Reviews - What do customers think about La Grammaire Est Une Chanson Douce?

La grammaire est une chanson DURE  Jan 19, 2008
After i read this story, i did not find that I had truly received any messages from this novel. The plot was akward and there was no real point to the novel. I was dissapointed because I had heard such great things about this and it was terrible and i don't suggest you read the book becuase it does not achieve the potential that it has received from it's numerous positive articles. I don't know if you read the same book as me.....
Brilliant!  Dec 28, 2007
I am a French teacher and *cannot wait* to get this book into the hands of my students. It has such a cute way of explaining essential grammatical concepts without being pedantic at all. Set on a magical island where the protagonist lands after a shipwreck, the novel talks about adjectives, for example, wanting to "marry" nouns (for gender agreement); about how adverbs are loners, and how verbs need a "time" (and there are different "clocks" to illustrate the tenses). There is a musical subtheme as well.

Ultimately, it's a book for word lovers and Francophones. As a member of the Academie Francaise, the author Orsenna is clearly playing with the pure joy of language. He delights in using an incredible vocabulary--but it is not necessary to look up each word to enjoy the novel. It's all about the pleasure of the word...and the page.

Beautiful!  Jan 20, 2005
I'm not sure whether or not every francophone would love this book, but I did. You might not think that a book about grammar is something to read outside of French class, but this one is worth it. Yes, there is a plot, and the grammar that is presented in the book is done in such a way that you won't forget it. C'est vraiment une belle histoire!
Really enjoyable & well written  Jan 21, 2004
I wish I read this book when I was learning French in High School. The story is fun and the concept is fresh. Since I am still learning French, I think I had to look up every 20 words or so in a dictionary. It was worth it.
