Imagine retiring from the daily grind at the age of 35 and opting to live out the remainder of your days in a retirement home filled with moody senior citizens. This is exactly the life that fatalist Antoine chooses for himself. It’s a philosophical experiment—he wants to see what life is like “stripped of all diversions.” Narrator Bronson Pinchot is a solid choice to portray the larger-than-life persona that is Antoine. Calling for empathy from the listener, Pinchot's voice is at once personable and oddly heroic, that of an ordinary man living out an extraordinary existence that many listeners will surely have longed for. This is the first book from this French author to be translated into English. L.B. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2009]
