NOS4A2 est un épais roman qui doit faire appel à la patience du lecteur. Même si l'histoire est riche les événements avancent assez lentement. Prenez patience, ce roman est assez monumental.

C'est l'histoire de personnages qui se sont créés un univers tellement riche qu'ils arrivent à quitter la réalité pour la façonner avec leur univers. Nous avons donc:
- Vic McQueen, qui utilise son vélo adoré pour traverser un pont magique l'emmenant à ce qui est perdu. Elle a juste à penser fort à ce qu'elle veut trouver. La première fois que cela s'est produit, son père et sa mère se disputaient bruyamment sur un bracelet que sa mère aurait oublié sur la plage, car sa mère aurait été trop ivre pour y penser. Vic veut échapper à l'horrible énième dispute entre ses parents et va sans y penser chercher le bracelet, qu'elle ramènera en disant qu'il était coincé entre les sièges de la voiture.
- Charles Manx, l'affreux méchant, qui utilise une RollsRoyes avec la plaque "NOS4A2" pour emmener des enfants dans un parc d'attraction imaginaire sur la thématique de Noël. Les enfants ne feront pas de manège...
- une fan de Scrabble lisant l'avenir dans les lettres du jeu

Ces trois personnages ont en commun une énorme solitude subie et une vie réelle sordide. Ils finissent par vivre en marginaux. Alcool, drogues, auto-mutilations etc., tout pour maîtriser leur don qui leur coûte la santé et aussi pour rester ancrés dans la réalité.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Inhuman Condition… 4 juin 2016
Par Madelon Wilson - Publié sur Amazon.com

As I long-time reader and collector of vampire tales, I had no trouble reading the title of this novel as Nosferatu, the dastardly vampire of black and white, silent film fame. My interest in vampires started to wane when romance writers usurped the trope and made it insipid, but, as always, hope springs eternal in the collector's heart that something new and enthralling will come along.

It would be unfair to compare Joe Hill to the storytellers who captured imaginations when he was just a boy even when he writes a line or two in direct homage. He has his own voice and his own tales to tell. In NOS4A2, we find out that he isn't the least bit shy about taking a tried and true trop and making it his own.

Prepare to have your disbelief suspended and your heart strings pulled so that you are reading through tears that may or may not slip down your cheeks. Character development is key. Yes, there are good guys and bad guys but blurring the lines between the two are the characters whose heart and soul and fallibility make you want to know them better. There are no minor, or insignificant characters here. And, one of the best characters is not even human… maybe it is as real as an old wooden structure can be, or maybe it is an ethereal creation of thought and need.

This is the first novel of Joe Hill's that I've read. Color me impressed! His use of language is both harsh and beautiful, solid prose and thoughtful poetry. He has painted images of both brilliance and insanity with bold strokes. There is nothing I love more than a great story. When that tale is told by manipulating language to evoke form and substance, it is a glorious thing to read.

Be sure you read The Acknowledgements… There is a nice list and a naughty list… seriously, this book isn't over till it's over.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The torch cannot be passed...technically. No spoilers. 24 août 2013
Par DesertGirl - Publié sur Amazon.com

The title led me to believe this would be a novel about vampires, and seeing as Joe Hill is Joe Hill I wondered if it might resemble his father's Salem's Lot. Well, all of those assumptions turned out to be quite off the mark. I can happily say however, this novel was riveting. The torch from Stephen King to son cannot be passed technically since the old man is still writing, but I can tell you, I am very excited and pleased that Joe has taken up the helm.

As a long time Stephen King fan I've read most of his books, some of them I loved, some I liked and some I didn't. Joe Hill's style reminds me of King's earlier writing: The Shining, Pet Semetary, Christine. He writes very well about people that aren't particularly grandiose, you could know them, pass them on the street, which makes everything that happens to them and everything they do that much more poignant, a real punch in the gut! I always loved this about King and I loved it here. There was a time in this book towards the end I had pools of tears in my eyes, not because some of these people are quite bad (they are), but because some of them that are good, and dammit, you wished you knew them, you cheer for them, want them to make it. I stayed up late for two nights reading this on my Kindle, I was often times frightened, angry, excited and touched. This book really is a roller coaster and you'll find a story about childhood, loss, love, imagination, horror, fear and redemption. There are peaks of action, moments of surprise and shock and touching moments, when you are brought back to Earth and reminded, it's all happening to regular folk. This is the kind of book that stays with you. I read Pet Semetary over two decades ago and I still can find myself thinking of Gage, Rachel and Louis from time to time. I have a feeling I won't soon be forgetting Vic, Bing, Manx, Lou or that damned 1938 Rolls Royce Wraith!

