    Raffles: Further Adventures of the Amateur Cracksman Comment

    1. Raffles Further Adventures of the Amateur Cracksman is even enjoyable than its predecessor, The Amateur Cracksman E.W Hornung, having already established the characters of gentleman thief A.J Raffles and accomplice chronicler Bunny in the first book, is freed up to have fun with his creations and allow them to embark on adventures that aren t all strictly criminal in nature.In Further Adventures, Hornung departs somewhat from the writing style of his brother in law, Arthur Conan Doyle, by maki [...]


    2. Raffles, the amateur cracksman, is back from a supposed watery grave to continue entertaining us with Further Adventures and they are quite good Anyone missing quiet evenings reading the exploits of Sherlock Holmes should find these tales to be a most fulfilling substitute The relationship between Raffles and Bunny is so reminiscent of Holmes and Watson There are disguises, hair breath escapes, villainous antagonists, and a sense of location that constantly seemed very comfortable.The set of sto [...]


    3. I say, Raffles is starting to grow on me, what This one is quite well written, has depth and is about Bunny and their ridiculous and juvenile relationship is even a little moving despite the faintly ludicrous plot Onward chaps.


    4. This book is the 2nd book of Raffles series and i love it so much Raffles and Bunny characters and relationship just remind me with how Sherlock Holmes and Watson interacting with each other Raffles and Bunny characters are so lovable, you can t hate them even though they are thieves But what makes me a bit disappointed is the ending It s a cliffhanger again Just like the first book So i need to read the next book to know what really happen with Raffles and Bunny.



    5. Raffles need of theseEnjoyed this book I seem to be ahead of the story usually as it goes I would like to have something with a little Mystery


    6. Having enjoyed the first collection of Hornung s AJ Raffles stories, I decided to embark on this second volume of adventures Much like Holmes resurrection following his tumble at the Reichenbach Falls, Raffles The Gentleman Thief returns from the dead to once again purloin diamonds and tiaras from London s great and good There is a great charm to these Edwardian stories The peril is usually of the mild sort apart from when the dastardly Italians become involved and Raffles is an honourable man w [...]


    7. Kelanjutan kisah petualangan gentleman thief Raffles yang diduga tewas dalam buku pertama, ternyata muncul kembali dalam penyamaran sebagai sosok pria tua renta dan lumpuh, mengejutkan sahabatnya Harry Bunny Manders yang menjalani hukuman penjara akibat perbuatan si Raffles.Secara keseluruhan, kumpulan cerita pendek dalam kisah ini lebih menarik dibandingkan buku pertama, dan membuat semakin gregetan adalah ending kisah ini yang benar benar surprise again about this book, just check my review a [...]


    8. I couldn t finish this book After reading and enjoying the first book of short stories, I was eager to read this collection as well This book was a disappointment It was confusing and a struggle to read I much prefer the previous book with Raffles and Bunny as younger characters involved in college and cricket Not as old men In short, it just didn t work for me this time and I had to put it down.


    9. This is the second book of the adventures of AJ Raffles, the Amateur Cracksman, and his companion in crime and chronicler Bunny The stories and involvement of the characters is slightly complex than in the first book, but Bunny s naivety is unbelievable and in too great a contrast to Raffles ingenuity and cleverness.


    10. I don t know if I would be capable of appreciating these books so much if I hadn t already read lots of the Sherlock Holmes stories But I don t care so much for detectives any as I care for gentlemen thieves.


    11. Saya tercengang saat membaca ending buku ini E.W.Hornung menamatkan seri Raffles dengan sangat indah menurut saya.Selain itu didalamnya berisi cerita2 yg lebih seru dari buku pertama, jika Anda sudah mempunyai yg pertama sangat disarankan untuk membeli buku pamungkas seri Raffles ini.


    12. An interesting book It was written in 1901 , set in Edwardian England so was something different than my usual choices in books but I enjoyed the characters of Bunny and Rafffles and their adventures.




    13. Subtle, funny and engaging Not quite a caper book Raffles is an action hero who is too much a gentleman to break a sweat.


    14. The stories of are Victorian burglar are good, but the author s need to keep condemning our hero for his crimes, gets old.


    15. Sedikiiiiit lebih bagus dari buku sebelumnya, tapi tetap saja, tokoh Raffles tidak ada apa apanya dibanding Lupin atau bahkan Kaito Kid nya Conan p
