    One thought on “The Reader on the 6.27”

    1. Such a charming, quirky little book! I read this from cover to cover in the space of an afternoon, and it has left me feeling so warm and fuzzy inside. I love it when books demonstrate a real passion for literature, and this novel does it in spades. The Reader on the 6.27 really grasped the heart of this bookseller.

    2. Güzel bir başlangıcı olan kitap sonlarına doğru klişe bir bitişe yelken açtı. Kağıt geri dönüşüm fabrikasında çalışan ve o güzelim kitapların parçalanmasından nefret eden Guylain ana karakterimiz. Pek de geniş olmayan çevresinde herkes bir şekilde hayattan beklediğini bulamamış, kayıpları, umutsuzlukları olan insanlar. Kitabın güzelliklerinden biri yan karakterlerin hikayelerinin öyle uzun uzun yer kaplamamasına rağmen vurucu olaylarla okuyucuyu etkisi altı [...]

    3. A vida de Guylain Vignolles é feita de rotinas. Mas mesmo assim não deixa de ser uma vida peculiar. Todos os dias apanha o comboio para Paris, onde lê, alto e bom som, alguns excertos dos livros que traz consigo. Os outros ocupantes do comboio acham piada a esta particularidade do seu companheiro de viagens, mas não imaginam que o seu trabalho é destruir livros. Sim, Guylain Vignolles trabalha numa empresa de reciclagem de papel, mas o papel dos livros que são publicados e que já não int [...]

    4. Siempre me siento un poco culpable cuando puntúo tan alto un libro tan fino (187 páginas de relato con letra muy grande) que cuesta su precio (17 leuros y pico la broma). Pero los libros deben ser considerados por su calidad, por lo que cuentan, y no por su tamaño. Las novelas no se escriben a peso.Y aún así no sé cómo expresar por qué lo puntúo tan alto. Es una historia simple, no tiene nada en realidad, es una novela corta sobre un don nadie, un hombre gris que trabaja destruyendo lib [...]

    5. 9 de 10*Antes de dar a minha opinião sobre este livro, preciso de falar sobre a capa. É, seguramente, a capa mais bem conseguida que eu já vi. Para além de bonita, com uma boa escolha de cores, já repararam bem no “comboio”? Está brilhante!Quanto ao conteúdo, esta não deixou de ser uma leitura sui generis. Acho que o ditado “primeiro estranha-se, depois entranha-se” lhe assenta como uma luva! As situações descritas são algo peculiares, mas a narrativa é tão fluída que não [...]

    8. Değişik bir konu, keyifli bir anlatım, çok sevdimBir geri dönüşüm fabrikasında kitapları kağıt hamuruna dönüştüren dev bir makinenin, Zerstor 500'ün kullanıcısı Guylain ne işinden, ne yaşamından hoşnut değildir, kitapları yoketmekten vicdan azabı duymaktadır. Her sabah 6.27 trenine biner ve Zerstor'un dişlerinden kurtardığı sayfaları yüksek sesle okuyarak vicdanını biraz rahatlatır. Ve günlerden bir gün her zaman oturduğu koltukta bulduğu USB bellekte yaz [...]

    9. When I started this book I thought I was going to love it. A commuter who reads a different passage of a book outloud while in the train. Somebody who saves the others from their real boring journey to work and even from their lives. The description of somebody who is not happy with his lifestyle and finds salvation in literature. A monster that destroys books I thought it couldn't get much better. But I was wrong. Somehow I thought it was trying to be a kind of Fahrenheit 451 and it got wrong a [...]

    10. The Reader on the 6.27 is a story of loneliness and regret while at the same time finding itself to be a love story in which our characters long for that wonderful and painful thing that makes their hearts beat a little faster and their eyes widen a little more each day. I really enjoyed the mixture of poetic tone and relatable humour in the book and thought it was a really easy and quick read. I recommend it.

    11. Altamente recomendável a quem gosta de livros sobre livros e literatura. E aos outros também! :) Uma delícia!

    12. 3.5★Guylain Vignolles is a an avid reader who, ironically, spends his 7-5 workday pulping books with the machine he loathes so much he can't bring himself to call it by its real name. Instead he calls it The Thing. Guylain leads a quiet life, with few friends and just a goldfish at home to confide in. He calls his mother every Thursday evening and cringingly continues the pretence to her that he works in publishing.The highlight of his days is the 20 minute commute each morning on the 6.27 tra [...]

    13. I hated this book the first time I tried to read it, I DNF-ed it after 50 pages or so because I couldn't get into it at all, the writing and the main character felt unbearable. But I kept postponing giving it away and this week I felt the urge to give it another shot, probably because it had been on my radar for years before I bought it and I really wanted to see where the story would go. This time it was like reading a completely different book. I thought it was very charming, very Amélie-esqu [...]

    14. On his daily commute to work, Guylain Vignolles reads from book pages that have survived the paper-recycling machine he tends. Guylain dislikes his co-worker and boss and hates the machine to which he daily feeds books to be pulped.I am all for finding a way to be slightly anarchist about your job in a sort of positive and creative way that doesn’t prevent actual work productivity or make you tiresome to your colleagues and somehow helps you become a better person. I’m still looking for a wa [...]

    15. A lovely story that seemed to combine aspects of The Red Notebook with Mr Penumbra's 24 Hour Book-store. This is very much a book written entirely for book lovers, and is also quite deliciously French in it's style and scope. Guylain Vignolles is a reader, one who works in a hellish book pulping factory. This job is soul destroying, and he lives for the moment at the end of the day when he can crawl into the belly of the monstrous pulping machine, in order to clean it out. He takes advantage of [...]

