Ancusi Braue Satie and Picasso amongst his closest friends Jules et Jim an autobiographical novel was originally published in France in and was followed by Deux Anglaises et le Continent which Truffaut also made into a filmA delightful account of people sharing and unsharing each other Times Literary Suppleme. I liked it The language was simple short and to the pointapparently it's actually a 'social revolution' masuarading under pages full of lustThe word 'love' is thrown around uite a lot In my eyes Jules starts out as a pompous idiot but then matures into a man while the other two Kate Jim remain blissfully ignorant children completely prey to their wills and wantsUnlike a lot of books that I read this one was easy for me to rate I liked this book I didn't think it was amazing at all and I don't understand how someone could but I suppose we all have our own interpretationsIt's worth pointing out that in Britain Henri Pierre Roché is pretty unknownI see a few Italian reviews here though maybe it's studied in their schoolsthis like many other books I'll be reading in the coming weeks is part of my 'EuroFiction' moduleGood uick readWhy not give a chance see what you think

Jules et JimAnd so begins the moving and tender story of three people in love with each other and with life Francois Truffaut Jules et Kindle whose film of the novel is one of cinema's greatest achievments has called Jules et Jim a perfect hymn to loveHenri Pierre Roch devoted his life to the arts numbering Duchamp Br. I haven't seen the famous film of this novel but I know people that I have and they have all sung its praises When I saw this book in the library I wasn't even aware the film was based on a novel before I couldn't resist snapping it up It was an easy read but the subject matter wasn't as lighthearted as I'd assumed from reading the blurb on the backAnything to do with bohemianism Paris café culture and free spirits tends to lure me in where books are concerned but I was surprised to find that this was not the crux of the story in Jules et Jim Roché's novel is somewhat autobiographical which is very interesting so because it was his debut novel and was written in his seventies He based the character Jim on himself and Jules on a friend in his life and what characters they both were All the women in their lives they shared eually and without hatred and distrust which is a concept I can't even begin to understand I think I was surprised at this attitude to life and love because of the time period it was set in around 1907 and onwards There was me thinking that back in the early twentieth century people were very uptight when it came to love sex and everything in betweenKate is the character that truly tests Jules and Jim She is a firecracker a woman akin to the two men in terms of her view and approach to life However I found her a very difficult character to warm to Although not without her charms Kate was in short an extremely selfish woman brash and uick to act whilst not always making the right decisions She was easily angered throughout even when as a reader I felt she shouldn't have been and she was not shy of hurting people to get her own back on them particularly Jules and later JimWhat saddened me a little with this novel and hence the slightly lower rating was that although the title is Jules et Jim Jules wasn't in very much of the book at all It should have been Jules Jim et Kate or even Jim et Kate although I suppose without the complete alliteration it doesn't have uite the same ring to it I found myself missing Jules as a character although he seemed a bit silly at the start and longing to be rid of Jim and his ridiculous feelings for Kate for just a few chaptersI fully intend on watching the film as I'd love to see how this simple story was transferred to the screen The writing in the novel is so simple and direct that it's almost like just reading an everyday diary although there are moments of literary beauty and I imagine that it would lend itself uite well to a film whilst allowing room for development in certain areas For those who have seen the film and enjoyed it I'd suggest giving the book a go maybe you'll get something extra from it who knows
