Far more daring and truthful than any of her other novels, The North China Lover is a fascinating retelling of the dramatic experiences of Duras's adolescence that shaped her most famous work. Initially conceived as notes toward a screenplay for The Lover, this later novel, written toward the end of her life, emphasizes the tougher aspects of her youth in Indochina and possesses the intimate feel of a documentary. Both shocking and enthralling, the story Duras tells is "so powerfully imagined (or remembered) that it . . . lingers like a strong perfume" (Publishers Weekly). Hailed by the French critics as a return to "the Duras of the great books and the great days," it is a mature and complex rendering of a formative period in the author's life.… (mer)

I liked North China Lover better than the Lover. To me both books are about the same characters though I read some place that they are two different stories. Its just that the lover is written as a biography/ diary entry kind, while the North China Lover is written in detail with dialogues like a proper novel with directions from the writer for a movie script. I thoroughly enjoyed the book.

Uma visão diferente daquela de O Amante. Nos faz imaginar como seria o filme se tivesse sido dirigido por ela. Com certeza não seria convencional. ( )

I did not know there was a relation between the two books [L'Amant] (The Lover) and [L'Amant de la Chine du Nord] (The North China Lover).

I read [L'Amant de la Chine du Nord] a few years ago. It is like a little Lolita-story.

It was my first book by [[Marguerite Duras]] and made her one of my favourite French authors. ( )

There are those who say that The Lover is a much better telling of this affair. Not having read it, I cannot agree or disagree. I did see the movie many years ago and it was what made me pick up this book, which was written after Duras was elderly and her lover had died. Whatever its other failings might be, this book was beautifully written and evocative. Duras made me see, hear, and smell the street that the bachelor's quarters were on. She made me see and feel the love between these two young people, which the film did not. However, I found the cinematic direction in the novel intrusive. It took me out of the immediacy of the story and annoyed me. Mostly, the book made me realize what a very disfunctional childhood Duras had, and I felt a great deal of sympathy for her as well as respect for the fact that she survived it so very well. ( )

I read The Lover and The Sea Wall a few years ago, and like them, this book goes over the childhood of a French girl living in French Indochina. As in The Lover, the book covers the affair of the young boarding school girl who meets an older Chinese man.

As ever, Marguerite Duras draws you in, and leaves the reader to judge the rather ambiguous, flawed, and ultimately human, characters. The child, as she is known in the book, is less innocent, but more vulnerable than in the Lover. Beaten by her brother and mother, she takes her chance to be loved, despite the taboo relationship. Her lover seems just as caught by his fate, the heir to a rich man, he has been betrothed for many years to a girl he does not know or love. In some ways, the child is stronger, she seems to control more of the relationship, whereas the lover, ultimately, is not strong enough to go against his father's wishes.

Written more in the style of a film script with filming suggestions added in by the author, the book seems to be darker, with a heavy sense of fatality hanging over the lovers. ( )
