It's in Japanese. I can't find it in another language on the internet, which is very strange. Also, the language seems... a little bit off. The translator used a lot of burrowed words from English/French instead of using the traditional words with the same meaning.
As far as I read, it looks like a novel about Roger Pardi nicknamed Ropa （ロパ）. Don't know if it's a parallel of Michel's life or the story of a real person.
It may be written in Japanese because it might be directed to Japanese people. Is it related to Japan's great earthquake in 2011?
Yep. Definitively a fictional story about Michel's life. I haven't finished reading it (1/5 done). It's pretty difficult to read, and the only certain thing I can get out of it is that the main character have some kind of resonance with nature, like hearing trees talk. Another explanation is that people around the trees can hear them. It's going to take me several readings before understanding everything. As of now, college and friends are taking a lot of my time.
I wanted to share an upload I have of the book which is in English (PDF format). I'm not sure who translated it. I got the book from a Facebook page known something along the lines of Thiaoouba XP. Here's the link, don't worry it's safe (I have no reason or desire to infect anyone with a virus). But until I create an account for a site where you can preview the pdf online, this will be the only quickly available way I have -for those who haven't read it yet. http://www.2shared.com/document/6tg2s_S ... venge.html
I hope you enjoy!
