Reviews - What do customers think about Les Jolies Choses?

Effective use of twins  Feb 6, 2004
Two sisters, both opposites in terms of personality but almost identical twins, find themselves in Paris. One, promiscous, untalented, and ultimately pathetic, committs suicide. The other takes her identity to forge a singing career, discovering things about the dead girl she didn't really know (e.g.her participation in a porno film). Finally, having achieved success, she rejects it for a life with the her sister's boyfriend.
This book holds the interest, using popular language and anglicisms that have entered French despite the efforts of France's Academies. Despentes, reportedly an ex sex worker, knows the milieu, the popular culture, about which she writes. The characters interest: none are very sympathetic,but all seem real.
