Publisher's Summary

Février 1927. Le Tout-Paris assiste aux obsèques de Marcel Péricourt. Sa fille, Madeleine, doit prendre la tête de l'empire financier dont elle est l'héritière, mais le destin en décide autrement. Son fils, Paul, d'un geste inattendu et tragique, va placer Madeleine sur le chemin de la ruine et du déclassement.

Face à l'adversité des hommes, à la cupidité de son époque, à la corruption de son milieu et à l'ambition de son entourage, Madeleine devra déployer des trésors d'intelligence, d'énergie mais aussi de machiavélisme pour survivre et reconstruire sa vie. Tâche d'autant plus difficile dans une France qui observe, impuissante, les premières couleurs de l'incendie qui va ravager l'Europe.

Avec la participation de Zygmunt Miloszewski pour les mots lus en polonais.

Enthralling story with a historical view

Pierre Lemaitre is a great storyteller and narrator shedding light on a historical period he researched in detail. Political, social and other topics are deftly woven into an entertaining narrative.

un peu lent. je préfère au revoir là haut

l'histoire commence bien mais s'atténue et reste peu vif pour le restant de l'histoire. j'apprécie toujours l'ampleur de la recherche et les références historiques du livre

Great entertainment

Great story telling with an interesting historical backdrop. It is even better than "Au revoir là-haut"
I am usually suspicious when the author doesn't leave the narration to a professional but he does an excellent job (however the snippets of Polish are odd and really don`t add anything).

Absolutely loved this book

This is my first review, as I am not one to write reviews, but I enjoyed this book so much and its reading by the author, that I have listened to it twice already. I don’t know what the English translation & audio version of this book is like, but read by the author himself in French was an absolute delight as he could not have captured the “voice” of each character any better. I listened to this book before it’s predecessor “Au revoir là-haut” and definitely preferred this one, but it was fun to have a bit of an introduction to Madeleine in that first book, - which is actually about her brother, - but you don’t need to have read or listened to the first book to thoroughly enjoy “Couleurs de l’incendie”.

I laughed out loud, I would rewind and listen again to certain passages just to absorb the beauty of the writing and how wonderfully it was written and read. I loved the story, the characters, the plot twists and how they all tie in at the end. Even the short musical interludes between each chapter created such a perfect atmosphere for this audiobook. An absolute treat!!

J’ai dévoré ce livre

La lecture par l’auteur est incroyablement vivante. Je n’arrivais pas à poser mes écouteurs. J’ai passé des heures formidables à marcher en écoutant ce livre. Merci
