after reading this novel i can see why Franck is such a successful screenwriter. his scenes come alive. the book opens with husband and wife watching a movie. the husband continually tries to hold his wife's hand for some sort of affection which she continually refuses. this action continues for weeks until finally the husband asks what is wrong. she's in love with someone else. it's easy to hate the wife and i still do even after the book has been resolved but that's not really what the moral o [...]

"E durante toda a viagem, entre a estrada e a sua memória, aparecerá a silhueta daquela mulher que ele amou tanto, caminhando pelo passeio com os seus dois filhos e ele pensará que a vida será o que tiver de ser, dura e má, longa ou fácil, mas aqueles três serão sempre os seus."Uma história que aterra no meio de um casamento, numa fase tremida, sem nunca nos dar mais do que pequenos vislumbres do tempo que passaram felizes. O casal com dois filhos encontra-se no final da relação, sem [...]

This book gutted me. It was a painful read going through the emotions of a man whose wife left him for another. It was nice to read a male perspective as too often, women in dissolving relationships play the victim card and paint their partners as uncaring or unfeeling.

You can fight against any reality you can get a handle on, even yourself, but not against outside passions.*He watches as she turns into a different person. The same as before in many ways, but with something missing. Their keywords, which constitute their memory, gradually disappear. Soon he will be orphaned from her.*He writes to purge himself, to give some direction to his excavation of his own feelings, and perhaps to win her back. He writes because he cannot do otherwise.*I don't know. I do [...]

This isn't for the feint of heart. It really hits you like a ton of bricks. A marriage in free fall. When will it end? How will it tear you apart? Do you force the inevitable or let it play out? Many questions and hard answers. Must read if you've had something like this happen. But be forewarned. It will leave you floored.

I felt as if I was reading a secret diary of this man, abandoned by his wife. The emotions are very real and the descriptions very visual. I enjoyed it, even if though I felt the book was a bit repetitive from time to time.

Sentiment mitigé sur ce récit à la loupe d'une rupture. Il n'y a que très peu de recul, le récit est majoritairement brut au niveau des sentiments du narrateur et donc très partisan.Elle, en faute, anxiogène et profiteuse jusqu'au bout. Lui, la victime qui après s'être débattu, avoir tout essayé, se retire bon prince. "Elle", "Lui", c'est ainsi qu'ils sont désignés pour créer un sentiment d'universalité : ils pourraient être n'importe qui. Voire tout le monde - Cette histoire ser [...]

I'm a big fan of Richard Yates' "Revolutionary Road," so I was initially excited to start this book and read about the demise of another well-meaning relationship. But about a third of the way in, I realized that I'd need to be French to better appreciate it (it was a bestseller in France). The concept of both husband and wife having affairs is very European, but I'm too American to sympathize with characters who go all extra-marital on each other. I greatly disliked the female protagonist, and [...]

I can't remember when I first read this book, I'm thinking around 10 years ago. Its still on my bookshelf if a little battered after so many moves. The first word that springs to mind when I recall it is melancholy. Would I recommend it? Yes its a beautifully written piece, you are drawn immediately to the narrator and his struggle to accept his changing life. The portrayal is so real that at times it feels voyeuristic, almost instrusive. The problem is who to recommend it to? The emotions are s [...]

A lyrical, almost stream-of-consciousness story about divorce, and what it does to the narrator. No character is actually named, although some of his friends get letters, but they are all economically, yet throughly drawn. Despite a lack of happy endings or well-behaved characters (two of my pet peeves) I loved this book. The translation I read has beautiful, carefully wrought language and I could empathize with the characters' emotions, if not actions. Highly recommended.

"Lakaplar, aşkın derecesini gösterir."Senarist/yazar Dan Franck'tan evli ve çocuklu Parisli bir çiftin kendilerini hırpalaya hırpalaya ilişkilerini sonlandırma hikayesi, erkeğin bakış açısından anlatılıyor. Kafam benzer şeylerle doluyken okumayaydım, kitabın karanlığı bu kadar etkilemezdi, belki o zaman eseri daha objektif değerlendirebilirdim, taklipçilerim affetsin.

This novel told me in advance everything that was going to happen to me in the following year or so. I can't read this anymore because it is too sad, but I will always remember it as an amazing book and one that changed me and my life.

Unfortunately, my French isn't what I want it to be, so I'm reading this book side-by-side with the English translation.I always thought this book was beautifully written, like poetry.

Magnifique. Les descriptions sont débordantes de vérité. On entre dans l'histoire et dans les personnages dès les premières lignes.

The way Dan Franck writes so beautifully and poetically about such a tragedy is outstanding and keeps me wanting more. My only problem with the book is it's now out of print.

A haunting portrait of a marriage falling apart. I read this book over a decade ago, and yet it hangs around my mind as though I read it yesterday.
