Ben kim kopek tam olarak. Ne haddime "yok zor okunuyor yok ot yok bok" diyorum Grange gibi birine. Saygilar efenim.

Бру-та-лия! Напипах автора, след като случайно попаднах в читанка на романа "Пурпурните реки" (филмът много ми се беше всладил навремето). Реших обаче да започна с първия роман изобщо в кариерата на тоя френски психар, който също е качен в сайта и не съжалих изобщо. Мой тип книжле - кратко, без излишно разтягане на локуми, задъхано действие - главният герой за няколко седмици изръшка Швейцария/Франция, България, Израел и се забоде в джунглите на Централна Африка, за да разплете мистерията, започ ...more

Vahşet, kan, cinayetler, kaçakçılık, leylekler... Bir film senaryosu gibiydi. Esaslı da film olur hani. Baş karakteri sevemedim. Merak duygusu kitap boyunca sürse de tahmin edilebilir bir olay örgüsü vardı. Okuduğum mekanları ve kişileri de araştırıp yeni şeyler öğrenmiş bulunmaktayım. Bilgilendirici olmadı diyemem ama bir şeyler eksikti sanki...

Mano pažintis su Grange buvo itin sėkminga ir maloni. Prieš porą metų perskaityta jo knyga „Limbų priesaika“ man paliko neišdildomą įspūdį. Joje buvo visko ką aš labiausiai mėgstu: intriga, stiprus detektyvas, siaubo prieskoniai, daug mistikos. Skaitydama tikrai jaučiausi lyg žiūrėčiau kokybišką siaubo filmą apie Vatikano paslaptis. Nuo tos vienos knygos Grange įtraukiau į mintyse kuriamą „skaitysiu visas šio autoriaus knygas“ sąrašą. Kadangi dauguma jo knygų buvo senesnio leidimo, dar ne visas ...more

Vay vay vay diyorum.

Hayvanlar alemiyle ilgili derin ve tüyler ürpertici şeyler duymayı beklerken birden elmas kafi ortaya atılıyor ve kuryeleri tahmin ediyorsunuz. Ama Nelly Louise 'i tekrar arayana kadar asıl maceranın nereye gittiğini anlamamıştım. O an kafama dank etti ve soka ugradim.

Vahsiligin kendi kani ya da insan hayatı söz konusu olduğunda ayrimsiz olması çok acımasızca.

Sonunu okuduğunuzda gözlerinize inanamayacaksiniz.

Romanın ortalarında aldığım keyif, yazarın mutlak şaşırtmak istediği “son” dan daha fazlaydı. Oldukça sürükleyici, ama bir Lontano veya Sisle gelen yolcu olamaz.

Τι να πει κανείς για τον Γκρανζέ; Τον γνώρισα απο το "Πορφυρά ποτάμια" και το "Η αυτοκρατορία των λύκων" που τα είδα σε ταινίες. Αποφάσισα να ασχοληθώ μαζί του όταν έπεσε στα χέρια μου το "Ελέησον με" και μαγεύτηκα. Βέβαια τώρα αφού έχω διαβάσει κ "Το πέταγμα των πελαργών" έχω μείνει άφωνη. Να το χαρακτηρίσω αριστουργηματικό μου φαίνεται λίγο. Ξεκινάς το ταξίδι σου με τον Λουί ακουλουθώντας τους πελαργούς χωρίς να έχεις ιδέα τι σε περιμένει. Πόσο αριστοτεχνικά περιγράφεται η κάθε στάση του ταξιδ ...more

Ο Γκρανζέ είναι μία κατηγορία μόνος του!Οι άλλοι απλά ακολουθούν..Βέβαια υπάρχει κι ο Καρίσι που τον κυνηγάει σα σκύλος :) Μετά το Ελέησον με και το Καικεν διάβασα τους πελαργούς και μπορώ να πω οτι κάθε σελίδα μετράει στα βιβλία που γράφει . Ο άνθρωπος είναι το κάτι άλλο..Ευτυχώς έχω και τα υπόλοιπα οπότε είμαι καλυμμένος.Διαβάστε όσοι γουστάρετε αστυνομικό θρίλερ με ανατροπές και σκηνές που θέλουν γερό στομάχι

Me ha gustado mucho. Me ha mantenido en tensión, deseando saber y a la vez temiendo lo que venía a continuación... Tiene varias tramas entrelazadas y algunos personajes de los que me hubiera gustado saber más, así que cuando terminé el libro me hubiera gustado continuar leyendo, pero el libro terminó y todo quedó cerrado... No es que falte nada, pero te quedas con ganas de más porque ha sido una lectura muy intrigante y, en ciertos momentos, desasosegante.

En résumé : un gros manque de crédibilité et beaucoup trop de détails "gores" inutiles. À titre d'exemple, est-ce qu'une femme dirait, peu de temps après que son frère qu'elle adorait a été assassiné : "Quand le corps a été découvert, il ne restait que l'épiderme du visage, qui ressemblait à un corps mal ajusté. Ses entrailles se déroulaient jusqu'à ses pieds." ? Non ! Elle pourrait dire, la larme à l'oeil, qu'il a été massacré, torturé, mais pas ça ! L'auteur ne sait simplement pas se mettre à ...more

Di grande interesse, davvero una piacevole scoperta questo autore. Sa raccontare, tiene avvinti, non lascia nulla per strada, è fluido anche nella narrazione di parti colte e "tecniche", benché sia soprattutto l'adrenalina che caratterizza una discreta parte di questo romanzo. Affascina la spiegazione del mondo dei rom, della vita nei territori occupati israeliani, della giungla africana con le misere condizioni di vita degli schiavi africani delle miniere, così come la dissertazione sulle cicog ...more

Le premier et pour moi, le meilleur Grangé: Sec, nerveux, tendu, un style fluide et limpide, sans fioritures, une originalité et une imagination folle, le tout hyper bien documenté. Un must du genre!

