Summary Chéri AUTHOR Colette ë PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Colette å 5 Summary Free download Chéri AUTHOR Colette Veva risparmiato le catastrofi fascinose e i nobili dolori» – ma glieli aveva risparmiati per concentrarli tutti in una sola storia che la colpisce uando ha l’età «in cui è lecito concedersi ualche piccolo piacere» Nel triangolo amoroso apparirà ui il rivale più temibile il Tempo nel suo ruolo di corruttore dei corpi L’autunnale opulenza di Léa e l’acerbo. This book is so wonderfully written The dialogue is too realistic it s painful to read the conversations between Ch ri and L a and between Ch ri and Edm e Colette s treatment of relationships is excellent She builds the characters and their interactions with each other uickly This book is less than two hundred pages yet I feel like I ve known Charlotte L a Ch ri and Edm e I understand their world why and how they are the way they are with each other The last ten pages are the best for me and the most heart wrenching When two people who love each other have been away from each other for months the first feeling is relief to be back together joy and pleasure But then reality settles in How have they changed or not changed over the course of three months Sometimes just by being away from each other out of context they change because the world around them has changed What I love most about this book is that it s less a story and a portrait of a relationship To see the evolution of Ch ri and L a s relationship is beautiful and sad The thing I love next most that s awkward is the tone of the book I m not fluent in French so I didn t understand every single word I read Yet I didn t want to keep stopping to look up words or phrases I wanted to read and absorb the story as I could with my knowledge of French and I was really able to understand a lot through the tone of Colette s writing It s nostalgic and deeply sad yet also lovely and bittersweet That really allowed me to understand the characters and their connections to each other without understanding every word I found the dialogue in this book much moving than the narrative Colette s descriptions are lovely and vivid but when the characters speak to each other her writing really comes alive I found myself reading aloud to practice my pronunciation with feeling really getting into the emotions behind the words The arguments are passionate and display the chemistry between the characters in a way that not all writers can master I m glad I read this book in French There s something very expressive about an Ah la la Eh bien hein Ta ta ta that just couldn t translate into English Or a switch in the use of tu versus vous There s a lot of shrugging of Les paules that only the French can turn into another mode of self expression effective than Les paroles But I can imagine that the tone and the nuances of the relationships would translate Overall I recommend this book very highly Of Water and the Spirit: Ritual, Magic and Initiation in the Life of an African Shaman (Compass) yet also lovely and bittersweet That really allowed me to understand the characters and their connections to each other without understanding every word I found the dialogue in this book much moving than the narrative Colette s descriptions are lovely and vivid but when the characters speak to each other her writing really comes alive I found myself reading aloud to practice my pronunciation with feeling really getting into the emotions behind the words The arguments are passionate and display the chemistry between the characters in a way that not all writers can master I m glad I read this book in French There s something very expressive about an Ah la la Eh bien hein Ta ta ta that just couldn t translate into English Or a switch in the use of tu versus vous There s a lot of shrugging of Les paules that only the French can turn into another mode of self expression effective than Les paroles But I can imagine that the tone and the nuances of the relationships would translate Overall I recommend this book very highly

Reading Colette s short novel Ch ri felt like munching on a box of fancy Belgian truffles and in this case washed down with a bottle of fine vintage French wine everything is all very French and all very luxurious On it s first publication in 1920 both Marcel Proust and Andr Gide deemed it as a masterpiece I wouldn t go as far as to say that but was pleasantly surprised how pleasurable a read it was I love how the female lead character L a de Lonval is described as a magnificent and aging courtesan facing the end of her sexual career erexcuse me the poor girl hasn t even hit 50 give her a break and to make matters worse she is madly in love with the exuisitely handsome and spoilt brat Ch ri who I would describe at times as an arrogant sniveling little toad The fact Ch ri is half L a s age doesn t stop the flowers blossoming in love for the pair the dashing playboy would first lead her up the garden path and advantageously marry someone else seeing a sombre L a reluctantly deciding their relationship must end Without Ch ri L a does experience a new wanted freedom but both lovers would finally realise just how deeply they are connected in ways than oneSeven years prior L a a courtesan in the Parisian demi monde before the first world war agreed to take Ch ri to help supervise his amorous education their lavish time spent together is awash with servants boudoirs silks and satins pearls and sapphires warm bodies and moonlight It s as if all the house fronts of Paris were thrown away leaving an open view of men and women talking dressing bathing brooding and loving Colette s sensual prose with a twist of melancholy was as rich and charming as it s characters worked so well without the need to be overly sexual and never falls into the trap of being a generic sentimental romance novel in the mold of say Mills Boon Love is deeply entangled with maternal love in this book that for a modern reader may surprise with wit and wisdom Colette is ultimately concerned with the human heart and the transgressive emotions it might shelter I read this looking at it from L a s perspective a wonderfully drawn and pragmatic business woman filled with kindness Mixed with a tenderness and passion for Ch ri but tingled with a sad realization that she feels age is not on her side any She felt much pain on discovering Ch ri s marriage plans although his overly protective mother plays a pivotal role in his lifeSumptuous and beautifully written with a warm human touch Colette at it s core simply writes of love and aging and tells us how love sometimes binds and keeps a woman from breathing freely or how it may shape and support her and help her to be beautiful It s not that I disliked Monsieur Ch ri through all his lavish living he was still driven by human emotions just like anyone elseI can t hold that against him He still deserved a smack in the chops thoughFor me it s hovering somewhere between 35 and 4 stars It is worthy of a four Writing of romance is not always easy and it did tick most of the right boxes

Summary Chéri AUTHOR Colette ë PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Colette å 5 Summary Free download Chéri AUTHOR Colette Smalto di Chéri vengono spiati in ogni attimo da un occhio a cui nulla sfugge Così uesta vicenda scandita dalle scene di una magistrale commedia demi mondaine diventa la cronaca di una catastrofe dove il sentimento è delicatamente avvolto nella fisiologia e brama di sprofondare «in uell’abisso da cui l’a risale pallido taciturno e pieno del rimpianto della morte. This is like a 25 stars but as always I round down I read this book to practice my French and if you are reading the book for the same reasons Colette is both a good and bad choice Good because she uses a lot of different words I now know a bunch of ways to describe how people lean on things lol but bad because some of her words are so idiosyncratic I guess that some of them weren t in dictionaries I looked at Her French was also kind of difficult for me at times that I had to look up a translation then again my French is rusty Anyway this is a frustrating book to rate much less review because throughout much of the book I absolutely hated it but Colette also addressed rather masterfully I have to admit much of what I had hated about it in the last twenty pages or so of the novel my copy was 222 pages btw So about the first 200 pages of the novel is maybe a 1 15 stars the5 added for the writing which is lovely at times and then another star for the ending alone Ch ri is a love story and love stories are only as strong as the romances they describe Therefore if I find the romance unconvincing or weak or whatever then the whole story falls apart for me This is exactly the case with this book I never got the sense they truly loved each other in the way that Colette wanted me to feel about them and so that made the story much slow going because the entire time I was thinking BUT WHY TELL ME WHY I was very caps locks y throughout much of the bookThe romance was incredibly creepy to me because Colette establishes that L a has known Ch ri since he was a baby Ch ri calls her by a pet name he gave her when he was a child and there is a very disturbing sentence in the book that view spoiler now he called her that in the throes of his pleasure like ew hide spoiler
