en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – 23 Feb 2017
It looked like any other carnival, but of course it wasn't. It had its own little backstreets, its alleyways of hanging bulbs and ghost trains and Punch and Judy stands .And at the end of one he saw the Hall of Mirrors. There were looping strings of carnival lights leading towards it, and a large sign in mirrored glass reading 'Burleigh's Amazing Hall of Mirrors' and the sign reflected the lights in all sorts of magically distorted ways. To Andy and his parents, it looks like any other carnival: creaking ghost train, rusty rollercoaster and circus performers. But of course it isn't.Drawn to the hall of mirrors, Andy enters and is hypnotised by the many selves staring back at him. Sometime later, one of those selves walks out rejoins his parents - leaving Andy trapped inside the glass, snatched from the tensions of his suburban home and transported to a world where the laws of gravity are meaningless and time performs acrobatic tricks.And now an identical stranger inhabits Andy's life, unsettling his mother with a curious blankness, as mysterious events start unfolding in their Irish coastal town.

Recenzii

Written in beautifully poetic prose
Has an aching, plaintive melancholy
His cinematic sensibility yields prose of the most bewitching kind
One of Ireland's most talented artists
Jordan has a light touch and a clear eye on matters of the heart
His dialogue and characterisation shine
His belief in language is absolute, as is his mastery of it
You can never know where you are going with Neil Jordan . Extraordinary
The cinematic potential for that longed-for movie is striking
