Alex is book two in the Camille Verhoeven series by Pierre LeMaitre. The author is a French novelist and Screenwriter and, I believe, is very popular in France. European books are something I’m very curious about but since I’m limited myself to Scandinavian authors I thought I’d expand my horizons by reading a French book that isn’t a classic. I spotted this on Simon’s (Savidge Reads) booktube channel and he raved so much about it that I grabbed it immediately. Now don’t misunderstand me when I say failed to be impressed, it was a 3-3.5 star for me. Just not as amazing as others, mostly men, seem to think it is. The story was honestly horrifying, especially the reasons and the past that I felt nauseous for the most part.
