    ePUB academics20193.co ´ Ratking eBook è ratking epub, Ratking PDFOverall I enjoyed this mystery police procedural but when I finished the novel I had the feeling that I should have enjoyed it Thought the premise of the story well presented but had the overall impression that it wasn't as concisely written as I wanted to read Aurelio Zen was an interesting character he was obviously intelligent and understood the machinations and deviousness involved in running a police investigation that he really wasn't meant to solve A loner taking on the establishmentLoved the Italian setting and not uite knowing with absolute certainty who the bad guys wereGreat atmosphere another from The Guardian 1000 book list

    ePUB academics20193.co ´ Ratking eBook è ratking epub, Ratking PDFMy first encounter with Golden Dagger Award winning author Michael Dibdin's Aurelio Zen Series was watching PBS Masterpiece Mystery one Sunday night The onscreen Aurelio is somewhat younger and darker than the one in RATKING Here we are introduced to this anti hero and taste the late Dibdin’s irony and black humour in Zen’s persona that the telecast so aptly captures As with new introductions the reader isn’t sure of Zen His opening scene shows us an indifferent policeman Aurelio sits by idly during a robbery on a train to Rome all the while his fellow compartment companions berate him for his inaction Rather than defending himself he debarks and calls the local authorities to handle the situation Is our protagonist corrupt or inept? The answer is much complex; Aurelio Zen isn’t an active inspector because of a failed kidnapping investigation years earlier Zen is also an outsider He is Venetian the wrong part of Italy for many in the police force and the Judiciary He eve

    ePUB academics20193.co ´ Ratking eBook è ratking epub, Ratking PDFLike many of the reviews on this book I turned to this book mostly after learning there was a Masterpiece Mystery series coming out based on these books And like many of the others I find myself comparing Rufus Seawell's Zen with the character Dibdin created That's almost always a mistake I can't say that I don't like Dibdin's Zen I think I prefer the version written for Masterpiece Dibdin's Zen is a restless man in his 50s struggling with the fading of a career that hasn't fulfilled his plans He also deals with a mother who is either losing her memory or her grip on reality but this is so much a part of his everyday life he doesn't seem to struggle with this as much as float above itThe Masterpiece version is a good and decent man who is regarded as be

    ePUB academics20193.co ´ Ratking eBook è ratking epub, Ratking PDFThe first Aurelio Zen novel as far as I am aware A wonderful read that really does evoke Italy in some beautifully turned prose Dibdin's plots are always carefully put together and you are kept guessing a lot in this book What a ratking actually is is a wonderful metaphor for what happens in this book This and Cosi Fan Tutti are the best of this series

    ePUB academics20193.co ´ Ratking eBook è ratking epub, Ratking PDFI got this book because I really liked the show And as it was cancelled way to early I was hoping to get even from the booksI don't often say this but the book was not betterIt's obviously unfair blaming a book because it wasn't like a TV show it has inspired but I was just so disappointed Gone was the fun the witty smart and sexy detective the charming Italian stuff Instead we got dark moody corrupt and gritty Zen is in his 50s in the book unsure of himself disillusioned and at times close to a break down I've really had my fill of that kind of broken dete

    ePUB academics20193.co ´ Ratking eBook è ratking epub, Ratking PDFI have no idea why anybody would compare Dibdin with Chandler he is wordy where Chandler is minimalist verging on sentimental where Chandler is cynical Could two characters be different than Zen and Marlowe?
