Pressestimmen

"Night Road is one special book that can transform the lives of readers by influencing how they think about certain important life issues. The reader becomes a first-hand witness to the pitfalls of parenthood, mortality, heartbreak, guilt, life choices, grief, forgiveness, and much more. In short, the entire range of human emotions are explored in this...hopeful book about the triumphant power of the human spirit in the process of forgiveness."
New York Journal of Books

"…movingly written and plotted with the heartless skill of a Greek tragedy, you’ll keep turning the pages until the last racking sob."
The Daily Mail

"A rich, multilayered reading experience, and an easy recommendation for book clubs."
Library Journal (starred review)

"Hannah masterfully details the unraveling of a family."
People magazine

"Kristin Hannah is back in top form with Night Road…it will hook Hannah fans from start to suspenseful finish"
The Seattle Times

"Kristin Hannah lets loose here, daring her readers to keep the tears at bay."
Newark  Star-Ledger

"Hannah effectively builds tension as the novel moves towards the pivotal tragedy and maintains suspense afterward not only with several surprising twists but, more subtly, with the way she limns the grief and eventual healing of her appealing characters."
— Booklist, Reviewed by Kristine Huntley

Kurzbeschreibung

Lexi and Mia are inseparable from the moment they start high school. Different in so many ways – Lexi is an orphan and lives with her aunt on a trailer park, while Mia is a golden girl blessed with a loving family, and a beautiful home. Yet they recognize something in each other which sets them apart from the crowd, and Mia comes to rely heavily on Lexi’s steadfast friendship. Mia’s beloved, and incredibly good-looking, twin brother Zach, finds life much less complicated than his sister. Jude thought she’d never have to worry about her son, that he’d always sail through life easily achieving whatever he, and his family, wanted and expected – but then he fell in love. The summer they graduated is a time they will always remember, and one they could never forget. It is a summer of love, best friends, shared confidences and promises. Then one moment one night changes them all forever. As hearts are broken, loyalties challenged and hopes dashed, the time has come to leave childhood behind and learn to face the future.

Other books by Kristin Hannah include Firefly Lane, the poignant, powerful story of two women and the friendship that becomes the bulkhead of their lives.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Kristin Hannah kann es besser... 13. April 2012
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Dies ist das erste Buch von Kristin Hannah, das ich negativ kritisieren muss. Ich habe die vorhergehenden Bücher - Magic Hour, Firefly Lane und True Colors - allesamt verschlungen. Mit diesem Exemplar kann ich nicht so richtig etwas anfangen. Erstmal startet das Buch mit einer Teenager-Geschichte, die der von Firefly Lane inhaltlich sehr ähnelt - zu sehr. Die Teenager sind aber zudem noch total unsympathisch und klischeehaft dargestellt. Es passiert auch nicht viel und Langeweile kommt auf... Ich hätte das Buch zur Mitte hin fast schon enttäuscht weggelegt, da gab es dann doch noch die für Hannah typische Wendung, die ich hier jedoch nicht offenlegen möchte. Die Geschichte wurde danach zumindest fesselnder, für die Charaktere konnte ich mich aber bis zum Schluss nicht wirklich erwärmen. Ich kann daher nicht empfehlen, dieses Buch zu kaufen. Die oben erwähnten Vorgänger sind dagegen echte Knaller. Hoffentlich findet Frau Hannah zur alten Form zurück...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Traurig, echt, aber super! 6. September 2011
Von lauraW.
Format:Taschenbuch
Dieses Buch fängt sehr...schön an. Wie die beiden Mädels sich kennen lernen. Ich finde es schön, wie man die Familie kennen lernt. Es ist Fesselnd!!!! Vorallem wenn man sich etwas reingelesen hat!
Es ist sehr gut, und vorallem ziemlich wirklichkeitsgereu geschrieben. Denn das was in diesem Buch passiet kann schlielich jedem passieren. Vielleicht nich alles ganz soooo extrem. Mehr sage ich dazu nicht, dass ich die Spannung nicht verderbe.
Aber eines sollte man wissen: Es ist traurig! Tragisch, spannend! Und trotzdem GENIAL (vorallem zum heulen)!
Wer gefühlvoll geschriebene Bücher mag ist hier auf jedenfall richtig. Es ist nicht nur traurig also BITTE nicht davon abschrecken lassen! Es lohnt sich!

