    Ero indecisa se sarebbe stato un 4 1/2☆ o un 5☆. Ma alla fine ho optato per il 5☆ come gli altri. Non nascondo che all'inizio mi ha fatto dannare nel chiedermi chi era Lupin. Ma poi SPOILER eccolo che arriva solo nella seconda parte e non era nessuno dei presenti. FINE SPOILER Tuttavia la lettura è stata piacevole quindi non me la sento di dare un voto minore al libro.

    Χρησιμοποιώντας ένα στυλ γλαφυρό και γεμάτο ζωντάνια ο Morris Leblanc χειρίζεται με εξαιρετική επιδεξιότητα τις ίντριγκες που επιβάλλει το συγκεκριμένο λογοτεχνικό είδος. Προικίζει τον ήρωά του με έναν αέρα μυστηρίου και πανουργίας στοιχείο ικανό να κρατήσει αμείωτο το ενδιαφέρον.

    You know, I do not often put books down. Even when they're problematic, I try to push forward to the end to educate self about the way the world used to be. But man, this one. Post-WWI, Our Hero is recovering from injuries with a group of fellow soldiers and stumbles onto a plot centered around one of the nurses who treated him. The rest of the story carries on in grand Lupin style-- and I'll say I've been a huge fan of every book til now-- and would be fantastic if Leblanc hadn't decided to go You know, I do not often put books down. Even when they're problematic, I try to push forward to the end to educate self about the way the world used to be. But man, this one. Post-WWI, Our Hero is recovering from injuries with a group of fellow soldiers and stumbles onto a plot centered around one of the nurses who treated him. The rest of the story carries on in grand Lupin style-- and I'll say I've been a huge fan of every book til now-- and would be fantastic if Leblanc hadn't decided to go with horrifically racist "comic relief." One of Lupin's comrades-in-arms is a Senegalese soldier who lost an arm in battle, and who is nicknamed Ya-Bon because severe facial injuries leave him unable to speak and it's a sound he often makes. Ya-Bon starts the book like a total boss, kicking major butt-- his remaining arm is superhero strong-- but his character development immediately tanks. He is constantly compared to a dog or "dumb animal," his girlfriend is described as being "coarse" and nearly as ugly as he is-- not because of any injuries, mind you, which Leblanc does see as honorable, but because of his African features. He is depicted as incapable of understanding his own strength and accidentally kills people several times. He has to have everything explained very carefully to him multiple times-- in part because he isn't fluent in French, but that seems secondary-- laughs constantly, and adores it when Lupin frequently abuses him. Granted, in these scenes Lupin also comes off foolish (or, by modern standards, a ::complete asshole::) but it's a relationship (blatantly stated) between a man and his favorite dog, and the longer it goes on the worse (yes, it is in fact possible!) the caricature gets. We're also presented with some really awful caricatures of people from the Middle East (nasty, brutish, greedy, murderous, even with the awful physical descriptions aside.) It's nauseating. I will say that one positive in the book is how strongly Leblanc argues for the acceptance of wounded veterans in postwar French society-- but it's unfortunately at the expense of those who are physically challenged for other reasons. Just couldn't finish this one; it was too painful to read. Will try again with the next Lupin book and hope against hope it's better.

    For a long time this was going to be just 1 or 2 stars, entirely because Patrice Blevel was such an ignorant, racist, entitled ass. For a full 20% of the book this apparent war hero persistently berates and abuses his injured Senegalese friend Ya-Bon. I almost put the book down in disgust, to be honest. This wasn't what I'd come to expect from the other 6 Lùpin books I'd read.

However, I'm glad i stuck with it because once the story gets going, it's typical Arsène Lupin (he appears, in dramatic fashion, about halfway through). It's not the best - some of the deduction relies on information the reader hasn't been given, and often Lupin appears even more unbelievably superhuman than normal, but it was a creditable rescue of a story that was teetering on the unsavable.

    Un Arsène Lupin très agréable à lire, avec son lots de rebondissements et de bons mots. Une lecture légère parfaite pour se détendre. Seul regret: l'intrigue n'est pas aussi bien ficelée et il est relativement aisé de deviner une partie du mystère.

    Un roman haletant comme Leblanc sait si bien les écrire ! Cependant, il y manque la verve et la gouaille d'Arsène Lupin. On dirait presque que les années de guerre (l'histoire se situe entre 1914 et 1918) ont réussi à assombrir le 'primesaut' du gentleman cambrioleur...

    My least favourite Lupin book so far. I would not recommend it. The plot is weak and not as exciting as in other books of the series.

    This book is great It is so typical of Maurice Leblanc, but I like how she popped the main character in the middle of the story. This story told about a secret between Patrice and Coralie. An ex soldier who has his leg amputated but still stay strong and confident in his life. He has someone he trust so much named Ya-Bon, someone who can't speak. They speak through language only known by them. Patrice Belval loves Mother Coralie, a nurse that once saved his life.

But some how She had a secret that will never shown to everybody and always hide something behind her cap. One day, Someone got killed, and apparently Patrice known him because a day before, he was in his house. Mme Esseres, that known as Coralie's husband. They got involve in mysterious thing once Patrice recieve a letter and key, and those two things made Patrice and Coralie almost killed. Arsene Lupin come and give an enlightenment in this problem. Once I said, I like it how Maurice Leblanc write this story by make the main character appear by the middle of the story.

Au début du récit, le capitaine Belval qui est un mutilé de guerre, déjoue une tentative d'enlèvement sur une infirmière connue sous le sobriquet de Maman Coralie.

Arsène Lupin n'entre en scène qu'à la deuxième partie du bouquin et les choses continuent à se détériorer même si Lupin en fait son affaire... J'ai aimé ce bouquin du début à la fin. Chronologiquement, l'action se situe entre son départ pour la Légion étrangère dans 813 et son retour sur le devant de la scène dans Les Dents du tigre. P.S. J'ai lu l'édition de 1968 publié par Le Livre de Poche.

    What do you get when you mix seven crippled soldiers, a beautiful nurse, a broken rosary bead and a rusty key? A rollicking good story! Although Lupin makes his appearance rather late in the book, this is another delightful book in the series. The plot wasn't perfect, nor were some of the resolutions completely believable, but it was a great read for a rainy afternoon.
