Kurzbeschreibung

“Never underestimate the power of a good story.”

Good advice…especially when a story can kill you.

For most people, the story of their lives is just that: the accumulation of time, encounters, and actions into a cohesive whole. But for an unfortunate few, that day-to-day existence is affected—perhaps infected is a better word—by memetic incursion: where fairy tale narratives become reality, often with disastrous results.

That's where the ATI Management Bureau steps in, an organization tasked with protecting the world from fairy tales, even while most of their agents are struggling to keep their own fantastic archetypes from taking over their lives. When you're dealing with storybook narratives in the real world, it doesn't matter if you're Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, or the Wicked Queen: no one gets a happily ever after.

Indexing is New York Times bestselling author Seanan McGuire’s new urban fantasy where everything you thought you knew about fairy tales gets turned on its head.

This book was initially released in episodes as a Kindle Serial. All episodes are now available for immediate download as a complete book. Learn more about Kindle Serials

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Seanan McGuire was born and raised in Northern California, where she has lived for the majority of her life. She spends most of her time writing or watching television, but also draws a semi-autobiographical comic strip and has released several albums of filk music (science fiction and fantasy themed folk music). To relax, Seanan enjoys travel, and frequents haunted corn mazes, aquariums with good octopus habitats, and Disney Parks. Seanan is remarkably good at finding reptiles and amphibians wherever she goes, sometimes to the dismay of the people she happens to be traveling with.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Snow White or Snow White 24. Oktober 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Ok, das war mal echt was anderes zu lesen. Man stelle sich vor, die Charaktere der Grimmschen Märchen gäbe es wirklich. Da kommt in Realität schon mal Chaos auf. Das Buch las sich sehr schön, lediglich mit der Namensgleichheit der beiden Snow Whites hatte ich so meine Problem, meine Märchenzeit als Kind hat halt komplett in Deutsch stattgefunden, da ist das eindeutig. Kann man empfehlen

I have no idea what was going on, and found the whole premise unenjoyable. Not funny, not gripping, not coherent.

Ein Grundkurs zu den uns bekannten Märchenfiguren und so gar nicht vergleichbar mit Incryptid oder Toby. Allerdings ist der unvergleichliche Sarkasmus der Hauptfigur geblieben. Es macht einfach Spass, Bücher von Seanan zu lesen.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Possibly An Unpopular Opinion 10. April 2014
Von Dianne E. Socci-Tetro - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I can already see that this review is not going to be a popular one - but here goes anyway!

I read this as a 'whole' book not as a serial, so perhaps this is why I found it so unlikable. Each chapter contained most of the same information as the previous one, so that made the book rather repetitive.

It was unusual in that almost all of the characters are unlikable, the story was inconsistent and overly drawn out. The mystery aspect might have played better, in my opinion, had the conundrum showed up earlier in the book - it would have give the reader a chance to build up a little more excitement. The conclusion was interesting, however the rest of the book for me was dull and most of the times confusing.

If you do not know your Grimm's Fairy Tales very well or even the Disney versions, you may be very lost during most of this book.

Some may say that it takes a while for this novel to get off of the ground, and they love it - but I am of the thought that if I have to almost force myself to reach the half-way mark, then the author may not be doing their job very well.

I adore the October Daye books immensely and am almost always engrossed and enraptured by them - unfortunately for me, this was one experiment that didn't work out as well as I had hoped.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Full Serial Review - Original and Enticing 25. Oktober 2013
Von Miss Bonnie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Indexing was first released as a Kindle Serial and was a bi-weekly mini-party every Tuesday considering how eagerly I awaited the latest installment. The first episode is epic and I can’t even begin to express my love for it. The introduction to this fairy-tale world was perfection. It got a full 5 stars from me and set the bar extremely high for the subsequent stories. This fairy tale world was extremely similar in scope to the graphic novel series ‘Fables’ but in comparison I found the characters were more vibrant and witty and infinitely entertaining. Each Kindle serial, for the most part, managed as a stand-alone and didn’t leave you too exasperated with having to wait another two weeks for more. I say ‘for the most part’ because something happened around episode 8 (out of a total of 12) that took the series into a total nosedive, but I’ll get into that more in a minute.

