    One thought on “Blood Of Others”

    1. While the total crush you love it love it immerses s. Simone de Beauvoir c is the Woman with a capital F, the writer par excellence. Every word of every situation the word is weighted studied with a purpose.

    2. I’ve lately been reading Simone de Beauvoir’s novel The Blood of Others. In general I seem to be able to get a better feel for French existentialists from their fiction than their essays and lectures — at least where Albert Camus and Jean-Paul Sartre are concerned. De Beauvoir is considerably less coy than they were, in their novels, about making her fiction primarily a way of illustrating existentialist philosophy.For example, this scene, in which Hélène ponders with her lover the quest [...]

    3. This is a book that cannot be read once only, every sentence needs its own book of analysisIt was just mind blowing!

    4. The Blood of Others is a long contemplation of the subjective experiences of a few French intellectuals caught up in the moral vagaries of World War II occupied France. This novel isn't particularly notable for its plot per se; a bourgeois man cum revolutionary holds love at arm's length for the sake of his political cause and supra-important principles until he finds himself at the woman's deathbed as she is dying a hero's death. As this is de Beauvoir, the lens through which the plot and its p [...]

    5. Loosely based on Simone de Beauvoir's own experiences during the German invasion and occupation of France in World War II. According to , Simone herself thought the book had somewhat thin characterisation and suffered from an overly didactic approach. Partly wish I'd read this statement prior to reading this novel as I had a hard time connecting with the characters.The story also suffers from a too abrupt switch from the existentialist theme that both our actions and inactions affect other peopl [...]

    6. 1930-40 yılları Hitler'in faşizmi ve Sovyet'lerin devrimi arasında milliyetçi burjuvaların yönetiminde olan Fransa'da geçiyor hikaye. Erkek kahraman Jean, yüksek tabakadan bir patronun oğlu. Yaşadığı rahat hayatı ezilenlerin yanında olabilmek adına terk ediyor. Fabrikalarda çalışmaya başlayıp, sosyalist hareketlere katılıyor. Bir eylem sırasında en yakın arkadaşının küçük erkek kardeşi yaşamını yitirince kendini suçluyor ve bu işi siyaset oyununa girmeden d [...]

    7. لقائي الروائي الأول مع سيمون دوبوفوار كان من خلال روايتها الثانية"دماء الآخرين". كان قد سبق هذه الرواية إصدار روائي لها أيضًا هو "المدعوة ". قبل انكبابي على رواياتها كنت قد قرأت سيرها الذاتية التي شكلت وقفة أدبية هامة في مسيرتها. بدأت مع "مذكرات فتاة ملتزمة" ومن بعدها "قوة العمر [...]

    8. Ultimately a satisfying story although the disjointed narrative technique gets some getting used to. At first you it feels like you missed a page or a paragraph also it may sound strange but every sentence matters and you need to read with care. An austere but ultimately satisfying novel as we follow the tormented lives of young left wing intellectuals exploring existential questions of "why am I here? or "what is my purpose?" against the backdrop of fascist atrocities in Europe and the occupati [...]

    9. I want to read this book again. I felt like I was in wartime france with these characters. Excellent writing. Hard to put down.

    10. Si le premier chapitre peut être déroutant, "Le Sang des Autres", de Simone de Beauvoir est un roman captivant. On y rencontre des personnages tiraillés par leur présence au monde. Qui suis-je pour vivre ? Que dois-je faire pour exister ?Entre montée du facisme, guerre et occupation de la France, Simone de Beauvoir nous livre un roman bouleversant qui pose de grandes questions, à la fois politiques, sociales et d'un point de vue plus individuel : existentialistes. Je suis sous le charme et [...]

    11. "Somos todos responsáveis. Mas todos, quer dizer cada um. () bastam os meus olhos para que esta avenida exista. Basta a minha voz para que o mundo tenha uma voz. Quando ele se cala, a culpa também é minha.""Eu não criei o mundo. Mas recrio-o a cada instante com a minha presença. E tudo para mim se passa como se tudo o que lhe acontece a ele acontecesse através de mim."

    12. The Blood of Others was one of my favorite books in college. I read it many many times. I enjoyed re-reading it last year, but it was very different than I remembered it. The writing was self-indulgent and the characters kind of annoying. The ideas behind the plot were interesting, but the main character is almost paralyzed by his fear of interfering with someone else's life and it wasn't believable. Just get over yourself. The idea of whose blood do you spill and whose do you save is an interes [...]

    13. I really wanted to enjoy de Beavoir's writing. However, I found the characters unlikeable to the point of irritation. Too much introspection, self-obsession, and moping around pondering nonsense. The "love story" was uninspiring, and I failed to capture any significant meaning behind a woman with child-like simplicity (not a compliment) who doggedly pursues a man who is incapable of loving her because his head is up his own ass. de Beavoir's lack of structure also annoyed the hell out of me. Is [...]

