    2. Tartar n de Tarasc n es una novela de aventuras de estilo humor stico escrito por el franc s Alphonse Daudet y publicado por primera vez en 1872 La obra consta de tan solo 82 p ginas y tres grandes episodios En Tarasc n, En el pa s de los teurs y En la tierra de los leones , cada uno de ellos divididos en 14, 12 y 8 cap tulos, respectivamente.Comentario El estilo narrativo, lleno de humor y sarcasmo, me hizo recordar al estilo de Gogol, de la primera poca de Dostoievsky y de Luciano de Samosata.

    4. I remember reading this book for a French Lit class and just absolutely loving it Tartarin is just a fun character, with the Don Quixote and Sancho Panza sides of his personality making for some interesting episodes with plenty of amusing misinterpretation along the way He loves his comforts but longs for excitement, and what he ends up with is quite the prodigious adventure.


    5. Finally Forty two years after being handed the book to read, I ve finished Tartarin de Tarascon And to think it only took 24 hours this being the scholastic version distributed to us in Level 3 HS French.Anyway, it was a fun read a cute story And I never knew that it was written by Daudet, whose Lettres de mon moulin is one of my favorite stories.



    6. As I am planning to visit Tarascon in about a month, I thought I d better be ready in case I bump into Tartarin so that I can recognize him Now that I know that I may encounter him dressed as an Algerian wearing a red ch chia fez , it may be easier for me A give away would also be if I saw a man with a gentle looking camel on any road around Marseille or Avignon.For if I were to approach him, his naivet , his camaraderie, and his empathy towards animals some, since after all he sees himself as a [...]

    8. I read this because Frederick Hamilton praised it in The Days Before Yesterday, but either it is much funnier in French, or you need to know the southern French culture it satirizes as he did The best satires work even if the subject of the satire is lost How many people who enjoy Cold Comfort Farm have read the forgotten books Gibbons mocked It might be that the target is just not a good one The comfortable, provincial, self important southern French of the mid 19th century were clearly starved [...]


    9. We all know the type That guy who s done things Been to Africa Been to the Arctic Walked all the way to the top of the Empire State Building.That s Tartarin Tarascon.He a s small town type, speaking in the patois of the south of France, who goes mountain climbing in Switzerland in order to show off to his buddies While there, he falls in love with a Russian nihlist on the lam after she and her group tried to kill the czar He proposes marriage She leaves for Moscow, and he doesn t have the courag [...]


    10. Here s another French book that my well meaning instructors bestowed upon me but that I was not prepared for It was a slow, grinding read I remember clearly my struggles with the language than the actual plot Basically, a man with big dreams goes to North Africa Morocco While his friends and neighbors laugh at his ambitions, Tartarin becomes a sort of hero, an adventurer For all that, I didn t much like the protagonist he was too much the buffoon but I suppose that was the point.


    11. Este libro forma parte de mi ret0 lector 2016 21 Un libro de mas de cien a os.Publicado en Francia por primera vez en 1872, Tartarin de Tarasco es una historia corta y muy entretenida de leer, si he tardado tanto en terminarla es porque estoy un poco distra da debido a una resaca literaria Por eso puse este libro en mi lista de relectura Tristemente, dejare la rese a hasta aqu ya que, no me parece justo extenderme mas en estos momentos Tal vez mas adelante, cuando lo lea mas detenidamente, reali [...]


    12. Peut tre que je devrais le lire en Anglais, qui sait Ca fait des ann es mais je consid re toujours Tartarin comme le personnage le plus insupportable de la litt rature, mais c est qu un avis personnel apr s tout, il me fait sortir de mes gonds a se voit que je suis proven ale haha to those who wonder if it s funnier in French, i d say it s probably not.


    13. Although the story has a huge potential for humor, I believe it was not developed properly.Reading this short book it kinda felt like a second hand joke, when the one telling the joke finishes with I suppose you had to be there


    14. Incredibly entertaining, very telling style, full of irony undertones of criticism on the bourgeois gentilhomme Typical exaggerations, in line of Rabelais Outspoken defense of the southern mentality.


    15. Yeah Somewhat lacking in lustre The description of Tartarin as Don Quixote and Sancho Panza in one body is a great idea, it just didn t seem to rise to the heights I was hoping for.


    16. Divertido relato de las andanzas de un personaje que, seg n descripci n del propio autor, a na en si mismo a Don Quijote y Sancho.


    17. Ador vel novela do g nero picaresco a qual narra as aventuras e desventuras de um simp tico her i burlesco.




    18. Es ist nat rlich m glich, dass ich als kleines M dchen keinen Humor hatte Aber diese skurrile Geschichte fand ich u erst dumm.





    19. J ai beaucoup aim ce livre, surtout pour l humour plein d ironie qui est parfaitement ma tris par l auteur C est le genre d histoire qu on imagine facilement cont e grand renfort de gestes et de grimaces Certains pisodes m ont fait clater de rire, comme par exemple l pisode du dromadaire.



    20. i enjoyed this light hearted tale although the anti Semitic references saddened me Written in the mid 1850s, it is my introduction to Daudet.


    21. Une pop e burlesque en qu te de lions qui fait voyager de la Provence l Alg rie Un r cit truculent qui se lit avec plaisir Vive Tartarin de Tarascon



    22. Tinha outras expectativas quanto ao livro.Apesar de tudo de agrad vel e r pida leitura.Tartarin um homem da pequena cidade de tartarin, Sul de Fran a, onde todos se conhecem, todos se admiram e todos s o cheios de si mesmos, sendo que Tartarin um pouco mais cheio do que os outros Apaixonado por aventuras D Quixote no planeamento e Sancho pan a na execu o mas a certa altura desafiado e l vai para uma grande aventura no pa s dos teurs turcos, mas na arg lia parte todo apetrechado mas a argel colon [...]
