    1. One of those occasional books that changes what you believe is possible in fiction and thus one of the best short story collections I have ever read Le Cl zio s incandescent style is the first notable aspect of his work It is immensely affecting, melodically and rhythmically, and has a powerful momentum It is not dissimilar to that of J.G Ballard in the sense that it seems geometric in itself even when not engaged in some literal or metaphorical geometric analysis of the material under considera [...]

    2. Compendio de peque os relatos donde los estados alterados de sus protagonistas, ya sea por el cansancio, el dolor, la furia o simplemente una alta temperatura, llevan a los protagonistas a un estado de de reflexi n La premisa no es mala, pero encuentro chocante la manera en como los relatos son narrados Todo dentro de ellos, los personajes, las descripciones y los sentimientos que se expresan son exaltados de una manera que encuentro exagerada Es cierto que la fiebre puede llegar a extremos dond [...]

    3. If you really want to know, I d rather not have been born at all I find life very tiring The thing s done now, of course, and I can t alter it But there will always be this regret at the back of my mind, I shall never quite be able to get rid of it, and it will spoil everything The thing to do now is to grow old quickly, to eat up the years as fast as possible, looking neither right nor left.When a book begins with the above lines in the introduction written by the author you should immediately [...]

    4. As impressed as I was that The Interrogation was published when the author was 23, my admiration is surpassed by the fact that Fever was published when he was 25 As great as The Interrogation was, and despite the fact that I usually don t get that into short stories, I still must say that reading the two side by side would lead one to believe that at least a decade took place between the completion of the two books.Most of the stories in the collection describe the minimal Yet, they do so with a [...]

    5. People lived there, sunk into themselves, caught up in noises and rustlings, without a thought in their heads They forgot about details they paid no attention to the faint disturbances that rose up softly, from the furthest depths within them, to remind them who they were thinking of nothing, suspecting nothing unaware that time was going by quickly, very quickly, second after second, and that they were drawing imperceptibly closer to nothingness, to death And yet from this landscape, so beautif [...]

    6. e ne connaissais pas Le Clezio, alors j ai d cid d attaquer avec un recueil de nouvelles intitul La Fi vre Ce recueil rassemble des textes d crivant des h ros perdant le contr le de leur corps ou de leur sens Le Clezio s attache une description clinique de leur ressenti face cette perte de contr le inhabituelle.Je n ai pas r ussi finir ce recueil J ai trouv tout a lourd, dat , empes Cet exercice de style qui aurait pu tre passionnant s av re vain m me si le style peut tre parfois brillant J ai e [...]

    7. as a collection, some are very good and some are less buried philosophical possibilities in each story, absurd, anguished, such as one man suffering an existential toothache, one story that seems like almost a mission statement for this author, nothing less than the world is alive enjoyed this but not as much as his longer work.

    8. 3.5 stars, read in English It was quite uneven, some of the short stories were interesting and I even wrote down some quotes Martin, The World Is Alive , the majority was annoyingly wordy though Not my favourite style of writing.

    9. I m late coming to read the books of this startling author these tales go farther than what we sometimes think of as the interior of personality to write about how it is to be in the world

    10. Intense, hallucinatory short stories about common experiences, e.g having a fever Poetic writing but very hard to get a handle on what was happening.

    11. mad, lonesome, riffing on Sartre s early fiction, meta but real, neurotic but incisive, this is very good, very French and very introvert existential nutty

    12. I read the first paragraph of the book and I just knew that I had buy it and read the rest of it.However, the rest of the book was a rather tedious read.

    13. My first read for Le Clezio I enjoyed his writing, but I didn t always enjoy this collection Next time I will try one of his novels proper.
