  2. Joselito Honestly and Brilliantly says:
    Why would I give five stars to a book I did not enjoy, did not like, felt nothing special about and came very close to not finishing it Because late in my life I had come to realize this a translation can create and it can destroy That the act of translating a literary work is not a neutral and mechanical act but a truly creative one A bad translation can mangle a work beyond recognition a good translation as GR s Cynthia Nine attests vis a vis Coelho s regurgitations is capable of turning out s [...]

  4. Tom says:
    The novel concerns the communist upraising in Shanghai in 1927 The book works on several different levels On one level it is an action novel featuring the siege, by communist and European insurgents, of a police station in Shanghai, political assassinations, and an arms hijacking On a larger, political level, it chronicles the machinations of Russia, the Kuomintang, European industrialists and bankers, and finally the nascent Communist party of China as they decide the fate of the insurgency an [...]

  5. Marcus says:
    A brilliant brilliant book that spoke to me of commitment, fidelity and belief, and the bond that are forged in shared struggles These aspects are greatly magnified by placing the key characters on the losing side, thus hi lighting the ever present moments in which choices have to be made, and responsibility taken once those decisions are enacted upon This is all achieved without recourse to romantic, or heroic cliches, indeed there is a real warmth the emerges from the strong relations througho [...]

  6. John Farebrother says:
    Great book about the Chinese Civil War It s not a chronicle, but a dramatisation of the few days surrounding a communist uprising against the regime and its foreign allies The main characters are the party militants, led by Europeans, who have dedicated their lives to this violent ideology, and are determined to win or die trying As is often the case, their lack of concern for their own wellbeing serves to justify their coldblooded mass calculations of the fate of others It s a very well told st [...]

    The book that made Malraux famous A story of revolution, and the endurance of humanity in the most despairing and inhumane conditions The kind of story that s needed, now than ever.There s a good book in here somewhere Some of the scenes are incredibly vivid, but much is lost in translation The prose is clunky, and some explosive scenes are ruined by bad phrasing.Very frustrating this is the sort of thing that makes me want to learn French Ah well.Recommended for die hard revolutionaries, and F [...]

    My Review through liftingshadows.wordpress 2 Am terminat de citit Conditia umana a lui Malraux vezi aici coperta D Trebuie sa recunosc ca lectura mi s a parut greoaie in prima parte dar lucrurile s au fluidizat pe parcurs, totul terminandu se in ton cu seninatatea lui Gisors Am avut sentimentul ca ceea ce scrie autorul nu este deajuns pentru a intelege suficient contextul socio economic si politic in care se desfasoara actiunea, dar imi parea ca eram provocat la a face investigatii de natura jur [...]

    Goncourt Prix in 1933 La condition humaine Malraux s incurssion into the human s nature, his reflections on our destiny and our race s meaning is what in my mind constitutes the main value of this book.The novel is much than just a history of the Communist crashing at the hands of Chiang Kai shek s Kuomintang in 1927 Shanghai Aside from capturing this historical moment which marked the split between the two political partners and the start of the Chinese Civil War, Man s Fate gave me new reason [...]

  13. Patrick Cook says:
    Man s Fate La Condition humaine might be a classic example of a book that s talked about than read Having now finished it, I think I know why Malraux had an appealing, Byronic, image This somehow managed to survive late life tenure as a Gaullist minister and pillar of the French establishment Man s Fate was not Malraux s first book, but it is probably the one that first made him famous to a wider literary public, winning the Prix Goncourt in 1933 In terms of plot, it s a fictionalized retelling [...]

  15. Czarny Pies says:
    La condition humaine is a great existentialist novel written by the extremely flamboyant Andre Malraux who did and saw a great deal in his adventuresome life In 1923, he was caught with art treasures stolen from Angkor Wat in Cambodia After eight months in prison, he moved on to China where he worked with the Kuomintang Later he would organize and command an air division on the Republican side in the Spanish Civil War He served as a soldier in the French Army that was defeated by the Germans and [...]

