5.0 étoiles sur 5 Une histoire très touchante bourrée d'authenticité 16 septembre 2014
Par Manon | Sous Ma Couverture TOP 500 COMMENTATEURS
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Le thème de la maladie mentale peut faire peur. Personnellement, elle me fascine en quelque sorte. J'ai envie de savoir comme ça se passe dans leur tête, comment ils vivent, et comment vivent leur proche. Peut-être que j'aurais dû faire psycho. Liphéo, j'arrive, je viens avec toi.

Matthew perd son frère à l'âge de 9 ans, et va devoir faire face au deuil et à la schizophrénie.

Les premières pages, déjà, et l'émotions m'a saisie. Elle m'a saisie dans les fourmis, et les boîtes de gâteaux. C'est vous dire! Elle m'a saisie dans chaque mot, chaque lettre, chaque tournure de phrase.
The Shock of the Fall est écrit avec une beauté totalement fantastique et inattendue, mais aussi et surtout avec amour.
L'amour se ressent à travers chacun des personnages. Chaque personne regorge d'amour et de tendresse, et j'ai été totalement attendrie par l'amour de Matthew - le protagoniste - envers son frère, et inversement. Par l'amour de ses parents pour leur enfant. L'amour de leur grands-parents. De son ami Jacob, des infirmières ... J'ai été touchée par l'attachement et la tendresse, malgré la culpabilité, les fissures, et la maladie.

“If people think you're MAD, then everything you do, everything you think, will have MAD stamped across it.” 2

The Shock of the Fall fait ressortir une grande franchise et une grande honnêteté. Une vérité qu'on devine, et qu'on sait, sur les conséquences de la maladie.

Magnifique lecture,

A lire et relire, pour le style narratif, l'histoire, les émotions.
A lire et à relire car on s'attache aux personnages, à leur histoire si touchante.
On s'attache à Simon aussi, comme son petit frère.
j'ai adoré !!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Quite brilliant 28 juin 2013
Par Sid Nuncius - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
For once this is a novel which justifies the publisher's hyperbolic claims - it really is terrific. I found it utterly engrossing, readable, funny, enlightening and very moving.

This is the story of Matthew, a young man who suffers from schizophrenia. It is narrated by Matthew himself and one of the most striking things about the book is the brilliant authenticity of his narrative voice. I am no expert on schizophrenia, but to this layman it felt and sounded utterly convincing, shifting in tone according to his medication and whether he is taking it, capturing things like Matthew's anger, wit, bitterness and sadness with remarkable vividness and painting an unforgettable picture of the things which happen to him. It took me right inside that young man's head and gave me a wholly believable picture and understanding of what he is going through and why he behaves as he does.

The story is superbly told. The structure is fragmented as Matthew writes in various places and states of mind and we get his history woven into descriptions of what is going on as he writes. Again, this is excellently done and really adds to the feel and sense of the book rather than just being a novelistic trick. Other characters and places are brilliantly painted and he captures (and sometimes excoriates) the language and types of speech of others (especially medical staff) extremely well. I found the whole thing compelling in that way where I felt very glad to have half an hour free to read some more.

I think there's always a worry with a book like this that it is using a Big Subject and a Clever Narrative Voice to market a mediocre novel. This does nothing of the kind: it avoids mawkishness, it is never sentimental and it treats its subject with respect even when being very funny about it. The whole thing is intelligent, honest and compassionate.

