B. Carvalho a écrit Neuf Nuits avant les trois que j'ai énormément aimés : Mongolie, Ta mère et Le Soleil se couche à Sao Paulo. Lisant celui-ci, j'ai eu l'impression de me trouver devant une sorte de double moins bien réussi de Mongolie. Au-delà de la différence univers de l'Amazonie / univers de la Mongolie, on retrouve le même type de construction mêlant réel et fiction, document retrouvé et narrations multiples. On retrouve aussi les thèmes de la folie, de l'homosexualité et de la culpabilité. S'y ajoute l'influence de Conrad et particulièrement de Lord Jim (mais aussi Au coeur des Ténèbres), influence qui existait peut-être dans les autres romans mais qui ne m'était pas apparue.
Bref, si vous ne connaissez pas cet auteur, laissez ce roman et plongez-vous directement dans ses trois autres romans nommés ci-dessus. Et si comme moi, vous les avez déjà lus, vous serez peut-être déçu comme je l'ai été ou intéressé malgré tout car l'ambiance et la construction du roman sont tout de même remarquables. ( )
