"მე მოხეტიალე კაცის დიდებულ ცხოვრებას ვეწევი..."


"ჭეშმარიტება ის არის, რაც ცხოვრებაში თავის თავს ამართლებს."


"მამაკაცი ზარმაცი და უხეშია, მას არ უყვარს, როდესაც თავს აბეზრებენ და მოთბინებიდან გამოჰყავთ. მას სიმშვიდე და დასვენება უყვარს. მას შემდეგ კი რაც ადამიანთა მოდგმა არსებობს, ერთთავად მოუსვენარ, ნერვიულ, გამაღიზიანებელ, ისტერიულ თანამგზავრთანაა დაკავირებული და ამ თანამგზავრის სახელი, ქალი გახლავთ. თანამგზავრი უცნაური ხასიათის პატრონია, ათასგვარი გუნება-განწყობა, ცრემლი, განაწყენება, პატივმოყვ

I’ve always admired Jack London for the person that he became through sheer determination. He was a person that was born into a destiny comprised of long hours of manual labor but in spite of this position found time whenever possible, even at the cost of only four hours of sleep at night, to study writing. His studies were not formal and consisted of spending long hours in libraries reading the works of others, applying a force of will to his writing, and suffering through to his ultimate succe ...more

This is a very dufferent Jack London from "White Fang" and "Call of the Wild". He's a raconteur, an observer, a rennasance man and a lover. He loves owning things, and has the money to buy people or at least their knowledge. He is someone you'd love to have on your radar, maybe even your best friend

Or at least Forrest, the main character is. He and his wife Paula live in California, in a sprawling house desugned by him, in paet for her. Theur lives are what they are. They can enjoy the good life

Half way through this book, I started skimming rapidly, not willing to waste my time on a book that ends horribly (the problem with reading ebooks- if i had been reading a hard copy, I would have read the last sentence and saved four hours of my life).

My problems with this book:
Glamorizes and romanticizes adultery and suicide- this is my major reason for the 1 star rating.

Characters are unrealistic, even the setting is unreal. For example, the main character Forrest has a huge ranch (250000 acr

I really like this book,I have read it a couple of times. The beginning is really dreamy and joyful. I cannot however say the same about the ending.

a great woman, but I tinks history is a little bit impossible, I think love is a feeling that can be controled by a person,so....

Everyone is happy in the same way, but the unhappy ones differ with their unhappiness....

О зарождение чувств написано очень красиво и тонко, но было страшно наблюдать, как рушится семья.

Why didn't I like this book? Just because of an irritating personage of Paula - this woman artificially lifted in the eyes of readers to the status of superwoman. And what we see in the end - so foolish deed of not the wise and adult woman, but of indecisive one, it was simplier than make a choice and I really was revolted by the denouement. This perfection felt in my eyes in spite of the fact I'm a woman and I should understand and justify her, but no, I can't.
Thomasin Clarke
Very well conveyed psychological drama. I felt so sorry for Paula, who is so perfect and leads such a perfect life. London confirms the saying "it happens to the best of us".

Замечательный мужчина, лучшая из женщин... Постепенное вскрывание и разрушение идеала. Красивая, банальная концовка. Вещь неповторимая, бесподобная в каждой части и в целом.
Varser Zakaryan
I wasn't so impressed as I'd expected to be.
Anyway I am glad that I read it as I liked Dick's character very much.

London drew heavily on his life experiences in his writing. He spent ti
