A bored, spoiled year old who has a bit of a crush on her playboy daddy hates her soon-to-be-stepmother.
Cue never-ending angst, alcohol, scheming, glam life, underage sex, and boredom, boredom, boredom, and voila!
Please, somebody, get her to do some chores so that she doesn't stuff her head with rubbish! I am tired of such tripe being praised because of "but the author was only 17 when s This is why I don't read books written by teenagers.

The life of leisure that she leads is intoxicating, and her bohemian experiences and attitudes give the work a refreshing polish. This is somewhat of the opposite of "Catcher in the Rye" since Cecile is experienced, active, cool, while Holden Caulfield. View 1 comment. View all 5 comments.
Those who thrive in sadness. Tu es inscrite dans les lignes du plafond. Bonjour tristesse. Amour des corps aimables. Tristesse, beau visage. In order to achieve serenity, my father and I had to have excitement, and this Anne was not prepared to admit.
Sagan soon became representative of the bored and disillusioned young generation whose main focus was a superfluous existence immersed in self-indulgence and decadent pleasure. There is sadness in lonely people trying to fill their artificial relationships with glib gratification. There is sadness in daily conversations revealing the meaninglessness of a life dissipated, with no clear direction.
There is sadness in evoking a decisive moment lost in time, when silence became too heavy of a burden to carry and the sound of fear overcame the music of righteousness, creating a dissonant path of no return.
There is sadness in shame and remorse. There is sadness in a sense of loss.
See a Problem?
Oscar Wilde implied deceit inherently thrives in modern times: One can be courageous and face past transgressions with integrity or elude guilt and create a groundless existence based on self-deception and forgetfulness while being condemned to never get rid of the unbearable lightness of perennial sadness.

I didn't have enough patience to be concerned about the problems of a bunch of vain people who are wealthier than Scrooge McDuck, who spend their days sun-bathing and surfing and whose evenings are dedicated to drinking and dancing. Yeah, I agree it is well-written for an 18 year old author.
But it is also so superficial. It is natural that the 17 year Being stuck on the runway for three hours with Bonjour Tristesse in hand is no fun, I tell you. It is natural that the 17 year old narrator acts like a teenager. What is extremely annoying is that all the adults behave like teenagers as well. The average IQ of all the characters in this book is likely to be very low.
They simply blame the heat for all their stupidity. Let's meet these characters: Her life sucks right now, because her dad's girlfriend is trying to make her study for an exam and doesn't let her sleep with the pretty boy. Could it be any worse! Hey, Raymond, you have a daughter to look after, remember? Considering how he gets involved into Cecile's schemes, probably not too bright.
She decided she wanted Raymond in her life, followed him down to his beach-house, wore a flattering dress one evening and voila! What are you, a silly teenager?! A woman her age should know better than to end her life over a short relationship with a frivolous man known to be loose with women. Anne's action is also difficult to digest as there was no indication of love or any real emotion in their relationship.
The two barely even spoke. Damn, this heat. Look where it got her! But then there was so much more too. Way better! View all 16 comments. Dec 01, Alexandra Elizabeth rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: I found an old copy of this book on the floor of a bar and read it in the midst of a quarter life crisis I was 24 and a rapidly dissolving summer love affair. I found it was the perfect voice for a story about the pivotal moment we all face when we realize our innocence has died.
I could write a thousand reasons as to why I love this book, but they would do it no justice. My favorite book through and through. For anyone who dwells in premature nostalgia. So what to say about Cecile and her incessant scheming? Apparently a summer on the Med, smoking and drinking on daddy's dollar or franc is not enough for well bred young ladies these days.
Where swimming, sunbathing and generally being a bright young thing were once enough, Cecile ups the ante and decides that a more diverting way to spend the summer is to plot the downfall of her fathers current relationship and in between times, try to loose her virginity to the likeable but none too bright So what to say about Cecile and her incessant scheming? Where swimming, sunbathing and generally being a bright young thing were once enough, Cecile ups the ante and decides that a more diverting way to spend the summer is to plot the downfall of her fathers current relationship and in between times, try to loose her virginity to the likeable but none too bright older man with the boat.
