Reviews & Summaries
The Wall Street Journal dubs this "The European 'Gone Girl'" which should have warned me to stay away since I was frustrated by a complete lack of empathy for the main characters of the latter. But I ended up liking this book better, partly because it was both lighter in action (it takes place over the course of one pretentious dinner in an expensive restaurant) and skewering in plot. As you blithely laugh along with Paul while he rolls his eyes at the pinky-pointing maitre d' and the pretentions of his hollow brother, you suddenly realize you're complicit in the much more insidious flaws of his character and his role in a dark secret which is slowly revealed over the course of the meal. You may not like these people, but you know people sort of like them. And you sure hope they're not you.
