    1. Hip Hip Hip, HurraLogo após a visita guiada aos infernos que a leitura de "Quem Governa O Mundo?" me proporcionou, dei de caras e por acaso com "O Homem Que Plantava Árvores".Bem! Foi como vislumbrar Luz ao fundo do túnel!Estava eu a afundar-me , quando um Anjo diligente, daqueles que surgem sempre nos momentos certos, se apiedou de mim, arremessando-me uma bóia salvadora! ;)Num período de flagelos e destruição (a guerra de 1914-18) , um pastor, um homem simples e solitário , atira umas [...]

    2. I read this book in its entirety (a slim 46 pages) sitting alone in a cafe in Annecy, in the French Alps. I was on my way to Provence that week, and I had brought this book along with me on my trip with the explicit purpose of reading Giono in Provence, already considering Joy of Man's Desiring and Blue Boy two of the finest French novels I had encountered, but I didn't wait. So I sat and read it, such the typical American tourist, in a cafe in Annecy le Vieux over a carafe of Jura wine. Afterwo [...]

    3. A magnificent but gently told short story featuring a narrator telling of just one man, shepherd Elzeard Bouffier, living at the foot of the Alps and the beloved countryside that he is clearly in harmony with. This evoked the feeling of reading a myth carrying with it a powerful message, that is written and inspired with total respect. The final few lines are some of the most moving I have come across."When I reflect that one man, armed only with his own physical and moral resources, was able to [...]

    4. ABSOLUTAMENTE maravilhoso! Lê-se de um fôlego e retém-se para a vida toda. Foi um mero acaso encontrar este pequeno grande livro, nas minhas buscas para deliciar e inspirar os meus filhos e acabei por comprar uns quantos e oferecer a quem muito quero. Uma lição de vida, de humildade, de perseverança, transmitido com mestria e a sensibilidade necessária para imprimir na nossa alma o poder do amor, do respeito pela natureza e pelos outros. O homem tem a capacidade de mudar o mundo, está em [...]

    5. After more heavy rains followed by flooding in Cumbria the recommendation to minimise further problems was to plant more trees. This was plainly a sign to write a review of The Man Who Planted Trees, a task in a way I'd rather avoid (view spoiler)[ despite my vaunted intention to review each book I read since joining (hide spoiler)].The problem isn't that I disapprove of planting trees far from it (view spoiler)[ though I don't think that planting in massive blocks of single species is a particu [...]

    6. ‘İnsan bütün bunların tek bir adamın elinden ve ruhundan çıktığını düşününce, insanoğlunun yok etmenin dışındaki işlerde de Tanrı kadar yetenekli olabileceğini kavrıyordu.’Şöyle ufak bir alıntı bırakıp sizi Elzeard Bouffier’in hikayesini okumaya davet ediyorum. Çünkü kendisi hiçbir karşılık beklemeden, çorak bir araziyi azmi ile tek başına ağaçlandırıyor. Ve üç kişinin yaşadığı bir kasaba onun sayesinde yıllar sonra onbinlerin yaşadığı [...]

    7. For a human character to reveal truly exceptional qualities, one must have the good fortune to be able to observe its performance over many years. If this performance is devoid of all egoism, if its guiding motive is unparalleled generosity, if it is absolutely certain that there is no thought of recompense and that, in addition, it has left its visible mark upon the earth, then there can be no mistake.An amazingly relaxing and uplifting allegorical story of a man, Elzeard Bouffier, who, in the [...]

    8. Que alma grandiosa, que generosidade apaixonante, Elzéard Bouffier será eternamente memorável!!É uma obra pequeninha mas tão sábia, tão tocante que me encheu o espirito, encheu-me o coração de esperança que o ser humano seguisse semelhante sabedoria. A natureza é também para mim um refúgio de felicidade e paz interior por isso não podia deixar de adorar :)

    9. E agora?Depois de conhecer Elzéard Bouffier como posso eu continuar a ter a ilusão de que sou determinada, persistente e generosa?Vou ter de o esquecer

    10. "Ele sabe muito mais do que todos nós. Encontrou uma bela maneira de ser feliz."Precisamos de acreditar que no nosso mundo existam almas puras como a de Elzéard Bouffier. Oxalá as guerras lhes passem sempre ao lado.

    11. After long, long consideration, I changed my 3 stars into 4 stars. It is awesome, inspiring, and deeply moving. This is the essence of writing reviews of books. I can understand a book more deeply. Besides, I love reading this kind of story. It has almost something to do with God’s Providence despite the fact that I have frozen my faith.What lobbied me?First, I liked the way Jean Giono himself introduced his story by giving us his wisdom. “ For a human character to reveal truly exceptional q [...]

    12. This is one of my all-time favorite texts. I have had a copy for as long as I can remember and I re-read it at least once a year and I let the incredible writing and the beautiful story wash over me. It never fails to make me feel hopeful and happy.A very short novella, “L’Homme qui Plantait des Arbres” tells the deceptively simple story of a nameless man who was once wandering through the hills of southern France and met an extraordinary character: Elzéar Bouffier. This old shepherd live [...]

    13. I think peoples’ opinions on this book are based more on the message of the book rather than the story itself. It’s the story of a shepherd who plants trees over many years, slowly transforming his barren part of the world into a flourishing fecund forest during the years of the First and Second World Wars. And despite the destruction the trees remain. The message - man’s capacity for creation is as great, if not greater, than his own for destruction. And godlike acts can be done by anybod [...]

