3.0 étoiles sur 5 Challenging Read. If you liked True Detective, you may not necessarily like this book. 9 mai 2014
Par Computer Guy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
While True Detective sent many people to this book, this is not a book written in a contemporary style. Much like A Brief History of Time, this will be a book many people own and few have read. I doubt most people make it through one story.
It's an okay book, filled with atmosphere, foreboding and unease. The influences of Poe and Bierce are easy to see, as is the influencing of Lovecraft, Clark Ashton Smith, and The Arkham House authors and the trickle down to modern horror writers.
Like Lovecraft, the prose is melodramatic, bombastic, bordering on hysterical highs of existential terror, and filled with non-resolutions and hints of humanity's minimal awareness of the horrors of the universe. Unlike Lovecraft, it is mostly boring.
It is the literary equivalent of Citizen Kane: one can see the amazing effects it has had on all following authors, without necessarily being enjoyable in and of itself. Blasphemy, I know, but Kane bores me to tears. The difference between Kane and the new critical darling, Vertigo, is the difference between watching paint dry and being involved in a paint ball match. So too with The King in Yellow: it's a slog to read for enjoyment but a treasure trove for readers who want to play find-the-reference (for True Detective fans) or find-the-author-that-borrowed for readers of fantasy, Science Fiction and horror.
Of note, the last several stories in the collection would be difficult to categorize as genre fiction, and wind up being full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
If you want to read for enjoyment, I would look instead to Ambrose Bierce, who created Carcosa, but who has a contemporary feel or Lovecraft or his imitators. Bierce's An Occurrence at Owl Creek bridge influenced modern cinema so much so that m night shyamalan's oeuvre could be summed up as "wants to be Bierce of film writing." Bierce's non-fiction Devil's Dictionary is as fresh today as it was 110 years ago: happiness is “an agreeable sensation arising from contemplating the misery of another.”
In any case, buy the book not for its prose but for a trophy to be placed upon the shelf to indicate you are hip and in the know and be comfortable in the thought no one who wants to discuss it with you will have read it either.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Brilliant Beginning, Superfluous End 26 novembre 2012
Par Brett Talley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The King in Yellow is one of the most brilliant--and one of the most disappointing--collections of short stories I have ever read. The first five stories were tremendous, transcendent, stunning. I could not look away. The last few stories were woefully disappointing. It is clear to me that they were added solely to fill out a word count. It's disappointing, but it does not diminish the power of those five stories. Pick the book up and read those stories. You will not be disappointed.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Charming 28 mars 2014
Par A. McCrea - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This is a book far ahead of its time. Written and published in the 19th century, it combines fantasy, science fiction and narrative devices such as misdirection, unreliable narrators and the like, even what we would now call "metafiction." In addition to being fascinating as an historical document it's a great book on it's own. It is not a novel, exactly, but a series of interrelated stories, though the tone is such that it reads somewhat like a unitary work. To repeat myself, it's fascinating, on many levels. Highly recommended.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The King In Yellow 22 mars 2014
Par RODNEY DEMOTT - Publié sur Amazon.com

A fascinating group of short stories. The stories directly related to the title enmesh the reader in a world of surrealism that reminded me a bit of Thomas Pynchon's Gravity's Rainbow. Well worth the read.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A wonderful collection of disturbingly strange tales 21 mars 2014
Par Dark Mark - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I had read several of these stories in my youth but together they are a wonderful collection of disturbingly strange tales rounded off with a few stories of student romance in Paris which though not weird were interesting in their own right and would have been considered racy and decadent when the book was published. Read and admired by Lovecraft and Howard it clearly influenced their own great works.
