Fade - Robert Cormier

This exciting and thought-provoking thriller by the well-established American writer ... more

(author of The Chocolate War and  many other
titles) is guaranteed to grip the attention of
imaginative teenagers as fascinated by  fantasies
of brutality and violence as by ideas about
personal morality and self control. The  Fade
begins quietly enough in a depression-hit
French-Canadian town when13-year-old Paul  Moreaux
discovers he has inherited from his uncle the
"gift" of fading into invisibility. Before you 
know it, Paul moves beyond being a voyeur of
dubious sexual antics to finding himself a guilt-
ridden murderer. Worse follows when the hereditary
gene manifests itself in his schizophrenic 
teenage nephew who lays waste to the town he lives
in and sets out to murder those closest to  him.
Reminiscent of Mary Shelley's story about
Frankenstein and his poor benighted  monster,
Cormier's story is at once terrifyingly exciting
and sadly sobering, exploring, as it does  man's
capacity for inhumanity to man. --by Tamsin Palmer

Is it a gift...or a curse

AdvantagesGripping, dark and compelling

DisadvantagesA slightly taxing read, not for a light summer day

"This young boy has a gift, passed down generation to generation by the males in the family. He has the ability to turn invisible at his own will. Robert Cormier, in my opinion, has always been an outstanding author, and as this book had stunning reports I immediately invested in it for my collection. Paul, the boy with the gift, loves his new ability at first, until he realises that it can be used for good, as well as even. Lovers of suspense novels ..." Read review
