Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended I read the French version of this book, entitled “Vivre”. It is not the story of Marc Lépine, but rather, the story of his mother, Monique, who for almost 20 years tried to detach herself from her son’s villainy by cloaking her identity, pain and humiliation from the outside world. Vivre is a gripping, occasionally heart-breaking novel. Monique Lepine’s journey is astonishing. I highly recommend this book. I do not regret the few hours I spent reading it, and I can honestly say it has expanded my awareness and empathy toward parents and families whose children are involved in the justice system.
