      Despite 1 several years spent in Indiana, 2 an unstinted enjoyment of meat, and 3 the fact that I at one time had a mustache it was the 80 s , I am not a Ron Swanson replica To prove this point, I read a book set in Europe France, no less And it didn t even have one of those page turning plots to drive it.What it did have was a plenitude of French themes Food, especially the fine dining variety, was foremost among them Art was another Cultural divides of the type pitting aristocrats against repu [...]

      This book was recommended to me by Jamie, and it was a perfect rec, thank you so much, lady.Translated from French to English, Hunting and Gathering is a character rather than plot driven, slice of life portrait Somewhere within these pages, the main character finds herself at a bookstore, pouring over a collection of the French cartoonist Sempe s drawings as I best know for his work in The New Yorker As I read further, I began to realize There it is This book is like a Sempe drawing It is grace [...]

      I was worried that once I finished this book I would be filled with sadness over leaving these characters I was sad to put it down, but the overall experience was so satisfying that I would highly recommend this book to others Hunting and Gathering made me miss having conversations with my old roommate from France The characters manner of speaking is so different from Americans and refreshing I was surprised to see American references like Shrek and Angelina Jolie here and there, but they only a [...]

      Este libro ha sido justo el tipo de lectura que necesitaba en este momento, una historia muy bonita, real, como la vida misma, con unos personajes con una vida nada f cil, admirables Es lo primero que leo de esta autora, pero no ser lo ltimo porque me ha gustado mucho su forma de escribir.

    5. Madeline on said:

      This will sound weird, but it s true some books don t need plots Hunting and Gathering is a perfect example of a character driven novel Nothing really monumental or dramatic happens, and instead the story is supported entirely by the four main characters They are Camille, a cleaning lady or cleaning operative who lives in a tiny apartment by herself and doesn t eat Philibert, an aristocrat lacking social skills who lives in Camille s building his roommate Franck, a temperamental but talented che [...]

      Maravilloso Una historia llena de iron a y sentido del humor, de personajes geniales con una vida dif cil Realmente recomendable

    7. Jamie on said:

      This book This book, this book, this book Sigh It is lyrical in that way that only books translated from French can be I rarely underline or highlight while reading fiction, but this book gave my pen a work out It was just lovely The characters were complex and well developed and sweet They were just so sweet It wasn t perfect, but it was just the thing It was flawed, but still one of the best I ll read this year The biggest flaw for me was probably Philou s character I don t like that he faded [...]

      J essaie de trouver le mot juste mais je n y arrive pas le charme de ce livre est ineffable Le retour la simplicit narrative, peut tre Les quatre personnages si vivantes bien que faits des croquis c est pas au hasard que Camille dessine Le je ne sais quoi du tout Elle parle de la vieillesse et de l amour, de l amiti et de la solitude et impressionne sans tomber en m lodrame, bien qu elle ne se serve d ironie non plus La vie, c est tout.

    9. Laini on said:

      Translated from the French I loved this novel about a group of isolated people who find in each other an odd kind of family Highly recommended

    10. El on said:

      I m not great at reading contemporary novels for some reason I think in a lot of ways I expect too much out of them, especially when I compare them to so many of their predecessors totally unfair of me, I know, but that s how I roll I usually see so much room for improvement, or had this been tweaked just a bit s, that I wind up wondering what everyone makes such a fuss about.I don t wonder as much with this book It s charming It s heartbreaking in parts It actually punched me in the heart a few [...]

      4 Estrellitas Antes de nada me gustar a decir que ste libro no es el tipo de literatura que suelo leer, y quiz s, si no me hubiesen regalado ste libro, ni lo habr a le do Verg enza la m a, porque me lo regalaron hace tres a os, y a n no lo hab a cogido Por fin le he encontrado un hueco, y su lectura me ha dejado muy satisfecha.Estamos ante una novela de corte sentimental, con cierto romanticismo, pero no, no es novela rom ntica propiamente dicha Es un libro sobre cuatro protagonistas, cuatro per [...]

      It s just possible that I couldn t put this book down because I m into avoidance tactics at the moment avoiding the study I need to do for my 4 exams coming up in 2 weeks time , but, nevertheless, I couldn t put it down I just loved these poor, sad people and their wonderful specialities and their struggling to find some normal type of existence The way Gavalda brings them together is very clever, and the way she takes the flaws in their characters and weaves in a realisation about friendship an [...]

