Comments Le château

    I’m sorry. I wanted to like this one. I picked this up at BEA about a month ago. I loved Observatory Mansions and I was looking forward to reading this. I think I had a conversation that went something like this with Karen…Me: “I don’t really get it”Karen: “It’s a book for kids, how can you not get it?”Me: “I didn’t realize that.”Karen: “How did you not know that?”Me: “I dunno.”I didn’t read the back of the book when I grabbed it off of the Overlook counter. I did [...]

    A quirky and dark read. It is so refreshing to read a story which is utterly unpredictable and has its own kind of logic. Too often stories for young adults do not challenge the reader, but this is different. It captures a fairytale feel, while being unique and enchanting, as well as truly gothic. For young readers, for old readers, it is a great story and one I would whole-heartedly recommend.It is still hard to describe - but if you like Howl's Moving Castle, Lemony Snicket or tales of a sligh [...]

  • Patrizia

    Mai fidarsi degli oggetti, soprattutto quando nascondono il segreto di una vita dimenticata, di cui conservano solo un nome ripetuto ossessivamente.Un libro geniale, che racconta un mondo vittoriano fatto di oggetti abbandonati, rotti, logori, accumulati nel corso di decenni, al punto da formare un paesaggio instabile di colline in cui è facile sprofondare. Su tutto domina Heap House, uno stravagante, enorme edificio, abitato dagli Iremonger di sopra - una famiglia che della spazzatura ha fatto [...]

  • Natalie Hamilton

    Heap House is Edward Carey’s first foray into young adult fiction. The author of two of the most original adult novels in recent years—Observatory Mansions and Alva and Irva—Carey brings his quirky and emotionally resonant style to Book One in the Iremonger trilogy. For generations, the Iremonger family has been responsible for “the Heaps,” a tremendous sea of trash outside an alternate-universe London with Dickensian echoes. The story has an Upstairs/Downstairs structure that is maste [...]

  • Natasha Ngan

    An utterly captivating story that is weird, highly imaginative, and unlike anything you will have read before. I fell in love straight away with the strange, gothic world Carey has created. Objects that speak? A house full of secrets? Maps?! Yes please! And his hero and heroine are wonderful, vivid characters you'll be rooting for all the way. For fans of Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Events, Neil Gaiman's Coraline, and Laika's stop-motion films (which I sincerely hope Heap House will j [...]

    TRE E MEZZOI segreti di Heap House è un libro stravagante non c'è che dire. E' un impatto con il diverso e il fuori dal comune. Un romanzo diverso che lascia una nota di letteratura inglese nel cuore!Potevo mettere cinque stelline o ne potevo mettere tre, perché è un libro che può piacere e non piacere, sono letture oltre le regole, letture diverse e che escono dalle rotaie così velocemente da farti perdere il senno, un pò come la "Miniaturista".La caricatura dei personaggi è esemplare, [...]

    Heap House was unexpectedly amazing & the best book I've read so far in 2014. I've never heard of a story like it and the writing style is great. Like A Series of Unfortunate Events sprinkled with Dickens. Can't wait to read the second book!

  • Alberto

    Ugh! tengo un conflicto con éste libro. Quería que me gustara mucho, quería que fuera uno de mis favoritos, pero no fue así. Lo que me gustó:-La trama del libro esta súper original, es uno de los libros más originales que he leído.-Me gustó que el autor incluyera un mapa de la Heap House, se te hace más fácil visualizar la casa-Los personajes son únicos y muy peculiares.-Me gustó el detalle de los birth objects y la historia que hay detrás de ellos.-Me recordó al estilo de Tim Bur [...]

  • Eugene

    Remarkable book. Wildly, effervescently imaginative and brilliantly written. Saw some negative reviews on this site and wondered if these people read the same book. Oh, and beautifully illustrated and put together. A tour de force really

  • Sarah

    Every child born to the Iremonger family is given a birth object that they must carry with them their entire lives, for some this isn't a problem - Clod can easily fit a bath plug in his pocket - but for others it makes life difficult, you can't exactly carry around a mantelpiece so Clod's grandmother has lived her whole life stuck in one room. Nobody knows what would happen if they lost their birth object but they know it won't be good and they get the chance to see why first hand when one of C [...]

  • Melissa Chung

    This book was unlike any book I have ever read. It was a fun entertaining read. Slow to get into, but once I understood the history of the people and Heap House in general it grew on me.This book is narrated in two POV's, one being Clod Iremonger and the other being Lucy Pennant. Now lets see if I can explain the book.Clod Iremonger lives in a large patchwork mansion called the Heap House. Heap being garbage, junk, trash, lost things, broken things, crumbling things, forgotten things. Within thi [...]

  • Sarah Churchill

    I struggled to get my head around it to begin with, got the characters muddled up and had no idea what was going on. The language also took a bit of getting used to as it's been a while since I read anything quite so Dickensian. Once I overcame those hurdles, though, I loved it!Dark, gothic and very Tim Burton-esque, the creepiness of the story combined with the language made me forget that it's meant to be a middlegrade book. In fact I counted a few swear words in there too (p*ss, s**t, b**ch) [...]

