    • Like weird books? STEP RIGHT UP. This is about a lucid dreamer who is a professional jewel thief in his dreams. David is a skilled diver. When he "dives" into his dreams, he brings back treasures that turn into ectoplasm when he wakes. (Yes, that stuff from Ghostbusters.) Ectoplasm is a high form of art in David's world. But on David's last dive, the ectoplasm starts fighting back, and he must figure out how to protect himself and safely wake. See? I told you - weird. Awesome weird.Tune in to ou [...]


    • while featuring the inventiveness, darkness, no get out jail card that made the author such a favorite, i am not sure why this (originally published in 1992) novel was chosen for his English language debut as out of 100+ works there are so many better in all his genres (whether pure sf, sf with horror or historical or fantasy or thriller elements, pure thrillers, historical fiction, pure horror etc) and I can think of 20+ I read I would highly recommend and would have chosen instead of this fair [...]


    • I am in a complete state of amazed joy at this surprising little book. I read it cold, and I suggest you, gentle reader, do so as well. It is great fun, wise, sad, and satirically spot on in regards to the double-edged pleasures of an imaginary life through exposure to creative literary artists.Gentle reader, have you ever had a weekend entirely to yourself with no obligations, so maybe after breakfast you settled down on the couch with a new book? Then, when next you lifted your eyes because of [...]


    • delivreenlivres/20 Un récit qui part sur une bonne idée, et qui a une ambiance bien particulière, mais qui tombe un peu à plat.Nous suivons David qui est un médium. Il a la capacité de plonger dans ses rêves et d'en sortir quelques jours après avec un étrange objet qui s’apparente à une œuvre d'art. Plus le rêve est fort, plus l'œuvre en question le sera.Cette forme d'art, très encadrée, a totalement remplacé les anciennes formes comme la peinture ou la sculpture. C'est compré [...]


    • This is a hard book to review. Conceptually, it's super cool, albeit very strange. Like strange, strange. In execution, this book is kind of confusing and has an experimental feel to it. Brussolo has invented a world where mediums exist, and no, not the kind of medium that is psychic. These mediums have the ability to go into a deep trance-like dream for days, during which weird, smoky stuff floats out of their mouths and congeals into an ectoplasm thing upon waking. Let that sink in for a minut [...]


    • We begin in media heist.David Sarella works with a trusted crew. His accomplice Nadia is a gorgeous redhead dressed in black leather. Jorgo may be a bit simple-headed, but he is an excellent driver. They plan to break into an upscale jewelry store in an exclusive shopping district and empty the safe. Their immediate problem is that the sleek, black automobile they have chosen for this escapade is transforming into a shark. The metal frame has become slimy and the fish smell is unbearable. These [...]


    • "If anyone found out, you could be arrested for unlawful dreaming!"Impeccable dream logic that leads to great moments of catharsis, where you realize what you're reading is totally ridiculous but you don't care because you're having too much funad dreams were an exceptional source of pollutionSimilar in concept to Inception and The Matrix, but it's a lot more fun. Kind of likeHeroes Die. My only quibble is that by the end of the first chapter it almost feels as if he's exhausted the possibilitie [...]


    • Una din cartile care ne arata ce poate imaginatia autorului.Aceasta este prima carte tradusa in engleza. Nu e o alegere inspirata, autorul are carti mult mai bune. Totodata cei care au vazut Paprika si Inception vor avea parte de un soc din partea acestei carti scrise in 1992.


    • It's hard to describe this book except to say that is is gorgeous and troubling and evocative and feels utterly original.


    • About 10 years ago I started reading SF books in French to help improve my language skills. It is more fun for me to read modern books in SF than to try to read the classics, and the language is much closer to what is currently spoken as well. (Though SF, and especially fantasy, often has many made-up words.)Along the way I've discovered some really interesting writers, most of whose works have never been translated to English. Serge Brussolo is not one of my favorites, yet his work is consisten [...]


    • I was lucky enough to receive an advance reader's copy of The Deep Sea Diver's Syndrome. It's Brussolo's first book translated into English, so I'm hopeful that more will follow. Much like how the character David created a tangible world in his dreams, so Brussolo created such a world in this book. A world in which works of art literally come from the minds of dreamers, with rules and hazards all its own. From the very first page, I was drawn into the world of the story by the author's juicy lan [...]


    • They call this book a neo noir but I think it's more of a dream like fantasy. David is a professional jewel thief in his "dreams". Along with his accomplice Nadia, the pair breaks into museums and high end jewelry stores escaping on motorcycles. This book was an easy read but I found it a bit wanting in the reality department. It is a great read if you like fantasy and noir which I do on occasion. I highly recommend this book.


    • Strange and unusual is the best I can do to describe this novel. But, a good weird it was. Was it truly all a dream? Maybe a living nightmare? I feel like there are multiple angles to approach this story, as well as myriad ways to explore what it truly means. This is one of those little nuggets that land on a college syllabus.



