Se leggere vuol dire aprirsi a un'avventura, con i romanzi di Bjorn Larsson non ci sono dubbi: all'avventura veniamo trascinati, spinti di pagina in pagina da una storia che ci avvince, un ritmo incalzante, una suspense abilmente tenuta, e da quella sete di libertà e verità che anima i suoi protagonisti rendendoceli così attraenti. Nel fluido e mobile elemento del mare, ...more

I thought that I would hate this book but was I surprised. It had all the flavor of the open seas and canals (in Scotland) and murder in the telling of this tale. Björn Larsson had gone from Sweden to Denmark to Scotland in his telling of this tale (in January). It was done in 1990 but you are brought into Ulf's and his friend Torben's attempt at figuring out the Celtic Ring, in Scotland. Björn doesn't let you go to long without a robbery, attempted murder, a beheading, and self defense. I ...more

I was surprised by how much I loved this book, I didn't want it to end. It was gripping and raised some interesting points. And so, so much boat love!

3,5/5 Ce roman est classé «policier». C’est certes une histoire remplie de suspense et de mystère, mais sans vraiment de policier, détective, armes à feu, meurtre. Tout comme les personnages principaux, l’auteur a vécu plusieurs années sur un bateau et ça se voit. Les termes, les actions des personnages sont très détaillés et appropriés. Évidemment, il faut avoir le gout d’une histoire maritime, si ce n’est pas le cas, ce livre n’est pas pour vous. J’aurais probablement eu plus de plaisir à le ...more

"Mentre il Rustica avvicinava la prua al vento, sono corso sul ponte, ho ammainato la randa, ho fissato l'occhiello al terzarolo, ho cazzato la borosa e ho issato nuovamente la vela. Poi ho ammainato il fiocco e l'ho assicurato lungo il ponte."
Ecco a parte alcuni altri passaggi come questo, per me praticamente ostrogoto, tutto il resto é di piacevolissima lettura.
Poi come leggo nella postfazione la quale ha confermato le mie impressioni, la storia é un po inverosimile, ma tutto sommato non é che

Korkat att jag inte hittar boken på svenska! Eller symptomatisk? Jag har hört att Björn Larsson är mera uppskattad nere på kontinenten
Det här är en bra bok framförallt om du gillar sjöäventyr och segling. Och Skottland. Märkligt att jag mest ser Skottland som berg och djupa smala sjöar. Tydligen betyder "loch" fjord o inte sjö. Eller både och. Skottarna har i alla fall mycket kust och skärgård och i denna bok får man segla förbi flera intressanta platser. Så är det lite thriller, och så är det

Das Buch war ok, und vor allen Dingen mal eine neue Thematik für mich. Allerdings fand ich es nicht ganz so mega-spannend. Ich musste mich zwar beim Lesen auch nicht quälen, aber mir hat irgendwie so der Spannungshöhepunkt gefehlt. Sicher, es gab oft lebensbedrohliche Situationen, aber so richtiges Mitfiebern wollte bei mir nicht aufkommen. Vielleicht lag es auch daran, dass ich nur eine 'Beziehung' zu dem Erzähler aufgebaut hatte, nicht aber zu den anderen Personen und deshalb auch nicht ...more

I did enjoy this book, although at times I found the style a little dry. Of course, it had been translated from the original Swedish, so maybe that had something to do with it.
The book has a fascinating plot which revolves around the mysterious Celtic Ring, and the atmosphere provided by the descriptions of sailing and remote Scottish anchorages certainly adds to the drama. Mix in some elusive villains, a beautiful woman who is under the threat of death, and a charismatic but ambiguous Scotsman

Amo i racconti di mare e Il cerchio celtico non fa eccezione.

Il romanzo segue il viaggio dei due amici a bordo del Rustica, dalla Danimarca alla Scozia, attraverso acque agitate, isole misteriose, castelli in rovina e temibili società segrete. Ulf e Torben scendono a terra spesso, ma solo per brevi periodi di tempo. La maggior parte dell'azione e della narrazione si svolge in mare, che è il luogo in cui il narratore...

A great thriller mixing mythology and magic with detective work. A great book for sailboat and sea lovers. A great book for Ireland lovers. A great book for those who love the dark Scandinavian thrillers. I read this many times and always enjoy it. I read it as I was travelling in Ireland.

I'm still sailing on the blood-red seas around the island of Coll. Will write a proper review when my mind's eye's stopped visualizing it.

Una bella avventura, anche se a tratti troppo tecnica per i miei gusti. Dedicata a chi ama e conosce il mare.

Je m'attendais à une intrigue plus ficellée; on part à la dérive avec les personnages. Bien écrit, mais tout en longueurs et finalement, on m'a perdu. Je ne l'ai pas fini.

Belles descriptions maritimes et explications de navigation. Donne envie de suivre sur un ecarte et d'y aller.
Quelques maladresses d estyles.

Meglio di quanto mi aspettassi, visto il mio rapporto di amore-odio con gli autori nordici e le avventure di mare...rimane un genere a me lontano, ma è stata una lettura coinvolgente :)

Once you are done reading it, you will feel an incredible love for the sea and it's marvels... a must read!
