Oops, zu spät bemerkt, dass es zu einer Trilogie gehört.

Thriller set in CHINA... a rather dystopian view of the country

"It was always about guilt and punishment, not about justice"



Paul is moseying about in a panda park with his small son David, when he is approached by a group of extremely well attired locals who want their photo taken with his lovely-looking young son. Their demands for the photo opportunity feel rather menacing, as David is wrested from his father's arms. After what feels like a thoroughly scary stand-off, Paul grapples him back an

Der Autor hat ein wunderschönes, berührendes und tief gehendes Buch geschaffen, das zum Nachdenken anregt. Über uns und die Gesellschaft. Über das ganze miteinander das wohl viel zu oft seine Grenze an zu viel Macht und Geld findet.

alla fine della giostra

Paul è un papà sbadato, di quelli di cui sono pieni i thriller, uno di quelli che lascia incustodito il suo bambino e poi passa gran parte del resto della storia a pentirsene, il tocco esotico dell'ambientazione serve solo a rendere più ostico il reperimento del pargolo in questione, oltretutto sarà anche vero che i cinesi di questi tempi non sono molto popolari all'estero, però che (view spoiler)

Für Sendkers Verhältnisse ist die Geschichte erstaunlich blutleer. Die Ausgangslage - mächtiger chinesischer Parteifunktionär will mit allen Mitteln süsses Kind klauen - wirkt etwas weit hergeholt, die anschliessende Flucht als einizige Story des Buches etwas dünn. Am besten gefallen haben mir noch der Teil "Das Dorf" und die Kapitel aus der Sicht von Da Lin.

Recommends it for: da leggere, attenzione è un "page-turner"
Una bella sorpresa.

Un inizio tranquillo, placido, vira rapidamente in tragedia, e in un incubo che non si risolverà, con non poche sofferenze, fino alla fine del libro.

Può essere letto come un giallo, non particolarmente sofisticato, ma la cosa più interessante sono i punti di vista dei vari protagonisti. L'autore riesce molto bene a rendere un senso opprimente di minaccia incombente, di claustrofobia, attraverso il punto di vista dei tre personaggi principali: il protagonista, la moglie e l'ami

I really wanted to enjoy this book but I’ve got to be honest.

After a strong start by page 100 I was completely bored. Total disclaimer, I didn’t finish the book.

The characters are good and the plot line is solid too, but, I feel disappointed that I never really felt I was in China. I could easily have been in any other city in the world visiting a zoo.... major disappointment.

Jehmineh.
Die ganze Trilogie war mir zu simpel, zu platt. Und Teil 3 setzt dem Ganzen die Krone auf.
Voller Klischees und in weiten Teilen wirklich hahnebüchen. Jaja, im Lande der gelben Gefahr, da werden am helllichten Tag die blondgelockten Kinder geklaut, sind sämtliche Polizisten korrupt und sind alle außer ein paar Gutmenschen entweder durchgeknallt oder ein Bösewicht. (insert irres Lachen)
Ich habs trotzdem ausgelesen, sowie auch die beiden ersten Teile, weil China. Und ein bisschen spannend
