    Heaven Has no Favorites few nights back my mother asked me who my most favorite authors were Among the names I listed was of course Erich Maria Remarue She had read most of his novels as a student but she found him way to depressing and she suggested it was about time I stopped being so suicidal and read something cheerfulWhen I went to bed I started thinking about what she said Having read 7 novels from Erich Maria Remarue I agree he always creates a gloomy atmosphere of despair and hopelessness His characters are exemplary sufferers – scarred by one of the two World Wars missing family members and friends fighting a terminal illness suffering from depression and all of the above His characters are extremely philosophical – they further their suffering by thinking over and over again about the meaning of life and death the existence of happiness the relationship between people the past and the future the nature of love His characters drink and eat I know this sounds stupid but one of the aspects about Remarue I have noticed is that he pays special attention to the food and drinks accompanying his characters Alcohol has that special function in his works and in life in general – it alleviates the pain and it prompts the characters to even philosophical endeavors across the human mind They drink when they celebrate they drink when they suffer and they drink when they love And yet in this suicidal atmosphere Erich Maria Remarue always includes a spark of hope No matter the circumstances his characters manage to fall in love – completely utterly hopelesslyRead

    I found this old book in an antiue shop and it was a real treat It tells the story of Lillian who is slowly dying and how she leaves a hospital in search of living out her final days in full She meets Clerfayt a race car driver Essentially they each live for the moment and fall in love We are all living an instant at a time who know if we have a long life and does the future extend only to the next breath we each take Who knows?

    I like books that make you stop and think about life and what you're doing with it those that inspire you to try contemplate the world in a way different than your routine one through the eyes of the character that struck you with perceptions not shared by the common lads Now I often find myself thinking if I knew I'd die in a month how would that thing I'm looking at right now feel for me how would I see it differently enjoy it perhaps?Heaven has no favorites is one of those books that left a mark in my inner world left me with something to remember a reminder of a truth we are all familiar with but easily forget in our daily lives until it actually comes knocking on our door

    As if gazing down a long corridor Lillian saw what remained what could still possibly happen between them It was a corridor that narrowed steadily and did not have an exit She could not walk along it Others who had timeprobably could do it Not she And in love there was no turning back You could never begin afresh; what had happened remained in your blood Clerfayt could never again be as he had been with her He could be that way with any other woman but not with her What they had had could no be recalled than time and no sacrifice no readiness no amount of good will would suffice That was the sad the inexorable law Lillian knew it and for that reason she wanted to leave The remnant of her life was her whole life—but in Clerfayt’s life it was only a small part It therefore depended entirely on her not on Clerfayt The scales were too uneven; what would be only an episode in his life although he did not believe it now was the end for her She could not throw it away; she knew that now She felt no regret; she had too little time even for that But she felt a clarity that resembled the morning’s clarity And with this clarity the last mists of misunderstanding vanished She felt the small sharp joy of decision And—strangely—with the decision her tenderness returned—for she was now out of danger

    The language at first seems a bit outdated but Remarue wrote this book almost 50 years ago In a time when people were different as well Had manners at least if nothing else In my mind I was juggling with this fact 50 years ago Remarue was internationally well known writer and nowadays he is forgotten But this book is great There were times when I felt disconnected with the characters and I was frowning because I was expecting so much of it But I didn’t understand it and I was rushing The title is brutal and appropriate It’s not like Remarue will force you and make you love his Lillian and Clerfayt He is not impressed with you as a reader he is not going to suck up he lets you observe but he leaves you on the other side of the fence He engages you and then shocks you But in a really subtle way Remarue is not a provocative writer He is believable Along the way he writes these gems of philosophy life truths and viewpoints He connects their stories in a full circle and you understand why Lillian is completely closed and torn and why Clerfayt needs wind and space And thus why heaven has no favorites

    A shining masterpiece that left a tremendous impression on me The storyline is almost missing and the novel has nothing unnecessary It is full of european atmosphere pictures of snowy mountains of Switzerland rich smell of Italian sea and Paris morning are like a touch away Each and every little event thought or dialog has a moral enough for a short story of it's own and the main idea touches the depths of human existence not only the meaning of life as a full but the meaning of every small moment that we have Absolute must read for everyone but the most for late teen ages

    Death death and DEATHIt is 1949 and Europe is trying to recover from the nightmarish years of WW II The novel portrays the improbable love of Lillian a 24 year old charming lady suffering from terminal tuberculosis and Clerfayt a 44 year old professional car racer Lillian is fully aware that time is uickly running out for her and she determinedly appreciates every moment and experience life can still offer as a gift She is the breathing manifestation of Carpe Diem freed from the shackles of long term commitments and everyday banalities in a manner which is the uniue privilege of those who don’t care a lot about tomorrow Lillian doesn’t have the luxury to take life and health for granted like most people Her fascination with the honest joy of living each moment for itself irresistibly seduces Clerfayt and other men They don’t fully understand what attracts them to Lillian but they instinctively admire her nevertheless Remarue creates a bittersweet atmosphere where lighter episodes and dialogues are constantly overshadowed by the unspeakable truth The novel has some beautifully written touching scenes I am always uick to draw upon my cold heart and cynical mind against attacks of syrupy romanticism – that was not needed here which is grand testimony to Remarue’s brilliance Heaven Has No Favorites is a sound reminder that as long as one is healthy and has someone to love the remaining individual challenges concerns and problems presented by life might eventually be no than trifling inconveniences

    This book showed great insight on the matters of life and death I would recommend it to someone who wants to learn how to appreciate life's every moment If you have ever considered that life is not worth living this book is for you 55

    Remarue is just astonishing he's uickly becoming one of my favourite authors Each book he writes is a new adventure of the soul You instantly want to cry reading the pages and getting closer to the end of the book which you know will make you really sad Everyone could relate to the topics he writes about Lillian and Clerfayt's love is unconventional and tragic yet beautiful and touching A brilliant masterpiece
