Revue de presse

“Gaimain (Anansi Boys) has crafted a fresh story of magic, humanity, loyalty, and memories ‘waiting at the edges of things,’ where lost innocence can be restored as long as someone is willing to bear the cost.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review) on THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE)

“Part fable, part fairy tale and part cautionary tale, The Ocean at the End of the Lane is by turns hauntingly beautiful, painfully intense, funny, witty, wise, scary, and heart wrenchingly sad.” (SFRevu on THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE)

“A terrifying shift in the nature of things lies at the heart of Neil Gaimain’s rich new novel.” (The Guardian on THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE)

“Poignant and heartbreaking, eloquent and frightening, impeccably rendered, it’s a fable that reminds us how our lives are shaped by childhood experiences, what we gain from them and the price we pay.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review) on THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE)

“[T]here isn’t much Gaiman can’t do when it comes to writing.” (Denver Post on ANANSI BOYS)

“A hybrid of folk tale and farce that freely partakes of the comic wealth in each, slipping effortlessly back and forth between them . . . Anansi Boys is Gaiman’s tribute to [Anansi’s] trickster spirit, as nimble and resourceful as his own imagination.” (Salon on ANANSI BOYS)

“Original, engrossing, and endlessly inventive; a picaresque journey across America where the travelers are even stranger than the roadside attractions.” (George R. R. Martin on AMERICAN GODS) --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Relié .

Présentation de l'éditeur

Beautifully illustrated by renowned artist Eddie Campbell, this is a four-colour edition of Neil Gaiman's award-winning novelette "The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains"- a haunting story of family, the otherworld, and a search for hidden treasure.


The text of The Truth Is a Cave in the Black Mountains was first published in the collection Stories: All New Tales (Headline, 2010). This gorgeous full-colour illustrated book version was born of a unique collaboration between writer Neil Gaiman and artist Eddie Campbell, who brought to vivid life the characters and landscape of Gaiman's story.

In August 2010, The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains was performed in the concert hall of the Sydney Opera House to a sell-out crowd - Gaiman read his tale live as Campbell's magnificent artwork was presented, scene by scene, on large screens. Narrative and art were accompanied by live music composed and performed especially for the story by the FourPlay String Quartet.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A journey with all senses 11 août 2014
Par Lynaël
Format:CD|Achat vérifié
I bought both the CD and the book to have the complete piece of art. When you are not used to listening to an audio book, it could take you some time to feel comfortable, but once you let yourself dive into the story, the journey is incredible. The string quartet gives different atmospheres, paces and sounds from the story. There are even some little passages that Neil Gaiman did not write in the book, but added as he recorded the audio book (not much, but still, it makes you feel like you witness Neil at work, changing a few words, adding a sensation, a hesitiation from a character). I enjoyed the story too. I like it when there are clues scattered in the story, and when you finish the book, you think back and uncover their real meaning.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Bedtime story 17 juin 2014
Par Bonnie Duncan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle avec audio/vidéo|Achat vérifié
Neil's wondrous work left me feeling like like a happy child again. At the end, I felt like pulling on his sleeve. "Read it again, please!" No problem. Neil's voice is available any time. What a gift! Knowing it would be there, I could get on with morning chores. Nobody does myth like Gaiman. There were some places that still need a good proofreader, though. I didn't mind places where the read text diverged from the print, which was explained in the postscript. That just felt more like Neil's right here reading to me. Careless copy editing, though, is inexcusable in a text this short. Not enough to drop a star...Gaiman's too good for that...but enough that I'd ask that a repaired copy replace those sent out in early sales. There aren't that many errors, so go fix the bloody thing!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Skye folk tale, not for children 24 juin 2014
Par James Tourtelott - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Neil Gaiman's new book, The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains, looks in layout and design like a children's book. But it is no more a tale for children than those the Grimms collected. It is in form a Skye folk tale, and like any such tale has echoes of the 45 and of the King over the water. It is as hard and sharp and precise of detail as a folk tale, and as dark and violent as well. I read it in less than an hour. I doubt I will forget it, and would not be surprised to dream of it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 "...and that way is treacherous and hard" 14 juillet 2014
Par FictionFan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
"You ask me if I can forgive myself? I can forgive myself for many things. For where I left him. For what I did. But I will not forgive myself for the year that I hated my daughter..."

So starts this dark tale of a journey, a quest into the Black Mountains to find a cave - to find the truth. Our narrator is a small man, a dwarf, but he's strong and he's driven; by what, we don't yet know but we feel a slow anger in him, an undiminished determination despite his ten year search for the object of his obsession. As we meet him, he is about to hire a guide, Calum MacInnes, to take him to a cave on the Misty Isle which is reputed to be filled with gold...

This book is nothing less than stunning. Gaiman's wonderfully dark story is equalled and enhanced by the amazingly atmospheric illustrations of Eddie Campbell. The two elements - words and pictures - are completely entwined. There's no feeling of the one being an addition to the other - each is essential and together they form something magical. The tale is by turns moving, mystical, dramatic, frightening; and the illustrations, many of them done in very dark colours, create a sense of mirky gloom and growing apprehension and, as the story darkens, some of the later pictures are truly macabre and unforgettable.

