Vacationing at a luxurious Tuscan island resort, Nicolas Duhamel is hopeful that the ghosts of his past have finally been put to rest… Now a bestselling author, when he was twenty-four years old, he stumbled upon a troubling secret about his family – a secret that was carefully concealed. In shock, Nicholas embarked on a journey to uncover the truth that took him from the Basque coast to St. Petersburg – but the answers wouldn’t come easily.

In the process of digging into his past, something else happened. Nicolas began writing a novel that was met with phenomenal success, skyrocketing him to literary fame whether he was ready for it or not – and convincing him that he had put his family’s history firmly behind him. But now, years later, Nicolas must reexamine everything he thought he knew, as he learns that, however deeply buried, the secrets of the past always find a way out.

Page-turning, layered and beautifully written, Tatiana de Rosnay's THE OTHER STORY is a reflection on identity, the process of being a writer and the repercussions of generations-old decisions as they echo into the present and shape the future.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The Other Story I've loved De Rosnay's writing in her other books, Sarah's Key, The House I Loved and A Secret Kept, but this one was slow and boring and awkward... Not what I'd come to expect (and love).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Boring This book is extremely boring and just seems to go on and on about how vain the main character is. Not much of a story line and not worth the read.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed! I had read "Sarah's Key" and "A Secret Kept" by this same author and thoroughly enjoyed them. However, "The Other Story" was nothing like I had expected. Very weak storyline and more than once I stopped and wondered if I should continue but did with the hope that it would improve. Basically this is a story about a man who is totally into telephone sex, there is room for nothing else. I would definitely not recommend this book.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Such a disappointment There's nothing worse than wasting your time reading a bad book :( I kept waiting, hoping for this story to improve but sadly it just dragged on and on.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The Other Story I just about gave up reading this as it was so boring but was pleasantly surprised near the end of the book. Not at all like her other last books
