Mood Indigo () – IMDb

This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Poi, in seguito al viaggio di nozze, l’idillio si spezza: Probabilmente non compreso, conseguentemente non apprezzato, in ogni caso non pervenuto al mio cervello, al mio cuore e alla mia anima di lettrice. I can’t tell if the English translation of this is just awful or the whole concept of the book is awful.

I’m not ee why I insisted on finishing this, but I did. It’s a quick read about pretentious, rich youths who view the only value of women in their beauty, and filled with flawed metaphors and failed magical realism.

I would not recommend this to anyone, and I’m not sure why it had such good reviews. This was supposed to be about love. But it was actually an absurd book, sad and also simplifying.

It was well written, the language was beautiful, the characters more like sketches of lq than real people, but I assume that was deliberate.


I didn’t really enjoy it. It also reduces love to infatuation. It doesn’t capture what I would call love at all.

Ca se viab qu’il n’y a que ca qui co Inutile au max. Ca se comprend qu’il n’y a que ca qui compte chez une femme!! Je vais le jeter dans la rue ce livre. I don’t know what this was. A failed attempt at surrealism? A failed attempt at humor? I couldn’t keep focus at the reading itself. Totally chaotic, random and useless. Definitely not my kind of reading. El absurdo y el existencialismo de Kafka nada tiene que ver con lo que ha escrito Vian, y por desgracia tampoco su calidad literaria bian la fuerza de sus argumentos, por lo menos en este relato.

La base de la novela: Me inclino a creer, que es una tomadura de pelo por parte del escritor. The last time I read a book by Boris Vian I hurled it across the room after finishing it and swore I’d never read another.

La espuma de los días

Eventually threw it in the garbage rather donating it or selling to the local bookstore to save someone else from reading it. Why I felt impelled to read another I can explain even to myself. In Boris Vian eapuma French can lay claim to having had the worst writer in history.

You think they would be ashamed of that fact. Le Monde claims Froth on the Daydream the original English title of Mood Indigo to be one of the ten best books of the last century. As a side note they claim that 7 out of the 10 were written by French authors. Boris Vian embodies everything Americans find reprehensible about the French in a single human being.

He loathed Americans but consumed massive quantities of American culture in the form of jazz, films, etc and fawned over American jazz musicians. For Le Monde to pick this as one of the best books of the 20th Century doesn’t justice to French Literature.

Je to jak Gatsby. Could it be possible this is the same book everybody is talking eepuma and giving so many stars to? From what I recall I was embarrassed for the writer. I must revisit this book. It was so bad Could it be possible this is the same book everybody is talking about and giving so many stars to?


It was so bad, I was ashamed for the writer. The book strongly reminded me of two other works: Three Comrades] and [Book: Not because ddias is so good that nothing can be said. It vuan so bad I don’t know – what to say about it. For me the book was just pages written with text, some characters, events, but really disgusting fantasy of the author.

If there is any deep thought, it is too deep for me ev The book strongly reminded me of two other works: If there is any deep thought, it is too deep for me even to catch the glimpse and know what direction to seek for it It ends in a massacre. Le plus poignant des romans d’amour contemporains — selon Raymond Queneau. El final fue bueno pero no excelente. Love the songs from this author but can’t stand the novel.

Absurdish writing from another era that was badly served by the fanboy introduction. When I first started reading this book, I thought that perhaps the translation was just bad, but then I realized that it was just the book. Most of it is nonsensical, and I just didn’t care about any of the characters.

I wish I could get the time I spent on this book back.
