HASH(0x93a50204) étoiles sur 5 The oddest and most surreal of Ballard's novels 20 juin 2013
Par Kevin Martin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I'm a big fan of JG Ballard, so this is probably a little biased.

In the 70s, JG Ballard made a transition from the SF New Wave, Experimental short stories, and ecological disaster novels that made his name and started writing novels that took the better parts of all those other works and put them into a less-fantastical narratives. This transition led to his Urban Trilogy (Crash, The Concrete Island, High Rise). Then he wrote The Unlimited Dream Company, which is, when compared to the entirety of Ballard's extant works, completely and totally odd.

It's a novel that returns to Ballard's inner-space psychological SF milieu, but does it in the suburban town of Shepperton. A young man, possibly disturbed, steals a small airplane and crashes it into the Thames. He gets taken in by the community and then the surrealness kicks in. It's not overt, po-mo text-trickery, like Burroughs (though I could see Burroughs writing something like Dream Company if he had never encountered the cut-up technique), or confusion-inducing prolixity like Pynchon. It is subtle and matter-of-fact, and really, kind of hard to describe.

It is a tough book to read, because of its imagery-density and unreliable narrator, but the end result is very, very satisfying.

I'll qualify this to say that if you have read no other Ballard, don't start here. Start with the short stories. This is really a book that requires foreknowledge of Ballard's other works before reading (not because of any plot-related stuff, but just to be familiar with the way he operates).
HASH(0x93a4db88) étoiles sur 5 Ballard's best book? Perhaps. 3 décembre 2015

J.G. Ballard regarded this as his best book and certainly it is one of his most imaginative works, that's saying a lot for the author of atrocity exhibition and the writer whose novel gave us the source material for David Cronenberg's film Crash. The suspense of "what is happening" extends far into the novel, but the answer is satisfying. There's something beautiful about the way Ballard puts together words, be aware sex and violence are present, but always integral to the plot.

Listed by Burgess as one of the top 99 novels in his great if idiosyncratic book.

HASH(0x93a4d798) étoiles sur 5 Follow the dream logic 1 novembre 2015
Par Kristopher Spencer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Brilliantly surrealistic novel with passing similarities to other JGB works, particularly Vermillion Sands and The Drowned World. Dreamlike narrative but easy to follow in its dream logic. Quite erotic too. A "sleeper" in Ballard's oeuvre, and too often discounted as a lesser novel. Highly recommended.

HASH(0x93c37960) étoiles sur 5 Ballard missed the target 14 juin 2015
Par lory lanfranchi - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Too much, even for Ballard. He only depicts a visionary landscape in which there is no plot nor meaning, while the characters move through endless sexual epiphanies. If you don't know Ballard yet, well, don't start from here: you would get a false impression about this great writer.
