When you are reading it, you find that the mystery is a love story. But as it unfolds, you find out there is alot of trickery going on. At times, the investigation into what happened to Nola was very repetitive.
The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair by Joël Dicker
Also, the bits between Marcus and his mother could have been cut out entirely as well as the parts about the presidential election. Neither really progressed the story. But I liked how Dicker wrote his characters and I did like the twists to the mystery. But I wasn't crazy how things were tied up neatly in a bow at the end.
But I do think the mystery and the process of solving it and proving Harry innocent was engrossing. Skip to main content. Mobile Library Services are cancelled today. Why did you decide to add the element of definite moral ambiguity to Harry? The whole book is meant to look at love in many different forms.
The way we use the word 'love' in French is very different to how it is used in America for example. In America it is often used almost as a throwaway to your friend, your parents, your great-aunt. So I was looking at love rather than trying to cross a line of morality; in the book there is no sex described between Harry and Nola. Your depiction of the book trade is very colourful. When you finally did get your own book deal, what was the biggest difference you found in how publishing works?
Not much difference! However, the book is about a bestseller but only from the American point of view.

I had no concept of the worldwide book market and now I've seen many countries and learnt how they publish differently from each other. I've found that very interesting. The book is already a bestseller in several countries. Have noticed any national differences in how readers respond to the book?
The good thing is that I have had very similar positive feedback from all the countries. This is great because it means that even though my words have been translated the feelings and message still get through. The novel is certainly very vivid and could probably be adapted for film or television relatively easily.
