Revue de presse

* "Weaving African tribal language and lore . . . into a rich tapestry featuring a witty projection of the future, a score of vividly realized characters, and a nonstop adventure culminating in a denouement that's at once taut, comic, and touching, Farmer has created a splendidly imaginative fantasy." --KIRKUS, starred review
* "This tale overflows with wise insights, lessons and observations about the ties between heritage and family." --PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, starred review
* "In its fundamental suspense and appeal the book bears an odd but satisfying resemblance to The Wizard of Oz--witches, scarecrows, and all." --THE BULLETIN OF THE CENTER FOR CHILDREN'S BOOKS, starred review

Présentation de l'éditeur

This Newbery Honor book by award-winning, bestselling author Nancy Farmer is being reissued in paperback!

The year is 2194, and Tendai, Rita, and Kuda are the children of Zimbabwe's wealthy and powerful chief of security. They've escaped from their father's estate to explore the dangerous city of Harare--and promptly disappear. Their parents call in the Ear, the Eye, and the Arm, detectives whose exposure to nuclear waste has given them special powers. Together they must save the children from the evils of the past, the technology of the future, and criminals with plans much more sinister than anyone could have imagined.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Nancy Farmer: Sci-fi children's author extraordinaire 1 janvier 2004
Par E. R. Bird - Publié sur
The best futuristic sci-fi tale for children set in Zimbabwe I've ever read. Which is unfair backhanded praise for a book that, in my opinion, should've been awarded the Newberry Award without question. Sometimes I like to pretend that I'm at a party and a savvy Hollywood producer comes up to me and asks for the number one children's book that should be optioned for a movie. Batta bing, I recommend this book. In it, you have a well-developed plot containing characters of amazing depth. No two-dimensional stick figures for this children's novel. The setting is more than unique. It is unparalleled. Farmer's ingenuity has created a book that speaks volumes. Not only is it an enjoyable edge-of-your-seat mystery, but there's a distinctly moral core to the book. It's the rare story that can make a person actually enjoy a section on (believe it or not) "courage". If your children can read, give them this book. If your children cannot read, give them this book anyway and teach them to do so with it. There is no higher praise I can give.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A MUST READ BOOK! 15 novembre 1999

Format:Belle reliure
This is a terrific book. It is set in the future in Africa. Tendai, Rita, and Kuda who are the sons and daughter of Amadeus Matsika, the country's Cheif of Security. Matsika has wiped out almost all of the gangs except one, the Masks. After being kidnapped by the She Elephant, Tendai, Rita, and Kuda have to find a way home or they might fall victim to a terrible fate. They finally escape with the help of Trashman, a man in his twenties with the mind of a small child. They are taken to a place called Resthaven. Resthaven is like a small country, but it is set in the past. They live in the ways of the ancestors. After the children are found missing, Matsika's wife hires three private eyes, literally. These three have special powers. One has super strong eyes, another super strong ears, and finally super long limbs. As this story unfolds, see how the tale of Tendai, Rita, and Kuda changes your perspective on life.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Sci-Fi Suspense Thriller! 29 août 2005
Par Marcia Kramer - Publié sur
This is the greatest book I have ever read. I have never read any other Nancy Farmer book before, but I automatically fell in love with it. Usually I can't finish a regular chapter book, but in the course of 5 days I fniished the whole, entire book. Here's the plot without giving anything away: It is Zimbabwe, 2194, and children of the Chief of Security who live a sheltered life, embark on a magical and suspenseful adventure which includes getting kidnapped by a drug and alcohol ring, being enslaved in a toxic wasteland, going back in time to a traditional African village and making friends with a giant and funny mentally challenged man. Since these children went on this adventure without their parents permission, the parents think the children are missing and call upon the world's three greatest sleuths, the Eye (who can see so clearly he can see how the world is made up molecules, particles and atoms) the Ear (who can hear a scream or a whisper from thirty miles away) and the Arm (who has unhuman emotional instincts). Both the children and the detectives adventures will intertwine with Shona mythology and will embark on an amazing journey through a digitalized Zimbabwe of the future and the preserved Zimbabwe of the past.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The 3 Stooges Meet The Witch Doctor 24 mars 2007
Par Margaret Fiore - Publié sur
The Ear, the Eye, and the Arm is one of my all-time favorite books. And I don't mean just one of my all-time favorite KID books. It is rich and complex and imaginative enough for any adult reader to savor.

