‘French Rhapsody’ by Antoine Laurain

french-rhapsodystarstarAfter thoroughly enjoying The President’s Hat and The Red Notebook by this author, I was so looking forward to his next one, but unfortunately it is completely different and quite disappointing.

The premise is great: Alain Massoulier receives a letter that was lost in the postal system for decades. It contains an offer from a recording company–thirty-three years too late. The letter is a catalyst for him to get in touch with The Holograms, his former band members, but this results in a boring description of a number of different characters, almost like separate vignettes, and the thread of the story gets lost. This third book was not nearly as enjoyable and entertaining as the other two.
