内容紹介

Seven stories of passion and love separated by centuries but mysteriously intertwined--this is a tale of horror and beauty, tenderness and sacrifice.
An archaeologist who unearths a mysterious artifact, an airman who finds himself far from home, a painter, a ghost, a vampire, and a Viking: the seven stories in this compelling novel all take place on the remote Scandinavian island of Blessed where a curiously powerful plant that resembles a dragon grows. What binds these stories together? What secrets lurk beneath the surface of this idyllic countryside? And what might be powerful enough to break the cycle of midwinterblood? From award-winning author Marcus Sedgwick comes a book about passion and preservation and ultimately an exploration of the bounds of love.

形式: ペーパーバック
2073年、ジャーナリストのEricは謎の花の正体を探るために、よそ者がほとんど訪れないBlessed島に到着する。
島の美しさと人々の親切に包まれて過ごすうちに、Ericは自分が何のために訪問したのかを忘れてしまう。そこで出会った若い女性Merleは彼に何かを伝えようとするが、頭がもやに包まれたようで何も考えられない。

Ericが知らなかったのは、美しいが不気味な雰囲気が漂うこの島で、10世紀前にある血みどろの儀式が行われたということだ。そのときに引き裂かれた二つの魂は、1000年間姿かたちを変えて何度も出会うことになる。

こう説明すると、「Cloud Atlasみたい」と思う人がいるかもしれない。たしかに構造はよく似ている。2073年から過去に向かって7つの異なる物語が語られ、それぞれに共通する名前の二人が登場する。ネタバレになるのでこれ以上は話さないが、それぞれに異なる愛と悲劇の物語で、最後にすべての物語が繋がる。

今年(2014年)にプリンツ賞を受賞した作品だが、残念ながら私には期待はずれだった。アイディアは良いのだが、それがうまく語られているとは思えないのだ。それぞれの物語があまりにも表層的で、これから小説を書くための覚書のように感じたのだ。愛を語るのであれば、生まれてくる意味についても、人格につ

5つ星のうち 3.0 A book for lovers of plot rather than character 2014/1/29
投稿者 Ashlyn Jane - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
While I found 'Midwinterblood' to be easy to read and difficult to put down, it left me feeling strangely hollow. The plot gallops backwards through the centuries at a pace following the many lives of Eric and Merle, however the links between these lives are fragile and largely symbolic. Breaking the book into so many parts does not allow the reader to become particularly attached to any of the characters, just as one begins to know a character the plot is yanked back into a different life. The two central characters and their relationships to one another are so vastly different in each of these lives that they would be unrecognisable if not for the recurring motifs of their names, the hare and the words 'so it is'. While these motifs are used skilfully, they do not make up for the fact that we know Eric and Merle for such a short time in each of their incarnations that we cannot recognise any ever-present character trait that identifies them with their past or future selves.

Moreover, the love story that should tie it all together has no origin. There was no explanation of how they fell in love or what it was that they loved about each other; they simply were in love and this was taken for granted. This made the characters very difficult to relate to and made the story feel as though it was a flower simply appearing from nowhere and lacking roots or even a stem. This was possibly also due to the story almost always picking up near to the end of one of their lives, so that we saw many times how Eric and Merle were separated, but never understood how they came to be so connected.

Overall, while the writing is beautiful and the plot absorbing the characters and relationships which should anchor the story leave much to be desired.

5つ星のうち 3.0 Stark and evocative 2014/2/3
投稿者 Ellen Jackson - (Amazon.com)

Atmospheric, dreamlike and haunting. The backwards-in-time structure worked effectively to enhance the mystery.

But I never really connected with the characters who seem like archetypes. Merle didn’t seem like a real human being to me. The three main characters circle endlessly in various configurations throughout the seven vignettes–but I never felt I knew who any of them were on a deeper level. The secondary characters, especially various sets of parents and other family members, are muted and shadowy:

“Tor’s questions about his parents come back to him, and he realizes that it’s been many years since he thought about them. Almost as if they were dead. And though they’re not dead, they may as well be. He hasn’t seen them or spoken to them in years...”

What? Seems a little strange to me. And there’s no further explanation forthcoming.

I particularly didn’t understand “The Archaeologist” and how it fit with the others. Again, what happened to Eric’s father? Who is Edward, the narrator, in relationship to the greater story?

I struggle with whether to give this book three or four stars. The characters seem flat, the plot is a bit clunky, and the set up is farfetched at times–but as a puzzle and fairy tale, it works. Lucid and well-written, but I didn't resonate with it emotionally.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Midwinterblood by Marcus Sedwick 2015/1/24
投稿者 Phyllis Snook - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
Imagination of great depth! An author who stands on his own, is a writer that holds creativity close to his heart. Though it is not just the heart that feeds creativity but the soul!

You can dream of a story, see the words dancing in your head, but alas can you put them down on paper?

Can you make others interested in the characters that you have created? Can you shape them from a world that does not exist other than for you? Marcus Sedwick has done that in this wonderful novel!

I have never been one to spoil a novel for a reader. Therefore, all I cay tell anyone is that if you enjoy reading about "past lives" or anything in that realm, you will love this book.

Actually, Mr. Sedwick does not consider this book about past lives, though some of you might if you read it.

That being said, I implore you to read the book and come to your own conclusions.

I loved it very much and look forward to reading more from this imaginative author!
5つ星のうち 4.0 Dark. Creepy. Awesome! 2014/5/8
投稿者 Maria @ Bookchilla - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
Seven stories. Seven lifetimes. How can love, any love, survive through that?

Midwinterblood reminds me of Cloud Atlas (in terms of the connecting stories), When the Sea is Rising Red and The Brides of Rollrock Island (because of the richness in tales of love lost, found, and lost again).

Dark. Creepy. Awesome!

The stories are mesmerizing, marvelous in the way that they can stand alone as a short story. I remember I loved most of them, whether its sad, romantic, gory or tragic. Marcus Sedgwick did not stick to the conventional plots, for his were far out! The imagination involved, the emotions stirred - those elements made Midwinterblood really worked for me.

I think I was on the fourth story when I caught up on the connection. I say, that could not be it, but then, why not? And it was unbelievably unusual that I want to revel in the uniqueness of it. And let me not forget the horror, and gore. Wee!

How come the most saddest people have the most beautiful of histories? What could've gone wrong? If there is another chance, will they be strong enough to fight for that same love, over and over again?

Midwinterblood is an acquired taste, for I think not many readers will be inclined to claim it as a favorite. But I hope you do. It will be a shame to be deterred by the tragedy alone. ;)
5つ星のうち 3.0 Could have been better... 2014/7/16
投稿者 jess jewels - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
Considering that this novel won a major prize, I was a bit surprised at how poorly edited it is. There are verb tense changes throughout the book, and there seems to be no logical or literary reason for this. It just changes tense in the middle of a chapter or passage. That editor should be fired immediately! I can't even read the book without a pen in hand; I have to do the editing myself as I go along.

In addition, I agree with the previous reviewer who said that, while the language and style (minus the editing mistakes) is quite lovely and dreamlike, the stories themselves are sparse, underdeveloped. Seems like the author didn't have to work too hard to get his next book published, so he didn't. It has potential, but it seems like a rough draft.
