FREE ô Drei Kameraden ò Трое друзей — Робби, отчаянный автогонщик Кестер и «последний романтик» Ленц прошли Первую мировую войну Вернувшись в гражданскую жизнь, они основали небольшую автомастерскую И хотя призраки прошлого преследуют их, они не унывают — ведь что может быть лучше дружбы, крепкой и верной, ради которой можно отдать последнее? Наверное, лишь только любовь, не знающая границ и пределов Прекрасная и грустная Пат, нежная возлюбленная Робби, рассеивает мрак бессмысленности его существования Однако обретенному счастью угрожают отголоски все той же войны – существующие уже не только в памяти и сознании героев, а суровым образом воплотившиеся в реальность Great books of great length always seem to fulfill their destiny at the end There is a journey to be had and a certain number of pages is required to complete the adventure Sometimes that number is small and sometimes that number seems to be insurmountable, but at the end, if the book is great, that number seems perfect.Thee Comrades simply attempts to be too many things It attempts to define a type of friendship that is forged out of horrific experiences, it attempts to describe the struggle for existence in a severely depressed Germany, it attempts to define the true nature of love, and it attempts to communicate the thrill of auto racing (yes, that too) It’s subtitle, A novel of Germany between the wars, appears to have been added after it’s original 1937 publication in an attempt to unify this cumbersome story, but in fact, the subtitle is deceiving.There are many things within Thee Comrades that allude to greatness, Remarque definitely knows about life and knows how to capture the deepness of it in words Yet, it is his lack of focus on life that is lacking in Thee Comrades Had this book been solely about two people and their short time together, this book would have been amazing.So, five stars for one theme and two stars for everything else. Youth is an age of magic: you’re full of pep, zest, enthusiasm, hopes, friendship… love.She began to speak, but soon I no longer heard what she was saying I heard only her voice, and as I sat there on the table in the dark hall, between the boar's head and the kitchen with the haricot beans, a door seemed to open and a wave of warmth and light came in, soothing and bright, full of dreams and desire and youth I propped my feet against the table, I rested my head in my hand, I looked at the boar's head and the repulsive kitchen door, but I could not help myself – summer was all at once there; wind, sunset over the fields of corn, and the green light of the woodland path.Three Comrades comprises a little bit of sentimentality, a little bit of romance and a whole lot of despair – it is an authentic carrier of the zeitgeist of the Roaring Twenties…Only the unhappy man appreciates happiness The happy man is a mannequin for the lifefeeling He displays it merely; he doesn't possess it Light doesn't shine in the light; it shines in the dark.You try to survive and you fight for your love and happiness But time doen’t stand sill and it doesn’t wait… It was a strange feeling Time seemed to have ceased to flow – it was no longer a river that came from the darkness and passed out into darkness again – it was a lake in which life was noiselessly mirrored.When you’re young there is eternity lying before you… Then, suddenly, your eternity is taken away. Drei Kameraden = Three Comrades: A Novel of Germany Between the Wars, Erich Maria RemarqueA love story centered around the lives of three young German soldiers in the years following World War I Their close friendship is strengthened by their shared love for the same woman who is dying of tuberculosis Three Comrades is a novel first published in 1936 by the German author Erich Maria Remarque It is written in first person by the main character Robert Lohkamp, whose somewhat disillusioned outlook on life is due to his horrifying experiences in the trenches of the First World War's FrenchGerman front He shares these experiences with Otto Köster and Gottfried Lenz, his two comrades with whom he runs an autorepair shop in late 1920s Berlin (probably) The city, which is never referred to by name (however, it is likely Berlin), is crowded by a growing number of jobless and marked by increasing violence between left and right The novel starts out in the seedy milieu of bars where prostitutes mingle with the hopeless flotsam that the war left behind While Robert and his friends manage to make a living dealing cars and driving an old taxi, economic survival in the city is getting harder by the day It is in this setting that Robert meets Patrice Hollmann, a mysterious beautiful young woman with an uppermiddleclass background Their love affair intensifies as he introduces her to his life of bars and races and Robert's nihilistic attitude slowly begins to change as he realizes how much he needs Pat تاریخ نخستین خوانش: روز بیست و ششم ماه ژوئن سال 2015 میلادیعنوان: سه رفیق؛ نویسنده: اریش ماریا رمارک؛ موضوع: داستانهای نویسندگان آلمانی سده 20 مرمان سوم‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌ «اریش ماریا رمارک» ست، با نخست عنوان: «پات»، و سپس «سه رفیق» نام گرفت، نگاشتننش چهار سال به درازا کشید عنوان این رمان، با اینکه «سه رفیق» است، اما در واقع چهار نفر از آنها: «رابرت لخامپم»، «اتو کستر»، «گوتفرید لنز» و «پاتریس هولمن» هستند، که در آغاز رمان حضور دارند، و بخش مهمی از آنرا شکل میدهند افراد دیگری نیز بوده اند که به طور رسمی «رفقا» نبودند، اما میتوانستند باشند ا شربیانی Es ist besser, zu sterben, wenn man noch leben möchte, als zu sterben und man möchte auch sterben (it's better to die while you still want to live, than to die and want to die) The novel is called Three Comrades but there were actually 4 of them Robert Lohkamp, Otto Köster, Gottfried Lenz and Patrice Hollmann whom they meet in the very beginning of the novel and who became an essential part of it And there were also other people who weren't formally comrades but they could be called so because all they helped each other in this or that way Ferdinand Grau, Fred, Gustav, Alfons They all knew how hard the life can be sometimes and tried to help those for whom it was harder then for themselves This is a novel about true friendship, when you can do anything for your friend.All the characters are memorable and very realistic that's why you get used to them quickly and immediately begin to feel involved in their life, you share their emotions and can't help smiling or becoming sad when they do so I liked them all Robby who is sometimes a bit childish and learns to love having met Pat, the last romantic Lenz, always so cheerful and optimistic, Otto, so calm and reserved but who can feel probably even deeper than all other characters, Pat, sometimes so elegant and charming, sometimes funny bu always very brave, kindhearted Alfons, philosophical Ferdinand And though in the end there are only two comrades of four you can't help thinking that this friendship will live forever.The language here is plain but very rich, I especially enjoyed the descriptions which were very colorful due to plenties of similes.This novel is not an easy one, especially the end, but still it is pleasant to read I can't say that it's absolutely melancholic, but the time in which the characters live isn't too cheerful and of course it influenced the whole tone of the book here you can see the real life of Germany of that time with all its problems unemployment, poverty, people, who were broken down by the war both physically and morally, prostitution, political meetings which promise much and give nothing But it has a kind of optimistic feeling about it too There are characters who have lived through the war, but it hadn't broken their spirit, they want to live even , want to have the time of their life Their parties, dances, drinking and hilarity with all those problems in the background may seem insane, but on the other hand it was the only way to survive I think the quote with which I began this review is the main idea of the book you should live brightly, take as much as you can from your life up to the last day of it And the main characters did so It's okay if you haven't done everything you wanted during your life because it would take an eternity to complete everything But if you haven't done anything because you were busy with pitying yourself then did you live at all?
