Pressestimmen

""The Man from Primrose Lane" is 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"

""The Man from Primrose Lane" is one of those novels that will leave you torn: you'll want to read it slowly, in order to savor every scene, but you'll feel compelled to rush through the pages to discover what happens next. With uncommon skill and intelligence, James Renner weaves an intricate story of murder, abduction, and obsessive love. An incredible achievement--beautifully written and dazzlingly plotted, full of well-drawn characters and unexpected twists." --Harry Dolan, author of "Bad Things Happen" and "Very Bad Men"

""The Man from Primrose Lane" is a haunting, wickedly clever book. Part Dennis Lehane and part Murakami, the twist of H. P. Lovecraft mixed in gives it a taste like no other. James Renner starts off his fiction career with a bang." --Jonathan Carroll, author of "The Ghost in Love
""Set in the near future, this ambitious, genre-bending debut novel from investigative reporter Renner ("Amy: My Search for Her Killer") opens with the brutal torture and killing of an elderly hermit, known as "the Man with a Thousand Mittens" (because he wore mittens in the summer), in West Akron, Ohio, and passes through the agonized aftermath of the presumed suicide of the beloved and troubled wife of bestselling true-crime journalist David Neff, who's charged with the hermit's murder. David, obsessed with finding the real killer and saving his four-year-old son from his worst fear, that the boy will grow up to be just like himself, painfully sets about clearing himself of the murder charge. He becomes involved with scientist Victor Tesla, whose time

"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

2.0 von 5 Sternen Just don't!!!!! Pick another book now! 6. September 2016

This was confusing before the time travel crap. Time travel?! Really?! Big egg, spooky one earred communicating cat, guy talking to his future self. I was mad that I devoted time to such a frivolous book. Wouldn't have finished it except it didn't turn weird til 3/4 of the way thru. Believe me! Do not expect to know who is who at the end. Three different girls that all look the same existing across different time spans. Nuf said.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Perfect Score 22. Juli 2016
Von D. Schwent - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Widowed writer David Neff is at rock bottom when his agent drops the tale of The Man From Primrose Lane into his lap. Will a new book to work on bring him out of the funk he's been in since his wife's death or will his obsession kill him?

Before I get down to business, let's all be honest with one another. Most of the books we read are of average or less quality and are just an entertaining way to pass the time. This book is not one of those. This one grabs you by the genitals and infects your thoughts while you aren't reading it.

The Man From Primrose Lane is one hell of a crazy read. The titular character is a local eccentric who was known as The Man with a Thousand Mittens to the cop who found his corpse, complete with fingers in a blender. In life, he was always seen wearing mittens and had a closet full of them when he died? Interested yet? What if I told you the MFPL had a painting of David's dead wife in his basement? Or that he has a notebook about another woman's daily habits that just happens to resemble David's wife?

This is one of those books that I cannot divulge the plot of without ruining it. Suffice to say, it is a cleverly written mind bender. Part detective story, part bat s*** crazy. Your brain might fold in on itself like a black hole before it's finished.

What the hell else can I say without spoiling things? I like how Renner uses David going through the withdrawals for his depression meds as a good way to reveal his back story using flashbacks. I had a feeling who The Man From Primrose Lane was about 30% into the story but I had no idea how complex things really were.

That's about all I'm prepared to reveal at this time. If you like genre-bending, thought provoking reads, you could do a lot worse than this. This is in the top two or three books I've read so far in 2016. Perfect score.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastic! 24. April 2016

The Man from Primrose Lane is a fantastic book. I've wanted to read it for a while after reading The Great Forgetting a few months back and loving it. I'm so glad I was finally able to get my hands on a copy of this book. The author has a captivating style of writing, and this book drew me in right away. I had the twist somewhat figured out before it was revealed, but there were still many surprises waiting for me towards the end of the book. I thought the murder mystery and the science fiction blended well together. I wish Renner had move novels out there because he's a great fiction writer.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Darkness, love, obsession... time 14. Juni 2013
Von Pawel Martin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

If you are about to read "The Man from Primrose Lane" I envy you. You are about to embark on a journey through literary genres that is hard to forget and, if you are anything like me, will move you deeply. It starts as a thriller, albeit one with much depth and disturbing details that make you wonder whether what you reading is merely a work or fiction or something more.

But then it goes in a completely different direction. To say more of the first of many twists will be to spoil all the fun, if you can use the word "fun" when talking about a book that deals with darkness in people, fate, obsessions, serial killers...

Minor spoiler though: it reads like a blend of Ken Grimwood's "Replay", Vonnegut's "Slaughterhouse-Five", and a certain Heinlein's story (revealing which would be a major spoiler)... and/or certain Koontz's novel (spoiler again).

One reservation though. It really should be four and a half star. You see, the premise of the book is so grandiose and the mystery so deep, you are expecting an equally groundbreaking revelation at the end. And you sort of get it... but not in a way you may expect and it is not an answer to one of these big mysteries, but, instead, to a question that never gets asked.

I will say no more. Really, due to its twists and turns, you have to experience it first hand.

Von sandra g. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

A murder mystery with an extra twist or three. I have to admit, I guessed the big twist in advance, but the read was no less enjoyable for it because the execution was really well done, and anything but cliché.

(If you're thinking of reading this and _True Crime Addict_... I'd advise read this one first.)