    16. Acho que a grande maioria dos leitores gosta de livros sobre livros, e eu não sou exceção. Tenho lido vários, ao longo dos anos, e é sempre reconfortante perceber que os livros podem influenciar vidas das mais variadas formas, tal como influenciam a minha. O Leitor do Comboio prometia dar uma das muitas respostas à pergunta “De que forma os livros podem mudar uma vida?” e esta questão, presenta na capa, foi o que bastou para captar o meu interesse.Guylain Vignolles tem uma profissão [...]

    17. Дуже рідко, але буває, що я не шкодую, читаючи електронну версію книги. Такої відвертої нудоти мені не траплялося давно. 😨Ок, спишу враження на свій не надто читацький настрій у даний момент, та тепер я довго думатиму поки візьмуся за ще один роман автора!

    18. 'O Leitor do Comboio' é um livro pleno de originalidade, cujo maior encanto reside na simplicidade da prosa de Didierlaurent e na vívida caracterização que ele faz dos personagens. O romance explora o poder redentor dos livros e desmistifica estigmas e crenças pré-estabelecidas que as pessoas têm em relacção a determinado tipo de profissõeslenciosquefalam/

    19. This is one of my airport picks. On this occasion, bought because of the title. Read now because of how nice and short it was. Essentially, it was a lot more predictable than I thought it would be, but it certainly had its original aspects.Guylain Vignolles makes a living destroying books. He has one friend, Giuseppe, who lost his legs in an accident at work. Guylain's only company, really, is a goldfish, Rouget V. Every day, to dispel some misery, Gulain reads something to his fellow passengers [...]

    20. Guylain must spend his days feeding thousands of unwanted books into a hideous, monstrous machine that destroys them, turning them into a pulp that will, one day, be used to make more books.He hates his job, hates destroying so much literature, and tries to compensate by rescuing a few pages every day, and reading them out to his fellow passengers each morning, as they share his train journey to work.Then one day he finds the diary of Julie, who's job in a public lavatory brings her into contact [...]

    21. Ler no comboio (ou em qualquer local) é perfeitamente normal, na verdade é essencial, para quem gosta de livros.Guylain Vignolles lê em voz alta, todos os dias, durante o percurso de comboio. As suas leituras têm a particularidade de não terem qualquer seguimento, são textos avulsos sem ligação que vai lendo sentado sempre no mesmo lugar, o banco solitário e desdobrável no fim dos outros lugares. Guylain foi-se tornado, à medida que eu avançava na leitura, uma espécie de herói. Tal [...]

    22. İlginç bir hikayesi daha doğrusu hikaye içinde hikayeleri var. Basit anlatım, klasik son, roman değil novella. Bir başyapıt değil kuşkusuz. Yazarı tanımak için okumanızı öneririm.

    23. Πολύ συχνά, σε ομάδες φιλαναγνωσίας, γίνεται συζήτηση για το αν πρέπει τα βιβλία να φέρουν πάνω τους σημάδια ανάγνωσης ή αν οφείλουμε να τα προστατεύουμε διατηρώντας τα αψεγάδιαστα. Πολλές οι αντικρουόμενες απόψεις, όμως σε όποια ομάδα κι αν ανήκει ο καθένας, σ' ένα πράγμα θ [...]

    24. Ο Αφηγητής Του Πρωινού Τρένου - Ζαν Πολ Ντιντιελοράν. Το μικρό αυτό βιβλίο (από άποψη αριθμού σελίδων και μόνο) δεν θα το πρόσεχα περισσότερο, εάν δεν διάβαζα την περίληψη (νέος που δουλεύει σε καταστροφέα βιβλίων διαβάζει στο πρωινό τρένο τυχαίες σελίδες που διασώζει) και τ [...]

    25. Wat een verrassende ontdekking, deze debuutroman van Jean-Paul Didierlaurent (hoeveel voornamen kan een mens hebben?). In een eerder beperkt aantal pagina's (183 om precies te zijn) weet "De Voorlezer van 6u27" de lezer op een heel bijzondere wijze te boeien. Hoofdpersonnage Guylain Vignolles is een beetje een eenzaat, een zonderling. Hij werkt in een fabriek, spreekt tegen zijn goudvis en belt elke week met zijn moeder. Maar achter deze façade gaat veel meer schuil. Guylain heeft immers een bi [...]

    26. 4.5 starsA charming short novel, a little pathetic, a lot poignant, and utterly European. A translation from its native French, it tells a story of Guylain Vignolles, a lonely man who works for a book-pulping factory and hates his job with a passion. Every evening, when he cleans up his machine after a day of devouring books, he finds and rescues a few disparate pages, usually from different books, that found their way into a dysfunctional corner of the apparatus. The next morning, on his commut [...]

    27. Meine MeinungIch habe mich sehr darauf gefreut, diesen Roman endlich zu lesen, und zwar nicht nur wegen der vielen begeisterten Rezension, sondern auch, weil mich der Klappentext auf Anhieb angesprochen hat. Die Grundidee klang für mich wirklich vielversprechend: Ein Literaturliebhaber muss in seinem Job die geliebten Bücher schreddern und liest auf dem Weg zur Arbeit seinen Mitfahrern immer ein paar Seiten vor. Ich liebe Bücher über Bücher, daher konnte ich dieser Geschichte natürlich nic [...]
