HHhH by Laurent Binet

HHhH - Laurent Binet, Sam Taylor

This novel is really more like a diary about the author's difficulty in writing fiction, and was really not what I expected it to be. I wanted to see and hear the story about the attack on Heydrich, not just hear the author complaining about how hard it is to do just that.
