SUMMARY Le pont de la rivière Kwaï REVIEW ☆ Le pont de la rivière Kwaï Pierre Boulle Ü 8 REVIEW Ted sense of duty aid his enemy While on the outside as the Allies race to destroy the bridge Nicholson must decide which will be the first casualty his patriotism or his pri. This was in my personal opinion a complete stinkerThis book is raved about by so many people it and the movie it inspired were the forerunners of a great deal of historical literature film and documentaries about the bridge in uestion and the Japanese WWII prison camps that worked on the Burma railway Some have called it a classic war novel but I found it appallingly badly written or possibly translated I would not know stereotyped way past the point of caricature incredibility verbose and insultingly incorrect on historical detailsPerhaps if this was the first story of it s kind I had read or if I knew nothing about the actual history I might have tolerated it better but no matter what it would NEVER have been a good bookFirst The writing It was very verbose florid and clumsy You have to give it some leeway for being a translation sure The romance languages do not always translate easily to English But the descriptions of the camps and the conditions were vague and unconvincing while the descriptions of the jungles and climate were pretty lame considering the author was meant to have been in a few On the other hand I had to endure pages of a young soldiers inner agonising over the fact that he may have to kill a man with a knife which was unlikely and honestly got boring In terms of story structure it was all over the place We start with the POW s in the camp led by a batshite crazy Colonel as described by a medic who was the only even slightly likely character in the whole book But after having set up the POW camp and the bridge as the main portion of the story but about halfway through the author seems to get bored with them which I understand as I too was bored with them and then the story drifts off to the separate team that have been sent to blow up the bridge and which have no link at all to the POWs Three men almost no action pages and pages of florid waffle Did anyone REALLY enjoy this novel Or did they watch the movie and pretend to have read itSecond the characterisation Yes it is as racist as you could possibly imagine Actually it is worse Many historical novels are racist sexist or imperialist in any one of many ways and I read a lot of historical stuff so I can usually read past that accepting it as the perspective of the time in which it was written Post WWII there was a lot of racism against the Japanese which is the sort of response that can be understood if not enjoyed and during the war as with any war it is an effective techniue to demonise and deminish the enemy This book was by far one of the worst of this kind I have ever read though the author could not mention a single Japanese character without abusing their physical appearance he could not mention the Japanese as a nation without sneering at how they are primitives and just generally subpar to Europeans Leaving aside the fact that Japan is a old rich far from primitive culture the racism was still excessive Worse He did the same thing to the Siamese and that infuriated me completely Thailand is an incredibly old immensely civilized culture which I both adore and respect and THEY WERE ALLIES in this scenario There is no excuse at all for diminishing and abusing them for calling them savages when they are your guides and allies Next was a really really odd and even icky element We all know that the French and the English have issues Pierre Boulle chose to write this novel using English characters rather than French and as far as I can see he did that purely for the purpose of creating nasty childish and stupid caricatures as a sly way to mock the English The Colonel was idiotic the behaviour of the English POW s was so very far from reality I can only assume Pierre never met one or maybe he did and still chose character assassination on these men that had suffered so much While for a while I tried to believe that it was the translation that made the characters so immensely unbelievable by page 50 I could no longer believe that So racist against the Japanese the Siamese AND the English This author is a piece of workThird the history Here one might have expected the author to shine since the fictional story claims to have used Pierre Boulle s own life experience working in Malaysia plantations and for allied forces in Singapore and Indochina during World War II Well wherever Pierre hung out I am dead certain that it was nowhere near the actual Burma Railway or with anyone who was really there The things that the workers on that railway suffered were horrendous but Pierre barely mentions them a casual wave of his hand about not having enough clothes A glancing mention that the medic in the team was not happy about the conditions There was one pretty moderate beating Knowing what actually occurred on the Hellfire pass and on the death railway reading this actually made me sick with fury on behalf of the veterans I don t mind that the actual bridge and the mission to sabotage are fictional that is fine for a novel But the description of the British Colonel virtually subjugating the Japanese commandant of the work camp that was so idiotically ludicrous that I could barely read it The complete lack of understanding on the part of the author of ANY of the actual events or conditionsughI will leave you with a couple of excerpts that annoyed me The officers sir the British officers They are not being made to work they are all in full uniform badges of rank and all pg 92 The Siamese were not ualified to appreciate the technical genius of Captain Reeves but they were fully aware this was no shapeless scaffolding in the usual Japanese style Primitive people have an instinctive appreciation of applied art and design Primitive Thai architecture PRIMITIVE This dreck