Le vol des cigognes est un polar psychologique et cruel. Il s’agit d’une histoire d’un homme d’une trentaine d’années qui part en voyage pour suivre la voie de migration de cigognes. Sur son passage qui porte sur plusieurs pays le personnage principale est amené à résoudre une énigme sanglante. Il s’avère que lors de son trajet à travers plusieurs pays les oiseaux blancs sont utilisés comme des courriers de diamants qui à son tour sont extraits dans les mines d’un pays d’Afrique.

Ne zaman polisiye tavsiyesi istesem karşıma çıkıyordu Grange. Mutlaka okunması gerektiğinden bahsediliyordu. Leyleklerin Uçuşu da zevkine güvendiğim bi ablam tarafından “okuduğum en iyi Grange romanı” diye etiketlenince başlamaktan başka çarem kalmadı. İyi ki de başlamışım.

İlk 30 sayfası “bu ne ya? nasıl sıradan bir polisiye bu” dedikten sonra, tam da bırakmak üzereyken 30. sayfada başlayan sır perdesiyle kendinizden geçiyorsunuz. Antioche‘nin bulduğu bazı detaylar sizi bir anda kitaba çekiyor v

Интересен замисъл, но като цяло историята е слаба.
Първо, ще започна с описанието на циганите в България - още малко ще излязат като евреите в Германия през 30-те. Па ядяли корени, па събирали билки ... аре нема нужда, ще кажа.
После, идеята да се използват щъркели за трафик на диаманти е много добра, но рано или късно и такъв трафик се хваща, Интерпол не спи.
Трето - образът на Сара и връзката и с Луи ми е много напудрен - той пада от небето в някакъв забравен от бога кибуц, тя му се хвърля на вра

Grangé ist wirklich ein Phänomen. Auf solche Geschichten muß man erst einmal kommen. Es gilt auch bei diesem Roman wieder: nichts für schwache Nerven (wie bei Grangé ja üblich), es geht teilweise wirklich heftig zur Sache. Aber die Story ist ausgezeichnet geschrieben und man taumelt von einem Albtraum in den nächsten. Als man denkt, nun sei die Geschichte weitgehend erledigt und geklärt, ist allerdings erst etwas über die Hälfte des Buches vorbei. Und Grangé schaltet nochmal einen Gang höher...

Lois ve leyleklerin Avrupa'dan Afrika'ya olan zekice bir kurguyla yazılmış olan macerasını konu alıyor. Sıkılmadan okuyabileceğiniz güzel bir Grangé eseri.

Her ne kadar Grangé'ın kurgusundan zevk almak için kendimi zorlasam da Türkçe çevirisi çok yetersiz ve dikkatsizce olduğu için kendimi kitaba kaptıramadım.

Po kilkunastu latach postanowiłem wrócić do książek Jeana Christophea Grange. Bardzo dawno temu przeczytałem "Purpurowe Rzeki" oraz obejrzałem film który był naprawdę świetny. Tym razem postanowiłem po bożemu zacząć od pierwszej książki tego autora. Wyznaczyłem sobie cel, że po kolei będę teraz sięgał po jego książki. "Lot Bocianów" utwierdził mnie w tym postanowieniu. Grange pisze naprawdę pod mój gust. Jego twórczość trzyma mnie w napięciu a spędzony z tą książką przyjemnie mijał. Zakładam, że ...more

More than many modern “thrillers,” Jean-Christophe Grangé’s Le vol des cigognes (The Flight of Storks) requires a substantial willing suspension of disbelief, there being many aspects of the narrative that are frankly incroyable. Early examples might include the finding of the mutilated body of the Swiss ornithologist Böhm in the nest of feeding storks high on a tower; the discovery on autopsy that he had had a cardiac transplant that apparently no one knew about; the inexplicable breaking into ...more

Un jeune étudiant se laisse convaincre de participer à une enquête ornithologique. Rapidement, les événements prennent un tour plus dramatique et violent. L'enquête se déplace sur de curieux trafics ayant cours dans le monde entier, bien cachés et aussi bien gardés. Une aventure qui va également conduire le héros à des découvertes personnelles inattendues. J'ai trouvé beaucoup de ressemblances à ce roman avec « Congo requiem » (le dernier roman de l'auteur). L'écriture n'est pas exceptionnelle e ...more

Met "De vlucht van de ooievaars" brent Jean-Christophe Gangé een klassieke thriller met een origineel sausje erboven op. Het verhaal beschrijft de zoektocht naar het mysterie van de verdwenen ooievaars vanuit het oogpunt van een ex-student Louis (in de Ik-vorm). Deze zoektocht volgt de trek van de ooievaars doorheen Oost-Europa (Slovakije, Bulgarije) over Israel naar de Centraal Afrikaanse Republiek (CAR). Op elke locatie wordt een tipje van de sluier gelicht naar het mysterie. Het boek leest ze ...more

(I missed my stop a few times when going home from work on the tube - that’s exactly how taken by the book you become when reading “The flight of the storks”
This was my first ever Thriller and I must say it was the best choice to start adoring them with! The whole story was nowhere near pretty - which I am not very used to, but I was completely swallowed by the book.
I highly recommend reading this to everyone.
