龍應台的文字,「橫眉冷對千夫指」時,寒氣逼人,如刀光劍影。「俯首甘為孺子牛」時,卻溫柔婉轉彷彿微風吹過麥田。從純真喜悅的《孩子你慢慢來》到坦率得近乎「痛楚」的《親愛的安德烈》,龍應台的寫作境界逐漸轉往人生的深沉。

  《目送》的七十四篇散文,寫父親的逝、母親的老、兒子的離、朋友的牽掛、兄弟的攜手共行,寫失敗和脆弱、失落和放手,寫纏綿不捨和絕然的虛無。她寫盡了幽微,如燭光冷照山壁。

  這是一本生死筆記,深邃,憂傷,美麗。

Life is a journey full of unexpected events which is worth a ride.

This is a book consists of 74 proses. Most of them were about life, love, friendship, relationship, and the author's experiences. I like those precious lessons of life because they were truly touching and thought-provoking, making me retrospect my daily life and the way I interact with people or family.

這本書令我明白到父母親的想法,有些東西我和作者的孩子都做了,而可能令父母不開心。現在我明白了應該怎樣與父母相處。我希望我日後可以令父母不用再為我擔心。

單談作品。 [文字] 比喻多巧思,但行文囉嗦。用字雅俗夾雜,好用大詞,有濫調(素顏前行 等); 寫自己也愛用「你」似乎是她的特色,很有意思,讀來直接完成了讀者的自我代入,不過主動招徠的親切和引人反抗的壓迫感互相拔河,偶爾也會突兀; 句式口語化,易拖沓; 文章結構也「口語化」,雖然常有前後呼應的設計,但底盤還是隨性的,有想到哪寫到哪的意味,不過更應該説是作者砍斷連續劇的位置非常肆意,導致每一集結構奇怪節奏飄忽,因爲前後幾篇往往是連著的。 以上見仁見智。 要我説,排比易寫,剋制卻難。有時候她一個個比方打下去,我感覺被冒犯😂。 [內容] 情與理都大致實在,但講述姿態令我分心,時有隔靴搔癢之感。一些展示生活方式與境界的文字在我看來是閑筆,且我感受到的龍的境界與她描寫、嚮往的境界尚有差距。這種不匹配(不信服)導致閱讀體驗的煩躁。
I - 3星 ; II - 3星 ; III - 4.5星

當誇則誇:多數篇章都能摘出喜歡的隻言片語來,有幾篇甚至幾乎全文摘錄(不過大段摘的幾篇多半都因爲踩到以上某條不合心意的地方,反而沒有進入下面這個列表)。無論我怎麽挑刺,我知道自己在做人、做事、寫字上都離她差得遠,說龍

Short stories about parents and family. No much rhetoric, no much exaggeration. All about the ordinary stories everyone would encounter more or less throughout the life.

The book was a quite sad as it was about the author’s dad leaving this world, her mom getting older and older, her sons leaving her to study. I liked the book as it was touching and I learnt many things from this book, the book reminded me to spend more time with my family and friends and also cherish the time with them. Also, it also taught me to be independent, as there are always something that I need to deal it by myself.

作者在書中寫道父親的死亡、母親的衰老和失智;寫對父母的憐惜和體恤,寫兄弟攜手共行,兒子的離別,朋友的牽挂;寫自己的失敗和脆弱,失落和放手,以及一個人的走路、賞樹、觀鳥、拍照、生活等。從牽着孩子幼小的手,到青春後期孩子與自己漸行漸遠的背影;從陪着年邁母親如帶着女兒一般,思及自己也曾是父母眼前一去不返的背影,作者身邊的人一個個離開她。正如作者所說:「我慢慢地、慢慢地了解到,所謂父女母子一場,只不過意味着,你和他的緣分就是今生今世不斷地在目送他的背影漸行漸遠。你站在小路的這一端,看着他逐漸消失在小路轉彎的地方,而且,他用背影默默地告訴你,不用追。」我認為這句不只是總括了整本書,而且還讓讀者有很深的體會。

Short essays that inspire thoughts on life, parenting and travel. Some of them contain Chinese poems which really require some basic Chinese literature knowledge that I lack, hence I found those passages a bit more difficult to comprehend.

关于亲情的第一、三部分很细腻、动人,力荐。不太习惯第二人称的叙事方式。

目送这本书记述了作者多次目送,例如目送他的儿子到美国当交换生。在作者儿子第一天上小学的时候,他对他的父母还有着满满的依恋。可儿子开始长大了,到机场要离开父母时,早已不是当初的小男孩。在这一刻,作者感受到了落寞,也觉得自己和儿子的感情渐渐疏远。而儿子更是认为母亲对自己的问候以及关心只会给他带来麻烦,心里也感觉不耐烦。我认为人不要等到自己失去亲人的时候才懂得珍惜。

像书里说的一样,我最喜欢的也是《相信》这篇,《普通人》和《雪白的布》这两篇也很喜欢。全本书语言都是温柔委婉的,但第三部分写父母亲缘,还是克制不住地难过。集子名叫目送,不仅是目送人,也是目送一个时代吧。

读《目送》時,我正难得的回国休假在父母身边。那天,我和爸爸在医院候诊室等候看病,我忍不住朗诵了那篇《目送》给爸爸听。父母与子女,是上辈子欠下的情债吗?龙应台以母亲的角度,写自己看儿子一点儿一点儿长大。文笔敦实而感人,正如无尽如细水长流的母爱,无处不在。

