    One thought on “The Stone Boy”

    1. One of the better psychologically twisty books I have read in a while Takes place in France, when a former school head mistress returns home after being gone for over 10 yrs There are little clues, scattered here and there hinting at the reason for her absence and also flashbacks to her childhood All done extremely well.I think the reason I liked this book so much was because along with the insidious creepiness of this book, it also made one look at a few important questions Does one believe wha [...]

    2. Wow Mostly I have an idea of what will happen at the end of a book, but I have to admit that I had no clue where we were going with this one I don t want to say too much in case I give anything away but if you enjoy psychological thrillers with an unreliable narrator and lots of twists and turns then get this one.The Story When the elderly Madame Preau returns to her own house after several years spent in a convalescent home, she immediately notices that the neighbourhood has changed A new famil [...]

    3. A woman with a lifetime of eccentric behavior, blurring reality and fantasy, displays all the symptoms of delusional paranoia in later adulthood After 10 years of psychiatric hospitalization, she returns to her childhood home and stops taking her medication Soon she is setting two hundred mouse traps to deal with nighttime noises only she can hear, killing stray cats and laundering their pelts to prevent being spied on by microchips they carry and accusing the neighbors of abusing a child they a [...]

    4. The French novel The Stone Boy is a curiously strange tale of psychological suspense The premise involves an elderly woman, Madame Pr au who, after a long period of convalescence comes home to a changed neighborhood She is pretty much alone except for a housekeeper and a son who visits her periodically and seems to be distant and untrusting Her closest neighbor is a family with apparently three children One of the children, an older boy, is always seen separately from the others and, to Madame P [...]

    5. Initially I was completely underwhelmed by this story as told from the viewpoint of Elsa Preau, a miserable woman that only seem to see the misery in life, and the type of person I try to avoid in real life As a retired headmistress Elsa leads the quiet life of a typical old lady, spending her days spying on the neighbours through her curtains, complaining in elaborately written letters to council men about noise and dust pollution while taking time to constantly accuse her son of neglecting her [...]

    6. The heroine of this book is Elsa Preau, a retired headmistress living alone in her former family home to which she has recently returned after several years in a convalescent home Visited infrequently by her doctor son, Martin, Elsa has little to keep her occupied apart from visits to her physiotherapist and her psychologist Missing contact with her grandson, Bastien, and the children she used to teach, Elsa becomes obsessed with watching the children of her nearest neighbour But what she sees r [...]

    7. This psychological thriller has enough twists and turns to appeal to many mystery thriller aficionado However to say it is a psychological thriller alone would be incorrect because it offers so much The stigma of Mental illness, the elderly and the bond between mother and child are explored closely.It s a cracker of a story because just when you think you know the direction the author is taking, you are led off on another journey entirely.It is a little slow to get going but I felt that was due [...]

    8. One of the best thrillers I ve read the twists kept on coming and the ending actually felt satisfying I can see why this was a bestseller in France.

    9. Is Madame Preau crazy, senile, or over medicated and hallucinating, a psychic or psychotic Or is she telling the truth You won t know till the end of this Psychological thriller that kept me guessing There is one quote that summed up this mystery for me The touch of madness was irresistible Elsa Preau was an eccentric, brilliant woman who had been the Head Mistress at a French elementary school She is very sensitive to current affairs and injustices in the world writing letters to agencies about [...]

    10. The Stone Boy is an interesting novel Sophie Loubriere writes subtly and sparsely This is a French bestseller, so it s like watching a French movie with understated action and nuance.Madame Preau is the curmudgeonly protagonist who is tenacious in her thoughts and opinion One of my favorite parts of the novel is when Madame Preau writes letters to provide her opinions and helpful tips to government officials Her letters are hilarious, in a truly French and understated way Madame is persnickety a [...]

    11. Upon leaving a cinema theatre, judging a film can be pretty immediate and not at all a private experience Last night I spent the night with a bunch of gregarious Navy Seals Lone Survivor and as soon as the film ended you felt spent A terrific movie, the audience let out a collective sigh and everyone had an opinion Reading is the polar opposite The journey is yours and yours alone There s no one you can say, did you read that Sure you can talk to people if they ve read the same book but as you p [...]

    12. You may wonder, how interesting is a story about an old lady that thinks she sees a small boy outside her window Let me put it this way my jaw is still on the floor Even after finishing THE STONE BOY, I have no idea how Sophie Loubi re pulled it off every page was interesting every page held my attention.Loubi re s main character Elsa Pr au held a certain je ne sais quoi In other words, She had a talent as a storyteller that gave credibility and gravitas to her tales In those descriptions from t [...]

    13. Madame Preau has returned home after several years in a convalescent home Once a Headmistress, the elderly woman now spends her time writing letters to politicians and the newspapers and spying on her neighbours There are maybe three kids next door two of whom seem fine but the third seems to be neglected and perhaps abused Madame Preau reports her fears to the authorities but, when they check, they can find no proof of this third child And there is plenty of reason to doubt Madame Preau, even h [...]

    14. The Stone Boy is a strange and fascinating novel about mental illness and parent child relations that leaves the reader with shifting perceptions about truth.I thought I knew what it was about and updated my opinions several times with new information, but truly, I never had a clear perception and had to work through each new situation The book is difficult to review because to appreciate it fully, it has to develop for each reader I want people to read this book, but I also want them to be able [...]