  16. Ensiform says:
    Translated by Haakon M Chevalier I found this bleak analysis of the twentieth century human condition, set during the Chinese Revolution, to be intermittently brilliant and boring The philosophical musings on, well, man s fate human will as the prime mover, dismissal of all else were fascinating, but the book dragged at times, bogged down by somewhat stilted dialogue On the other hand, the dramatic style was skilled the dark tone of the text, with its descriptions of shadows and light, fog and r [...]

    Este um daqueles livros que devemos ler na vida Um dos imprescind veis A trama tem lugar em Xangai, ano de 1937, em que comunistas e as tropas de Chiang Kai Shek lutam pela poder Por m n o se trata de um livro que narre estes acontecimentos Sim, tamb m o faz, mas essa n o a inten o de Malraux A sua inten o mostrar nos os homens, as suas escolhas e as suas hesita es questionar o que a dignidade humana e, claro, a condi o humana F lo de forma despretensiosa, mostrando os homens perante os factos, [...]

    What can I say Translated to Dutch by the author s friend Edgar Du Perron Written in 1933 These are facts.This is, without doubt, the richest, most dense literature I have ever read Every word seems to have meaning Every sentence insists itself on the paper and is in a constant struggle with it s brethren to be the most beautiful and most meaningful one Reading Malraux is not something you do for leisure Ask Camus and Sartre or Du Perron and Ter Braak This is for those who want to grab life at t [...]

  20. Rosemary says:
    I didn t realise until I picked this up from the library that it was set in a violent struggle between the Chinese communists and Chiang Kai Shek s Kuomintang in 1927 almost 20 years before the communists came to power It covers a very short time period and focuses on only four or five main characters, mostly but not all communists.Historically, it s a very interesting book As literature, I found it rather patchy The best parts for me were where Malraux gets philosophical or delves deeply into t [...]

  21. Rich Kelley says:
    I remember loving this book when I read it in my twenties I seemed then a terrifically romantic and dramatic rendering of what it means to part of a revolutionary movement The opening chapter remains a knockout, but I m afraid it otherwise hasn t held up that well Malraux overwrites so many passages and seems to infects his characters with an existentialist dread He tells rather than shows what they re feeling so that little of what the characters experience seems earned I read this after readin [...]

    Bien que ce livre soit tr s court , il ne m a interess que par interstices extremement courts, et j ai d t st la pr tention de son auteur, a n est pas dur lire, mais je ne vois vraiment pas son interret Et pourtant c est rare que je ne trouve pas de plaisir dans un classique, je crois que comme on dit en anglais it s overrated

  24. Isabelle says:
    Ok, I read this book twice Once in high school and once last year It is a masterpiece of French literature, admittedly I did not like it the first time I read it, so I decided I would read it again, now that I am mature I thought I would now have the wherewithal to get it Nah ah

    Malraux s fictional portrayal of an early Communist revolutionary attempt in Shanghai, China Malraux packs a lot of action into 338 pages, with each character save one getting an ending It is ironic that many of the characters attempting this overthrow of Chiang Kai shek Nationalist regime are not themselves Chinese Katov was Russian Hemmelrich appeared to be German or Belgian and Kyo was half Japanese and half French The actual Chinese participants were mainly terrorists like Ch en And, Malraux [...]

    Como conhecer uma revolu o por dentro, a mente de quem a organiza, mas tamb m os seus desejos, anseios e esperan as Dando nos um retrato sobre a revolu o comunista de xangai, malraux d nos uma vis o sangrenta de uma massa de idealistas, unidos a uns quantos oper rios e camponeses que marcham sobre o dom nio de uma china dominada por velhos poderes coloniais Mas o autor deixa nos sobretudo entender que uma revolu o est muito para al m de idealismos, de sonhos ou de princ pios, acima de tudo t cti [...]

    This was my introduction to the notion of the engaged man, and it was central at the age of 22 to my developing sense of commitment to a revolution that now continues to recede from me There was a sense, at the time, that our revolution would not ONLY foster social justice, but would usher in the age of a new humanity, and a new human Communist Man would be unlike any other man I comment now only because I have added to my list of 100 Best a stupid enterprise, I know, but kinda entertaining Viva [...]
