Description

Romain Gary's Les Racines du Ciel is the best novel written in the 20th century. I highly recommend any of Romain Gary's books; Les Racines du Ciel is simply the best of his work.

Romain Gary's Les Racines du Ciel is the best novel written in the 20th century. In part, it is the story of a man who attempts to disappear in Africa only to make himself very famous as a renegade protector of elephants. The novel preceded any environmental movements by more than a decade.

Romain Gary had a full and varied life. The first book of his that I read was Les Trésors de la mer rouge, and I found his style enticing, particularly as it related to one of the last outposts of the French Empire, Djibouti. He was born in Vilnius (now in Lithuania) when it was part of the Russian Empire. His mother and he moved to Nice, France, and became French citizens in 1928. His first wife was Lesley Blanch, author of the excellent The Wilder Shores of Love.

Adolescent, j’avais beaucoup aimé Les Racines du Ciel tout en étant trop jeune pour en apprécier les beautés stylistiques. Plus tard, l’extraordinaire maîtrise du langage dont Gary/Ajar fait preuve dans La Vie devant soi m’avait à la fois charmé, séduit et impressionné. On retrouve cette maîtrise dans La Promesse de l’Aube, mais (signe d’une intelligence supérieure) l’auteur en détecte lui-même les faiblesses. Il s’accuse de nombrilisme. Comme Jean-Jacques Rousseau, il se complaît dans la description d’épisodes douloureusement ridicules pour sa mère ou lui-même.

Romain Gary's Les Racines du Ciel is the best novel written in the 20th century. In part, it is the story of a man who attempts to disappear in Africa only to make himself very famous as a renegade protector of elephants. The novel preceded any environmental movements by more than a decade. However, the import of the book lies not in the subject treated, but in Gary's unique treatment of humanity.
An author's ability to see humanity from an unusual point of view is nothing new. Gary's genius lies in his ability to make the reader see clearly through his eyes. His narration reveals truths in human actions that must be despaired, pitied, and celebrated all in the same sentence. His characters are not criminals, nor are they very likeable. In this book they include a dangerous idealist, a young German girl who follows him faithfully, a fanatical African nationalist who wants to use him, a disgraced American officer, an amoral gunrunner, a famous photo-journalist, and a French administrator who wishes to be reincarnated as a tree. The reader will lament their many failings and rejoice in their few victories not for anything they have done, but for who they are: human beings taken by surprise by the human condition. His characters reveal how human beings reform the world around them when history has become overwhelming. Sometimes it is world history, often it is a character's personal history.
Les Racines du Ciel is not intended to teach the reader how to live a better life by describing characters who live life badly. The book will remind you of basic traits of humanity. It asks what is goodness and decency and how are they better than evil and brutality? And if they are better, why do they so seldom win in the end? Reading a Romain Gary novel is smiling through the tears.
Unfortunately, the reverence held for the author in Europe is matched by the indifference of readers in the United States. Several of his books have been translated into English but are now out of print. I highly recommend any of Romain Gary's books; Les Racines du Ciel is simply the best of his work.

This is the best book I've ever read! It is the story of a man who devotes his life to save elephants from being exterminated in Africa. It speaks about mankind, what it is, what it could be... It is both pessimistic and optimistic, ... it is difficult to tell the story but everybody, and especially high school students should all read it. It is almost a poetic book.It's certainly one of the most humain books you'll ever come across. The author, Romain Gary, is very well known all over Europe and it saddens me that he's almost anonymous in the states.He deserves recognition and the Americans deserve to know this great writer. I don't know if it has been translated in english, if not what a loss for english speakers ;-)

This is one of the best stories ever told by anyone anywhere. Its tenderness, foresight and deep knowledge of human weaknesses makes it a testament to be read by all. It should be studied in high school as a compulsory book. There is more politics, love, hate, deceit, dreams and braveness than in any other book I ever read. Maybe one day Steven Spielberg or other would like to take a deep read at it and finally give the Hollywood treatment it needs to be made universal.
