Dit was lekker om weer 'n boek in Afrikaans te lees. Dit het so rukkie gevat om weer gewoond te raak daaraan, maar toe dit lekker om so 'n storie van ons mense en plekke in my taal te lees... ( )

Tiny Mpayipheli wants nothing more than to live out the rest of his life with his wife and stepson. He is a good man. His plan is to save enough to purchase some land and farm. But he has a past and when he gets a message from an old friend to bring him a hard drive, it seems like an easy task. Unfortunately the drive contains information that may or may not be bait in international game of spies. Soon everyone is after him and he is trying to stay loyal to his new life and his friend. That may not be possible.

This is a terrific book. It's a real page turner but with heart and feeling for the people and country of South Africa. It's also an examination of good and evil.

Some passges:

But disillusionment followed, not suddenly or dramatically—the small realities slowly took over uninvited. The realization that people are an unreliable, dishonest, self-centered, self-absorbed, backstabbing, violent, sly species that lie, cheat, murder, rape, and steal, regardless of their status, nationality, or color. It was a gradual but often traumatic process for someone who wished only to see good and beauty.

“That is my problem with the media, Miss Healy. You want to press people into packages, that is all there is time and space for. Labels. But you can’t label people. We are not all good or bad. There is a bit of both in all of us. No. There is a lot of both in all of us.”

And he had said: “You know, whitey, it sounds like the new excuse to me. All the great troubles of the world have been done in the name of one or other excuse. Christianization, colonialism, herrenvolk, communism, apartheid, democracy, and now evolution. Or is it genetics? Excuses, just another reason to do as we wish. I am tired of it all. Finished with that. I am tired of my own excuses and the excuses of other people. I am taking responsibility for what I do now. Without excuse. I have choices; you have choices. About how we will live. That’s all. That’s all we can choose. Fuck excuses.

Un opus réussi, rythmé, où les clichés prennent suffisamment d'épaisseur pour devenir crédibles. D. Meyer connait son affaire, et nous sort (un peu) des sentiers battus. ( )

"Heart of the Hunter" is the third book that Meyer has written, a stand-alone novel. His ninth book, and 4th in the Benny Greisel series will be released in the USA Oct 2, 2014. I am a big fan of Meyer, and have enjoyed virtually all of his books tremendously. And if there is an exception to that rule, it is with this book. Meyer is an excellent story-teller and he grabs the reader's attention from page one. There is usually plenty of tension throughout his books but it really ramps up in the last quarter. Not so with HotH. It was an interesting story, perhaps a bit unnecessarily complex. Too much had to be explained, and the timeline was all over the place. The story begins with a pone call from a kidnap victim to his daughter. The ransom is a hard drive hidden in his safe at home. She contacts a former colleague of her father and he agrees to deliver it, leaving his common law wife and her young son but promising to return in two days. However a South African intelligence agency has the phone tapped, and suspicious of what might be on the drive, they deploy forces to stop the delivery. Most of the story deals with the journey, and a number o flashbacks to fill in an incredible amount of history and other unknown detail. Don't read this as your first Meyer, instead read any of the last 4 or 5 books. I started with "Blood Safari", loved it, and I am eagerly awaiting "Cobra". ( )

Jegerens hjerte :
Tiny Mpayipheli lever et rolig familieliv etter tidligere å ha jobbet som leiesoldat for regjeringen. En dag blir han kontaktet av den desperate datteren til en gammel venn. Faren hennes har blitt kidnappet. Tiny går med på å overlevere en harddisk med sensitiv informasjon til kidnapperne.

Jegeren :
Når han plutselig får regjeringsagenter og diverse undergrunnsmiljøer i hælene, innser Tiny at han er involvert i noe langt større enn en kidnapping. Han truer til seg en off-road motorsykkel og setter ut på støvete, ufarbare veier, med en konstant fare i ryggen. Det går opp for forfølgerne at personen de jakter, sannsynligvis er den råeste drapsmannen de har vært borti, en kriger kjent under navnet Jegeren.
