review 1: "Talvez nem tenha havido guerra, pensava Ethel. No que tocava a ela e sua família, eles haviam errado pelas estradas e depois foram se esconder nas montanhas. Tinha havido apenas crimes, crimes e criminosos, bandos espalhados pelos campos para matar, saquear e violar. Ela nada co...

review 1: Le Clezio's African is not the Africans themselves, but his father. The book talks of the impression and the effects that the bodies and the land of Africa left behind on the author and his father, how it carved their sensibilities, worldview and eventually turning his father int...
Desert (1966)

review 1: A moving story of colonial barbarity against an uncomprehending people, a true clash of civilizations in the name of greed and power. Within it are incredibly striking portraits of children: Nour, Lalla and Radicz, victims of circumstance and possessors of an indomitable spirit ...

English

review 1: I responded to the lyricism, the sensuality, the evocation of environments, but I was turned off by the protagonist's lack of real engagement with his human and natural communities. This was a story of a recluse, a failed colonialist and a failed dreamer, someone who made observa...
The Interrogation (1963)
language
English
3.22 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: per essere l'opera prima di un 23enne l'ho trovato notevole anche se un tantino pretenzioso; la storia è presto detta, si tratta dei percorsi di un giovane uomo nei meandri della sua psiche contorta e contemporaneamente nei vicoli e nel lungomare di una città balneare in un afoso...
L'Africain (2004)
language
English
3.63 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: Un coacervo di ricordi, che danno l’impressione di essere stati scritti di getto, senza ordine logico, dell’infanzia africana dello scrittore: così posso descrivere questo romanzo. Il fine è ricostruire la figura paterna, l’africano, un medico originario delle isole Mauritius che...
The African (2004)
language
English

review 1: Essa novela de cunho auto biográfico é uma terna e comovente homenagem do autor a seu pai, um médico inglês que dedica sua vida a um ideal de liberdade e amor a África, sacrificando conforto e aconchego familiar. Vejo esse livro como uma espécie de testemunho, onde o autor demons...

review 1: This is an exceptional literary work. I read it as a translation into English and could only imagine the pleasure of reading it in the original French.It is total immersion in the natural environment of the desert of Africa, exquisite prose.Even when it takes a short diversion in...
Der Goldsucher (1985)
language
English

review 1: The Prospector is one of the more lyrical novels I’ve ever read. It has a rhapsodic, dreamy quality that envelopes you in the sublime landscapes and coming-of-age adventures of the protagonist Alexis L’Etang. His childhood is explored in all its curiosities and later in his compu...
Il verbale (1963)
language
English
3.21 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Adam Pollo, an eccentric loner who suffers from amnesia, struggles to comprehend reality. He doesn't know whether he deserted the army or escaped a mental ward. The way his mind articulates his world, however, is pure art. Scenes in Le Clezio's novel echo "The Stranger" by Camus ...
Terra Amata (1969)
language
English
3.7 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: I picked this book accidentally and I couldn’t help marvelling at the simplicity and honesty the introduction has. Captivated I began. There is no story as such (for it can be the story of any random person). It rather felt like dairy entries. Reading this was as good as a roller...
