Reviews - What do customers think about Le Testament Francais?
the perfect read! Nov 9, 1999
Makine captures beautifully the solitary emptiness of the steppes and their harsh beauty... you can really feel the silence of the vast land, the chill of the wind, the warmth of his family's tiny appartment... even more important is his realistic and compelling portrayal of his struggle for identity, his desire to belong...
Le style est tres beau Oct 13, 1999
Les atmospheres sont tres attachantes, on y retrouve l'ame slave et les chagrins et bonheurs de l'enfance et de l'adolescence.
Love story Jan 28, 1999
It is unusual love story, love in many senses... The story starts slowly, developing in several historical and geografical planes planes. In some parts it looks more like memoirs, not a novel, because all characters are vrey realistic.
A beautiful nostalgic story about grandchild love of grandmo Jul 22, 1998
Well written, typical russian type of story, makes you cry, makes you laugh, strong emotions.
Well written book that tells about the culture differences Jul 20, 1998
The book is well written. I have read the French, the Finnish and the English versions and I do admire all these works. The story is beautiful and at the end sensitive, too. The differences between 2 cultures come clearly up.
