Pressestimmen

A thriller and a detective story, plus science fiction and romance with a little near-future dystopia thrown in…A superbly crazy and imaginative story. (Associated Press)

Well written…Ambitious and innovative…If you like your fiction tidy and predictable, look elsewhere. (The Washington Post)

Fascinating and unpredictable, with shades of Stephen King and HP Lovecraft as well as Douglas Adams, [The Man from Primrose Lane] never loses touch with the human story of loss, guilt and fate that is at its core. (Laura Wilson, The Guardian (UK))

The Man from Primrose Lane barrels along, fueled by Renner's addictive storytelling….It's quite the interesting ride. (The Denver Post)

A well-told story filled with darkness, horror, humor, and surprising tenderness. And that's just the first part. There is a moment in this novel when the story moves in a way so unexpected I actually had to put it down and catch my breath. Go ahead, see what I mean. I'll wait here for you. (Charles Yu, author of How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe)

Features superbly drawn characters and escalates into a genre-bending narrative (noir, sci-fi, and more) of thrills and twists. A great choice for readers who enjoyed Tana French's In the Woods or any work by Philip K. Dick. (Library Journal)

Brilliantly intricate… [with] a fantastic finish [and] compelling, interesting characters… I couldn't put The Man From Primrose Lane down. (SF Signal)

Kurzbeschreibung

Rewind:
Once upon a time in Ohio there lived an elderly recluse, 'the man from Primrose Lane'. He had no friends or family. He wore mittens all year round. And one summers day, he was murdered.

Fast-Forward:
Bestselling author David Neff is a broken man, lonely, desolate and lost ever since his wife's suicide. But something about the man from Primrose Lane grabs his attention and he decides to investigate the mystery - only to be dragged back into a world he thought he had left behind forever.

Replay:
As David gets closer to uncovering the true identity of the man from Primrose Lane, he begins to understand the terrible power of his own obsessions and how they may be connected to the deaths of both the hermit and his beloved wife.

5.0 von 5 Sternen really good 8. März 2012
Von Marcie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The Man From Primrose Lane by James Renner starts off with the gruesome murder of a recluse that had the odd habit of always wearing mittens. For years after the murder, David Neff, author of a best selling true-crime book, is asked to look into the man from Primrose Lane's mysterious death. Neff agrees and then the mystery begins to unfold. Neff is aghast to find that his deceased wife is somehow mixed up in the murder. Furthermore the clues are leading back to the horrific case he thought was closed years ago. Neff is driven by obsession, determination and compulsion to put all the pieces together before it's too late.
The Man From Primrose Lane is a hauntingly good read. The story consists of a few disturbing details, such as the crimes of pedophiles and murderers, that are at times hard to read but it also makes the story line more dramatic. Renner doesn't go into too much detail concerning these crimes but enough to make your skin crawl. The story is told through flashbacks and real time. This method adds to building suspense in the novel.
This is definitely one of the more interesting books I've read in some time. The ending wasn't at all as I expected. It has a twist that will leave your mind whirling. Renner will leave you speculating and gauging not only how the book would end but also as to who the real criminal in this book is. The Man From Primrose Lane is more for older audiences.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointing.. 31. Mai 2012
Von perook - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Having read a very glowing review of this book in the magazine section of our newspaper, I was keen to buy it and get reading. A promising start, perhaps, but oh what a jumble the layout was - a pack of cards flung into the air and allowed to fall and then gathered at random is an analogy of the sequencing of this book. Just when I thought I had a feel for where the story was at, off it would go on a different track - it was pure tedium looking back to see what I had missed and never finding out what it meant. None of the characters were developed to the point where I felt involved with them and I was tempted to abandon the book several times. However I continued till the end through the ridiculous time travel nonsense that put the lid on the coffin for me. All in all. very disappointing, a real let-down.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Could have been a great book, but it's not!!!! 18. Juni 2012
Von Gail Swartzell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I love strange and quirky book, Shutter Island is superb example. This book started going in that direction and then veered off into the unknown and not in a good way. All the elements were there for a great story but what the heck is with the time travel and strange aliens? i would need a Cliff Notes to figure out what was going on.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Unusual twist... 1. Januar 2013

It was an interesting book with an unusual twist that went just a little overboard. I liked it quite a bit, but didn't love it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen (4.5 stars) "Stories like this make ghosts out of the living." 28. Februar 2012
Von Luan Gaines - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Renner's novel begins with murder in Akron, Ohio, the inexplicable and brutal death of the "Man from Primrose Lane" (a/k/a the "Man with a Thousand Mittens"), a reclusive whose identity proves impossible to ascertain, a hint that Renner's tale is, in fact, as intricate as a medieval maze, where true evil collides with its opposite force and a writer's obsession draws him into a cycle of memory and experience far beyond his imagination. When his publisher suggests David Neff write about the mysterious "Man from Primrose Lane", the widower is reluctant, mired in despair since his wife's suicide, medicated for PTSD since his true crime bestseller, The Serial Killer's Protégé, and dedicated to raising his four-year-old son, Tanner. Renner is in the business of seduction. As surely as Neff is helpless to resist rummaging in a box of material about convicted serial killer Ronil Brune, Renner draws the curious reader into a complex tale of murder, obsession and possibility, an emotional minefield where monsters coexist with a scientific study of the hibernation cycle of the cicada, innocent young girls are targeted for kidnapping and the identity of a recluse holds the key to it all.

Renner's chapters are as precisely orchestrated as a card sharp dealing hope to a gambler, each hand ratcheting up the tension, the stakes too high to lose, from the history of the enigmatic "Man from Primrose Lane" to David's love for the secretive, moody Elizabeth, from his fascination with Brune's crimes to nearly-crippling fragments of recurring memories. As Elizabeth reluctantly reveals her past to a fervent soon-to-be-husband- her twin was kidnapped at ten, an event that shadows her life- the introduction of pivotal characters underscores an unfolding drama that breeches the boundaries of the ordinary. Buffeted by doubt and curiosity, David finds a new dimension post-Elizabeth, driven to learn the truth and to protect his young son. Grim tableaux of crime are regularly etched in the public consciousness, but this novel jumps the constraints of predictability in the systematic kidnapping/killing of red-haired ten-year-old girls, good and evil in mortal in a tale of murder, abduction and obsessive love. Luan Gaines/2012.
