Revue de presse

"Dripping in blood, this is a story of family secrets so terrible that they shouldn't be uncovered." (Guardian)<br ><br >"Red-blooded fiction at its most seductive." (Sunday Telegraph)<br ><br >"Delightfully eccentric . . . a strangely moving portrait of a marriage." (The Financial Times)<br ><br >"

A sharp, bloody tale of abstinence and indulgence (and

trying not to eat the neighbours).

" (Steven Hall, author of The Raw Shark Texts)<br ><br >"Reality bites in a funny family affair. . . pointed, clever and witty." (Kim Newman Independent)<br ><br >"A witty and humane story about a family of vampires living in respectable English suburbia." (Daily Mail)<br ><br >"Haig's very original spin on the [vampire] myth is insightful, frightening and uplifting." (The Guardian)<br ><br >"Smart, snappy, quirky . . . as much a satire on self-denying suburban life as a straightforward bloodthirsty tale." (Scotsman)<br ><br >"Ratchets up the pace and the tension until the taut conclusion. Bloody good fun." (SFX Magazine)<br ><br >"Switches deftly between a classic Carrie-style narrative of teen difference, in which the kids are teased for their outsiderness, and a parental tale of mid-life crisis." (Herald)<br ><br >"Great fun, with much enjoyment derived from the placing of these ancient bloodsuckers in dull English suburbia." (Vogue)<br ><br >"Haig writes in addictive, bitesize chapters that pump the action along... All vampire fiction has a strong sexual element, but in this book, the passion's not just for the pale-faced teens." (Daily Mail)<br ><br >"Haig has managed to coax something delightfully new and, unusually, rather English from a saturated genre... [He] combines strong dialogue with a healthy sense of self-parody in a novel that should appeal to all vampire fans, whatever their age." (Metro)<br ><br >"A witty introduction to present-day vampire lore... Highly recommended." (Observer)<br ><br >"vampire fans will find lots to enjoy, but it's the blackly comic dissection of the family that makes this book stand out." (The Guardian)<br ><br >"Witty as well as deep." (Books for Keeps)<br ><br >"The 'some adult content' coverline gives due warning that teen readers might be bored by adults holding dinner parties and contemplating affaris, but the story should carry them through such longueurs." (Books for Keeps)<br ><br >"Shot through with wry humour, Haig's lively family saga, replete with sexual frissons and distinctly subversive undercurrents, is carried off with aplomb" (Guardian) --The Financial Times

"[A] life-affirming comedy" (Independent) --Independent

"Written in short, juicy chapters this life-affirming comedy will particularly appeal to older teens" (Emma Hagestadt The Independent) --Independent

Présentation de l'éditeur

Meet the Radleys. Peter, Helen and their teenage children, Clara and Rowan, live in a typical suburban English town. They are an everyday family, averagely dysfunctional, averagely content. But, as their children have yet to find out, the Radleys have a devastating secret. In this moving, thrilling and extraordinary portrait of one unusual family, The Radleys asks what we grow into when we grow up, and explores what we gain – and lose – when we deny our appetites.

Ayant trop lu de bit-lit ces derniers temps et étant un peu "dégoûtée" du genre, j'ai pris ce roman en main en m'attendant à de la déception....
Et quelle surprise, finalement, de lire un livre dans lequel les vampires ne sont pas "sexy à mourir" mais plutôt une petite famille bourgeoise d'une banlieue anglaise.
Le vampirisme est davantage, ici, une symbolique. Symbolique d'un état humain au cours duquel on doit faire des choix... Parfois extrêmes.
Bref, ce dont parle ce roman : famille, adolescence, liens humains, comportements extrêmes, choix, amour etc.
...
Une jolie surprise qui se lit vraiment très facilement en VO : vu la différence de prix, n'hésitez vraiment pas à vous lancer dans l'écriture originale de Matt Haig.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very well done. 7 septembre 2010
Par Steven R. McEvoy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Much like the Harry Potter books, there are two editions of this book. The first one is for adults and the other one is for teens. They have radically different covers and cover blurbs. I really did not think something new could be written about vampires that would be unique enough, and a different enough take on old tales and legends and the plethora of vampire literature out there, to surprise me. I could not have been more wrong. This book not only surprised me but left me with a hunger for more. Matt Haig reshapes vampire mythology; there are two classes of vampires and two types of vampires in his re-imaging of this genre. First, someone is either born a vampire from a family of vampires or they are turned by a vampire. The two types of vampires are those who practice abstinence and those who are full-blooders. Enter the Radleys, a quiet if somewhat sickly family living in the small British village of Bishopthorpe. Meet the Radleys: Peter, Helen and their two teenage children Clara and Rowan. They seem to be the typical dysfunctional family, but with a few more medical conditions than the most of their neighbors. But their family secret blows wide open when Clara not only tastes blood but devours the first person she tastes. When the Radleys need to cover up this incident, Peter calls his older brother Will, and soon everything seems to be falling apart.