This story manages to blend and blur comedy with creepy, supernatural and surrealistic horror, cultural legend with a private detective story, far future with distant past, and science fiction with social insight. This is done with a cast of characters that are all splendidly drawn and recognizable, KNOWABLE human beings. From the 3 children at the heart of the adventure, to the mutated, talented, and absolutely luckless 3 private eyes charged with saving them, the characters are all clear, laughable, flawed, and loveable.

Tendai is smart and imaginative, but doubts his own personal courage. Rita, his chubby little sister, is spoiled and self-centered, but strong-minded. Kuda, their little brother, is tough and curious, but has no ability to measure consequences before acting. Escaping from the ultra-safety of their wealthy parents' beautiful but claustrophobic estate, they have mere moments of freedom before they fall into the hands of organized criminals.

They end up finding help from unlikely sources - the Trashman, a homeless tramp that cannot talk, the She-Elephant, the criminal queen of the tunnels of the radioactive dumpheap - but of course, most of all from their own unsuspected resourcefulness and determination, and at last from the 3 private detectives for whom the book is titled, who get everywhere, of course, always a bit too late...

The story line is anything but simple. The children escape from one danger only to fall prey to another, but danger comes not only from expected directions. Repeatedly they seem to have fought free, only to find that they are in a new kind of trap. Farmer effortlessly draws new environments and social structures in each segment of the adventure - all convincing and rich and real.

In Farmer's so-believable post-apocalyptic Zimbabwe, there are many of the same cultural influences of modern time - the Matsikas are immersed in the history of their land, the "Mellower" and his family are utterly British, and the cities and the slums are what they have always been, with the addition of the delicate changes of futuristic radiation-based diseases and mutations. The jewel-like world of Resthaven, hidden and walled away in the middle of the city, makes a poignant argument for the simpler ways of the past - and for the very real improvements which only the painful changes of the modern world have enabled.

This book can be "just fun" for any kid to read. But it is chock full of so much more for the perception of readers at all levels. The names and the language of each character are filled with cross-cultural humor, and background details invite flights of imagination. It is a hugely satisfying book to read, and to re-read. I recommend it for anyone. And everybody.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Ear the Eye and the Arm 14 décembre 2005
L'évaluation d'un enfant - Publié sur
The Ear the Eye and the Arm is an engaging science fiction novel. This book is a wonderful novel for all ages to read. It all starts out in Zimbabwe in the year 2194 AD. General Matsika's three children are kidnapped and put to work in a plastic mine while three mutant detectives use their special powers to search for them.

I enjoyed the part when the three children successfully escape the Dead Man's Vlei because I thought that the She Elephant was a horrible, unattractive old woman. I also took pleasure in the part that Arm decided to be the father of Seki. I thought this was very thoughtful of him.

My least favorite part in the story was when there was a fighting scene in Mr. Thirsty's illegal beer hall. Eye was almost shot with a nirvana gun, but instead fainted because Mr. Thirsty blocked the shot with a food tray. There was another scene in the book when the blue monkey bit Ear and injured him badly. I thought that these parts were inappropriate for young readers.

The mission of the Ear, Eye, and Arm takes them from the underbelly of the city to the swaying top of the Mile-High Macllwaine Hotel. Yet the children stay just out of their reach. The evils of the past, the technology of the future, criminals with plans way beyond what anyone can ever dream of. Will the Matsika children escape from the center of it all?

I believe that this story allows young children to see into the future and imagine what it will look like. I also feel that this book shows kids to be more careful around people they have never met and to watch out for outsiders because they can be evil humans like the She Elephant. You will have to read on to take pleasure in the book The Ear the Eye and the Arm.
