Una din putinele carti din biblioteca mamei care mi-a placut la nebunie. Din pacate ea are doar o carte dintr-o serie detul de consistenta. Oricum un roman politist cu actiune undeva prin sec. XVI, cu o prezentare superba a lumii de la acea vreme si cuo povestire mai mult decat atragatoare.
Superb!

Alaturi de Cei trei Muschetari, Cocosatul lui Paul Feval este una dintre cele mai apreciate romane de capa si spada.
In copilarie eram innebunit dupa astfel de romane.
Zevaco, Dumas tatal, Dumas fiul, Sabatini, Leroux, Montepin, Walter Scott, Gautier, Paul Feval erau autorii pe care-i devoram si pe ale caror aventuri si personaje le copiam si le repuneam in scena cu ajutorul unor paturi sau esarfe puse pe umeri, o palarie pleostita de la bunicul meu cu o pana de paun si o sabie de plastic de care

Personaje puternice, neînfricate ce dovedesc mult curaj și simț al onoarei, detalii istorice bine documentate, aventuri spectaculoase ce te țin cu sufletul la gură până la final, plus povestea de iubire neconvențională, dar care te cucerește prin intensitatea sentimentelor dintre cei doi eroi, toate acestea fac din Cocoșatul o carte memorabilă, pe care a-i reciti-o cu plăcere la orice vârstă.

Ajjj, nem is tudom, hogy hogyan kezdjem.
Az író, ahogyan leirta a történetet nagyszerű volt. A legfőképpen Aurore és Lagardere párbeszédei, csodálatosak! *.*
Ajánlom a könyvet bárkinek, sőt, ezt a könyvet mindenkinek érdemes elolvasni egyszer az életében.
A történet hamar beindul, ami miatt már nagyon megszerettem ezt a storyt. A főhősnő elmeséli a gyermekkorát, s igy sikerül igy jobban megkedvelnem őt, és sikerül megismerni Aurore és Lagardere történetét, amit az eltelt tizennyolc év összefogla

Ох, свърши!!! Мислех, че някога съм чела тази книга и съм я харесала, а сега я препрочитам. Не съм много убедена в това, защото докато четях за нищичко не се сетих.

Това си е типичният приключенски роман, който те вкарва в интригите на френския двор. Няма лошо в това. Няма лошо и да ни запознаят малко с историята, с обстановката, с вътрешния мир на героите, със словоохотливостта им /има държане на речи почти непрестанно, за щяло и нещяло/, обаче по някоето време това ти идва прекалено. То край н

This is an adventure novel from the golden age of swashbuckler literature (more commonly known in the french form of "roman de cape et d’épée"). It has the main elements of the genre, but also it is clear that Paul Feval was a gifted writer. He uses some literary techniques that are quite uncommon for other authors of the genre. Among them I mention flashback and inner voice of more than one characters.

Going to characters, I must admit that at least the main ones are quite well built. They are n

Tak asi to nebude kniha úplně pro všechny, ne že by byla náročná na čtení, to ne, ale asi by vám neseděl děj. Každopádně Paul Féval píše parádně. Stvořil napínavý a poutavý příběh, který posloužil několikrát jako filmová předloha. Pokud se tedy nebudete pouštět do knihy, pustě si nějaký film. Nedoporučuju Hrbáče z roku 1997. Mně osobně se tohle zpracování nelíbilo, ale možná to bylo proto, že jsem četla knihu. Každopádně je tam spousta věcí úplně jinak.

Lagardére je pro mě nádherná postava. Troch

Les romans d'Alexandre Dumas constituent pour moi un plaisir coupable. Ayant épuisé le catalogue Dumas, j'ai decide de lire "Le Bossu" qui d'après la légende est le roman cap et épée le plus vendu au dix-neuvième siècle. Il a été un énorme deception. Le roman possède une surabondance de rebondissements et une intrigue d'opérette bourrée des pires clichés. Il y a meme une princesse élévé par des gitaines. L'héroine est pourvue de pureté qu'elle est dépourvue d'intelligence. L'héros a des talents ...more

Kristova noho, to jsem si teda dala. Strašná blbina. Fakt, zlatá Angelika. On je krásný, ona je krásná, její otec byl krásný, matka super krásná, všichni ostatní jsou taky krásní i hlavní lotr je ohromně krásný. Dialogy horší než v harlekýnkách, intriky a zápletka hodné tak jihoamerické telenovely. Dvacet let tam plánujeme hroznou pomstu a nakonec vymyslíme takovouhle blbinu? Málem jsem z toho lezla po zdi. Aspoň chápu, proč se o tomhle francouzském romanopisci ve škole neučí.

Very dramatic and beautiful story about ordinary thing like love, honour and revange. But what I diddn't expected - that it would be so perfect written, that you don't realize, how unrealistic the story is. I certainly recommend it.

Lo que puedo decir de esta obra, es que me parecio corta, simple, y de alguna manera aburrida. Maneja todo el ciclo
de la dama en peligro, el caballero galante que la rescata, los amigos que lo ayudan, etc. Aunque con un ligero cambio.
ya que al final no se queda con la dama, sino que la secuestran de nuevo y todo comienza de nuevo. A lo mejor este cambio es lo que mola, tan solo un poco eh!.

Aussi connu sous le titre le chevalier de Lagardère.

Roman de cape et d'épée. Un classique. Il faut voir l'interprétation de Jean Piat pour encore plus apprécier.

Histoire du chevalier de Lagardère qui devient tuteur de la fille du duc de Nevers et qui tente de la restituer dans son titre et son héritage.
Naturellement, ça finit bien!

Un peu démodé probablement.

3.5/5

An exceptional read! None of the numerous movies made after it have managed to do it justice and capture its essence. A story about loyalty, honor, love, friendship, deceit and betrayal. Drama, romance, action, an amazing plot with a more than just and symbolic ending!

Un roman captivant qui a fait rêver le fan de capes et d' épées que j' étais et suis toujours. La botte de Nevers ! Qu'est-ce que j' ai pu en rêver ! Puis ce costume de bossu... J' ai jamais trop aimé la fin par contre... Mon côté bégueule sans doute...
