Description de l'ouvrage

3 septembre 2013
Across North America, flocks of birds hurl themselves into airplanes, causing at least a dozen to crash. Thousands of people die. Fearing terrorism, the United States government grounds all flights, and millions of travelers are stranded.

Among them are Reese and her debate team partner and longtime crush David, who are in Arizona when the disaster occurs. On their drive home to San Francisco, along a stretch of empty highway in the middle of the Nevada night, a bird flies into their headlights. The car flips over. When they wake up in a military hospital, the doctor won't tell them what happened, where they are--or how they've been miraculously healed.

Things become even stranger when Reese returns home. San Francisco feels like a different place with police enforcing curfew, hazmat teams collecting dead birds, and a strange presence that seems to be following her. When Reese unexpectedly collides with the beautiful Amber Gray, her search for the truth is forced in an entirely new direction-and threatens to expose a vast global conspiracy that the government has worked for decades to keep secret.

Adaptation is a bold contemporary science-fiction thriller from the acclaimed author of Ash.

Revue de presse

Praise for Adaptation:

A CBC Best Children's Books of 2013 selection
A 2013 Top Ten Rainbow Project Book

"Absolutely compelling...the reader is tugged along, just as confused and naively hopeful as Reese herself. A sharp twist at the climax makes everything that happened before an even more satisfying puzzle to unravel."
Horn Book

"Suspenseful, girl-powered, contemporary science fiction full of realistically diverse characters making realistic contemporary use of technology- plus hot kissing-make this book hard to resist."
VOYA

"[Adaptation] would do the X-Files proud..."

Booklist

"..Slot this on the shelf between Cory Doctorow's Little Brother and The X-Files."
Kirkus

"Lo invokes a paranoid X-Files sensibility here, layering conspiracy atop conspiracy and balancing ambitious twists with nuanced relationships that are ultimately as important to the sci-fi plotting as they are to the character development."
BCCB

5.0 étoiles sur 5 « ADAPTATION ♥ » 8 décembre 2013
Par Jordan "Wandering-World" TOP 500 COMMENTATEURS
Format:Broché
ADAPTATION est juste une monstrueuse histoire addictive. Je ne m'étais absolument pas préparé à dévorer le roman de cette manière. A chaque fois que je reprenais ma lecture (et cela ne m'est arrivé que deux fois, étant donné mon adoration pour cette histoire), je ne voyais pas le temps - ni les pages ! - passer. C'est juste un truc de dingue. Malinda Lo aborde ici des thèmes qui me tiennent tout particulièrement à cœur, qui sont à la fois dérangeants et angoissants, mais également irrésistibles et passionnants. Elle n'hésite pas non plus à mêler à son univers follement intrigant des histoires d'homo ou de bisexualité, chose qui m'a énormément plu. ADAPTATION n'est pas un coup de cœur, mais c'est un véritable coup de foudre. Jamais je n'aurais pensé vivre une telle expérience en entamant ce récit. Je suis encore sous le choc, là tout de suite. ADAPTATION est une petite bombe ♥
Dès les premières lignes (et je dis bien lignes et non pages, la nuance est ultra importante), nous sommes aspirés dans un ouragan de rebondissements et de surprises. On n'a même pas le temps de d'ouvrir le roman que nous sommes déjà pris aux tripes par tout ce qui arrive. C'était TELLEMENT bon. Haaaaaaa !!! Je n'arrive même pas à mettre de mots sur tout ce que j'ai ressenti. Les premiers chapitres d'ADAPTATION rendent l'histoire si enivrante et si obsédante que c'en est presque flippant. Comment une auteure peut-elle rendre son intrigue fascinante à ce point aussi rapidement ? C'est de la pure folie.

I've already read a few other of Malinda Lo's books (Ash and Huntress), and this story was not what you're used to from her, but nonetheless enjoyable. It's fast paced and you never get bored nor too rushed from it, and the twists jump at you unexpectandly.
I will look forward to the second part, which I think comes out in winter/spring 2013.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Really good..but not my favorite by Lo 18 octobre 2012
Par Stories & Sweeties - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Despite not being a huge sci-fi fan, I couldn't help having really high expectations for Adaptation. I am a HUGE fan of Malinda Lo's work. Her writing in Ash and Huntress is absolutely flawless and lush, her handling of all manner of love stories is so beautiful done, her intricate story-telling completely blows me away. So, yes---high expectations for Adaptation.

Well, I wouldn't say that I was disappointed. I did really enjoy Adaptation. I just didn't completely fall in love with it. The story was mind-boggling, intense, and extremely fast-paced through most of the book. While government conspiracy and men-in-black are usually two things that leave me bored, this was so well written that even these subjects kept me glued to the page.

