J'ai lu Vendredi ou la vie sauvage, la version jeunesse du roman de Tournier, en étant jeune, et j'ai lu plusieurs fois Vendredi ou les limbes du Pacifique en grandissant. La version adulte avait ma préférence, mais c'était peut-être parce que je n'avais pas relu la version jeunesse depuis si longtemps. Les deux sont si bons, que je ne veux pas donner de préférence, d'ailleurs ; je préfère juste relire rapidement les Limbes du Pacifique et me noyer dans les mots de Tournier.

Très bon roman qui raconte simplement l'histoire de Robinson Crusoé et de son ami Vendredi. On sent que les thèmes ont été adaptés pour les plus jeunes: l'ordre maître-esclave est établi, puis inversé. On souligne la cruauté de la civilisation envers les animaux et la nature. Crusoé choisit en toute connaissance de cause de demeurer sur son île, plutôt que de rentrer en Angleterre, comme dans les autres versions de cette histoire. Ça rend la lecture facile et agréable pour tous.

Et on ne peut s'

Une adaptation jeunesse de "Vendredi ou les limbes du Pacifique" qui est elle-même une réécriture du Robinson de Defoe. Je lirai une prochaine fois ces deux romans.
Je recommande uniquement pour les jeunes, mon fils l'a lu à 9 ans.

Dans le cadre de l’étude du célèbre mythe de la caverne, nous avons d’abord visionné un film où ma note s’est élevée à 13.5/20 (maximum de la classe) et j’espère que l’analyse de ce livre élèvera un peu la moyenne. J’ai beaucoup cherché le sens du récit et il y’aura donc un argument d’analyse, ce qui est généralement assez rare quand j’argumente mais vu que j’ai fait cet exercice très sérieusement, je pense que cela peut intéresser.

Tout d’abord, concernant le livre, il est très fluide et l’hist

At first it seems like just another slow, boring retelling of Robinson Crusoe, but once you’re about halfway through (if you stick with it that long) it starts to differ from the original and gets interesting when Robinson learns that living a “savage” life makes him happier than pretending to be living in England with its rules that no longer apply and he eventually realises that there is nothing wrong with Friday's way of life.

Since the 18th century Robinson Crusoe has been nourishing the imagination of young people century and giving them a base to study moral and intellectual subject. But the book of Daniel Defoe also had a big success with the adults because it illustrate the value of humans in Europe and America at that time. However in the 1960s, Michel Tournier wrote a book names Vendredi ou les Limbes du Pacifique. Robinson is still the main character of the book but the black man that he saved play a major rol ...more

Publié dans une collection jeunesse, c'est aussi un livre pour tous les ages. Une réinterprétation du classique de Daniel Defoe, avec une très belle réflexion sur la solitude, la cohabitation entre les cultures et la recherche de l'harmonie entre l'Homme et la Nature. Je l'ai lu quand j'avais 8 ou 9 ans, et je l'ai relu plus tard avec autant de plaisir. À mettre entre toutes las mains.

Este livro pode parecer, inicialmente, algo como um guia de sobrevivência numa ilha selvagem e desabitada, no entanto com o andamento da história conseguimos perceber que vai para muito além disso. Robinson é um homem civilizado que depois de um naufrágio, do qual é o único sobrevivente, vai dar à costa de uma ilha desconhecida. Nos tempos iniciais, faz esforços para criar uma civilização naquela ilha, de se manter são, consciente e ocupado de forma a não perder controlo total. Vai criando leis, ...more

Robinson lançou-se ao mar em Setembro de 1759, a bordo do Virgínia. O seu objectivo era fazer trocas comerciais e fortuna, se possível, na América do Sul. Ao largo do arquipélago de Juan Fernandez, próximo da costa do Chile, o navio é apanhado numa tempestade e naufraga, sendo Robinson o único sobrevivente. Até à passagem de um navio ao largo da sua Speranza passaram-se 28 anos, pautados pelos seus esforços de civilização e pela companhia do fiel cão Tenn e de Sexta Feira, um índio resgatado à c ...more

Apesar de não ser a primeira vez que leio este livro, a verdade é que não me lembrava minimamente como é que ele era.
Não gostei da história, acho que acabou por ser um livro mal conseguido e a verdade é que não consegui acabar de ler.
Tem falhas na história, uma narração mal construida e para quem pensar a é um clássico foi por isso que ela não gostou, bem não é assim pois sou fã de clássicos mas este foi muito dificil de ler

One star for the details of primitive technology used on the island, they were interesting (yet unrealistic), one more for the last 25 pages that kinda turned the whole atmosphere around, other than that I think I just read the most overtly racist and pro-colonialism trash ever. The fact that this was the "children's" version, makes it even more horrifying... I might have let some things pass by if this were written 200 years ago, but is almost contemporary! Shame.

c'était un des premiers livres que j'ai lu quand j'étais encore à l'école, j'avais beaucoup apprécié, je pense que si je le relirai de nos jours j'aurai certainement une autre idée. je ne sais pas. En tout cas, à l'époque, il m'avait beaucoup touché.
Je garderai par contre toujours cette réflexion ou plutôt critique par rapport au fait qu'un homme blanc qui représente "la civilisation", donne un nom à un noir, qui est lui "sauvage" ... en même temps je me dis que Vendredi aussi à du certainement

This is the second version of Vendredi; it is the first I read. I have read it several times: when I bought it in Lyon in 2006, and again a couple of years ago. It is intended for children and has helped bring Tournier into contact with many young people, as he visits schools around France. He writes about this in Les vertes lectures.

At first, I found the book a bit dull, more like a survival manual. But then I started to realize the transformations a person suffers when it is 28 years on a desert island and found the wonderful end though with feather Friday.

Classique revisité qui est lui-même devenu un classique, ce roman est un chef-d'oeuvre. L'évolution de Robinson sur l'île, l'arrivée de Vendredi, leur vie, l'explosion accidentelle des réserves de poudre et leur nouvelle vie, tout est propice à la réflexion. L'évolution de Robinson est la clé de l'oeuvre.

Mais um livro que li e reli e voltei a reler. Um dos livros preferidos da minha adolescência.

O naufrágio de Robinson Crusoé e as suas aventuras com Sexta-Feira, tantas vezes contadas, adaptada amiúde ao cinema é um clássico intemporal que aconselho vivamente a todas as pessoas de qualquer idade.

This book surprised me... I had to read it for school, and therefore, as it always happens, it seemed a boring and exhaustive read. But I actually enjoyed it!

I had to read this book for my Portuguese class in my school. Now that I've finished it, I can say that it's a really good book. If we read this story with attention, we can see that it has a life lesson: it's the simple things in life that are the most extraordinary.

Livro da juventude... Acho que durante anos fiquei a pensar no Sexta-Feira e na ideia de viver isolada numa ilha... Além de tudo, se bem me lembro este livro também dá grande valor à amizade que cresceu entre os dois :)

Este livro relembra-nos o quão importante é a comunicação entre o ser humano e que viver numa ilha isolada pode ser divertido, mas só durante momentos escassos...

It was a very good school book. You enjoy the story and make you wonder how narrow a man's mind can be. It was a sad ending but one expected to be like that.