    14. Simone is brilliant. I love the way she writes, it's so poetical. you find so many beautiful sentences while reading her books. At the beginning I thought I was not going to fancy the plot so much, it seemed just chitty chat about the complications of entangled love lives but as it moves further you understand the context all of this was written on (WWII, the occupation of France by the nazis and the revolutionary communism) and it makes it all so freaking interesting.It's amazing to see how Hel [...]

    15. I gather that Simone de Beauvoir was highly critical of this novel, and thought the characters flat. By contrast, I found they came startlingly to life for me, introspective and given to effortless discussion on Existentialist themes as they are.There is an aspect of this novel that left my puzzled; why ever do the heroine Helene’s petite bourgoise parents allow her to be engaged to a working class, active communist like her dull but worthy fiance through whom she meets her beloved Jean Blomar [...]

    16. The Blood of Others is a startlingly evocative demonstration of the struggles of France leading into the Nazi invasion and armistice. It delves deeply into the problems with class, political power, and philosophical disassociation of the time, while also managing to paint a heartrending but hopeful image of love. Simone de Beauvoir digs so deep into the psychology of her characters that at times it feels indecent. At times the characters act irrationally, even despicably at a few moments, in sea [...]

    17. A wonderful account of a group of self involved, drifting people finding themselves through giving themselves up to a cause bigger than themselves in the French Resistance. Even in this translation - which to be honest, left something to be desired - I found it as deeply moving on the second reading as I did the first.

    18. The blood of Others is just not written very well. I'm not going to really make much of a case for the beef of the book, because the writing was so scatterbrained and disorienting that I don't think it really serves a purpose to do so.

    19. Fantastique! Il m'a fait pleurer, et si la narration n'avait pas changé autant, je l'aurait donné 5 étoiles.

    20. This was a somewhat interesting book, written by a woman that makes men creatures of deep thought and action while women live their lives for them. Set in the years leading up to WW2 and France's collapse against the Nazi invasion, it follows the lives of Jean Blomart, the son of a printer; Helene, the shop girl who wants him to love her; and their friends -- writers and artists and philosophers and the girls who love and support them. Life drifts along with it s petty needs and squabbles as the [...]

    21. I did not really like the ending, but I do like the characters. The story is about 2 lonely and shy people, who find each other because of a terrible crime. The author keeps them true to character.

    22. На 23 септември 2014 г. излезе от печат брилянтният екзистенциален сюжет „Кръвта на другите“ – една от най-жизнените и смущаващи творби, родени по времето на Втората световна война в Париж. „Кръвта на другите“ (превод: Росица Ташева, 304 стр цена: 14 лв.) е вторият роман на Симон [...]

    23. This disappointed me for a number of reasons. I found it hard to read because of the the flips between present and past - the edition I have does not use the signals sometimes adopted for time change, like asterisks or dashes. The author didn't (at least in translation) use the reflective phrases to take the reader into the different time zones. The book also swapped between first and third person sometimes using italicised text and sometimes not. These changes in time and person could all occur [...]

    24. I haven't read fiction books in a while now and I'm quite glad that I found this book by accident when I was searching for another title. Bulk of my appreciation for this book stems from how on point it is on the stuff that's been on my mind the past couple of weeks. The rating will probably be different if I read it at another time in my life. It talked a lot about how our choices, sincere as they may be and meaning no harm, have an effect to the people around us. It made me reflect again on my [...]

    25. Cenário de Guerra. Da resistência. De quem não desiste de lutar contra a ocupação. Os grandes dilemas existencialistas da liberdade. A necessidade de sobreviver, o ódio, a mentira. "Todos somos responsáveis por tudo perante todos", a frase escolhida para abrir o livro. Uma frase de Dostoievski.Confesso que foi complicado ler este romance. Simone de Beauvoir tem uma escrita densa, muito existencialista. É fácil perdermo-nos nesta história. Tive que voltar atrás, ler repetido, pousar o [...]

    26. Este foi o primeiro livro de Simone de Beauvoir que tive o prazer de ler, e devo dizer que a sua escrita é realmente marcante e emocionante. O que mais apreciei, para além da história lindíssima, foi o facto de Simone de Beauvoir proporcionar dois tipos de narrador: o observador e as próprias personagens, o que permite ao leitor compreender melhor os sentimentos e pensamentos das personagens. As reflexões das personagens foram o que mais me marcou na história, por serem extremamente sens [...]

    27. another excellent writing making theory understandable and having an absolute contemporary reference. the story evolves existentialist theory by the evolution of those characters, the reader follows their decision making and the so frightening effectse we allowed to make decisions, should we and should we consider the effects on others? is that guilt too havy to bear? of course we have to, the alternative is being passive, not being, not living, rather being an ant among millions of others, acce [...]
