Le Silence de la mer est un classique. C'est un livre tres emouvant et romantique qui met l'amphase sur le silence.Un silence qui exprime a la fois la resistence francaise,l'amour existant entre l'allemand et la niece,silence qui exprime le sentiment des personnages,silence qui exprme le silence lui meme.le silence est qui omni-present a tous les stages du recit.

One of my favourite pieces of French WW2 literature. Thought-provoking and mesmerising. While a seemingly simple short story, Vercors instead encourages the reader to reflect upon life in France during the Second World War and French relations with the Germans. Best read in the original French, but the translation is just as interesting. It may take a few reads to truly appreciate Vercors' work.

I read this book at High School, while studying French. Being a teenage girl with an interest in history, I absolutely loved the book - it is so romantic, and wonderfully written, and simple enough for a French student to read and understand (and learn, while reading a compelling story - great motivation!).

I can't wait to re-read it!

I don't usually enjoy this genre of book, but 'Le Silence de la mer' surprised me. It wasn't too difficult for my intermediate French either. I would recommend it!

Classic book for a French A Level level reader. Brilliant for young people especially girls 17 to 30 . This does not exclude other ages, it is brilliantly written

I don't understand why this novella is considered a classic. It's like a first attempt at writing by someone who didn't get it right and never tried again.
