Summary Chanson douce Chanson douce Free download ✓ 109 When Myriam a French Moroccan lawyer decides to return to work after having children she and her husband look for the perfect nanny for their two young children They never drea. Where do these stories come from They emanate from Louise in a continual flood without her even thinking about it without her making the slightest effort of memory or imagination But in what black lake in what deep forest has she found these cruel tales where the heroes die at the end after first saving the world I saw The Perfect Nanny on the Millions Most Anticipated list It s a short book and my library had it available to read immediately so I thought why not I had very few expectations going into it but this uiet ugly little book crept right under my skinIt opens with a horrendous and engaging first chapter two young children have been murdered The story then moves back in time to the before back to when Myriam decides to return to her career and hire a nanny to look after her two kids Louise walks into the lives of Myriam and her husband Paul and completely exceeds their expectations of what a nanny should be She cooks she cleans she plays she teaches she pretends she hosts parties and she accompanies them on vacationSoon Louise is deeply embedded in every aspect of their lives and it is hard to imagine being without her But as they grow closely entwined than ever Louise often becomes a burden Too perfect Too intense Strange things start happening and Myriam begins to wonder if there is a darker side to this perfect nanny And that was when she heard it Most people live their whole lives without ever hearing a scream like that It is the kind of scream heard during war in the trenches in other worlds on other continents It is not a scream from here It s a strange book mostly concerned with daily life and the interactions between the main few characters But there is something extremely disuieting about it Each scene is expertly told with tension simmering just under the surface and it is no less effective for having given up the ending in the first chapter I haven t read the original in french but the translation seems fantasticI know many readers will be left feeling dissatisfied by the ending and how it feels like we haven t been given enough reasons to justify the horrors of the book but I actually found this even haunting It s the kind of book that beautifully tells a tragic story but it narrates the events rather than considering the emotions that led to them This leaves us to draw our own conclusions and I have to say my mind has been spinning around ever since I finished the last pageBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube

Summary Chanson douce Chanson douce Free download ✓ 109 Med they would find Louise a uiet polite devoted woman who sings to the children cleans the family's chic apartment in Paris's upscale tenth arrondissement stays late without c. She drinks and the discomfort of living the shyness of breathing all this anguish dissolves in the liuid sips This book is uite creepy and slightly gross That wasn t what bothered me though Instead it was just that it was such a boring book that I kept wondering how it became a national bestsellerMyriam is a Moroccan French mother who has left her career of being a lawyer because of the work her two children have put her on Her husband Paul is working day and night trying to get the financial help they need to pay all these debts they own and to settle in their small apartment to continue being a happy family The thing is they aren t a happy family which is where the perfect nanny comes in When Myriam and Paul meet Louise they love her instantly They love her compassion love and adoration for their children They love the way she keeps things tidy and organized how she reads stories to their children how she cooks how she cleans how she manages to make everything seem perfect perhaps too perfect But that s where Myriam sees something this nanny seems to be too perfect When Louise becomes close to Adam and Mila the two children of Paul and Myriam she can t help but feel love and adoration for them but also jealousy and envy when they re close to someone else when they don t listen to her but listen to others when they don t want to be near her but want to be with their parents Little did these two law workers ever think their perfect nanny would be than just a nanny Triggercontent warnings for child abuse and murder The book literally starts off with a dead baby s body There is also some child abuse of course since we know the nanny is the killer and mentions of threats Louise does not respond or hardly and the nannies understand this silence They all have shameful secrets they hide awful memories of bent knees humiliations lies Memories of barely audible voices on the other end of the line of conversations cut off of people who die and are never seen again of money needed day after day for a sick child who no longer recognizes you and who has forgotten the sound of your voice Some of them Louise knows have stolen just little thing almost nothing at all like a tax levied on the happiness of others Some conceal their real names Inspired by the real life story of the murder of the Krim siblings we start off the book with a gory scene a broken body of a baby is put inside a zipping bag as the mother is in a state of shock as investigators are