Présentation de l'éditeur

Nadia’s memories of her father are not happy ones. An angry, secretive man, he died when she was thirteen, leaving his past shrouded in mystery. When a stranger claims to have known her father during his early years in Eastern Europe, she agrees to meet—only to watch the man shot dead on a city sidewalk. With his last breath, he whispers a cryptic clue, one that will propel Nadia on a high-stakes treasure hunt from New York to her ancestral homeland of Ukraine. There she meets an unlikely ally: Adam, a teenage hockey prodigy who honed his skills on the abandoned cooling ponds of Chernobyl. Physically and emotionally scarred by radiation syndrome, Adam possesses a secret that could change the world—if she can keep him alive long enough to do it. A twisting tale of greed, secrets, and lies, The Boy from Reactor 4 will keep readers guessing until the final heart-stopping page.

Biographie de l'auteur

Orest Stelmach was born in Connecticut, the child of Ukrainian immigrants. He didn’t speak English until he began school as a child, going on to earn academic degrees from Dartmouth College and the University of Chicago. Along the way he earned his living washing dishes and stocking department-store shelves, later teaching English in Japan and managing international investments. In 2012, his short story “In Persona Christi” was published in the Mystery Writers of America anthology Vengeance. He speaks Ukrainian, Spanish, and Japanese. The Boy from Reactor 4 is his first novel.

Lu en anglais.
Une course poursuite à travers le globe en passant par l’Ukraine. Les descriptions donnent envie d’aller visiter le pays. L’histoire est rondement menée et ne laisse pas place à l’ennui.

Why was I not surprised when the contents of a locket, which is at the center of the tale, were revealed? In the very fast moving thriller the reader learns quickly to expect very sharp twists and turns in the plot. Expect the unreasonable, the unlikely. Too frequently, randomly introduced characters complicate the plot. Thus, not only is the plot unnecessarily convoluted, but the number of characters is much bigger than needed in telling a rather interesting tale.

In a novel, the events must take place somewhere, and here most occur in Lower East side of NYC, in the area where many Ukrainians reside, in Ukraine and Russia. The author, being of Ukrainian descent, attempts to inform the reader about Ukraine and Ukrainians. In this he abysmally fails. To an informed reader the author frequently displays how little he knows. Shevchenko and Franko, two giants of Ukrainian literature, the first died in 1861 the other in 1916 are said to be victims of the evil Soviets. Another surprising revelation is that in year 988 (the year Ukraine accepted Christianity) Batu Khan, the grandson of Genghis Khan, destroyed Kyiv. Such an event occurred in 1240. These are gross errors, but there are may other places in the novel where Stelmach reveals how little he knows Ukrainian and lacks command of facts about Ukraine..

If I were to give a grade, I would give Stelmach a B for creativity but an overall C for the book, and advise him read and reread, correct and edit with much greater care..

HASH(0x8ed9aaf8) étoiles sur 5 Loved the Boy from Reactor Four 19 mars 2013
Par Pags - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Fast paced with interesting characters I loved the Boy from Reactor Four. Nothing traditional in the way this story is constructed, many unexpected twists and turns. The author took the time to finish strong. Too many books set up well and get lazy at the finish. This book kept me hooked all the way to the last page. Plus Chernobyl today is a fascinating place. One I hadn't thought a lot about. Stelmach did his homework here too.
There will be moments when your stomach muscles tighten with suspense, and times when you laugh out loud. Plus you are left with the question; what is in the locket? Now I'm waiting for the sequel!

All is all a very entertaining novel. Well done!

HASH(0x8ed9add4) étoiles sur 5 Wholly original, can't put it down! 19 mars 2013

Stelmach masterfully interweaves multiple plotlines that keep you guessing all the way through. He does this while still creating original characters with a lot of depth, each of whom is distinct, with their own agenda, which isn't always what you think it is, and countless plot twists arise as a result. It's easy to get behind the protagonist, Nadia Tesla, who is troubled by her past and not so sure she's so interested in this subterfuge that seems to be her present and future. But her quick-wittedness and resourcefulness, her mental acuity and physical endurance make her easy to admire. I never saw what was coming and enjoyed it all the way through. The action sequences were a particularly fun and suspenseful ride. The final sequence is fantastic - I couldn't read it fast enough! Stelmach has a wholly original voice, and one that will keep me coming back for future installments. Great book!

HASH(0x8ed9accc) étoiles sur 5 No Emotional Value. 29 mars 2013
Par B. S. Diederich - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
I probably shouldn't have read this after a week of re-reading some classics, but the very beginning seemed interesting so I kept going, but it rapidly deteriorates after the first chapter.

If I were to take a piece of white paper and cut out a figure and draw a face on it (naming it NADIA) it would have more personality than the main character of this book. If I placed my paper doll on the coffee table and had her periodically jump from it to the couch to the love seat to the couch (New York, to the plane, to the Ukraine, to the taxi, to the motorcycle, to Chernobyl, to the caves, to the plane to the bus, train, truck....to the ice...to the plane...to the city....blah blah blah)--well, you get the gist of this book. Honestly--so much fast-paced but trivial action it becomes quite irritating.
Sadly there aren't enough details to make you feel as though you are IN a foreign country (try the ice rink scene in 'Gorky Park'/ heck, even the first hour of waking up in `A Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich' has one shivering uncontrollably as though you were really there!); the action isn't even realistic: Nadia is trapped in a cave filled with tourists and in a brief sentence or two the author has her out by crawling through their legs--and she's OFF AGAIN to another area in moments--maybe she just transports! There is no mystique or suspense.

When I read something I want to FEEL EMOTION! I want chills during a frightening passage, I want to blink back tears during despair, I want to grip my book tightly with excitement....but there are NO emotional qualities within. Everyone is a blank paper doll.

HASH(0x8ebbe330) étoiles sur 5 Not quite sure what this book was about as it is a bit messy and hard to follow in places . . . 19 mars 2013
Par J. Stroh - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire d‘un membre du Club des Testeurs ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
There are a LOT of story lines and sub story lines in this book. Each character seems to have its' own story that continues all the way through the book. A bit unusual for that to happen and it does not do any justice to this book.

Some of the story line scenarios were hard to believe especially when you have someone shot in New York City and one hears or sees anything even when the body turns up missing and the shop keepers are oblivious to any crime that was committed.

There were a few other places in the book where it just didn't add up at all. Another was an assassin that was found out before killing the victim and she starts crying. Really?
Poor character development of some and over development in others.

The dialog was a bit off too with dialog being spoken then all of a sudden a weird phrase pops up into it that doesn't really belong there. Calling workers on Wall Street a "criminals"? Business partners constantly beating on each other and trying to kill one another? It it just didn't work for me.

Sorry, not a fan of this book.