    15. Warning Adult content I finished The Stone Boy for the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program This batch highlighted Hatchett authors who are affected by the Hatchett battle So, I m reviewing this book to support the authors of Hatchett.The Stone Boy is a bestselling French book newly translated into English The protagonist of the psychological thriller is Madame Preau Madame Preau returns to her house after a stint in a convalescent home and discovers a little boy in the neighbor s backyard, all [...]

    16. What a disappointment this book is I like reading thrillers but this book was boring and oh so very disapppointing I figured out what was happening very early on in the book and there was nothing very thrilling at all Basically it s about an old woman who 10 years previously had killed her grandson and then in the present day watched her neighbours and noticed a boy being abused Because of her background everyone thought she was senile which she was and which came out in her carrying around a ha [...]

    17. As with their movies, in general, I find that the French, at least those that are translated, are very deft with psychological twisters In many of the crime novels I ve read by French authors, there is an underlying element that enhances the writing and adds of a purpose to the proceedings than just whodunnit This novel which grabbed me and didn t let go also incorporated two wonderful character studies, and a third which isn t immediately obvious Satisfying.

    18. To me, a good fiction story is one where you can t predict the story halfway throughwell, this book was fantastic My predictions kept falling through until the very end It s either that or I must read fiction work to understand the pattern.

    19. Written by a French author translated to English Really enjoyed this story that had a few twists along the way Hope there s of her work available in English.

    20. Wow I was torn between 3 and 4 stars on this one This is my second book that I have read recently that has been translated from French to English And in reading both of them, I have been left a little stranded Maybe culturally I have just not been exposed enough to France to fully comprehend To summarize the plot of the book is about an older woman, recently institutionalized, who returns to her home and witnesses a sad little boy in her neighbor s yard, who no one else seems to acknowledge exis [...]

    21. Wow Just wow I actually read the entire book in one day because I couldn t put it down Every time you think you know where the book is going, it throws you another curveball What an intense and amazing psychological thriller I highly recommend

    22. 1.5 stars This bestselling French phenomenon is proof that the French enjoy much the same drivel as the American reading public.

    23. A very creepy psychological thriller that I find French authors do so well I m a huge fan of Pierre Lemaitre so decided to try another highly rated author and it did not disappoint The structure of the book is interesting with chapters of only 3 or so pages, but the brevity is its strength as you are left to puzzle out the truth I couldn t put it down

    24. The story of an elderly woman who is colorfully odd, but also may be destructively psychotic Big accent on may be Therein lies the captivating element and beauty of French author Sophie Loubi re s tale The Stone Boy is a best seller in France In my experience French wife , I d say the English translation is bang on in capturing the tone of the French obsession with privacy, and the quirky individualism behind the staid and proper French persona.Elsa Pr au is a retired school teacher living alone [...]

    25. Review based on ARC.Yes.I started this book with high hopes for the French thriller that it claimed to be So, around page 60, I was disappointed I took time away from reading to explain to my sister what the book was about, what was happening, and what was bound to happen.And I love that I was all wrong And all right And kind of nowhere in between.I love that Sophie Loubiere was so deep in her plunge into the psyche of a declining intelligent woman With a questionable past and an even questiona [...]

    26. Great novel I have to confess I picked this book up once before and started reading it but over the course of a week or so I d barely got through the first 30 pages So I gave up and came back to it months later, only this time I plunged right in and downed the first 25 30 pages in one sitting This helped the chapters are short, only a few pages, and the first several chapters skims through an overview of the main character s life until we get to the present day, when things start to come togethe [...]

    27. I received this book from the Hachette Book Group through Library Things Early Reviewers I do not normally read mysteries or psychological thrillers but this book intrigued me by the following synopsis Just because no one else sees him Doesn t mean he isn t real.Is the boy real, or merely a hallucination Can Madame Preau be trusted, or has she become mentally unstable following a traumatic event that cut her off from her own beloved grandson Sophie Loubiere does a wonderful job keeping you vacil [...]

    28. When a psychologically damaged old retired school teacher returns home after an extended mysterious stay at a convalescent home, she finds she has new neighbors When their children play in their yard, she begins seeing a pale grey boy she calls the stone boy who seems part of the family Everyone denies he exists, but is she just crazy or is she really seeing him Loubi re details the crazy things the old woman does, like setting numerous mousetraps on her second floor and killing cats because the [...]

    29. Madame Pr au returns to her own house outside Paris after several years spent in a nursing home As I read the story, she appeared to me to be a bitter, old woman who seems to like tormenting her son As the reader continues the story, we are left wondering what happened to Madame Preau grandson and what was her involvement Then Madame Preau begins noticing a small, malnourished boy with the neighbor s children No one believes her and it seems as though it is just the ramblings of a cranky, senile [...]

    30. I received a review copy of this book.The elderly Madame Preau is definitely a bit off her rocker, which causes her concerns about a neighbor child to be indulged and then ignored No one can even verify the existence of the child But Madame persists, keeping a journal record and attempting a photograph However, her connection with reality seems to grow and tenuous, and she does have a history which throws her credibility further into doubt It is clear how exasperating she must be for her son M [...]
