Nu sunt putine marturisirile lui Liviu Rebreanu despre propria-i opera, dar una dintre ele, reluata de cate ori a avut ocazia, e de natura sa surprinda, in ciuda motivatiei ce o avanseaza. Intrebat de reporteri despre preferintele sale in legatura cu creatiile-i romanesti, nu a ezitat niciodata sa raspunda Adam si Eva. Nu stiu daca preferinta autorului pentru Adam si Eva se explica prin propriile lui marturisiri sau daca avem si noi dreptate prin incercarea de a identifica un mecanism mai putin vizibil in vesnic tainuitele miracole ale creatiei. Sau poate sa fie pur si simplu o afectiune aparte, ca pentru un copil ceva mai sensibil si firav, avand nevoie de o atentie speciala. Cine stie

I'm taking away from this book the fact that sometimes you can live a life time and never meet your half. And that's ok, because all this struggle to live is temporary, and there's something bigger than all of us out there.
All the other things I'm not quite prepared to believe just yet. Aug 02, Gabriel rated it really liked it. Not really a philosophical existential book, in the sense that maybe Camus and Sartre will or may argue about, but a more pleasant and deep book about life, about love, about who we love, why we love and how we find the one we love and, once again, much, much more Nov 01, Roxana rated it really liked it. A beautiful novel composed of seven, apparently independent, stories. But they are all about finding your soul mate in different times so it's about reincarnation.
I never thought Rebreanu could be romantic and sensible. After a few chapters it starts to become predictable, but my curiosity about what historical time is going to be next made me finish the book in a couple of days.
Soul mates recognize each other by their eyes in each of the seven stories, something like "love at first sight".
If at first it sounds romantic as you progress it becomes childish and annoying. One of my fav books, so so good. Mar 13, Martina rated it it was ok. I have no idea what I just read. Love story? Where was it? Between all historic lectures? To be fair I am not against historycal books, but this book was too much. Many many many details about historical events.
To begin with, i didn't even started reading for the love part of the story, only for reincarnation and how they will find im their next lifes. That was disappointment too. Mar 11, Carmen rated it it was amazing. A beautiful love story. The main theme is reincarnation and the belief that people meet over and over again until they fulfill their mission in their existence on Earth.
I should begin this review by mentioning that I did not expect this book to be this good. About halfway through, the book felt like a three-star book. I already had the review in mind. I'm glad it turned out to be more than I expected. I think the idea that stands as the foundation of the book is interesting and clever.
Paradoxically, though, this great idea is both its greatest strength and its biggest weakpoint. The idea of metamorphosis that is occuring seven times is quite attention-grabbing as I should begin this review by mentioning that I did not expect this book to be this good. The idea of metamorphosis that is occuring seven times is quite attention-grabbing as these reincarnations happen in different spaces and times. No reincarnation is set in the same era or civilization.
The execution is really important here, because having seven stories with the same ending, may prove repetitive and boring. So, you have to keep things fresh and new. And, Rebreanu barely succeeds in doing so, as some of the stories are just how you'd expect them to be, and others are incredibly peculiar. Him: Mahavira, an Indian shepherd.
Her: Navamalika, a virgin promised to King Arjuna. The End: Navamalika, has to become pure before giving her innocence away to King Arjuna, so, accompanied by a convoy of maidens and guards, proceeds to the river Gange, known for his spiritual importance. Mahavira finds out about her being promised to the King, and rushes for her embrace.
The maidens start shouting at the sight of Mahavira embracing Navamalika, alarting the guards. Mahavira becomes imprisoned until the following morning, in which, he is brutally murdered. Her: Isit, lover of Pharaoh Dadefra. The End: Unamomu and the other Nomarchs declared war against Dadefra, which was considered to be a weak Pharaoh.
Seconds before reaching the love of his life, Unamomu is mortally wounded by an archer. Him:Gungunum, son of the great Pidur Libur. Her:Hamma, daughter of Ahnuri.
He finds out that Hamma is still alive after her father, Ahnuri, died in the war and she was captured, becomig Iluma-Ilum's woman. Gungunum's servant, Ululai, arrives with the money that would grant Gungunum's freedom. Her: Servilia, servant of Chrysilla Autronia, Axius's wife.
The End: After Axius's long journeys, he returns home to his wife asking about Servilia. Her wife was a proud and jealous woman, so she rushes and kills Servilia with a little dagger.
Axius cuts his own veins with the same dagger, while having a bath. Gained the name of Adeodatus after devoting his life to God, becoming a monk. Her: Virgin Mary. Comment: This is a really weird one. And whilst it breaks the obvious line by introducing the icon of Virgin Mary as his lover, in the end, it never makes sense.
They could've never been together as she was living in another time. And even if they would have lived in the same time, I think their possible love would have had some impacts on Christianity, in a way. It would've been more interesting to introduce Adeodatus in the times of Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ, which would have made their impossible love more plausible.
Pair 6 Setting: Arras; Paris, France. Her: Yvonne Collignon of Gargan, a year old "martyr". The End: Yvonne is trialed by Lebon. Gaston acts foolishly, trying to prove Yvonne's innocence without facts or without even knowing her. He protests, only to suffer the same fate she does. Comments: By far my favourite part of the book. Although it felt unlike the others, as in my opinion, it didin't quite fit with the other six ones.
Gaston meets Yvonne in the last 3 pages of the chapter, unlike the others that have a great passion that stands the test of time. As a chapter, as I said, this is my favourite one. But as piece of a whole, it doesn't fit. Which serves as a disadvantage. Her: Ileana you'd think she'd have a less common name Polinski.
