Guylain Vignolles liebt Bücher und hasst seinen Job in einer Papierverwertungsfabrik. Darum liest er jeden Morgen auf dem Weg zur Arbeit im Regionalzug um 6 Uhr 27 laut ein paar Seiten vor, die er am Tag zuvor der Schreddermaschine entrissen hat: sein ganz persönlicher Akt der Rebellion gegen die Vernichtung von Literatur.

Eines Tages entdeckt er im Zug einen USB-Stick, auf

“ For all those fellow commuters,he was the reader. The bizarre character who each weekday would read out in a loud, clear voice from the handful of pages he extracted from his briefcase”

‘The Reader on the 6.27’by Jean-Paul Didier Laurent!

Guylain Vignolles catches the 6.27am train every day to a job he detests.He works at a book pulping factory,destroying books the one thing he holds dear in his life.
At the end of each day, he rescues pages of books from the pulping machine he refers to as ‘th

Such a charming, quirky little book! I read this from cover to cover in the space of an afternoon, and it has left me feeling so warm and fuzzy inside. I love it when books demonstrate a real passion for literature, and this novel does it in spades. The Reader on the 6.27 really grasped the heart of this bookseller.

Güzel bir başlangıcı olan kitap sonlarına doğru klişe bir bitişe yelken açtı. Kağıt geri dönüşüm fabrikasında çalışan ve o güzelim kitapların parçalanmasından nefret eden Guylain ana karakterimiz. Pek de geniş olmayan çevresinde herkes bir şekilde hayattan beklediğini bulamamış, kayıpları, umutsuzlukları olan insanlar. Kitabın güzelliklerinden biri yan karakterlerin hikayelerinin öyle uzun uzun yer kaplamamasına rağmen vurucu olaylarla okuyucuyu etkisi altına alması. Hatta Guylain'in arkadaşı Gu ...more

Siempre me siento un poco culpable cuando puntúo tan alto un libro tan fino (187 páginas de relato con letra muy grande) que cuesta su precio (17 leuros y pico la broma). Pero los libros deben ser considerados por su calidad, por lo que cuentan, y no por su tamaño. Las novelas no se escriben a peso.

Y aún así... no sé cómo expresar por qué lo puntúo tan alto. Es una historia simple, no tiene nada en realidad, es una novela corta sobre un don nadie, un hombre gris que trabaja destruyendo libros, c

Este libro es, ante todo, un homenaje a la literatura, y a los millones de lectores que día tras día se sienten impelidos a rebuscar en sus entrañas. En definitiva, un merecido tributo tanto a los libros como a los que los leen.

Didierlaurent utiliza de forma magistral el recurso de mezclar humor negro y ternura poética. Tiene dos partes bien diferenciadas; la que nos muestra ese odioso trabajo al que está sometido nuestro protagonista (y al que sabrá sacarle partido rescatando del olvido hojas s

A vida de Guylain Vignolles é feita de rotinas. Mas mesmo assim não deixa de ser uma vida peculiar. Todos os dias apanha o comboio para Paris, onde lê, alto e bom som, alguns excertos dos livros que traz consigo. Os outros ocupantes do comboio acham piada a esta particularidade do seu companheiro de viagens, mas não imaginam que o seu trabalho é destruir livros. Sim, Guylain Vignolles trabalha numa empresa de reciclagem de papel, mas o papel dos livros que são publicados e que já não interessam ...more

Antes de dar a minha opinião sobre este livro, preciso de falar sobre a capa. É, seguramente, a capa mais bem conseguida que eu já vi. Para além de bonita, com uma boa escolha de cores, já repararam bem no “comboio”? Está brilhante!
Quanto ao conteúdo, esta não deixou de ser uma leitura sui generis. Acho que o ditado “primeiro estranha-se, depois entranha-se” lhe assenta como uma luva! As situações descritas são algo peculiares, mas a narrativa é tão fluída que não se consegue parar de le

The Reader on the 6.27 is a story of loneliness and regret while at the same time finding itself to be a love story in which our characters long for that wonderful and painful thing that makes their hearts beat a little faster and their eyes widen a little more each day. I really enjoyed the mixture of poetic tone and relatable humour in the book and thought it was a really easy and quick read. I recommend it.

İlginç bir hikayesi daha doğrusu hikaye içinde hikayeleri var. Basit anlatım, klasik son, roman değil novella. Bir başyapıt değil kuşkusuz. Yazarı tanımak için okumanızı öneririm.

