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

This book is...
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.
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’

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.

Mi-a placut inceputul insa impresia pe care mi-a lasat-o cartea, dupa 200 de pagini citite, e aceea ca desi ca personajele sunt conturate perfect si armonios, defapt sunt doar fatalitati si nu sunt complete deloc. Sunt foarte multe puncte de suspensie intre detaliile caracterelor care care nu pot fi interpretate.

Le lit défait, one of the later of Françoise Sagan’s 20 novels, brings readers into the world of theater—playwrights, directors, and actors—of which she was a part as the author of several plays. Béatrice is a popular stage and film actress and a party girl whose lovers are legion and who has no qualms about indulging herself frivolously, spontaneously, and completely. Five years earlier she had a fling with Edouard when he was an unknown then quickly dumped him for a much richer lover. Now that ...more

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

Sagāna man vienmēr asociējusies ar kaut ko smalku un sirdij sāpīgu, bet laikam jābūt arī tādai grāmatai, ko lasot, neko no tā nejūt un gribas tikai mest pret sienu no dusmām "kur es atkal sevi ievilku". sižets ir tik vienkāršs, ka acis sāp lasot 238 lappuses, jo visu var uzrakstīt 3 teikumos. Sākumā vēl bija interesanti un protams, varoņos varu arī sevi ieraudzīt, bet pasniegšanas veids ir vļeh.

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.

J'avais commencé l'année 2015 comme j'avais terminé 2014, avec un roman de Françoise Sagan. Splendide portrait de 2 personnalités très différentes, et du couple qu'ils forment. Un peu longuet par moment, mais globalement magnifique.

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

She went to her family's home in the south of France and wrote her first novel, Bonjour Tristesse, at age 18. She submitted it to Editions Juillard in January 1954 and it
