Revue de presse

Praise for Jasper Fforde and THE LAST DRAGONSLAYER books (:-)

'Highly recommended. Very funny' (Independent)

'[Fforde's] ripping yarn of magic in decline mashes up the usual spells-and-beasts motif with a satire on corporate cash and tabloid values.' (i)

'This year's grown-up JK Rowling' (Sunday Times)

'True literary comic genius' (Sunday Express)

I love to dive into Jasper Fforde's books. They're wildly imaginative but he makes you believe every word. Where else can you encounter a ditzy dodo, a deadly chimera and a straight-as-an-arrow detective investigating what really happened to Humpty Dumpty? Great stuff. (David Baldacci)

Présentation de l'éditeur

The Mighty Shandar, the most powerful wizard the world has ever seen, returns to the Ununited Kingdoms. Clearly, he didn't solve the Dragon Problem, and must return his fee: eighteen dray-weights of gold.

But the Mighty Shandar doesn't do refunds, and vows to eliminate the dragons - unless sixteen-year-old Jennifer Strange and her sidekicks from the Kazam house of enchantment can bring him the legendary jewel, The Eye of Zoltar.

The only thing that stands in their way is a perilous journey with a 50% Fatality Index - through the Cambrian Empire to the Leviathan Graveyard, at the top of the deadly Cadair Idris mountain. And it's a quest that sees Jennifer fighting not just for her life, but for everything she knows and loves . . .

Il faut lire tout Jasper Fforde, c'est un génie. Impossible à résumer, et il vaut mieux commencer au début de la série sur la chasseuse de dragons. Encore des personnages hilarants (la future reine spécialiste de constructions financières est tout à fait délicieuse ! ) et des inventions délirantes (les escargots voyageurs). Formidable.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Third among sequels ... 17 mai 2014
Par Nils Gustaf Lindgren - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Sorry about that, I quite like the Thursday Next books and am a huge fan of Fforde. This said, EoZ is the third in a series of books aimed at youngsters in early teens I'd guess - the Harry Potter bracket, right, and I m definitely not there, age-wise, having decades of experience inbeing young. This book, well, this book appears to be written a bit in a hurry, and contains a McGuffin, and a terrible loss (no spoilers) to one of the persons, which appear to completely pass over the head of said person in a manner that is to me incomprehensible. If you have read #1 and #2, you will be required to read this one, but, apart from some nice banter and cliffhangers, it is so far the weakest link in the chain.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great new book in a series which is definitively NOT a trilogy 20 octobre 2014
Par Andrew C Wheeler - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
It's a real treat to watch a skilled writer flash his cards once and then pocket them: he's secure in the knowledge that you saw and noticed them, and you know that those few specific and casually-dropped references will pay off in the end. And seeing a writer do it in a book for young adults is doubly nice, since it shows that writer has faith in his young readers; even if they haven't read as many books yet as their grizzled elders, they can pick up the hints and piece it all together.

The third book in Jasper Fforde's "Chronicles of Kazam" series, THE EYE OF ZOLTAR, has those pleasures and more. It follows The Last Dragonslayer and The Song of the Quarkbeast and will have at least one more book to complete the series -- not to put too fine a point on it, but ZOLTAR has more of a stopping point than an ending. It's not a cliffhanger -- anyone near a precipice is either safely away or assuredly fallen to their doom -- but it clearly calls for another book.

Things seem to be relatively normal as this book opens: Kazam Mystical Arts Management is left as the only magical company in the Ununited Kingdoms, after the failed schemes of their rival, the Amazing Blix, in the previous books. Sure, Kazam's interim manager, Jennifer Strange, has to quickly organize an expedition to capture a dangerous Tralfamosaur and send it off to the wild neighboring Cambrian Empire, but that goes off relatively smoothly. She does have to sacrifice her beloved Volkswagen Beetle as the bait that lured the Tralfamosaur, but Kazam's headquarters Zambini Towers has dozens of working vehicles in its basement that she can use instead.

Unfortunately, the Cambrian Empire has a thriving business in ransom -- practically the only thriving business in the Cambrian Empire, besides danger tourism -- and the Once Magnificent Boo (in her youth, one of the great wizards of the world; since the theft of her wizidrical index fingers, a misanthropic expert on nasty beasts) has been kidnapped while trying to settle the Tralfamosaur.

Even worse, the greatest wizard of all time, the Mighty Shandar, is unhappy with Jennifer, because she upset one of his greatest achievements. Centuries before -- Shandar spends most of his time in stone, to prolong his life, and only emerges to work -- he took a very lucrative job to rid the world of all dragons. Jennifer foiled that plan in the first book; there are now two young dragons, who will grow and eventually reproduce. But Shandar has a proposal: if Jennifer finds the Eye of Zoltar for him -- a powerful dark magical talisman lost for ages -- he'll forgive the transgression. If not, he'll have to attack the dragons, and anyone who tries to stand in his way -- such as Jennifer and the entire staff of Kazam -- will be destroyed along the way.

