Irgendwo hatte ich gelesen, dass dies der schwächste Band des Zyklus sei. Grober Unfug. Derjenige sollte mal die Bastonade bekommen. In Punkto Humor, Abenteuerlichkeit, Dialoge, Atmosphäre, Figuren und Situationen ist das sogar ein ganz besonders schöner Roman. Die Bilder von der Schluchthütte, vom Turm der alten Mutter u.a. werde ich so schnell nicht vergessen und die Helden sind mir inzwischen so ans Herz gewachsen, dass ich wirklich niedergeschlagen wäre, wenn einem von denen noch was passier ...more

Тази поредица е любимото ми четиво, създадено от Карл Май! Невроятни мигове на удоволствие и вживяване в истотията и приключенията на Кара бен Немзи, Хаджи Халеф Омар и останалите участници :)

Някак с напредването на историята, силата ѝ полека-лека отмалява и последните книги не са толкова свежи и жизнени. Стават по-мрачни, героите търпят повече беди и четенето е по-тегаво.

Karl May va ramane intotdeauna autorul meu preferat de romane de aventura. Indiferent de unde, in ce timp are loc actiune, cu cine si in ce fel, cartile lui sunt spectaculoase.

I bought this as a way to exercise my German. I still haven't finished it.
