Brīnišķie mākoņi

3.5  ·  Rating Details ·  380 Ratings  ·  26 Reviews
Šis romāns, līdzās citiem F.Sagānas darbiem ir viens no emocionālākajiem, izjustākajiem un skaistākajiem 20.gadsimta stāstiem par mīlestību, laulāto attiecībām un lielo egocentriskumu, kas valda starp viņiem. Tas ir romantisks stāsts par bagātu amerikāni Alānu un šarmantu parīzieti Žozē - par skaistām un neticami kaismīgām jūtām, ko viņi jūt viens pret otru, bet kuras arī ...more

'Wonderful Clouds'....how do I loathe you, Let me count the ways.

You are pretentious crap, peopled with self obsessed prats who live unbelievably inane yet viciously stupid lives. Alan, a wealthy american who is insanely jealous of his french wife,Josee the 100%ly unsympathetic character who, instead of leaving the pathologically horrible husband instead opts to sleep with a number of people including, during the course of a very short book, an ex-lover, no sorry two ex-lovers and a shark fisher

I made the mistake of looking at other reviews here before writing my own....ouch!! While I can see that these characters do nothing to endear the reader, I did feel like Sagan conveyed Josee's struggle enough to be engaged in her dilemma. Married to a very rich and very jealous husband, Josee waivers on whether to stay or leave him. If the book were longer than 109 pages it would certainly get tedious but I found it compact enough to read in two sittings and not be so irritated by the back and ...more

Francoise Sagan's novels are, essentially, highbrow, decadent, poetic, French chick-lit - except that these stories never have happy endings. This particular novel wasn't that great. I enjoyed reading it, but it was a guilty pleasure. The writing felt rushed and a bit formulaic, especially in comparison to my two favorite Sagan novels - Bonjour, Tristesse, and Un Certain Sourire.

C'est vrai que les caractères ne méritent pas notre sympathie, mais on pourrait lire ce livre plutôt comme un document d'histoire qui raconte une certaine misanthropie et un comportement auto-destructeur chez ces jeunes 'enfants nuisibles' un peu égarés des années 50 et 60. On n'a pas de pitié pour eux car ils sont responsables de leurs destins, mais Josée est à la recherche d'elle même sans vraiment le savoir.

Son écriture me rappelle quand même celle de F. Scott Fitzgerald - qui écrivait aussi

More subtle Sagan, but Josee is just pathetic. A bit sleazy female character. Her melancholic and spineless voice is just like Nouvelle Vague's song 'Too Drunk To Fuck' (you don’t have to know the melody to know what the song is about).

She has no will power, everything is open in her relationship with her Florida born and raised husband Alan, another spineless painter with Oedipus’s complex and decadent need to follow his own wife from the private detective notes. Yes, give me another glass of

'Once a bitch, always a bitch, what I say.'

It's a tale of hateful, contemptible characters who repudiate their own marriage just to inflict hurt upon one another. Josee is a profligate whore, while her husband, Alan, is a jealous neurotic.

It doesn't end well.

Очень странная история - героиня, которая вообще не в состоянии сформулировать, чего она хочет в единицу времени, какие-то непонятные интрижки и душевнобольной муж.
Досадно, мне всегда нравилась Саган. Но, видимо, не всегда новая книга оказывается на уровне предыдущих.

Étouffant et étourdissant, au fond une histoire des deux alcooliques qui ne font rien du tout.
Après avoir lu cela je n'ai plus aucun doute sur l'impact positif inestimable du mai 68 sur la société française.

Ce n'est pas mon roman préféré de François Sagan, mais il se lit facilement et reste plaisant du début à la fin. A noter que le couple que forment Josée et Alan apparaissent également dans le roman "Un profil perdu", qui se déroule après celui-ci mais que j'ai lu avant. C'était finalement assez intéressant de lire cette partie de leur histoire avant le dénouement.

Не ми допадна толкова, колкото " Добър ден, тъга" и "Усмивка почти", но отново се възхитих на безпощадния й маниер да прави дисекция на любовта, брака, зависимостта. Във всеки роман разпознавам авторката като прототип на главните героини и се питам колко ли бурен и сложен любовен живот е имала самата тя. Много ми хареса следният откъс, който звучи като откровение на Саган:

"Аз не вярвам в някаква пустота. Този вид патос ми е досаден. Никой не е удавник. Лично аз смятам, че всеки човек очертава жи

These are not 'nice' people, these are not people that I would probably like to know, but neither are they cartoon characters where I felt that I 'knew' them in any glib way.

A destructive relationship with no easy resolution, beautifully given life on the page ... and at approximately only 100 pages, once started I could not put it down.

So far Francoise Sagan can do no wrong as far as I'm concerned. This novel's melancholic take on two obsessive lovers unable to live together yet unable to part was beautifully rendered. I'll even forgive her the ending which I'm still puzzling over.

Beautiful people creating drama for themselves because they have money and time and don't know what else to do with them. I'd forgotten what a bunch of jerks these characters are. But, yeah, I'll probably read more of these books.

Par to, cik maz vajag, lai būtu laimīgs, un cik daudz reizēm vajag, lai to saprastu. Mīlestība franču gaumē - vientulīga, ekscentriska un nesaprasta.

A depressingly stupid little book about a couple of idiots, who, thank god, could never possibly have existed.

За съжаление все пвоече се разочаровам от тази авторка. Изключително повърхностно четиво като за тинейджъри. Давам две звездички само защото се чете бързо и все пак се чете някакси.
