Vraiment aimé ce livre. Pas une lecture difficile, mais certainement bien écrite avec un point de vue fascinant.

lecture facile, tourneur de pages, suspense, romance, identification avec un personnage .... j'adore les nicholas, j'ai adoré celui-ci.

Je me suis vraiment intéressé à ce livre, mais je l'ai aussi trouvé très verbeux. Il y avait des moments où je sautais juste beaucoup de texte pour passer à l'action. J'ai vraiment aimé l'histoire, je souhaite juste qu'elle ne se soit pas perdue en la racontant. Donc, autant que je voulais donner à ce livre un 4, je vais devoir lui donner un 3.

I just finished reading this book with my 10th grade English students. It is always the class favorite, so I save it for the end of the year. I'm glad I have the occasion to reread it periodically--immersing myself in the details of a soldier's life seems like the least I can do these days. But the real reason I love this book is because it is, at its heart, about storytelling, about why we tell stories and, in O'Brien's words, how "stories can save us." Parts of this book could be my English teacher manifesto. It reminds me of an essay by Barbara Kingsolver--"Jabberwocky"--that I love so much: "We have all heard plenty about each other's troubles, but evidently it's not enough to be told, it has to be lived. And art is so very nearly the same as life...[A novelist can] carve tragedy...into something small and dense and real enough to fit through the door, get in my heart, and explode. This is how a novel can be more true than a newspaper."

interesting story but in the end I was so upset about the situation in New Orleans, the process I hope will never encounter! Must read!
