HASH(0x95840630) étoiles sur 5 Disturbing look at another world 7 avril 2012
Par Damaskcat - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Superintendent Gently is called in to look at a case of a biker who has died in a crash which may have been an accident but could have been the result of malice aforethought. Gently has to get to grips with a whole new world and a new language which the author brings vividly to life. Gradually he is almost accepted by the bikers almost as one of them because he seems to understand what they're talking about.

There are some marvellous scenes in this book which show another side to Gently himself and show how sheer speed can affect people and make them do things for the adrenaline rush that they would not normally do. When the local force's chief suspect vanishes apparently without trace Gently has to try and work out what is really going on and who is masterminding the activities of the bikers.

I found this book quite disturbing and very dark in places. The way people can be manipulated by others is very well done and I could almost feel the menacing atmosphere while I was reading. If you haven't tried the Gently series because you think it might be too `cosy' then give this book a try as it is far from cosy. There are some very dark undercurrents in the book which are well handled. Throughout the book Gently is his usual imperturbable self, watching and waiting for some small detail to reveal the identity of the murderer.

HASH(0x95840684) étoiles sur 5 If you can take a bit of slang, you will greatly enjoy the story 25 janvier 2015
Par Kent Price - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is the ninth book of Alan Hunter's "Inspector Gently" series of which there are 24 available on the Kindle. The writing is a combination of styles including a motorcycle beatnik train of thought as illustrated by this quote from the last chapter (which describes Gently's arrival in town).

"So this big-shot screw came down from the Smoke, started making with the action like he could figure the whole deal. There were some sticks going about, he latched hard on them, man. Threw a curve they were the reason of Johnny Lister taking off. First he hung up Sid Bixley, wild keen he was on Sid. But Sid was too good for him, he knew the jazz to hand screws. Then this crazy big-shot goes for Dicky, wild way-out Dicky Deeming, the mostest guy who ever cooled it on a ton plus action . . ."

The story is typical Allan Hunter and moves right along. If you can take a bit of slang, you will greatly enjoy the story as I did.

I got hooked on this series only recently, after vaguely wondering what the show I'd been watching was like in print. Hunter is a sure and masterful manipulator of English prose, and can reliably deliver a rich and complex plot without a sense of hurry, but also without all the dilatory detail of a PD James or the curt functionality of Doyle.

This book, however, represents a bit of a departure. It's overall memory for me is one of confusion. The movement he's exploring is one that is alien to me. He has rendered the dialogue and psychic landscape of this fringe group and I suppose I have to take it on trust that he's done it accurately.

Long, italicised discursions presuming to enter the minds of an 'everyman' of the type were an unexpected and not altogether welcome innovation in this particular volume.

Having said all that, though, I think most of my objections to this book can be put down to resistance to change. This is a solid effort, well worthy of Hunter and enjoyable, despite all my carping little objections.

HASH(0x95840858) étoiles sur 5 Of its time, for its time 6 avril 2013

This one doesn't really travel into the new millennium, but it was a recognisable country to one who narrowly missed being a part of the time. (Absolutely missed the place, but that I can fix!) hunter tries to be "hip" and it doesn't come off, but I still think there is value in reading about a time and place through the literature produced in that time and place.
