Shelves: beloved, rob
O iubesc pe Melania Lupu, e unul dintre personajele mele feminine preferate, insa pe parcurusl romanului, am empatizat cu Cirstescu si mi-am dorit sa nu fie implicata, sa stea cuminte si sa-si foloseasca mintea geniala in alte scopuri decat "baletul printre paragrafele codului penal". De fapt, mi-ar fi placut sa ramana un fel de consultant precum in volumul anterior (Disparitia statuii din parc), luandu-se la intrecere cu Minerva in gasirea celor mai fanteziste conexiuni pentru a descoperii ...more

"Îl auzi în vestibul fluierând vesel - se simţea tânăr, întreprinzător, plin de seducţie, gata să ia cu asalt orice redută - apoi uşa apartamentului se închise cu zgomot...
- O să mi-o plătească! decise femeia cu voce tare. Cu preţ cumplit! Ultimul pe care-l poate plăti cineva!
Se duse în bucătărie şi luă al treilea festal. Gestul cu care duse paharul la gură era acela al sinucigaşului. Dar nu ea avea să moară. O hotărâre ireversibilă."

Marian Dragu este ucis, iar maiorul Cristescu este într-o mare

After reading some philosophical books, I decided to change the direction completely, towards some crime novels from Romanian famous author (for this genre) Rodica Ojog-Brasoveanu. The humor and casual style full of idiomatic expression on the background of 80s Bucharest makes the savory of the novel.

The premise is hardly ever a surprise in detective stories. They all try to prove that no matter how clever a criminal is, he/she will always be caught. The surprise for this one, is that there are

Best out of all the 6 volumes in the Melania Lupu series.

1 peculiar character is threatened to be murdered by 5 different people, with 5 different motives. When he is really killed, they all confess to the murder and the task of the police and the wonderful detective Cristescu is to prove who is lying. To prove to them that they are innocent.

Melania is this time introduced in the story a little later, but it's worth the wait. She has an incredible part this time - best of her performances.

Probably one of the best crime novels i've read in a while. Humour, tragedy, romance, all mix themselves beautifully under the author's witty style of writing. With a very well balanced pace, it captures the reader in a twisted spiral revolving around the famous Melania Lupu in such way that it combines comedy and tragedy as seen in all Romanian social classes. It gets even better if you imagine Toma Caragiu as major Cristescu.

Stilul inconfundabil al autoarei, umor si suspans, doi protagonisti cu totul speciali (Melania si Mirciulica) - cartea asta are tot ce trebuie. O recomand! Recomand toata seria "Melania Lupu" care m-a cucerit cu unul din cele mai geniale personaje, cu monologuri hilare si cu numeroasele ocazii de a rade in hohote.

Cartile cu Melania Lupu ne plac deoarece: au indeajuns de mult suspans, au doza minima de umor si o atingere "retro".
