    1. As the dark season is upon me here in the north, I start revisiting sunny locations, like the beautiful setting of rural Provence in Jean de Florette.I bought this book in Arles, in a perfect bookshop/coffee place/music store/cinema combination (in my next life I will work there!), and started reading it that same night, while still on vacation in Provence. The language, the characters, the drama, the hardship, all of it is so deeply connected to the hilly, dry and beautiful countryside it descr [...]


    2. I've been carrying this book around for years (along with its sequel) and finally allowed myself to indulge in its dreaminess. The language is rich and evocative of time and place and Pagnol is a master of character and caricature as well as of dialogue. Ostensibly, this should "fire on all cylinders"; unfortunately for me, it fell a little short of its mark. I longed for a much more layered and nuanced story behind Jean's ultimate failure; instead I found a man who willingly and blithely ignore [...]


    3. You won't find any fancy stuff in a Marcel Pagnol story. He'll simply draw you into the place where he wants you taken, makes his characters alive before your very eyes, and then leads you to believe that like you he also does not know what will happen next or how the whole thing will end. When the tale finally did end here, there was an uncontrollable feeling of outrage. A great injustice has been done! And no one would doubt here that there'll be a much-awaited sequel.Marcel Pagnol was not onl [...]


    4. Definitely a nice, well told story. Two main characters: the impressive and tragic figure of Jean, a citydweller who thinks he can create paradise on earth out of books, and he almost seems to succeed in this; and the hesitant Ugolin who, driven by greed, drives Jean to his misfortune, but at the same time suffers for what he's doing. In other words: Pagnol offers us the themes of the impotence of modernism, and the battle between greed and conscience. Beautifully told, with an eye for the idyll [...]



    5. 'Nos jugements sont toujours trop hâtifs et les âmes sont vraiment séparées quand l'amour ne les rapproche pas. Je m'étais trompé sur le compte de cet homme.'Na het overlijden van nukkige Pique Bouffigue komt Jean Cadoret - bijnaam: Jean de Florette - zijn intrek nemen in hoeve 'des Romarins'. De man is gebocheld en de inwoners van het plaatselijke dorpje zijn bijzonder wantrouwig en kritisch ten aanzien van deze rechtmatige erfgenaam. Ze zwijgen als vermoord over de bron die achter de hoe [...]


    6. Ce livre vous fait prendre une pause bienvenue, surtout si vous avez passé une bonne partie de votre enfance dans les monts et des villages du Var où se déroule le drame. On peut comprendre pourquoi le vallon fertile attire tant ces paysans, mais on ne peut pas leur pardonner le double jeu qu'ils mènent


    7. Oh dear, I give everything five stars! (because I only finish books I love).I read this in French, with a dictionary, and slowing down like that so deepened my enjoyment. Watched the film at the end as a treat.


    8. Wow, over a year to finish this one. I lost my first copy when I moved apartments and just recently acquired a replacement. So heartachingly good. Makes me want to move to Boulder, Utah to raise goats in the hills.


    9. Une histoire simple dans sa compréhension et son écriture — dans le bon sens du terme — mais une puissante fable par son message et sa critique de la mesquinerie. Cette histoire, qui s'inscrit dans un contexte local, celui dans lequel l'auteur lui-même a grandi, peut aisément s'appliquer à n'importe quel autre. Tout y est : les relations humaines dans une société, des personnages représentatifs de cette dite-société, qui amènent le lecteur tantôt à rire, tantôt à verser une la [...]


    10. my summer is not complete without having read Jean de Florette and Manon des sources, so I've read both countless times both in French and in German and still love them to pieces. vivid descriptions and colorful characters evoke pictures in my mind and I can smell Provence and feel its sun burning. this is perfect literature.


    11. One of my favorite French authors. Pagnol's writing is so clear you really get a sense of 'provence' through his eyes. An unforgetable story.




