And did I mention short?

Silence of the Sea / Le Silence de la Mer

It's a hundred pages soaking wet, and that's with both the French and English versions. It should be called a short story, a novella at most.

Again, not a slam against this important and well written historical document. Though maybe it is a slam against the publisher who didn't really inform me what to expect. The writing is impactful, the characters are realistic and at times heart breaking. The resistance is pscyhological. It is a must read for any WWII buffs out there for sure, but expect a very short piece when you get it. You'll be done in a day. Paperback Verified download.

I read the French and the English version. The French is better, more nuanced and more literate, but both are excellent.

It is wonderful to have masterpieces of literature available in both translation and in the original language. Silence can be very telling and this book proves that point. I just have to say how much I love this book -- especially this edition which includes both the original French text, an English translation, a historical introduction, and a literary introduction.

The relationship between the niece and the soldier is one of such silent conflict, and the narration is an example of amazing storytelling. I do love both the and film versions, but for me the book is truly the best. I like this book a lot!

I downloadd it for a French class so I could have easy translation instead of looking up every single word I didn't know and it worked very well. I learned about Germany's occupation of France from the perspective of French citizens and it was very interesting.


One person found this helpful. I've bought hundreds of books through site, but this is the first time I've been moved to write a review. I was deeply touched by this seemingly simple, small story. Instead of good guys versus bad guys, this shows the individual behind the enemy uniform. Each person in a uniform, whatever side he or she is on, is an individual, a human being.

How beautiful that the author, in the midst of the German invasion of his country, could write about the enemy in a tender and sympathetic way. Kudos for such a truly extraordinary work.

Le Silence de la Mer

It continues to fill my thoughts. I have a copy with the French and English, and knowing a little French, I liked to go back and forth, learning more French. Love that it was written during the occupation. Great story.

It's a classic - if you love WW2 history this is what you have to read It's a short story but I enjoyed every word. See all 18 reviews. site Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers.
