Blood Wedding by Pierre Lemaitre was a fascinating new book to read. Initially, I was put off a little by the writing style - present tense, second person, POV and I wasn't sure if I liked it. The sentences were staccato, abrupt and the main character, Sophie, came across as a very unreliable narrator.
BUT! This was where the book got interesting. There have obviously been murders that Sophie believes that she has committed during blackouts. Her memory seems faulty.
And then we get introduced to Frantz, through a series of extremely fascinating diary entries. It was a doorway into a twisted, fanatical mind and through these diaries (without giving away plot) we learn more about the life of both Sophie and Frantz and their terrible, twisted histories.
Blood Wedding was an enjoyable, rip-roaring read, and I'm glad I persevered, because by the time I got halfway through the book, I didn't want to put it down until I'd finished.
This book has that page-turning-quality all readers want to find!
