'Hell is other people' 6 décembre 2004
Par E. A. Lovitt - Publié sur
Format: Broché
It is a rare occurrence for me to read a book straight through from sunset to sunrise, but "The Hollow Man" deserved that kind of attention, even though it is very grim reading--in Dan Simmon's world, it is better to be brain-damaged than normal, drunk or drugged rather than sober, possibly dead rather than alive.

After his wife dies, Simmon's telepathic hero descends into a peculiarly American hell of gangsters, cardboard cities, rabid gangs, child molesters, and serial killers--there are many references to Dante in this book, and although Sartre isn't directly quoted, I'd guess that the main message of "The Hollow Man" is 'Hell is other people.'

What can a brilliant mathematician do when his perfect relationship with his telepathic wife ends with her death? He can commit suicide quickly or commit suicide slowly. Jeremy Bremen tries both ways.

I didn't even try to follow the equations in this book. I had my fill of diffie q's when I was in college. You might be interested in figuring out whether the author is merely waving his hands over the math and science, or whether he is truly attempting to make a case for the creation of new universes every time we commit to an action--whether it is something as simple as sitting down or remaining on our feet. Somewhere in the swiftly branching universes, Jeremy Bremen's wife didn't get brain cancer and die. Another, much older scientist who may be the only one who understands Jeremy's equations, gets the notion that he can find a universe that didn't experience the Holocaust of WWII, and where his family didn't die in the Ravensbruck concentration camp.

He kills himself.

"The Hollow Man" splits its chapters between Jeremy's hellish adventures after his wife dies, and flashbacks to happier days when she was alive and he was solving the mysteries of the universe. The poignancy is almost too difficult to bear, but Simmons is a good author and he makes you want to follow Jeremy to his quietus. Another character, a boy who was born blind, deaf, and mute and who is viciously abused by his mother and her live-in boyfriends, also narrates parts of the story. How Jeremy's universe and the universe of the handicapped boy overlap is the highlight and climax of "The Hollow Man."

I think this book does fall in the middle ground . . . 6 mars 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
. . . despite the "love it or hate it" theme of the rest of the reviews on this page. I don't think this is a great book, but neither is it as bad as some of the other reviewers have posted. Bad one star books are the formulaic garbage cranked out by too many publishers these days. This isn't one of those. At least there are some thought provoking ideas in this book, and for me the best part was the romance between the telepathic married couple. Imagine the possibilities (and the difficulties). I think Simmons handled that part very well, while other parts didn't work for me. Such as the "look everybody, I did my research" mathematics formulae scattered throughout, which the average reader will not understand or care about. Doing the research is important, but I think it was overdone for this book. I would say that this is not a good place to start with Simmons, but for someone who has read his better books and wants more, there are much worse ways to spend an evening than reading this. Nobody hits a home run every time they step up to the plate.

The Hollow Man is Amazing! 23 août 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
After reading the other comments on this page I realise that this may not be everybody's idea of a fantastic novel. However, if you have enjoyed Simmons previously and/or you would like to read something truly original, try this. This novel certainly lives up to Dan Simmons reputation as being perhaps the most dynamic author of our, or any, time. This book, the story of Jeremy, who loses his way after the death of his wife only to, eventually, rediscover himself, his wife and the secret of life and death itself, is one of the strangest and most brilliant works of fiction in existence. I can only guess that the authors of the negative comments on this page must simply have failed the understand the massive scope of the journey that Simmons had led them on. Perhaps second only to Summer of Night, although I am yet to read Children of the Night or any of The Hyperion Cantos.

reinforces what a creative genius Simmons is 4 juin 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book grabbed me by the eyeballs - like the best of S.King/R. Bachman - and didn't let go until the very end. A wild ride - thought provoking and well-conceptualized throughout. An on-the-road type book, the protaganist travels from Philly to Disneyworld to the deserts to Las Vegas to... and deals with lots of intense violence and good sickening horror. And reminisces about l-o-v-e on the way to stir the reader in a different way. I liked the Hyperion series a lot - Hollow Man was easier to read (maybe because it is earthbound?) and I liked it just as much (if not better). Only disappointment (which some may like a lot), too much math and physics. Otherwise great stuff.

I Think, Therefore I Am 6 août 2010
Par Franklin the Mouse - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Mr. Simmons is arguably one of the most intelligent, unorthodox writers kicking around out there. The book is truly a thinking person's story under the guise of science fiction/horror. He smartly interjects explanations, in laymen's terms, of quantum physics which is vital to understanding what transpires at the end. The ability to read others' thoughts is both a plus and a minus. The protagonist, Jeremy Bremen, must be one of the unluckiest people on the planet. Even with such a powerful mental tool at his disposal, the guy stumbles into more than his fair share of nasty situations. A lesser author might have played it safe and simply had Jeremy go through oodles of heroic adventures. But Mr. Simmons upped the ante by making the reader question mortality, the world around us and the existence of God. A morose mood permeates this work. Heck, another pivotal character named Robby is a blind, deaf, mentally-challenged kid who could be the poster child for "Life Sucks." At points, it becomes downright grueling to read about Jeremy's and Robby's ordeals. Avoid reading this baby if it's a gloomy, grey day or you're in a funk.
