I have listened to other books read by Maarleveld and enjoyed them. This one bothered me. The French accent was a French (France) accent - not at all a Québecois accent. Some place names were mispronounced - this got in the way of my enjoyment of the book. And a few details in the story (e.g. there were no streetcars or trams in Montreal after about 1959 - but one appears in the book at a later date) irked. This is an important story to tell so on the whole I liked the book, though I found the ending too pat.
