Publisher's Summary

Au XVIIIe siècle vécut en France un homme qui compta parmi les personnages les plus généreux et les plus horribles de son époque. Il s'appelait Jean-Baptiste Grenouille. Sa naissance, son enfance furent épouvantables et tout autre que lui n'aurait pas survécu. Mais, Grenouille n'avait besoin que d'un minimum de nourriture et de vêtements, et son âme n'avait besoin de rien. Ce monstre de Grenouille, car il s'agissait bel et bien d'un genre de monstre, avait un don, ou plutôt un nez unique au monde et il entendait bien devenir, même par les moyens plus atroces, le Dieu tout-puissant de l'univers, car "qui maîtrisait les odeurs, maîtrisait le cœur des hommes".

C'est son histoire abominable... et drolatique qui nous est racontée dans Le parfum, un roman qui, dès sa parution, eut un succès extraordinaire et est devenu très vite un best-seller mondial.

    "Un tour de force"

    I loved this book in English, read by the incomparable Sean Barrett, and was delighted to find it released in French. Even though I'm half-french and fluent, I'm a bit rusty and the language in the book is not easy. It is however beautiful and very well narrated.

    If your french is good I would highly recommend it. I would recommend the English version even more.