    • I finished it ages ago but had no idea how to review itI love weird and strange and this sure had that in spades. At best I can say, read it and judge for yourself. :)


    • Portrait science-fictionnel de l'art contemporain, plongeant autant dans la psychanalyse que dans le monde onirique en passant par la plongée sous-marine, Le syndrome du scaphandrier est un drôle de roman qui, pourtant, m'a tenu en haleine très longtemps. Par la cohérence de ses propos, mais aussi par ses tournures inattendues qui m'ont fait penser à l'occasion à Inception. C'est un roman dans lequel on se plonge, sans savoir si l'on survivra à la remontée. Une intrigue haletante qui nou [...]


    • Un univers qui donne envie d'être connu mais qui s'épuise vite. Et un rapport homme/femme archaïque, clairement misogyne.


    • I'm a deep sea diver, I work in the artworld and recently I've been glomming onto my dreams. Suffice to say I was really really excited to read this book and therefore, not surprisingly, I was a little disappointed. It's a short book and it moves quickly. I was most of the way through before I started to get into it's rhythm and fully appreciate the world within, only to realize it was already wrapping up. I found myself wanting more, wishing for more world-building. I wanted to dive deeper (no [...]


    • This is an English translation of a French novel, originally published in 1992. The book presents us with a unique idea about mediums and art. From the cover flap: “They call them Mediums – professional dreamers who dive into the dream world to retrieve items that convert to valuable artworks in the waking world. What’s more, the more dangerous the dream, the more valuable that art becomes.” You are never told exactly what these artworks were made of, but enough hints are given for the r [...]


    • It became evident what the ending of the book would be by the second chapter, so in order for me to enjoy the book the author had to make the telling interesting. He failed. I made it to about page 80 before I stopped reading. Some of the main reasons for stopping:* Obscenity (particularly against Catholicism, but not limited to that) - I'm not overly prudish, but I felt that Brussolo pushed the envelope and I found it distasteful. It felt like reading a school-boy's attempts at being naughty, w [...]


    • Just something that caught my eye as I was browsing the shelves. I think the translation from French to English was just slightly off. Just a word here or there that from some reason did not seem to exactly feel right. It was hard for me to nail it down. Perhaps that is why I did not rate it as highly as I hoped.Overall a good fantasy world where dreams form tangible items in the real world that are traded and enjoyed. Old masterpieces have become junk and routinely discarded. The dreamers 'dive [...]


    • Enjoyable, quick read for fans of vaguely surrealist imaginative fiction. The cover blurbs namecheck Ballard and Philip K Dick, and while that's not wrong, this is a more alternate-world tale of a man who "dives" deep into his dreams, interprets them as near-reality, and by stealing things brings them out of his dreams in the form of ectoplasmic trinkets to be sold by a museum. The conceit is clever and well-done, while our protagonist David is a hapless case who doesn't bring in the monumental [...]


    • "[The Deep Sea Diver's Syndrome] is an engagingly written, relentlessly imaginative work of genius, something that will make you believe in the power of books again. Forgive me for comparing this to a film, but this book is like Christopher Nolan’s Inception (though the original novel predates this film by more than a decade) as directed by Michel Gondry: a supreme work of imagination, rendered brilliantly." - J. David OsborneThis book was reviewed in the May/August 2016 issue of World Literat [...]


    • le premier Brussolo que j'ai lu, un peu par hasard ; ça a été un choc. Je n'en ai pas lu de meilleur depuis ; du coup j'avais été un peu déçu par le suivant. Il me semble que pour celui-ci l'auteur s'est particulièrement appliqué, alors que dans d'autres il écrit un peu par dessus la jambe. Mais même dans ses moins bons romans on trouve toujours ce qui fait de lui un auteur à part : des images d'une puissance incroyable !


    • Un peu déçu par la fin de l'histoire, beaucoup de questions restent en suspends. Pourquoi le héros pert-il sa cléptomanie? Que devient l'éctoplasme de son avant-dernier rêve? Il y a aussi des incohérences, ou alors je n'ai pas bien compris l'histoire.À part cela, le récit est assez impressionant, une vraie plongée avec quelques références à l'anticipation et à la psychologie. Bonne lecture.


    • This book is really special. It doesn't feel so much like a story as like one mad man's introspective monologue or nightmare.But on the plus side the universe created bu Brussolo once more is fascinating.


    • I've always been fascinated by dreams and lucid dreaming in particular, but I didn't really like any of the main characters and some of the concepts presented were just too far "out there" for me to suspend disbelief enough to fully enjoy the story.


    • It was really good. Easy to read. A very good plot, nice story. I mean, really, everything was good & I enjoyed my time with David & his story.



    • I get that this preceded Inception by at least a decade. Still, Inception did it way, way better.Felt like this author muddled metaphors way too much
