This is another novel by Amelie Nothomb, in which she decides to ask the question “What if?”. What if somebody dies in your apartment? What if you don’t call an ambulance? What if you exchange his identity card and driving license with yours? What if you just take his life, home and wife and make them your own?
This is not a crime story, although it doesn’t lack crime intrigue. This is not a psychological book, although the story reveals the main character’s psychological characteristics very well. This is not a comic novel, although it makes us laugh a lot. In fact, what is it? Just another novel by Amelie Nothomb.