By an amazing coincidence, the only clue to the Eye's location is also deep in the Cambrian Empire. So Jennifer sets off in an old tanklike Bugatti Royale, armed with a letter of credit and everything everyone knows about the Eye, which is practically nothing. With her are Perkins, a wizard who's just passed his exams and who might be her boyfriend if things ever settle down, and Laura Scrubb, the brain of the spoiled Princess Shazza placed into the body of her handmaiden for a while so she can learn a little humility and useful skills.

The Cambrian Empire is a dangerous wilderness, populated primarily by squabbling ransom-happy tribes and a wide variety of extremely deadly fauna. It's also cut off almost entirely from the outside world: all air traffic (including birds) is shot down at the border on orders of the Emperor, and no news from beyond the borders is allowed in. But Jennifer's hard-bitten and experienced guide -- who is approximately twelve -- declares that she can give their team 50% odds of survival: a good half of them will make it out alive.

And then things get really hairy....

THE EYE OF ZOLTAR is a slight departure in style for this series: the first two book were each like an escalating juggling act, with complications piling on top of each other until a final crisis threatened everything. This time out, Fforde uses a more linear one-damn-thing-after-another plot, as Jennifer's expedition gains and loses members and fights through more travails and dangers than can be described here. But all along, there are those little hints -- a close reader will be able to guess what else is going on at the same time, and how it all fits together. I wouldn't recommend any reader start the series with this book, since it depends heavily on the earlier ones -- and the impatient should probably wait until the next volume is out as well. But it's a heartfelt, funny fantasy novel for teens with a great main character, a quirky world, and a deep sense of how the world isn't fair but can be made better by hard work and clear sight. And, as usual, I mean "for teens" to mean anyone who ever was one, or is close enough to being one.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 High adventure, witty absurdities 15 octobre 2014
Par Jaylia - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
This is the third in Jasper Fforde’s YA series featuring Jennifer Strange, the competent 16-year-old running an agency of magicians in the Ununited Kingdom, a highly skewed alternate world UK. Jennifer’s the kind of girl who takes disasters in stride, which is fortunate because just as she is about to have her first date she and her young man have to alter their plans to act as bait for a crazed dinosaur-sized magical creature on a rampage, and almost immediately after they must embark on a quest across the border with a petulant self-absorbed princess in tow to find the Eye of Zoltar, though they’re be careful to not refer to their expedition as a quest because that would bring on reams of paperwork and substantial fees.

Romance is not Fforde’s strong suit, but brilliant not quite absurd absurdities with frequent enough wisps of truth to make them irresistibly funny are, and that’s on full display here. I’ve been missing the Neanderthals from the early books of Fforde’s wonderful Thursday Next series (a favorite of mine because it’s full of literary references) so I was thrilled to find a new Australopithecus character here. There’s a satisfying ending to Eye of Zoltar, but the good news is it’s a to-be-continued story so there will be at least one more of these books packed with nonstop action, strong female characters, unrelenting wit.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Absolutely NOT about a quest 19 octobre 2014
Par mickey71 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
I didn't enjoy this book quite as much as the first two in the series, but that doesn't mean it wasn't still a four-star read.

In this volume, Jennifer Strange leaves Zambini Towers for the Cambrian Empire, hoping to find a magical whatsit called the Eye of Zoltar. Seems the Great Shandar is annoyed that there are two dragons left alive, because it breaks his contract and might require him to issue a refund. So if Jennifer wants the dragons to live, she has to find the Eye for Shandar. Seems simple, but with extreme dangers, a child guide, a dragon turned into rubber, and a rude princess body-swapped with a handmaiden, nothing is easy. And as usual, nothing is what it seems. What is the real purpose of sending Jennifer on a search that is definitely NOT a quest? Will she and Perkins ever get to go an actual date?

I looked briefly at my review for book 2, Song of the Quarkbeast, and was surprised to see I had compared that book to Douglas Adams...because I didn't remember writing that, but I definitely got the Adams vibe from this book. Again, I know these books are aimed at younger readers, but they're also a lot of fun for adults.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hideously funny as ever 16 avril 2014
Par hase4711 - Publié sur Amazon.com

And while the story seems to be predictable at times, it isn't.

Wonderful fun, pointy irony, and Fforde makes the surreal appear so completely normal.
Which in turn makes reality look surreal - which it is, when you think about it.

I love it and recommend the paperbak edition: this will have one goof in the plot corrected.
