Maybe it's just me, but I could never get into this story. Halfway through the book and I'm clueless as to what's going on! Now I've lost interest.
If you prefer reading serious authors, Modiano is a worthy choice. My guess is this book is not his best. You should be familiar with existential writers like Camus, post-modern like Pynchon and DeLillo; Classics like Proust, Mann, Joyce - to enjoy Modiano.
This is a humorless tale like Oryx and Crake, the Plague, Death in Venice. Set in Paris and surrounding villages a man without family, friends, or a personal life keeps his few memories locked in a virtual and real closet. The telling of the tale is either by happenstance, coincidence, or design - perhaps the readers choice to discern. C'est la vie!
