    One thought on “Jules et Jim

    1. Ian "Marvin" Graye

      Menage a QuatreAt the heart of this novel is a menage a trois between two men (Jules and Jim) and various successive women (Lucie and Kate).It's told in the third person, but I have a sneaking suspicion that Jules (view spoiler)[(no, Jim, no, Jules, no, Jim) (hide spoiler)] is the implied author. We get a fair amount of insight into each of the participants, which differentiates the novel from the likes of Henry Miller's "Tropic of Cancer" (which still occurs very much inside one or other of the [...]

      Jules (short, German, philosophical) and Jim (tall, French, romantic) meet in 1907 and immediately become best friends. People wonder if they're gay, but they're not: they just really like each other. They always seem to end up dating the same women, and live a wild and complicated life. After a while, they both fall for beautiful German Kathe, who's the original psycho bitch from hell. She hangs out with each of them in turn, has children with them, falls into fits of jealous rage and abandons [...]

      Amore in fricassea2 è il numero di volte che ho letto il libro.∞ è il numero di volte che ho visto e adorato il film.Con questi presupposti, adesso vorrei tanto che voi mi spieghiate la panzana che spesso leggo nelle recensioni altrui, sul fatto che dovrebbe trattarsi di una storia d’amore. No davvero! Spiegatemelo, perché io proprio non ci arrivo. O meglio, da qualche parte arrivo, ma è tutto un altro approdo.Partiamo dal principio. Jules e Jim, come i più informati di voi sapranno, è [...]

      Avevo il timer per lo sbuffo: almeno uno ogni cinque pagine. Io di solito ho sempre attivo quel sensore che alle prime pagine di un libro ti fa capire se ti piacerà o no. Il mio fiuto infallibile non si è smentito. Jules e Jim è stata un'altra rottura di balle, anzi, addirittura ho provato quella voglia violenta di sbattere il libro al muro. Però non potevo, è della biblioteca. Mannaggia.Non c'è un singolo personaggio che mi sia stato simpatico, e qui c'è da fare un discorsone.Partiamo co [...]

      Jules et Jim is one of the most famous celluloid love stories of all time. It is the story of a love triangle between two Germans (Jules and Katie) and a Frenchman (Jim) in early 20th century Europe, it is the story of a threesome who sought to “redefine love” and the heartache which is caused by this plan. It is, however, a little known fact that the story is partially based on actual events and is based in the criminally unknown novel of the same name, by Henri-Pierre Roche. The novel is o [...]

      My interest to read "Jules et Jim" was peaked after seeing Truffaut's film adaptation of the novel, a cult-classic made up of memorable moments unravelling at an awkward pace. Not quite sure of what to make of the film, my only thought about the work (the core of the work -- the novel that inspired it) was that it must have more to it than what meets the eye. The book lived up to this expectation. The awkward pace is all there; a series of simple, precise sentences that present themselves betwee [...]

    7. Marianna

      Ci ho pensato, e alla fine il responso è stato quattro stelle e per un unico motivo, aver già visto il capolavoro di Truffaut. Cosa dire di questo romanzo splendido se non che assomiglia ad un fiume, alla Senna? Imperdibile.

    8. Vanessa

      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 back.Anything to do with bohemianism, Paris, café culture and free spirits tends to lure me in where books are concerned, but I was surprised t [...]

    9. El

      Jules and Jim become friends in Paris and share much of their life together - particularly their women. It's a story of Bohemian Paris in the early part of the 20th-century, plenty of love (er, lust) and cigarettes and alcohol and free will.Kate, a German woman, enters the picture, especially striking Jules' fancy. He initially asks Jim not to make any advances towards her, but ultimately Kate turns to Jim for the desire she is lacking with Jules. There is very little conflict surrounding this a [...]

    10. Paul Secor

      I'm rating this on memory. Read it years ago because I loved Truffaut's film. I enjoyed the book a lot then, but I should give it another reading.