Da ich selbst es HASSE, dass die Leute immer ales soooo genau in ihre Rezension schreiben, (also, was so alles passiert, wie es ausgeht, einzelheiten, die man noch selbst rausfinden will, da es die spannung vergrößert) ---> was dann oft die Spannung verdirbt, lasse ich das.
Lest das buch selbst, das ist viel schöner und vorallem spannender!

Hoffe, ich konnte helfen.
Lg, Laura

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another Great Hannah Novel 22. März 2011
Von Ezinwanyi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I thought the author's writing style was very descriptive and vivid. Her tone was conversational and engaging.

Night Road introduces us to a young woman named Alexa "Lexi" Baill, who was a product of a heroin addicted mother. She was in and out of various foster homes until a great-aunt named Eva Lange came to claim her. I knew this book would leave me in tears when Lexi met her great-aunt for the first time and said "If you keep me, you won't regret. I swear it." I knew then that this young woman was going to captivate me.

After four days in her new home in Port George, Washington, she makes her first friend Mia Farraday, an outcast, like herself. Mia was the twin sister of Zach Farraday, a popular jock who dragged Mia along in order to try to help her fit in. Soon the three of them become a packaged deal of sorts, going everywhere together, and sleepovers at the Farradays etc.
Jude Farraday became the mother that Alexa always wanted, but never had. Jude Farraday was slightly neurotic when it came to parenting. She insisted on walking her high school kids to their lockers, checking home work, chaperoning all school dances etc.
This book weaves a story about teenagers pushing boundaries, learning responsibilities, making choices and living with the consequences of those choices. It was heart wrenching when I realized that they were going to drive home drunk that fateful night. I knew the consequences would be quite severe and it was.

I loved the easy friendship between Mia and Lexi--the way they accepted each other after experiencing so many rejections in life. I loved how Zach and Lexi fell in love and how Mia ultimately accepted their love. I also loved how hard Zach worked at protecting Mia in all things. This book is about relationships with siblings, parents, and lovers. It reminds me that sometimes in life one bad decision can completely alter the path of your future. Drinking and Driving is always a bad choice, but forgiveness can be a healing comfort.

The author told a wonderful story about acceptance, love, anger, loss and ultimately forgiveness. I was rooting for everyone. I really think Miles Farraday and Eva Lange and the attorney Scott were the unsung heros in this book. I don't want to give it all away but they were the supporting cast that held the primary characters together.

I LOVED THIS BOOK and I wish I could give it more stars

5.0 von 5 Sternen Simply Amazing 23. März 2011
Von Lauren - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
When I first heard of this book a few months back, I just knew I had to read it. The premise sounded amazing, the cover was eye-catching, and Kristin has received plenty of praise. Therefore, when the chance finally came to read Night Road, I jumped right in, devouring it in one long sitting, as Night Road was simply fantastic. Full of likeable and complex characters, star-crossed romance, and tension, this one read had me flipping the pages as fast as humanly possible.

Night Road tells the story of Lexie Baill and the Farraday family. For Jude Farraday, her whole life has been dedicated to her family- specifically her two twins Zach and Mia. However, while Zach is the king of his grade, Mia has always failed to the wayside. Everything changes when Lexie moves to town during the twin's freshman year of high school, though. Scared yet brave, Lexie quickly finds herself part of the Farraday family- another daughter to Jude, a best friend to Mia, and possibly "something more" to Zach. As the years continue, the bond only grows strong...until one horrific accident. Faced with sudden and bone chilling tragedy, everything changes between them all, landing one in jail and the rest in emotional distress. Will they all be able to begin living again? Will they be able to forget and move on before it is too late to do so? Will everything get worse or better in the end? Only time and more pages will tell in this heart wrenching tale of love, hope, and forgiving as well as moving on.