I read and loved Joe Hill's Locke & Key, Vol. 1: Welcome to Lovecraft Locke and Key graphic novel series and highly recommend that as well. Now I am off to see what else I can read by Joe. Any further recommendations would be appreciated!

Happy reading!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Stephen King readers should try this one! 13 juin 2017
Par Lisa Dunckley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Wow, this reminded me so much of something Stephen King would have written—then I remembered that Joe Hill is his son!

Beginning of the book was great, super scary and suspenseful. The middle dragged for a bit, and I actually ended up putting it aside and reading something else before coming back to it, but upon coming back for a second try it did pick up and had a rousing finish.

Characters were very good—the bad guy was appropriately creepy (and hey, who doesn't want to hate a guy that kidnaps children?). Lou, the father of Vic's child, is an unlikely hero. He is obese and sweaty and hairy, but strong and gentle and loves Vic and their son Wayne. Vic, the main character, is also flawed. She is purposeful and willing to do whatever it takes to rescue her son, even risking her life—but she is a substance abuser and may have mental problems. Although, her mental issues are what let her have even a chance against Charlie Manx, the seemingly immortal man who takes children back to his place, Christmasland. Christmasland exists in another dimension, and Charlie has the ability to cross to it. Vic is one of the few other people who can cross—and she can only do it on a bike and over an old covered bridge that appears when necessary.

I loved the part about the bridge being able to be seen by others, but only being “there” for Vic to cross.

I would recommend this book to all Stephen King readers, it is so similar to his stuff. This is the second book I've read now by Joe Hill, I have to say that I enjoyed Horns more than this one, but still recommend this author.

Wow. Seriously. I wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading this. I love Stephen King. Perhaps that's unfair to say while reviewing one of his son's first books, especially since Hill worked so hard to get published without standing on his dad's shoulders. But wow. I'll apologize in advance for the comparisons made here between the two- but it was the first question on my mind since discovering, without having read the book, that Joe Hill was actually Joe King.

I can think of times where I've been let down by the offspring of talented people. This was not one of those times. Joe Hill is just as inventive a story teller as his father. While you can certainly see King's influence peeking through you can also see that Hill has his own style.

Not since "Under the Dome" have I eaten up a book of this size in a weekend. I couldn't put it down. King and Hill have this incredible talent for writing characters that feel real. They are flawed. They are loveable at times and completely unlikeable at others.

However: I've seen King criticized again and again for writing crappy endings. This is where the differences between the two authors shine. The ending of NOS4A2 is not what I wanted and also exactly what it needed to be. You will not be disappointed in this ending. (Disclaimer: I don't take issue with King's endings, but I can see where others might.)

This isn't the review NOS4A2 deserves- and for that, sorry am I. But I also couldn't bear to spoil anything about this for anyone. Read it. I downloaded it to my kindle and will probably buy a physical copy to stick in my dusty bookshelves. Someday the pages will be as well worn and loved and bent as my copy of Under the Dome and The Green Mile, because it's that rare kind of book that deserves to be read more than once.

I will definitely be on the lookout for more of Hill's work in the future, and already have Horns downloaded and ready to read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another win for a new reader. 11 juin 2017

I first read The Fireman from Joe Hill and immediately felt that I had to keep reading his books. I chose this over Heart Shaped Box by a recommendation from my brother and now appear to be working my way backwards through Joe Hills novels. With the end of each chapter, regardless of outcome, you can't help but feel satisfied, like a perfect meal after a long trip. Watching the characters struggle with what is happening to them, trying to get control of a situation only to be thrown into a tail spin, even the smallest victories are celebrated. The narrative is amazing as it leaps between characters perspectives. A timeline is built and you know where each character stands, anticipating the inevitable collision of story arcs. While a lot of the events are foreshadowed, how they play out is still surprising. Both terrifying and cheerful.
