Description

August 30, 1975: the day of the disappearance. The day Somerset, New Hampshire, lost its innocence. That summer, struggling author Harry Quebert fell in love with 15-year-old Nola Kellergan. Thirty-three years later, her body is dug up from his yard, along with a manuscript copy of the novel that secured his lasting fame. Quebert is the only suspect.

Marcus Goldman - Quebert’s most gifted protégé - throws off his writer’s block to clear his mentor’s name. Solving the case and penning a new best seller soon merge into one. As his book begins to take on a life of its own, the nation is gripped by the mystery of The Girl Who Touched the Heart of America. But with Nola, in death as in life, nothing is ever as it seems.

"A tour de force, this seems set to be a huge success" ( Metro)
"Quietly compulsive…with a deliciously shocking twist" ( Daily Express)

A beautifully crafted crime-thriller!

What did you love best about The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair?

I thought that the narrator, Robert Slade, did a great job of the characters, giving them life and nuance.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favourite character was Galloway, a gruff detective who hates Goldman at the start but deep down is looking for justice

Which scene was your favorite?

The scene where Galloway befriends the narrator.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A small town can only have so many secrets.

That s what I call bad writing

Bad, bad, really bad!!

Sometimes it just hurts to keep on reading. The worst of all, the parts with the mother of the character.

No bestseller in my opinion

Would you listen to The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair again? Why?

No. I'm half way and sit it out but never again.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I'm hoping it will get better but up till now it is a drag. Over sentimental and nothing really happens.

What three words best describe Robert Slade’s performance?

Not too bad but there are better narrators.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No.

Any additional comments?

My husband read it and told me about it. So I got interested, also because it was a nr one on the bestsellers list here in Holland. But I'm disappointed. I'm afraid it was a waist of time, so far. I still hope it will get better, but I'm afraid it won't.

thumbs down

This is the worst book that I have ever heard and does not even deserve one star. I had difficulty going on hearing it. The storyline, the dialogues are so bad, I wonder how this book got printed. The last words were really uncanny. Those who already heard them will know what I mean. I was glad the book was over!!!