      Ten a este libro desde hace dos a os y nunca me decid a a leerlo mal hecho Es muy bonito Las dos primeras partes son magn ficas, porque no entiendes la relaci n entre los cuatro protagonistas del libro y las p ginas vuelan entre las dudas de qu le ha pasado por qu est as que tienen que ver las churras con merinas esta ltima pregunta parafraseando a Franck Camille me ha encantado, una chica bohemia calcadita a c mo me imagino yo a una parisina Me gusta mucho c mo escucha a los que les rodea para [...]

      I loved this book It was translated from French, but was so beautifully written the translation was transparent to me The characters were a motley assortment of wounded souls brought together to heal one another A real gem I was astounded by her descriptions of the world through Camille s artistic eyes and the ability to make you feel as though you were in the scene She was able to make each character whole You could picture the way they appeared to the world, but also the inner beauty and talen [...]

    15. ellen on said:

      This is one of the best fiction books I ve read in a long time the emotions captured in this novel are superb I got so caught up in this book that I felt a huge let down when it was over The weaving of the characters lives together speaks to some of the universal struggles of human existence, family, history, loneliness, connection, love in a very real and effortless way Simply beautiful.

    16. Negin on said:

      It was an okay read and like a beach read sweet, fun, and romantic Towards the end, it simply moved far too slowly for me I keep hearing how the movie is far better I don t think that I ll be able to see that anytime soon All in all, this wasn t as good as I had hoped it would be Maybe I just wasn t in the right mood One of my favorite quotes Our certainties never really hold water One day you feel like dying and the next you realize all you had to do was go down a few stairs to find the light [...]

    17. Bethany on said:

      I don t mind books that are essentially character studies The things is, to enjoy them I have to like the characters Ok, I did like 3 out of 4 of the main characters I loved, loved, loved Philibert What can I say I have a weakness for stuttering history buffs, apparently I liked Paulette and Camille most of the time but I just couldn t care about Franck He was really a jerk His foul mouth got on my nerves too The first word in every sentence doesn t have to be an expletive, Franck dear And since [...]

      Not so good as expected Or I am not in the right mood to enjoy it.A movie was made based on this book Ensemble chest tout 2007 , with Audrey Tautou, Guillaume Canet, Laurent Stocker.

    19. Dolors on said:

      Absolutely adorable book and a good film adaptation playing Audrey Tautou for those who enjoy cinema as well

    20. abcdefg on said:

      I really enjoyed this book until about two thirds of the way into it when it started to get predictable and I could easily picture it being made into a romantic comedy film which it was made into in France, unfortunately Don t get me wrong, I m not a hater of romance or comedy or even romantic comedies I just don t like it when they re predictable because it s formulaic and not very challenging to me as a story.It starts off with Camille, who I really did sympathize with as this waif genius arti [...]

    21. Josefine on said:

      I started reading this with a certain amount of apprehension due to it s overwhelming popularity anything widely and universally acclaimed usually makes me suspicious and because of the obvious feel good connotations Despite this the first few chapters had me hooked, and I started to think that the book might actually be as wonderful as everyone claims The characters are nuanced and flawed enough to feel believable the language issues that inevitably mar all translated work are evident here as w [...]

    22. Stephanie on said:

      This book will break your heart and then mend it and repeat the cycle All I wanted to do was read it all day I didn t want to put it down This is the tale of four downtrodden individuals who are thrown together by fate or random chance, whatever you want to call it, and the unlikely friendships that develop keeping the rags with the napkins, one might say.This book makes me want to move to Paris and find three quirky roommates of my own.There are many contenders, but my favorite quote from this [...]

    23. Kirstine on said:

      This book was recommended to me by a friend She really loves it and spoke of it very warmly, so when she brought it back for me to borrow and read I couldn t say no It is a very sweet story of four very different, but equally lost lives intertwining and impacting each other There s also a bit of romance, but it s the good kind In fact, this book is a wonderful look into the kinds of relationships that exist in the world friendship, family, romance, be it what it may It starts out really bleak, w [...]

      4,5 estrellas para esta historia de soledad y encuentros, con m s fuerza de la que parece en un principio Me ha parecido una novela positiva, con la b squeda de uno mismo de fondo, y la familia como eje central de todo Si hay alguien que cree en ti, t acabar s creyendo tambi n en ti Aunque tiene un toque dram tico, es una historia de personajes, de buenas acciones, de la necesidad de ser queridos y de las historias que cada uno de nosotros lleva consigo.Opini n completa millibrosenmibibliotecas
