Pierre and Luce

Romain Rolland

Book Overview: 

Pierre and Luce were an unlikely young pair who found themselves in the chaos of Paris during the war; Pierre, the shy, recently conscripted pacifist, and Luce, the free spirited artist in training, and both confused about the things going on around them. Why were these war birds flying overhead? Why these warning sirens, and occasional bombs exploding in the distance? Why did the government leaders, who didn't even know one another, hate and destroy so much? Why did these two delicate young adults find each other now? This story takes place between January 30 and Good Friday, May 29, 1918.

Book Excerpt: 
. . .the day at the present period will be a short one: it is necessary to hurry up.

The heart of this young fellow was in a hurry all the greater because it was so much behindhand. Great cities which from a distance appear like the smoking solfataras of sensuality really harbor fresh souls and ingenuous bodies. How many young men and young girls there are who respect love and keep their senses virgin up to the marriage day! Even in the refined circles where mental curiosity is precociously excited, what singular ignorances conceal themselves under the free talk of some young worldly girl or of some student who knows everything and understands nothing! In the heart of Paris there are provinces most na. . . Read More

Přesně jedna z těch knížek, o kterých nám se zápalem vyprávěla moje milovaná (ne, to není ironie :)) češtinářka, jedna z těch mnoha, které bychom si měli přečíst, a taky knížka, jejíž vyprávění děje bylo doprovázeno salvami smíchu od mých fakt - omezených? - spolužáků...Dva lidi, co se do sebe za...more

I tried it. I read it. Because I have to because of exams.
I expect more. Everybody told me that Rolland is really cool and the story is beautiful. Yeah, I think it is, but there was something in the air that I didn't like.
Maybe it is because of Remarque, whose precious novel is really cool and y...more

Krátká novela Petr a Lucie se právem řadí ke klasikám. Kniha se mi velmi líbila. Jemný a smutný příběh, který byl již od začátku předurčen k tragédii. Romain ve své knize upřímně popisuje nelehký život civilistů během války. jejich myšlenky, pocity a obavy z toho, že se nedožijí dalšího dne. Jemn...more

Je to velice slabá knížka, ale má své kouzlo. Je to krásný příběh o lásce, která se zrodila v nejhorší době, které lidstvo zažilo, ale ne jednou ale dvakrát. Opravdu mě zaskočilo, když přišel konec. Tak znenadání a rychle. Nepočítala jsem, že to skončí tak rychle.
Mám ráda příběhy o lásce a hlavně...more

آن چه او را بیش از رنج بشری آزار میداد بلاهت بشر بود......
رنج کشیدن مهم نیست،مردن مهم نیست اگر معنایی در آن باشد!

Najhoršia posledná veta ever.

این دومین کتاب عاشقانه ای بود که خوندم و شاید هم بهترینش . این کتاب درباره دو نوجوون فرانسوی هست که داستان هم مربوط میشه به جنگ جهانی دوم و حمله آلمان به فرانسه . این دو جوون اهل پاریس هستند و زندگی سختی رو میگذرونن ولی عاشق همند . دیوانه وار ... فوق العاده بود . و پایان غم انگیزی داشت
