Este livro centra-se em torno de um pintor russo do século dezanove, chamado Vladimir Radskin. O Jonathan, personagem principal do livro, desde muito cedo que tem um fascínio pelas obras deste pintor. Vladimir Radskin viu a sua mulher a ser assassinada de forma sanguinária e, desde então, nunca mais pintou mulheres nas suas obras. No entanto, uma lenda afirma a existência de uma obra, na qual o pintor antes de morrer pincelou uma mulher. Jonathan e o seu melhor amigo Peter, ambos americanos, têm...more

* La început n-a fost cea mai excepţională carte, însă treptat s-a transformat într-un fel de burete care îmi absorbea dorinţa de a citi cât mai mult şi am devenit oarecum maniacă, purtând cartea asta cam peste tot. Oricum, a fost drăguţă cu ideea foarte originală pe alocuri şi clişeică pe alte părţi, cu dragostea eternă şi sufletele pereche care se întâlnesc adeseori şi în vieţile următoare. Stilul uşor şi cursivitatea poveştirii ridică mult calitatea cărţii. Merită citită!

Cuốn sách đầu tiên của Marc Levy mình đọc, và cũng là cuốn mình thích nhứt. Hình như có một quy luật như thế này về các cuốn sách của Marc Levy - cuốn đầu tiên bạn đọc sẽ là cuốn bạn thích nhứt.

Vẫn là một ý tưởng độc đáo khác của Marc, mang hơi hướm Á đông: kiếp luân hồi - con người chết đi, và đầu thai thành một người khác nhưng mối lương duyên với những người trong kiếp này vẫn kéo sang kiếp sau, sợi dây đó dẫn lối cho những người lạc mất nhau tìm thấy nhau, những người mắc nợ nhau trả nợ nhau...more

A big deception. I read other books by this author that I just loved - Just Like Heaven was one of them. But this stupid ending, plus the ridiculous reencarnation theory created by Marc totally turned me off.

Se intampla uneori ca doua suflete sa se intalneasca pentru a nu mai forma decat unul singur. Si atunci depind pentru totdeauna unul de celalalt. Sunt de nedespartit si se vor cauta neincetat, din viata in viata. Daca, in cursul unei existente terestre, o jumatate ar ajunge sa se separe de cealalta, sa rupa juramantul care le leaga, cele doua suflete s-ar stinge de indata. Unul nu-si poate continua calatoria fara celalalt.

Acolo ne-am iubit Jonathan, pana in ultima zi. Cand te-ai stins, te-am cul...more

Un poco de misterio, un poco de fantasía, un poco de romance... Y un libro bastante soso. Teniendo en cuenta que Marc Lévy no es un escritor maravilloso, esta novela ni siquiera está a la altura de otros ejemplos de su producción.

Recommends it for: Read it because it is superb!
This is my all time favorite by Marc Levy.

The atmosphere he builds which is intertwined with a cultural background that I find deeply appealing maybe contributed to this feeling of interest and pleasure in the reading.

Behind the story of the two main characters, there is a hint of survival of the soul and return - through reincarnation - to this Love they so cherished.

The settings in different times and cities are convincing and colorful, the heroes generous and capable of self sacrifice. Romant...more

It's really a classic love story. With a twist. But after you watched all the romantic comedies and read all the chick lit in the world, this book isn't such a revelation. Keep in mind though that it's been written before all this romance explosion and enjoy the beautiful love story, honest and genuine feelings and the surprises along the way. You'll even discover it was a read for sore minds :)

I'm really surprised but I didn't like this book in spite of I can call myself a fan of Levy. In this story he returns to the idea of mixing the reality and the incredibility but in this case it seems to me that he's got lost in the plot himself. Actually the book looks like the draft variant that just puts the main story line but requires lot of additional work.
Arabela
It was a good read on the way to work by "le metro". The underlining idea - the possibility of reincarnation and the search of the soul mate - is as old as Athens. The contemporary setting did not bring anything new to it. At best, the book made me aware of some criteria in analyzing a painting.
Alexis
Fairly typical plot elements for Levy or Musso: Loyal best friend that exists solely for comic relief. Bizarre plot twists that may or may not involve the quasi-supernatural. Main character is suddenly and inexplicably drawn to a lovely and intriguing female that has not much of a personality besides being lovely and intriguing. (Why are these female characters always portrayed in intelligent professions, yet somehow still so vacant?)

Bah, I’m probably being too harsh. There were a couple of rea...more

Insupportable de mediocrite.
Eduard
At many times I felt like I wasn't really reading a book, but instead I was watching a Hollywood movie that was clicheic, formulaic and designed for a target group that I'm definitely not a part of.

The supernatural elements were so ridiculous and Levy's theory of metempsychosis is laughable, to say the least.