A girl with undoubtedly cruel intentions and probably a battered and dog-eared copy of Les Liasons Dangereuse by Laclos tucked under her mattress. Unfortunately all the drinking, smoking and generally being louche don't actually cancel out a moral conscience and before she knows it her frankly childish meddlings are moving at a pace she can no longer control and she veers between desperate guilt and ambivalence as events unfold. Ultimately the characters offer you very little to love about them - Cecile is naieve and manipulative, Anne is a control freak in a Chanel twin-piece and dear old daddy is an aging play boy with a slightly disturbing penchant for girls much closer to his daughters age than his own.
Francoise Sagan wrote this book at the age of 18 then presumably sat down, lit a cigarette and pouted over how to spend the next 60 years given that she'd already written her great masterpiece which clearly extols her youthful genius. Youthful or not,it is a great read, and I liked it a lot. It's tightly controlled and well put together; a master class in how to be a moody teen but with the classic teen scent of festering bedroom cancelled out by the faint eau de nil of youthful genius.

Bonjour tristesse by Françoise Sagan
A Strange melancholy pervades me to which I hesitate to give the grave and beautiful name of sorrow. The idea of sorrow has always appealed to me but now I am almost ashamed of its complete egoism. I have known boredom, regret, and occasionally remorse, but never sorrow.
Today it envelops me like a silken web, enervating and soft, and sets me apart from everybody else. I did not find him absurd. I saw he was kind, that he was on the verge of real love. I thought it would be nice for me to be in love with him, too. This short and sparkling novel was famously published when the author was just 18 years old. While the same length as some short stories, Bonjour Tristesse feels fully-formed and deftly plotted. They see themselves as free spirits, although their 'easy' lifestyle is This short and sparkling novel was famously published when the author was just 18 years old.
They see themselves as free spirits, although their 'easy' lifestyle is, of course, only enabled by their significant wealth. At the beginning of the book they are staying in a villa along with Daddy's current mistress, Elsa more than a decade his junior , and doing little other than sunbathing, swimming and socialising.
The narrative captures the melodrama and insouciance of teenage years so well. I'm tempted to say it's incredible that the author managed this when she was still so young herself, but maybe this is the sort of insight you could only have while still living the experience?
About her father's engagement, for example, 'I had so often seen him happy on account of a woman' - well, indeed! There is also, sometimes, a sense that the novel is written from a future standpoint, that of a mature woman reflecting on her youth.
With a precocious teenage protagonist, over-privileged rich people swanning around doing whatever they want, and a year-old man 'falling in love' with a girl who isn't even out of school, you'd think I would have absolutely hated this.
In fact I thought it was utterly brilliant; I can't find anything critical to say about it at all. I should have read Bonjour Tristesse a long time ago, and I heartily recommend it to anyone who hasn't - it only takes about an hour to get through and it's well worth such a small portion of your time. Sep 17, Madeline rated it really liked it Shelves: My father was forty, and had been a widower for fifteen years.
He was young for his age, full of vitality and liveliness. When I left my convent school two years before and came to Paris to live with him, I soon realized that he was living with a woman. But I was slower in accepting the fact that his fancy changed every six months! But gradually his charm, my new easy life, and my own disposition, led me to fall in readily with his ways.
He w "That summer, I was seventeen and perfectly happy. He was a frivolous man, clever at business, always curious, quickly bored, and very attractive to women.
It was easy for me to love him, for he was kind, generous, gay, and fond of me. I cannot imagine a better or more amusing companion. It's full of rich French people being delightfully and almost stereotypically French at their villa in the Mediterranean, and all the romantic drama and emotional backstabbing that occurs there.
The narrator, Cecile, is enjoying her hedonistic lifestyle when her playboy father announces, unexpectedly, that he is getting married. The woman in question is Anne, a family friend who is the opposite of the previous mistresses Cecile's father has had: Cecile recognizes the threat that Anne poses to her carefree life, and decides to destroy the relationship: For she would certainly be good to us.
