Ce livre est super. La fin vaut vraiment le coup. Je pense que si on connait la Reine de Coeur on sait comment elle est à la fin mais tout est si bien raconté! Et son histoire, la manière dont elle est devenue "heartless", j'ai adoré, on est supris de page en page. L'auteure nous fait penser que ça va se passer de telle manière puis quelque-chose arrive donc rien ne se passe comme prévu. Bref, un coup de coeur pour ce livre!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 No one gets a happy ending. 17 novembre 2016
Par Carina - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I loved this book. It gives you the famous quotes from Alice in wonderland like "How is a raven like a writing desk", "Off with its head", and "I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast" to name a few. But the entire story is completely different with just one small mention about Alice the rest of the story is about how the Queen of Hearts became who she is. And it is not a happy ending story. I don't think anyone is happy at the end of this story.

Marissa Meyer describes everything so well that I believe that I am in Hearts myself. Or that I just have watched the movie Heartless because it was so vivid in my imagination because she describes everything so well.

You also have all the normal characters of from Alice in Wonderland like the White Rabbit, The mad hatter, the Cheshire cat and the caterpillar. This story doesn't just so how the Queen of Hearts became the way she is but also how the Mad hatter became mad. There are scenes pulled out of Alice in Wonderland but are different to fit this book. Like the croquet with the hedgehogs and the flamingos.

At the end of the story, you feel bad for all the characters even the loopy King of Hearts. Even though I know how it is going to end. That Catherine will become the Queen of Hearts, I find myself hoping and hoping that the ending would end differently. That Catherine will get her happy ending. But this story is all about how Catherine became the Queen of Hearts, and it is not a happy story.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent New Novel From Marissa Meyer 12 mars 2017
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
“One to be a murderer. One to be a Martyr. One to be a Monarch. One to go Mad.”

Let me just start by saying: read this NOW ! You won't regret it, even if you aren't the biggest fan of Alice in Wonderland. Marissa Meyer crafts an ingenious, fantastic story that takes you on a whirlwind adventure. You honestly never want to stop reading!! This was the first book I have read by Ms. Meye, but it certainly won't be my last. I have been meaning to check out her other novels, but Heartless is giving me the push I need to jump right into those others stories. There is a lot to love about this story, but warning...it'll make you pretty hungry for some baked goods while reading.

While I can't compare to previous books she has written, Marissa Meyer has achieved an excellently balanced story that is full of action, forbidden love, and that wonderfully weird essence of Wonderland. The beauty in this story is that you really don't need to enjoy the original story. You might say that's odd because why would you want to read a story set in the world of Alice when you dislike the original story? Well, let's put it this way...do you like strong characters, a unique plot, and a love for the slightly weird/nonsensical things in life? Then you're going to enjoy this novel! Obviously, there are ties to Wonderland and you never truly forget the setting while reading, but it is an incredibly original idea that just makes you lose yourself in the story.

“But hoping," he said, "is how the impossible can be possible after all.”

Catherine, our MC and resident baker, just wants to open her own bakery and live out her dreams. But that's a no go when she has to be the future bride to the King of Hearts. The one thing I loved about Cath is her characterization throughout the story. Ms. Meyer did an excellent job at this and made the book be fueled by Cath's anger and frustration at not being able to love who she wants to AND not being able to achieve her dreams. Her frustration is palpable, and the pages are filled to the brim with tension. I loved watching Cath descend into that fierce and ferocious woman we know as the Queen of Hearts, and honestly, I would entirely believe that this is her backstory.

“The easiest way to steal something, is for it to be given willingly.”

We have the requisite love interest...and boy did I fall for him! Every time he left, I was desperate for more scenes of him and Cath together. There was a interesting twist that I definitely didn't see coming with his character and his companion, and that just made the story even better for me. Some favorites are still in the story as well: the Cheshire Cat, the Jabberwock, the Mad Hatter, etc. It's important to note that every character has a very special role to play.

I would highly recommend checking out this novel if you have the chance because it is not one to miss! I was a little hesitant going in because stories that incorporate Alice in Wonderland can be pretty hit or miss for me, but Marissa Meyer did a phenomenal job and really won me over within a couple pages of her magnificent storytelling. With riddles, excitement, and treats that will leave your mouth watering, this book has it all and is a definite must read of 2017! And in the spirit of a Wonderlandian novel, I'll leave you with this:

“Why is a raven like a writing-desk?”

Happy reading :)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Not a Retelling - But Better! 3 janvier 2017
Par Christy Hayes - Publié sur Amazon.com

“But hoping," he said, "is how the impossible can be possible after all.”

We all know who the Queen of Hearts is but we don't know how she became the tyrant she is within Wonderland or her motivations. If you've read Meyer's Fairest, you know how well she writes villain's backstories and this is no exception.

Catherine is a sweet, sweet-creating girl who has big aspirations of opening her own bakery someday. That day is not today, unfortunately, because her parents aspire to improve their station by marrying their daughter off to the king. Of course, Cath does not want to marry the king, not only because he has little backbone or substance but because she is in love with someone else. Jest, the court joker whom you will fall in love with just as she does.