Reese was really likeable and fun character to read. She was smart and head-strong, but still unsure in some aspects of her life. She's terrified of relationships because of her parents' divorce, so after a few years of warring with herself over feelings for her debate partner, David, she is knocked sideways (quite literally at first!) by her sudden intense feelings for Amber. Their relationship was a whirlwind to read. Very intriguing to see Reese grapple with this first experience and try to figure out what is happening inside her from the treatment she received in the military hospital. Amber is open and uninhibited and fun and Reese just kind of gets swept up. Still, the main theme of the story, being the mystery and conspiracy of what was happening with the birds and the military secrets kind of got thrown by the wayside while Reese went through all this. It almost started to feel like two different stories, a bit disjointed. We do get back to it, though and the secrets and lies and excitement start again. I loved Amber's character, but I have to admit I saw her part in the story coming a mile away. David, the other main player in this story, felt just a bit flat. I didn't feel a lot of connection between him and Reese, so when things were meant to be heating up between them, it felt a bit forced to me. The main storyline goes along in a somewhat predictable fashion, but it's still great fun watching it all unfold.

Adaptaion is a really interesting and entertaining story. Though I felt a few problems here and there and definitely wasn't blown out of my seat like with Lo's two previous stories, I appreciate the fact that she really went a complete 180 with her storytelling style and gave us something new. The ending left me excited to know what happens next, so I'll definitely be anticipating the next in the series when it comes out.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Promising Premise Falls Flat 30 avril 2013
Par NebraskaIcebergs - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Recently, I was asked to review Adaptation by Melinda Lo, especially with the view of it as a multicultural book. To me, it doesn't stack up as one; the ethnic characters seem token. Moreover, as science fiction goes, Adaptation isn't all that believable. The global conspiracy happens too fast and is too contrived. Incidentally, that's also about how I viewed the romance.

Adaptation does have a promising premise. Birds fall from the sky. The public panics, and within one day most stores and restaurants have run out of food and interstate traffic is shut down. On a lesser scale, a gas station is blown up by desperadoes-and, oh, the only supervising adult is shot and killed. Then, on the heels of all this strife our two heroes land themselves in an accident, are found by scientists or medical doctors who conduct experimental life-saving medical procedures on them, and now our two heroes have alien powers. Wow!

I was pulled in immediately by the falling birds, then pushed away by the instant panic. Birds really have fallen from the sky before, and it was treated as little more than a curiosity. It takes a lot more to send people into survival mode these days. If not for the instant panic, Adaptation might actually have worked for me because it does cover ground that I have not seen too often in current young adult novels. Too bad.

Another problem with Adaptation is that the conspiracy theory is the only conflict which held my attention. Given that the main character's dad is referenced maybe only three times, I never really cared whether Reese would accept a phone call from him after her accident. In fact, the only reason I can figure out why Reese's dad is even mentioned is to explain why Reese wants absolutely nothing ever to do with a relationship. And that gives the unneeded reason for one moment wanting to kiss her debate partner David and the next feeling glad when he doesn't. Seriously, conflicting feelings is very normal in budding relationships-and so could have existed even if Reese's parents were happily married. But then if not for those conflicting feelings, Reese might not have ever explored a relationship with a girl. Or so Lo would have us believe.

Now to the reason for my being asked to read Adaptation-the question of whether it constitutes multicultural fiction. So how diverse is it? Well, the bulk of the characters seem to consist of a typical Caucasian cast with two exceptions. Debate partner David is Asian, a fact Lo notes in the first few chapters but then never mentions again. There's also an Asian newscaster who receives a single mention. That these references to race occur early contribute to my seeing them as token. Lo seems to want to be diverse, in that she also includes a female President and a lesbian relationship. However, none seem natural or integral to the story.

Adaptation did hold promise. The first chapter contained all the elements that could make for riveting and diverse fiction. If only Lo could have kept up that momentum. Unfortunately, I found myself rushing through far too many of the middle chapters, many of which were bogged down by an uninspired romance and too many fantastical events.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Review - Adaptation 22 octobre 2012
Par Kris - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Action, conspiracies, and bizarre happenings lend an air of mystery and heightened tension to Adaptation. Once I picked up this book, I couldn't put it down until it ended, and even then I wanted to keep reading. There is so much going on, so much waiting to be revealed. I haven't watched the movie Birds, but once I read about the birds dying in flocks and causing the deaths of countless people, I freaked out. I was scared that there was some conspiracy going on that was making the birds attack people and that there was going to be a huge, horrific apocalyptic disaster. Of course, events didn't progress to that degree, though many things did happen that did freak me out. Like agent stalkers, crazy dreams, sneaking out late at night, and many reports of deaths, humans and birds alike.

