Pressestimmen

'The Earth Hums in B Flat is a richly evocative, warm but unsentimental tale of a child detective struggling to piece together clues about the lives around her. These lives, and the characters who live them, are so vividly drawn and Mari Strachan's careful unraveling of the secrets they hide is extremely compelling. I loved this novel.' Catherine O'Flynn, author of What Was Lost

5.0 von 5 Sternen Interessant 29. April 2014
Von glizzery
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Die Geschichte ist sehr unaufgeregt und behutsam erzählt. Am Anfang fand ich es etwas schwer, in die Geschichte hineinzukommen, weil mir alles wirklich merkwürdig erschien, aber nach einer Weile konnte ich das Buch nicht mehr weglegen.

Ein etwas skurriles Buch mit einer stillen, aber sehr schönen Geschichte. Perfekt für einen verregneten Herbstabend.

Ja, Gwenni ist halt anders als Flavia de Luce, das ist aber auch gut so, beide sind auf ihre Weise wirklich einzigartig. Jedenfalls hoffe ich, dass die Autorin schon an ihrem nächsten Buch arbeitet!

2.0 von 5 Sternen Nicht wirklich lesenswert 4. Juli 2011
Von moeppl
Format:Taschenbuch
Dieses Buch erschien in den Amazo-Empfehlungen, nachdem ich auf Amazon alle Falvia-de-Luce-Mysteries gekauft hatte. Leider war dieses Buch ein totaler Reinfall. Ich hatte damit gerechnet, dass es vielleicht amüsant werden würde, stattdessen war es ziemlich frustrierend. Ich war froh, als es dann durchgelesen war, und das geht mir nicht oft so.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Endearing and enduring; a gem of a novel 10. Mai 2009
Von Steve Benner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Mari Strachan's début novel, "The Earth Hums in B Flat" is a deceptively dark tale of the charmingly naive Gwenni, an 12-and-a-half-year old growing up in north Wales in the early 1950s, with her quiet, implacable Tada; neurotic Mam; and a slightly older sister, Bethan, who has that somewhat supercilious sense of superiority that slightly older sisters so often have. The book is beautifully written, redolent of a time that is long gone but which yet remains within the memory of many of us; a time before today's modern domestic conveniences, when people still cooked and boiled kettles on the open range in the living room, kitchen walls were painted with flaking distemper and Toby jugs watched young children's every move from high shelves. And a time when everybody knew everybody else and their business, and yet nobody ever spoke of or admitted to any of it, and every family held secrets known to all (except often the family members themselves).

Mari Strachan's writing evokes that time perfectly, often with merely the subtlest of phrase or passing mention of some small detail or other. Gwenni is an absolute gem, naive and gauche, for all her intelligence, and with an imagination and wisdom that far outstrips her knowledge and experience. She sharply observes all around her, but understands little of the darker ways of the world and how the seemingly innocent things she picks up can connect in often far-reaching and damaging ways. Comic and dark by turns, this book is engrossing and engaging from beginning to end.

It is also beautifully paced, although I felt Mari Strachan does rush things just a tad towards the end, although this in no way detracts from the book's overall excellence. This is a book that can be read and reread, and savoured repeatedly for its simple effectiveness; a book that makes you laugh and cry by turn, over and over again. Heartily recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Terrific, engaging book. 31. Mai 2009
Von Book Lover - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This book is one of those rare finds.... a book that is beautifully written, emotionally charged and entertaining. While the book is written from the perspective of a twelve year old girl, this is by no means a simple young adult story. The narrator's age allows for a very interesting look at the complex, multilayered dynamic between the family at the center of the story and the community in which they live. This is a book that you will be sorry to see end!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderfully Written Story 5. Juli 2010
Von Mrs. C. Colbert - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Seen through the eyes of 12 year old Gwenni who lives with her mum, dad and older sister Bethan, in a small Welsh village in the 1950's, this is a lovely, quirky story, featuring characters such as Jones the Butcher, Edwards the Bank and Mrs Owen the Milk, a village where everyone knows everyone else's business and is full of secrets.

Gwenni wants to be a detective like her fictional hero, Albert Campion, and when one of her neighbours, Mr Evans, goes missing she decides that she will try and find him by looking at the clues and talking to Mr Sergeant Jones the policeman............but she finds more than she bargained for while learning a lot about her own family secrets and growing up.

This is a delightfully told and very descriptive story full of vivid and rich characters and sometimes I felt as if I was eavesdropping on private conversations, as if I was actually there in the room.

Gwenni was so sweet and innocent and serious and I very quickly warmed to her, she was always observing other people and is obsessed with being watched by inanimate objects such as her poster of Buddy Holly on her bedroom wall and the toby jugs on the living-room shelf

" .........the mantelpiece's clock's tick-tock is loud. I look up at the clock and see the Toby jugs almost falling off their shelf as they strain to watch and listen. They're straining so hard their faces are crimson."

It's a wonderful, funny, easy read and I loved it!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A down to earth novel of personal flight 30. Oktober 2009
Von mikellcw - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
When our heroine needs to "escape" her crazy family she take flight over her village and the neighboring countryside. This affords her not only a birds eye view but a way to clear her mind of all the abuse and unnecesary details that clutter her life. I really enjoyed the language of this novel, the flow of it, the relationships and the story which unravels as a wonderful mystery though you are likely to figure the plot from the beginning. I was surprised that this fact takes nothing away from the story. Delightful read and an amazing story of growing up and human frailty that we call family. As a child that fancied herself a bit of a detective, I highly recommend this wonderful story.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Family secrets 8. März 2012
Von Ignite - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I have read this book as a book club recommendation and would probably otherwise never have found it. It centres upon the life and family secrets of 12 year-old Gwennie who speaks intelligently but innocently of her life. She is sure she can fly - definitely in her dreams and possibly by day if she can only remember how she did it when she was small! We discover long-hidden family stories and are made to ponder the meaning of family, genetics, inheritance.

I found the style easy to read but very gripping. Gwennie's childish enthusiasm pulled me in. I warmed very much to the character of her father but found myself despising her mother for her treatment of Gwennie, her second child.

There's lots to think about in this book and I enjoyed it very much.