    12. Une belle histoire, plein d'émotion et d'humour. Pagnol est un maître à décrire ses personnages; leurs motivations et leurs faiblesses. Hautement recommandé.


    13. Jedna z mých nejoblíbenějších knih, je to krásná, klidná a velice poučná kniha z nádherného prostředí francouzského Provence.


    14. L'écriture de Marcel Pagnol est authentique dans le sens où il relate le quotidien de ses personnages sans fioritures. Il réussit à les rendre vivants, à connecter le lecteur à chacun d'eux. Dans cette histoire, le fait de commencer en présentant Ugolin, Papet et leur projet nous lie à ces deux personnages, ce qui crée une dualité entre l'envie qu'ils y parviennent et le rejet de leurs méthodes. On retrouve finalement 3 grands types de personnes, Jean qui est victime de son optimiste [...]


    15. Jean de Florette by Marcel Pagnol and adapted for the big screenAnother version of this note and thoughts on other books are available at:- youtube/playlist?listThis is a first for me.So far, the notes posted here have been about books, with subjects ranging from psychology to fiction.For some years now, I have added to the original interests comments on plays, mostly adapted for The BBC or The Romanian National Radio.And this note refers mostly to a film.It is one of the best I have ever seen, [...]


    16. While Jean tries to make it thru the drought, he never seems to learn that his neighbors who fake friendship and concern are secretly hoping he will fail. A fair enough "To Build a Fire" - type plot that is practically ruined by an artificial climax. Warning: Very depressing.


    17. This book was a lot better than I expected!! It was definitely not my first pick in class, it looked really boring and the only reason I took it is because I didn't want to take too long picking. When I first started reading it, I was very annoyed and unmotivated because they introduced so many characters at once and the setting was kind of hard to adjust to, but once the story got going it was very intriguing and enjoyable. I ended up loving the randoms antics that Jean and his family would go [...]


    18. Jean de Florette is a novelized version of the first half of Manon des Sources a film that the author had made ten years earlier in 1952. Just like the movie, the novel is a stylistic masterpiece. Nothing is redundant. Every paragraph plays a vital part in the work. The plot is very tightly stitched together and the actions of all the characters are perfectly coherent.Of course, one should read for the pleasure not to admire the writer's impeccable style. Jean de Florette is indeed a pleasure of [...]


    19. This is a novel that revolves around a tiny Provencal village and a farmer determined to wrestle a living out of a dilapidated farm, a farm that holds much promise. It is a novel that features lifestyles both simplistic and harsh, as drought and set-backs continue to thwart the farmer. We feel great sympathy for the farmer's plight and his charming family and we crave justice for Jean. This is the first of a series of stories, The Water of the Hills, and reading this novel will inspire you to re [...]


    20. I love Marcel Pagnol and his books! Their simplicity and sometimes their innocence are absolutely arresting. Although I enjoyed his Souvenirs d'enfance more, this was also pretty good. The only reason I'm not giving it four stars is that I thought there were parts where it dragged a bit, but I doubt any other author could ever keep me interested in a story about trying to find water! I will read Manon des sources for sure!


    21. Meant to read this years ago. Typically Gallic gloom, and a pleasantly unsympathetic depiction of the antagonists who, apparently get their (deserved) comeuppance in Manon des Sources. Surprisingly quick to read and a definite homage to the peasant rural way of life.


    22. This is a book to which I return often. I enjoy Pagnol, and this is my favourite of him. The characters and the detail are perfect. The cruel and tragic actions driven by great and envylessons for all.


    23. Un chef-d'œuvre de la littérature française! Une grande œuvre d'un grand écrivain peu ou pas assez reconnu



    24. I first read this book (in French)when I was eighteen. I am not sure if I understood it all since I am getting much more out of the reading now. The saga is perfect in its scope and subject.


    25. I loved this story-reached me on so many different levels. Thanks Elaine for suggesting it and Julie for buying it for me!