  • cagedpopmachine

    Heap House captures a spooky fantastical Victorian England where things are sometimes people that have turned into things. Anyone who liked Harry Potter should enjoy this book. It's due out in October of 2014. Perfect timing for the atmosphere of the book. It is a middle-grade book but intriguing and well written enough for all readers middle grades and above. parents may want to know that there is one use of a moderate swear word by a villain-like character.

    For some time, I've pondered whether it is better to tell a bad story well, or a good story poorly. Usually I come down on the side of the former, and Heap House slightly reinforces this position by being the latter.This book on display at the library caught my eye for one reason only: the author's name, from across the room, looked like 'Edward Gorey.' Upon closer inspection, I saw my error, but discovered it was a story clearly in the vein of Gorey's comics, blending his love of animated inani [...]

  • Silvia

    La trama di questo primo volume mi ha affascinata sin dal primo momento, così come la copertina e la scritta Illustrazioni dell'autore. Ma che strana storia ha inventato Carey?Clod, vero nome di battesimo Clodius Iremonger, è nato e cresciuto a Heap House, una casa immensa in cui vive da tempo tutta la famiglia Iremonger. Ha sedici anni, è in attesa dei pantaloni lunghi - dati agli uomini una volta diventati adulti - e sa di essere predestinato a Pinalippy Iremonger, una ragazza brutta e poco [...]

    A brilliantly enjoyable novel with a hilarious bunch of characters!- This is the first book in the Iremonger series, I had not heard of it until I went to the Hot Key Books blogger brunch a couple of weeks ago where it was raved about. I was generously given a copy on the day and couldn't wait to get it home to read!- We follow the main protagonist Clod Iremonger, he lives with his family in the massive heaps of rubbish that surround London. The Iremonger family reside over the heaps and have ev [...]

  • Anastasia Antonova

    Не такая плохая книга, как я думала о ней сначала. На удивление понравилась. Слог ну оочень приятный, читать было одно удовольствие. События не растянуты, всего в меру. Атмосферность тоже нужно отметить. Она скорее не мрачная, а мистическая. Здесь достаточно хорошо прописан [...]

  • Robin Stevens

    This is a very special book. It's this generation's Gormenghast - but, just like Gormenghast, it's comparison-defying, utterly strange and completely unique. It confused me and amazed me, and I loved it.

  • Bek

    Eldritch, quirky, slow. Lemony Snicket + Edward Gorey minus the humour of both.

  • Anmiryam

    Haunting and atmospheric -- a love child born of Dickens (Bleak House and Our Mutual Friend are both clear touchstones for Edward Carey), Edward Gorey, Neil Gaiman and E. Nesbit. Set in a an alternate Victorian London in a house amalgamated from the detritus the Iremonger family has sourced from the heaps of discarded trash emerging from the growing city, this first installment in a trilogy is a strange adventure tale that is slow to start but always rich in language and imagination. Of course, [...]

    Description: Chosen by Luminaries author Eleanor Catton as her Guardian Book of the Year, Heap House is the gorgeously illustrated story of the Iremonger clan and their gothic, eccentric world.Young Clod is an Iremonger. He lives in at Heap House, his family’s mansion at the center of the Heaps, a vast sea of lost and discarded items whose ever-shifting masses have been known to swallow people alive. The Iremongers are an odd old family, each the owner of a Birth Object they must keep with the [...]

  • Muneera

    I don't know how I feel. Honestly, I'm lost. This is a very weird, creepy and morbid book in the best way, it was even funny at times! The illustrations at the beginning of each chapter were a highlight I looked forward to and helped me imagine everything that's happening and relate to the characters more. The characters and the house were like a puzzle that you wanted to decipher as quickly as possible, you always wanted to know more. I also loved how the actual house was a very big subject, we [...]

  • Lorcan

    This is an interesting book.At first I was not sure. It was too Weird. Normally, I would say that is a good thing, however, this made the book seem slow. And then, it hits you. You come to terms with objects shouting out names and the world being piles of unwanted objects. You start to get a thirst for wanting to find out 'What on earth is going on?'The book is full of intrigue, fabulous quirky characters, and wonderful moments of adventure. Stick with it and just wait till you meet the gatherin [...]

  • GameBoy

The Iremongers own the London heaps and are very rich they send servants to work in the heaps and also the heap house. But when Lucy Pennent comes to work in the heap house, everything changes

  • Lindsey Lane

    Are you anxiously awaiting Neil Gaiman's next book? Have you re-read the fairy tales or Charles Dickens one too many times? Are you longing Lemony Snicket? Then pick up Edward Carey's HEAP HOUSE. It is genius and funny and will fill every reading void you didn't know you had. Promise. Plus, if you go to Edward Carey's site, you will get a birth object. And that's just cool.

  • Karen Rye

    This is a brilliant, dark and twisted story. A great opening to what promises to be a captivating series that I will watch out for eagerly. Beautifully crafted in terms of both prose and of Hot Key's wonderful presentation. Great thrill of a read.