What made this story for me is how the plot was unraveled. From the mysterious way the birds are behaving to the crash and the changes overcoming Reese and David and their subsequent reactions to these developments, the secret behind Project Plato drives the plot, keeping my eyes glued to the pages from start to finish. The detailed references to many government projects lends credibility to the story. I'm not big into conspiracist theories, so I don't know how relevant many of these are to today's world. As this book takes place either in an alternate reality of our world or in the future (with a female president), it doesn't need to be entirely relevant to the present. What matters is that all these acronyms and secret projects heighten the suspense and tension. If it did try to do more than that, I'd probably run away. I'm not good with these kinds of technical terms!

This is one book where I found it hard to sort out my feelings about the characters. I like Reese. She likes to keep her emotions secure and stable, which makes it hard for her to start a relationship. Her thing with Amber is pure chemistry. Neither Reese nor Amber are quick to open up about themselves, and it's cool with Reese. She doesn't expect to start a serious relationship until she gets into one, and when something happens to betray her feelings, she locks up immediately. Her feelings of not wanting to be hurt anymore than she already has been is something that I feel many of us can relate to. Amber is an enigma. I know that she's gorgeous and seemingly very self-assured, but there's not much more other than that until towards the end. I'm hoping to learn more about her in the sequel to Adaptation. I also want to see how Reese and David's new abilities turn out, and I want to see more of the two of them as an item. You don't see many Asian guys into YA Lit, much less Asian guys portrayed in such a positive light. He's sweet, funny, and super supportive. I like him, Asian or not.

I've heard great things about Malinda Lo's writing but haven't read any of her works until now. After this book, I'll definitely be reading more of her works, past and future. I can't wait to see where Malinda takes us next with the sequel to this book!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Character-Focused SciFi 11 octobre 2012
Par Andrea Thompson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I really enjoyed Adaptation, maybe for the very same reasons a lot of people might not feel as if it's a strong Science Fiction story. The reason is, the story focused more on the characters than the SciFi element. Adaptation is a story of what happens to Reese after she is treated at a secret government facility, the physical and mental changes she undergoes and how they affect her life, rather than being built around a world into which a character is inserted.

What I didn't expect when I read Adaptation was the "sub-plot" involving Reese and a burgeoning relationship with Amber. Maybe I'm getting off point in regards to the intention of the story, but I found myself focused and really invested in this relationship. Reese always considered herself, without direct thought, as heterosexual, and has feelings for her friend David. But when she meets and is attracted to Amber, Reese must acknowledge that her sexuality isn't as concrete as she thought. Through her characters, Lo gives some great insights in regards to sexuality.

Adaptation wasn't heavy with the science fiction element, but I did like where it went once that part started rolling. I can't say I was totally surprised by the revelations as to what happened to David and Reese, but I did enjoy it and the plot made sense.

Adaptation didn't blow me away, but I truly enjoyed it. For much of the story, I simply didn't want to put it down. I did feel as if the middle portion of the story did drag a bit as I was anxious for the characters to find out what was happening to them and get on with it. As for the ending? I liked it, but come on. The last paragraph felt as if it cut off mid scene. It's not that there was an epic cliffhanger. It felt incomplete. Having said that, I will definitely read book two.

If you enjoy young adult science fiction, light on the science fiction, Adaptation may be the book for you.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Adaptation 29 novembre 2012
Par Star @ The Bibliophilic Book Blog - Publié sur Amazon.com

Let me start out by saying I really liked Ms. Lo's fantasy novels, so I was excited to see her get into the science-fiction realm. `Adaptation' starts out with a bang as possibly up to one hundred airplanes crash over all of North America. Reese, her debate partner and longtime crush, David, and their debate team coach are now stranded at the airport in Arizona. When they decide to drive back to San Francisco, things get crazy. Their coach is murdered in front of them and they end up in a car crash somewhere in Nevada. Waking up a month later in a military hospital, Reese and David are healed from their injuries and released back to their families. However, something has fundamentally changed within Reese and David and now they're searching for answers...what are they and is the truth out there?

I enjoyed `Adaptation' very much and I think readers are expecting all this scientific jargon, of which there is some, but Ms. Lo's novels work so well because they are character driven. I felt for Reese's struggle to figure out the strange dreams and experiences she's having related to the aftermath of the car crash, as well as dealing with her intense feelings for a girl she just met, Amber. I was drawn to Reese's character and her quest to find out the truth. While I would consider `Adaptation' to be light science fiction, the characters bring the story to life and I'd be interested in seeing what happens next with Reese, David, and Amber.
