5.0 von 5 Sternen Would you expect less from a true Southern writer? 7. Oktober 1998
Format:Taschenbuch
James Lee Burke can say in a paragraph what many writers could say in a sentence. With Burke it just flows with descriptions that put you in the place and time of his characters. This isn't newspaper writing. You get the whole experience not a snippet. I have read all of Burke's work and I think it is a shame that he is relegated to the genre of mystery. His work is the quality of any great Southern writer. Black Cherry Blues is a great book. Like all Burke novels it makes you start searching for his next book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The first is one of the best 12. Mai 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
Having read James Lee Burke's entire Dave Robicheaux series, I have to say that this novel, which introduced the flawed ex-cop with the mystical bent, is still one of the best. There are several things about this book that hit me as unique and made me want to return every time Burke served up another helping; the first is that Burke's ability with description and locale are unparalled, the second is the depth of character he was able to give Robicheaux by focusing on his personal demons (drink, violence and inner torment from loss and regret), and third is the 'mystical' element that informs each book - sometimes more than others - and allows the plot to be advanced by such devices as messages in dreams and intimations of a 'higher power.' Since Burke himself is a recovering alcoholic he is able to make this side of Dave's life quite real and moving.
This book (which won the Edgar Award in 1990) differs from later ones in the series in that Dave strays far afield from the rural Louisiana coast setting readers normally associate with him. But he is also, in the beginning, a more complex and interesting character. As the series progresses he becomes stiffer and more self righteous. Here he is unsure of himself and trying to come to grips with a life that has him on the ropes.
This is some of Burke's best writing and I would highly recommend it to mystery fans who have never tasted this rich Louisiana stew. It is unique and memorable.

I've read about half of Burke's Robicheaux novels, in no particular order, and I consider it one of the better ones in the series. The simple, powerful eloquence of Burke's writing is a beautiful thing to behold. He truly posesses a gift for metaphorical description, the likes of which have not been seen since Raymond Chandler's Phillip Marlowe spun his morality plays of Los Angeles in the 1930's and 40's. The strength of the books in general are the emphasis on the thoughts and feelings of the main character, with the action of the story sometimes taking a back seat. I found myself looking forward to these brief respites throughout the novel. For example, I found the insight by Robicheaux that we all essentially become the reflection we see of our selves in other peoples eyes to be particularly touching and often quite true. The only criticism I really had was sometimes things got a little too metaphysicial and "otherworldly", case in point being how the dead woman told him in a dream about where to look for buried murder victims. There was in my mind a similar weakness in the "In the Electric Mist With Confederate Dead", but I'll save my thoughts on that for another review.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Hard core Robicheaux! 21. Juni 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
James Lee Burke has written a wonderful novel in this one. The characters are tough and full of vitality. As always his locations are so well portrayed you feel,see, taste and smell the details. Robicheaux, the ex-cop is coping with the murder of his wife, his service in Vietnam, being a recovering alcoholic, he is being blamed for a murder and he fears for the life of his adopted daughter. He is on the run from New Orleans to beautiful Montana. This is a wonderful book that surprises you with Robicheaux's philosophy. "...because I believe that God is not limited by time and space as we are, I believe that perhaps he can influence the past....and I begin to dwell on the unbearable suffering that people probably experienced before their deaths,I ask God to retroactively relieve their pain, to be with them in mind and body, to numb their senses, to cool whatever flame licked at their eyes in their final moments." James Lee Burke can stun you with his craft. This is a must read!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent story and characters 22. Mai 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
Of all James Lee Burke's wonderful books, this was his first commercial success and remains his best single novel. It is a gritty mystery set in Louisiana which introduces us to Dave Robicheaux, a flawed but intelligent and good-hearted lead character.
Burke is a wonderful writer for two main reasons. First, his characters are well-written; they are memorable, realistic, and intriguing. Their dialogue absolutely CRACKLES.
Secondly, no reader can be unaffected by his descriptions- poetic even in the most grisly scenes. Seeing these scenes through Robicheaux's eyes, scenes as well-crafted as only Burke can do, we realize the depth and beauty of Robicheaux's mind.
Black Cherry Blues is less a Mystery Novel and more a Literary Work, an ideal way to spend an evening.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Perfect moods, imperfect hero... 17. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
These are literally books you have to finish and hard to put down. JLB's descriptive powers are awsome. I am trying to catch up on his earlier works now in print. One character trait seems to run through all of them. The main characters are compelled to act in ways that are rarely in their ultimate best interests and often threaten both them and all those around them. Dave Robicheaux's inability to halt himself in the pursuit of "honor" is an interesting take on the alcoholic's egocentrism. I find myself admiring him and, at the same time, hating him for his relentless attmpts to maintain his dignity and right all wrongs, whatever the cost. I am fascinated by JLB's ability to make every scene real in my mind. There aren't many authors who can create atmosphere like Burke.

This novel has a stronger plot than other Burke novels. But it is also weaker in its character depictions and settings. Lesen Sie weiter...

Although overly abridged, the reader does such a good job of capturing the syntax of the prose the story is actually enhanced.
