My mother sent this to me for my birthday, which struck me as a rather surprising choice.
I ended up reading the whole graphic novel in a few hours... and enjoying myself in the process. The cat is a truly fun narrator: he is biased, dishonest, selfish, jealous, yet affectionate, clever and hilarious. The depiction of the Maghreb's Jewish Community of yesteryear was rather perfect, and of course that warmed my heart... my family was like that, just like that, but they are now just about all gone,

Well what a really nice book. First off, I don't know if this just me, but compared to other books on jewish religion and culture/history...this is...well...way less pessimistic. I don't know i just find alot of books with jewish setting like that. That diesn't mean they're not enjoyable. I'm just saying. For example i REALLY LUUUUV maus by arthur spiegleman, it's what i was referring to when i said peasimistic,by the way.

Le Chat du Rabbin, Tome 1 La Bar Mitsva by Joann Sfar
Some months back, I saw the animated film of Joann Sfar's graphic story. So, it was a thrill to get my hands on the BD.

This is a story, I can safely tell you, where a very cynical, rather cruel, and very canny cat acquires the gift of speech. This cat happens to belong to a Rabbi. And, with the advent of speech, it proceeds to argue over various aspects of the religion, mostly with it's master, but also with his master and so on. The ideas, while set in the framework of Judaism, are applicabl

La préface prétend «discussion intelligente [...] du judaïsme», mais je ne sais pas si elle dit vrai. Ce que je sais par contre, c'est que cette vignette

résume parfaitement cette oeuvre. Et que même si je n'apprécie pas particulièrement le dessin de Joann Sfar, je me réjouis de savoir que cinq autres tomes de cette série m'attendent.

Une excellente BD.
Si je ne suis pas une grande fan du dessin, j'ai adoré le contenu. Drôle, critique mais sans être accusateur, informatif sans être moralisateur, j'ai vraiment apprécié !!!

Un coup d'oeil sur le premier tome du Chat du Rabbin et c'est le choc: le style de Sfar est beaucoup plus rudimentaire que les beaux dessins fluides de l'animation du film. Par contre, l'histoire et les textes sont très proche à quelques détails près. Comme on devrait s'y attendre, il y a beaucoup plus d'information et de détails dans la BD. Je ne sais trop pourquoi, le style un peu brouillon de Sfar me rappel un peu le style surréaliste et néo-primitiviste de Chagall (lui-même juif, quoique rus ...more

Je ne lis presque jamais de BD ou de romans graphiques mais après avoir entendu beaucoup de bien de cette série et avoir bien ri en écoutant l'adaptation radio sur France Culture, j'ai voulu lire ne serait-ce que le premier tome, puisqu'il était disponible à la bibliothèque. La lecture est agréable, drôle et légère tout en se voulant culturelle, nous incitant à réfléchir. Je ne suis pas sûre de continuer la série mais j'ai passé un bon, certes court, moment de lecture en compagnie de ce chat mal ...more

Hacía tiempo que lo tenía pendiente de lectura, y no me ha defraudado. Crítica al judaísmo utilizando un gato que tiene el poder de hablar. Muy ameno, algunas diálogos son de troncharte de la risa.

A very cute book, but serious in its own ways. A few very sad scenes in the middle end, but mostly light hearted.

I read it mostly to help in teaching myself french. I was particularly surprised with how easy it was to read even as a bit of a novice. Excellent for this purpose due to little variation in grammar and lack of "big words." But it doesn't take away from the story at all, which was itself an absolute delight.

My only complaint is that the handwriting made it a bit difficult for me, as

Le chat du rabbin est adorable: c'est bien simple, il ne lui manque que la parole. Il fait la joie de sa maîtresse, la fille du rabbin. Jusqu'au jour où il croque le perroquet et se met alors à parler. mais il ment, prétend être innocent de la mort du volatile. Le rabbin lui interdit alors tout contact avec sa fille. Le chat, triste de ne plus voir sa maîtresse, décide de faire sa bar-mitsva. Le rabbin fait alors appel au rabbin du rabbin que le chat fait devenir à moitié fou. Cette bande dessin ...more

Recommended to Feather by: Fama
Divierte bastante y promete más todavía, y además enseña un par de cosas interesantes sobre las creencias judías. Rozó las cuatro estrellitas pero le amarreteo hasta tres porque el tomo me quedó muy corto y muy introductorio, pero sin dudas me dejó con ganas de leer más del autor, y algo me dice que en otros tomos mejora el promedio.

De estos libros que parecen sencillos, pero que, si se leen despacio, siembran semillas dentro. Muy interesante la mezcla entre las emociones autobiográficas de miedo a quedarse solo sin nadie que te cuide y los diálogos mayeúticos de este gato. Un personaje al que no puedes dejar de entender.

Such a wonderfully clever concoction of histories and philosophies ... With a hearty dose of cat skepticism to keep it moving but with another dose of heartfelt sentiment that keeps it close long after you've finished... Now available in English at Strand Books.

This is a very promising beginning to a series I have heard so much about. I love how the cat gains his voice and how the author questions the religious tenets of Judaism through the cat's journey.

Bonnes réflexions sur la religion et ses incohérences, tout cela dans la peau d'un chat qui remet en question la religion, plus particulièrement le judaïsme. Graphisme ok, chat assez laid.
