Gabriel Boutros Day 4


Face/Mask


Some recent reader comments:

5 stars:  "An interesting story that explores the dark recesses of inner despair for people living in the reality of a fallen society.  Yet the flame of human determination is never quite quenched, and finds itself wandering in many directions as Janus, our protagonist, searches for a purpose in life outside his mundane job and unsatisfactory family life. " - Andrew Kasch, Amazon.com


5 stars: "Boutros has written a very mature work that demonstrates the lengths to which people will use subterfuge to achieve their goals. On the one hand, Face/Mask harkens back to the flavour of cold war novels in the tradition of le CarrĂ© and on the other it creates a whole new psychological spectrum within which its characters co-exist. At it's core, however, Face/Mask exposes human nature for what it really is: flawed, tortured, morally ambiguous, but ultimately hopeful. A terrific read that I highly recommend." - Lorne Kelton, Amazon.ca

4 Stars: "In Face / Mask, Gabriel Boutros presents an uncomfortable alternative view of the near future...Against this bleak existence, people continue to live their lives. They love and marry, have children and jobs. Their lives are familiar enough to us to make this new world believable. Anyone who knows Montreal will find its transformation disturbing...This is an interesting, thought-provoking novel. It reminded me of “1984”, with its heavy police presence, widespread surveillance of the population, and betrayal of others in order to save oneself..." -BondiBookgirl, Amazon.com
