L'UN DE MES LIVRES CULTES !
LE livre qui m'a fait découvrir Werber et devenir complètement fan de l'auteur !
Le gros bémol : la suite ! Si ça passe encore avec l'Empire des Anges, je trouve que Werber a totalement dénaturé le personnage de Michael Pinson et son histoire avec la trilogie des Dieux. Une trilogie que j'ai encore bcp de mal à lui pardonner aujourd'hui.

This book takes place in my heart and in my mind. The logo of Michel and Raul 'You and me against the morons' will be my logo. Sometimes I had a thought that B. Werber is the one from the Great Initiated.
Actually I believe in his Paradise. It's so well-prescripted, considered and absolute. I hope it' true=)
Now I gonna read L'empire des anges by Bernard Werber and Le miroir de Cassandre by Bernard Werber

That's it, I give up on this book...For the excitement and awesomeness I was expecting from a book about life after death, this is unbelievably boring. Everything is written so clinically, so devoid of enthusiasm. The author is merely reporting events and there is little attempt to fascinate the reader.

Not to mention the depressing characters. The main character, Michael, is so passive and spiritless, I found it hard to keep reading the story through his eyes. You want to root for characters

Роман рассказывает о покорении terra inсognita XXI века - Континента Мёртвых. Идея интересна, но в значительной мере строится на туманных предположениях, поэтому неправдоподобна. Социолог из автора намного лучше, чем писатель. Примерно на середине книгу стоило бы закончить - тягомотина невыносимая. Кажется, что высосано уже всё, как Вербер внезапно находит ещё пару пальцев. Не хочу продолжать знакомство: слишком много дешёвой философии в манере Коэльо.

I still have mixed feelings about this book. The beginning was awesome and kept me going, I almost swallowed every chapter but starting from the middle of it I was more and more bored. The idea had potential but got lost somewhere by the author, this lively spark simply disappeared so I had to force myself sometimes to finish. Such a pity... but I'm not giving up on Werber's works just yet.

Бернар Вербер повежда сред живота след смъртта в “Танатонавтите”
http://www.knigolandia.info/2010/03/b...

На младини четох доста езотерика, но тази страст приключи рано, за добро или лошо. Но Вербер не пише езотерика. Не пише и фантастика. Още по-малко научно изследване. Какво пише Вербер? Не знам, по много от всичко, и е страхотно.

J'ai beaucoup aimé le début de ce livre. L'intrigue, les personnages, l'écriture ...
Malheureusement, je l'ai trouvé un peu long à partir de la moitié du livre. Le suspense s'estompe, et même si l'histoire reste intéressante, j'ai eus tendance à décrocher, et à espérer finir vite ce livre.
Dommage !

Tanatonautai – šio žodžio reikšmės aiškinimu pradedamas romanas. Išvertus iš graikų kalbos jis reiškia „mirties jūrininkai“, romano pasakojamuoju laiku taip vadinami „mirties tyrėjai“, asmenys, kurių tiriamasis objektas yra, kaip jie patys sako, Galutinis kontinentas. Iš to ir susideda pasakojimas: keletas bičiulių gramzdina savanorius į komą ir registruoja jų įspūdžius, patyrus mirtį.

Fantastika neretai kapanojasi po gyvasties tąsos, nelaimėlių gaivinimo, įsikūnijimo ir persikūnijimo reikalus,

Qu'arrive-t-il après la mort? Voilà le sujet du deuxième livre de Bernard Werber que je lis. J'aime bien le genre littéraire qu'il dit avoir proposé le premier: la philosophie fiction, mélange de science-fiction, philosophie et spiritualité. D'ailleurs, j'ai beaucoup aimé ce curieux mélange dans Le jour des fourmis. Mais ici, malgré un sujet de roman que je trouve excellent et les évidents efforts de documentation de la part de Werber par rapport au sujet des théologies de la mort, j'ai eu tenda ...more

I read that book when I was in high-school and it really did something to me; it's a clever and original novel about the discovery of the last land unknown to mean, Death. It's about discovery and passion, life and death and love and friendship, it's mythical and magical, it's moving and funny.

And when I said it was 'clever', Bernard Werber's novels always are; he has a knack for teaching you things without your really noticing it. Here the lesson is about world's religions and myths. The ficti

Kuo toliau skaičiau, tuo nuobodžiau darėsi, o galiausiai viskas pradėjo rodytis pernelyg kvaila. Tad skaityti net nebaigiau. Iš knygos mano akimis teliko tik gera idėja ir pusėtini personažai. Knygos tempas keistai svyruoja nuo detalaus ko nors aprašinėjimo iki greitos perbėgos per tam tikrus epizodus. Apibendrinčiau tuo, kad rašytojas man pasirodė nepakankamai talentingas ir nepakankamai lakios fantazijos, kad sugebėtų įgyvendinti tokią grandiozinę knygos idėją.
Alex Tumanoff
Очень неровная и затянутая книга. В том издании, которое я читал перевод хромал. В двух местах очевидно, что переводчик ошибся. О самой книге: отличное начало, провисающая середина, совершенно прекрасный момент собеседования души и ангела и стремительная концовка. Читать безусловно стоит, но надо запастись терпением, чтобы продраться к важным мыслям.
Anatolij
Taka słaba historia, żebym nawet będąc nastolatkiem odrzucił ją nie skończywszy. Nie Francuzi – wynocha!, nie Chrześcianie – wynocha! Czy to coś dobrego? Na dodatek absurdalne marzenia o pielęgniarkach (oczywiście, one są absurdalnie, jeśli to nie o porno chodzi).

Nie rozumiem, dlaczego B. Werber miał depresję, bo mu odrzucono w ekranizacji "Tanatonautów".

1/5.

C'est assez particulier mais c'est un bon roman, mythologie, philosophie, critique de la religion, des croyances, de la vie et de la mort, un peu long, si je devais y trouver un défaut.

Voyager dans la mort pour comprendre l'importance de la vie? ou pour savoir s'il existe quelque chose après? Très intéressant. 4/5
Slavik Fokin
Для создания этой книги автору, судя по всему, пришлось перелопатить огромное количество материалов, касающихся отношения к смерти в разных религиях. Но все оказалось напрасно. Роман получился ужасный - и хуже всего то, что он неоправданно длинный.

I always love Werber's books, but this to me isn't his best. Yet, a marvelous craft of old and new, mythology and science.

Bernard Werber's "Ants" trilogy made him one of France's most popular science fiction novelists in the 90s. Werber began studying journalism in 1982 in Paris, where he discovered the work of sci-fi writer Philip K. Dick. In 1991 he published the novel Les Fourmis (Empire of the Ants), a complex fantasy novel in which ants were the heroes and humans the pesty antagonists. The novel became a cult hi ...more
