Dans son coeur, une étrange institution, l'école des Dieux, et ses professeurs : les douze dieux de la mythologie grecque, chargés d'enseigner l'art de gérer les foules d'humains pour leur donner l'envie de survivre, de bâtir des cités, ...more

C'est donc mon meilleur Werber jusqu'à présent. Ce livre ne vous laissera pas indemne, s'il ne donne pas des réponses complètes il chamboule vos convictions et vous retourne le cerveau à forces de questions. Et si tu deviens Dieu? Les protagonistes sont des élèves-Dieux (anciens mortels) qui reçoivent des cours de la part de maîtres-Dieux (ceux de l'Olympe) dans une sorte de concours où le gagnant deviendra Dieu et tous les perdants transformés en chimères. On compte parmi les élèves des célébri ...more

В училището за богове на Вербер

Цялото ревю тук: http://knijenpetar.blogspot.com/2014/...
Първата ми среща с Вербер се състоя преди доста години, когато с приятели си разказвахме невероятни истории. След поредната история, нанесла върху мен изненадващо точен удар, ме "полазиха мравки". Това си е много специално състояние, за което си има куп медицински термини. Но през онова шантаво време на философски ентусиазъм, претворило ме в мисловен пътешественик, самият аз се превърнах в мравка, благодарен

Ce livre c'est vraiment Bon!
This book kept me riveted. the topic was derivative but done in a way that was still really imaginative and really interesting. I also enjoyed seeing all of the various historical characters mixed in.I will stop here before I end up giving spoilers.
There is also a question at the very end of the first page that has always wanted me. Especially after being told that I had un imagination debortant. scary idea, that one's own "fertile imagination" could drive one around

Les Fourmis et Les Thanatonautes ont bouleversés mon univers. La barre était donc haute pour Nous, les dieux.
J'ai été déçu. Je m'attendais à des découvertes intrigantes dans les extraits de l'Encyclopédie du savoir relatif et absolu, mais il n'y avait que du recyclé, déjà lu dans les romans précédents. Je m'attendais à un monde fascinant (le monde des dieux) qui serait un amalgame des mondes des dieux des differentes religions, comme l'avait fait Les Thanatonautes pour le monde des morts. Décept

Сама задумка автора мне изначально не очень нравилась, однако в предыдущей книге этой серии - "Империи ангелов", хотя бы были интересные идеи и более или менее сносный сюжет. А в продолжении - одна больная фантазия. Не спасает и постоянная отсылка к греческой мифологии. Может не стоило растягивать серию на несколько книг...

Има автори, които запълват много страници с малко съдържание – при тях има излишни изречения, случки и въобще неща, които могат да бъдат пропуснати. Така беше при „Аномалия“ на Людмила Филипова. Други автори казват точно толкова, колкото трябва – всяка дума е обмислена и има своето важно значение за целия текст. Такъв автор е Робърт Шекли, както забелязахме в „Корпорация Безсмъртие“, такъв е и Кристофър Прийст с „Преобърнатия свят“. Бернар Вербер е от най-висшия тип автори по тази класификация.

Всички, които са чели произведения на Бернар Вербер, са съгласни по няколко точки:

а) романите му са необичайни;
б) романите му са увлекателни;
в) романите му не могат да бъдат класифицирани само в един жанр.

Горните твърдения важат с пълна сила и за третата книга от поредицата „Танатонавтите” – „Ние, боговете”. Французинът продължава да изследва кармичния цикъл на прераждане и развитие на всички живи същества, но този път от гледна точка на вече превърналия се в бог-чирак Микаел Пенсон. Още...

So I didn't actually finish this because it was simply too infuriatingly boring and bad. I think I've forced myself through enough if it to count it as "read" however.

Everything about this book is bad. It seriously lacks all the qualities that make a good book.

There is absolutely nothing positive to say here.