The ATI (Aarne-Thompson Index) Management Bureau is a covert government agency that monitors fairy tale manifestations and prevents them from getting out of control. According to Wiki, “The Aarne–Thompson tale type index is a multivolume listing designed to help folklorists identify recurring plot patterns in the narrative structures of traditional folktales, so that folklorists can organize, classify, and analyze the folktales they research.” This index system is used as the basis for classifying manifestations that happen in the real world, where children are born predisposed to being a Sleeping Beauty or a Snow White or even a Pied Piper. If unleashed, their fairy tale influence could wreak havoc on the world. All manner of fairy tales are covered: Peter Pans and Cinderellas, Donkeyskins and Beautiful Vassilisas, a Mother Goose, Wicked Stepsisters, Billy Goats Gruff, The Showmaker and the Elves, etc.

So what worked well? Personally I loved the combination of fairy tales and urban fantasy that ultimately made up this story. It was imaginative and creative and really enjoyed the details that went into this. Each individual was given a bit of back story although I believe this could have been further expounded on to showcase their growth. While I didn't end up preferring one character over another, they all as a whole really added life and charm to this story.

In the end though, I was left ultimately disappointed. When thinking back on the story as a whole, I think it was easy to overlook the choppy feel of the writing since we’re only given bits and pieces at a time. If read as a whole I think it would have been far more obvious and apparent that the story lacked a fully fleshed out plot and was really rather feeble. It didn't feel as if it was planned as a full novel and was instead planned out as each episode was written. Ultimately, the ending felt strange and disconnected from where it seemed like the story was going and left me with far more unanswered questions than I like.

3.0 von 5 Sternen 3.5 stars 2. Oktober 2013
Von PM - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I go back and forth on how much I like this serial. I like the characters...enough -- but I don't really feel like they do anything new. The villain was terribly predictable, in part because there wasn't really anyone else it could be. I think, however, that my lackluster feelings are in part due to the delivery. Every week would be good; but every two weeks doesn't work -- it makes it way too easy to be dissatisfied with the chapters, because in many cases, they aren't complete stories the way that ... say, Scalzi's Human Division serial was last winter.

I do hope that it goes to a second season -- but I hope that if it does, McGuire writes it enough in advance to be able to deliver every week -- or else, makes sure that she makes each installment a more complete story in itself.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Lame effort 10. Mai 2014
Von WisteriaM - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I read 80% of "Indexing" and then I had to stop; The premise was interesting, and I really did want to know how it all turned out, but it just kept getting more and more painful to read.

I thought the author had a good idea, but the writing seemed so lazy and sloppy: it's like she wrote every episode at the last minute of the deadline. There were numerous stylistic missteps, missed opportunities to add veracity to the world and its characters, and a glaring lack of internal logic (even a fantasy story has to make some kind of sense). Also the constant lapsing into the passive voice really drove me nuts, that and the fact that the author never met a gerund that she didn't like.

[SPOLER ALERT]

When I got to the part where a vicitim is left floating face-down in a pool because they wanted the boss to see him where he died (??), and they said that the victim was covered in blood but none of it was his (how would they know any of that, if he's still floating in water???), I literally said "what?" out loud. Then they had someone swim underneath him to check if his throat was cut. (????)

Similarly, they save someone who's about to shoot up tainted heroin, then call a squad car to send her to the hospital. If she didn't shoot up and is okay, why the hospital, and why would a squad car take her there instead of an ambulance?

And why did one character say that a certain smell was strongest in the kitchen they were in, when they haven't even been in any of the other rooms yet?

[END SPOILER]

I gave it two stars because I thought the story itself was somewhat interesting, but trying to read it was like watching an obscure foreign film with the wrong subtitles. I understand this author has a fan base that loves her writing, and that makes me sad for our future literacy. Encouraging this kind of writing does the author no service, she may never improve as long as she keeps getting 4- and 5-star reviews for this kind of dreck.

4.0 von 5 Sternen E-Serial Fairy Tale 22. Mai 2013
Von Pacey1927 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
"Indexing" is a Kindle e-serial. As I understand it a new chapter will be released every week or two and it will automatically update with the new chapters when they are available. I am an avid fan of the October Daye series and I liked the premise of "Indexing" and thought I would try it. The idea behind this book is that fairy tales are real...and they can get really ugly when the elements all come together to bring to life a particular fairy tale. Sometimes intervention is needed and that is exactly what the ATI Management Bureau does. They step in and try to minimize damage when fairy tales start to come to life. I really liked this story although it was way too short and I eagerly await the next installment. I did think the plot had similar elements to Mercedes Lackey's 500 Kingdoms series but this is handled in a completely different way and in a modern setting. I am intrigued by the characters who belong to the ATI. They each have interesting backgrounds being hinted at and I can't wait to find out more about them. So far so good, I am just hoping I am patient enough for the e-serial format.