Out of everything in this book, I have to say the characters are most likely my favorite aspect. Complex yet loveable, the main characters found in this one where one is who stories caught me from the very first page and kept me until the very last. Specifically, I loved the bonds that developed as the novel progressed. Ones between family, friends, and boyfriends/girlfriends- all were present and in full string. There was the one between Mia, Zach, and Lexie. Complicated as it was, it was easy to see just how much these three loved and adored each other and how far they would go to make the others happy. There was also the one between families, showing how while love is important, sometimes it cannot save everything. However, the thing I loved most about these characters was that they were real. Lexie, Zach, Mia, Jude, and Miles all made mistakes, but they learned from them and improved upon them- even if it did take a long time to do so. More importantly, when faced with tragedy, they grew strong, though in a way that was believable.

Moving on, another part of Night Road I found enjoyable was the plot and the execution. Full of twists and turns to keep nearly any reader enthralled with the story at hand, I truly never lost interest, not even once. As I was constantly rooting for the characters on their journey's, sitting on the edge of seat, eating up every word, curious to see what road block would pop up next.

Making everything even better was Kristin Hannah's writing. Hannah is one talented storyteller to say the least. She knows how to balance the sad scenes with the funny scenes. More importantly, she knows how to not only bring the characters to life, but also have the reader become dedicated to their stories.

Nearly perfect, reading Kristin Hannah's Night Road is the perfect way to spend a day, in my opinion. Though, word of warning: this is one story you will need a box of tissues for it, as it left me- miss-never-ever-cry-with-about-book-tearing up in some spots.

Lastly, while this book is technically labeled as adult, it still has plenty of great crossover appeal because the majority of the story takes place in Lexie's voice when she is a teen.

Grade: A+

3.0 von 5 Sternen After school special 26. April 2011
Von S. A. W. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a difficult book to categorise. Amazon classifies it as a physiological thriller, but there's little suspense and no spine-tingling action here. The promo blurb proclaimed it to be haunting, which is a bit of an overstatement. Still, Night Road is an engrossing read; I stayed up until 2 a.m. to finish it.
The narrative is told from two different viewpoints, one an orphan teenage girl, the other an upper-class overprotective mother. As a result, the book reads like a cross between chick lit and young adult romance.

The storyline covers a lot of territory, touching on friendship, familial bonds, parenting, underage drinking, premarital sex, justice, recompense, debilitating grief, and forgiveness. Such a plethora of topics, combined with a polished writing style and vivid characters, make Night Road an appealing choice for book clubs.

Unfortunately, it's pretty obvious from the first chapter how the plot will pan out: A friendship is strained by a secret love and then there's a tragic accident. It feels like one of those old after school specials

I had a hard time relating to many of the characters. The Farraday family comes across as shallow silver spooners. The mother in particular is grating. Indulgent and yet controlling of her children, she ends up being vindictive and completely self-centred, traits that are also evident in her children.

A good portion of the book deals with devastation and on-going grief. Kristin Hannah handles the subject matter skilfully and compassionately. However, the fairy tale ending feels completely wrong. It's far too simplistic, which is a real letdown after all the story's emotional complexity.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Blergh. 4. März 2013
Von Dee18 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Lexi Baill arrives in Washington State to live with her aunt, Eva Lange, in 2000. Lexi has been bounced around many foster homes throughout her childhood, and spent some sporadic years living with her drug-addict mother in between. But now Lexi has found a home and stability with her aunt Eva, living in a little yellow trailer in Port George, Washington.

Jude Farraday is mother to twins Zach and Mia - polar opposites and partners in crime. Mia is shy and reclusive, while Zach is popular and outgoing. The two are best friends, and the pride of Jude's life. Jude's doctor husband, Miles, may have a point about her helicopter-parenting and reluctance to cut the apron-strings where the twins are concerned, but Jude's own childhood was a lonely one cut off from her mother after her father's death, and she won't do that to Mia and Zach.

When Mia and Lexi strike up a powerful bond over a shared-love of classic literature, Jude is both relieved and nervous. Lexi brings Mia out of her shell, but Jude is also aware that the Farraday's have a very different, privileged life to that of Lexi and her aunt . . . then there's the fact that Mia has been hurt in the past, when her girlfriends developed crushes on Zach, and abandoned Mia for him.

But Mia and Lexi prove to have a bond that's almost as strong as the one Mia and Zach have - and for three years they are the best of friends . . . until one night changes everything. Zach is left an only-child, Jude is cut adrift and Lexi takes on the burden of blame - and none of them will ever be the same again.

`Night Road' was the 2011 popular fiction title from Kristin Hannah.

