Revue de presse

"Lotz is a ferociously imaginative storyteller whose twisty plots will kick the stairs out from under you. She's a talent to watch."—Lauren Beukes, author of The Shining Girls

Présentation de l'éditeur

Lost meets The Passage in this incredible new thriller, for all fans of The Shining Girls and Stephen King.

They're here ... The boy. The boy watch the boy watch the dead people oh Lordy there's so many ... They're coming for me now. We're all going soon. All of us. Pastor Len warn them that the boy he's not to­­--

The last words of Pamela May Donald (1961 - 2012)

Black Thursday. The day that will never be forgotten. The day that four passenger planes crash, at almost exactly the same moment, at four different points around the globe.

There are only four survivors. Three are children, who emerge from the wreckage seemingly unhurt. But they are not unchanged. And the fourth is Pamela May Donald, who lives just long enough to record a voice message on her phone. A message that will change the world.

The message is a warning.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 "See you when you're older mate." 20 mai 2014
Par Amelia Gremelspacher - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book immediately snares the reader with the disparate views of the crash of four different commuter flights. The viewpoints of a passenger, of a waiting relative, of EMT and of investigaters lead the evolving mystery. While complex, the plot knits together seamlessly as the unanswered questions mount. Three small children have survived wrecks of immense horror. Right away they serve as lightening rods for the grief and the lack of answers.

I think that a prevailing hook to this book is the need for explanations when tragedy hits. As we have seen currently with the missing airplane, the dropping of people from the sky fills one with dread. It would seem preferable in some way for an unknown threat to have caused the failure than for random fate to have entered our lives. As one relative notes, our seeing off of loved ones has become almost prosaic. "See you when you're older mate." is a comfortable enforcement of the idea that one's twin will return from a perfectly routine flight.

Each of the different narrator's bring his/her own voice to the story. This book is remarkable in the varying points of view that are successfully assumed. I was particularly invested in the Japanese relative of one survivor in her online dialogue with a hikikomori, recluse, about her struggles to reach her nephew. I also have a soft spot for the actor uncle who undertakes to raise his niece safe from the "Addam's family" of her deceased mother.. The characters are fully realized adding an unsettling element to the undercurrent of supernatural. In addition, the settings are diverse and rich. Japan's Aokigahara Forest is an eerie site of one of the crashes which comes to vivid detail. It is a real forest, and this adds to the texture of the setting.

The presence of these children in the midst of impossible odds adds an eerie note from the start of this page turning novel, one that I wish to leave at that to avoid spoilers. But I will add that this a book that I recommend to any lover of the world not always considered.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A very creepy,unique, and thoughtful thriller! 22 mai 2014
Par MyBookishWays - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Four planes crash in different places throughout the world. Three children, one from each of three sites, are the only survivors, although there are pervasive rumors of a fourth. An American woman (the only one on a Japanese flight), Pamela May Donald, supposedly survives long enough after one of the crashes to leave a cryptic message on her phone, directed at a certain Pastor Len, that alludes to a boy and “the dead people.” This leads Pastor Len to believe that the children may be three of the four horsemen, and that the end times are approaching. That sounds more simplistic than it really is, though. There is a progression, not only of events, but of certain ideas, that lead to such apocalyptic talk, and a rather odd fervor is created. But, a little should be said about the survivors. All are of a certain age (under 10) and come from fairly different backgrounds, two boys and a girl. Jess Craddock is sent to live with her gay uncle Paul, little Bobby’s grandparents, including a grandfather suffering from Alzheimer’s, takes him in, and little Hiro Yanagida, the son of a brilliant Japanese robot expert, is left with his aunt and cousin. The boy, in fact, communicates only through a lifelike robot that his father has created in his image. If you think that sounds creepy, you’d be right. The story of these three unusual kids is told in book-inside-a-book form, called Black Thursday: From Crash to Conspiracy by Elspeth Martins, and each tale is laid out in quite different ways. Paul and Jess’s tale plays out via Paul’s confessional style voice recordings, Bobby’s by way of interviews of his grandmother and neighbors, and Hiro’s in the form of his teen cousin Chiyoko’s instant messages to a lonely young man, Ryu, that longs to be with her. There’s also a search going on for “Kenneth”, the rumored survivor of the Africa crash. Also in the mix is testimony from the crash investigators and a few others. It makes for a potent brew.