Gaiman was apparently inspired to write the story by his visits to the Isle of Skye and the legends of the Hebrides. While the pictures quite clearly place the story in the Highlands - the kilts, the purples and greens, the blackness of the mountains - Gaiman has very wisely steered clear of any attempt to 'do' dialect. The book is written in standard English, but with the lush layering of traditional legends and with a rhythm in the words that really calls for it to be read aloud. Perhaps this isn't surprising since the story was originally devised to be read by Gaiman himself at the Sydney Opera House with Campbell's illustrations projected as a backdrop. I was the lucky, lucky recipient of a hardback copy of the book, but apparently the Kindle Fire edition has audio and video links, though to what I don't know. However, the book is so beautiful that, devoted though I am to my Kindle, this is one where I would strongly recommend the paper version.

All the way through, the story is foreshadowing the eventual end as if to suggest that all things are fore-ordained. It's well worth reading the book twice in fact (it's only 73 pages) - the first reading has all the tension of not knowing how it ends, while the second reading allows the reader to see how carefully Gaiman fits everything together to create the folk-tale feeling of inevitability. And then read it again a third time, just because it's wonderful. I end where I began - stunning!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Multifaceted, Deeply Satisfying Work 27 septembre 2014
Par Scott William Foley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Written by the renowned Neil Gaiman, this small picture book is unlike anything I’ve ever read. Perhaps picture book is too simple a phrase, for that conjures up something meant for a child, which this book clearly is not. At seventy-three pages, I read this tale in less than an hour. Every page is comprised of paintings, drawings, and even photography that weave in and out of each other and provide endless opportunities for inspection.

The story itself is something of a mystery, something of a fairy tale, something horrific, and something also amusing. It satisfies on every level, and as soon as I finished it, I immediately reread the beginning to find the clues I’d previously ignored. The signs are there. The omens are given. The fortunes read.

I don’t want to reveal much more about this story, for I think the less known the more fulfilling it is. Just know that it is masterfully written, with just enough dialogue, description, and narration to ignite a spark within your imagination not easily forgotten.

And, just as Gaiman created a provocative short story, Eddie Campbell delivers artwork no less significant. Like the story itself, the art of the book is multifaceted and unlike anything I’ve ever quite experienced. As already stated, Campbell sometimes works photography into the illustrations, sometimes creates beautiful paintings, and sometimes scribbles simple line drawings with a touch of color. Sometimes the prose and dialogue are placed within a traditional comic book sequence of panels, and sometimes they adhere to the traditions of a picture book with the prose within the illustration or juxtaposed to it.

I’ve read much of Gaiman’s work—comic books, children’s books, and novels—and I assure you that this is one of his most gratifying efforts.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fireside dark storytelling rendered even more magical 15 juillet 2014
Par Lady Fancifull - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
"I am old now, or at least, I am no longer young, and everything I see reminds me of something else I've seen, such that I see nothing for the first time. A bonny girl, her head fiery-red, reminds me only of another hundred such lasses, and their mothers, and what they were as they grew, and what they looked like when they died. It is the curse of age, that all things are reflections of other things"

Fabulous weaver of weird and wonderful stories for adults and children Neil Gaiman wrote this short story/novella The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains, which was published in a collection of creepy dark stories: Stories: All New Tales, by Headline, back in 2010.

Then this story by Gaiman developed another life, when he was invited to read his story aloud, and with projected artwork by Eddie Campbell, with a musical underscore by FourPlay String Quartet at the graphic Festival at Sydney Opera House.

Now Headline have reduced the experience back down to the individual reading experience - a book, a story on the page, that artwork, condensed into a wonderful weaving of seductive and dark words, sensuous and sometimes scary images, and the tactile experience of silky, glossy pages, hardcover, slightly textured titling. The book as craft, art, and beautiful object as well as wondrous words and a story like some well-honed myth, handed down through generations.

This is a journey through the Highlands, a journey made by two stern men, both with hidden secrets. The un-named narrator is a small fierce man. His companion, Calum MacInnes, is a tall, gaunt one. And there appears to be distrust of the other, from both sides, as they set out to find hidden gold which may be cursed

Artist Eddie Campbell's artworks are gorgeous, and varied in style, ranging from graphic, solid broad-brush stroked figures which are almost cartoon in simplicity, to some lovely part-shaded, part outline, suggestions of shapes, which appear to flicker out from misty, pastel backgrounds. I particularly like the fact that the textured background Campbell must originally have used is visible, a wash across all pages, so that the use of colour is subtle and varied.

This is really not a book to get on ereader - the subtlety of texture, the vibrancy of colour and shape need to be appreciated in the larger size of a book's pages.

I was extremely fortunate to be offered this by Headline, as a review copy.

My only regret is that I missed knowing about this book till a few days after Neil Gaiman, Eddie Campbell and Foursquare repeated the performed event of the story. Seeing these illustrations stage sized, having the author read his tale aloud and with the underscore, sitting rapt with others whilst this played out, must have been a magnificent occasion
