Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

"Seanan McGuire doesn't write stories, she gifts us with Myth -- new Myths for a layered America that guide us off the twilight roads and lends us a pretty little dead girl to show us the way home."—Tanya Huff

"McGuire is a writer to be reckoned with, landing stone-cold emotional blows in quick succession while simultaneously stringing laugh-out-loud moments alongside lush descriptions, knife-sharp badinage and quickfire action sequences.” —Strange Horizons

"McGuire applies a hard-boiled mentality and a keen appreciation for mythology to a blend of politics, magic, and romance.”—Publishers Weekly

 

Kurzbeschreibung

Rose Marshall died in 1952 in Buckley Township, Michigan, run off the road by a man named Bobby Cross—a man who had sold his soul to live forever, and intended to use her death to pay the price of his immortality. Trouble was, he didn’t ask Rose what she thought of the idea.



It’s been more than sixty years since that night, and she’s still sixteen, and she’s still running.



They have names for her all over the country: the Girl in the Diner. The Phantom Prom Date. The Girl in the Green Silk Gown. Mostly she just goes by “Rose,” a hitchhiking ghost girl with her thumb out and her eyes fixed on the horizon, trying to outrace a man who never sleeps, never stops, and never gives up on the idea of claiming what’s his. She’s the angel of the overpass, she’s the darling of the truck stops, and she’s going to figure out a way to win her freedom. After all, it’s not like it can kill her.



You can’t kill what’s already dead.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I enjoyed every minute I spent reading this book! 8. Mai 2014
Von Nikkisicks - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book follows the afterlife and coming of age of the ghost we have all heard of at slumber parties and campfires, the hitch hiking girl who disappears to leave only a jacket behind. I love ghost stories, so the premise pulled me in, but then I stayed for the world building, the characters, and the prose. It was a darkly beautiful book. The formatting feels like a short story collection at times, but the way it ties together makes for a satisfactory and unique approach.
The dark circles under my eyes today are a testament to my unwillingness to put it down, and all I could think about all day at work was getting back home to finish reading.

I've had a few big hits and a few misses with this author before, but this is definitely one of my favorites. It is different than anything of hers that I have read, as far as plot, but the cynical, snarky protagonist was similar to one I had loved before. Funny, smart, heartbreaking, and fresh.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another Winner From Seanan McGruire 7. Mai 2014
Von Books31 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Sparrow Hill Road was absolutely fascinating.

One of the most ubiquitous shared experiences, that can be seen not just throughout the country but across the world, is the telling and reshaping of ghost stories.

Seanan McGuire takes this premise of the traditional campfire ghost story and turns it into a full novel. But she does it in a very unique way. The story reads as a hodgepodge of different stories throughout the ghost Rose Marshall death, showing her obligations, her adventures, her sorrows, and really developing a character that would normally be left to the shadows of a story. Further, McGuire does all of this in a nonlinear fashion. While jumping between the decades may seem off and disjointed, it is fitting for the character and tone of the book. Further, while the story is being told in disjointed snippets the development is not, throughout each story readers will get a better sense of Rose and who she really is.

As usual McGuire’s talent for writing comical situations and strong protagonists shines through in this book. Readers will not be disappointed with Rose, and now that she has been introduced I look forward to hearing more from her in McGuire’s InCryptid series. All in all a fun read.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointing new direction from McGuire 20. Mai 2014
Von Steph @ Xpressions - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
For context, YES, I am a fan of Seanan McGuire's other series. I very much enjoy the October Daye books, and have found the Incryptid series to be a fun change of pace. Also, I read the Kindle version of this book.

That said, this new direction is lacking. It doesn't have McGuire's hallmarks of quality writing or thoughtful storytelling.

Other reviewers have commented that it "jumps around" too much. I agree, but would add that it isn't the jumping around that is distracting as much as the "in media res" feel of the whole book. She casually drops terms like "ambulomancer" and "trainspotters" that aren't explained in the context of the story, yet she continues to use them like they're common language.

There is apparently a lexicon (a Price Family Field Guide - is this supposed to be a cross over from Incryptid???) at the end of the book - perhaps there should have been footnotes or some other marker to tell the reader that help was a mere page flip away. For goodness sakes, the Kindle edition could at least have had hyperlinks to the definitions!

The story itself is worthy of a novella at most (and, well-edited, would probably have made a fine short story), but she draaaaaags it out into a book length creation, filled with odd little sidebar jaunts that don't really tell us much about the characters, but fill pages to satisfy the publisher.

The one most interesting encounter in the book (when Rose meets a woman who wants to exorcise her) is an example of a "sidebar" - it doesn't teach us much about Rose, and doesn't really lead anywhere. Great description - and a segment of the book that feels more like McGuire's style and ability than any other portion of the book - but no real importance in the story.

I have sloughed through this thing. Normally, I can read through a McGuire novel in three to five nights, easy, because I can't put the darned thing down. Two weeks later, and it was a chore to pick this one up. So disappointing.

I really hope she abandons this "new" idea and goes back to her old self, even if it is in a new series. This one, this style, just doesn't cut it and doesn't fit the McGuire canon of good reads.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Tough book to get through. 15. Mai 2014
Von S. Giden - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I had to force myself to finish Sparrow Hill Road. I kept putting it down after a few chapters and wasn't in a rush to go back to reading it. I just never connected with Rose and didn't really care what was happening to her.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wow. Just wow! 13. Mai 2014
Von Dot334 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I have followed this author for some time. the story is a winding lament of a woman who is more than just a ghost or urban legend. The chapters go between time periods and it all ties together. What I enjoyed most was that each chapter was its own story but woven into the book as a whole.

Best thing I've read in some time.

It is now on my re-read shelf. There is only one other book on that shelf. That is how much I loved it.