This novel is just awful. I hated reading it - all the characters irked me, and some of them made me want to reach into the story and throttle them. But I kept reading because I wanted to know how it would end. . . this book is, literally, like a McDonalds meal that you start feeling guilty about from the first bite but you can't stop yourself from finishing all of it.

We begin in 2000, when Lexi arrives at Port George and strikes up a friendship with Mia and is welcomed into the Farraday bosom by Jude. The first few pages introduce us to Lexi - a young girl who has had an unfair share of heartache in her short life. Between foster homes and witnessing her mother's decline (more than once) her arrival in Port George to live with her unknown Aunt Eva is the first really good thing to happen to Lexi, possibly in her whole life.

Then we're introduced to Jude - who is panicking about her kid's first day of high school. She's worried that Mia won't make friends, and she's concerned about the kind of friends Zach will make . . . yep, Jude is one of those parents. Meeting Jude and the Farraday family after having first met Lexi is rather jarring - even more so when Jude goes over the floor-plan of their massive manor-home (the kids have the entire first floor to themselves - including a gaming room.) Straight away, I was on Lexi's side and more invested in her story and narrative voice. I'll always root for the underdog, and compared to the obnoxious wealth of the Farraday's, Lexi is an extreme-underdog

Then the timeline of this story starts getting a little skewed . . . we jump ahead from 2000 to three years later (right in an odd place too, Hannah snaps forward right before we're about to read Jude, Mia and Lexi start bonding on a girl's outing).

The next little chunk of timeline concerns Lexi and Zach's developing feelings for one another in senior year of high school - something they have to hide from Mia because she's so fragile after having one friend in the past hook-up and break-up with her brother that has apparently scarred her for life. Geez. You know things aren't good when you give characters nicknames in your head - Mia was `needy-psycho' to me. This girl just grated - though I think Hannah meant to portray her as a sweet, innocent soul who needed looking after . . . I just read `whinger'. This section of story also concerns Lexi working round-the-clock at an ice-cream store to try and scrape enough money together to go to a small state school, while Mia and Zach are struggling to decide between USC, Yale, Stanford . . . and of course dominating parent, Jude, is stressing right along with them. When Lexi's Aunt Eva contemplates dipping into her life-savings to help Lexi go to a four-year school, I officially wanted to smack every Farraday character over the head, repeatedly.

Now, a huge let-down of this book is the supposed soul-mate romance of Zach and Lexi - which is meant to cover all manner of ills and explain a lot, later in the story. It doesn't help that Zach is written a little too true-to-life as a teenage boy who says not a whole lot. Seriously - when Hannah pulls the "he's in love with her!" card I was sitting there thinking `Really? How can you tell? The boy does not talk!' Actually, Zach suffers the same fate as his father, Miles, in that neither male character does or says a whole lot. The men in this story feel depleted and sidelined, completely overpowered by the women despite them all going through the same losses and traumas. This is especially bad for Jude's story - I might have warmed to her if she had been a well-rounded woman but she is literally labelled MOTHER and not much else. Her marriage, despite going through the biggest trauma any relationship can experience, is just back-burner to her being a mother (and then a mother who loses a child). She gardens, but that's really her only discernible characteristic. She has her own mother-issues, but they're anaemic and not at all an excuse for her being such a one-dimensional mother-cyborg. I get that this is the point of `Night Road' - here is a woman who sees herself as a mother and nothing else, and what happens when that's (partly) taken away from her? Well, that's boring to me. Jude is the book-equivalent of all those people in my Facebook feed who only post photos and updates about their kids and nothing else - as if they weren't really alive until they had offspring. Blergh.

The second-half of the story jumps ahead to 2010 and concerns everyone's fate after the tragic accident that kills Mia . . . and lays blame entirely (unfairly) at Lexi's feet.

Now, if this had been a Jodi Picoult novel, you can bet this would have been the point that the story started. Because this is the most interesting portion of the whole book - everything else that came before; setting up Mia & Zach's twin-dynamic, Jude's helicopter parenting, the kids growing, Lexi & Zach's romance . . . all that was just boring filler. Part-two of the story, which starts at page 241 of this 385-page book, is where the whole thing should have started from (with some backtracking of story origin). Here is where Hannah pulls out questions of morality, forgiving, guilt and redemption.