Comparisons with Mark Haddon are inevitable. This is a different story from The Curious Case but I genuinely think it is as good - and I know that's really saying something. This is one of the most involving and memorable books I have read for quite some time. Very, very warmly recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An accomplished debut 15 août 2013
Par Raven - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
It is a rare thing to find a novel addressing the issues of mental illness handled in such a deft and compelling manner, but this is exactly what Filer has achieved in this accomplished debut novel. Drawing on Filer's own experiences of working within this field of mental health, there is an authenticity to the book that further compounds the effect and enjoyment of this, at times, heartwrenching story. Narrated by Matthew, a young adult, in the grip of schizophrenia, whose life has been hugely impacted on by the death of his brother Simon some years previously, Filer captures the true voice of and frustrations that Matthew experiences as his illness waxes and wanes throughout the book. The effects of the rise and fall of his symptons are cleverly illustrated by the clever incorporation of different typesets and fonts, which further brings home to the reader the essential aspects of Matthew's day-to-day- struggles with his mental health. Matthew's narrative is utterly compelling, gravitating between anger, despair and moments of humour, that challenges the reader and our perceptions of him as a character. Filer also stresses the impact of Matthew's schizophrenia on Matthew's family in a number of carefully wrought tableaus that really bring home the darkness of mental illness on the perceived normality of family life. The novel never descends into the trap of sentimentality, nor is it a completely depressing and mawkish study of life in the shadow of schizophrenia. It is an exceptionally balanced mix of truth, poignancy and, in some ways hope, that adds to its overall strength as a remarkable debut that deserves to be read.

This is a candid, touching window into the mind and life of a young man with schizophrenia. It allows glimpses into his psychosis that feel entirely real. As a mental health professional i found this book insightful and honest.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Weird journey 2 août 2013
Par Cyril Malondra - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Nathan Filer takes you by the hand and very gently, with simple words brings you into the world of schizophrenia.
It is a weird journey, one that you won't forget for a long time because in a way it makes you almost experience and at least understand what it can be, its impact on a young life. There is no sadness, no pity, just the experience of a kind of life you probably do not know and someone to guide you into it.
For a first book it's a coup de maître.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Compelling and touching 24 février 2014
Par Zarina @ Page to Stage reviews - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
When Nathan Filer won the Costa Book Award for his debut novel last month, The Shock of the Fall was all over my Twitter time line. Everyone was raving about a book I had heard little about before that day - my interest was definitely piqued. So when I was offered a copy for a review I didn't have to think twice as I was keen to see if it would manage to live up to the hype. Spoiler alert: it does.

Main protagonist Matt's journey throughout the novel, from an innocent little boy to a troubled young man, was beautiful, fascinating, confusing, depressing yet ultimately incredibly touching. I've not read a book before that delves into a character struggling with mental illness into such detail and it has been a educational and rewarding experience. Even though it's fiction, it feels as if I've had the privilege to read another person's most raw thoughts and emotions, making Matt very vulnerable but also astonishingly real.

The Shock of the Fall is the story of Matt in its most purest form. He tells his own story, in his own words and in his own time and as he does so we get intimately acquainted with his most private thoughts and struggles. While there is a focus on mental illness and it shows Matt's difficulties increasing as he grows up, this is foremost the story of Matt and his older brother Simon. Even though his brother dies when Matt is still a little kid, Simon remains an important presence as the years go by and this part of Matt's life show him and his family trying to come to terms with what happened all those years ago.

I thought it was fascinating to read Matt's own words in the different types of media that were available to him when he was writing down his story; the different fonts translated really well within the novel and emphasised Matt's scattered thoughts and changing grasp on reality. And while initially his seemed a very straightforward and down-spiralling story there are quite a few unexpected twists along the way too, making this not only an emotionally satisfying novel, but also an intellectually satisfying one.

The only reason I'm giving The Shock of the Fall 4 stars instead of 5 is that I read it straight after Wonder by R.J. Palacio. While the novels centre on different subject matters - main character Auggie from Wonder has a facial deformity making it much more a story about physical appearances and bullying, rather than the inward and often invisible struggle of mental illness - they're both stories about difference and acceptance, of others and of yourself. I believe that Wonder managed to convey that message in a slightly more moving and memorable way, and it personally touched me the most.

Had I not read these books straight after one another my perception on The Shock of the Fall would've likely been even more positive than it already is, as it truly is an extraordinary compelling, poignant and thought-provoking novel - and a deserving Costa Book Awards winner.
