    This book was very disturbing Think Pinky and the Brain but instead of an obsessive desire to take over the world, Gregoire and his rectangular shaped head is consumed with the desire to rape and murder Specifically to be able to rise to the same infamy and esteem as his mentor, and idol, the incredibly vicious and very dead Angoualima Gregoire hasn t had the best childhood and some of his experiences have made him quite an angry man as well as a misogynist While this book is very disturbi This book was very disturbing Think Pinky and the Brain but instead of an obsessive desire to take over the world, Gregoire and his rectangular shaped head is consumed with the desire to rape and murder Specifically to be able to rise to the same infamy and esteem as his mentor, ...

    This book was a slow burn, so I was expecting it to be fantastic as it progressed The ending was so anticlimactic I wouldn t pick it up again.

    A slim novel with a rather unique narrator angry, frustrated, misogynistic, and delusional Our dear Gregoire aspires to commit murder like his idol, a serial killer named Angoualima This is as much about the struggle of conscience as it is the frustration of the individual in relation to society.

    I m not sure what to think about this book It was kind of crazy and had so much build up throughout, but I m not sure it had the final climax or pay off that I was hoping for Interesting enough to keep me engaged and wanting to try someof Mabanckou s writing, but nothing I ll be shouting about.
