Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“Critically-acclaimed Monninger, known for outstanding character development and lavish landscapes, does it again with this tale of young New Hampshire brothers and the world they construct…Monninger presents a fascinating exploration about true love, fate, and the roads taken in life.” --PW

"Monninger has homed in on the beauty and cruelty of the natural world in this gripping and moving story of loss and understanding. Readers ... will revel in Monninger’s warm and graceful descriptions of rural New Hampshire and his adept understanding of the landscape of human relationships." --Booklist

"This ruminative, poetic novel may resonate with modern fiction readers as well as lovers of the outdoors." --Library Journal

"Joe Monninger beautifully captures the essence of childhood adventure and the sweet innocence of falling in love for the first time. Fans of John Irving, you have a new author to love." --Lisa Genova, New York Times bestselling author of Still Alice and Left Neglected

"Ask yourself when the last time it was that you read a book so beautiful and agonizing that it made you cry for joy and sorrow. The World As We Know It does that."  --Bookreporter

"Monninger’s imagery resonates long into the night, while your lamp burns oil because you cannot put the book down until the last page is turned." --Romantic Times (4 stars)

“There are people in our lives whom we love, and lose, and unfailingly long for. They orbit our hearts like Halley’s Comet, crossing into our universe only once, or if we are lucky, twice in a lifetime—this is a story of those kind of people—a tender, gentle, achingly beautiful tale that is impossible to put down.” --Jamie Ford, the New York Times bestselling author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet

"No one--no one at all--writes about nature and love the way Joe Monninger does. The combination of romantic love with adventure and a bone-deep understanding of the wild is both compelling and transcendent, and his arctic scenes are gripping and visceral. With echoes of Hemingway, THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT is nothing short of brilliant." --Luanne Rice, New York Times bestselling author of The Deep Blue Sea for Beginners

“The beauty and brutality of nature unfolds in The World As We Know It—a touching tale of love, the wounds of loss, and the fragile complexities within the human heart.” —Beth Hoffman, New York Times bestselling author of Saving CeeCee Honeycutt

Praise for Eternal on the Water:

"Love conquers all, the saying goes, but it can’t win out over the disease that befalls Mary Fury, the seemingly unflappable heroine at the center of Monninger’s poignant, if a bit overlong, novel. Fury has the gene for Huntington’s, a cruel affliction that attacks the body slowly, reducing a once healthy person to a mass of twitching muscles and nerves. Jonathan Cobb, a University of New Hampshire professor on sabbatical, learns the grim reality of Mary’s situation shortly after the two meet (and instantly fall in love) on the Allagash River. This is the land of Thoreau’s Walden Pond, and Cobb had come there to experience firsthand the pleasures of a simple life illustrated by its celebrated author. When Mary begins showing signs of Huntington’s, the two must cope with the inevitable, which includes honoring Mary’s wishes to live out her days as she sees fit. Monninger (Baby, 2007) is a gifted writer, and readers able to overlook a few maudlin moments will relish this eloquently rendered tale."

Praise for Eternal on the Water:

"Henry David Thoreau meets Nicholas Sparks in this poignant love story rooted in the forests of Maine...Monninger's keen eye for nature, subtle incorporation of indigenous myths and use of symbolism make for a memorable story of love and courage."

Présentation de l'éditeur

A lifetime of friendship begins the day brothers Ed and Allard save Sarah from drowning in an icy river near their rural New Hampshire home. Though their paths diverge through the years, the connection between the three endures until a heartbreaking tragedy in the remote mountains of Wyoming forces Sarah and Allard to confront the unthinkable. In their grief, they find themselves on separate journeys that test the enduring bonds of their relationship and time’s unremitting power to heal. Poignant and transformative, The World as We Know It is subtle and heartrending—a love story of friendship, nature, and the surprising twists that can alter our destinies forever.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Sweet but lacking 21 mars 2013
Par Violet Grace - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I was disappointed in this book especially after reading the reviews. I was excited to read it and enjoyed the first chapter or two, but then found it to be lacking plot and depth. At times I felt like I was reading a novel for Fourth Graders. The writing was a bit corny to me and very mundane. I kept waiting for SOMETHING to happen and it didn't until I found myself skimming over pages to finally get to the heart of the book.

Finally, my eyes were once again glued to the page and then it all became extremely predictable. It also seemed to jump way too fast for me and in hardly any time, they "all lived happily everafter!"

I guess if you want some light reading and enjoy a simply romantic story, this one is for you. I need more substance to a story, more twists and turns, more heart. The words were sweet and a few parts of it were good, but the rest left me bored and wanting more.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 just because it's hard to know what to say about a book that you love so much 10 octobre 2014
Par Shelby N. - Publié sur Amazon.com

It's taken me a few days to get this review written, just because it's hard to know what to say about a book that you love so much. I just loved everything about this book. The storyline was great, the characters were loveable, the writing was absolutely poetical, and I just could not put it down (once I actually had time to read it!).

I'm recommending this book to pretty much everyone I know, I loved it so much. It was the first book by this author I've read, and am now looking forward to checking out more of his novels.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 engrossing tale of life and love 27 mars 2012
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I've been on a streak of reading so-so books, so "The World As We Know It" was a wonderful breath of fresh air. I enjoyed every page. Author Joseph Monninger writes beautifully and the characters are richly drawn. We care about them deeply and feel their emotional highs and lows. The story takes place over many years and explores the deep bond between two brothers and the girl they save from drowning when they are children. I was moved to tears several times, stayed up late reading it and didn't want it to end. This is the first of Joseph Monninger's books that I have read, and I will definitely be reading the others.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful sense of place, but predictable 1 septembre 2012
Par Doc W8 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book's strength lies in the portrayal of places and nature, and their role in the development of the relationships of the characters. We lived in New Hampshire for 10 years, a place that still lives in my heart, and which thrives in this book. The author's love of the northern world (as we know it) shines through in the lovely descriptions of the Baker River, and of the Arctic. If only the people had been as interesting! In its portrayal of men against the Arctic, this book pales next to Dan Simmon's The Terror...but that's a book my book club would never read, alas.

The first half of the book was a delightful "coming of age" story, but by the end I thought I was reading a Nicholas Sparks.