Just thinking about it annoys me too much to want to write a more elaborate review. It's just a shame this author is so popular in Russia (= his books are easy to find in Russian, even on

Е, дочакахме го! Година и половина след като ви писах за фантастичните “Танатонавтите” и “Империята на ангелите”, “Ние, боговете” е най-сетне прочетена и точно в момента ми идва да удуша Бернар Вербер, съвсем сериозно. Причината – очакваната последна книга от трилогията всъщност поставя началото на нова такава - „Цикълът на боговете“ - и завършва чисто и просто в нищото, което

Moins bon que les Thanatonautes et L'Empire des Anges, mais pas mauvais non plus.
Werber soulève des questions très intéressantes, mais sa représentation à peine dissimulée du peuple juif (en tant que peuple martyr mais supérieur à littérallement tout le reste du monde) se pointe encore le bout du nez ici.
Malgré cela, je crois que je continuerai la série tout de même.

Un brutto libro
Veramente, brutto. Di thriller non ha nulla, e persino il titolo è fuorviante: l'originale "Nous, les dieux" (che mi dicono corrispondere a "Noi, gli dei") calza sicuramente meglio. Sembra già da questa traduzione "libera" della copertina che si voglia far apparire il libro quello che non è. E visto che con parole mie non lo saprei dire meglio, copioincollo quelle di Alessia Heartilly: "C'è un aggettivo che mi ronza in testa riguardo a questo libro: pacchiano. Non so se si usa anc

А эта книга - уже развивается в нечто новое. Особенно мне понравилось мысль про глаза другого человека, в них мы как правило видим свое отражение. И если нас это отражение устраивает, мы продолжаем общаться с этим человеком. И даже влюбляемся в тот образ, который нам приписывают глаза другого – тогда это уже роман.
Но человек меняется, и тогда мы не видим того, что видели раньше и хотели бы видеть сейчас. Чувства охлаждаются и мы обращаемся в поиски за другими глазами. Так заканчивается любовь,

Lecture très décevante. Ayant gardé un bon souvenir de ma première lecture par cet auteur "Les fourmis", j'ai cru pouvoir trouver celui là aussi passionnant, mais c'était tout le contraire qui est arrivé. C'était trop long et très ennuyeux au point de me forcer à le finir. Rien n'est mémorable dans ce roman, ni intrigue, ni écriture et encore moins les personnages.

This book whas okay. I haven't read his other works, so I can't compare. But I don't think it was as bad, as everybody thinks. Yeah, some times it was a liitle bit boring, but not awful. I just didn't understand the end, it was a little bit disappointing, and I had hope for more.

"Ние, Боговете" , бях доста отрицателно настроена към таз книжка,макар че ми я даде и препоръча една приятелка. Казвам,че бях отрицателно настроена и не мислех,че ще ми хареса, защото не обичам гръцка митология, а в книжката има доста от Гръцката митология... И така....

Although this is the first of a trilogy, I felt like I was jumping into the middle of a series. Michael Pinson, having traversed the lands of the dead and the realms of the Angels in Weber's previous series (Les Thanatonautes, L'Empire des Anges), is now reborn on an Island where he finds a school for would-be gods. However, he gradually realizes that the "lessons" are also an elimination contest in which only one pupil will survive. An intriguing concept, but the characters fail to convince as ...more

Šķiet, ka esmu izlasījusi tikai kādas lielas grāmatas ieilgušo ievadu. Saprotu, ka grāmata ir daļa no triloģijas, kura ir daļa no... triloģijas (?), bet esmu vīlusies. Ja vērtēju to kā ievadu, dodu 4 zvaigznes, bet - kā atsevišķu grāmatu - tikai 3 vai pat 2.

Arī sākumā bija nepārtraukta, garlaicīga iepriekšējās grāmatas skaidrošana, bet aprautās beigas šķita vienkārši nežēlīgas. Jāmeklē nākamās daļas.

Même si j'ai préféré les Fourmis, je reste plutôt satisfaite de ce 1er tome qui m'a replongé dans les cours sur l'histoire de l'humanité et des religions sans pour autant répondre à toutes mes attentes.

Let's just say that I really hope there will be another book., because I don't like to be left hanging like that.
Still, it was a book I enjoyed reading, mostly because it made me think about my opinions of humanity.

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

Cela signifie se mettre en quête de l'amour mais, en fait, il s'agit plutôt de la quête de sa propre identité. Un coup de foudre s'avère souvent la trouvaille d'un "bon miroir", nous renvoyant un reflet satisfaisant de nous-même. On cherche alors à s'aimer dans le regard de l'autre.” 3 likes
