    Ce roman qui m a profond ment agac pr sente le plus grotesque portrait des J suites depuis la parution du Juif Errant d Eugene Sue en 1844 45 Bien que ses autres p ch s soient nombreux, je dois quand m me l accorder une cotte honorable de trois toiles car il y a aussi des choses bien r ussies dans ce roman consternant premi re vue, L Abyssin est roman cap et p e bien m ne qui se termine diff remment des grandes classiques du genre crites au dix neuvi me si cle Le protagoniste Jean Baptiste Poncet, un m decin apothicaire, ressemble beaucoup a chevalier D Artagnan c est dire, il veut aller tr s loin dans la vie malgr ses origines tr s modestes Contrairement D Artagnan qui meurt sur le champs de bataille juste au moment ou il semble avoir r ussi toutes ses ambitions, Poncet se retire a temps Le v hicule choisi par D Artagnan pour r ussir est le service fid le un roi qui se fout de lui Poncet part dans la m me voie mais il choisit de d barquer quand il comprend le roi m rite pas son service Poncet ne devient pas riche mais il finit par mener une vie heureuse avec son amoureuse.La deuxi me vocation du roman est d analyser les relations des pays Europ ens avec les pays du tiers monde Ici, il faut avouer que l auteur Jean Christophe Rufin est un expert du premier ordre Rufin a t pendant longtemps un dirigeant chez M decins sans fronti res et a dirig plusieurs missions en Afrique Sa th se est que les pays de l Occident prennent leurs d cisions vis vis des pays du tiers monde en fonction des rapports de force qui existent entre les factions politiques aux m tropoles Ils refusent syst matiquement de prendre en consid ration l intelligence en provenance du pays du tiers monde Les actions et les politiques changent rapidement et fr quemment selon les jeux de coulisses.Dans L Abyssin, les pires salauds sont les J suites suivi des Capucins Les protestants sont des v ritables anges Il faut avouer quand m me que Rufin ne choisit pas toujours les pr tres Catholiques pour jouer les r les de vilain Dans Rouge Br sil, par exemple, les Catholiques sont plut t sympathiques et c est les Protestants qui font tous les coup d loyaux Le constant chez Rufin est que les luttes entre les factions religieuses a toujours des cons quences n fastes.L h ro ne, Alix Maillet, est l autre l ment de ce roman qui m a fortement d plu Alix est tr s charmante voire admirable duqu e dans un couvent, elle r ussi a s manciper physiquement, intellectuellement et sexuellement Ses parents veulent qu elle devienne une pouse docile Elle choisit de devenir une e qui descend des turcs avec son pistolet Un roman cap et p e a un besoin flagrant d un personnage comme Alix surtout quand son amoureux n a aucune aptitude pour les bagarres Le probl me est qu Alix est une fille du vingt en uni me si cle et n a pas de place dans un roman qui traite du dix huiti me si cle.

    I ve been reading this novel on and off for years My husband gave it to me for Christmas one year b c I love anything about the rich past of Ethiopia It s a historical novel translated from French I really enjoyed it, but somehow it kept getting preempted by other stuff.This book accomplishes something that I try for in my own writing and usually fail it manages to be genuinely funny in an unfamiliar world French consul in Cairo in the 1700s Being funny without slang and pop culture references to fall back on is hard, IMHO.I think my only criticism is that it tried to bite off a big and complex chunk of history a failed string of attempts to send French embassies into Ethiopia to convert it to Catholicism It kept feeling like it was in falling action only to introduce a fresh plot with its own rise, climax, and resolution It might have done better as two or three shorter books But, all in all, it was a fun read.

    After reading The Siege of Isfahan I wanted to read this author again, but I did not know The Abyssinian was his first published novel As with that title, he introduced here an interesting cast of characters The plot was well paced and keeps your interest to the end.I liked Ma tre Juremi very much, particularly his loyalty to his friend Poncet, as well as his uncommon stubbornness in retaining his convictions.Poncet is charming also his behavior shows a guy who cares about love and can do bold things to get what he really wants and surpass obstacles in a clever way.The novel is easy to enjoy and the style of writing made it easy to follow the story The touches of good humor are really wonderful The secondary characters also have their own marks of distinction that make this novel a must read for fans of romantic historical fiction.

    As a lover of novels of various genres and different themes, this book was a treat This is a true adventure books with a touch of historical facts The book proves the rule that a story made up of people who experience and after talking about it If you love stories of the past, especially if these are the stories related to the time of the great Louis XIV, then mystical story from the Middle East, the story of a newly discovered Abyssinia, this is the book for you Abyssinian pulls you to read it as soon as possible, as soon as possible to find out what they ve gone through the main characters, what are all experienced in their travels, and finally to find out whether the young man and the girl finally be experienced together.

    Borrowed from the Library.The writing of this book is really quite lovely, particularly when considering that I read it in translation from the French The word choice and syntax are delightful, and I was surprised by the number of words I had to look up.I appreciate an author who can use seemingly meaningless earlier plot points and draw them back in showing them to be important in the character development or eventual working out of the story This book has a lot going for it political, social, and religious intrigue during the court of Louis XIV in France, a love story or two, kings, priests, and commoners Unfortunately, the story lulls, and I m not certain I ever really cared what happened to the main characters which caused a little reading here and there particularly before bed , but no I can t stop reading this right now mania Which could be good or bad based on your perspective grin Jean Baptiste Poncet is a successful, practicing, if not licensed, apothecary based in Cairo, Egypt A Doctor is needed in Abyssinia, the Christian modern day Ethiopia The Jesuits and Capuchin priests desperately want to get into Abyssinia to correct their theological understanding They ve convinced King Louis to try and send an embassy to the Abyssinian King The Ambassador, Monsieur le Maillet, in Cairo must gather this emissary, and choses Poncet Poncet, unsurprisingly, falls desperately in love with the ambassador s daughter Alix and agrees, reluctantly, to be the emissary in the hopes of achieving a commendation which will convince le Maillet to give his daughter s hand.Poncet s plan goes awry He realizes that all was wrong because he denied his freedom by bowing the knee to le Maillet, that he should have married Alix with or without her father s consent Poncet s nature was to be free, and that he was denying his nature by submitting to some other authority.And, here, I suppose is where I m frustrated by the book Clearly, Rufin s view of freedom has relation to license than liberty The dust jacket says, Rufin yokes the elegant language of the French enlightenment with the storytelling of Alexandre Dumas to bring us a splendid parable of liberty, religious fanaticism, and the possibility of happiness I m just pretty sure I don t agree with his conclusions about those things.
