Kurzbeschreibung

27. August 2013 Berlin Gothic series (Buch 1)

Long after the Iron Curtain has crumbled, an invisible wall remains between the good citizens of Berlin and those who dwell in the city’s dark underbelly. And one family—the Bentheims—straddles the line between good and evil.

The family has graciously taken in Till Anschütz, a young orphan on the run, and he quickly befriends his new brother, twelve-year-old Max. Together, the boys explore the office where their cold, distant father, Xavier Bentheim, writes his novels. They discover a secret door, an underground lair, gruesome photographs, bizarre films, and horrifying scenes. Is this shadowy world the reason Xavier’s behavior has taken a turn for the vicious—and will they ever be able to escape what they’ve seen?

Berlin Police Inspector Konstantin Butz discovers the mutilated corpse of a woman; beside her lies a power drill freshly wrenched from her stomach. This latest in a series of related murders launches Butz on an obsessive search for the killer, but the key could lie hidden with his own girlfriend…Claire Bentheim.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Berlin Gothic: Book One 27. August 2013
Von TChris - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Berlin Gothic was released as a seven-part serial in Germany. In translation, it has been divided into two parts, of which The Beginning is the first.

For reasons that are initially murky, young Till Anschütz runs away from a mysterious place called Brackenfelde. A car driven by Julia Bentheim strikes him, but Till resists being taken to a hospital for fear that he'll be returned to Brackenfelde. Julia takes him home, where Till meets her son Max and daughters Lisa and Claire. Max lives in fear of his inability to meet the expectations of Xavier, his domineering father, a writer whose books are so horrifying he can't talk about them with his children. In some unspecified way, Xavier is in the clutches of his wealthy new publisher, Felix von Quitzow.

A dozen years later, a dying woman is found in a pit at a construction site, the victim of an apparent crime. Konstantin Butz investigates. While Butz is exploring a shaft in the pit, he thinks he sees ... something ... before the walls collapse, burying him beneath the muddy earth.

The two timelines are linked by Claire, who has become Butz' girlfriend. Yet Claire is a conflicted woman, inexplicably drawn to a boxer named Frederik, who seems obsessed with her.

Where will the story go? I haven't a clue, which makes The Beginning interesting but difficult to review. Maybe it will go nowhere. Maybe it will be great. What I can say about The Beginning is that it's a good beginning. Jonas Winner generates genuine tension, a sense of foreboding that pervades both plot threads. He creates a strong atmosphere of creepiness and he writes fast-moving, minimalist prose. If nothing else, The Beginning makes me look forward to the ending.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Bummer 1. Juni 2014
Von vj ewing - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is the first review I have written, but I feel strongly enough about this book to write it in hopes of saving others.

It was difficult getting into this book, but I persisted and was paid off by getting involved in the mystery only to be disappointed ultimately. The book closes with a tangle of lose ends and no closure/resolution on anything or rationale for most things. And there are going to be 7 or 8 more?!?

Among the many individual downers in the book: horrific scenes of torture and animal abuse and jumping back and forth in time and between writing styles/genres.

I got the book at very reduced price (free?), but trust me, it was too much.

BTW--one star, the price of getting this posted, is too high.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I can't understand the low rating for this book, it was GREAT! 30. September 2013
Von Lori - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is so good!!! It's intriguing, riveting, thrilling and keeps you guessing. I loved it! It's just the first of 7 in a series and was 406 pages and hope to read them all. It left me in the middle of a huge mystery; I need to find out what's going on!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Unyielding Horror (with a Side of Berlin Shaming)! 27. September 2013
Von kas - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
The first in the Berlin Gothic series is a very auspicious beginning indeed; it actually merits the definite article. ;)

I couldn't put it down. This is real horror, not just a thriller, and I found Jonas Winner's plot to be completely original.

What I found really striking was the sense of immediacy conveyed by Winner's prose. I felt like I was right in the action -- I guess that's normally true with books for fairly imaginative readers. If I had to pinpoint the difference I'd say I didn't find myself looking into my memory to fit what was happening into what already had transpired, and I was too absorbed to hazard guesses about what was to come next.

Again, horror fans, I cannot recommend this book highly enough.

One negative note: Can Berlin please get a break? Winner shamelessly excoriates the city as more or less the worst place ever on the first page. It's not like the place is underrated for its connections to the darker side of human nature...it would be nice to set the horror someplace more counterintuitive. I felt too drawn into some German guilt performance, but then again, what do I, the American reader, know about that?

BTW, I got my copy of this delight through Goodreads Giveaways.
1.0 von 5 Sternen don't bother 21. Dezember 2013

Confusing and uninteresting. Struggled thru about half before discarding it.Needs 10 more words to complete the review, I can't think of anything else I could say about this disappointment.
