সুবিশাল উপনযাসের শেষ গিয়ে যখন দেখা যায় ... শেষ হইয়াও হইল না শেষ, তখন এক ধরণের শূনযতা এসে ভর করে। গলপটা সমাপত, কিনতু অসমাপত। তবে সিরিজের বই যেহেতু, বযাপারটা এক অরথে অযৌকতিক বলা যায় না।

বইটার অনূদিত হবার খবর পেয়েছি যেদিন থেকে সেদিন থেকে পড়ার ইচছা ছিল। পড়া শুরু করে কিছুটা গযাপ পড়েছিল, তারপর দুই সিটিং দিয়ে শেষ করেছি। গলপের কাহিনী শুরুতে কিছুটা সলো কিনতু এক চতুরথাংশ পড়েই ছুটে চলেছে দূরবার গতিতে। কাহিনীর পেকষাপট খুব বিসতৃত নয়, পলটও একমুখী তবুও পড়তে মজা লেগেছে।

গলপের পরধান চরিতর তরিমাল-নায়েককে আমার একদ

«Siamo inesorabili» incalzò l'indiano.
«Ma tu non hai dunque mai amato?» chiese ella, piangendo di rabbia «non sai adunque cosa sia una passione infranta?»
Salgari con la sua penna mi fa volare, ma il personaggio di Tremal-Naik non si avvicina neppure lontanamente né a Sandokan e né, tantomeno, al Corsaro Nero (lode e gloria a lui!). Forse non l'ho tanto sopportato perché in questo romanzo il suo ruolo è quello dell'eroe il cui intelletto -mi vien da pensare, già di per sé esiguo- è totalmente ott

অনেক আগরহ নিয়ে শুরু করেছিলাম। বই যতো এগিয়েছে পরধান চরিতরটাকে ততোই তরল আর বিরকতিকর লাগছিলো। বরং তাঁর সঙগীকে অনেক বেশী মযাচিউরড লেগেছে। যেটুকু ভালো লেগেছে তা ঐ অনুবাদের মান। কারণ সেবার অনুবাদ নিয়ে তো কোন কথা বলার সুযোগ নাই। ...more

Devo ammettere di aver saltato completamente la lettura dei libri di Salgari durante la mia infanzia. Sicuramente se li avessi letti da piccola li avrei trovati straordinari, gli ingredienti per affascinare un bambino ci sono tutti: avventura, violenza, intrighi e passione. Cosa pretendere di più da un libro di avventure? La storia è coinvolgente e le soluzioni per tenere viva l'attenzione sono davvero fantasiose e, a parte qualche piccola ingenuità nella trama (ma, calcolando che è un libro del ...more

Nostalgic re-read of a childhood favourite. Sadly, some books, like this one, have a perfect age and time after which they lose their magic.

Il secondo libro della serie della Malesia segue esattamente la stessa trama del primo, "Le tigri di Mompracem" ma e' meno avvincente e coinvolgente. Il ritmo e' lo stesso, senza momenti di pausa ma non riesce a ricreare lo stesso senso di avventura del primo. E' piu' drammatico nella rappresentazione della storia d'amore e gioca maggiormente con il clima di mistero che caratterizzava alla fine del 1800, e ancora caratterizza, la visione europea dell'India.

I will be presenting a cool Italian author. He happens to write incredible adventure stories and to be the most famous Italian writer in this genre. He is the Italian version of Jules Verne (you know, the guy behind Twenty Thousand Leagues under The Sea). He lived between 1862 and 1911 and most of his books were translated in many languages and subsequently adapted on the big screen.

Now, I know what you're thinking. The dude lived in a century so far away, what on Earth could he possibly write t

When I was a child, I was a fan of Sandokan, both the cartoons and the TV mini series starring Kabir Bedi. I am also a fan of classic adventure novels, as cheesy as they are. It was only a matter of time to get my hands on The Mystery of the Black Jungle, the first book on The Pirates of Malaysia series, which deals with Sandokan and his crew.

Well, I finally did, and I didn't love it.

I actually have mixed feelings about this one. Even for a classic adventure, the characters are rather flat and

Tremal-Naik und der Tempel des Todes

Wer die Vorlage für den zweiten Indiana-Jones-Film sucht, wird hier fündig werden. Hier gibt es alles: Krokodile, dunkle Götter und Kulte, Nashörner, Tiger, böse Thugs, Kali-Statuen, Opferrituale und alles, was zu einer wilden Jagd durch den bengalischen Dschungel gehört; trotzdem ist es zumindest stilistisch ein eher an Jugendliche addressiertes Buch.

