Comparons, par simple curiosité, le nombre de pages de la traduction française (380) et celui de la version originale (509). Certes, la version française est imprimée en caractères légèrement plus petits mais ... Au début, j'avais commencé à lire tous les livres de cet auteur en français puis je les ai relus en anglais petit à petit puisqu'ils sont maintenant disponibles. Or, la version française laisse sur sa faim, la langue est moins aboutie et j'ai toujours l'impression qu'il en manque un bout. Une erreur de mes sens abusés ?

HASH(0x8d30a72c) étoiles sur 5 a very clever twist on a proven theme... 11 février 2002
Par lazza - Publié sur
Format: Poche
Firstly, readers of this review who have not read any of Saylor's novels should proceed directly to 'Roman Blood', the first of the Gordianus mystery series (set in ancient Rome). Saylor's books are best read in sequence in order to capture the essence of its private eye hero (Gordianus the finder).
Unlike the other Gordianus novels, The Venus Throw is a mystery involving murder and intrique close to and in (!) the Gordianus household. An old Egyptian friend of Gordianus is murdered and, of course, Gordianus is hired to find the killer. The outcome is very surprising, and all along we are entertained by Saylor's excellent prose. And true to form, Saylor also sprinkles in copious sauciness (orgies, boys behaving badly, etc) without being crude.
Bottom line: one of the best of a fine historical mystery series. Highly recommended.

HASH(0x8d30a780) étoiles sur 5 Gordianus is finding out he doesn't know very much in Rome 27 octobre 2002
Par TammyJo Eckhart - Publié sur
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
I've liked Saylor's books in the past because of two principle reasons: the mystery is solved in a plausible way for that period and the dynamics of the institution of slavery are played out well. In the past, Gordianus is dealing with political struggles and economic gains but in this book something is tackled: the unequal dynamic between the .... Almost everything Gordianus thinks he knows about women is challenged and thrown out in this one book. This is where Saylor himself is stepping out of the "historical knowns" and stepping into spectulation. However, the spectulation is also reasonable given what is know about gender, ... and ... dynamics for the late Roman Republic. Also this is a very urban and family focused book, reflecting again the increasingly personal nature of the arguable decay in politics and society during this time. This book is more explicit so if the directness of Saylor's writing has been uncomfortable for you in the past, be forewarned; for those of us who could handle even more expliciteness, its a bit better.

HASH(0x8d30aa5c) étoiles sur 5 Murder Follows Roman Gumshoe to the Shores of Baie... 20 août 2001
Par E. Rothstein - Publié sur
Format: Poche
(OOPS - SORRY, THIS ACTUALLY REFERS TO "ARMS OF NEMESIS" - MY BAD...) O.k., I'll admit it: I love Gordianus the Finder. Forget Marcus Didius Falco (of Lindsay Davis fame), Gordianus is the only man in Rome for me. Pegged as a "finder", Gordianus ferrets out the truth about scandals, mysteries, murders and more. In this lively tale set against the Spartacan slave revolt, the lives of 100 slaves hang in the balance while Gordianus tries to untangle a gordian knot of a murder. The master of the house is murdered, and two slaves are implicated. Every slave in the household will be put to death in the gladiator's ring unless Gordianus finds out the real truth. I love that Saylor takes Gordianus out of Rome, into the pleasure villas of the idle Roman rich, and gives us a tantalizing glimpse into yet another facet of Roman life. All of Saylor's novels are gorgeously researched, and the writing crackles with humor and menace in equal measures. Beware: once bitten by the Gordianus bug, you'll be hooked for life...

HASH(0x8d30af84) étoiles sur 5 Feminine mystery in Ancient Rome 10 mai 2001
Par Karina A Suarez - Publié sur
Format: Poche
Even though I haven't found this book to be remarkable from the point of view that would classify it as a mystery, I must say it does have a certain seduction, a certain allure, that makes it kind of irresistible to the reader, who will not want to put it down until its very end. This such end is quite a revelation as well as a paradox. Gordianus' perspective of his roman world is changed dramatically when he first discovers that his old tutor not only wasn't a man of virtue, he was a man of a great many vices, vices that included sexual abuse and depravity. The second shock comes with the identity of the murderer (not even Gordianus could have imagined this one).
All in all, what really made this book enthralling and very dear to me is the small tribute it pays to the women of Rome. For the first time in Saylor's writing, we are invited into the secret world of the roman woman, her desires, her insecurities and her atrocities as well. I must say that since reading this book I also crave silk from Cos for my own wardrobe.
In a world where women had almost no voice at all, where they were only considered their husband's or master's property; we still see the indelible mark women leave wherever they are present, in every step of their way. Even if this is the only message in the book, it is quite and imposing one.

HASH(0x8d30af9c) étoiles sur 5 Great book 22 février 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Poche
Saylor's work is, as always, excellent. This one focusses on the power struggles of Rome's elite in the late Republic...and on how the various loves and lusts in that elite cause nasty thingsto happen. In addition to providing an anecdote about pointing fingers and guilt that no reader will soon forget, this book really brings Rome to life...and reminds the reader that some things are eternal.
