Les Belles-Soeurs: if you understand French, read the book. com User, November 9, 2000. I would rate the book slightly higher. I just finished this book today in French class; each member of the class each read a different part. It is not a book I would pick for myself, but now that I have read it, I am glad it was in the itinerary.

A tough play. Very critical of the challenges faced by working class women in Quebec, including the Catholic church.

Billed as representing French-speaking Quebec, with their own working-class culture being stamped on the play, I really was quite intrigued. I can't say that I've read anything that was said to represent that culture, nor do I know much about it. In short, this was a pleasure to branch out and give a go.

Germaine seems like an image of a 1950's housewife, with her desire to redecorate her home and do it all on the trading stamps she won from the local department store. I suppose that I imposed my own cultural image on the play, as I pictured my own grandmothers and their green stamp coupon books. In fact, I would bet that we could find a half-filled book or two stashed in boxes or somewhere in their homes. Those stamps offered a payback to their loyal customers, and my grandmothers kept their own stash.

The one thing that I found interesting about this play, however, was the way that Tremblay gave a wider snapshot of these working-class women and their little neighborhood through the captured scene around the table as they filled books with stamps. When one or another made a little dig or put on airs above their peers, that's when the passive-aggressive claws came out. In the airs they put on, you could see the truths they were hiding of regret, misfortune, and unmet desires. You had to feel for all of the characters. And really, how cruel was it to ask these women to help her, Germaine, to fill all her coupon books with her mass winnings. Of course they would be jealous and catty.

This was a fun, quick, and interesting little play. It is deceptively light on the surface, with plenty of depth to keep you thinking. If you haven't read a play in awhile, I definitely recommend you give this one a try.

A play between book covers rarely measure-up to the "live happening" itself. This is particularly evident with "Les Belles Soeurs" as one must hear the vivid rhythmic lamentations recited by the sisters, in unison without expression, like a requiem for the lost hope of a meaningful life, to feel their dark despair and appreciate the innovative signature of the author. Nonetheless, while waiting for an opportunity to see the play, the written word also succeeds in conveying the forceful message. To be read in the original Quebecois slang version if at all possible.

I would rate the book slightly higher. Four and a half stars is closer to the actual mark I would give it, but between "perfect" (five stars) and "great" I would say the book is great (four stars). I just finished this book today in French class; each member of the class each read a different part. It is not a book I would pick for myself, but now that I have read it, I am glad it was in the itinerary. Tremblay's style of writing is keen and neat; he intersperses tragedy with comedy cleverly and without seeming to do so deliberately. He is able to make the characters sound real and each has their own manner of speaking. It seems like they are actually having a conversation that isn't scripted like a movie; the French the characters use is slangy and familiar, leaning toward the absurd at times. It is a humorous absurd though; it makes you laugh as well as think about the nuances of speech. Some people say that French books are boring; I've seen books in French that seem to have a more interesting story than this one. That is only at first glance. This story is deeper and more human, thus it is universal. I recommend this book to anyone who can read French, and I am surprised that I am the first to review this book. It is well-written and saturated with character and personality. It's a good example of what you should be looking for if you are broadening your horizons and are reading more French.
