A lot of very, very good ones, too. Sure, there might be some nostalgia involved in this feeling, but the fact remains that he has set the bar very, very high. The cabin is visited during holidays, but the children and Augustine long for the fresh air and beautiful vistas every week.
It is also a brutal reversal: one minute, the Pagnol family is celebrating, and the next, he pulls the rug out of under you with a devastating few pages about grief.

Pagnol loved his mother very, very deeply, and the entire book is an amazing homage to a wonderful, delicate woman, who was beloved by her family and by everyone she met. An incredibly moving book about childhood, growing up, family and friendship. View all 3 comments. My favorite passage describes the death of the main character's best friend Lili: "En , dans une noire foret du Nord, une balle en plein front avait tranche sa jeune vie, et il etait tombe sous la pluie, sur des touffes de plantes froides dont il ne savait pas les noms.
Lili who earlier in the narrative, wanders the hills, the sun on his face, with an intimate knowledge of every rock, plant, animal and weather pattern, falls in a dark of the unknown. Devastating, and beautiful. View 1 comment. Jan 01, Joselito Honestly and Brilliantly rated it really liked it. The second volume of Marcel Pagnol's childhood memoirs. Ah, what a poignant Chapter 37! It hit me like a mild thunderbolt and made me look back starting from the first page of "La Gloire de mon pere" up to just before this wicked chapter of just 13 short paragraphs.
How did it feel reading this? Maybe that is what it would feel like being suddenly kicked towards the future of about 30 years hence with absolutely no recollection of what happened during the interregnum. I was reminded of another e The second volume of Marcel Pagnol's childhood memoirs.

Apr 29, Vanessa Couchman rated it really liked it. I have just re-read the first two volumes in Marcel Pagnol's memoirs of his childhood in Provence. These two volumes are perhaps tinged with the rosy hue of nostalgia, but they are nonetheless a snapshot of what life was like in that era. Pagnol's father and his uncle, l'oncle Jules, come over strongly as characters. P I have just re-read the first two volumes in Marcel Pagnol's memoirs of his childhood in Provence.
Pagnol's gradual awakening to the fact that adults are not the logical beings we assume they are when we are young, is also portrayed in a masterly fashion. The latter is really a series of fragments published posthumously. I can also recommend Pagnol's novels Jean de Florette and Manon des Sources, which were made into excellent films in the mids. I prefer to read them in the original French, but there's a good translation, published as a single volume, The Water of the Hills.

The first French book I've ever read in full! I'm ever so proud of myself. This book was a simpler version than the original book, being one of the "easy reads" series. For me, this was perfect. My French is not so good and having these easy reads is actually really helpful. I do think I've learned a lot, but for the book review, that's beside the point. This is the childhood story of Marcel, who meets a new friend on holiday, Lili, and talks about the hunts and their adventures. But holidays com The first French book I've ever read in full!
But holidays come to an end and Marcel does not want to leave.. I was actually very taken in with this part of the book, I found the children mostly delightful and, maybe it was the easy reads edition, there was just such loveliness to the text that I couldn't help but love it. The edition is adorned with explanations and drawings of difficult words and some drawings to describe scenes.
As an easy read, it is a very good book for someone studying French. And I checked Wikipedia, and it seems they haven't left that much of the story out! So yes, I was quite pleased with this book.

Ook in het schooljaar trekt de vrolijke familie naar de villa in de "Garigues" Marcel ontmoet zijn grote vriend Lili - prachtig hoe deze tedere vriendschap hier wordt beschreven!
Samen beleven zij wilde avonturen en jagen zij op vogels in de natuur. Bijzonder spannend is het moment dat ze 's nachts wegtrekken Ook het verhaal van het kanaal dat langs kastelen loopt is geestig. Met dit verhaal voel je je ineens op vakantie!

Ik verlang nu al naar de andere delen. Aug 11, Mellejoliemome rated it it was amazing. Feb 20, Stephen Durrant rated it it was amazing. But their mutual love of roaming about the hills setting traps for various birds and small game unites them. It is a wonderful reminder, if we need one, of how successfully and naturally children can negotiate social differences of all types and find friendship with those of radically different backgrounds.
Fortunately, Joseph is capable of opening his heart to others, particularly his more grounded wife, and that turns him into a totally lovable and unforgettable character. Pagnol is a great writer with a wonderful sense of humor, but he is lucid enough to know that tragedy so often surrounds and too soon disrupts the worlds of joy and freedom we so easily construct as children. To be read and savored. Apr 01, Martha MacLaren rated it really liked it. Heart-warming and nostalgic autobiographical tales from the author's childhood.
The child's perspective was refreshing and sometimes funny. It also means the language isn't too hard - a good book for French learners to read in the original. Sep 29, Alexkidd rated it it was amazing. Excellente suite de la quadrilogie de Marcel Pagnol. Bleme, tremblante, et pour jamais inconsolable, elle ne savait pas qu'elle etait chez son fils. Summer vacations spent in the forests of Provence, filled with hunts, Lili, birds, stories from the Land and kind faces gathered around a meal. A nostalgic account like no other, a tribute to a mother and a beautiful closing.
A last paragraph that remains, to this day, a favorite of mine in litterature. This book is simply perfect. It's poignant, touching and had me in tears at the end. Pagnol describes ordinary people leading an ordinary life but picks out the best bits that make it special. As a result, you identify with the characters and are so emotionally involved when something happens to them. But don't let all that fool you.

This book is a gorgeous wee escape t This book is simply perfect. This is now one of my all time favourites. Plein de nostalgie. Qu'est-ce que vous pensez du concept de bilangue? Je le regrette. Il y a deux sortes de perte : il y a la perte qui vous hante et la perte que vous oubliez, l'oubli de la perte Le terrible, c'est l'oubli de la perte. Mais vous avez l'ombre de ce que vous avez perdu. Je suis sur une double perte. Dans ce dernier roman, il n'y a plus seulement la nostalgie de la langue perdue.
Par elle, la langue maternelle m'exhibait ses crocs, inscrivait en moi une fatale amertume. C'est aux autres de me le dire. Il y a donc ce rapport aux langues, mais aussi ce marquage sur le corps Donc comment rendre compte de la violence? Je ne parle pas des commentaires, je ne parle pas de l'explication, je parle du sang.
Comment fait le peintre? Comment en rendre compte? Pourquoi c'est lui et pourquoi ce n'est pas moi? Et pourquoi je ne rentrerais pas?
