Parisian Camille meets Claude when her car tyre bursts in a remote location one rainy evening. He is a ‘routinologist’ who takes her under his wings when he realises she’s lost her spark for life and counsels her through a range of life-changing experiences. Translated from French, this is part novel, part self-help guide. It’s a feel-good, inspiring read that will teach the reader about techniques they can use to lead a happier, more fulfilling life. Perhaps the narrative could have concentrated a bit more on character development and exploring Camille’s life, so her growth could be better appreciated.
