    French Exit Free read ¼ 102 French ExitThis novel is unbelievable The family father mother son are unbelievably dysfunctional Their story is unbelievable There is a cat in this story who is unbelievable Their lives in New York and then later in Paris are comprised of unbelievable bits of the present day including unbelievable friends and would be friends mingled with unbelievable jaunts down memory laneSomehow Patrick de Witt takes all of this unbelievability wraps it up into a story and I read it with

    French Exit Free read ¼ 102 French ExitDid you ever read a book that was so bad but you had to get to the end just incase someone would say to you “ Ah But the ending made the bookshame you missed it” Well the beginning the middle or the end couldn't save this one from the one star ratingI have read The Sisters Brothers by this author and while I didn't love it I did like it as it was uirky and well written French Exit was was recommended to me for it’s wit and caustic sense of humor and if you are into that style of story then perhaps this is going to work for you but it certainly was a painful farcical and daft novel for me that had no likability factor to it The characters were so dislikable and ridiculously portrayed that I just couldn’t care less how they fared out A social comedy where the characters of Frances and Malcolm take centre stage Frances Price is in dire straits S

    French Exit Free read ¼ 102 French ExitI loved Patrick de Witt’s Undermajordomo Minor It was completely uirky and weird but seriously turned my crank Unfortunately while French Exit has a similar oddball sensibility this one fell uite flat for me The story focuses on mother Frances and adult son Malcolm As the story opens in New York Frances learns that all her money is lost after which she

    French Exit Free read ¼ 102 French ExitFind all of my reviews at “What’s the opposite of a miracle” Frances sat upright in her bed “How many letters” As soon as I started French Exit it seemed very familiar to me I went perusing my friends’ reviews and discovered Sam had experienced the same sort of déjà vu And that should be enough to let you know if you want to take a roll of this dice with this one There are no “sort of” Wes Anderson fans and if anyone tries to tell you they “kinda” like his movies you s

    French Exit Free read ¼ 102 French ExitPatrick deWitt has the remarkable ability to write brilliantly in different genres whether the fairy tale of “Undermajordomo Minor” the western of “The Sisters Brothers” or in his most recent book “French Exit” a comedy of manners The abundant wit satire and skewering of the wealthy made this an entertaining read but the infusion of death throughout the book detracted from what I anticipated based on the book’s subtitle I appreciate dark humor but at times it seemed to weigh down the sheer delight of the book Still it’s definitely worth reading for the smart and sophisticated humor sparkling dialogue the wonderful major and minor characters deWitt creates and his ability to write so convincingly from a woman’s point of view
