Five stars for the first 175 pages seven stars for the twenty pages 75 to 95 about the Charlie Hebdo attack and immediate aftermath when discovered and his first days in the hospital the most riveting thing I ve read in a while possibly ever The language throughout seemed to convey its original French flavor definitely felt uickly or literally translated at times freuent typos suggest some haste but the underlying intelligence seemed always generous insightful attentive and apt to describe in high literary Euro style not at all concerned with aerodynamics or conserving word count just on the good side of prolix The author is the type of patient who sneaks Proust into the operating room and his thoughts freuently filter through literary allusion to help him endure his recovery ordeal But I felt it could ve used stringent editing through the first 50 pages although I loved the Houellebec and Charlie Hedbo bits and the last 250 or so It went on too long for me I hit a wall around page 230 and I accelerated my reading at that point until the moving epilogue about his unguarded after life beyond the hospital It s ultimately a memoir about the alternate reality of extended hospital existence and undergoing multiple serious surgeries all with armed guards outside his room protecting him and dynamics with various caregivers His portraits of his murdered colleagues and their spirited creativity and craziness the Houellebec passages and the pages about the attack itself being left for dead and then discovered alive albeit seriously wounded are worth the price And if you have patience and interest in 300 bed bound pages you re in for a treat

    I wanted to read it for the convalescencerecovery story and had prepared myself to wince and bear it through the French nationalistislamophobic crap i would have to wade through In the end the latter was worse than expected so many descriptions of Lançon's fear every time he crosses paths with 'an Arab' which made it hard to focus on the destruction of the selfreconstruction story which was itself undermined
