I found this book to be just ok. I don't know if something was lost in translation or what. I felt that it could have been written better. It's a bit over the top, making you feel like this guy was stupid already, so why was he trying to become stupid? There were some parts I would have liked to see expanded upon with a more detail than the author gave them. The ending left me feeling a bit confused.

Satirical novel about being unhappy/unfullfilled because he's too smart. As his only recourse, Antoine tries to become stupid in a variety of ways. Translated from French.

A funny, outrageous, quirky, and puzzling novel that asks: What if ignorance really IS bliss? Does happiness follow if we become stupid, if we discard intellect, self-knowledge and a regard for the consequences of our actions?