How easily - unstable and irresponsible as we were - we would yield to her influence, and be fitted into the attractive framework of her orderly plan of living.
She was much too efficient. Already my father was separated from me. I was hurt by his embarrassed face, turning away from me at the table. Tears came to my eyes at the thought of the jokes we used to have together, our gay laughter as we drove home at dawn through the deserted streets of Paris.
All that was over.
In my turn I would be influenced, readjusted, remodeled by Anne. I would not even mind it, she would handle me with such intelligence, humor, and sweetness. I wouldn't be able to resist her. In six months I should no longer even want to. The genius of Sagan's book is that she doesn't try to justify Cecile's actions. We see the horrible truth of what Cecile is doing, and so does Cecile.
Every few chapters sometimes every few pages Cecile will have a moment of clarity, and realize that Anne is a good person and that her father is happy, and she regrets her meddling. But then she goes right back to her destructive plan, because she can't help herself.
By letting us see Cecile wrestling with her own conscience, and ultimately being unable to resist her destructive urge, Sagan creates one of the best portrayals of a teenage girl I've ever read.
Their resignation to the fact that they were unattractive seemed to me somehow indecent. For what are we looking for if not to please? I do not know if the desire to attract others comes from a superabundance of vitality, possessiveness, or the hidden, unspoken need to be reassured. View all 11 comments. Nov 24, Jim Fonseca rated it really liked it Shelves: A seventeen year old girl and her father are stumbling through life after the death of her mother, his wife.
The father is a poster child for poor parenting; he brings a series of women into the home and takes his daughter to parties and casinos where she interacts with much older men, dancing, drinking and smoking. After all, this is France. Finally he may settle down and marry one of the women but the daughter, dreading rules and regulations, bed-time and study hours, spins a web of intrigue A seventeen year old girl and her father are stumbling through life after the death of her mother, his wife.
Finally he may settle down and marry one of the women but the daughter, dreading rules and regulations, bed-time and study hours, spins a web of intrigue around them. The result? As I was reading this very short book you can read its pages in one sitting I occasionally thought that it was a bit of stretch to believe that a seventeen-year-old girl could philosophize this deeply about love, life and men, and then I read that the author was nineteen when she wrote this book.

Apr 17, Kelly rated it liked it Recommends it for: A lovely pyschological gem that seems to perfectly depict what it was like to be smart, rich and seventeen years old in I particularly liked the delicate, exquisite, admirably honest rendering of Cecile's emotions, whether ugly or sweet. I was that age not so very long ago- it isn't hard to remember the truth in what she's saying here.
Should be read in one sitting- with tea on an unhurried Sunday afternoon. Mar 03, Moha Dem rated it it was ok Shelves: Written when Sagan was still a teenager it is the story of Cecile, a seventeen year old girl who lives with her amoral and dissolute father who has a different woman in tow every two months or so. Admittedly this was better than the latter and at least here there is some self knowledge and development over the period of the book.
There are few players. Cecile is 17, rich, spoilt and supp Written when Sagan was still a teenager it is the story of Cecile, a seventeen year old girl who lives with her amoral and dissolute father who has a different woman in tow every two months or so. Cecile is 17, rich, spoilt and supposed to be studying for university over the summer. She is staying for the summer in a villa in the South of France near the beach; there is no studying.
Raymond, her father, widowed many years ago has a series of much younger lovers who each last a couple of months or so. Cecile is lacking a mother figure; she is also, it might be argued lacking a father figure as well!
Cyril is an older man with a boat only 26, but at 17 that is ancient! Anne is a sophisticated woman in her early 40s, an acquaintance of Raymond and friend of his late wife, who comes to stay and displaces the young lover. Raymond and she decide to marry and Cecile sees her idyllic lifestyle about to disappear. Places Southern France. Times 's. Bonjour tristesse , Ecco.
