Annecy and Thilliez

Visit beautiful Annecy, at any season.

Video and audio below

Franck Thilliez was born in Annecy. He’s a fantastic writer of mystery novels. I’m reading you the first lines of his novel ‘Gataca’, written in 2011. I encourage you to read it. Not only is it well written, but it also will keep you on your toes the whole time.

Gataca, Franck Thilliez

"Prologue

Il n’aurait pas dû faire beau, ce jour-là.

Nulle part, sur cette terre, des gens n’auraient d’avoir le droit de rire, de courir sur la plage ou de s’échanger des cadeaux. Quelque chose ou quelqu’un aurait dû les en empêcher. Non, ils n’avaient pas le droit au bonheur, ni à l’insouciance. Parce qu’ailleurs, dans une pièce réfrigérée, au bout d’infâmes couloir éclairé par des néons, une petite fille avait froid.

Un froid qui ne la quitterait plus. Jamais."
