Revue de presse

"If you like the TV series Bones, then you'll love Virals." (James Patterson)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Adventure is in Tory Brennan's blood. After all, she’s the grandniece of world-famous forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan. Always up for a challenge, Tory and her science-geek friends spend their time exploring the marshlands of Loggerhead Island, home to the very off-limits Loggerhead Island Research Institute, where something strange is going on. After rescuing a stray wolfdog pup from a top-secret lab, Tory and her friends are exposed to a rare strain of canine parvovirus, changing them--and their DNA--forever. Now they are more than friends. They are a pack. They are Virals. And they're dangerous to the core. But are they unstoppable enough to catch a cold-blooded murderer?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Surprise 4 décembre 2011
Par livre
Format:Broché
Le livre m'a surpris car je ne m'attendais, en aucun cas à un livre, pour enfants ou jeunes ados ,au demeurant très bien . Je pense que ce commentaire serait très utile à de futurs acheteurs car si tout le monde connait l'auteur pour ses œuvres de médecin légiste il n'en est pas de même mais pour un livre du genre la bande des Quatres ou bibliothèque verte. Je ne voudrais pas que ce commentaire soit compris comme une critique mais plus comme un éclairage car de plus une suite est annoncée . Bonne lecture

Gold Star Award Winner!

Tory and her father live on an island reserved for the faculty who work at the remote research facility on a nearby island. She and her friends often explore the research island. One day, she convinces them to break into the facility to use their equipment in rejuvenating a dog tag ID they found in the woods.

While they have no problems cleaning the dog tags, they discover a missing wild puppy locked in a cage. Outraged, they immediately break Coop out and hide him in their secret cavern.

Tory and her friends take turns caring for the puppy while also trying to unravel the mystery surrounding the dog tags. They search the library, where they uncover clues to the identity of the man. Unfortunately, their search triggers a reaction. Someone doesn't want that information uncovered, and they'll do almost anything to keep Tory and her friends from learning and sharing the truth.

Coop is sick, sick with a strand of virus that infects Tory and her friends. Suddenly, they're having hot flashes, blacking out, and using bursts of adrenaline to execute inhuman feats. These feats occur in times of extreme danger - being followed, chased, shot at, or while breaking into secure buildings.

VIRALS is Kathy Reichs' first foray into the young adult world, and she knocks it out of the park. After a slow start, the tension, drama, danger, mystery, and the strange virus pulsing through the characters' bodies make this book extraordinarily hard to put down. I'm already waiting for the next book in the series.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Read 5 mai 2012
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I was a bit worried about this spin off by k.Reichs as it seemed to be aimed more at kids than adults, however after the first few chapters you really get into the book. It has all the great suspense, story and characters that you would expect to find in a Kathy Reichs book. Loved it and recommend it!

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Good action if you're willing to dumb yourself down 9 juillet 2012
Par Tim Dawes - Publié sur Amazon.com
The story is a fun read. There's plenty of sleuthing and action. The major fault of the book is that you have to dumb yourself down to read it. Otherwise, you're always 2 or 3 steps ahead of the protagonist which is excruciating in a suspense novel. I found myself constantly saying, "Really, you don't get that? Then why are you making such risky choices if you don't get what's going on?"

Small spoilers below (reveals some of the early plot but not the juicy stuff)

As examples:

The kids make a rather shocking discovery on an island just as they are set on and shot at by an armed team clad in black. At the end of the encounter, the kids decide not to tell their parents about it until the morning (Are you kidding me!) because they say they are too tired to endure the grilling their parents will give them. I've never been shot at, but I can't imagine a group of teenagers tucking themselves in for a good night's sleep before they tell their parents. Then, when they do report the crime, they report it to an enforcement agency that they already believe are a joke (rather than going to the state police or the SLEC, the state version of the FBI). Finally, when they show the officers the scene of the crime they've uncovered, they're shocked to see that the evidence they found has been tampered with or stolen. This is just beyond belief. Did the kids really think that a group would drive them off with weapons and leave the scene intact until the next day?

The kids liberate (steal) a puppy infected with a highly contagious animal virus from a secure research facility. When the director of the facility sees them next, he refers only slightly obliquely to the theft implying that he knows they took the puppy. The main character recognizes the implications of his statements in an internal dialogue. The next day the director interrogates the kids, asking each one if they feel sick or "fluish"? And they're perplexed. Why would he think we were sick? Sure the virus is only supposed to attack dogs. But they're at a research facility and someone has already tried to drive them away at gun point. Can they not put two and two together? Apparently they can't, even though they're supposed to be so bright that they estrange themselves from other kids at their school.

