I wanted to put this book down more than once but as I was waiting for my connecting flight at the airport and had no other book on hand I kept on reading for a few hours and am so happy about it.
Anna Gavalda. La consolante. – Free Online Library
This book gets you and is such a book about love love and love. And about a midlife-crises and how you can really live your dreams even if its the difficult way to live.
It is beautiful written from the middle to the end and I really was sad when I finished This one is hard to read from the beginning. It is beautiful written from the middle to the end and I really was sad when I finished it. This is a rather odd book. It reminds me of Elizabeth Goudge and Rumer Godden because nothing really seems to happen but there’s a story there that’s awfully compelling. This is a story about life falling apart and coming together. About life and death and living despite being dead and the slow decaying death that is a meaningless life of going through the motions.
There’s a main character, a man I don’t particularly like and who I thought very little of until I reached the almost-end of the book This is a rather odd book. There’s a main character, a man I don’t particularly like and who I thought very little of until I reached the almost-end of the book. There’s Anouk, who haunts the book, peeking out of corners where you didn’t expect her to be.
There’s Claire, the man’s sister, who’s hard to pin down, but could have an entire book written about her as well, there’s that much hidden depth to the character.
There’s Alexis, who moves from one extreme to the other over the course of his life. There’s Mathilde, the man’s sort-of-daughter, who’s here and there and rather like Little Women’s Jo, with appendages in odd places and in that not-quite-fitting stage of adolescence.
And then, there’s Kate and the village of children. I would love to have been one of Kate’s children. I would have loved to have grown up there though, really, would I? I don’t know for sure And really, Kate forms the center of the novel, as she forms the center of the children’s lives, all the while slipping out of the frame with Anouk in the distance behind her.
I don’t quite know how to define this book because, like Anouk and Kate, it keeps slipping out of my grasp and going where I don’t expect it to go. While I always enjoy Anna Gavalda’s books, this is perhaps my least favourite so far. Charles, while reasonably likeable, did not grab me as the central protagonist, and the sudden shift into bucolic fantasy in the last third of the book felt so whimsical that it was ridiculous.
Nevertheless, there are dimensions to Gavalda’s writing style that I enjoy, such as her occasional bursts of almost st While I always enjoy Anna Gavalda’s books, this is perhaps my least favourite so far. She also uses minor characters to great satirical effect. The highlight of this novel for me was a brief cameo from some particularly loveable characters from one of Gavalda’s previous novels, which also gave a great sense of completeness to Gavalda’s growing portrait of modern Parisian life.
This book tortured me for about 2 weeks. No, it’s brilliant, it’s captivating, but it hits right in the weakest point of the reader. This book is about each of us and none of us. I love Gavalda’s books but so far this is the one.
I’m endlessly in love with her style! Short sentences but so full of irony, so full with love. The plot of Consolation is essentially this: But as always seems to be the case with Anna Gavalda, her books are not about plot but about characters.
La consolante : Anna Gavalda :
She creates people who are so rich and multifaceted that they seem far more real than imaginary. Consolation is a beautiful conxolante on love and second chances and guilt and responsibility.
I must confess, though, that I only gave the book a 3. Der Roman handelt von dem erfolgreichen Architekten Charles Balanda.
Charles lebt eigentlich schon eine Weile nicht mehr richtig. Er funktioniert nur noch. Eines Tages bekommt gavaoda einen Brief, der ihn vollkommen aus der Bahn wirft. In dem Brief stehen nur drei Worte: Charles holt die Vergangheit ein, er verliert sich in ihr und nur widerstrebend setzt er sich mit ihr auseinander Der Roman handelt von dem erfolgreichen Architekten Charles Balanda. Charles holt die Vergangheit ein, er verliert sich in ihr und nur widerstrebend setzt er sich mit ihr auseinander.
Anna Gavalda hat wieder eine vielschichtige Familiengeschichte geschaffen, die uns jede ihrer Figuren unglaublich nah bringt. Das Buch ist in zwei Abschnitte eingeteilt. Die vielen Perspektivwechsel lassen das Ganze etwas chaotisch wirken. Consoalnte war es sehr anstrengend zu lesen, ich war ein paar Mal kurz davor, abzubrechen. Der Handlungsverlauf war ocnsolante. Ich wusste manchmal nicht, was die Autorin denn eigentlich aussagen will. Sep 18, Maguxy Ruiz rated it did not like it.
Batiburrillo de ideas sin sentido, historia que puede ser interesante pero la forma de narrala prrrrrrrr ruido de pedorreta Es hat mir gefallen, sehr gut gefallen.
Auch wenn es in den Bestsellerlisten ist, ich consolate, dass es jeder zu Ende liest.
Oct 24, Maris rated it it was amazing. Like many others have already commented, the first half was very difficult to read.
The author challenged the reader, no question about it: But the story was with me long time after I had finished reading the book, it had a lot to tell me.
Mar 30, Delphine rated it it was amazing. This book is so well-splashed with tears and bathwater that I couldn’t loan it out, even if I gwvalda to. E’ stata una lettura a intermittenza. Le prime pagine -tante!
Era difficile la comprensione. Charles cambia il percorso della sua esistenza in seguito a un episodio che lo trasporta in quel passato pieno di sogni, di aspettative e di sentimenti che ha accantonato: Finalmente la storia ha una svolta.
E qui, nel leggere la sua storia, mi sono emozionata. Al termine della lettura faccio un bilancio. Jan 21, Christina rated it it was amazing.
Ce roman est fait d’inattendus gaalda de surprises. Comment la vie d’un homme peut basculer, comment peut-il s’en relever. Il suffira d’une lettre pour tout bouleverser. One word to define this book: A book plenty of humanity, as very often in the writing of Anna Gavalda. This story is maked by unexpected and surprises. How the life of a man can rock, how can he get up again.
He seems to be an ordinary man, recognized in his job, in emotional lack. A letter will be enough for upsetting everything. We look the life of this charming man, from his life of front to his descent into hell, and then his revival with energy and happiness. The strength of Anna Gavalda is to make the reader vibrate in the same times of the characters. It is a book in which we don’t want to be at the last page. This book is to be recommended to readers who like to see the life of ordinary people, who keep scars but consolant move forward.
