    1. THE BONE KEEPERChiss se la ghiotta e preziosa valigetta dell indimenticabile Paul Osborne riuscirebbe a placare la febbre di Caryl Ferey Ferey che inizia i suoi romanzi in progressione, costruendo personaggi e intrecci pi che apprezzabili, e poi all incirca verso la met vira verso il grand guignol, di solito mancando il bersaglio non lo splatter, quello sempre assicurato Tatuaggio maori.E invece questa volta tutto giustificato, spiegato, motivato, si segue il crescendo, si cade dentro, si divent [...]




    2. Utu is not a cozy, sugar coated read, F rey weaves such a compelling web of stories that I could not put this book down Utu transported me to New Zealand with such reality, I twice missed my subway stop when reading it on the treain I am impressed by F rey s writings on Maori culture and his observations of post colonialism in New Zealand Characters are framed as symbolic extensions of the past, where the past, history and conflict define the course of present day interactions between characters [...]


    3. A vile central character, huge amounts of often gore drenched violence and sexual violence in buckets, ensure that this is not going to suit every reader However if you can get through this then you are in for a real treat The writing is harsh and brutal but deeply compelling and often quite beautiful The capture of conflict within Maori culture is fascinating and well drawn, this is one that will draw you into it s hideous crime fest and keep you reading The only annoying thing about it is that [...]



    4. I enjoyed the history And this was a great cop story BUT I was a little turned off by the gratuitous sex and violence It went beyond what was necessary Not for the weak hearted.



    5. J ai ador Utu alors que Haka ne m avait vraiment pas plu malgr une criture magnifique et inventive Utu est un polar beaucoup plus abouti, les personnages sont r ellement attachants et consistants, l intrigue est solide et sophistiqu e.Je me suis quand m me dit que F rey est le seul auteur qui tue davantage de personnages que George R R Martin


    6. Ferey, grand voyageurPunto di forza dei polizieschi di Caryl F rey, definito Grand Voyageur nel suo profilo biografico, l ambientazione, curatissima sia nella descrizione dei luoghi per lo pi esotici in cui ci trasportano le sue storie, sia per l approfondita conoscenza delle popolazioni, delle usanze, delle tensioni sociali e razziali che le caratterizzano Questo si nota bene in Zulu , thriller sudafricano che la sua opera pi nota, in questo Utu a location neozelandese e immagino, perch ancora [...]


    7. Utu means revenge in the Maori language and revenge is certainly at the crux of this police procedural by French novelist Caryl F rey When disgraced New Zealand detective Paul Osborne self medicating on booze and drugs in Sydney, Australia learns that Jack Fitzgerald, his only friend in the Auckland force, has committed suicide in the middle of an investigation involving the Maori community, he agrees to return home to pick up where his friend left off A specialist in Maori culture, Osborne does [...]


    8. Utu est un livre tonnant prendre au sens premier du terme il n est pas extraordinaire, il est surprenant L auteur mise, de prime abord, sur l exotisme les d tectives de l histoire tombent les chapeaux mous et les impers pour les lunettes de soleil et les maillots de bain, puisque l intrigue se d roule en Nouvelle Z lande L un des anciens coll gues de Paul Osborne, flic maudit, vient le r cup rer alors qu il vomit tout son saoul sur les plages australiennes son ancien ami et coll gue, Fitzgerald, [...]


    9. I just can t rate this book It is gratuitously violent, and stretches credibility to the breaking point There is a detailed description of a drug fueled, pan sexual sadistic orgy at a swingers club, and a variety of graphic killing and mutilation scenes For starters Yet bits of the writing are very strong and the Maori stuff is interesting Paul Osborne, the Auckland police lieutenant protagonist, ingests so much alcohol and so many substances, and has so many people trying to do him serious bodi [...]


    10. what a repulsive main character which is not always a bad thing sometimes i like them better for not being beautiful, rich, super zippy in the IQ department, and always on the correct moral side but for all that to work, they have to be right somewhere in their twisted hearts.i don t know, maybe this guy is i didn t finish the book i got to a line in which the main character is musing on the inadequacy of a woman s breasts, and i gave up, what, should she have apologized said, i m so sorry, i fa [...]


