Le Livre des Baltimore

Le Livre des Baltimore

Jusqu’au jour du Drame, il y avait deux familles Goldman. Les Goldman-de-Baltimore et les Goldman-de-Montclair.

Les Goldman-de-Montclair, dont est issu Marcus Goldman, l’auteur de La Vérité sur l’Affaire Harry Quebert, sont une famille de la classe moyenne, habitant une petite maison à Montclair, dans le New Jersey. Les Goldman-de-Baltimore sont une famille prospère à qui tout sourit, vivant dans une luxueuse maison d’une banlieue riche de Baltimore, à qui Marcus vouait une admiration sans borne.

Huit ans après le Drame, c’est l’histoire de sa famille que Marcus Goldman décide cette fois de raconter, lorsqu’en février 2012, il quitte l’hiver new-yorkais pour la chaleur tropicale de Boca Raton, en Floride, où il vient s’atteler à son prochain roman.

Au gré des souvenirs de sa jeunesse, Marcus revient sur la vie et le destin des Goldman-de-Baltimore et la fascination qu’il éprouva jadis pour cette famille de l’Amérique huppée, entre les vacances à Miami, la maison de vacances dans les Hamptons et les frasques dans les écoles privées. Mais les années passent et le vernis des Baltimore s’effrite à mesure que le Drame se profile. Jusqu’au jour où tout bascule. Et cette question qui hante Marcus depuis : qu’est-il vraiment arrivé aux Goldman-de-Baltimore ?

    5 out of 5 stars! ⭐️ OUR APRIL 2018 BOOK CLUB READ: Joël Dicker did it again. No one writes as he does... I cried silent tears at the end of the book. I am so shocked in all the good ways though!...

  • Anna Karen

    This book is terribly bad, trust me. I had to read it (more like I skipped over) until the end just to find out what the (ad nauseum) "TRAGEDY" would be. It´s so full of boring and stupid repetitions...

    'In books, people who are no longer with us can meet again, and embrace'This is a long (over-long, really) book about family, brotherhood, love, lies, loyalty, rivalry and secrets: as seems to have be...

  • Mauricio Gomez Ormeo

    This novel lives completely on the shadow of “The truth of the Harry Quebert affair”. Plain storyline where the only action is found on the last 50 pages. ...

  • Carmen

    I am still under the spell of the Goldman cousins, so it is going to be hard to rate this book. I don't know if it is great or just average, I'm not sure if I have fallen in all the writer's traps or ...

  • i.

    This is the third book by the French author and the second I've read. I was a bit reluctant to read it since I hadn't liked The Truth about the Harry Quebert Affair so much, despite its international ...

  • Rita Costa (Lusitania Geek)

    I love this books, shame it didn't come up first this one, as the time that occurred was way before Marcus entered in the "picture´" of Harry Quebert Case. which by the way I loved it that novel too....
