One more book to find
this one to be precise), I found Last Night in Montreal by Emily St. John Mandel. A crime fiction novel, set in Montreal, with a beautiful book cover as well... Yet I didn't buy it. Because the novel was the translated version published by Rivages. I already have issues with translated novels, but having Montreal take the French accent and vocabulary through a translation in French, it is too much for me. So I have decided to set myself to buy it here in the original language. With a title like this one, it speaks to me on so many levels. And it will be the second crime fiction novel set in Montreal I own. My last trip home has been rich in discoveries.

Yes, it's always best to read a book in its original language, if possible.
