Ако, все пак някога светът бъде разрушен, това ще бъде от някой създател. Р. Г.

На 2 декември 1980 година Ромен Гари се застрелва. Оставя писмо до издателя си: „Никаква връзка с Джийн Сибърг. Умоляват се страстните любители на разбитото сърце да се насочат другаде.”

Няма по-силна памет за един писател от творбите му.

В предговора към романа "Зарядът на душата" Гари пише:

Paperback, 280 pages
Published 2013 by Леге Артис (first published January 11th 1978)

Ромен Гари улавя душата на човечеството:

Ромен Гари и антиутопична фантастика? Звучи като нещо невъзможно, но “Зарядът на душата” е красиво оформен факт (макар текстът на задната корица да е странен). След „Голям гальовник”, „Животът пред теб” и сборниците “Птиците идват да умрат в Перу” и “Бурята” бе обяснимо нетърпението ми да я прочета. Гмурнах се в книгата, знаейки отнапред, че душите на хората ще бъдат пленявани вътре… и попаднах в изкривен, абсурден,
Интересна идея за дистопичен роман, искам да прочета някой ден наистина добре развита подобна тема. Обаче не е подходящ материал за този писател - не се справя много добре. Неговата сила е в нещо друго.
Все пак "Сияние на жена" е връх.

this is a quite interesting dystopian version of the cold war atmosphere. It could actually turn into a breath-holding spy adventure. However, after finishing it, I was left with a feeling of disappointement, as the main element of the plot, exploitation of the human soul, is left somehow unexploited (oh the irony). The writer didn't elaborate that much on the philosophical meaning of this discovery, but mainly focuses on how the political powers on the planete are trying to seize an advantage f ...more

This novel, in which human souls are used to fuel the French car, the Citroen, is one I read a long time ago. I really have no idea how good a novel it is, but the basic idea of it has stayed with me for a long time.

C'est assez étrange de lire ce lire, 42 ans après sa parution, qui propose un carburant propre, sans déchet, qui est inépuisable... et finalement on se dit que ce serait bien... La déshumanisation a bien avancé toute seule...

I read this book when it first appeared on newstands, so my memory of it is minimal, but it made enough of an impression on me to have remembered its title till now. It was engaging and held my interest, but its main strength is the power of its imagery of human corporatists imprisoning human souls to power electric toothbrushes—souls are not divisible, so it's all or nothing: toothbrush or airplane—and the notion of the sea of human consciousness and creativity. My recollection is that I'd have ...more

Recommends it for: Anybody interested in science and its limitations
What if tomorrow people were able to catch people's spirit to use it as an endless energy? The theme is not so original. It reminds the Sorcerer's Apprentice of Goethe. Nevertheless, beautiful writing, nice perspective, a bomb made of people's mind, able to destroy the humanity of people. If there is anything to destroy over there... ...more

In The Gasp a scientist is able harness the energy that escapes from humans at the exact moment of death. The global consequences of this feat are looked at with an interesting balance of sarcasm and empathy. I did laugh out loud at some of the dialog that took place as the world politicians discussed what to do with this new power source that some people defined as the human soul.

C'est un livre différent. En effet pendant les premières 20 pages je ne pouvais pas comprendre l'environnement de l'histoire et ce m'ennuyait. Mais peu à peu je vais le comprends mieux qu'avant.
