4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great reading 28 août 2014
Format:Format Kindle
As far as free ebooks go, this was a pleasure. A very agreable, light and dynamic style. A great picture of characters and a fascinating story.

The book tells the story of several generations of Forsyte, a family of upper middle class standing. They work, they love, they lie, they hate, in one word, they live to entertain and give us some food for thought.

La Saga des Forsythe vient de me parvenir. Je garde un excellent souvenir de cette lecture dans ma lointaine jeunesse et je suis fasciné de voir qu'on peut retrouver des livres que l'on croyait disparus grâce aux techniques informatiques. Ainsi donc, bien des livres ne mourront jamais. Je m'étais procuré chez vous les Mémoires originaux de la gouvernante qui a inspiré le film Anna et le roi de Siam, grâce à une université américaine. C'est fantastique. Et tout ça à un prix fort raisonnable. Les livres resteront avec nous, pour notre plus grand bonheur.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Forsyte family woes 28 juillet 2011
Par EA Solinas - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Family secrets, dirty little problems, and a dash of adultery, scandal and forbidden love. Soap opera? Well, sort of -- it's Nobel Prize Winner John Galsworthy's sprawling family epic "The Forsyte Saga." While it has a distinctly soapy flavor, "Saga" retains its dignity and look at turn-of-the-century mores and society.

The Forsyte family is determinedly regal and hard-nosed, almost to the point of a fault. One staid family member, Soames Forsyte, becomes obsessed with the beautiful but poor Irene, and finally gets her to marry him. Well, their marriage doesn't work. Soames is frustrated that Irene shuts him out of her life and her bed -- even more so when he learns that she is in love with sexy, arty architect Bosinney, who is building them a new house.

Soames rapes Irene and ruins Bosinney. His marriage falls into ruins, and Bosinney is killed in a car accident. So Irene leaves permanently, living in an apartment by herself. Then Soames announces that he wants to marry a pretty French girl, Annette, and Irene weds Soames' cousin. But the problems of the older generation get inherited by the younger one -- Soames's daughter falls madly in love with Irene's son, but their parents' secret pasts doom their love.

Three novels ("A Man of Property," "In Chancery," and "To Let"), connected with two short stories ("Indian Summer of a Forsyte" and "Awakening") -- it's a pretty big story, sprawling over three generations and four decades. It's a bit soapy, with all the scandal and family weirdness, but the dignified writing keeps it from seeming sordid.

It's a credit to Galsworthy that he can communicate so much without ever getting into his characters' heads. He displays emotion in undemonstrative people like Irene through little mannerisms and twitches. At the same time, he can give us heartrending looks into aging patriarch Old Jolyon's lonely mind. His writing is very nineteenth century, dignified and with plenty of furniture/clothing details. It's pretty dense, but all right once you get used to it.

Galsworthy was a solid supporter of women's rights, and you can see in Irene and Soames' relationship -- Soames, who sees his wife as another piece of property, and the determined Irene who only wants her own happiness, but can't afford to live on her own. Their respective kids Jon and Fleur are nice but kind of boring beside their darker, more intense parents.

For a look at the social shifts that helped define the twentieth century, take a look at the "Forsyte Saga." Or if you just want to soak in a tale of family woe, love, hate and dark secrets, "Saga" still works.

Anyone who has experience of a control freak will appreciate Soames and his obsession with Irene. I could feel my skin flinch from his gaze. He is so intense you almost want to help him, but you can't overcome your disdain, just as Irene could not. Soames idea of a wife being property hasn't changed much except in law. The mores of the Edwardian era and the rise of the upper middle-class are well described. If you like an intricate plot you will be well pleased.

I have to admit, I watched the tv series first. I LOVED the series. I have only read a short amount of the book however, I love it too. As with any book there is more detail. I think that they compliment each other similar to Jane Austin's "Pride and Prejudice". There are things that you can't get in the book such as beautiful music. And, there are not thought bubbles above the movie characters. The book fills in what facial expressions and unspoken thoughts. This is a book I will read over and over.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 An old favourite revisited 19 février 2014
Par Robin Joyce - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The only disappointment I have in revisiting this old favourite is the dreadful edition I have on my kindle. It is full of typos and a really bad advertisement for the kindle edition of this work. Putting that disappointment aside (and I did complete the saga) Galsworthy brings ideas to life through his characters. The 'man of property' and 'the artist' (or several of them) are pitted against each other, the conflict raising not only the ideas about property such as land, houses and art, but the way in which women are viewed. Despite the grave differences in opinion and behaviour exhibited by the characters and the social mores they represent none is entirely unsympathetic. The Forsyte Saga leaves one thinking and ready to read more of Galsworthy.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Love at For-syte 15 mai 2013
Par Aida B - Publié sur
Being able to travel in time is such a treat. This is a book of epic proportions, the entire story line is so well developed, events flow naturally and while it makes one hold his/her breath, one doesn't even feel the need to breathe. Galsworthy is a master of descriptions, seasons have amazing colors, flowers bloom and wither graciously, and people value family in the best way that they can.
In my opinion, the only weakness of this book is Irene - her character isn't developed very well and I find whatever she does without merit as far as logic / sentiments go. I can't find the woman in her. I would give the book 4.5 stars, but since this is Galsworthy, I'll add the rest of the .5 to his name.
