    " - Didn't see you how much I love you ? - I did, but it wasn't my problem ". The novel develops a story that relies on the father-son relationship, but not that of blood, but that of master-disciple, much deeper. With notes that reminded me of Freud, the story between two brilliant magicians unfolds starting from two points specific to the œdipal complex : hatred of the father, and love of the mother, in case of adolescents. Here, for not to folow on this classic line, Nothomb adds an extra note " - Didn't see you how much I love you ? - I did, but it wasn't my problem ".

With notes that reminded me of Freud, the story between two brilliant magicians unfolds starting from two points specific to the œdipal complex : hatred of the father, and love of the mother, in case of adolescents. Here, for not to folow on this classic line, Nothomb adds an extra note : that of choice. Joe chooses a certain path in life, for that he feels overwhelmed by the gesture of being chosen as one's son. I noticed an unpredictable nature of the evolution of the relationship between the two men. If almost the whole thread of the narrative leads you to the cliché of a relationship that can be explained by psychoanalysis, towards the end the route derails strongly towards an area where no explanation is valid. More surprising than son's behavior is that of the father, who also becomes - inevitably- obssesed with the idea of choice. It is also worth mentioning the background on which the connection between the two is built : Burning Man Festival - a real celebration for fire dancers. It is a pity that the author concludes, here, coherent and stylistically well- formulated episodes - with statements related to a free flow of associations , - a technique that does not fit at all with the narrative thread of the book . Thus, according to the whole philosophy of dance, we move on to linguistic considerations : " Fire dancer" - sounds better than " danseur de feu" - ,poor French with analytical needs..."

As the title reminds us, it’s a story about Oedipal complex but this time, it is about not the birth mother or the birth father that matter, but the chosen mother and the chosen father. Yet it doesn’t stop there, Nothomb makes a story in which the father is in need of being killed by his son, so that he can prove himself that he is the father! He surrenders his wife, and his life just to get the acceptance from his adopted son, that he indeed has chosen him as the father I enjoyed this one a lot.

    I don't love it, but I don't hate it. I'm glad I read another Amélie Nothomb: I love her writing style. But, here, I thought it lacked something to be as good as usual. There were some interesting reflections, but not as good as some of her other books. To be honest, Tuer le père or, in English, Kill the Father, suffers because I loved other books by the author more than this one. I couldn't get attached to the characters, and couldn't get interested in the plot. The topic was unusual, and that I don't love it, but I don't hate it.

I still learnt some things, like I didn't know anything about Burning Man! The central reflection about Oedipus complex was interesting: here (view spoiler)[the son doesn't try to kill the father; the father tries to keep his son. (hide spoiler)] Madness blends into the matter and it's quite insettling. I wasn't fond of the ending. A thing I loved: the fact that the author invents a character with her name and puts her into the book! I love this kind of tropes! So, not the best!

    This book was insane - literally insane. Based on the Freudian idea of every son's wish to kill his father, this is a story about the relationship of a 15 year old boy with his surrogate father. To say any more would probably be giving away too much, but is suffices to say that the relationship is far from a typical one. (view spoiler)[I didn't like Joe from the beginning and felt sorry for Norman. It had every indication of a bad ending so I was not surprised when things turned towards the bad, This book was insane - literally insane.

I've always been a fan of Amélie Nothomb and this was an addictive read - I found the character study highly compelling and didn't want to put this down. As always, Nothomb has a strong shift in narrative in the final chapters and it dawned on me that the title is a beautiful play on words between the homophones "Tuer le père" and "tu es le père", examining both the Oedipus complex, as well as the choice to raise and love someone unconditionally and the abandonment felt by a rejected father-figu I've always been a fan of Amélie Nothomb and this was an addictive read - I found the character study highly compelling and didn't want to put this down.

    All the characters feel flat, specially the female one. She is only there as a love interest and plot device. It doesn't express well what it is trying to convey, and frankly, it feels quite rape-apologetic (related to the plot).

    I enjoyed this novella with a story inspired by the story of Oedipus. As always, Nothomb writes beautifully.

    I missed Amelie‘s unforgettable prose, her adorable ironies and playfulness. I MISSED Amelie Nothomb, a narrator whom one finds in most books by the author of the same name and I cherish as a dear friend. On the one hand, this book deserves four stars because I love the author too much to call anything by her commonplace. On the other, it deserves three stars because the author forgot herself when writing this. The book in itself is entertaining and intriguing.

If I had picked this up without being a Nothomb fan I probably would never have read anything by her ever again. But it isn‘t a waste of time. In summary: Fun but not too fun. Readable but not a must read. Sad to discover that Amelie has had shortcomings in her literary career.

    What I liked were the descriptions of Reno. That's literally it. If I hadn't known that there would be some kind of pay-off or a plot twist in the end, I would have stopped in the middle of it. The story seemed predictable and it felt like it wasn't going anywhere. So when the inevitable twist came I was pretty much done with all the characters and could not enjoy it. Or maybe I just didn't get it. :(

    A very short yet touching story that follows the unexpected relationship between a gifted but neglected kid and a gifted but unsuspecting teacher. Despite being a teacher-student deal at first, it soon becomes something else, something more significant -- at least in the eyes of the teacher. However, he wasn't in on everything. His feelings get in the way of his sensibility when the truth is finally unearthed, rendering him blind, stubborn and mad with unrequited love.

    I really enjoyed this one. Her best in a few years actually. Still too short for the cost, but hey, that's the price to pay if you want one book a year...

    It's not the best of her work, but As always, she manages to deconstruct and construct life in one single book, Elle es superbe

    What I hate the most - when the book leaves you indifferent, without any feelings after reading the last page.

    The problem of fathers and sons is still open to discussion. Nothomb has tried to step up into this field and her attempt is successful!!! Loved it!

    This is one of those books that make you think that the author lost the thread in the first half and end up rushing it.
