Publisher's Summary

Elsa est une enfant solitaire et sa seule amie est sa grand-mère. Mais un jour, la vieille dame meurt : la petite fille fera son deuil en allant transmettre des lettres que sa grand-mère avait écrites pour de nombreux destinataires : lettres d'excuses, de regret et d'amour. Elle comprend petit à petit que les contes qu'elle lui racontait s'inspiraient de personnages bien réels.

Delightful!

I wish more of my friends spoke French. This is a beautiful story with a narrator who makes it so personal that I laughed and cried. Mostly I laughed, over and over.

One breath novel

It's the first time I listened to a book by Backman. What an unexpected brilliant novel. Several stories - realistic and of fantasy- are narrated in parallel and they all joined together in an emotional funny story. The characters follow the same structure, the females characters are strong. The male ones show their weaknesses in a relationship pleasant way. I don't tell any details, but really worth listening. Also the narrator - in French- did a very good job.

For children and adults, maybe especially adults

Backman is a remarkable author: a super story teller with enormous human compassion and deep understanding of the human spirit. His play with language is delightful. The humour is through out. This French version is superbly performed by Bernard Gabay. Anglophone Audible customers deserve access to this book. Keep on writing Frederik Backman!

C'était un livre parfait pour moi

J'ai aussi acheté le version en anglais, pour que je puisse mieux comprendre le livre audio.