這本書主要是說作者對生活中自己身邊的人的感情,在〈目送〉這一章裏,作者以上目送一詞去表達那種看著而且不捨的感,作者以自己和兒子或父親的事情作為例子,帶出了自己的立場,意識到相遇意味著今生要不斷的目送並表達了自己對情緣的看法。

又暖又寒的一章章文字。有的不是那么喜欢但有的真的凉风一样深入骨里。想知道慢慢老去的感觉和心境,是否能沉淀,到自己50,60,70。余生究竟应用什么样的态度面对,维持,优雅从容,过好一生的时间。

龍應台在書中寫的是她個人的情感。寫父親的因病逝世、母親罹患阿茲海默症、兒子的長大,親情漸行漸遠 , 寫失敗和脆弱、失落和放手。親情關係將會因隨著時間流走,彼此的距離會愈隔愈遠。令我明白到,我們要學懂在失去前要珍惜,為彼此留下一個最美好的記憶。

"A Long Gaze", a book with 68 essays, about our life, our family, our country, and ourselves.

It's still the most important book for me and my favorite, regardless of languages. I first read it when I was in senior high. I was young. Those days I read it again and again, and all I knew at that time is the beautiful language. And it seems that the articles are really different from those selected in our textbook. Even those days, I gave this book as a present to the most important people for me.

连着看了三本龙应台的书,《孩子你慢慢来》《亲爱的安德烈》《目送》。可以说很喜欢孩子你慢慢来,亲爱的安德烈一般般。专门把口碑最好的目送留到最后,可能这不是一个很好的决定,看到第三本,已经对龙应台的文字语言有一点厌倦,导致没有像看第一本时惊艳。
即便如此,在对安德烈失望过后,打开目送的第一部份时还是能被温暖如春的亲情所打动。但读第二部分时,因为是一些寻常琐事且与我的生活没有共鸣,所以觉得很无聊,甚至怀疑了一下为什么评分这么高。第三部分,更多的是在讲离别。目送时间的流逝,父亲的逝、母亲的老、儿子的离、朋友的牵挂、兄弟的携手共行。
看完书关上kindle,才感受到读完这本书后心里所有的触动。即使是中间的生活琐事也很温暖,就好像雨天邻居奶奶在棚子下拉着你,给你剥着莲蓬,讲她一生的故事。在一句一句话中,在一行一行的文字中,经历别人的一生。
独自出生,独自死亡,与亲人朋友在漫漫人生路上结伴同行。免不了分离,终归是要目送我们爱的人的背影渐渐远去。我们能做的是坚定的独自走完一生。
不必追着遗憾,不必追着后悔,不必追着不舍,你尽可能的抓住每一个不必追的时光,把最好的在每个可以拥有的当下释放,日子或许会更好一点吧。

是年纪越大越 emotional 还是怎样。最近看书看电影都看得眼泪哗哗。买这本书之前只知道它「很温暖」,我跟自己说:请你看的时候有点出息。结果拿到手翻开第一章看到第一句「我慢慢地、慢慢地了解到,所谓父女母子一场,只不过意味着,你和他的缘分就是今生今世不断地在目送他的背影渐行渐远。」靠。眼泪又流下来。// 2017年12月2日开始读时写下前面那段话。之后再也没读下去。一直放着。这次进Belize山里,住处只有大厅有网,房间没网,简直与世隔绝。于是2019年11月23日下午开始从头读起,24日晚上读完整本书。仍然是熟悉的龙应台风格,只不过更喜欢写亲情的第一章和第四章,第二三章过于松散。不过二三章有几篇印象特别深刻的:卡夫卡、海伦,我村,都很好看。看她笔下十年前的「我村」与现在的局势相比,不胜唏嘘。

The author has very good penmanship, it's pretty nice to read as well.
With only one problem, it's very hard to bring any conclusion after reading.
And you wouldn't really read her work again because contents are after all not relevant to each other, it's very emotional.

I should not comment too much since I only glance through the book.

收录了74篇生活类的散文。第一次开始读这本书已经是7个月前,回家探望病重的爷爷,2天后,爷爷去世,永远离开了我和我的家人。最后时候没有陪伴在他的身边,成为了我此生最大的遗憾之一。从那天以后,我停止了阅读这本书,害怕自己敏感脆弱的情绪被她的文字一次次唤起。直到离开爸爸妈妈和表姐来英国读书前,都没有再翻开。今天,被无数的课件、毫无头绪的论文和忐忑不安的期中测试包围到快要窒息的时候,我突然想起了这本书,也许唤起另一种情感我的内心会安定一些。蜷缩在房间的角落几个小时,看完了最后一篇。这几行字,我想我今生也不会忘记:

他心中不舍、他心中留恋、他想触摸、想拥抱、想流泪、想爱…你告诉自己:注视他,注视他,注视他的离去,因为你要记得他此生此世最后的容貌。

至亲的爱是毋庸置疑的。是伟大的。人们往往却把父母亲的爱护当成理所当然,直到受到时间束缚时才感到惋惜惜就太迟了。
丛书名的字面上能猜得出,这本书主要讲的是离别的沧桑,分开的苦乐。龍應台很巧妙地运用三代人的经历琐事来带出‘我’的瑕疵,‘我’爱子爱过头的不好意思。读到一半,有点感觉莫名其妙,不知为何突然提起看似和故事内容无关的中国历史但到最后,我能理解该内容的关联。
这是一本较深的中文文学作品,富有意思的一本书!值得一读!
