      Ben kim kopek tam olarak. Ne haddime "yok zor okunuyor yok ot yok bok" diyorum Grange gibi birine. Saygilar efenim.

      Бру-та-лия! Напипах автора, след като случайно попаднах в читанка на романа "Пурпурните реки" (филмът много ми се беше всладил навремето). Реших обаче да започна с първия роман изобщо в кариерата на тоя френски психар, който също е качен в сайта и не съжалих изобщо. Мой тип кни [...]

      Vahşet, kan, cinayetler, kaçakçılık, leylekler Bir film senaryosu gibiydi. Esaslı da film olur hani. Baş karakteri sevemedim. Merak duygusu kitap boyunca sürse de tahmin edilebilir bir olay örgüsü vardı. Okuduğum mekanları ve kişileri de araştırıp yeni şeyler öğrenmiş bulunmaktayım. Bilgilendirici olmadı diyemem ama bir şeyler eksikti sanki

      Mano pažintis su Grange buvo itin sėkminga ir maloni. Prieš porą metų perskaityta jo knyga „Limbų priesaika“ man paliko neišdildomą įspūdį. Joje buvo visko ką aš labiausiai mėgstu: intriga, stiprus detektyvas, siaubo prieskoniai, daug mistikos. Skaitydama tikrai jaučiausi lyg žiūrėčiau kokybišką siaubo filmą apie Vatikano paslaptis. Nuo tos vienos knygos Grange įtraukiau į mintyse kuriamą „skaitysiu visas šio autoriaus knygas“ sąrašą. Kadangi dauguma jo knyg [...]

      Romanın ortalarında aldığım keyif, yazarın mutlak şaşırtmak istediği “son” dan daha fazlaydı. Oldukça sürükleyici, ama bir Lontano veya Sisle gelen yolcu olamaz.

    6. Aurélie on said:

      En résumé : un gros manque de crédibilité et beaucoup trop de détails "gores" inutiles. À titre d'exemple, est-ce qu'une femme dirait, peu de temps après que son frère qu'elle adorait a été assassiné : "Quand le corps a été découvert, il ne restait que l'épiderme du visage, qui ressemblait à un corps mal ajusté. Ses entrailles se déroulaient jusqu'à ses pieds." ? Non ! Elle pourrait dire, la larme à l'oeil, qu'il a été massacré, torturé, mais pas ça ! L'auteur ne sait si [...]

      Olalalaenorm boeiend, het hele verhaal klopt als een bus. Hij is en blijft toch wel één van de 'betere' auteurs in dit genre! Met heeeel veel plezier gelezen!

    8. Monica on said:

      The writing is brilliant full of suspense with twists and turns. Well developed characters, overall an excellent thriller. Recommended without a doubt.

    9. Dmitry Loktev on said:

      Le vol des cigognes est un polar psychologique et cruel. Il s’agit d’une histoire d’un homme d’une trentaine d’années qui part en voyage pour suivre la voie de migration de cigognes. Sur son passage qui porte sur plusieurs pays le personnage principale est amené à résoudre une énigme sanglante. Il s’avère que lors de son trajet à travers plusieurs pays les oiseaux blancs sont utilisés comme des courriers de diamants qui à son tour sont extraits dans les mines d’un pays d [...]

      Ne zaman polisiye tavsiyesi istesem karşıma çıkıyordu Grange. Mutlaka okunması gerektiğinden bahsediliyordu. Leyleklerin Uçuşu da zevkine güvendiğim bi ablam tarafından “okuduğum en iyi Grange romanı” diye etiketlenince başlamaktan başka çarem kalmadı. İyi ki de başlamışım.İlk 30 sayfası “bu ne ya? nasıl sıradan bir polisiye bu” dedikten sonra, tam da bırakmak üzereyken 30. sayfada başlayan sır perdesiyle kendinizden geçiyorsunuz. Antioche‘nin bulduğu b [...]

      Интересен замисъл, но като цяло историята е слаба.Първо, ще започна с описанието на циганите в България - още малко ще излязат като евреите в Германия през 30-те. Па ядяли корени, па събирали билки аре нема нужда, ще кажа.После, идеята да се използват щъркели за трафик на диама [...]

      Τι να πει κανείς για τον Γκρανζέ; Τον γνώρισα απο το "Πορφυρά ποτάμια" και το "Η αυτοκρατορία των λύκων" που τα είδα σε ταινίες. Αποφάσισα να ασχοληθώ μαζί του όταν έπεσε στα χέρια μου το "Ελέησον με" και μαγεύτηκα. Βέβαια τώρα αφού έχω διαβάσει κ "Το πέταγμα των πελαργών" έχω με [...]

