This is one of the greatest dystopias i've ever seen. Very vivid picture of dark, senseless, gloomy and sometimes disgusting future. Described society is very realistic, as Pille developed many actual trends and tendencies. Much of Crepuscule Ville is probable, i may say. Subscribers instead of citizens, true hyperdemocracy, Service of defense against yourself (not the best translation, but i didn't find better) - i was admired by these! Plus, a plenty of nice felicitous phrases. Lively and ...more

Autant le dire tout de suite : j'avais adoré les deux premiers romans de Lolita Pille, "Hell" et "Bubble Gum" qui faisaient preuve d'un réalisme et d'un cynisme à toute épreuve. Alors, lorsque je suis tombé par hasard sur "Crépuscule Ville", j'ai fait fi de mon ressentiment pour le genre SF et ai fait confiance au seul nom de l'auteur ... J'aurais dû passer mon chemin ce jour-là ! La lecture de ce livre a été pour moi plus que laborieuse. Non pas que le roman soit mal écrit, loin de là ...more

Peut-être que Pille a voulu changer un peu et faire de la science-fiction mais là je dis non! Qu'elle retourne à ses histoire de filles pourries gâtées car je n'ai pas du tout aimé ce livre beaucoup trop lent à mon goût. J'ai hésité à l'abandonner à la moitié mais j'ai quand même réussis à le finir. En fait, non seulement l'histoire est lente, mais en plus elle est complexe. Je n'ai pas compris grand chose, j'avais plutôt l'impression que rien ne collait ensemble. Déçue, j'attend q

Beaucoup trop d'informations et de détails inutiles. L'histoire se perd dans des digressions immenses, j'ai plutôt eu l'impression que l'auteur "s'écoutait" écrire plutôt que de se concentrer sur le sens et le déroulement de l'histoire. Le personnage principal est plutôt antipathique et pas tellement stimulant.
Je n'ai pas pu terminer ma lecture (et c'est pourtant très rare), je n'ai vraiment pas apprécié.

The beginning was good with a critic of economic liberalism,consumerism and human shallowness but instead of a 1984 like storyline (which would have been wiser regarding the overall quality of the book) the author chose to write a crime solving plot which won't be solved and is full of clichés so it's a void book which would has been great if the book had been about void
