Excerpt from Nobody's Boy: Sans Famille

Was a foundling. But until I was eight years of age I thought I had a mother like other children, for when I cried a woman held me tightly in her arms and rocked me gently until my tears stopped falling. I never got into bed without her coming to kiss me, and when the December winds blew the icy snow against the window panes, she wou

Indiscutabil, "Singur pe lume" rămâne romanul-reper al copilăriei mele de secol XXI (adică a copilăriei mele fără de copilărie). Pentru mine, romanul lui Hector Malot reprezintă o evadare imaginară din lumea fumurie (care tinde să capete contururi negre) în care trăim. Mă gândesc la faptul că un copil n-ar şti să aprecieze adevărata valoare a acestui roman şi de aceea consider că, pentru a lăcrima printre paginile sale, ai nevoie de o anumită vârstă, ai nevoie de sentimentul acela al copilăriei ...more

I think I read this when I was about 9. It was my very first novel. I remember telling my mum I was sick so I could stay home from school and finish it.
Because it's the novel that made me fall in love with reading, it gets 5 stars from me :)

رواية ذات طابع شجى ذلك الطابع المميزة للروايات الفرنسية فى القرن 19
الرواية التى أرتبطت فى ذهنى بكرتون ريمى على الرغم من أختلاف الكرتون
التى تمثله هذه الصورة عن الرواية بشكل كبير

فأنا لم أكن أعلم أن هناك كرتون أخر بنفس الأسم والذى تمثله الصورة الأولى فهو
الأقرب لموضوع هذه الرواية التى تحمل الكثير من المعانى التى نفتقدها الآن فمن منا لا يحلم بصديق بطيبة ووفاء وتواضع ماتيا
ومن منا لم يدرك أن الطيبة والأحتواء والمشاركة لا تأتى دوام إلا من الأناس البسطاء
كل هذا بجانب أستعراض الحالة الأقتصا

Một cuộc hành trình dài.

Mở đầu truyện nói thật là mình hơi thất vọng, mà nguyên nhân chủ yếu vẫn là việc nó không giống với kỳ vọng ban đầu của mình trước khi đọc sách. Cái này cũng chỉ là lý do chủ quan và mình cũng thường xuyên mắc phải chứ không phải do truyện không hay :).

Rémi là một cậu bé ngoan, từ nhỏ đến nay em chỉ biết có má mà thôi, thế rồi năm lên 8 tuổi, nhiều chuyện không vui đột ngột ập đến em. "Người cha" mà em không biết mình có mong đợi không đột ngột xuất hiện, không chỉ

من منا لا يزال يتذكر ريمي تلك الفتاة الجميلة خلقاً وأخلاقاً، ذات الصوت الرائع والحظ البائس، بشعرها الأحمر وجمالها الأخاذ ؟ كل فتاة في تلك الفترة وتحديداً في طفولتها تمنت أن تكون كريمي في جمالها وشخصيتها بالرغم من المعاناة التي مرت بها والصعوبات التي واجهتها.


حسناً ماذا لو اكتشفتم أن ريمي بالرواية الأصلية كان فتى وليس فتاة ؟ هو أمر غير متوقع أبداً خصوصاً لمن تابع المسلسل الكرتوني وعاش أحداثه ولكن هذه هي الحقيقة.


يحكي لنا ريمي في هذه الرواية قصة حياته ومعاناته بعد أن أكتشف أنه لَقيط وأن الأم التي رب

بماذا يفكر الطائر لحظة طيرانه في الأعالي؟ حين يخترق السحاب ويقطع الوديان والجبال: ماذا يرى؟ وبماذا يفكر؟ وما الذي يعتمل في داخله وهو يطير؟ إذا استطاع الكاتب الدخول في وعي طائر، قد يكون بالإمكان كتابة قصة أو رواية اعتماداً على هذه الرؤية الغير مرئية. في جلسة أدبية مع الصديق عدي الحربش، طرح الزميل عدي فكرة لكتابة قصة ، لكن لا يعرف الطريق أو الأساس الذي تحمله القصة. فكرة القصة هي عن وعي طائر لحظة طيرانه. قلت للصديق عدي أنه قد تكون هناك طريقة واحدة لكتابة القصة. وهي طريقة افترضت بأنها بورخيسية مع تط ...more

My mother read this series to us when we were very young. We didn't have a television so our nightly reading sessions were like the best possible TV series. I remember begging and crying for her not to stop! She developed character voices and accents. It was as real as anything.
I think little Remi, orphaned to the circus with his monkey friend really influenced my gypsy lifestyle when I grew older. Reading out loud, try it sometime. It's a very different experience.

This is the wonderfully moving story of an orphan who hopes to one day find his true family. There are many interesting subplots as well about the general condition of orphan children throughout 19th France, very much like Dickens revealed similar mistreatment of youth through his highly critical and scrutinizing enlightenment.
This story is bound to have you shed a few tears. If you ever the opportunity, watch the tv mini-series of the same title.
If a great tale for children, it remains an equal
