    Justine author Lawrence Durrell kindle ☆ Paperback read Justine author Lawrence Durre“In the great uietness of these winter evenings there is one clock the sea It’s dim momentum in the mind is the fugue upon which this writing is made Empty cadences of sea water licking it’s own woundssulking along the mouths of the delta boiling upon those deserted beaches– empty under the gulls white scribble on the grey munched by clouds Lawrence Durrell Just

    Justine author Lawrence Durrell kindle ☆ Paperback read Justine author Lawrence Durre I see at last that none of us is properly to be judged for what happened in the past It is the city which should be judged though we its children must pay the price Lawrence Durrell Justine It feels like reading Henry Miller and John Fowels mixed with Anthony Powell and Paul Bowles salted smoked and flavored with the sex and refuse of Alexandria It was lush brutal beautiful and horrible all at once It made me want to go while knowing Durrell captured a place and time that will never exist again I felt like a peeping tom and a historian before a disaster The book was infinitely uotable with prose that sometimes bordered on almost grotesuely lyrical It danced seduced pounced and fed on me as I nervously flipped from one page to the nextNext up Balthazar

    Justine author Lawrence Durrell kindle ☆ Paperback read Justine author Lawrence DurreThe opening novel of Durrell’s Alexandria uartet didn’t leave me indifferent It’s probably one of the best well written books I have ever read Durrell’s mastery of the word is indisputable Surreal descriptions of place evocative and provocative tinged with poetic melancholy “The ripple and flurry of the invisible colonies of birds around us increases Slowly painfully like a half open door the dawn is upon us forcing back the darkness”This delicious uote is part of uite a long scene at the end of the novel just before the unnamed narrator goes back to his dear Alexandria to visit the child of hi

    Justine author Lawrence Durrell kindle ☆ Paperback read Justine author Lawrence DurreI woke too soon Unfortunately I think that’s the problem with this one I feel like someone getting surgery who has gotten an insufficient dose of anesthesia or someone who opens her eyes wide in the midst of a hypnotist act I really wasn’t looking to make you look bad and uite frankly I’d prefer it if you’d put me back to sleep but here I am nonetheless looking at you Durrell feels like he was put in charge of the puppet show before he was ready This is a test product not something FDA approved to sell on the market There’s stuff about it that works and stuff that doesn’t and he decided to let everyone see his notes on his experiment before it was done He tosses out sentences like he’s dictating this drunk with his legs up on his desk jabbing his finger at some poor secretary who is being kept late to capture her boss’ “brilliant ideas” before they disappear And some of his metaphors and incantations a

    Justine author Lawrence Durrell kindle ☆ Paperback read Justine author Lawrence DurreI have been meaning to read the Alexandria uartet for many years and now seems to be a good time The first part of the uartet focuses on a struggling writer Darley; it tells in retrospect the story of a doomed love affair between Darley and Justine the wife of an Egyptian Copt called Nessim It is set in Alexandria and ther

    Justine author Lawrence Durrell kindle ☆ Paperback read Justine author Lawrence DurreFor Once Four Was Too Few for a uartetI decided to re read Justine after something like 30 years before starting the subseuent books of The Alexandria uartet for the first timeAs much as I enjoyed the novel I suspect that it will acuire even greater meaning and resonance once I've finished the uartetEach volume of the uartet is named after one of the members of the narrator's peer group in pre war Alexandria The first page mentions four friends Justine and Nessim Melissa and Balthazar Only the first and fourth receive their own eponymous volume of the uartet Yet all four are the subject of fascinating character studies and feature heavily in the first volumeCollectively they constitute a diversity of perspectives o

    Justine author Lawrence Durrell kindle ☆ Paperback read Justine author Lawrence DurreThis book is suffused with wistful nostalgia with Mediterranean languor and the love and lust of yesterday I lived in Egypt many years ago and this book brought back my own nostalgic memories of carefree youth So perhaps I'm a biased reader But who isn't?


  • Chrissie

    Justine author Lawrence Durrell kindle ☆ Paperback read Justine author Lawrence DurreConcise SummaryThe book is difficult Words such as immoral sophistry and highbrow drivel come to mind The last part induced me to raise the rating from one to two stars In this part Lawrence Durrell switches from excessive philosophizing to a resolution to the characters egotistical behavior Things actually happen; we see what these people have brought down on themselves In fact there ARE some wonderful descriptionsThere is no humorI fail to believe that Lawrence Durrell delivers a balanced view of Alexandr


  • Annelies

    Justine author Lawrence Durrell kindle ☆ Paperback read Justine author Lawrence DurreI enjoy the exuisite language and the general atmosphere of Alexandria wich Durrell puts down in this first book of the Alexandria uartet But for me though it was the intention it is not for the whole near 1000 pages full uartet I have to confess it gets a bit dull for me

    Justine author Lawrence Durrell kindle ☆ Paperback read Justine author Lawrence DurreThis is my third time reading this book but this time I listened It was amazing how much of the words I had internalized and I found myself smiling along with some of the parts that were familiar I'm looking forward to actually finishing the uartet this time around fingers crossed and
