5.0 von 5 Sternen Außergewöhnlich außergewöhnlich. 13. Juli 2006
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Dieser James-Bond-Roman ist eine Besonderheit. Zum einen ist er der erste, der nicht ins Deutsche übersetzt wurde, zum anderen weicht John Gardner hier völlig von der Vorlage aller anderen Romane ab. Er selbst bezeichnet dieses Buch als "Experiment" - ein Fehlschlag augenscheinlich, denn die Verkaufszahlen gingen zurück. Da sich das Buch streckenweise mit Tatsachen beschäftigt (Massentötungen) ist es außergewöhnlich für die sonst so phantasiegeprägten 007-Bücher.

Eine Übersetzung dieses Gardner-Werks würde zwar nicht die erhofften Einnahmen für einen Verlag bringen, doch die deutschsprachigen Bond-Fans würden sich mit Sicherheit auf diesen verschollenen Stoff stürzen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Gardner's finest 30. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Amazing! THE MAN FROM BARBAROSSA is full of wild action-packed stunts and action. James Bond is forced to fight against a secret group called The Scales of Justice who want to control Russia and wish to film an legal trial of a spy. If you're searching for thrills, this is the book for you. It is fulled of action, and the besat part is when James Bond fights the men in the house. Disagree with the one and two stars and go for the five, You will be happy with results if you read John Gardner's best. Others best include the action-fulled ICEBREAKER, NO DWEALKS MR BOND and COLD FALL and BROKEN CLAWS.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The Man From Barbarossa 5. Mai 2011
Von Ross Sidor - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
John Gardner's Bond novels received pretty mixed reactions from Bond fans, and I can understand people's disappointment if they read his books expecting a big adventure like the Bond movies or the original Fleming novels. The majority of Gardner's novels don't follow the standard Bond formula. Rather than have Bond investigate some billionaire whose planning something evil, Gardner frequently has Bond embroiled in complex espionage plots and pitted against assorted communist agents and terrorists. And instead of describing food and locations in minute detail, Gardner gives details of real-life intelligence agencies, weapons, tradecraft, and the political climate of the time.

All of these elements are especially evident in The Man From Barbarossa. Bond is reluctantly assigned to an operation run by the KGB, along with Israeli and French agents. Posing as a camera crew set to film a mock war crimes trial, their mission is to infiltrate of the high echelons of the Scales of Justice, an underground group responsible for spreading a wave of terrorism across the crumbling Soviet Union. Of course, not is all as it seems, and Bond unravels a plot by a rogue Russian general to seize power in the Kremlin and supply Iraq with nuclear weapons on the eve of the First Persian Gulf War, as well as wipe out Washington, DC. Along the way, Bond confronts traitors on his team and a battalion of Russian spetsnaz.

There's very little action in this book, and it all comes at the end of the book. But Gardner still weaves a complex and intriguing plot that slowly unravels and reveals itself through the three hundred pages. While holding the reader's attention, you'll also never really be quite sure where the story is going next and will keep turning the pages to find out what happens next.

On the downside, the characters are not particularly well drawn out. The problem is that there are probably too many characters crammed into too small a book. Most characters simply aren't given enough time to develop or stand out. This is due mostly to the structure of the story. characters come in for a section of the book, then disappear for a large chunk of it, before being re-introduced.

Don't read this book if you're expecting an action-packed James Bond adventure. You will be disappointed. However, if you want a complex Cold War espionage/political thriller (which happens to have a character named James Bond) along the lines of Craig Thomas, then you can do a lot worse than The Man From Barbarossa. Icebreaker; No Deals, Mr Bond; Win, Loose, or Die; and Death is Forever, also by John Gardner, are also worth checking out if you like that type of thing. For more traditional Bond stories, stick to License Renewed and For Special Services.

2.0 von 5 Sternen This book is licenced to bore. 30. Dezember 1998
Von Argo88@aol.com - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Reading this book was a long haul. There wasn't much action until the last 50 pages or so. I think this tale would have been better served as a short story. As a novel, there was a lot of unnessessary padding in order to streach it out to 300 pages. The villian was introduced late in the game and was a bit underdeveloped. A plot thread that was introduced at the last few pages would have made a better book that the plot Gardner presented. I did find it interesting that the story was tied to the Persian Gulf War. It was neat to learn what Bond was up to at that time. Gardner has done better with OO7. This is a book that will be read by compleatists who must read every Bond book. Everyone else can skip it.
4.0 von 5 Sternen A nice little espionage tale... 2. Mai 1998
Von N. P. Stathoulopoulos - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Following the very disappointing BROKENCLAW, here Gardner gives us a different Bond story--one with very little action, lots of plot, and yet, a real page turner. This is certainly one of the most political Bond stories, and it is concerned with issues in the headlines at the moment (or from 1991), namely the Gulf War and also the shaky state of the former Soviet Union. The story concerns a free-lance terrorist group--The Scales of Justice--demanding the trial of a former Nazi SS officer largely responsible for a massacre of Russian Jews in Barbarossa during WWII. They claim to have the real man, but meanwhile the French Secret Service have captured another man whom they believe is the criminal. An agent of Mossad--the Israeli Secret Service, a Russian KGB official, James Bond, the French Secret Service, and various other spies all engage in a plot to unravel The Scales of Justice. What they uncover is an ambitious Russian general with plans to sabotage the crisis in the Gulf War by sending a nuclear strike among other things to the United States. There is a lot of plot and very little action--pretty much all in the next to last chapter or so. And yet it is very carefully laid out by Gardner, who doesn't give us an unbelievable love story nor a completely ridiculous ending as he did in the preceding clinker BROKENCLAW. In BARBAROSSA Bond finds himself confused about his role in the mission, and he also finds that a number of the people around him are not who they seem. One of the best elements is the way Gardner weaves an exciting tale involving elements from real-life modern stories and situations in the world--the Gulf crisis and impending war, the state of post-Communist Russia and quests for power. There are a number of intriguing characters and some great scenes, such as M receiving the news that 007 has been killed. Bond is not the central figure all of the time--he finds himself neck-deep in a complicated web of intrigue. The writing is certianly an improvement over BROKENCLAW, as! is Bond's relationships with the opposite sex here. Some may be disappointed by the greater presence of story and by the fact that action takes a backseat, but give BARBAROSSA a chance indeed. It is very well written, tightly plotted, and frankly very exciting. Do not disparage the name Gardner when it comes to Bond. Although this is more of a solid thriller and less of your typical BOND story, it is a welcome addition to the canon.
