    One thought on “The Fifth Child

    1. Mimetta

      Déja lu du Doris Lessing, un très grand écrivain. Ici, stupeur au sens premier des parents qui donnent naissance à un "alien", un petit garçon foncièrement mauvais, que rien ni personne ne peut faire évoluer dans le bon sens. Avoir engendré un monstre et l' endurer toute son enfance Vertige et impuissance des parents.

      I'm not commenting on the novel itself but on the Kindle version of it. On the Kindle Store listing, only "The Fifth Child" is referred to, and that's what I believed I had bought. I started reading, was enjoying the story, and then abruptly at 47% the story ended! What makes up the remaining 53%, as I am discovering, are excerpts from other Doris Lessing books; except that nowhere in the index is it mentioned that the books are excerpts, leading to further disappointmentsd in fact the editing [...]

      J'ai adoré ce livre que j'ai commandé dans le cadre des cours de spé-anglais. Livre reçu en parfait état, rien à redire. De plus l'histoire et l'écriture de l'auteur sont supers.

      Je ne connaissais pas du tout ce livre de D Lessing. Et j'ai vraiment adoré le lire en anglais. C'est une écriture fluide, les mots sont choisis avec beaucoup de justesse et permettent de comprendre les non-dits de l'histoire, la sensibilité à fleur de peau des héros. J'ai adoré ce livre!!

      Le récit est très détaillé et sombre, ce qui provoque des longueurs dans l'histoire.Je n'ai toujours pas réussi à le finir à ce jour. Trop sombre.

      Voulant progresser en anglais, je me suis mis à lire des livres de la langue de shakespearele style est simple, les descriptions parfois un peu longues ont le mérite d'enrichir le vocabulaireil n'y a pas de fin donc on imagine ce que l'on veut par la suite même si il y a une suite sur la vie de Benagréable à lire, je conseille ce livre à ceux qui veulent faire comme moi

      This is a weak book, there is no character developmental and the story is badly constructed. Also the book is very short, and ends very abruptly. On the kindle version the book ends at 45%, the rest is samples of other books. the story would have been much more interesting if1. Ben, the troubled boy, would had been just classically autistic or hyperactive, a less exaggerated form of problem. This could have actually been more disturbing, much more damning of the family's rejection of him.2. Th [...]
