Family influences the way our personalities develop. Grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins and parents are modifier factors for the relationships we will have with other grown-ups. The new book of Joël Dicker centers upon this aspect, presenting childhood in a brutally sincere way. That conglomerate of feelings we could not have explained, observing rules, behavior approved in society, brutality and cruelty of the children of the same age with us, are minutely analyzed. From this point of view, The Book of Baltimore is for me an extraordinary novel. The same style, just like in his previous book, making you sit tight and keep reading ceaselessly until the end of the story.
With feeble unskillfulness, I would say that Joël Dicker is the magnificent writer of these last six years.
