Ceux qui connaissent (et aiment) l'attachante famille Malaussène ne peuvent que se régaler à la lecture de la fée Carabine. L'humour, encore une fois au rendez-vous, mais surtout les liens d'amitié tissés entre les protagonistes font de ce roman, qu'il est impossible de décrire en quelques mots, une nuit (!) de lecture des plus divertissantes ! Un conseil: si vous ne connaissez pas encore, lisez d'abord "Au bonheur des Ogres".

Format: Paperback
I haven't read a lot of french books in my life, so I won't lose myself in a pointless discussion of how it compares to the writings of any other French autors. This book needs a little understanding of french culture and history, but of course, if you're reading this it's because they mean something to you, don't they? I still wanted to stress that point, because it's the only way to enjoy it thouroughly. Ok, so what's this book about? This is one of several of the Malaussène "family" stories, which is a rather peculiar group of arabic-ascendry immigrants and old people who have been rescued from their loneliness -er, I mean- drug dependence, living in a quartier of Paris. At first they just look like a bunch of crackpots, but that's one of the virtues of writer Daniel Pennac, who never uses a bad-to-good-guys transformation effect but instead takes his characters, talks about their niceties and wrongdoings, and throws them into a nice story so in the end you'll too embrace this odd family. The way of telling the story varies from 3th to 1st person, and if you don't pay attention (or your level of french is not good enough, which was my case) you'll lose the thread of who's talking or what point of view is being taken into account. But that's part of the author's style, which is actually a 'mélange' of styles, ranging from the use of politeness to a bit of rudeness that never insults the reader. And i need to say, it is too darn fun. So go grab a copy of La Fée Carabine and help Benjamin, the innocence himself, inspector Pastor and everybody else solve the case of 'l'égorgeur des vieilles dames'.

There are three reasons why I love this book:
First of all because of the Malaussene family and their friends (being all immigrants and / or old people), already introduced in "Au bonheur des ogres". I adore them, so strange they are! But there are also some new caracters with surprising qualities (i.e. policeman Pastor).
Second point is the plot - with lot of crimes (murder of a policeman, serial killing of old ladies, attempted murder of a journalist). Of course, Malaussene, the professional scapegoat, is again perfect suspect... All the crimes relate to treatment of old people in the society, leading to their isolation, loneliness, exposure to abuse and drug dependence. This is the point why I like it more than the first part: because it touches present days problems, whereas the crimes in "Le bonheur des ogres" had their origins in the WW II.
And - last but not least - the humour! Unbelievable to serve such a crime story in form of a comic novel!
In total: very good entertainment! And very good language training for us non-French readers.