Heartless is not an Alice in Wonderland retelling but rather inspired by the characters and world prior to Alice arriving. They all have their own backstory to tell and Meyer gives it to them, much to all of our delight. This book gets very dark at times, which I appreciate. The story of a girl going from sweet and inspired to a monarch who deals with disappointment by death is not going to be fluffy. Characters such as Cheshire provide just enough comic relief to get you through the end.

Oh, and you'll never think of turtles the same way again.

The narrator in the audiobook will be familiar to those who listened to the Lunar Chronicles. While it's clear she has a range of characterizations she can provide, I found her portrayal that mirrors the animated movies to be distracting and uninspired. I nearly gave up listening due to the high-pitched, incredibly loud portrayal of the White Rabbit. I recommend reading the book versus listening (plus it's beautiful!).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Must Read for Any Lover of the Alice Books 8 avril 2017
Par vorpalblade - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Working in a library, I very seldom purchase books anymore; however, there are books that I want to have in my collection either because I will reread them or I save them for my daughter as she grows up. This one was both. Further proof that some of the best writing today is coming from the YA genre, this backstory to both Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass is a nothing less than a piece of brilliance by Meyer.

In Alice in Wonderland, the Queen of Hearts is a flat, frightening, if sometimes humourous character. Meyer has the job of taking Cath, the only daughter of a noble family with a secret dream of opening a bakery, and turning her into that one-dimensional character that everyone knows so well. For adults who've read and treasure the Alice books, Meyer's amazing ability to work in everyone from the Mad Hatter, to the Mock Turtle, will have you smiling as you read. Her ability to quietly paint Cath into a corner from which there is no escape, even as we, the readers, which one for her, is masterfully done.

A must for anyone who loves Alice and wants to revisit those worlds.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Worthy, Intriguing Backstory for Alice in Wonderland's Queen of Hearts 29 mars 2017
Par Taylor White - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
(Sidenote: I wrote this review before having read Meyer's Lunar Chronicles.)

My Rating: 3.75/5 stars

“Now mine eyes see the heart that once we did search for, and I fear this heart shall be mended, nevermore.”
As someone who has not read Meyer’s other series–the Lunar Chronicles–I should probably explain why I chose to read Heartless:

1. I heard you didn’t have to read the LC before it.
2. It’s a standalone, so I would be able to sample Meyer’s writing without potentially abandoning a series.
3. It’s the Queen of Heart’s backstory. That’s right, from Alice in Wonderland. Which also means the main character is a villain–and I live for villains.
4. And, okay, let’s be real here. The hardcover. With the dust jacket and, especially, without, it’s stunning.

“‘These things do not happen in dreams, dear girl,’ he said, vanishing up to his neck. ‘They happen only in nightmares.'”

In the land of Hearts, Lady Catherine Pinkerton–Cath–is seventeen and has a passion for baking that easily rivals Cookie Monster’s love for cookies–although, she does love those too (any dessert, really). She dreams to one day co-own a bakery with her business-savvy best friend Mary Ann–currently her family’s maid–and to share her masterpieces with all of Hearts.

“This was why she enjoyed baking. A good dessert could make her feel like she’d created joy at the tips of her fingers. Suddenly, the people around the table were no longer strangers. They were friends and confidantes, and she was sharing with them her magic.”

But as heir to the Marquess and Marchioness of Rock Turtle Cove, how dare she set such low expectations for her life? Her mother strongly disapproves of Cath’s “hobby,” deeming it “a job fit for servants.” The King of Hearts, however, just so happens to adore her creations, and for that sole reason her mother continues to tolerate it. The King–get this–is unmarried and–big surprise–has his heart set on Catherine to be his bride and the future Queen of Hearts.

But Cath does not wish to be queen–after all, how would her bakery dream be possible as a queen? She also has zero interest in the King. At least 15 years her senior, and several inches shorter, His Majesty is a decidedly simple man. Although he is exceedingly kind and generous, Cath has no romantic feelings for him whatsoever.

“A heart, once stolen, can never be taken back.”

Caught between wanting to please her mother and wanting to pursue her confectionary dreams, yet another variable enters the equation when Catherine finds herself gravitating towards the charming new court joker, Jest. The night before they meet, she dreams of his disarming yellow eyes and has the distinct feeling he has taken something that belongs to her.

“‘It is a dangerous thing to unbelieve something only because it frightens you.’”

In addition to Cath’s internal conflict over her future, Hearts is riddled with a massive–pun intended–problem. The mythical creature known as the Jabberwocky is wreaking havoc, stealing and devouring its citizens. Hearts desperately needs a hero(ine) to put an end to it.

Riddles and rhymes, absurd characters and disappearing cats, tea parties and flamingo croquet, magical foods and magical hats, romance and vengeance–this book has it all. Meyer has perfectly captured the nonsensical atmosphere found in Lewis Carroll’s enchanting world.

I also think this book was a strong backstory for the Queen of Hearts. Like Regina from Once Upon a Time, we see that she wasn’t born evil; she was a caring, ambitious young woman who was deeply wronged, and the events that take place in this book forever change her. And that’s what makes a good villain–a good backstory.

“‘Fascinating, isn’t it, how often heroic and foolish turn out to be one and the same.’”

All in all, I enjoyed Heartless. It’s hard and strange to read a book that you know is ultimately going to end up a certain way, but nonetheless I still appreciated the ride, the colorful characters, and the intriguing world Meyer gave us. I will soon, hopefully, be reading the Lunar Chronicles.
