Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“There is a stark simplicity in Mr. Gaiman’s prose in this deceptively dark tale of how far men will go to achieve their heart’s desire only to find that the achievement pales in comparison to the desiring.” (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)

“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

You ask me if I can forgive myself? I can forgive myself...

And so begins The Truth Is a Cave in the Black Mountains, a haunting story of family, the otherworld, and a search for hidden treasure. This audiobook is brought to vivid life by the characters and landscape of Gaiman's award-winning story. In this volume, the talents and vision of two great creative geniuses come together in a glorious explosion of colour and shadow, memory and regret, vengeance and, ultimately, love.

...for many things. For where I left him. For what I did.

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.

Bedtime story 17 juin 2014
Par Bonnie Duncan - Publié sur
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!

A Skye folk tale, not for children 24 juin 2014
Par James Tourtelott - Publié sur
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.

"...and that way is treacherous and hard" 14 juillet 2014
Par FictionFan - Publié sur
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!

Maybe the problem is me 27 juillet 2014
Par William J. Feuer - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Maybe the problem is me. I would give 5 stars to Ocean at the end of the Lane, American Gods, and The Graveyard Book. I would give 4 stars to Good Omens and Anansi Boys (maybe 4.5 to the latter). But I am here reviewing The Truth is a cave... This book has the great Gaiman imagination and it grabbed my interest and held it. I had no quibble with the artwork, which fits the story well, though I would rather imagine how things look myself. What I did not love was: (1) while I had no idea at all how it would get there, I realized pretty fast where it was going to wind up and (2) I'm a huge fan of Gaiman's darkness, but I have come to expect some redemption if not actual good cheer at the ending. The resolution of this one was satisfying but all in all pretty bleak.

A Multifaceted, Deeply Satisfying Work 27 septembre 2014
Par Scott William Foley - Publié sur
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.
