  • Albert Cohen 1895 1981 was an author and civil servant, whose Greek Jewish parents emigrated to Marseilles soon after his birth He worked in Geneva through the 1930s, where his mother visited him regularly He emigrated to Bordeaux and then London in 1940 during the German occupation of France He urged his elderly and widowed mother, who was in failing health, to move with him to London, but she preferred to remain in Marseilles Cohen was grief stricken once he learned of her death in 1943 He wro [...]


  • You read a book like this and you can t help but see Uncle Albert talking to you in his solitude, baring his soul, letting you and free writing in such a way as to heal his soul He evidently enjoys here what he is sharing and he is writing for himself, as all the best writing really should be He is not trying to impress you or charm you by appearing so happy because life is not always going to be happy So please don t be put of by his sadness or accuse him of being too depressed because this is [...]


  • One of the best books I ve read in my life The English version is really good Not as good as the French one though Every time I read it, once or twice a year usually, I shed tears Cohen s description of losing your mom is completely true and the words he is using are just as true as the feelings he is expressing You can feel the pain but also enjoy the joyful moments they Cohen and his mom spent together the book is also really interesting from a historical stand point It s a must read for all t [...]


  • Tr s mouvant, ce livre m a accompagn durant mes longs trajets quotidiens pour deux jours Je ne saurais parfaitement exprimer ce qu il a voqu en moi, mais une chose est sure, il vous fera certainement changer la mani re avec laquelle vous vous comportez avec votre m re ou toute personne ch re en g n ral tant qu elle est vivante.



  • This is a really nice, and very sentimental book It reads like a series of writings rather than as one continuous novel The writing is beautiful, simple and expresses the emotions beautifully.From what I can make out, there is no attempt to craft this as a literary work It is a simple outpouring of emotion, love felt, and regret expressed I am not used to expressing my sentiments and emotions, and there are times when the book seems a tad mawkish to me, and Albert kicks himself a bit too much Ho [...]


  • A tous ceux qui trouvent Belle du Seigneur trop indigeste, je conseille de commencer par Le Livre de ma m re On y trouve d j le style caract ristique d Albert Cohen, riche et exub rant, parfois un peu fou, et toujours tr s mouvant, surtout dans ce r cit o il est question de l amour d un fils pour sa m re maintenant morte, et de son ingratitude qui ne lui a pas permis de profiter pleinement du temps qu ils ont eu ensemble Une belle le on de vie qui nous invite ne rien consid rer comme acquis pour [...]


  • Peu int ressant Le c t souvenirs sentimentalisme est assez mignon, mais g ch par les effets de style de l auteur, ses quinze mille r p titions genre criture automatique, mais c est trop, a fait forc et pas du tout authentique Et le personnage de la m re m inspire de la piti plus qu autre chose, c est vraiment l exemple typique de la m re pouse esclave qui est enferm e dans cette position de femme soumise cause de ce que sa religion quelle diff rence entre celle ci ou une autre lui a bourr dans l [...]


  • L amour d une m re est il ternel L auteur voque ses souvenirs, l image attendrissante impr gn e de path tique d une m re d vou e jusqu l adoration, pr te tout pour un fils ingrat abusant de cet amour qu il croyait immortel Ce n est qu apr s la disparition de cet ange gardien timide, soucieux de ne pas encombrer et si na f, qu Albert, vieillissant et r alisant le poids de sa perte, que vient le temps des regrets inutiles mais combien touchants.


  • Vibrant hommage sa m re, je suis d accord, mais le livre en lui m me n a pas grand int r t Il n y pas d histoire, juste de simples souvenirs balanc s au fur et mesure du bouquin de fa on un peu fouillie Je ne peux en revanche rien dire en rapport l criture, que j ai trouv un peu d pass e, mais tr s po tique surtout en sachant que l auteur n a appris le fran ais que lors de son enfance


  • Interesting and original for the first half but I should have taken the very first page as a warning the second half is slow ,painful and totally pathetic You ll have trouble flipping the pages It s moving ,yet exhausting.


  • One of my all times favorites This is an ode to all mothers It s a sad book but not a depressing one Descriptions are lenghty and extremily detailed but they all feel right, you feel they are necessary You enjoy them The wording is simple and innocent but still impressive and touching.


  • Quanto mi piacerebbe poter togliere, come lo sdentato la dentiera che mette in un bicchiere d acqua accanto al letto, togliere il mio cervello dalla sua scatola, togliere il mio cuore troppo pulsante, questo povero fesso che fa troppo bene il suo dovere, togliere il mio cervello e il mio cuore e immergerli, questi due poveri miliardari, in soluzioni rinfrescanti mentre io dormirei come il bambino che non sar mai pi Quanto pochi sono gli umani e come diventa subito deserto il mondo p 90



  • This was written as a series by the author Naturally there are quite a bit of repetition and dramatic in places Though at times I had to turn the pages without going through it line by line, what comes through is his love for his mother This book made me think about my mother, with whom I do get opportunity to spend time and I realised that it is true that one does not understand what a precious little thing she is, many a times As I am growing older, I re live the times spent with her and the t [...]


