J avais rep r Constellation de Adrien Bosc dans la Grande Librairie.J attendais beaucoup de ce livre dont le th me abord et les id es de l auteur ce sujet me donnaient vraiment envie de le lire Pourtant lorsque je l ai referm je n avais pas obtenu ce pourquoi je m tais plong e dans ce livre M me si la plume de l auteur est tr s fluide et que le livre est bien renseign c est ind niable, l auteur s est appliqu dans ses recherches , la fa on dont il a organis son roman est tr s perturbante il n y a pas de relation entre les diff rentes parties, pourtant tr s int ressantes Au bout du compte je n ai pas t happ e par l histoire, trop d cousue pour moi.Je regrette galement que certains personnages les plus connus aient une plus grande importance que d autres qui pour certains ne sont voqu s que bri vement ou seulement par leur simple nom dans la liste des victimes Mais apr s tout, cela est peut tre d au manque d informations leur sujet I picked up a copy of this book because of one the airplane on the front of the book cover I am always fascinated by stories featuring aviation The second reason is because this book was based on true events Living in the US, we do not always know what is happening in other countries This is a short book Even the chapters are short and thus it makes for a quick read Yet at the same time a long read What I mean by this is that I did not feel a connection with any of the people who tragically lost their lives on October 27, 1949 Therefore, reading this book at times felt like a chore While I appreciate Mr Bosc s take on what actually happened on this fatal day, this book feltlike fiction than semi fiction. Moi, j ai aim l essor po tique d Adrien Bosc C est vrai que la plupart de son uvre est r alis e gr ce au processus quelquefois fastidieux de documentation n anmoins, cela ne m a pas emp ch de tirer profit d une sorte de narration l g re, un peu trop faible parfois, j en conviens, mais notamment stellaire, c est dire ce dont j avais besoin en ce moment, et ce qui tait tout fait idoine pour ce livre ayant la nostalgie vague de l inconnu visible Saint Exup ry 3,8 5 Bosc racconta in questo suo Constellation frammenti delle vite dei passeggeri di un volo Air France precipitato nelle Azzorre nel 1949 Un volo piuttosto famoso per aver causato la morte di alcuni personaggi in vista all epoca, casualmente ritrovatesi nello stesso posto al momento sbagliato il pugile Marcel Cerdan che tornava in america dalla sua amante, Edith Piaf , la violinista Ginette Neveu, uno dei direttori del settore commerciale della Disney Bosc ci presenta in questa opera prima il frutto della sua ricerca sulla vita dei passeggeri, fino a raccontarci le circostanze che li hanno portati l , quel 27 Ottobre Ci narra un incrocio di destini e coincidenze, un groviglio di piccole e grandi storie che destinato a lasciare un vivo ricordo nel lettore Il destino predominante,Bosc torna continuamente a questo concetto, i protagonisti delle storie appaiono guidati da un filo invisibile Ho trovato l idea alla base del libro molto intelligente e il racconto di alcune storie particolarmente intenso Ho letto in altri commenti al libro che la critica pi frequentemente mossa a Bosc quella di aver creato un testo frammentario Comprendo la critica, le storie presentate vengono sciorinate senza un preciso o almeno evidente criterio generale, alcune sono puri accenni, ma credo che questo sia dovuto al fatto che non siamo di fronte a un romanzo di fiction , ma al racconto della vita di persone esistite, pi o meno conosciute, su cui sar stato sicuramente difficile rintracciare informazioni dettagliate Devo anche ammettere che nonostante mi sia piaciuto il modo in cui fa procedere la narrazione, alcune di queste storie non mi sembrano particolarmente riuscite nella narrazione o, almeno, non lo sono tutte allo stesso modo Non ho nemmeno amato il modo diretto per me un po semplicistico in cui si parla del destino, anche se capisco che in racconto del genere non si possa chiedere di non fare di tale concetto la base di tutto l impianto narrativo Sempre in altri commenti ho letto che la scrittura viene definita elegante e colta , non so una parola di francese quindi non posso giudicare, in traduzione mi sembrata una scrittura piuttosto semplice, non particolarmente ricercata Il libro l ho letto in un pomeriggio, veloce e avvincente, mi ha per un po inquietato, non forse la miglior scelta per una persona che, come me, non sale sugli aerei fischiettando, per dire, Happy di Pharrell, ecco. In my attempts to readbroadly, I ll often pick up and read something from another country if it s quite short, regardless of the premise of the story That was the case with this award winning French novel, which centers around an Air France flight that crashed in the Azores in 1949, killing all 48 on board Unfortunately, in its English translation, the book is tonally adrift and in blurring the line between fact and fiction never finds solid ground.The author s form is a mixture of pure reportage around what happened and might have happened to lead to this disaster, and recounting the circumstances of who was on board and why Had he crafted 48 short chapters one for each victim it would have been an interesting exercise Instead, he spends proportionallytime on those withdocumentation around their lives most notably the champion boxer Marcel Cerdan, en route to meet hisfamous lover, Edith Piaf, and a renown violinist, Ginette Neveu For me, this reliance on contemporaneous reporting and biographic detail made it hard to read this as a work of fiction.Evenso, the sudden authorial voice appearing deep in the book several times, explaining elements of his research for the book in first person I suppose these could actually be entirely fictitious, but if so, that strikes me as an even lamer postmodern gimmick At the end of the day, the author seems to be using his highly detached prose to be commenting on the vagaries of fate and coincidence but that s about it While I found certain threads of it interesting, and some of the imagery occasionally arresting, there s certainly no story within the pages, and so I d be very reluctant to recommend it to anyone except diehard readers of French fiction in translation.
