    1 thought on “Dolce Agonia

    1. Ένα συγκλονιστικό βιβλίο που διαβάζεται απνευστί! Η Χιούστον γράφει γρήγορα και άναρχα, χρησιμοποιώντας μεγάλες προτάσεις και συχνά καταργώντας ακόμα και συντακτικούς κανόνες, κάτι που αναδεικνύει το φουριόζικο και εκρηκτικό της ύφος. Περνά συνεχώς από την πρωτοπρόσωπη [...]

    2. Well now, this book has it all: alcoholism, drug abuse, eating disorders, depression, adultery, cancer, Alzheimer's disease, stroke, rape, incest, murder, suicide, cruelty to animals, the Chernobyl disaster, and even a plane crash. In case you find yourself hoping that life just might get better for these characters, God interjects about every other chapter to tell you how one of them will die. It's a great way to escapeif you're sick of feeling contented with life.

    3. Une belle surprise! Un roman avec lequel je ne savais pas trop à quoi m'attendre et qui m'a agréablement surpris. Malgré une intrigue quasi inexistante, c'est un des ces livres que j'appel des récits de vie, ce livre nous fait découvrir un groupe de personnes et nous fait voyager et vivre toute une gamme d'émotions à travers leurs souvenirs et ce qu'ils les attents. Un style d'écriture très intéressant, assez poétique par moment, des scènes vraies et touchantes malgrés les clichés [...]

    4. Nancy Huston propose d’aborder toutes les facettes de l’existence. Parmi elles, l’amour, la maternité, la mort et la vieillesse sont abordées avec pertinence et invite à la réflexion. Ainsi, Dolce agonia réunit pour Thanksgiving, des êtres de tous âges (du bébé au vieillard), de tous métiers et de toutes origines. S’alternent dans ce roman, dialogues, pensées intérieures des personnages et apports de la romancière qui va jusqu’à décrire ce que sera la mort de chacune de [...]

    5. Loved this book! I found the alternating chapters in the voice of the "creator of the universe" very intriguing. Somehow then when the story resumed I read it with a sense of "I know something you don't know". It made me look at each individual character as a living breathing human being and I was very sympathetic to each of them.

    6. This book was amazing in every way. The only problem is, a book should not be able to make you feel the weight of your own mortality at age 20. Morbid, and yet the ending makes me cry with joy every time I read it.

    7. A very entertaining look at the future of 12 friends united for a Thanksgiving dinnerrough the eyes of God and the death he will give them.Throughout, the party members reflect on their lives and the people who inhabited these lives.While sometimes turning a little whiney, there is a certain depth to these characters. Particularly interesting was the newest member of the group, Chloé. The fact that her past is unknown to all makes her a little mysterious.There are a few reservations for me. It [...]

    8. An in-depth investigation of mid-life anxiety, Dolce Agonia intertwines banal interactions in the huis clos setting of a snowed-in Thanksgiving with the thoughts, memories and dreams of each of the protagonists. Highly vivid and disturbing memories of past events, including incest, the death of a child, Chernobyl, and rape and necrophilia in the Vietnam War bring shattering complexities to the characters essentially making small talk around a turkey. Confusing at times in its non-linearity, this [...]

    9. I like books and films that are set with a limited focus. I find it makes them work harder, which can be a great thing for the story.This novel is set throughout one dinner party. Alternate chapters are narrated by an omniscient god who shows us the death of each character.I found the witty parts of the story genuinely funny (a rarity for me!) and the moving and thought-provoking parts also achieved their aim.All in all it was better that I expected it to be. Quite compulsive reading, and skillf [...]

    10. Un bon roman. Cela faisait longtemps que je voulais lire du Nancy Huston, il se trouve qu'une lushette bien intentionnée m'a swapé celui-là. C'était bien, ça fonctionne bien, il y a quelques rebondissements et une brochette de personnages attachants et énervants à la fois. Ce qui m'a plu aussi c'est que je trouve que c'est un roman plutôt accessible à ceux qui d'habitude sont rebutés par la littérature. Ca m'a donné envie de lire d'autres romans de Nancy Huston.

    11. I liked another book by this author and thought I'd give this one a try. I don't know if it was one of her first but it certainly read that way. Sort of a better written version of a Palanuik. All sorts of sick little lives being led. It came off as silly.cially the god parts that were thrown in

    12. J'ai beaucoup aimé la forme de ce roman, avec les parenthèses: le "ronron mental" des personnages. J'ai aussi beaucoup apprécié le découpage des chapitres ainsi que le narrateur Dieu qui accélère la vie au début de ceux-ci. Ça m'a fait penser au dernier épisode de Six Feet Under. Bien sûr, le sujet du livre est grave, mais termine sur une note lumineuse. À lire.

    13. Idée originale du narrateur Dieu. J'ai aimé mais le roman ne m'a pas laissé une grande trace de réflexion. Comme si tout ce qui était écrit était du déjà vu à part les pages écrites par «Dieu».3/5

    14. I loved the unusual style of this book which switches between chapters narrated by God and chapters narrated by one of the main characters. I couldn't wait to find out what kind of end awaited everyone.

    15. C'est un beau livre, mais il contient sans doute trop de scènes horribles (même si ce ne sont que des souvenirs dans l'histoire) pour que je puisse dire l'avoir vraiment aimé. Je crois qu'il faut éviter de lire trop de Nancy Huston à la suite.

    16. J'ai bien aimé la structure narrative hors du commun de ce récit: un souper d'Action de grâce où 13 convives sont invités. En parallèle à la soirée qui s'étire, on apprendra comment décèderont chacun des protagonistes.

    17. Αγνό μίσος για τα βιβλία που δίνουν φωνή στο Θεό και τον κάνουν χαρακτήρα, ποσω μάλλον για τα βιβλία που τον βάζουν να λέει και μαλακιες.

    18. L'auteure n'a pas son pareil pour inventer des personnages, leur donner une épaisseur, les rendre tangibles mais bon sang, à ne pas lire si vous êtes déprimé !

    19. Les dialogues sont bien écrits, les reflexions de chacun intéressantes. En revanche, leurs névroses sont vastes, beaucoup trop vastes, viol, inceste, accident d'avion, cancer, mort d'enfants, etc

    20. Un peu trop basé sur le style littéraire. On s'y perd un peu. On mélange les personnages

    21. Un peu long, un peu confus, toujours tres (trop?) intense mais on se prend a vouloir connaitre les personnages.
