Kobra: Afrikaans Edition | [Deon Meyer]

Kobra: Afrikaans Edition

Deon Meyer, die mees gewilde Afrikaanse spanningsverhaalskrywer, se nuwe roman is nou beskikbaar as luisterboek! Die laaste ding wat kaptein Bennie Griessel van die Valke nodig het, is moeilikheid. Want hy suip dalk al weer, hy lieg vir sy kollegas en sy AA-borg, en die intrek by Alexa Barnard was 'n fout. 'n Karnallie van 'n fout. Maar die gastehuis-bloedbad buite Franschhoek was die werk van 'n professionele laksman - drie slagoffers, drie perfekte kopskote.

Publisher's Summary

Deon Meyer, die mees gewilde Afrikaanse spanningsverhaalskrywer, se nuwe roman is nou beskikbaar as luisterboek! Die laaste ding wat kaptein Bennie Griessel van die Valke nodig het, is moeilikheid. Want hy suip dalk al weer, hy lieg vir sy kollegas en sy AA-borg, en die intrek by Alexa Barnard was 'n fout. 'n Karnallie van 'n fout. Maar die gastehuis-bloedbad buite Franschhoek was die werk van 'n professionele laksman - drie slagoffers, drie perfekte kopskote. En dis nie net die onverklaarbare gravering van 'n spoegkobra op die koeëldoppies - en die komende mediasirkus - wat Griessel laat bloed sweet nie.Twee van die oorledenes is lenige militêre tipes. Spesmagte. Of Spoke. Moeilikheid. Heel agter, in die hoofslaapkamer, is tekens van 'n gestoei, en te veel bewyse dat iemand ontvoer is. Bes moontlik 'n buitelander. Groter moeilikheid. Maar die paspoort is vals, die Britse konsulaat speel spioenasiespeletjies, en dieselfde huurmoordenaar slaan toe by die Kaapse Waterfront. Boonop neem die staat se duistere Sekuriteitsagentskap die ondersoek oor, en die Valke moet 'n vlugtende, baie vaardige Kaapse sakkeroller dringend opspoor om hul eer - en die demokrasie - te red. Maksimum moeilikheid.

Please note: This audiobook is in Afrikaans.

    When I drive, I read... uhm listen. I like SciFi, Fantasy, some Detective and Espionage novels and Religion. Now and then I will also listen to something else.

    "Deon Meyer delivers! - but in Afrikaans"

    Deon Meyer, master thriller writer is at it again. Once again I stand amazed at the amount of research that went into his new book 'Kobra.' He gives a true and believable sketch of the South African Police Service, the railways between Cape Town and Stellenbosch (with one exception), the current perceived state of South Africa as a country and to an extend Interpol and some lesser important things in the novel.

    Capt. Bennie Griesel is at it again... doing his bit to make the world a better place. But is he drinking again or is he still fighting the temptation of the bottle? Why is he sleeping in his office? This is the backdrop against which quite a few people are murdered and the Hawks must deliver. But these murders are all committed with bullets marked with a cobra on the shell. Who is this Cobra? What has brought a hired assassin known in Europe to South Africa? Why is the British, American and seemingly South African government on edge?

    These are questions that will be asked and answered during this book. Meyer has an excellent ability to bring the rich and the poor together in his books. In Kobra he does it really well. It is where these two worlds meet that the sparks fly.

    I think Nic de Jager has the right voice for reading Deon Meyer's books. Fortunately Deon Meyer is not using so many swear words - maybe it is because I don't understand the French swear words - as usual, thus it doesn't detract so much from a really good story and De Jager can read with more confidence. I thought De Jager read the Cape Afrikaans also very convincingly.

    If you can read Afrikaans or Dutch, I strongly recommend that you listen to this book. It is mostly even paced and clear. But maybe it is better to wait for the English translation to be available in audio format, especially if you don't understand Afrikaans.

    [Afrikaans: Ek dink nie 'n mens kan verkeerd gaan met hierdie boek nie. Dit is 'n spannende ontspan misdaad-riller. Die soort boek waarvan Deon Meyer die meester is. Ek dink Bennie Griesel is 'n karakter wat nou in die Afrikaanse literêre landskap ingeburger geword het, amper soos Sherlock Holmes in die Engelse landskap.]

    "Thoroughly Enjoyable Book set in the Cape"
    Would you try another book from Deon Meyer and/or Nic De Jager?

    Yes. I have listened to English versions of Meyer's books, but this is the first Afrikaans eboek that I have listened to,


    What about Nic De Jager’s performance did you like?

    His ability to switch between English, Afrikaans and colloquial Kaapse Kleurling Afrikaans


    Do you think Kobra needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes - just good entertainment.


    Any additional comments?

    Let's have more ebooks in Afrikaans!!
