They are both married to other people, but who cares. Some scientists go mysteriously missing together with their families, and their laboratories are incinerated. One of them is Roland. Oh no! Jeanne tries to penetrate the conspiracy in search of Roland. For 17 or so years! Now that's a devotion! Finally the world leaders get tired of her and say: "Ok, you can join your lover in a place where he is now, but you can never return", at which point I would have said "Well, cool, thanks for the offer, but N O P E, I kind of like not being locked up". But Jeanne agrees, of course. He develops a new virus that cures cancer in mice and makes them invulnerable to all the other diseases as well.
He tries this drug on himself as well, not in the controlled surroundings, because that's how responsible he is. He also goes around touching stuff etc. Anyway, turns out the virus works on like, everything multicellular, I assume and not only cures you, but also you stop aging and become immortal! And turns out it's contagious as well! World governments gather everyone infected in the small island where they live in artificial environment, closely monitored so that they don't escape.
That's where poor Jeanne is going.

That's where Jeanne arrives and for some inexplicable reason her biggest tragedy is that she looks 20 years older than her lover who hasn't aged since contracting the virus! THAT'S the problem, apparently, not being contained in a tight space with idiotic immortal hippies for eternity! She goes crying about it for pages and pages. Like, come on, go sleep with some older guy if that's the problem, right?
Try to work out the cure? Really, I can't emphatize for a moment. Nude teenagers are rolling in the flowers everywhere and singing, and making love, so all the teenage girls get pregnant. But there's not enough space and food to hold everyone, so one scientist tries to get them to undergo abortions, the nude teens protest, try to leave the island, and the whole stuff gets nuked, thanks god. Didn't care about the love story too much, neither about those people I've mentioned in the spoilers.
Maybe if you're not as individualistic as me, you'd find the story more to your liking, but boy oh boy did I find the supposedly 'nice' part scary! Feb 13, Phebusa rated it it was amazing.
On ne peut que vouloir en savoir plus! Apr 27, Amy Plum rated it liked it. The first half of this book was entrancing, and I loved the way the author rewrote historical events to fit his story's needs perfectly. But the ageist conundrum of Jeanne really disturbed me, especially when written by a man. Perhaps it was a typical male viewpoint for the '70s, but today it rings pitiful.

Mais ils ne s'en souviennent pas. View 2 comments. While searching she will "come across" something huge, the world's best kept secret, an info shared only by our political leaders. A secret that could change the world. It's a sci-fi story who bases itself on history, but then uses some events to create a new story, where world leaders are conspiring, but this time for the greater good.
It was captivating. The plot is good, and we don't really have clue of what a story about a woman looking for the man she loves, who seemed to have been kidnaped. The plot is good, and we don't really have clue of what's really at stakes until it's actually explained to us.

I loved it. Nov 05, Carli rated it liked it Shelves: favorites.
I don't know why this book took my fancy so much. It is an easy read. It is science fiction and I just adored it, though I wouldn't count it among great literature. Definitely the best Barjavel I have read- I even re-read it! I put it on the list of faves, most of which I gave 5 stars. This one only has 3 because it's not such an amazing feat of literature, just a highly enjoyable read. J'en suis au tiers environ et je m'emmerde royalement. Bref, j'applique le conseil de Pennac dans son essai "Comme un roman" et je laisse tomber ce livre dans les oubliettes.

Le Grand Secret des Klingons – The Greys
Interesting premise, but the story felt really slow in the first half. Also, the feelings between Jeanne and Roland weren't all that well communicated to me. All that it seemed to be was lust. Jan 13, Liz Estrada rated it really liked it. Incroyable l'imagination de Barjavel! Un roman sur la vie san la mort. J'amait les histoires de Kennedy et Nixon aussi!
