Description du produit

Revue de presse

"A rollicking adventure yarn with plenty of heart - Emilie & the Hollow World shouldn't be missed." 
-Ann Aguirre, USA Today bestselling author

"A swashbuckling escape for avid readers that trades buttoned-up boundaries for unbridled adventure."
-Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)

"Wells has struck pure gold with this exciting and elaborate story that has no limits on its imagination—it perpetually surprises and entertains and keeps the reader guessing. Filled with warmth and danger and plenty of suspense, Emilie and the Hollow World is such a good, honest, real adventure that just…hits the spot. It’s just so good."
-Jet Black Ink

"Martha Wells introduces the newest fearless heroine in teen literature: Emilie. Wells takes readers on an adventure that braves a new world and rivals the Journey to the Center of the Earth!"
-Lovey Dovey Books

"If you’re looking for a fun YA adventure with a lovely, strong female protagonist, Emilie and the Hollow Worldis the book for you."
-A Fantastical Librarian

"This book is definitely a good choice for younger readers, especially female ones, who a geeky parent is looking to introduce the wonders of genre reading."
-Paul Weimer, SF Signal

 Emilie and the Hollow World is one of the best and most entertaining YA books I've ever read, because it's a charming old-fashioned adventure book.

"Read it. Give it to your local twelve-year-olds. It’s made of win."
-Liz Bourke, Sleeps With Monsters

Présentation de l'éditeur

While running away from home for reasons that are eminently defensible, Emilie’s plans to stow away on the steamship Merry Bell and reach her cousin in the big city go awry, landing her on the wrong ship and at the beginning of a fantastic adventure.

Taken under the protection of Lady Marlende, Emilie learns that the crew hopes to use the aether currents and an experimental engine, and with the assistance of Lord Engal, journey to the interior of the planet in search of Marlende’s missing father.

With the ship damaged on arrival, they attempt to traverse the strange lands on their quest. But when evidence points to sabotage and they encounter the treacherous Lord Ivers, along with the strange race of the sea-lands, Emilie has to make some challenging decisions and take daring action if they are ever to reach the surface world again.

Therre are a lot of Boy's Own Adventures. I love seeing examples, but with the girls as the plucky unexpected hero(ine)s.

This is a great example of such. It's exciting enough that I think even boys would read it, and Emilie is a nifty and resourceful character.

This is not the kind of book that goes in for lots of character development; the other characters are well-described but not especially nuanced- which is appropriate for such a book. Emilie does grow, and learns more about her capabilities and talents as things progress.

Add in some fun steampunk-ish elements, a world inside our world, and an elaborately twisty plot, and this was a lot of fun! (I'm an adult, and this is a YA novel.)

A minor quibble: Emilie's boots. She lost them when escaping one imprisonment. This was a point. Then, a few chapters later, she had them again. This possession was also pointed out explicitly several times. Then, toward the end, Emilie regretted that her boots had been lost during that first imprisonment! A reader that could do some continuity checking would have been helpful; while this was a really minor detail, it threw me out of the story when the first contradiction occurred.

Still! It's a good story set in a world that is intriguing, and I look forward to reading more.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Fun YA fantasy with a steampunk flavor 5 février 2014
Par Amanda - Publié sur Amazon.com

I really enjoyed Emilie who had pluck and daring but was unused to actual adventures. She finds herself in a number of difficult and dangerous situations during her adventures which she does not handle effortlessly. Our young heroine is scared, tired and hungry and she's very unsure she can do the task set before her. I like that it isn't easy, that she's unsure of herself but goes ahead and does the best she can anyway. Wells doesn't shy away from portraying death in this world and that's another hint of realism that makes the story gripping.

The steampunk elements are fairly underplayed, making up part of the background environment rather than being front and center. i liked this but if you are looking for the steampunk to be the focus this is not your book.

As always, Wells worldbuilding is detailed and thorough. We are introduced to two nonhumans societies and they culture, politics and infrastructure are very well thought out and believably complex.
An enjoyable read.

Emilie & the Hollow World is a story of exploration, imaginative fantasy and adventure. While it is geared as a young adult novel, it's still entertaining and enjoyable. Starring a sixteen year old runaway named Emilie, the story plunges into the depths of the planet. There she finds a world within a world aptly called the Hollow World. It's a place filled with strange people and numerous dangers. Against these odds, Emilie joins a group of adventurers as they tried to rescue the stranded Dr. Marlende.

The story has a pretty solid cast of characters. At the center of the story is Emilie, who has followed in her mother's footsteps and run away from home, only to find out it's a lot harder than the stories portray it to be. Still, Emilie isn't a helpless girl. Through the story, she's developed as a likeable, competent character. One thing I liked about Emilie is that she's very normal. She's not special in any magical way, she's not the daughter of famous wizards or nobility. On her own merits, Emilie is able to make something of herself. While she doesn't become the Queen of the Hollow World, she does manage to help out her friends. It's a nice personal journey that avoids the traps of Mary Sue characters and trite plotlines of saving the world.

The world itself is different from our own. There is a bit of magic, but it's more along the lines of steampunk than sword and sorcery. In this case, the sorcerers can use magic for illusions and for protective bubbles. There are steam ships, pistols, rifles, telegraphs and gaslights. It has a late 1800s vibe to it. The Hollow World adds another layer of fantasy with the inclusion of strange races of creatures. There's the fury, lizard like Cirathi, the iridescent merpeople of the Sealands, and some hostile plant people. The descriptions of the Hollow World and the people therein reminded me of Martha Wells' Books of the Raksura series. She has a knack for creating strange races that seem completely foreign but also intriguing. It keeps the story interesting and provides plenty of fuel for your imagination.

That said, it is a young adult novel, and the story doesn't quite break the magical bar set by Harry Potter. However, it's still a good book and very enjoyable. There is action, plenty of adventure and some nice character development throughout. The book also ends with some good resolution and no annoying cliff hangers. If you're looking for some entertaining escapism that ventures off to exotic locales, I recommend checking out Emilie & the Hollow World. It earns a four out of five.

I loved following along on Emilie's adventures. In many ways, she is the archetypical Plucky Young Girl, but she is refreshingly human and fallible, and she has a great knack for picking her mentors. Her world and adventures lead her to find lots of women who can lead her to her best self without being dictatorial about what kind of best self she wants to be performing.

The worldbuilding is as magical as Wells always manages, although more sketched-in than for her adult books, mostly because there is so much going on story-wise that there is not a lot that you can stop and look at.

Confession: In my head this whole thing looked exactly like that Disney version of Treasure Island, Treasure Planet. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0133240/

Emilie herself is actually willing to listen to reason, which I really appreciate. I understand why we end up with hot-headed heroines who go their own way, but sometimes it's so irritating that they make mistakes because of it. But Emilie changes her behavior based on input.

Read if: You are looking for a great mid-grade book to read aloud. You have a weakness for ships in the aether current.

Skip if: You are looking for something more YA/mature.

What a fun ride! Emilie's adventures take her (and us) to a beautifully detailed world that manages to feel very fresh as well as lived in and complete. The book is very fast-paced, but I still felt we got a chance to know the characters little by little as Emilie did.

Sometimes with books like this, you get the sense that the main character is a little too perfect or too lucky to be believable or likeable. There may be some of that here, but I think instead the book shows Emilie finding herself in a place and situation that she is utterly suited for. I really enjoyed watching her spread her wings.

This book is pure fun with just enough darkness to keep the stakes up for the characters. I can't wait for the next one!
