L'Élégance du hérisson

تلجأ هذه الرواية إلى حيلة أدبية تكاد تكون كلاسيكية حيث تقسم نفسها إلى ثلاث نساء بطلات من مراحل عمرية مختلفة تحتوى الرواية على ك This is another moment when I wonder what is wrong with me Everyone in France recommends this book The premise is original enough that I was hoping the book would be a real find within the same super high end Parisian apartment building live 2 misfits the 54 year old concierge who reads Kant and Tolstoi in secret and a 12 year old girl with abnormally high I and suicidal tendencies The first half of the book is an excuse for the author s long academic digressions on Kant phenomenology William Ockham oh and Tolstoi Nothing is really going on When finally a semblance of plot surfaces it is so banal that you want to cry So much for this latest ode to French high culture The only redeeming point about the book for me is that it made me want to re read Tolstoi

ثرة من الإحالات الأدبية والفلسفية والتاريخية والموسيقية والفنية كما تلمس موضوعات مثل الوعى الطبقى والصراعات النفسيةحظيت الر That so many people love this book makes me fear for the future of literature It is one of the most pretentious banal novels I ve ever read In fact novel is too good a word for its bloggishly self indulgent smugly insipid meanderings Actually most blogs are much interesting than this book The two main characters the concierge Renee and the young girl Paloma are hypocritical snobs who accuse others of snobbery This intolerance is forgiveable in a child perhaps but not in a 53 year old concierge Renee whines about her lot constantly and not in an amusing way she s incredibly tendentious and judgemental She vaunts her superior intelligence is very self involved and yet fancies herself compassionateThe world view of the book is conservative Renee worships the accepted canons of Western art music and thinking She herself epitomizes the upper middle class women she regards with such scorn She is one of the most obnoxious characters I ve come across in a book The author expects the reader to sympathize with Renee but she is boring and self pitying among other faults Both Renee and Paloma the girl think themselves unconventional yet they are extremely ordinary in their views They are humorless this is NOT a funny book and mean they mock everyone they know and regard themselves as superior beings All of their thinking is cliched and their stale opinions are expressed with narcissistic melodrama and hyperbole in elevated tones and stilted diction Actually the concierge and the 12 year old girl sound pretty much alike The characterization is that thin The book is full of stereotypes Asia and Asians are characterized as mysterious and inscrutable It makes France or French culture look bad The book has no tension but it does have some contrived action as well as a ludicrous red herring The prose is riddled with sentimentality and cuteness and the awkward plot serves as a skeleton for a host of trite sophomoric ideas A few basic philosophical problems are rehashed in reductive ways and the narrators imagine that they invented these ancient conundrums Oh and the writing is terrible affected and clumsy Forget le mot juste Words are misused throughout In the last twenty pages the concierge weeps uite often and I guess the reader is supposed to sob along but it s bathetic anything but moving The only emotions I felt were disgust and anger With so many wonderful books to read why are so many people reading and liking this drivel
