Guillaume- a sweet innocent and beguilling gentleman who was really a loney, loney man who lived in the past -wishing for his hearts desires while refusing to accept what was staring him in the face - an old and sick companion. For any pet lover it is always a heart rending choice: the selfishness o...

But I may be being very harsh. As I say, I wanted to put forward a view that wasn't all in praise of Armande. She is certainly no saint. Ah Ha - Endora - no you aren't being harsh and I have to say no one is always a saint. With Armande I just love her fortitute at the end of her life which was in ...

What can I say - the bully and the weak make for a horrible, horrible situation. I applaud that Josephine stood up to him especially as she really only had Vianne and Armande to support her. Not an easy feat for any woman, at any time and anywhere - but even more so in a "backward thinking'' town I ...

Armande was a special person - ahead of her time in that little town. She reminded very much of Vianne in that they were open to those who were different, who society shunned. Neither liked being controlled, nor liked any form oppressiveness. They were both free thinkers and very independent. I took...

Vianne - a rose amongst thorns.

I do like the catalyst analogy,
plus I agree with Lumi - she is the extreme opposite of Reynauld -she is strong and believes in herself

Reynauld to me represents the ultimate controlling bully and what better vocation could he have picked? He in the folds of the church, where he could control as he pleased - that is until the wind changed direction. He is the ultimate antipriest as he shows no remorse or compassion. He is a very sel...

I like the points about the theme of change and facing up to personal demons. Also about intolerance and acceptance. I don't have much to add. But it seems also to be about balance in life and reconciliation, with others and ourselves. Also seeing the truth, in ourselves and others, the difference ...

Before I read everyones' thoughts I thought I'd give it a go. I felt a strong kinship to this book. For me it's about women's strengths, and the ability to focus, change and to overcome the domineering male, religious, and antiquated government or civil attitudes - to break free from the mold of wha...
