Chanson douceIlable and checked each one to see if the last section was the samewhen I found out they were and the story truly did end at the point it did I was actually uite upset as I honestly felt like I d just been played It was akin to me waiting all season to finally watch that finale episode of my favorite TV show where everything will finally be revealed after building up the suspense for months with my eyes glued to the TV set in eager anticipation only to find out the finale was pre empted last minute with no re scheduled airing date planned this is actually something that happened to be me before way back in the day I guess in a way the ending ruined the book for me as I m the type of person who doesn t like to be left hanging when I m reading a book or watching a TV series or a movie I always need to have some type of closure some indication that the story arc has endedeven if the intention is to continue with the story as a series with the same characters at a later point this particular story needs to end first I didn t get that with this book and unfortunately it ended up leaving a bitter taste in my mouth as a result Aside from the issues with the ending this was an otherwise solid read that I actually do recommend for its compelling story and riveting characters The author is obviously a very talented writer and can craft a truly captivating story I would probably still read other books by this author but of course while crossing my fingers hoping that those endings don t turn out like this one did Received ARC from Penguin Group via Edelweiss 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 oung 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 no less effective for having given up the ending in the first 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 the ending and how it feels 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 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 her career of being a lawyer because of the work her two children have put her on Her husband Paul 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 ou and who has forgotten the sound of our 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. 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 ,

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 ou 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 ou 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 Metsas Algavad Hled you into this and getour attention so Safe With You First And Last 1 you read every little page becauseou want to find out everything that s happened and WHYThe book is utterly creepy in the beginning that it has Battle For Pakistan you holding on to every page because of what it s about to throw atou 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 The Sex Diaries you havingourself 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 Chocolate Rau Cu Pua War Games The Chocolate Chronicles 3 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 twistsou 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 Quality Function Deployment C you see them coming and they aren t twists that actually keepou 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 Quality Financial Reporting you never thought of asou realize Hands On Geospatial Analysis With R And Qgis you wastedour 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 Ortega s sentencing 4 slower building but gripping stars to The Perfect Nanny The Nanny opened with the what There was a horrific scene to in this family s home For the entire scene to behold in this family s home For the entire I was on the edge of my seat wondering the why with tons of ambiguity and build up at a slower moving pace Louise seems to be epitome of the perfect nanny but people aren t always who and what they appear to be The side messages on class privilege and child rearing in France were interesting This had all the makings of a five star read Until the ending It was a little too loose and open I was really looking forward to putting my finger on the why for some closure The Perfect Nanny is a short and uick read Overall I found it gripping and engaging and well worthy of four stars thanks to my traveling of four stars Thanks to my Traveling for another great discussion Please visit Norma and Brenda s blog for the Traveling Sisters review ou to Leila Slimani Penguin Books and Edelweiss for the complimentary copy Of course there is no such thing as a perfect nanny And even though the ending of the book is given away on the very first page I m going to hide it in a spoiler view spoiler The opening page is the police scene the Nanny has stabbed both children to death hide spoiler. Omplaint and hosts enviable kiddie parties But as the couple and the nanny become dependent on one another jealousy resentment and suspicions mount shattering the idyllic table. .