      Di grande interesse, davvero una piacevole scoperta questo autore. Sa raccontare, tiene avvinti, non lascia nulla per strada, è fluido anche nella narrazione di parti colte e "tecniche", benché sia soprattutto l'adrenalina che caratterizza una discreta parte di questo romanzo. Affascina la spiegazione del mondo dei rom, della vita nei territori occupati israeliani, della giungla africana con le misere condizioni di vita degli schiavi africani delle miniere, così come la dissertazione sulle ci [...]

    14. Dokusha on said:

      Grangé ist wirklich ein Phänomen. Auf solche Geschichten muß man erst einmal kommen. Es gilt auch bei diesem Roman wieder: nichts für schwache Nerven (wie bei Grangé ja üblich), es geht teilweise wirklich heftig zur Sache. Aber die Story ist ausgezeichnet geschrieben und man taumelt von einem Albtraum in den nächsten. Als man denkt, nun sei die Geschichte weitgehend erledigt und geklärt, ist allerdings erst etwas über die Hälfte des Buches vorbei. Und Grangé schaltet nochmal einen Gan [...]

    16. Atef Attia on said:

      Le premier et pour moi, le meilleur Grangé: Sec, nerveux, tendu, un style fluide et limpide, sans fioritures, une originalité et une imagination folle, le tout hyper bien documenté. Un must du genre!

    17. Esma Tezgi on said:

      Lois ve leyleklerin Avrupa'dan Afrika'ya olan zekice bir kurguyla yazılmış olan macerasını konu alıyor. Sıkılmadan okuyabileceğiniz güzel bir Grangé eseri.Ayrıntılı yorum için;yorumatolyesi/

    18. Çiğdem on said:

      Her ne kadar Grangé'ın kurgusundan zevk almak için kendimi zorlasam da Türkçe çevirisi çok yetersiz ve dikkatsizce olduğu için kendimi kitaba kaptıramadım.

    19. Katrien on said:

      Lang geleden al gelezen, maar het boek is me bijgebleven. Moest er vandaag aan denken toen ik hier ooievaars zag overvliegen op weg naar warmere oorden voor de winter. Een aanrader, dit boek!

    20. Alev on said:

      Except for the end, it was great and ingenious. The end was clumsy.

    21. Bruce on said:

      More than many modern “thrillers,” Jean-Christophe Grangé’s Le vol des cigognes (The Flight of Storks) requires a substantial willing suspension of disbelief, there being many aspects of the narrative that are frankly incroyable. Early examples might include the finding of the mutilated body of the Swiss ornithologist Böhm in the nest of feeding storks high on a tower; the discovery on autopsy that he had had a cardiac transplant that apparently no one knew about; the inexplicable breaki [...]

      Un jeune étudiant se laisse convaincre de participer à une enquête ornithologique. Rapidement, les événements prennent un tour plus dramatique et violent. L'enquête se déplace sur de curieux trafics ayant cours dans le monde entier, bien cachés et aussi bien gardés. Une aventure qui va également conduire le héros à des découvertes personnelles inattendues. J'ai trouvé beaucoup de ressemblances à ce roman avec « Congo requiem » (le dernier roman de l'auteur). L'écriture n'est [...]

      (I missed my stop a few times when going home from work on the tube - that’s exactly how taken by the book you become when reading “The flight of the storks” This was my first ever Thriller and I must say it was the best choice to start adoring them with! The whole story was nowhere near pretty - which I am not very used to, but I was completely swallowed by the book. I highly recommend reading this to everyone.

    26. Kaan Kahraman on said:

      great debut novel! and i think it's still his best novel today. A young man, Lois Antioche is hired by a scientist to follow the seasonal flight routes of storks. at first it seamed like his dream job, traveling around and not doing much really. with but his dream job turns to nightmare quickly. with his employers' sudden death, he is drawn to dark world of smugglers and illegal organ harvesters. and Lois has some past demons to deal with too

    27. Katrin V on said:

      I am sure that much of the material in this book comes from Grangé's journalistic experience. He has probably seen much of the vignette's he includes in this international thriller. His focus is on the dark and evil and it seems unrelenting. Too intense for me. I won't be looking for more from him.

    28. Barış Erdem on said:

      Grange'ın okuduğum kitapları içerisinde en çok sıkıldığım, adapte olamadığım kitabıydı ama bu kitabı da son 150 sayfada kendini gösterdi ve heyecan yaşattı. Favori kitaplarımdan olmasa da yine de güzeldi.

    29. Leschelmis on said:

      A : scénario intéressant. Un peu long a démarrer mais la 2eme partie est vraiment bien

    30. Oleg on said:

      Типичный Гранже: расчлененка, маньяк-садист, могущественные тайные организации и главный герой, невероятным образом преодолевающий все и вся.
