Alex (2011)
language
English
3.95 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: Loved the whole book. Makes you feel like you are there with her in the cage as the wood cuts away at her body and the rats and mice are fighting her for survival. Very descriptive with the different chapters and how each killing is explained and makes you want to jump out of you...

review 1: A war is always a business opportunity. In this tragedy, some veterans of the war engage in different kinds of treacherous business in the aftermath of World War I. Of course, some have better means than the others, and the criminal activities have different levels of legitimacy....

review 1: This was the very 1st book I won through the "Goodreads First Reads giveaway". Having already read "Alex" I was excited to be able to continue the story of the detective Verhoeven. It was only when I started reading that I realised that "Irene" is actually the 1st novel in this c...
Robe de marié (2009)
language
English
3.83 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: thriller psicologico assai teso, che trascina subito il lettore in un vortice di eventi- all'inizio abbastanza confusi e oscuri, ma destinati a chiarirsi con il procedere della storia. certo, alcuni passaggi sono abbastanza improbabili e non tutta l'architettura narrativa è credi...
Nos vemos allá arriba (2013)
language
English
4.04 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: Scriitorul francez evocă o lume care își continuă descompunerea morală și fizică inclusiv după război. E vorba de o lume aflată în criză, în care nimic nu mai e inviolabil și sacru, în care chiar și doliul și suferința colectivă devin mijloace facile de exploatare și îmbogățire. ...
Ci rivediamo lassù (2013)
language
English

review 1: I just finished reading this novel in its Spanish translation, entitled [i]Nos vemos allá arriba[/i] and very much enjoyed it. It's a novel about WWI, but by contrast with much WWI literature, it begins with the end of the war, rather than its outset. So, instead of following y...
Tot ziens daarboven (2013)

review 1: Enfin une histoire! J ai adore' ce roman. Je me suis sentie replongee' dans les romans de Maupassant et du 19eme (bien que plus realiste et triste). Les faits sont tres interessants: deux rescapes/blesses' de la 1ere guerre se retrouve insere' dans la vie. Edouard Pericourt est ...
Até nos Vermos lá em Cima (2000)

review 1: There aren't many books I would call "unputdownable", but this is one of them. The author is an old pro, and it shows in the sure-footed way in which he uses proven recipes to maximum effect. For instance, building the story around an odd pair of male characters, one a rich gay b...
Travail soigné (2010)
language
English
3.94 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: I really loved LeMaitre’s book Alex and was keen to read this one, even though I am usually wary of reading a hit ‘new’ author’s back catalogue. This was not surprisingly a bit disappointing, although I did want to know more about the detective’s previous life before Alex. I ran ...
Vestido de novia (2009)
language
English
3.83 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Deze auteur verdient een standbeeld ... het derde boek dat ik van hem gelezen heb en zeker niet het laatste. Dit boek houdt je op het puntje van je stoel ... vanaf de eerste tot de laatste bladzijde. Telkens je denkt dat het verhaal volledig ontrafeld is, komt er een nieuwe wen...
