Loved this the latest instalment from Joe Abercrombie. I read a lot of the reviews on here, but the one thing none of them mentioned was something that for me makes it a must buy on its own. Logan 'The Bloody Nine' Ninefingers is back! Great story, as others have said very Unforgiven like in its feel. Highly recommended.

Abercrombie raccoglie un paio di personaggi già incontrati nella trilogia de La Prima legge, nel frattempo invecchiati, e, partendo da un rapimento, riserva loro un'avventura a tratti picaresca, disseminata di fughe, uccisioni, ricerca d'oro, ricatti e riscatti, e passati da nascondere ma che inesorabilmente vengono a chiedere il conto. L'autore lo fa col suo solito modo irriverente (probabilmente più realista di molti suoi altri colleghi), proponendo figure dalle personalità forti, temprate e spigolose che riescono a catturare il lettore e a farlo divertire. Il tutto permeato da un'ambientazione simil western che aiuta sicuramente le dinamiche "senza legge" che si vengono a creare nelle varie situazioni; di fantasy c'è poco, praticamente nulla.

Di contro, il romanzo ci mette molto a decollare. Non annoia, questo no, perché Abercrombie sa sempre come creare situazioni d'interesse, anche e soprattutto grazie ai protagonisti, e quindi a non far calare l'attenzione tra le sue pagine. Ma se ci si distacca da questo aspetto, si nota che, gira e rigira, sarà solo l'ultimo terzo di romanzo a entrare nel vivo della storia, a renderla davvero palpitante.
Una piacevole lettura.

5.0 su 5 stelle A Rush for Gold and a Rush of Blood (Spoiler Free Review) 23 ottobre 2013
Di Poisoned Blade - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
It's like a spaghetti western with swords.

Story:
After returning home to her farm, headstrong Shy South and her hulking but sullen step-father Lamb, discover that they've been raided. With their farm burned to the ground, and the children missing, they set off to hunt down the kidnappers. The party eventually teams up with a wagon train of desperate prospectors as they trek across the plains searching for gold in them thar hills. Their adventure takes them across a wild frontier full of natives, mercenaries, the inquisition, and betrayers. A few characters from the First Law Trilogy return and it's great to see them. There are some twists and turns and people get what's coming to them.

World:
The world is similar to the old west, but the characters carry swords instead of guns. Gunpowder and a cannon type weapon are introduced in this book and there's no magic. With the themes of natives, a gold rush, wagon trains, a small dirt-water town, it feels more like a western, than a fantasy book.

Characters:
Shy South is hard as nails, enjoys a good drink, and can negotiate a banker to tears.
Temple is a man of many talents, but his cowardice holds him back.
Dab Sweet is a legendary scout far past his prime.
Lamb is a shy giant of a man, who avoids confrontation... until pushed too far.
The characters are all fun to read and they play off of each other with witty dialogue and dry humor.

Writing Style:
Joe Abercrombie is known for his gritty writing style, bloody violence, dark humor, and not-so happy endings. Everything in this book is dirty, dusty, covered in puke, blood, or excrement. But that's just the way it is on the frontier. The action is extremely violent and bloody. The humor is dry. And at times, the story takes an unexpected turn away from things that are predictable and climactic, to throw the reader a curve ball.

Action:
This book has less action than the other Abercrombie books, but there are raids, horseback battles, brawls, duels, and skirmishes. The action is bloody and there's a bit of gore. It's well written and you feel the characters struggle, the impact of the blades, and the injuries afterwards.

Maturity: Adult
There's sex, swearing, adult themes, drinking, puking, killing, beating, decapitating, dismembering, and downright ornery characters.

Overall:
This is a very good book. The pace is uneven, but when there isn't any action, it's enjoyable to read the characters interacting with each other. The action is violent. The dialogue is funny. The humor is dark. The setting is right out of the gold rush. The characters are shockingly ruthless... but true to their motives.

If you enjoyed Joe Abercrombie's books, you'll like this one, even though it's much more western than medieval fantasy. If you haven't read the First Law Trilogy, just know that you'll get a lot more out of this book if you read that first. It's not completely necessary, but it helps!
5.0 su 5 stelle Fantasy Western? Yep. And it's Great! 29 luglio 2015

The front of the book has a quote saying "Abercrombie at the top of his game." I'd have to agree with that. At this point if you are looking into this book, you probably have read the others in the First Law world. If you wonder if he loses steam or talent at all, don't worry. Like the quote says he's at his best.