This is a complex book, and there’s really no easy way to sum up the events. I can say that Lotz is an expert in the creepies, but I already knew that (see The Mall, her novel as  of SL Grey). For example, Pamela’s plane lands in Aokigahara, also known as the Suicide Forest or Sea of Trees. It’s estimated that up to 100 suicides occur there each year. There are actually signs there encouraging people to reconsider their actions. Like I said, creepy. Hauntingly beautiful, but creepy. Pamela’s last vision before her death includes some of the most unsettling imagery in the book. The kids are certainly a bit “off”, most of all Jess, and Bobby seems to have a miraculous effect on one of his family members. The biggest clue to what’s going on, early in the book, comes from Jess, and her uncle’s suspicion that she’s not the real Jess begins to consume him. His spiral is devastating, but you won’t be able to tear your eye’s away.

It’s not worth your time to try to plug this book into any particular genre. It has horror elements, certainly, and thriller elements, but considering the end times angle, and Pastor Lem’s certainty that The Three are harbingers of Revelations being upon us, it’s also a very clever, and thoughtful exploration of extremism in all its forms, and also our fascination with disaster and its aftermath. Lotz’s character studies are nothing short of fascinating, and if the book’s structure kept me at arm’s length from the characters a bit, that’ s ok, because this book is so damn cleverly put together, and Lotz’s attention to detail is phenomenal. The Three will reward readers in the end, at least it did me, and each little slice of life, and death, that I experienced along the way was a treat. The Three is a solid, absorbing-and yes, creepy-solo effort from a very talented author. Can’t wait to see what she does next!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 This one was a hit and a miss for me.. 20 juin 2014
Par Scarlet Aingeal - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I received a copy of this from the publishers via netgalley in return for an honest review.

I was drawn to this book initially by the cover, it gives the impression that it's going to be a horror novel. I'm not sure I would class this as horror, it's so much more, it has mystery, conspiracy, thrills, chills, apocalypse, religious fanatics and creepy children.

The author drew me into the story and kept me turning the pages for more, however I feel like I have been left hanging now that I am finished. During the story we are introduced to several different conspiracies and theories about what happened, why it happened and the possible outcome. Each as possible and believable as the other albeit a bit far fetched outside of the story itself.

There is no definitive explanation or answer given, it's left open for the reader to decide and I think that's what spoiled this one for me. With all the theories put in place in the story it's possible that any of them could be the answer and I would have much preferred that there was a clear outcome to the end of the book.

I'm not sure what to rate this, I did enjoy it and I kept reading to find out what was going on but I'm still none the wiser. I'm giving this 3 stars (ironic considering the name lol) because I liked the premise of the book, it intrigued me and kept me reading.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Smart but laborious to read 21 juin 2014
Par Writer/Reader - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I don't know this author, but clearly she is an experienced writer and knows how to string a story together. For my tastes, there were way too many contrivances, digressions, and cyber interactions between characters that didn't move the story forward. The best developed and most endearing character was Paul, the gay actor. I kept wishing that more of the book was like the scenes with him. I completely skipped the "chats" between the Japanese characters, just utterly dull. After about 100 pages I felt like I was online surfing, you know how you can get caught in pathways of links going from reading the NY Times, to Amazon reviews then all of a sudden you're on the Huff Post and then somehow mysteriously you are reading some obscure blog, etc., etc., the end result having the sensation of a big fat blob of lard has fallen onto your brain? Well, that is what this book is like. It keeps being smart, as I said, the author is very clever, but it begins to be so laborious to read--who wants to read people's emails? BORING and torturous. The last third was just simply excruciating to read so I skimmed it as I wanted to find out what she was trying to pull together, only to find out the answer: Nothing.

And published by Little Brown? How in the world?

This book was so interesting and even riveting for the first half. I couldn't put it down. Then, towards the end I felt disappointed. It was an amazing premise, telling the story from different perspectives was well done, but the ending sort of fizzled.