Take the love story that you've seen in all media, add some supernatural elements, a fictional painter, a best friend character that can magically get you everything and anything that's vita...more

Ist es möglich, dass sich Seelen, die einander sehr lieben in einem anderen Leben erneut treffen und versuchen sich erneut zu vereinen? Davon handelt der Roman „Bis ich dich wiedersehe“ von Marc Levy. Jonathan, ein renomierter Gutachter und Experte kommt auf Bitte seines Freundes nach London, wo er die Bilder begutachtet, die von Wladimir Radskin gemalt wurden. Als er die Galeristin Clara kennenlernt, kann er sich des Gefühls nicht wehren, dass er sie schon lange kennt, dabei ist dies eigentlich...more

É à volta da pintura que se centra mais uma obra de Marc Levy. Desta feita o autor cria duas personagens que já se ligaram no passado, e que quando se encontram pela primeira vez nesta vida, sentem logo uma atracção mútua. O pintor russo Vladimir Radskin é o ponto de partida para estes dois mundos se encontrarem: Clara é uma famosa galerista de Londres e Johnathan um especialista em arte de Boston. A última obra do pintor é descoberta em Londres e faz com que Jonathan parta para aquela cidade co...more

It is not just a simple romantic love story. Its intense, with unexpected plot twists and sometimes funny. The book will draw a reader in its world and wont let go until you finish reading, you will forget about your reality for a while. Thats why this storyline is simply awesome! A perfect book to movie adaptation.

Pour les sentimentaux(ales) je dirais que ce livre est le chef-d'oeuvre de Levy. Une lecture légère et une intrigue saisissante comme on les aime.
Levy peint les scènes avec une délicatesse et un légèreté raffinées. Dommage que le livre ne soit pas porteur de plus de sens ou de profondeur.

Wow! Il y a de l'amour, de la magie/mystère et surtout: des personnages qui me tiennent au coeur! Clara et Jonathan font bonne équipe.
Le livre commence avec une lettre écrite par un homme, dédié a son meilleur ami. Quand j'ai terminé le livre, j'ai relu cette lettre et j'ai tout a fait compris! Ca ma atristi de lire ce livre, mais depuis je l'ai déjà relu. C'est le meilleur livre de Marc Lévy que j'ai déjà lu!

Printre cele mai frumoase si originale povesti citite in ultimii ani. Desi contine elemente fantastice, ele nu deranjeaza, ci vin intr-o completare fireasca la realitatea in care personajele isi duc existenta. Inceputul, usor anost, este compensat pe parcurs de misterul si actiunea povestii, ceea ce o transforma intr-o carte pe care nu o poti lasa din mana. Chiar daca se inscrie in seria cartilor de vacanta, ingeniozitatea subiectului abordat face ca povestea sa merite sa fie citita.

le roman commence par une lettre au debut j'ai pas vraiment pigé le truc mais aprés avoir fini le roman j'ai relu la lettre et j'ai tout compris...une histoire dechirrant qui englobe tout, amitié, fraternité, alour, jalousie, vengance,tristesse,la mort,la vie,... la fin ma atristé et émerveillé a la fois ce qui prouve que le roman etait un succés!

I had to read it for school, I was really relieved when I finished it.

I expected more from him because I liked the first one so much. The plot, involving fate and doom, was nice, but the magic was missing.
Tania
it was a really wonderful love story i love this book so much .

Make me think of Dan Brown :)But sorry, not so convincing. The chemical reaction between Clara and Jonas is not plausibly explained. The plot of Anna's mother seems ridiculous at last (like "Back to Eden") And the question whether Edward loves Clara more than his own daughter still remains. And the predictably perfect closing: "and they live happily ever after" is an disillusion :(
Anyway, some parts are quite good :)

Un libro pequeño que leí en dos días, y fue una lectura ligera que me sacó del temido "reading slump" en el que me estaba metiendo.
Fue una historia entretenida, pero muy romántica para mi gusto, además de meter el tema de la reencarnación demasiado profundo, aunque era necesario, pues es bastante importante para el romance de la historia.
Me sacó varias sonrisas, fue entretenido, pero no me mató.

“J’ai arpenté les galeries sans fin des grandes bibliothèque, les rues de cette ville qui fût la nôtre, celle où nous partagions presque tous nos souvenirs depuis l’enfance. Hier, j’ai marché le long des quais, sur les pavés du marché à ciel ouvert que tu aimais tant. Je me suis arrêté par-ci par-là, il me semblait que tu m’accompagnais, et puis je suis revenu dans ce petit bar près du port, comme chaque vendredi. Te souviendras-tu ?

Je ne sais pas où tu es. Je ne sais pas si tout ce que nous avons vécu avait un sens, si la vérité existe, mais si tu trouves ce petit mot un jour, alors tu sauras que j’ai tenu ma promesse, celle que je t’ai faite.

A mon tour de te demander quelque chose, tu me le dois bien. Oublie ce que je viens d’écrire, en amitié on ne doit rien. Mais voici néanmoins ma requête : Dis-lui, dis-lui que quelque part sur cette terre, loin de vous, de votre temps, j’ai arpenté les mêmes rues, ri avec toi autour des mêmes tables, et puisque les pierres demeurent, dis-lui que chacune de celles où nous avons posé nos mais et nos regards contient à jamais une part de notre histoire. Dis-lui, que j’étais ton ami, que tu étais mon frère, peut-être mieux encore puisque nous nous étions choisis, dis-lui que rien n’a jamais pu nous séparer, même votre départ si soudain.”