The book focuses around some new characters: Shy, Lamb and Temple. Shy South has some skeletons in her closet but is generally a good person trying to get her brother and sister back and will travel into the Far Country to get them back. Lamb is like her step dad and Shy will be the first to tell you that he's a coward but Lamb goes along on the trip being that he promised their mom that he would look after them. Temple is a man who's worked a bit of everything most recently being lawyer and he has a nagging conscience. There are some familiar characters that are featured in the book such as Cosca, Friendly, Shivers and yes the return of Logen Ninefingers!

This book is just great. Its in the same world but you can defiantly forget and think its a western at times. It has a gang of outlaws, bar fights, a caravan of wagons across the plains, savage natives called Ghosts, miners looking for a fortune of gold, and bloody disputes in a boom town.

You can expect the same in this book that you find in Abercrombie's other books: a great story, interesting and flawed characters, surprises, a world that's not black and white but grey and of course bloody great action. Oh and once again, the return of The Bloody Nine himself !!!

So again if you have any doubts about this book, you don't need to worry. Its as good as his other books or better.

5.0 su 5 stelle Joe Abercrombie is likely my favorite author over the last decade plus 4 aprile 2017
Di Rick - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Joe Abercrombie is likely my favorite author over the last decade plus. Red Country somehow successfully merged an old fashioned rescue story, our old west, fantasy, imperialistic politics and several characters trying to become better than their past. Along with one character who clearly gives up on becoming better than his past. And as always with Abercrombie, the book is worth reading for the dialogue alone. In fact, I love one of the protagonist's quotes so much it's literally tattooed onto my chest. And as someone dealing with aging in a rapidly changing world, parts of this struck home in a surprising way. Favorite book in the last decade.

5.0 su 5 stelle Just as good as the first law 18 gennaio 2013
Di Awful Scribbles - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Red country has a different kind of flavor compared to the first law books, but the rough humor and atmosphere is preserved. It is great to get to see ninefingers from an outside perspective. The thing about Abercrombie is that he can really depict the futility and pointlessness of brutality and still do it in a completely entertaining way. After reading his book one is filled with the feeling that the entire adventure was all for nothing. No great evil was defeated, wicked people remain wicked and your normal average Joe keeps on being average with all flaws and perks unchanged. Some good people die, some bad people survive and a lot of average people are caught in the middle.

Violence is pretty much never justified and even though Red Country is filled with violence it is never for the greater good, the greater good simply doesn't exist in Abercrombies world (or in reality for that matter). Selfishness, greed and stupidity drives the story and no good deed goes unpunished for long. What keeps the book entertaining in the light of such pessimism is the great characters and the dark humor. Who can not love characters like Nicomo Cosca? Who can not at times identify with Temples cowardice and isn't there something appealing with Lambs resignation that violence is in his nature?

A great read, it can be read without reading the first law trilogy but reading them first adds to the experience.

I thoroughly enjoyed Red Country, as I have all of Joe Abercrombie's work. To me JA stands alone for his great mix of complex and well-rounded characters, gritty action and twisted humor. He is a real breath of fresh air for the dark fantasy world and I love him for it. Red Country introduces some new characters from past books as well as exciting revivals of prior characters (no spoilers), and if you've enjoyed his previous works, definitely check this one out. The characters are complex, the action is grim, violent as hell (of course) and also full of dark humor as is JA's trademark style, all following along a revenge/manhunt plot line that is full of some surprising twists. I admire JA's attempt to bring in a Western flavor on the story, and it gives a refreshing take on the dark fantasy world that readers of the genre have grown accustomed to. I love that JA has such a fresh approach to the work and is always trying to do different things in terms of genre style and switching up a different lens through which to tell the story. My only beef was that the Western theme was a double-edged sword for me in that sometimes it really worked well, and sometimes it embellished the story a bit too much to the point of being distracting. There were times during the read where I felt that JA was trying to see how much of a Western he could make the story, minus guns (which I appreciated since I am a purist when it comes to mixing timelines and technologies), versus just telling the story. This was a minor deterrent, however, and if you like his prior work, this will not disappoint in the least. If you are new to JA, I wouldn't start here, however, as I feel this is not as strong as his other books. If you want to dive into a trilogy, read the First Law Trilogy (it is excellent), or otherwise Best Served Cold or The Heroes (possibly my favorite, if I had to choose), for a standalone novel.