This book is creative and unique, which as stated earlier, in this genre is truly amazing. It is well written; you find yourself cheering for the vampires and hoping they can pull it all together and figure out a better way to live. You have a mix of vampires, curious neighbors, a special police unit dedicated to controlling and negotiating with the vampire hierarchy and a family just trying to protect each other. Matt Haig has created a new type of vampire novel and like Anne Rice years ago, maybe one that will be emulated, and copied again and again but never really duplicated. Well done. Let's raise a glass to Matt and to the Radleys! Cheers!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Vampire book for all of us in our 40s 29 décembre 2010
Par BookBob - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
When I received this book I thought oh another vampire book. But then I started to read it and it was so much more. What I liked most about this story was how human the vampires were in the story. They fall in love they marry they have children and they eventually die. This story is about the vampire family the Radleys at the begining of the story their two children do not even know they are vampires. The Parents want to be a typical middle class normal British family and they think by not telling their children about their heritage it will cause them to be normal. This will serously back fire and that is the begining of this wonderful story. I really enjoyed this story because as a middle age man who has been married for 20 years and has teenage children I found Peter very easy to indentify with. If you want something good to read that will make you think this is the book to read.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Very clever idea, very borning in parts 17 avril 2011
Par Desert Rat - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I was intrigued by this plot description, very different from the spate of other vampire films and books. So I gave it a try by getting the Kindle Sample. The beginning was quite clever and amusing, so I went ahead and bought the book.

The plot was sufficiently interesting to keep me going, but unfortunately, between any action, there were countless pages of boring vampire lore, none of which was in the slightest interesting or germane to the plot. Why the author felt this was necessary I don't know, but possibly to satisfy the teenager vampire fans.

Had this been edited out, the book would have been far better. Of course, that problem was solved by just quickly paging though these sections.

A fun read, but not really worth the price.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Vampire Family Soap Opera 27 janvier 2011
Par Patricia Altner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Dark humor pervades this entertaining vampire family soap opera. While Helen was engaged to Peter Radley, his rougish brother Will secretly whisks her off for one sex filled, "vampire conversion" night in Paris. Helen discovers she is pregnant and tells Peter the baby is his. This happened 17 years ago. That is when the Radleys (Helen and Peter) decided to live like normal people and follow the guidelines set down by the Abstainer's Handbook, a book written for those who no longer wish to live the traditional vampire life. Complications arise as their two children Rowan - biological son of Will, and daughter Clara begin to acquire vampire characteristics. Clara is the first to change when one night a thuggish classmate attacks her. The fangs erupt on their own and Clara does what any vampire lass would naturally do - she drains him dry. This is when Helen finally agrees with Peter that it is time to explain their heritage to the children.

At first the Radleys seem to be a terribly dysfunctional family, but soon enough each of them shows a depth not apparent in the beginning. They learn to pull together when outside forces attempt to destroy them. Ultimately this is a story about family and love.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Read it. Today. 9 avril 2011
Par Sara E. Bauer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Ah, the cleverness of Mr. Haig! The Radleys tackles a similar subject as a couple of its modern contemporaries (ie Twilight series): that of vampires who do not drink human blood---vampires who are trying to fit in with society. This one is a bit different, though, because the Radley family is fully immersed in modern society and fully immersed in their delusions that their ploy could actually stick. What I found most interesting was the children; the Radley parents have hidden their vamp identities from their kids, which makes the kids wonder why they get sick when they go out in the sun, why they can't be vegetarians, etc, etc. And the writing is excellent. Example: "His lower intestines spilled out of him, like escaping eels." Ooo ... that's pretty.

This is a character-focused book, as the reader is left to wonder, when the daughter accidentally kills someone, what will the Radleys do? Not only do you wonder, but you want to know, because the characters are excellent. Dad Radley is dealing with his own American Beauty-esque questions of how did I end up here? Mama Radley is desperately trying to appear normal, but she ... just ... can't. Son Radley is creepy, but you root for him, despite his goth persona. Daughter Radley is kind of evil and blood-thirsty, but hey, she's a vampire right? This is just a clever, clever book, written by a British dude who really knows how to write. Gorgeous ... and gory.