  • Book of My Mother is a book from a neglectful son to his mother The son, who didn t really think much of his mother, sudenly feel lost and empty after his mother s dead This book is a compilation of Albert Cohen s contemplations of his late mother.I love Albert s choice of language or it was Bella Cohen s translation to be exact It was beautiful and strong Showing a deep regret of a son who didn t spend enough time and energy to love his mother when she was alive.This is a perfect book for every [...]


  • Peu de livres ont connu un succ s aussi constant que Le livre de ma m re Ce livre bouleversant est l vocation d une femme la fois quotidienne et sublime, une m re, aujourd hui morte, qui n a v cu que pour son fils et par son fils Ce livre d un fils est aussi le livre de tous les fils Chacun de nous y reconna tra sa propre m re, sainte sentinelle, courage et bont , chaleur et regard d amour Et tout fils pleurant sa m re disparue y retrouvera les reproches qu il s adresse lui m me lorsqu il pense [...]


  • Ik vond dit boek op de ramsj tafel van de boekenwinkel Als hij de originele prijs was geweest had ik me bekocht gevoeld, maar nu merk ik dat ik toch blij ben dat ik dit boek aan mijn lees ervaring toe kan voegen Het boek is pompeus geschreven, en door het hele boek kan ik een hekel aan de hoofdpersoon niet onderdrukken Walchelijk hoe hij met zijn moeder omgaat, en zijn oude ik vooral verdrietig is omdat hij nu haar idolatie moet missen Gelukkig schemert ook door dat hij beseft hoeveel pijn hij h [...]


  • C est un portrait d une grande tendresse que nous dessine ici Albert Cohen, un portrait de femme, un portrait de m re qui s tablit dans les attentions, les d tails, une mani re d embaumer le quotidien son chelle Une m re qu on regrette, qu on ne veut pas oublier car elle ne nous a jamais oubli Un livre qui marque une certaine culpabilit face la toute bont de cette figure maternelle l amour sans faille C est la fois un loge fun bre qui s ins re dans la tradition du memento mori et une mani re de [...]


  • Un tr s beau livre sur l amour d un fils pour sa m re, son d sarroi et sa tristesse la mort de sa m re, aimante et d vou e La plume d Albert Cohen est toujours remarquablement juste Un vrai plaisir lire dent s ou non, forts ou faibles, jeunes ou vieux, nos m res nous aiment Et plus nous sommes faibles et plus elles nous aiment Amour de nos m res, nul autre pareil.Aucun fils ne sait vraiment que sa m re mourra et tous les fils se f chent et s impatientent contre leurs m res, les fous si t t punis [...]


  • Malgr le fait que l auteur r p te souvent ce qu il a d j dit,il exprime ses sentiments d une fa on touchante.Il r ussit r v iller nos sentiments qui s endorment peut tre et il nous encourage bien pour tre de bons filles et fils pour nos m res qui m ritent tous nos respects.La langue du livre n est pas difficile comprendre ,il vous apprend beaucoup de vocabulaire si votre fran ais ne vient pas de votre naissance.


  • Fils des m res encore vivantes, n oubliez plus que vos m res sont mortelles Cette phrase r sume assez bien ce livre, un livre d amour, des lettres issues de la passion la plus grande que l on puisse avoir celle de l amour nos m res Cohen r ussi mouvoir le lecteur depuis la premi re page avec les souvenirs de son enfance et de cette m re qui a toujours t l pour lui Un livre tendre et motif


  • Un petit chef d oeuvre, tout le monde s entend pour le dire Ce livre offre une rare concentration d amour L amour d un fils pour sa m re, pouss l extr me de la complicit , de la d pendance mutuelle C est d une autre poque, d une autre civilisation en tout cas Chaque phrase est belle et intense, mais sa lecture en continu me donne le vertige Je tourne les pages et je m imagine dans un m langeur, avec des fils de soie Je suis enlac jusqu lassitude J abandonne mi parcours.


  • An extremely well written book, with an interesting perspective A filial love letter, with some very creative moments However, I found it strange It is strange that a grown man would speak about his mother the way he did I mean, I understand that your mother can be one of the greatest loves of your life, but it was a bit to Oedipal for me At times even somewhat disturbing I am glad I read it, but would never read it again, I actually gave the book away.


  • La plus belle histoire d amour, comme avait comment Pagnol.N emp che, Cohen est bien d pass aujourd hui quant aux questions de f minit Surann et st r otyp Il n voque que deux mod les, la sainte m re et son amour et sa bont inconditionnels et la chaudasse l amante br lante de d sir et de plaisir Le style, la po sie et le chant d amour traversent pourtant les ges.


  • Una peque a joya que nos ense a el valor de una madre A veces no le damos la importancia que se mereciera, algo de lo que Albert Cohen es muy consciente Sin duda es lectura obligada, no te quedas como antes, algo se remueve dentro de ti.


  • E un libro troppo triste, non lo consiglierei a nessuno Non mi sembra che Cohen crei una gran bella descrizione di sua madre, anziIl libro sembra un grido senza n capo n coda Se davvero qualcuno pensasse ci che scritto in questo testo, le dovrebbe scrivere, ma poi tenerle per s.


  • Een beetje te bloemerig geschreven voor mij,maar de moeder komt er erg sympathiek uit te voorschijn Het levensverhaal van de moeder zelf zou misschien interessanter geweest zijn dan de schrijver s spijt betuigingen.
