Description

When Eva and Adam fall into bed one Friday night, tired and happy after drinks with friends, they have their whole lives ahead of them. But their story ends in the first few minutes.

That's no reason to stop listening, though, because How I Lose You is a story told backwards - and it's all the more warm, tender and moving because we know it is going to be interrupted.

It's a story Eva thought she knew - but as you and she will discover, it's not just the ending of the story that she got wrong.

A must-read!

A bookseller who had not yet read this novel told me that it seemed depressing. How wrong she was! Although grief is obviously present in the book, it provides a stark contrast to bliss, joy, love and life, as depicted with great accuracy, realism and subtlety in all the moving, intimate and often very funny memories of late teens growing up in the 21st century.

On their way to adulthood, the protagonists have their microcosm and beliefs challenged by a globalized world, made of places and people scarred by politics, wars and conflicts, old and new. While these young adults experience History being written in front of their very eyes, the last remains of innocence give way to existential questions on good, evil, identity, human relations and life choices.

The very clever construction of the novel mimics a world which has been shattered into pieces by the brutal loss of a loved one. Each remaining fragment reflects a memory of everyday life, and as the pieces come back together, they create a powerful bond between the reader and the characters, making their experience of loss, love and rebirth all the more intense.

This book is a real page turner, and the voice acting of the audio version breathes even more life to the witty dialogues. French readers struggling with the vocabulary can read the very nice translation named: "La Fêlure". Can't wait for Kate McNaughton's next novel!
