This is my favourite book so far in this series.
I loved Marcel Guillaume both together and separately. The banter between the two, especially early when they first met was fabulous. I enjoyed that Guillaume never once complained about his sentence. He owned what he did and took the punishment. I also liked that Marcel never once talked down to him, he was treated as an equal from the very start. The friendship that blossomed was entertaining to read.
Marcel's illness was also done well. I don't know a lot about it, but it felt well handled to me. The fact that people got up in his life he accepted and while it frustrated me and him at times, he handled it with class.
the secondary characters were all great, I especially liked Dominic and was very happy for him when he found someone that could actually see him.
