Produktbeschreibungen

Kurzbeschreibung

Spenser is..."The sassiest, funniest, most-enjoyable-to-read-about private eye around today...the legitimate heir to the Hammett-Chandler-Macdonald tradition." --The Cincinnati Post

Spenser is..."Tougher, stronger, better educated, and far more amusing than Sam Spade, Phil Marlowe, or Lewis Archer...Spenser gives the connoisseur of that rare combination of good detective fiction and good literature a chance to indulge himself." --The Boston Globe

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ein poetischer Haudraufundschluß 10. Februar 2004
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Dies ist mein erster Spenser und mir war von der ersten Seite an klar, daß ich sie nun alle lesen werde. Witzig und geradlinig geschrieben, ohne umständlichen Schnickschnack, aber dafür mit viel Wärme, Brutalität und ein paar unerwarteten Zitaten fürs Poesie-Album. Dies ist kein Widerspruch, sondern eben Spenser. Wenn alle Krimis mit Spenser so gut sind wie dieser, dann liegen wunderbare Zeiten vor mir.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Spenser's at odds. 27. Juli 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
And with a lesbian feminist, no less. In no other novel does Spencer's code of ethics get tested than it does here. This was one of the first Spenser novels I ever read and it remains one of my favorites. It goes a long way towards explaining who Spenser is and his relationship with Hawk. Although it's one of Parker's shortest novels, it's also one of his best.

2.0 von 5 Sternen such a boring book! 11. Juni 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
I don't understand why Robert Parker spent 200 pages for this book, you can guess who kidnapped Rachel right from the middle of the book at least! Plot is horrible, book consists of nothing but sexist dialogues between Spenser and Rachel. This book is one of the most terrible in Spenser series

Von Chrissi
Format:Taschenbuch
Well, the 6th book in the Spenser series is probably the so far weakest one. It really takes some time until the story is under way and gains momentum towards the end. But most of the first half of the book it is just slow moving and lives from the sometimes funny dialogues between a macho (guess who...) and a lesbian feminist (guess again).

The story is more or less a political discussion but less an entertaining crime story. So, if you like that diversion: go for it. Otherwise, if you are only looking for a crime story: you may skip this one.

5.0 von 5 Sternen War Between The Sexes 21. Juli 2006
Von Mel Odom - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Take one testosterone-laden private eye with and admirable world view but who knows that his code of honor is the backbone of everything he believes in (Spenser). Add one fiesty lesbian feminist out to point out the faults and foibles of a male-dominated society (Rachel Wallace). Shake vigorously to mix the two together so they become combatants. Season with vicious hired gunmen. It all adds up to one of the most delicious dishes ever served by Robert B. Parker.

Hired by a book publisher to protect Rachel Wallace, one of their hottest properties, Spenser finds himself at odds again and again with the woman he's supposed to take care of. Both of them have their own ways of doing things, and both are intractable. Eventually their differences outweigh the reasons they should stay together and Spenser gets fired. However, someone kidnaps Rachel Wallace and Boston's toughest private eye makes things personal when he goes looking for her. Through the bluebloods and the hired street muscle, through a snowstorm that shuts the city down, Spenser goes on the hunt, mowing over everyone that gets in his path.

Robert B. Parker is the author of the Spenser novels, the Jesse Stone novels and the Sunny Randall novels as well as others.

This book, along with EARLY AUTUMN and MORTAL STAKES, is the best to define Spenser's character and Robert B. Parker's thoughts on the world and his place in it. In the course of this short novel, Parker explores the differences between the male and female of the human species, and the struggle that each undertakes to understand the other. This isn't a societal diatribe. It's a great novel that's larger than the sum of its parts. Not only does the suspenseful action and great dialogue keep a reader turning pages, but it serves up a healthy does of thought-provoking commentary as well.

Readers who have never read a Spenser novel before would find this a good starting place. This is one of the foundation novels that spins completely out of the character, up against others and up against the world. Readers looking for a a great private eye novel with heart need to look no farther.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Exquisite! 17. Juni 1999
Von Anna K. Anderson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Spencer is truly himself here. He is hired to protect a lesbian author who is a feminist activist. Parker creates her to be a warm person if a bit prickly. This remarkable story is really more about what Heterosexual Spencer is and how he feels about this lesbian person (and oh, by the way, Susan is there and contributing to both solutions) how she must come to realize that even though he is everything she feels she must fight against, she grudgingly comes to respect and, yes, admire Spencer. It sounds hokey, and the lesbian angle is not a turn on either. But trust me, this book is special. I have come across it late, this being 1999, but it is truly a remarkable book. You cannot read it without feeling good.

3.0 von 5 Sternen true blue 19. März 2004
Von Simon Crowe - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
In LOOKING FOR RACHEL WALLACE, Spenser is hired to bodyguard the title character, an outspoken lesbian author. Ms. Wallace and Spenser don't see eye to eye, and after she fires him, she gets kidnapped. Spenser spends the rest of the book looking for her.
I've read almost all of these books, and this one contains I think the best description of Spenser's personality,when Susan compares him to Sir Gawain. There's some comedy in the early scenes with the juxtaposition of Spenser and Rachel, but Rachel is characterized a little broadly, humorless and cranky. Spenser figures out the mystery pretty early on and spends the rest of the book trying to find Rachel. This is worth a couple of hours of your time on a Saturday afternoon.

5.0 von 5 Sternen SPENSERS BEST 22. September 2002
Von Daniel Byrd - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Aside from EARLY AUTUMN, there is no question that this is Parkers best novel. It's funny, fast, lots of action, and a big ending. I read all of Parkers Spenser novels in a row, twice, about six years ago, and I've gone back and re-read this one a few more times.
Parkers short 200 page books are like movies, as you can have a bad day, come home, have a few beers and plow through a book in one evening. This is the one that always lifts my spirits.

There stirred behind her face a sense of life and purpose and mirth and caring that made her seem to be in motion even as she was still. There was a kind of rhythm to her, even in motionless repose. &quote;
