    One thought on “Instruments des ténèbres”

    1. Everyone who s a proper thinking leftist is all agreed about a woman s right to choose What they don t tell you about is the agony tax sure, you can have your abortion, but it better be the most profoundly distressing experience of your life, the most difficult decision you ve ever made, it better fucking SCAR YOU FOREVER, or you re not entitled to keep it, and you get your squalling infant instead Am I the only person who finds this narrative and, with it, the narrative of traumatic sexual viol [...]

    2. Ce roman est une reflexion plus ou moins reussi sur les rapports de force sociale qui gouvernent la vie d une femme contemporaine contrastees avec ceux qui gouvernaient la femme au dix septieme siecle Normalement les romancieres feministes ne m interessent pas Pourtant Nancy Huston donne beaucoup d entrevues a la radio Canada Ses interventions souriantes et charmantes sur nos ondes m ont finalement convaincu de lire plusieurs de ses romans Je ne considere pas les Instruments de tenebres comme un [...]

    3. I found this book to be written in a very different style from anything I ve ever read before It s definitely thought provoking and has generated several lively discussions in class However, I was disappointed in the final chapters I felt that the ending was a bit too much of a neat and tidy solution to all that s taken place during the lives of the main characters throughout the rest of the book.

    4. J ai ador ce roman Il est bien crit avec de bonnes r f rences savantes, historiques et populaires J aime comment Nancy Huston reconduit la figure de la sorci re et de la femme, puis comment elle donne ses personnages des destins diff rents de ce quoi le lecteur s attendrait pour de tels personnages.

    5. J ai eu de la difficult embarquer dans le r cit au d but et comprendre comment les deux narrations qui s entrecroisent s imbriquaient ensemble Une fois que a a t fait j ai avanc bon rythme et j ai aim plusieurs des th mes abord s la filiation, la f minit , le fait de se sentir en dehors J ai cependant trouv l oeuvre plut t dense et tellement truff e de r f rences culturelles difficiles saisir la th orie musicale, la religion, la philosophie antique a en fait beaucoup gober d un coup que a en lim [...]

    6. I read this because it is mandatory reading for my Translation and Literature class I will start reading the French version, Instruments des t n bres, very soon.At first, I didn t like the book very much and was only prepared to give it an it was okay two stars Although I liked reading the tragic story of Barbe and Barnab , I didn t really enjoy the intermittent chapters about Nada I didn t like her voice, her ways, or her negative view of the world she didn t speak to me.It was only at the end [...]

    7. J ai aim l histoire beaucoup mieux cette fois ci Pas parce que je la lisais en fran ais, mais parce que, sachant ce qui allait arriver, j anticipais mieux la fin Dont j approuve, m me si la plupart des autres lecteurs seront peut tre en d saccord avec moi Un d tail traductif que je ne peux pas expliquer m a frapp dans une version, c est Barbe qui demande au p re Thomas d aider pour qu elle puisse voir Barnab avant qu elle ne s enfuie dans l autre version, c est Barnab qui lui fait cette demande [...]

    8. Nancy Huston s novels are like elaborate puzzles, with everything intertwined and finally fitting with amazing precision In this novel, a writer, with help of her personal daemon, is writing a story about the middle ages, and at the same time writing down her own memories of a dead twin, her parents disastrous marriage, her lost child, and her own failed relationships The two stories alternate exposing the writer s own demons A beautiful book with so much to it, it deserves several readings I re [...]

    9. This book was recommended to me by a friend By recommended, I mean she basically threw it at me with a you speak French, and I think you d appreciate this Here, read it I wasn t so sure at first, but I enjoyed it It s a little darker than I usually go for, but she manages to pull around the story so you see that the characters find hope in the darkest placesnd of like the name promises She weaves together the stories of two women living centuries apart, one telling the story of the other, showin [...]

    10. Don t get me wrong This book was very well written or at least it was in the original version and both of the stories included in this book had a lot of potential.But how come this 250 pages long book felt so looong Not long as in there s so much content in it that it is long to process, no After around 140 pages, I just didn t even care about any of the stories and any of the characters.It was a big meh for me.

    11. Somewhat disappointed by this book Story of brother sister twins growing up in Midieval times intermingled with the story of the narrator I enjoyed the historic fiction but found the narrator to be only somewhat likeable I did not really believe her transformation or liberation It was definitely less serious a story than I anticipated.

    12. Really, really liked this book Quirky and won t be everyone s cup of tea but original and well written Translation is a bit stilted though.

    13. Well, the story was ok, but it did not really touch my feelings or gripped me It wasn t anything spectacular.

    14. Ben c est pas si mal finalement, il faut juste lire jusqu au bout.Le meilleur Nancy Huston reste toujurs Lignes de faille.
