Angela's Ashes
Angela's Ashes
von Frank McCourt
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen Moving and evocative, 17. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Angela's Ashes (Taschenbuch)
Wow - I'm still speechless after reading this book. When it was described to me, I sort of dreaded it - poverty, hunger, filth, alcoholism - not uplifting topics. But told by Mr. McCourt in a faithful childlike voice, these subjects while still grim take on a factual bitterless tone. Can't wait to read 'Tis.


Interpreter of Maladies
Interpreter of Maladies
von Jhumpa Lahiri

4.0 von 5 Sternen Satisfying, 17. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Interpreter of Maladies (Taschenbuch)
I'm not a fan of short stories in general but the stories in this book are so simply straightforward yet rich in character depth that they offered a very satisfying read. Looking forward to more from this writer!


The Catcher in the Rye
The Catcher in the Rye
von J.D. Salinger
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 7,00

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fascinating, 2. Februar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Catcher in the Rye (Taschenbuch)
No wonder this book is a classic. The author reveals bits of Holden's life and personality in a fashion that is a bit like a strip-tease. I couldn't put the book down and I found Holden to be a compelling, wonderful, lively character. Worth the time and effort!

1.0 von 5 Sternen Could this be more trite?, 2. Februar 2000
What makes a wonderful personal memory doesn't necessarily translate into an enlightening read for others. No doubt Mitch holds vivid deeply felt memories of his former professor - who sounds like quite a wonderful guy - but the "lessons" learned are obvious.


Caucasia: A Novel
Caucasia: A Novel
von Danzy Senna
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 15,12

4.0 von 5 Sternen Very enjoyable, 2. Februar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Caucasia: A Novel (Taschenbuch)
I read this for my book club and I was delighted. I enjoyed entering a world unfamiliar to me described in such a vivid way and I truly connected with the book and its wonderful characters. The writer brings the pain the young girls feel to life without being overly sentimental. A good read!


Neurotica
Neurotica
von Sue Margolis
  Taschenbuch

1.0 von 5 Sternen Not worth the time, 2. Februar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Neurotica (Taschenbuch)
I wasn't expecting great literature when I picked up this book - but often even the most light summer reading has some redeeming quality such as a likeable main character. I found Anna to be an absolutely ridiculous character and the book not worth the time (or money).
