« Robbe-Grillet nous revient, au meilleur de sa forme, avec une manière de conte fantastique, décoré d’un titre hugolien : Djinn. Que ce djinn-là soit une transcription phonétique du prénom féminin américain Jean, porté par une des figures majeures du récit, c’est une première malice. Elle sera suivie de beaucoup d’autres. Tout est jeu dans ce texte qui ne cesse de se dédoubler, en faisant oublier ce qu’il est pour donner l’illusion parfaite d’autre chose.
Ce livre réussit à être, en même temps, une merveilleuse histoire à dormir debout, aussi étrange qu’un conte d’Hoffmann, aussi souriante qu’une rêverie de Lewis Carroll, aussi rebondissante qu’une aventure de James Bond, et il nous apporte une excellente synthèse de l’univers romanesque de Robbe-Grillet.
Tout y est. Ses décors préférés, ses objets fétiches, ses intrigues favorites d’espionnage et ses reprises maniaques des mêmes scènes sous un éclairage différent.
Simon Lecœur, à los angeles recherche d’un emploi, tombe dans les rets d’une mystérieuse Américaine, Jean, qui le subjugue au element qu’il en devient aussitôt amoureux. Sans rien lui expliquer, elle le cost d’une challenge qu’un hindrance, apparemment imprévu, los angeles chute d’un enfant sur le pavé disjoint d’une ruelle imprecise, l’empêche d’accomplir. Cet twist of fate, parfaitement programmé au contraire, remet Simon entre les mains de deux enfants, Marie et Jean, qui le contraignent à jouer l’aveugle pour découvrir quelle supplier souterraine il sert : c’est une société de lutte contre le machinisme où l’on n’use, par ironie, que de machines et dont tous les brokers, découvre-t-on à l. a. fin du récit, après plusieurs variantes, ne sont que des robots.
Je pense que Robbe-Grillet n’est jamais allé aussi loin dans ses angoisses. C’est pourquoi Djinn, avec ce titre hanté et ce fil conducteur imposé, me paraît être un de ses ouvrages les plus prenants. » (Jacqueline Piatier, Le Monde)
