Two nine-year-old twins are the protagonists of "the Notebook". Because of the war, their mother decides to leave them in the country at her mother's house. There, there is still food there. But her mother will mistreat and exploit them mercilessly. To protect themselves, the two boys decide to harden themselves physically and psychologically during exercises of which they take notes in a large notebook. They develop their own moral concepts without models or instructions. Agota Kristof illustrates in this book the effects of war on the civilian population in the light of a perverted childhood. She tells us about uprooting and loneliness, violence and cruelty.
