This book is...
Verbose
Melodramatic as all hell
Somehow believable
Atrociously paced but somehow that adds to its authenticity

The characters do things to one another that made my blood boil as I read. I picked this book up about 6 months ago and still think about the emotions surrounding the novel when I see it lying innocuously on the bookshelf.

Kinda makes me want to read another of her works, but I'd need to be in the French over-the-top state of mind that they purvey sooo very well.

Wonderful book. I actually find it a little unsettling just how accurately Sagan depicts affairs of the heart.

Patul răvăşit, un roman scris de Françoise Sagan, nu avea mai nimic care să mă atragă. Nici titlul, nici subiectul şi nici numele autoarei nu-mi provocau o mare curiozitate, dar acum, după ce l-am citit, nu pot să constat decît că am, în continuare, tot felul de prejudecăţi literare.

Patul răvăşit (trad. Adina Diniţoiu, Editura Art) e un roman cu foarte multe ingrediente franţuzeşti, iar Françoise Sagan le pune în pagină cu un simţ aparte pentru fineţurile psihologice esenţiale într-o histoire d’

Povestea lui Sagan sondează psihologia unei iubiri pătimașe, cu reliefuri patologice, proiectând-o pe un fundal adecvat, al lumii decadente a spectacolului și high-lifeului parizian. În ciuda faptului că par să trăiască în epoca necesității plăcerii, a celebrării libertinajului și individualismului, protagoniștii lui Sagan par însă mai lipsiți de libertate ca niciodată – iată cum percepe chiar Edouard ceea ce trăiește cu Beatrice: Era ca și cum s-ar fi urcat din mers într-un carusel asurzitor și ...more

I loved this book so much. It has very exceptional characters with special personalities and their relationship between each other was sad and unfair. This love novel was unlike others. It describes the strength of a love and jealousy and cheating. In this book love overcomes everything and makes the female part to love back. really enjoyed reading it.

3.5 stars...this wasn't my favourite of her books. Don't get me wrong, the story was great as it really gave you food for thought however it seemed like there was something missing, something I quite can't put a finger on.

I'm past page 70, and I still don't know what this book is about. Something something something man loves woman who is off her head and doesn't care... and I'm waiting until I see why Saigon wrote a book about this.

Gostoso de ler, porém era limitado como todas histórias que falam de amor de casais exclusivamente.

Letto da adolescente ... Non ne conservo nessun ricordo. Non è buon segno ;)

Love can happen even in the place you would never expect to find it!
