Présentation de l'éditeur

Adam Griffey is living two lives. By day, he teaches literature. At night, he steals it. Adam is a plagiarist, an expert reader with an eye for great works. He prowls simulated worlds perusing virtual texts, looking for the next big thing. And when he finds it, he memorizes it page by page, line by line, word for word. And then he brings it back to his world.

But what happens when these virtual worlds begin to seem more real than his own? What happens when the people within them mean more to him than flesh and blood? What happens when a living thing falls in love with someone who does not actually exist?

Biographie de l'auteur

Hugh Howey spent 8 years working as a yacht captain. When he was pulled away from the sea by the love of his life, he turned to his childhood dream of becoming an author. His Molly Fyde series has won praise from reviewers, and now his Wool series has become a #1 bestseller, with Random House publishing in the UK and Ridley Scott and Steve Zaillian securing the film rights. He lives in Jupiter, Florida with his wife Amber and their dog Bella.

This is the third book I've read from Hugh Howey and I'v noticed he has an uncanny knack for building a story around one interesting and unique idea. In Wool it was people living in a post apocalyptic silo with one view of the outside world that may or may not be real. In Half Way Home it was a unique twist on planet colonization. The Plagiarist tells a story based on computer simulations that allow the user to "jack in" and explore computer created worlds. That idea in itself isn't too terribly original but how our protagonist Adam spends his time in the virtual world is. Definitively worth a buck.

Totally a fan of Hugh Howey. Sci-fi at its best with some darn good haiku.

This was a great short story. One that I voraciously read because I simply loved the subject matter.
As I was reading it gave me such a "What if?" kind of feel to it. And the ending just blew me away.

In honor of Hugh and his excellent story...a haiku.

Hugh Howey wows me
Haiku and science fiction
A splendid marriage

This is a well written, thought provoking gem of a novella. If you have 99 cents and about 45 minutes to spare, this is a great way to spend them. The story has good characters, great pacing and a satisfying ending. Themes include how we interact with technology and what the world will look like as technology continues to influence society. The novella is interesting and entertaining and i highly recommend it.

To Amazon's staff,

This is a letter of complaint. I'm not used to the act of denouncing anyone, or of pointing out abuse of any kind, as I've always considered it none of my business but that of official authorities. However, in the present case, I find myself compelled, or should I say under the obligation, to say something.
I know that a certain Hugh Howey has entertained quite a level of success recently, what with his famous series "Wool" and his latest novel "I, Zombie". Even I, I regret to say, fell for these books, which are undeniably true works of art. Even I, though it pains me to confess it today, marvelled at the man's genius. But no longer.
Because I've found out the truth about him, and the most outrageous part of his scam is that he exposes it openly, for all to see, in the novella aptly entitled "The Plagiarist". Over the past few years, Mr. Howey has found a way to plug into a virtual, digital world (don't ask me how, this is completely beyond me), in which sentient beings live, go to work, drink, eat, probably have physical intercourse... And produce works of art. Amazing works of art. Like books. Books that Mr. Howey committed to memory and rewrote shamelessly once he came back to the real world.
How else to explain that each of his books is so great? He can't have written them alone. I figured there had to be some kind of explanation. At first I thought it had to be some kind of workshop, similar to those many suspect Shakespeare to have set up. The answer may be more futuristic, but the crime is the same. What a clever little fellow, you have to give him that. For not getting caught (yet), for one thing. And for putting out works that share common traits, so you wouldn't be tempted to doubt their single origin. In "The Plagiarist", there's that same obsession for words, communication and seclusion that is there in "Wool", "I, Zombie" or the Molly Fyde series. There's the same quality of writing, a flawless prose that leads you to read for hours on end. There's that same depth turning an already thrilling narrative into something more...
But I should stop there, as I feel that if that letter was ever to be published, it may offer this despicable scam artist more publicity than anything else. I'll make sure to read his next books to keep you all posted on his mascarade, as I consider it now a form of duty to expose this scoundrel for what he is.

In the hope that my humble message opened your eyes,
Sincerely yours,
A devoted reader.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Worlds apart from reality. 2 avril 2012
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Now here's a short story with a blend of good writing and editing combined with a liberal dose of imagination and an added peppering of true love, the resulting concoction being oh-so-enjoyable on the palette. Short and sweet, this one transports you to another reality; and although being somewhat predictable, it leaves you thinking. A solid 4 star read.