I cannot, for the life of me, tell you why I didn't chuck this book away about 20 pages into it. But I think I was looking forward to the skip-ahead portion, when we get to the meat of the morality-story. And, honestly, I did race to read this last half (though it left me utterly unsatisfied). Hannah rushes the ending, and what could actually take up an entire 300+ pages is watered-down with happily-ever-after shenanigans and unbelievable resolutions .

I know that popular-fiction writers get a bad rep. Their books are seen as nothing more substantial than fairy-floss . . . but, by God!, there are nuances within this genre. Someone like Jodi Picoult can have me enraptured in a couple of chapters, and I'll finish one of (admittedly, earlier) books a weeping-wreck, but completely satisfied. Then you read someone like Kristin Hannah who writes despicable characters like Jude (I'm convinced we were meant to like her) and waffles on for 280-pages writing absolute filler rubbish - only to leave the actual meat of the story for the last 100 rushed pages. But, you know, I can only blame myself for this one - I knew it was bad after the first chapter, but I kept punishing myself and reading it. Fool me once.

1.5/5

1.0 von 5 Sternen Night Road a bad road 21. April 2011
Von susannah - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Spoilers.......Spoilers...........Spoilers

This book pretends to be about love, and oddly enough the only ones who actually had pure, unselfish hearts were the "bad" one, the one who never had had a chance, the outcast, and her aunt, also one of the "have nots." The Farradays had everything, including toxic relationships with each other. Jude wasn't just a "helicopter mother," she was obsessive with running and arranging and controlling every SINGLE aspect of her children's lives. I don't know how Mia got out of bed in the morning without three people having to prop her up. I don't know how Jude thought she was going to manipulate people to be there for Mia throughout her adult life, but she would have tried. She went through the roof if her children did or thought anything that wasn't the way she planned it, including whether she would allow Mia and Lexi to be friends, warning Lexi not to hurt Mia, because "another friend had disappointed her and hurt her." GASP! or engineering both Zach and Mia going to the college Mia wanted, even though Zach didn't want to, because Mia "couldn't do it alone" or being furious that Zach and Lexi fell in love, putting a crimp in her plans. There was no way life was gonna hurt or disappoint HER children, by God! There was nothing that Jude did that I didn't find sickening, and enraging.

Then, the fateful night, when Jude's children got in THEIR car, drunk, refusing to call Jude "because they almost got grounded last time," oh the horror!!!...and Zach, who was the designated driver, also was drunk. Lexi was the least drunk, and was wrong to have tried to drive, but she was not the only one at fault in the accident. It was Zach and Mia's car, their car keys, and Zach had promised not to drink. Yes, Mia died after being thrown out of the car, not wearing her seatbelt, but Zach was able to go merrily about his life, fulfilling his dreams, raising his and Lexi's daughter, while Lexi sat in prison, paying with everything she had, every day of her life. Even after she had been crucified by everyone for "murdering" Mia, except for the one person she had in her life, her aunt, she managed to keep a loving heart., and a shred of hope. I really admired Lexi..she was so courageous and strong. Not ONCE was there any Farraday effort whatsoever to atone in any way for their parts in ruining Lexi's life. I can guarantee that had Zach or Mia been driving, and Lexi killed, it would have been unimaginably different in consequence. They wouldn't have been branded "murderer" and become a town pariah. They probably wouldn't have even seen the inside of a jail cell.

The book ends with Lexi out of prison, homeless with no job prospects, Jude opposing even supervised visits with her child, all her dreams destroyed, and then Zach wanders by, nearly out of medical school, with his life intact, and "takes Lexi back." The idea is sickening to me, after what he and his family had done to her, and everything they took from her, that she would just welcome him back with open arms. I thought that this book described the worst of people, that Jude was lightyears from being a "good" mother, that they were fine with ruining other people's lives if theirs were touched in any way, Zach's and Mia's emotionally crippled and self absorbed states, and that Lexi would have been so much better off if she had never known any of them. It also described the love Lexi had with her aunt Eva, who had nothing in the way of an easy life or material things, yet sheltered and loved Lexi, and was willing to sacrifice her life for her. It is too bad there wasn't alot more Aunt Eva and alot less Farraday.