    11. Stephen

      I liked it. The language was simple, short and to the point.arently it's actually a 'social revolution' masquarading under pages full of lust.The word 'love' is thrown around quite 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 wants.Unlike 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 [...]

    12. Simona

      Lui, lei, l'altro. Jules, Kathe, Jim. Potrebbe essere riassunto in questo modo questo romanzo, ma in realtà è molto di più e se lo liquidassi in poche, semplici parole sarebbe un torto al suo autore. Non è il classico triangolo d'amore, in cui due amici, Jules e Jim, appunto, si innamorano della stessa donna, ovvero Kathe, che "aveva il sorriso della statua dell'isola". No, questa è una storia di amicizia, di due amici scrittori di cui non si sa nulla delle loro opere, ma molto delle loro d [...]

      Cheguei até 'Jules e Jim' como quase todos chegamos - pelo filme. Numa bonita edição da Relógio d'Água, em promoção na Feira do Livro, que por ter dado origem à obra cinematográfica de Truffaut desperta uma enorme curiosidade, conheci o mítico triângulo amoroso e a estranha amizade de Jim e Jules - com Kathe, sempre, pelo meio.emleiturasmarginais/

    14. Elisa

      Nonostante il libro e i capitoli siano molto brevi e lo stile semplice, ho fatto molto fatica a concludere la lettura di questo libro. Riconosco la novità del tema e dello stile, ma proprio per le caratteristiche di quest'ultimo, scarno e documentaristico, esso sarebbe dovuto essere supportato, a mio parere, da una trama più coinvolgente e più ricca di fatti, mentre la prima parte si limita ad essere una scarna elencazione delle donne che Jules e Jim condividono. La seconda metà diventa più [...]

    15. Sonia

      Chiedo perdono al mondo per la mia ignoranza. Chiedo perdono a Truffaut e Roche. Chiedo perdono perchè non conoscendo nulla della trama, ho sempre creduto che jules e jim fossero una lei e un lui.aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa scusassero tutti!!!! mi sono vergognata emortificata alla lettura delle prime righeNon so che dire del libro, forse avrei preferito di gran lunga il film, che ovviamente mi ripropongo di vedere, ma i personaggi sono così lontani dal mio modo di vedere la vita che se il romanzo f [...]

      The story of Jules and Jim and Catherine was turned into one of Francois Truffaut's most beloved movies. Its big, messy plot is set in Europe, during and after the first World War. A shy writer, Jules, becomes friends with Jim. They have various adventures with young women until they meet Catherine. Catherine and Jules fall in love and get married, but Jules is always there: more outspoken, and not shy in revealing his affections for Catherine. During the war, the two friends fight on opposite s [...]

      Az első harmada élvezetes, a második és a harmadik harmada borzalmas, de azért nagyon érdekelt a végkifejlet, úgyhogy továbbolvastam és a végén a csattanó elég jó.

    19. Meghana

      Jules, Jim and Kathe are three friends who lead simultaneous lives. Jules and Kathe marry, divorce then re-marry. Jim and Kate are involved in an on-and-off relationship. Jim has been involved with a young woman, Gilberte, for years. Jules and Kathe have two daughters.Jules is so in love with Kathe that he forgives her numerous love affairs. Kathe is a beautiful and stylish, but also self-centered, woman. (view spoiler)[Kathe dies as she lived, literally driving Jim and herself off a bridge and [...]

      Piacevolmente irritante.Un ritmo come diunti da sviluppare: A fa questo. B pensa che abbia fatto bene. C se ne ride.Poi però l’investigazione dei personaggi e lo sviluppo dei loro caratteri è arte pura.

    21. Jeffrey

      The sparing, simple prose of Jules et Jim, spilled across the pages in repetitive, subject-heavy sentences, is at first hard not to appreciate. It is an old man’s tale; the sentences feel like fossilized memories excavated from long-filled diaries, a sure medium of sagacity. Henri-Pierre Roche published the book, his first novel, in 1953, by then a septuagenarian. The work received very little critical attention and would only come to light after being found and promoted several years later by [...]

