My first French read in 2014: “Malavita” by Tonino Benacquista







Synopsis from goodreads_logo_140-b533b2204258ee95a93b7c7882d24080



(known as Badfellas in English)

I don’t think I have ever read such an crazy story before!!
It was very entertaining and full of humor considering the subject matter and I did not suspect the ending to turn out how it did so this was a good surprise.

My only complaint is that the development of Belle as a character took a back seat which is a shame looking back at where her story started.

My favorite part: The plumber!!!!

No wonder it inspired a movie!!

The English translation of this piece is called ‘The Family’ and I would strongly recommend it as it is such a good read.