FIVE STARSI still have chills days after finishing THE PERFECT NANNY I ve skipped over this novel many times thinking it would be the old hand that rocks the cradle plot I could not have been wrong This unusual book got under my skin in the uietest creepiest way possible and it deserves nothing less than 5 stars The story opens with a brief graphic scene of violence depicting the death of two oung children at the hands of their nanny I almost put down the book I was afraid it would continue But no that is only the first two pages An unsettling and disturbing framework is set and the reader now views the rest of the story from the beginning all the while knowing how this is going to end Since we know WHO the driving force of this tense character profile is WHY As in real life we see glimpses of madness in a person but rarely is there a definable answer as to why someone would commit such a heinous act Instead it is a combination of inexplicable factors in a disturbed mind that may uietly lead to violence The terrifying part to me is how the loving parents unknowingly invited a madwoman into their home She appeared to them to be an angel an actual Mary Poppins Until the unraveling began And then it was too late She has the keys to their apartment she knows everything she has embedded herself so deeply in their lives that it now seems impossible to remove her The writing is smooth Corto Toujours Un Peu Plus Loin Corto Maltese 4 yet spare Leila Slimani has won many writing awards in her home country of France and it is easy to see why I love this style of writing with one omniscient narrator telling the story in a simple almost hypnotic manner The short book is absolutely riveting and compulsively readable This is for readers that loved Unraveling Oliver or We Need to Talk About Kevin However this novel feels completely fresh and is a much faster read than either of these Truly one of my new favorites The author says she wanted to write about nannies You know the uneasy ambiguity how they re an intimate part ofour family but they re an employee how they re poor mostly black mostly immigrant and they live in the middle of wealth during working hours returning each day to the other side of the tracks how they re everything and they have Cassells Colloquial Italian yo What the literal hell I had to read a nanny book for a challenge and thought Oh the library has this book This sounds good I m binge reading it because it reeled me in I m all like HOLY EVIL GINGERBREAD MEN THIS IS GOOD Then I come to the end I turn the page and there were the acknowledgements I m like what the hell I sat here all excited andou gonna end like that I m stumped I was about to toss my tablet but no not the tablet Then I thought 1 ass Star I m giving Bedmning I Och Av Skolan you Then fine 3 stars becauseou had me going the whole way through the book You rat bastard Happy Reading Mel BLOG This is one of this intensely interior novels that are claustrophobic and incredibly engaging and disturbing I was very aware that I was reading a translation and I have no doubt that in French this novel is a show stopper The translation is good but clunky at times I suppose that is the nature of most translation As a portrait of a nanny who ends up murdering her charges not a spoiler this novel does a good job of creating ambiguity and never really showing a clear cut why of the crime We also see little of the aftermath Instead ou read the entire novel knowing something terrible is coming In that Slimani has us in her thrall At times the prose is overly indulgent and overwritten Like we get it Chill But still This is a great novel Lots to admire here DNF 35% I tried my best to get into this novel but couldn tThe novel opens with a beautiful written crime scene It S Shocking But Written s shocking but written Then it started downhill for me I couldn t feel anything for Myriam Paul Louise Pascale or Milla or Adam It felt dry perhaps due to it being a translated work that could maybe is brilliant in French but didn t read well in English 35 stars For me this book was originally a solid 4 stars that is up until the ending which I ll get back to later The opening scene was uite explosive and emotional hooking me from the start in wanting to find out exactly what happened why things turned out the way they did how such a horrific tragedy occurred We are taken back in time to the very beginning where we are introduced to the Masse family parents Myriam and Paul who have two adorable kids Toddler Mila And Baby Adam Mila and baby Adam seemingly ordinary family who decides to hire a nanny due to Myriam resuming her career as a lawyer Enter Louise a oung woman with a world of experience taking care of kids not only are the kids charmed by her from the start she also proves to be efficient in everything she does whether cooking or cleaning or coming up with activities for the kids Myriam and Paul are thrilled that they have found the perfect nanny to take care of their kids allowing them to immerse themselves into their careers without worryas long as Louise is there everything will be fine that is the mantra that Paul and Myriam live by as they become increasingly dependent on Louise day to dayuntil one day when mantra that Paul and Myriam live by as they become increasingly dependent on Louise day to dayuntil one day when realize everything ISN T fine after all This was a slow burn character driven story that doesn t really follow the traditional mysterysuspensethriller format in that we already find out what happened and who did it within the first few pages so the big uestion explored throughout the rest of the narrative was to understand the why and how why did the nanny do what she did and how did things get to this point Originally written and released in France 2 ears ago this book was recently translated into English for the US market while some of the sentences did come off a little bit oddly structured I would say that overall the writing was uite good The author did a great job building up Louise s character revealing her past in bits interspersed with parts of the investigation As Louise s relationship with the family slowly unraveled the sense of creepiness and tension slowly heightened as well reaching near breaking point I was absolutely on the edge of my seat and felt like I couldn t turn the pages fast enough So I guess it shouldn t be a surprise then that I was disappointed with the way this book ended which was very abruptly with many uestions still unanswered plot points not et resolved many loops not et closed My first thought when I got to what ended up being the last page was that perhaps something happened to my copy of the ARC when I downloaded and perhaps some pages went missing so I immediately went back and re downloaded the book in all formats ava. 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 oung children They never drea. ,