A lovely story that seemed to combine aspects of The Red Notebook with Mr Penumbra's 24 Hour Book-store. This is very much a book written entirely for book lovers, and is also quite deliciously French in it's style and scope. Guylain Vignolles is a reader, one who works in a hellish book pulping factory. This job is soul destroying, and he lives for the moment at the end of the day when he can crawl into the belly of the monstrous pulping machine, in order to clean it out. He takes advantage of ...more

When I started this book I thought I was going to love it. A commuter who reads a different passage of a book outloud while in the train. Somebody who saves the others from their real boring journey to work and even from their lives. The description of somebody who is not happy with his lifestyle and finds salvation in literature. A monster that destroys books... I thought it couldn't get much better. But I was wrong. Somehow I thought it was trying to be a kind of Fahrenheit 451... and it got w ...more

Potpuno neobična knjiga sa najobičnijim, svakodnevnim ljudima koji se bore sa dilemama da li da vole posao koji rade, kad već ne mogu da rade posao koji vole, ili da se okrenu sasvim drugim stvarima? Fabrika za recikliranje papira. Potpuno nesvakidašnje, reklo bi se, nebitno (da li?!) radno mesto. Tamo, gde se svakog dana uništi i preradi na tone papira. U ogromnom sekaču-mašini zvanom Cerštor 500. Koji bez problema može da samelje i kosti i udove. Opasno radno mesto. Nakon jedne takve nesreće, ...more

Μου άρεσε πολύ αυτό το βιβλίο. Νομίζω ότι είναι πολύ ιδιαίτερο και γλυκό. Κάποια κομμάτια του σε συγκινούν, άλλα έχουν χιούμορ και κάποια σε κάνουν να νιώθεις αισιοδοξία. Ο πρωταγωνιστής, ο Γκυλαίν, ήταν πολύ συμπαθητικός και γενικά όλοι οι ήρωες ήταν ξεχωριστοί, ο καθένας με τον δικό του τρόπο.
Ένα καλογραμμένο βιβλίο που δεν κουράζει καθόλου.

3.5★

Guylain Vignolles is a an avid reader who, ironically, spends his 7-5 workday pulping books with the machine he loathes so much he can't bring himself to call it by its real name. Instead he calls it The Thing. Guylain leads a quiet life, with few friends and just a goldfish at home to confide in. He calls his mother every Thursday evening and cringingly continues the pretence to her that he works in publishing.

The highlight of his days is the 20 minute commute each morning on the 6.27 train

I hated this book the first time I tried to read it, I DNF-ed it after 50 pages or so because I couldn't get into it at all, the writing and the main character felt unbearable. But I kept postponing giving it away and this week I felt the urge to give it another shot, probably because it had been on my radar for years before I bought it and I really wanted to see where the story would go. This time it was like reading a completely different book. I thought it was very charming, very Amélie-esque ...more

fransızlar hepimizin depresyonlara gark olduğu bu kirli çağda tatliş tatliş romanlar yazıyorlar. insan bitirince suratında tuhaf bir gülümseme kalıyor. pek alışık olmadığımız bir şey.
bu sene galiba bunu hissettiğim üçüncü fransız romanı.
bu kısacık romanda da kötü bir iş kazası bile hayatları mahvetmiyor, berbat bir iş ortamını edebiyat kurtarıyor ve kahramanlarımız rüyalarının kadınına ya da beyaz atlı prense kavuşuyor. daha n’olsun :)

On his daily commute to work, Guylain Vignolles reads from book pages that have survived the paper-recycling machine he tends. Guylain dislikes his co-worker and boss and hates the machine to which he daily feeds books to be pulped.

I am all for finding a way to be slightly anarchist about your job in a sort of positive and creative way that doesn’t prevent actual work productivity or make you tiresome to your colleagues and somehow helps you become a better person. I’m still looking for a way to

Değişik bir konu, keyifli bir anlatım, çok sevdim...
Bir geri dönüşüm fabrikasında kitapları kağıt hamuruna dönüştüren dev bir makinenin, Zerstor 500'ün kullanıcısı Guylain ne işinden, ne yaşamından hoşnut değildir, kitapları yoketmekten vicdan azabı duymaktadır. Her sabah 6.27 trenine biner ve Zerstor'un dişlerinden kurtardığı sayfaları yüksek sesle okuyarak vicdanını biraz rahatlatır. Ve günlerden bir gün her zaman oturduğu koltukta bulduğu USB bellekte yazanlar onun hayatını değiştirecektir.

Skaista novele ar grāmatām, mīlestību, draudzību, dzīves traģēdijām un atklātību par cilvēku ķermeņiem ļoti veiksmīgās proporcijās.

Acho que a grande maioria dos leitores gosta de livros sobre livros, e eu não sou exceção. Tenho lido vários, ao longo dos anos, e é sempre reconfortante perceber que os livros podem influenciar vidas das mais variadas formas, tal como influenciam a minha. O Leitor do Comboio prometia dar uma das muitas respostas à pergunta “De que forma os livros podem mudar uma vida?” e esta questão, presenta na capa, foi o que bastou para captar o meu interesse.

Guylain Vignolles tem uma profissão que detesta:

Дуже рідко, але буває, що я не шкодую, читаючи електронну версію книги.
Такої відвертої нудоти мені не траплялося давно. 😨

Ок, спишу враження на свій не надто читацький настрій у даний момент, та тепер я довго думатиму поки візьмуся за ще один роман автора!

“Les gens n'attendent en général qu'une seule chose de vous: que vous leur renvoyiez l'image de ce qu'ils veulent que vous soyez. Et cette image que je leur proposais, ils n'en voulaient surtout pas. C'était une vue du monde d'en haut, une vue qui n'avait rien à faire ici. Alors s'il y a une leçon que j'ai bien apprise en près de vingt-huit ans de présence sur cette Terre, c'est que l'habit doit faire le moine et peu importe ce que cache la soutane.” 4 likes
