A tour de force
By Jack Anderson on September 10, 2020

La Vérité sur l'Affaire Harry Quebert is a fantastic book. Written by the Swiss athor Joël Dicker, the book is a complete tour de force.

The 850-page long book is telling the story of Harry Quebert, an American author that once fall in love with Nola, a 15-year old girl that disappeared mysteriously.

GOOD THRILLER
Dicker is using the best methods from the best thrillers. The scenes are short, going straight to the point, many cliffhangers, etc.

ORGANIZED MESS
But the book goes much further. The book keeps going from the present to the past to another present and yet another past. We keep learning more and more about the characters and the sub-stories and everything makes perfect sense, even though we keep going in many directions. Like a growing spiral, the author keeps raising the bar and the tension for 850 pages, I am simply amazed by how such a young author could deliver such structure knowing that this is only his second book.

But it doesn't end there yet...

A BOOK WITHIN THE BOOK WITHIN THE BOOK WITHIN THE BOOK WITHIN THE BOOK
To seal the deal, Dicker puts the final touch that makes the book from great to superb. There is the book within the book. Marcus Goldberg, the protagonist, is writing the book of the affair in front of our eyes. But in doing so, Goldberg tells the story of Dicker too, as they are both writing their second novel.
- SPOILER ALERT -
But it keeps getting more complex, there is then, at the very end of the book, another book. And also a book that was not written by its supposed author. And ultimately yet another book that was written by someone else. In many ways, this is the story of five separate books:
- The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair, by Joël Dicker
- The Harry Quebert Affair, by Marcus Goldberg
- The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair, by Marcus Goldberg
- The Origins of Evil, by Luther Caleb (released as Harry Quebert)
- The Seagulls of Aurora, by Harry Quebert (released as Luther Caleb)

HARD WORK
That, my friends, is some serious hard work. And this tells overall that writing a book is not about drinking alcohol and writing in the middle of the night. It's about hard work. And Joël Dicker did the work.

VERDICT
I give it 8 out of 10. Superb.
