An intriguing concept but an unconvincing tale.
30 August 2019
An intriguing concept but an unconvincing tale. If one was convinced of one’s impending demise and provided with the means and skills to carry out the murder/execution of worthless people would that be considered a worthy project? This story translated from French contains too many complications to provide a convincing response. The protagonist is not only unworldly but psychologically troubled. The persuading others might be more credible but I was not surprised by the need to provide a evermore complicated narrative. I was disappointed. It could have been better.
