This is a short book you can read in a couple of hours.
It's pleasant to see how Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt managed to build such a vertiginous story based on a simple sophism: solipsism.

But in a way all this is logical and obvious, as this book exists only because I wanted so ;-) ( )

Inventaire brillant des infirmits de l'esprit. Rarement on a dploy aussi savamment les sortilges tout intellectuels de la raison pour en contester les pouvoirs.
