      No more paradesThe Great War enduringly excites literary imagination, ever growing the abundant library of books with WWI as main stage or décor. Apart from the few history books I read on it, Céline’s Journey to the End of the Night and Ford Madox Ford’s Parade's End, both masterpieces inspired by the Great War, significantly colored the ideas and images on it in my mind, as did Tardi’s stunning but gruesome graphic novel It Was the War of the Trenches.Although I am well aware I still h [...]

      PARABOLA SULLA FEDELTÀ Jean-Christophe Rufin è medico e viaggiatore (anche a piedi), è stato diplomatico (ambasciatore di Francia in Senegal e Gambia, ma si è dimesso dopo tre anni): membro dell'Académie Française, è il presidente di Action contre la faim e uno dei fondatori di MSF (eppure, ce lo riesco a vedere poco interagire con un Bernard Kouchner, altro fondatore della mitica associazione). Nel 2001 ha vinto il Premio Goncour, è stato pubblicato in Italia da Dalai, Bompiani e Ponte [...]

      Coinvolgente sin dalle prime pagine, lo stile del racconto mi faceva nascere una curiosità e fantasticare sull’evolversi della vicenda, per volgere ad un finale che non mi aspettavo, e che ho amato.Una perla,preziosa.

      Senza frontiere.Una bella storia di dignità e integrità morale in epoca post bellica, questa raccontata da Jean-Christophe Rufin, che si svolge in un piccolo paese della provincia francese all'indomani della fine della Grande Guerra.Il protagonista e il suo giudice, militari entrambi, come in un romanzo di Simenon (come non pensare a La Camera azzurra?) si fronteggiano in un duello simbolico nel caldo torrido di un'estate in cui sembrano esserci solo loro ad affrontarsi, così come sembrano es [...]

      I had to read this book for school for French. So I was supposed to read this book in French, but I actually read it in English. I know, shame on me, but at least I understood the book this way. That is why I can admit, this book wasn't too bad.I went into this book knowing pretty much nothing. I had to read it anyway, whether I liked it or not, so why bother, right? I just knew it was about a guy, Morlac, who was locked up in prison around world war I time. And well, after reading the book, tha [...]

      "Le collier rouge" est un roman mignon qui raconte comment un homme fait la paix avec son chien troo fidèle et sa femme beaucoup moins. Je lui donne trois étoiles dont deux pour les nombreux passages bien écrits et une pour sa promotion de la reconciliation conjugale.

      Well that was tedious It got better towards the end, though once the action of the book wasn't limited to a barking dog anymore.

      What Happened on Bastille Day?"Do you know he's in prison?""No. What's he done?""Something stupid, on Bastille Day."A nice serendipity to be reviewing this fascinating French novella on Bastille Day itself! I sensed this was something special from the moment I opened it. It is one of those lovely Europa Editions that feels good in the hand and is set so generously on the page. It is a simple story with only two main characters, both warmly developed. The setting is an almost empty prison in a sm [...]

      I'll likely appreciate this more after my book group discussion. For me, however, the rating is closer to 2.5 stars than 3. It is a novella, but felt somewhat protracted. A World War I "hero" imprisoned for an act of subversion. You don't learn what that is or his reasons for the act until the very end of the story. By that time, I was teetering on the brink of not caring. Ultimately a love story, but took a very circuitous route to say so. I had higher hopes for this one than it delivered, unfo [...]

      Ik heb voor dit boek gekozen omdat de titel en de foto op de voorkant mij interesseerde. Het is een verhaal dat gebaseerd is op waargebeurde feiten. Het boek speelt zich af in het Franse Berry, een Frans dorpje en in de zomer van 1919. In het Franse dorpje zit een oorlogsheld, Morlac, die de enige gevangene is in de kazerne. Raymond, de cipier, heeft weinig werk want Morlac is zijn enige gevangen. Hij heeft maar met 1 iemand last. Een hond die dag en nacht jankt voor de cel van de gevangene. Die [...]

      Zatím asi největší překvapení tohoto roku. I když to napsal francouz, tak to není nudný, nikdo tam neprcá ani nejí čokoládu nebo kroasanty. Dá se říci, že je to vlastně jen trochu hutnější povídka, ale přesto zanechá stopu jako jégr v gatích po sobotě, protože Rufin tu opravdu vykřesal nádhernej příběh, který mě na 99 stránce málem poslal na záchod. A to přátelé mám rád psy akorát tak na smetaně. A ať se mi nikdo nesnaží namluvit, že jsem necita - [...]

      FANTASTIC.This little book is a jewel. Marvelously written.It is the story of a young man during WWI. He was a farm boy who was taken by the local military recruiters and sent to war. He was uneducated like all the farm boys of his area, and had no idea what the war was about, he just knew that one day they were going to pick him up. As it was, he was at his girlfriends house when they came for him, her dog just followed him. Apparently that was not abnormal during wars, dogs fought along their [...]

      J'ai écouté ce roman en audiolivre. J'aime la période où se déroule l'histoire : juste après la Grande Guerre ; la guerre est finie mais les vies de milliers de gens sont bouleversées. L'auteur nous emmène dans une sorte de huis clos entre le héros Morlac, le juge, la femme du héros et Guillaume le chien avec qui Morlac entretient une relation coimplexe qu'on finira par comprendre.L'histoire est légère, même si le fond est plus grave, et parfois drôle avec l'histoire du chien.

      A moving novella highlighting the toll of WWI on the soldiers who were conscripted. From anybody else than Rufin, I would surmise an opportunistic reason for bringing out such a tale as the commemoration of the various stages of the first world war are underway. I expect this well-crafted story will become a set text in schools, and why not? There is a satisfying element of mystery since for many chapters, not only are we kept in the dark about the veteran's motivations for the act that landed h [...]

      Un livre que je n'avais pas envie de lire Encore la guerre Et voilà La plume virevoltante de Rufin nous invite le temps d'un trajet en train à méditer sur la violence de la guerre, la nature de l'homme Et tout cela, à l'image de Rabelais ou Voltaire, autour d'un roman concis, structuré, aux phrases plus belles les unes que les autres Et tiré d'une histoire vraie !

      Reseña en navegandoentrelibros/202.5 estrellasEs que pucha, esperaba completamente que por lo que estaba siendo juzgado el protagonista fuera otra cosa, relacionada con su perro, pero otra cosa. En fin, que no estuvo mal por eso las 2.5 estrellas.

      J'ai Lu ce livre en deux heures durant un voyage en train. J'ai bien aimée être plongée en 1919 dans une petite ville et démêler l'écheveau de cette enquête militaire. Bien écrit, atmosphère d'époque bien rendue.

    26. Caroline on said:

      Une anecdote simple, mais rendue par une écriture précise, maîtrisée, élégante et classique qui m'a ravie. Structure du récit prenante et habile: on n'apprend qu'à la fin ce qui est reproché au soldat tout au long de son instruction à procès qui constitue pourtant le gros de l'histoire.

    27. Nick on said:

      This book is not so much about loyalty as it is a man's pride stemmed from his own stupidity. It's not what you'd expect; Humanity is the tale, and the dog is just the tie that binds it all together. Not a bad book, but open ended and leaves you thinking.

    28. Evelyn Foss on said:

      A unique book that held my attention. I liked the way the combat on WW I was described. I'm a dog lover and I loved the ending!