    11. I read about a third of this, which was enough to know it was not worth finishing I thought I would like it since I find Maori culture and New Zealand fascinating The main character here, an irredeemable, hard boiled ass of a detective named Osborne is supposed to be an expert on native culture, working on solving a complicated mystery involving a serial killer and the Maori However, through the first 160 pages, plot is thin on the ground here, and what minimal threads of it exist are not well s [...]



    12. Une claquasse du m me acabit que celle prise avec Haka.Un antih ros qui clate toutes les limites dans sa violence sans faire de distinction, pharmacie ambulante, occasionnellement conscient et coh rent, suivant le fil unique maintenant sa vie mis rable une femme trop souvent antagonis e par le manque de compr hension de sa culture.Utu Vengeance.Caryl F rey creuse un peu plus pour nous la culture maorie, et n o z landaise par la m me occasion, qu il nous pr sentait dans Haka Fascinant, douloureux [...]


    13. Ferey is certainly not everyone s taste, though if you looking for very, very dark hard boiled police procedurals that go to places you cannot even imagine nor want to , he is your guy UTU, set in New Zealand, is unbelievably bleak, dark, and hits you in the stomach every chance it gets The plots gets a little too telenovela by the end and what an ending it is but everything leading up to it seems plausible And dark And violent And probably realistic.Ultimately I love Ferey, though am a bit wary [...]


    14. Forse perch non amo i thriller, forse perch non mi piace leggere di violenza e droga forse perch nel mio cuore associo la Nuova Zelanda a tutt altro, ma questo libro proprio non mi piaciuto La trama sa essere avvincente, ma infarcita di clich e luoghi comuni, a partire dal poco credibile poliziotto eroico tormentato d a.Tra tutto, comunque, non l ho mollato a met , come avrei fatto in un altro momento, perch mi andava una lettura poco impegnativa e perch la questione maori viene trattata con cog [...]


    15. Paul Osbourne is an asshole He s an alcoholic, a drug abuser, and a cop When Paul s only friend a sort of mentor as well as a cop winds up dead, seemingly by his own hand, Paul is dragged back to New Zealand to follow up on a mysterious case In the process, Paul gets shit faced by choice and by misfortune while somehow managing to get the job done As the facts begin to come to light, bodies pile up, until it seems that everyone, innocent or guilty, is destroyed in the wake.I think this book is [...]


    16. This was brutal yet immensely satisfying The author didn t cheat, didn t waver The plot came to the logical, violent conclusion The hero of the tale is this nihilistic, doped up, violent, erratic, burnt out cop with a death wish It s a dark tale of corrupt civil servants, murders and destruction Utu is the Maori word for vengeance Vengeance with no hope, no exit I m really glad I read it It s not an easy read but a worthy one.


    17. Utu , et sa premi re partie Haka , font partie des meilleurs polar que j ai lus r cemment Et Utu quelle suite Absolument rien de conventionnel, on est loin des sequel habituel Un petit coup d oeil sur la culture maorie, une descente en enfer en compagnie d un personnage pas particuli rement sympathique, mais impossible quitter.Un coup de coeur.


    18. This has a great sense of place and history and the plot was very complex and convoluted which I like and then it was very nicely tied together at the end The only quibble I had was that the protag is one of those energizer bunny types that keeps going when you know in real life he would be flat on his backwould that stop me from reading the others way


    19. LOVED this book whenever I m reading a book and it plays out visually, like a movie, in my head, that means I m riveted Great story, powerful characters, and beautifully written Wish Haka was in English so I could read it Great author


    20. Not as powerful as Zulu by the same author still compelling reading in many ways There s something a little stale about some of the grotesquerie in this novel it feels borrowed from Ellroy instead of authentically its own thing as in Zulu.


    21. I have read this book just after Zulu which I found outstanding This one was quite disappointing Too long Too many descriptions Too dark much too dark So pessimistic I found difficult to finish it.


    22. Beuh Pas aim La chute dans l alcool, la d testation de soi et la d pravation d un flic qui ne partait d j pas de tr s haut Avec quelques sc nes int ressantes sur les maoris vus de l int rieur.
