2.0 von 5 Sternen Poorly transferred to the Kindle Edition 29. Februar 2012
Von Phoonzang
Format:Kindle Edition
I would like to stress that this review is solely intended to address the conversion to the Kindle format!

This ebook is a very good example how it should not be done: The first impression was good, standard chapters work, cover included what you would expect of a good conversion. The text itself however is littered with errors, missing characters or even words (which are substituted by a "?"), stray breaks in the middle of sentences, sometimes _very_ arbitrary capitalization. Amazon (or whoever does the conversions) should really work on that.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Emotion and intrigue 11. Juli 2000
Format:Hörkassette
The compelling story of an apartment building brimming with some of the most interesting San Fransiscan characters one could imagine. Well written and believable, this story gets a strong recommendation from me.

5.0 von 5 Sternen THE book to give as a gift 21. Juni 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City begins one of the most entertaining, touching and involving series of books I have ever had the pleasure of reading. The dialogue crackles, the action is paced brilliantly, and the characters pop off the pages and stay with you long after the final chapter ends.
The cable network Bravo has recently re-broadcast the film version of "Tales" as part of their Gay Pride month series. While PBS and Showtime have done an admirable job translating these tales into well-produced mini-series, nothing can compare to reading these amazing books and becoming involved in a time and a place that are gone forever.
I have given this book to friends and family on countless occasions. It never fails to delight and entrall. And everyone I have given the book to has gone on to read the complete series.
I miss my friends on Barbary Lane, and I am EXTREMELY eager to read the next book by Mr. Maupin. Please, Armistead! Hurry!

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Amazing Read! 14. Juni 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
This is a fantastic book. It is campy, creative, suspensful, and a true joy to read. I first read it in 1994, and have revisited this book several times since then for its humor and spirit. The characters are so lively, and the drama laden turns in the lives of these neighbors will catch you by surprise! A great book for reading on the beach or by the pool-lighthearted and a true reflection of the spirit of San Francisco. Enjoy!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A tale of my own 10. Februar 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
I read the 'Tales' series in 1994. I remember cracking open the first book and falling in love within the first few pages. These were characters that I really wanted to get to know, here was a picture of gay love that wasn't veiled or shadowed.
A week went by spent entirely with my new friends (interrupted only by an inconvenient search through the bookstores of Perth for an elusive copy of 'Further Tales').
I remember almost going into shock when I closed 'Sure of You', so strongly had Mouse and co. entered into my life. How could I return to my dull life after such pleasure and joy! Well I did, and a year later (the day I saw the 'Tales' mini-series at a film festival) I came out to my best friend. I realised that it was time to take some of that joy and freedom off the pages and the screen and into my own life. Six years later, I'm happy to report that there's many an interesting 'tale' to tell...

5.0 von 5 Sternen A delightful starting point for a brilliant satire 16. Dezember 1999
Von voyage2k
Format:Taschenbuch
First things first when it comes to reading Maupin's Tales of the City series -- learn to read in segments. This first book flashes from place to place and character to character swiftly so that the reader can get an overall picture of the situation. Quite honestly, it reads much like if it were a television series (which it was on PBS and Showtime...two miniseries, so far). Thus, if you expect it to be full of long chapters and focusing on a conversation or situation for a long while, you're going to be disappointed (much as one of the more recent reviewers of this book was, I note). Maupin's tale of a newcomer to San Francisco, the naive and reserved Mary Ann Singleton, and her misadventures with the residents of Barbary Lane (Mrs. Madrigal, the gay and proud Michael, the liberated Mona, etc.) is the stuff of Dickens' serials, brought to the 1970s in a flash of humor, adventure and out-and-out 1970s wackiness. I have read and re-read and re-re-read the entire series over and over again and have never failed to be entertained by the characters or the situations they find themselves in. Truly one of the most brilliant series out there. Give it a chance -- you won't regret it!
