P.S. I am enoying Microcosm. Oddly, I put it on hold at my local library, and the library checked it out to me the day before the book was available in stores.
The French often leave out “ne” in such cases. It is more literary to say something like “ce n’est pas”, but usually people just say “c’est pas”. They mean the same thing.