Dieser Roman lebt von seinen Emotionen. Während die Handlung sich aufs Einfachste reduziert, ist ein Großteil

I misteri della Giungla Nera ci porta in India, esattamente nel Delta del fiume Gange ed esattamente sei anni dopo le vicende di Sandokan narrateci ne Le tigri di Mompracem. Ma stavolta interrompiamo le mitiche vicende della Tigre della Malesia per seguire le non meno avventurose vicende del Cacciatore di serpenti Tremal-Naik il quale, un giorno, vede in mezzo alla giungla una bellissima ragazza (no, non è Lady Marianna!) e se ne innamora perdutamente. Assieme al suo schiavo Kammamuri si inoltra ...more

(...) personaggi che si esprimono non ciascuno con un suo proprio linguaggio che li definisca, ma con il linguaggio che i lettori, nei loro desideri di autopromozione sociale, avrebbero voluto parlare: l'italiano panneggiato, «impostato» del melodramma. Artificiale, finto, ma con pretese d'eleganza, di decoro, esperto degli usi del mondo. Il linguaggio delle passioni simulate, ma non per questo meno attraenti. Che cosa sarebbe il melodramma senza la falsità patente delle sue convenzioni? Allo st ...more

Dopo innumerevoli tentativi negli scorsi anni, finalmente riesco a finirlo. Pesante, prolisso, insistente fino al fastidio su determinati concetti che particolarmente stanno a cuore all'autore e in generale molto influenzato dal periodo e dall'occasione (pubblicazione a puntate su un giornale) per la quale è stato scritto. I personaggi sono macchiette, l'esotismo è ricercato in gran parte con termini specifici sconosciuti ai più e l'emozione con espressioni roboanti. Assoltamente non adatto

A fun read set in British India. Tremal-Naik, a tiger hunter has his life turned upside down when he encounters a beautiful woman in the heart of the Black Jungle. Though Salgari's India may not be completely accurate, he filled the novel with intriguing characters and enough action to keep me turning the pages.

Though I still prefer the Sandokan adventures, this is a fun prequel, and, like the Tigers of Mompracem, the story is the classic man meets beautiful woman saves her from... Salgari was

Il ciclo Indio-Malese: Divampanti fulgori nelle foreste della notte
Le storie di questo ciclo di sono caratterizzate da un tono solare nonostante siano ben presenti i temi della vendetta e della ribellione nei confronti di un ingiusto invasore. I protagonisti Sandokan, Yanez, Tremal-Naik e Kammammuri hanno attraversato i decenni diventando icone di questo tipo di avventura, magari ingenua, ma decisamente molto, molto coinvolgente.

Amori di gioventù. L'edizione su cui sono cresciuta era un tascabile appartenuto a mio padre non so bene edito da chi. Per mancanza di spazio mia madre li portò alla biblioteca scolastica , con mio grande dolore, assieme a tutti i libri su cui mi ero formata.... Da grande ho ricomprato l'edizione economica. Forse libri non di pregio ma "formativi" per la mia infanzia.
Omar Trinidad Gutiérrez Méndez
Del ciclo Los tigres de Malasia de Salgari (de los cuales leí varios hace ya mucho tiempo) no había leído este.

Está entretenido, que genial hubiese sido leerlo en la primaria. Este volumen nos presenta a Tremal-Naik y sus aventuras para poder hacer su esposa a Ada Corishant y eliminar a los thugs.

I just couldn't stop reading! It's amazing how Salgari take us to an exotic land, and almost make us feel like we are in the middle of the jungle, or on the stream of Ganges. And the story line it's just amazing, simple enough, but the twists and the action after action.

El libro que comenzó todo. Hasta que cayó en mis manos (tenía 11 años) no podría decirse que era un lector, pero me atrapó y luego nunca mas dejé de leer. No se si será el mejor libro de Salgari, pero detonó en mi el placer por leer.

Le debo mucho a este libro, gracias a él he vivido mil vidas y viajado a muchos universos.

When I was younger, I loved watching the Sandokan TV series (both cartoon and action) so I gave this book a try. I thought it was okay, but it didn't really catch my interest. I thought the plot was a little strained and dull, but I will try the next book in this series.

Lessi questo libro anni fa... ma ricordo che rimasi attaccata alle sue pagine per tutta una giornata, finché non riuscii a finirlo.
Coinvolgente, scritto bene, con personaggi a cui non si riesce a non affezionarsi... un libro che dovrò rileggere prima o poi!
Consigliatissimo!
