Un moderno "Frankestein". Nella piccola cittadina di Felling è arrivato un ragazzo nuovo: Stephen Rose. Ha una pelle lucida, uno sguardo ossessivo, ipnotico, e un odore nauseante. Non ha genitori. Non ha amici. Sul suo conto girano molte voci e pettegolezzi, ma una cosa è certa: c'è qualcosa di magico nelle strane creature che Stephen modella con la creta. I due chierichetti Davie e Geordie dovrebbero stargli alla larga? Oppure diventare suoi amici? Forse Stephen potrebbe essere un alleato nell'aspra lotta contro quel mostro di Mouldy e la sua banda... Età di lettura: da 10 anni.

The experience of reading Clay is like being in a dream. There are recognisable objects and familiar places, but everything is twisted round, suffused with the strange, the extraordinary, the downright miraculous. David Almond is an award winning author and one of the finest writing for young adults Leggi tutto
Here's the first thing I have to say about this book: I got through most of it. No, not even got through it...I rather enjoyed the first 3/4ths of the novel. But something about it just didn't do it for me. I'm usually the first person to see a book through, but as soon as another book came along... Leggi tutto
من اصلا ارتباط برقرار نمیکنم با دیوید آلموند انگار، نه این کتاب رو درک میکردم نه وحشی رو. معلوم نیست داستان ترسناکه یا چی و کلا چی میخواد بگه. یه بچهای میاد، موجود هراسناکی از گِل میسازن که میتونه آدما رو بکشه حتا و بعد بچههه غیب میشه و معلوم نیست چی شده و راوی هم برمیگرده سر زندگیش. خیلی ح Leggi tutto
Keista knyga. Prasideda lengvai nuo padykusių vaikinų patarnaujančių bažnyčioje, rūkančių tėvų cigaretes ir besipešančių su bendraamžiais, bet kuo toliau, tuo labiau gilyn į mišką. Vienas herojus sujaukia vaikino mintis ir visa likusi istorija plaukia lyg per sapną. Knygoje nemažai mistinių elementų Leggi tutto
A YA book with some dark overtones. I liked the writing---easy to read-- but didn't like where the story went in the second half of the book --a bit haunting and foreboding and I was questioning just who the target audience was.
The horror of this story did not affect me the first time I read it. Stephen is evil, no two ways about it. Davie is naive and ready to be manipulated by God or the Devil. But what about something in-between? What about someone who is just a lonely boy whose father is dead and mother is in a mental
no don’t think wrong ,I didn’t finish this book .well,because it was so so so so bad for me .I think because all at first step when I just saw that this book is from David Allmond I just lost my hope about this book .because I read and other book from him and that book was really the worst book I ha Leggi tutto

David Almond is constantly surprising me. I knew immediately that this would be like the golem story, but I continued on, expecting something more than that, and I was not disappointed. I swallowed the entire thing in one afternoon and my brother will testify when I tell you that there were moments
What to say about CLAY? I think Brent said it best: Frankenstein meets Demian, meets The Outsiders, with a twist of the old Golem story. David and his best friend Geordie have it pretty good...they steal scramental wine from the church and cigarettes from their dads. They run the neighborhood, looki Leggi tutto
