    Hervé Le Tellier's Eléctrico W is a simple, quiet kind of novel.

    Hervé Le Tellier's Eléctrico W is a simple, quiet kind of novel. It has a minimalist plot, keeping the main focus on its characters and their stories - the stories that make them who they are.

    We experience these nine days through Vincent's narrative. Vincent seems to be working through a lot of confusion regarding his affair with Irene. He manipulates those around him, even those he has yet to meet, in order to reconcile and work through his conflicted feelings. He also doesn't seem to have considered the natural consequences of his interference. Vincent is definitely confused, still trying to figure out what he wants and how he feels.

    The novel seems to just drift along... slowly, not a lot of action, but there's something kind of nice about it. The characters are strongly developed, each one unique. When the plot lulls, which to me felt often, the interest is shifted to exploring each character. I especially liked Aurora's spirited energy; she was by far the most entertaining personality in the book.

    Eléctrico W is a nice character-driven read that shows how our relationships can impact even those we meet briefly. This book is due to be released by Other Press on June 18, 2013.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I did not receive any other compensation for this review. (3.5 stars)
