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

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...

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

HASH(0x9640f7d4) 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

HASH(0x9640f924) 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+

HASH(0x9640fc60) 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.

Von Jillian Blume - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I have rarely read a novel with a main character that made me as angry as Night Road. While the author may have thought she was writing a heartfelt story about a family surviving a terrible tragedy and learning to live with it, what she really put before the reader was a narcissistic, self-indulgent, dangerous mother character who is particularly insidious because the novel bears no actual awareness of what this woman really is.

From the beginning, the mother, Jude, deals with her children as extensions of herself. They provide her identity and self-image, but dare they try to step out of her shadow to become their own person. While her grief and even her reaction at the hospital after the accident happens is understandable, that's where my compassion for her ends. She abandons her son at the one time in his life when he most needs her support and compassion. I would say she abandons her husband, but his continued insistence on letting her get away with ruining the family just made me see red. Worst of all, she sets out to ruin the life of the young woman who had to drive only because Jude's own son, though the designated driver, was blind drunk. He practically forced Lexi to drink two beers, while she demanded that he not get behind the wheel. This girl had an accident because Jude's own children were completely wasted and they were physically goofing around in the car, not because her alcohol level was one hundredth of a degree over the legal limit. In fact, Jude's own son was determined to get behind the wheel because of what he knew would be his mother's reaction after she lied to them before about being able to call for a ride without consequences.

But what made me angriest of all was what Jude set out to do to her grandchild. The kind of narcissism required to warp the mind of a six year old, to make her feel unloved and unlovable, is basically criminal.

This book made me angrier than another book I can remember. Even worse is the fairytale ending that has no depth of reality behind it, that's way too Hollywood. Don't believe it. Don't believe its message because the author has no idea what she has written.

HASH(0x9640ffe4) von 5 Sternen A three-tissue book 25. März 2011
Von joyful - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
A peculiar thing happened after I finished Night Road by Kristin Hannah - I was so absorbed that somehow my paper bookmark traveled through four layers of clothing and ended up on my back, next to my skin. I have no idea how it got there but I think that should be some sort of indication of a book's readability - forget stars, thumbs up/down - where in the world is my bookmark? (BTW, I have it on good authority a similar thing happened to the famous critic for the New York Review of Books, Well-Read McReputable, upon reading Finnegan's Wake for the first time.)

I'm not proud to admit it, I bawled. A blubbering mess. Night Road pushed the right buttons - motherhood, loss, friendship, first love. This is thoroughly women's fiction, in that the narratives alternate between Lexi, a teenage foster child, and Jude, the well-off mother to Lexi's friends, Mia and Zach. Although the events that unfold involve and affect male characters, Zach and Jude's husband, Miles, we never get their perspectives. We see everything from the women's point of view, which often times made the male characters seem like bystanders in their own tragedies. Their presence was insubstantial. The main protagonists, Lexi and Jude, provide two opposite, but sympathetic points of view in a very difficult and painful situation. Hannah realistically explores Lexi's and Jude's grief and guilt and their sense of isolation.

Since the plot had some predictable elements, I am ambivalent about the ending. It wrapped up a little too neatly for me as though Hannah dared not go any darker and pulled back to deliver a happy ending. I would have preferred more insight into Lexi's journey after the tragedy. It would not have been pretty, but I think it would have given Night Road more depth. As it is, I envision Night Road as a perfect Lifetime movie tearjerker.

All in all - Night Road by Kristin Hannah was a three-tissue book and my bookmark ended up wedged under my tank top - read into that what you will.
