Often A Cure To 
considered a cure to The key to happiness and well being Well I thin This was a book that I came across by chance when browsing the translated fiction section of Waterstones and one which I initially reneged from buying iven its length On reflection though I decided to buy it and thoroughly enjoyed reading itThe novel is set in Paris of the early 1960s and primarily follows Michel Marin a teenage boy obsessed with reading and baby foot a form of table football played in the bars and cafes at the time Michel s parents married in 1946 his father having been held in a POW camp for much of the war and despite "being somewhat of an entrepreneur his mother s family look down upon him "somewhat of an entrepreneur his mother s family look down upon him his immigrant roots Through a visit to a cafe freuented by his older brother Michel becomes involved with a chess club run in the back room members primarily taken from those politically exiled from behind the Iron Curtain Through his friendship with these individuals in alternate chapters we become aware of their life stories the difficulty they faced while in their home lands and the reasons for their being in Paris these narratives interspersed with tales from Michel s own life usual teenage problems coupled with issues arising with family and friends related to the ongoing French Algerian conflictI have to say that I was engrossed in this novel from the start and found some of the stories from both Paris and the Eastern Bloc fascinating Given the book s critical acclaim in France I have no doubt that the finer detail of both setting and character is authentic and while one could perhaps argue that Michel is uite precocious particularly in his literary tastes knowing that France is still a nation that loves books this might only be because our society has dumbed down over a period of decades There are a few literary celebrities name checked in the novel Satre and Kessel to name but two and Doc Platoon Medic given their membership of the club I wonder whether the other Eastern figures are based on actual people I don t know anything about the Algerian conflict yet the effects of a colonial campaign rang true I also enjoyed the conflict of modernisation in the book with the tentacles of rock n roll enveloping Michel and his friends while his mother s family in particular tried to resist the need for change in the way they conducted their business venturesAll in all a book that I m reallylad I picked up particularly Life as a Healthcare CIO given my desire to read translated fiction If you have the time to invest in a 625 page novel I d highly recommend this one The first thing I did after finishing the book was to read the first chapter all over again Undoubtedly it made sense the second timeA big fulfilling novel with many different stories perfectly combined togetherInteresting plotreat structureThe reader becomes an invisible member of the club one of the patrons of Balto a distant observer of the lives of Michel and the others readathon17 book 34 a book you found through GoodreadsInstagramI absolutely loved this book Taking place in Paris during the 60s Michel is a teenager with family problems he doesn t like school he only likes reading books and playing table football He discovers a chess club that has members that are immigrants mainly from communist countries The book talks about Michel s everyday life and also about the stories of these people why did they have to leave their countries how are they living now in France etcI would not change one thing from this book There were no boring parts at all and it created an atmosphere I really enjoyed I could have kept reading it foreverI totally recommend it for everyone This book is a real em enriched with a stupendous plethora of enjoyable characters and a multilevel narration All that combined with real historical people or facts that have to do with totalitarian regimes the Cold War the WWII and whatever all those could imply create an astonishing resultThe life of the young Michel in early 60 s Paris who doesn t seem like a 12 and so on year old boy at all but that was a negligible flaw to me is affected by the class differences by the war in Algeria by the failure of a marriage by irls books and rock and roll music He is a young adult who will meet in a chess club a Anomalous Phenomena of the Interregnum group of men who have abandoned their lives in the East world leaving back the oppression of the socialistic totalitarian regime and their families too along with their dreams He will learn their stories and will take life lessons from themAn excelle Just brilliant.

Ly dead parents Odd how that isn t even mentioned when the 2 characters are introducedEspecially since they are friends with his brother and we all know that it would have been discussed at the Marini family table so that we should have heard of it from the start And it would not have taken away from the reading at all if done then rather than 150 pages later How handy that mum had to take care of the family business s finances on one Sunday so boy and da could have a day together on mother s day That probably actually happened to the author or I hope so for it to trickle into the action like that Otherwise it does read easily despite my doubts here and there but nothing reat I ll perhaps learn a few new things about the epoch okay but knew a lot already so it s not all that revealing as it oes along That s not why I m reading it anyway and I hope I m justified in continuing It has begun to offer some "truer promise in the book now that I m back in the "promise in the book now that I m back in the room with Michel so to speak starting to et to know the clubmembers of the preface but I ll miss the mum if she disappears or a couple of other single characters that have been left aside by the narrow viewpoint so far despite promising beginnings as they went by The first chapter preface I presume is still the best one to this page dialogue for one thing less of the narrow focus of the other 114 pages jejemoiononon I can at this point in the book only protest the editor s claim on fr that Jean Michel Guenassia r ussit un premier roman tonnant tant par l ampleur du projet ue par l authenticit ui souffle sur ces pages Authenticity no unless one wants to call a 12 15 year old s dreamworld authentic I found the figure of death in The Book Thief world authentic and it wasn t even trying to be so Well it is realistic that the young narrator claims the novel s title is Emma Bovary on p 51 but then isn t it the later narrator speaking there to be able to know better if he s such a literary wiz Or the real author or his editor Emma herself might have made that error with her ample if limited reading list but surely not her author Other than that some of the narrator s other actions reading while walking mutisme make sense for any time although 12 is a bit young for that Ah well the precociousness is the only other problem in many not all of the cases but then aren t all Parisians precocious another clich Le club des incorrigibles optimistes Now
I M Finished And Not 
m finished and not at having read it all twas close I can add Another few confusions turned up but only for details such as why weren t the 2 lyceens involved in the first year of the BAC in premi re which was extensive then than now by far It seemed this practical uestion was being avoided to ive Michel time to wander and see his buddies at the bistro or Camille at the cinema which is fine with me Otherwise now I m finished I see why I liked the first chapter I also preferred all of the parts with the Eastern Europeans although we might as well make it clear that the Russians and their war predominate leaving the other clubmembers to supporting roles especially the Greek with his choral catchphrase here and there I appreciate especially that they use On forms a lot less than the French characters even the older ones in the family except for the one scene in StP with the Russian family at the end where it showed up again as if Russian uses this eneral substitute for we too The parallels between the 2 parts of the story family tragedy and unexplained departures and between the effects of war are effective but I hope no seuel is planned with only the French characters It looks like it since the unexplained tales are in that half of the plotting It was much less well written and only interesting in parts as noted in the ealier part of this review What a marvelous book i read it with so much pleasure If it were for me it could have continued and continued i like the way Guenassia writes short clear sentences but filled with feeling I bought this book by chance so to speak i finished a horrible book and i had nothing to read on my way back home so i entered one of my favourite libraries ln Hamburg Heymanns and there it was i read the covers and i bought it in a second and i wasn t wrong Highly recommended I cried in the end another book added to the collection of books which made my cry inthe end Adichie Half of the yellow sun Susan AbulhawaThe story of Michel and the story of the expats the love stories the family stories the coming of age The young boy who takes photos of the Medici statue who learned to play chess The mysteri.