      Very much,on a par with the famous film,which i have watched countless timres over the yearsWill no doubt read this novel again soon if I get he chance and watch the film again tonight

    23. Georgia Meadows

      'One and one make three' This was one of those books which (shamelessly) attracted me by its cover, particularly the 'archaic smile' Kate bore dressed in male clothing, followed by her lovers. After reading the blurb I thought, 'how odd, exploring a polyamorous relationship in the early 1900's' odd it was indeed.The characterisation was beautiful. Their flaws, their insecurities, their emotions were described and depicted with such honesty. Jim and Jules are like the dapper George and Lenny, ins [...]

    24. Livinginthecastle

      There was a recent newspaper review of the third film of the Before trilogy, Before Midnight, which tried to figure out why we find that particular couple so fascinating and it concluded it was because they talked to each other. They had great, sweeping conversations about anything and everything; sparring with and confiding in each other, being the ultimate spiritual best friends and soul mates writ large on the silver screen. I was expecting that with Jules et Jim, but what I got was three peo [...]

    25. Elena T.

      Il film che nel 1961 il cineasta francese Francois Truffaut trasse da questo romanzo del parigino Henri-Pierre Roché è diventato un vero cult-movie, con protagonista la deliziosa Jeanne Moureau.Ma ancor prima di essere un film, "Jules e Jim" è un bellissimo, poetico, libro che racconta dell'amore triangolare che lo stesso autore aveva sperimentato durante gli anni della Prima Guerra Mondiale a Parigi. Jules e Jim, amici di sempre, ed il delicato amore verso l'irrequieta Kathe – rappresentaz [...]

    26. Joan

      This is the book from which François Truffaut made his iconic film. It's the story of two friends, Jules and Jim, who both love Kate, who marries Jules, divorces him to marry Jim, but doesn't, and goes back to Jules, but continues her affair with Jim, not to mention other men. She's basically a selfish, self-centered woman, and it's hard to see why they love her. One can understand, perhaps the initial attraction, but these relationships span the period from 1907 until well into the '30s, when [...]

      Caso raro,dico sì al film e no al libro.Dio santo,mi era stato prestato e quindi volevo sforzarmi di finirlo anche solo per riconoscenza,ma dopo mesi che stava sul mio comodino abbandonato a sè stesso l'ho restituito al legittimo proprietario barattandolo con 'Colazione da Tiffany'.Ho sentito molti lamentarsi dei personaggi e sì,Jules è una mammoletta che te la raccomando,Kathe è un'ulcera,Jim potrebbe ancora salvarsi ma alla fine si perde pure lui per strada. Ma il punto non è questo,io n [...]

    28. De

      It's a whirlwind of a love story for these three Europeans. Set in an era where most of Europe was living wild and free, they came to know each other very well, to the point where the men (Jules and Jim), are able to share the devotion of Kate. Maybe I just couldn't accept the complicated outcomes they dealt to one another every other time to an ethical degree (or maybe, a re-read coz I got a bit lost halfway through, and had to break my careful grasp of the characters especially Kate - she's a [...]

    29. Geraldine

      I was deeply moved by the novel even though it was written in an unvarnished autobiographical style. As surprising as life, "Jules et Jim" is a recollection of memories stitched together by variant storylines as told by each character of a ménage à trois (Jules, Jim, and Kate).Kate's character is perhaps the most arresting personality that is disturbing at the same time; her unpredictable nature renders her an invulnerable force to be reckoned with, but one that leaves those she captivates ree [...]

    30. Megan

      A strange book. I had a hard time relating to the fact that it is set early in the 20th century, since it feels like it's set in the Sixties. Roche gives exceedingly little detail, yet I felt like I was well acquainted with the characters almost straight away. There isn't much dialogue, but the tone of conversations is easily imagined.Kate is as exciting a character as any, but she is so selfish, she feels unreal. She'd have been a reality tv star if she were written for 2011. Everything she doe [...]