    14. Umut dolu bir öykü.Bir kaç zamandır ne yapacağımı bilmediğim sıkıcı dönemlerin birindeyim, içim içime sığmıyor. Kitap falan okuyamıyorum zaten. Haliyle kaç zaman sonra elime aldığım ilk kitap Ağaç Diken Adam oldu. Acaba acaba diyerek okuduğum bu kısacık öykü son sayfasıyla önce suratımın asılmasına hemen sonra deli gibi sırıtmama neden oldu. Güzel bir düşünceyle yazılmış özel bir kitaptı, çok beğendim.

    15. Geçenlerde 37 yıl boyunca ağaç dikerek kurak araziyi ormana dönüştüren adamın hikayesi geldi gündeme. 1979'dan beri ağaç dikiyormuş. Düşününce ütopik bulduğumuz olayı Jean Giono 1953'te yayımlamış. Belli ki evrende karşılık bulmuş. Edebi açıdan değilse bile insanlık adına umut vermesi açısında on numara beş yıldız.

    16. I like this short story. The simplest description of it is: a man plants trees to turn a barren land into green, lively one. He starts this mission when he looses his family. But it is a allegorical tale so there is a little more to it. This character is trying to make the world a better place. While people around him are busy fighting World War I and II, by killing, burning, bombing and all the rest of the distruction that people are forced to take part in while fighting wars, he is not destroy [...]

    17. El narrador nos cuenta cómo en 1913, durante una excursión por la Provenza, a través de una zona árida y abandonada, se encuentra con un pastor, Elzéard Bouffier, que se dedica a plantar árboles de manera altruista.‘El hombre que plantaba árboles’ (L’homme qui platait des arbres, 1953), del escritor Jean Giono, es una historia sencilla, un relato inolvidable. Le tengo mucho cariño a este cuento, que descubrí hace muchos años, curiosamente no en un formato escrito, sino a través [...]

    18. (Available in English as "The man who planted trees"; Original title: "L`homme qui plantait des arbres")A very moving and poetic short story about a French shepherd who over dozens of years and throughout two world wars plants thousands of trees, thus re-vitalizing whole swaths of land and improving the lives of thousands of people. First published in 1953, the text has remained relevant, and it is no wonder that its author Jean Giono declared that this is one of his works that he is particularl [...]

    19. Vor vielen Jahren sah ich im Fernsehen zufällig, ich zappte nur so durch die Programme, einen Zeichentrickfilm. Ich wollte erst weiter schalten, denn die grobe, nicht sehr farbenfrohen gestrichelten Zeichnungen sprachen mich nicht sofort an. Dann aber doch. Und ich war fasziniert von der Melancholie und Poesie, die diese Geschichte ausstrahlte. Da ich damals noch kein Internet hatte, konnte ich nicht herausfinden, was das für eine Geschichte war. Vor kurzem stolperte ich über dieses Buch, das [...]

    20. Minimalistic, touching and heartwarming. The entire story feels like watching an impressionist painting in subtle earth tones with touches of green from a distance; it was painted not so long ago, so the paint dries. You can feel the sun warmth on your skin, sharp winds on the empty valley edges and see drops of yellow flowers on the rocks. Sun's shadows play under the trees.Really wonderful, I wholeheartedly recommend this. It can also be read in no more than 20 minutes, so you really have no e [...]

    21. A mensagem é ecológica e a escrita "limpa"m floreados.Contudo, ao ler este livrinho, que se lê em menos de nada, não me saiu, uma única vez, do pensamento as imagens dos inúmeros e violentos incêndios que tanta destruição e sofrimento causaram, neste verão, no nosso país. Entretanto, a nossa pegada destruidora não para de se tornar cada vez mais funda!

    22. "Jean Giono'nun bu muhteşem öyküsü gerçek mi ? Elzéard Bouffier gerçekten yaşadı mı?Fark eder mi ? "

    23. 2016 okuma hedefimi tamamlamaktan kilometrelerce uzak olduğum için şu sıralar çabuk bittiği için ince kitaplar okuyorum ki aklımca vicdanımı rahatlatayım. Sırf ince olduğu için kütüphaneden rastgele aldığım bir kitaptı Ağaç Diken Adam. Sıfır beklentiyle başlamıştım ve adeta dumura uğradım. Hacmiyle ters orantılı bir etki yaptı resmen. Hiçbir karşılık beklemeden, sabırla çöle dönmüş bir araziyi yıllarca uğraşıp yeşillendiren ve insanlara umut getire [...]

    24. "Quando pensamos que tudo aquilo brotara das mãos e da alma deste homem - sem quaisquer meios técnicos - compreendemos que os homens podem ser tão eficazes como Deus noutras áreas para além da destruição."O Homem que plantava árvores, baseado em factos reais, é uma pequena grande história de como um homem, sem qualquer interesse pessoal e com o fruto do seu trabalho, consegue florestar umas das regiões mais áridas de França. O livro pode ser analisado à luz de várias vertentes: a [...]

    25. Uma pequena e bonita história de leitura fácil, pequenos gestos de simplicidadeBouffier deixou o mundo um pouco melhor que o encontrou. ;)

    26. O verdadeiro exemplo de Ser e Existir para outros.Ser e Existir para outros que provavelmente nunca iria conhecer.Ser e Existir para transformar seca e desolação em harmonia e aromas primaveris.Ser e Existir para tornar o mundo num lugar melhor, onde viver é apetecível.

    27. Krásné, zajímavé, motivující.Líbilo se mi to a rozhodně mám nad čím přemýšlet.Takhle má vypadat povídka.5/5*marky-books/2018/

    28. Bir çırpıda okunacak kısacık bir öykü. Daha çok farkındalık yaratma amacı niteliğinde.Not: Pek değerli yayınevi keşke hatırlatılmak istenen olgunun gerektirdiği gibi davranmış olsaydı. :/