photographing the scene as the murderer is being treated as the little girl is taken to the hospital and convulsing out of state of panic shock anger and pain We instantly know who did it and how but the uestion remains WHY The ending only makes everything worse Not only is is one of the worst endings but it made everything much mysterious and suspicious You can t help but think there was involved maybe even someone else There were so many unneeded obstacles in this short little novel that all you want to do is skip to the ending because everything else is so unnecessaryAlthough I m not sure if the translation of this is very accurate from French to English thank you Sam Taylor I appreciate how the author started this which is why it s so gripping but she sure knows how to make this very manipulative Louise and the author both manage to grip you into this and get your attention so you read every little page because you want to find out everything that s happened and WHYThe book is utterly creepy in the beginning that it has you holding on to every page because of what it s about to throw at you but there isn t anything We follow the life of all these characters Louise St phanie Paul Myriam and even some of Mila but only in the beginning Truthfully we only follow Louise and her past We learn about her past actions who she was before her previous love life and get some chapters about her daughter We see how she has struggled but it all made me dislike her I wanted to understand her but I couldn t get it through my head She throws her life at us showing why we need to feel bad for her But as much as I wanted to I couldn t sympathize with her Louise is a soldier She keeps going come what may like a mule like a dog with its legs broken by cruel children No characters made me feel compassion for them except one Mila Mila was a small child but she was old enough to know wrong vs right good vs evil I couldn t blame her for her poor child decisions but then I couldn t understand how her mother Myriam couldn t see it in her in her eyes the eyes who can t fool her because she is her daughter and a daughter and a mother have one of the most promising and touching relationships Well that is if they get along and such Going into this I thought there was gonna be about the relationship between Myriam and her children but this 200 page book was obviously not gonna be that given the fact that it is so small and easily foldable that the obvious statement of the mysterious nanny is there so we know it s all about her As I mentioned Mila I wish she would have done something about the situation she was in I couldn t help but wonder and think if she was gonna do anything tell her mother at least about the experiences she had to go through because of Louise How did she not trust her mother Why did she stay silent How could she not be able to say anything The author just fools you having yourself uestion everything happening but never actually finding and figuring out its answer Children are just like adults There s nothing to understand One thing I couldn t understand was the connection between the very beginning and the very ending It was so confusing to me as to WHY the author said Adam is dead Mila will be too soon I guess what I m trying to say is HOW this came to be We start off with the murder scene and then just suddenly jump to Myriam apparently buying pastries for her children and nanny picking out their favorites and the chapter ends with that one sentence as if Myriam the mother knew this was going to happen It s as if the author wants to you suspect the mother and think she killed them and she killed Louise stabbing the knife in her throat and slitting her wrists not knowing death but introducing it You know I really just wish the author made this comprehensible easier to understand but it was honestly a whole messThis book is of a character driven book than a plot moving one and I wouldn t even say it s thrilling or suspenseful since we already know what the fuck happened anyways and all we want to know is the reason for it but instead we end up reading about the love life Louise had how she doesn t know if her daughter is alive or dead how she worked at a Children s Day Care and how she ended up becoming the perfect nanny for Adam and Mila It s a slow moving one with the author throwing one twist after another but they aren t twists you don t see coming As a reader who doesn t read thrillers often I wouldn t call these twists suspenseful You know they re coming you see them coming and they aren t twists that actually keep you anticipating to see what s after All in all it isn t as exhilarating as it soundsThe writing is surprisingly mellow easy to follow simple and slow paced it s as if watching a very slow and boring movie or tv show where everything happens right at the beginning only to have it end with a way you never thought of as you realize you wasted your time It s not the best and many of the sentences don t seem to make sense but it s intriguing enough I can t promise I ll ever read another Le la Slimani book if and whenever she publishes it but it really depends like always Also I can t believe this has actually been called the French Gone Girl when they are completely different in every possible way actuallyAlso a couple of things to know about the real life story of the Krim siblings Marina Krim speaking at Ortega s sentencing Kevin Krim speaking at
