion but still a cynic...
