3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good, but marred by technique 10 juillet 2014
Par Daniel Olmstead - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
It's a compelling and imaginative story, but my main problem is with the form. The faux oral-history genre has had a bit of a revival lately, from the good (Robopocalypse) to the great (World War Z), but the thing that makes oral histories so great is missing here: individual voice. Scalzi has great imagination, but something of a tin ear for dialogue, and all of his characters sound basically the same. They also weave in and out of the narrative, whereas typically oral histories are more of a one-and-done kind of thing, so really there's not much difference between what Scalzi has written and what it would be if he just narrated the whole thing.

That said, it's a quick and clever setup for the world of Lock-in, and definitely worth $2. I just wish it had as much artistry as imagination.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 A Story Bible 19 juillet 2014
Par Eric Juneau - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Scalzi released this as a companion novella to his upcoming book. You can buy it for a few dollars from Amazon or Nook or get it from Tor.com for free, which I did.

It's not so much a piece of fiction as a simple timeline of the backstory up to when I presume "Lock-In" starts. It's kinda dry. It feels more interested in imparting information than creating a story or memorable characters. Like Scalzi took his story bible and turned it into a novella. Which I don't blame him for -- I'd do the same thing. Good promotional material.

Unfortunately, I don't know how necessary it is to read this if you plan to read "Lock-In". Scalzi says it isn't, but it feels like there's a lot of key details in this that lead up to something. But that something (people being able to enter others bodies and control them) may or may not be relevant. On its own though, it feels skippable.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fascinating, well crafted novella whets the appetite for the novel to come 8 mai 2014
Par Karen A. Wyle - Publié sur Amazon.com

This "oral history" of a devastating future illness, and of humanity's response, is beautifully conceived and assembled. This novella is an adjunct to Scalzi's upcoming novel Lock In, and it's hard to see how the novel could equal it, let alone top it -- but I'm eager to see whether he pulls it off!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Engrossing, horrifying, but ultimately hopeful 30 juillet 2014
Par Tungsten Hippo - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
A well-told story of how a nation responded to a terrible public health crisis. The crisis itself is horrifying- a new virus of unknown origin, with an unpredictable subset of patients advancing to a "locked in" state in which the patient is alive and conscious and unable to move at all. However, the story is ultimately hopeful, because despite the usual political difference, the nation does rise to the challenge. I found the story engrossing and think it would be an enjoyable and worthwhile read even if you aren't planning to read the novel that it supports.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great worldbuilding to set the scene for "Lock In" 12 mai 2014
Par illegiblescribble - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
"Unlocked" provides a chronological history of an epidemic which occurs 15 years from now, from the alternating viewpoints of doctors, victims, scientists and entrepreneurs looking for solutions, journalists, and people in the Centers for Disease Control and the White House.

As the narrative progresses, the growing panic, suffering and frustration of the narrators and of the general populace build a sense of foreboding and then doom. Millions die, and millions more are left with "locked-in" syndrome: conscious, cognitive, and aware, but incapable of any speech or movement whatsoever. But - as with all such crises - partially-successful medical interventions are developed, and eventually the epidemic becomes a "normalized" fact of life.

The author has done a fantastic job of imparting a distinctive "voice" to each of the different characters as they relate their personal experiences and perceptions.

This novella is a prequel to (and contains a first chapter teaser of) the novel Lock In, which takes place 25 years after the epidemic began. With his articulate, accessible prose, the author has hugely piqued my interest in what comes next, and I will be reading the novel as soon as it is released.
