Original posted at Insatiable Booksluts E galley provided by Other PressRating 4435 women you drive away before they ever have a chance to love you backRecommended if you like Books that take place in Europe flawed main characters reading books that are sometimes uncomfortable but that ring with truthMy lovely friend Tara over at BookSexyReview says that Le Tellier is actually kind of a big deal and he belongs to a movement of writing called Oulipo If that floats your boat I urge you to head on over to her post and check out information about that For me I m much clued into art movements than literary movements so I ll let better minds than mine field that while I talk about the reading experience of this bookIt is a testament to the skill of Herv Le Tellier that this novel can be so compelling while also featuring as its main character a man who had he been born 25 years later would have been a prime candidate for Nice Guys of OKCupid Vincent is so much of a textbook case that I was furiously making notes about his Frustrated Beta Male Syndrome within the first chapter or so Most authors couldn t tackle a character like Vincent and make him anything other than a whiny absurd caricature Le Tellier manages to do the improbable and makes Vincent a character that while you still kind of hate him you feel just enough sympathy for him that you can read the book fluidly and enjoy it without complicationsLe Tellier does this by cheating the perspective a tad in paintings artists often take liberties with true perspective to get of the picture in the fame You end up with impossible tables that couldn t hold up a bowl of fruit in real life but you get to see everything the artist wanted to paint I feel that in writing Vincent Le Tellier employed a similar techniue Vincent is self aware enough that he is able to admit his flaws even while being fully captive to them I don t think most people like Vincent would be that self aware but it is a necessary cheatThe book starts with Vincent our tragically unloved hero fleeing Paris to escape the wiles of the beautiful Irene Irene has dragged his heart through the muck and stomped all over it by rejecting his constant mewling to be loved He sets up house in Lisbon picks up a few hobbies and tries not to cry every time he thinks of her which is all the timeSidenote it is a fact that I once was friends with a man who despite my clearly telling him over and over and over that I was not in the slightest romantically attached to him persisted in trying to win my heart I was approximately twenty one years old at the time and not smart enough to realize that this wasn t a real friendship I let him fly across the country to meet me against my better judgment and I shit you not he was already trying to make out with me within 24 hours There were no mixed signals my signal was a clear no He sobbed like a child when I wouldn t kiss him he had been fully expecting me to succumb to his charms against everything I d ever said So Irene I feel you girlA serial killer is caught in Lisbon and Vincent is assigned by the newspaper to cover the trial along with photographer Antonio Flores Antonio is everything that Vincent wants to be and Vincent kind of hates him for it from the get Antonio is a man who has women approach him who has an achingly romantic lost love story who has gained notoriety for his photographs Vincent on the other hand drags the albatross of the feeling of failure everywhere he goes He claims it is a necklace of uirkiness and underdoggish victory but we can see its true feathersThe two men form a tenuous friendship if you can call a relationship where one person is wildly jealous a friendship but that is largely undone when Vincent learns the identity of the French woman who pines away for Antonio of course it is Irene And she is coming to Lisbon where the men have adjacent hotel rooms Vincent crafts uick and terrible lies to save face he invents a girlfriend Lena Palmer Secretly he hatches a plot to reunite Antonio with his long lost love so that he will abandon Irene and Irene will be as wounded as Vincent and he won t let himself admit available to himThings go awry as do they always Irene does turn out to be a flaming bitch but again Le Tellier masters his craft in such a way that we can see her without being filtered through Vincent s lens of bitterness She does not stand in for all women who turn down Nice Guys she is her own woman and she just happens to be a bitch even though she s totally right about not going out with Vincent because honestly he s kind of a creepo There are other women who wander into the story Aurora who is a bit Manic Pixie Dream Girl for my tastes and Manuela who doesn t put up with any of Vincent s shit much to the reader s delight Also to my delight there is character growth Vincent makes a few choices differently than the old Vincent would have He turns right a few times instead of left They are small choices but they are redemptiveThis is a book that made me think and I think I like that most of all I have little Kindle notes and I so love being able to do Kindle notes y all about literature sprinkled all through the book ones that make me feel like kind of a smarty pants and I enjoy that feeling His writing style is smooth the translation is wonderful The setting is lovely and the book is interesting And did you see that cover art I didn t notice it until after I finished reading because Kindle LOVE Overall I highly recommend it

So let s start with the simplest uestion What is Electrico W It s a rather ancient yellow and white Lisbon funicular train that unfailingly carries its cargo of housewives and office workers every workday morning It forks off continues its way enters into dark tunnels and sputters its way into daylight once againIn short it s a metaphor for loveLove and relationships are subjects that fascinate Herve Le Tellier who focused on it in his prior book Enough About Love Here he explores it once again in all its glorious and not so glorious aspectsVincent Balmer middle aged journalist writer translator and lovesick fool moves to Lisbon after being spurned by Irene a much younger woman who is the object of his obsessions There he partners with the photographer Antonio to report on an infamous serial killer s trialwhile at the same time pursuing his own obsession of writing a book with the provisional title Electrico W Vincent is dense about love unlike the jaded Antoniowho harbors his own love for a girl he calls Duck whom he met as an impressionable teenager and can t get out of his mind Irene may have a thing for Antonio But so does another girl he meets And is another woman about to shock Vincent out of his love addictionYet in addition to the love theme Herve Le Tellier is interested in relaying the stories we tell Vincent in addition to the novel he is working on is translating a number of uirky short shorts by Jaime Montestrela Fiction and fact truth and perception and love obsession and languor all co exist simultaneously leading the reader through his or her own journey Sometimes it seems slightly contrived other times it works beautifully To uote Arthur Miller Attention must be paid It s worth mentioning that Le Tellier is a member of a French literary group Oulipo which is dedicated to finding new patterns and structures that writers can use in any way they enjoy As one story recedes and another begins as stories overlap it becomes evident that Electrico W is really about how we tell ourselves storiesand which stories are true and false 45 stars