The book is filled with these incongruities.

It feels as though you're mentally dragging the main characters along or waiting for them to catch up.

It makes it a very frustrating read.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Misogyny abounds, fantasy is scant, and writing is horrible. 3 décembre 2013
Par Danyel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This book is... well, let's just say that if I had a child, they would never get to read it. And it's not because of the unbelievable number of expert B&Es the kids in this book commit, either.

This book is massively misogynistic. Massively. The main character, Tory, is a ~special~ kind of girl, because she wears jeans and likes science. Tory, and the book itself in the narrative, decry all feminine girls -- and, in fact, literally every other female character in the book -- as empty-headed "fluffbrain" sluts. Every female character is slut this, skank that, apparently for committing the horrible crime of not being Tory. It's honestly just disgusting to read through and witness how Tory writes off every other girl in her school as "fashion-obsessed fluffbrains" who aren't worth her time (she spends all her time with boys, naturally), talks about how special she is because she wears her uniform without, ahem, "slutting it up" like the other girls, and refers to a group of girls who don't like her any more than she likes them as "skanks" because they like clothes and have the sheer audacity not to like a girl whose every interaction with them drips with condescension and rudeness because they aren't science nerds like her. It's sickening.

(SPOILERS:) The one female character Tory does like, of course, is referred to as beautiful (but not acting like she knows she's beautiful, because female self-esteem is a horrible thing and apparently, in this world, makes you a skank or a slut) and kind, but turns out to be murderous, scheming and psychotic -- because, you know, Tory is the only "good" girl in the world, and all other women are evil (and slutty, skanky, insert other misogynistic slurs here).

The rest of the book is by turns vaguely interesting and completely unbelievable. The main characters, all between the ages of fourteen and sixteen, commit several expert burglaries and never get caught, demonstrate serious athletic prowess despite half being described initially as not athletic at all, and of course, Solve Crimes in unlikely and improbable ways.

The writing is as sloppy as the plot is thin. It alternates between Tory's first-person perspective and very occasional, out-of-the-blue, unmarked or indicated sections in third person that are jarring and out of place with the rest of the book. Typos abound.

Characterization is practically non-existent, as well. We learn a lot about Tory (because Tory is all about Tory, and all about how Not Like The Other Girls Tory is, and so on), but we learn very little about the other characters in the story. Even the boys are pretty slim on characterization -- by the end of the book, I felt like I knew Dr. Karsten better than I knew Ben.

Let me put it this way: This book was offensive and horribly written, and needless to say, I won't be buying the sequels.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Virals by Kathy and Brendan Reichs 1 juin 2013
Par Constant Rearder - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This is another book mistakenly listed as for Youthful readers. If one is into the Paranormal, adults will truly enjoy "Virals" the first in a new seres. The heroine, Tory Brennan, the grandniece of the Bones Serie star, Temperance Brennan, is 14 year old, has just lost her mother in an aut accident and has moved in with her father, a scientist living on one of the islands of the coast of South Carolina, and working in an animal reserve and research laboratory on another. She has three friends, boys from the age of 14 to 16 who are children of other employees on the same research laboratry island. The four of them are enrolled in a posh school on the mainland and are outcasts there.

Curios kids, they investigate one of the labs and find a puppy, a half wolf / half German Shepherd offspring of the wild wolf inhabitants of the island, hooked up to all sorts of wires an tubes--with his cage marked for his extermination. They grab the pup and run back to their own island home.

And each comes down with whatever has infected the pup, with varying degrees of illness. Tory's dad refuses to let her have a pet, so the four kids keep the pup in an old abandoned WWII defense bunker they've found on their island.

Tory's dad's employer, the doctor who's lab they stole the pup from, finds them and warns them that they might have unfortunate results from the illness they contracted from the dog--just as their bunker is attacked by unknown gun shooting men. The doctor sends the kids and pup through the escape tunnel, then collapses it so the kid can escape, but is killed in the aftermath.

The rest of the book is devoted to finding out who and why they were attacked, what has happened to them as result of catching the dog's virus, and learning what to do with themselves with these new powers.

Tory's life is complicated by a crush on the richest kid in school, and n Charlotte society, her dad's ditzy girlfriend who insists she prepare for her "comng out"--something the tom-boy Tory is not interested in at all, and the way the snobby kids in heir school treat these outsiders.

All in all a fun and interesting book to read--IF one is interested in anything paranormal.

Wasn't sure about this book when I started it - in fact I read the first chapter and then had to put it down for a while as it isn't her usual style, but once I started reading again I couldn't put it down - excellent read and very different from her usual books. I look forward to more of these characters in the future - please.
