5.0 von 5 Sternen Des Autors kleiner Helfer?, 15. Juni 2013
Wenn man sich bewusst ist, was man hier kauft - nämlich einen Thesaurus - kann das Buch wirklich Gold wert sein. Ich nutze es weniger um während des Schreibens à la "Hm, wie könnte ich das darstellen?" Emotionen zu beschreiben, sondern ich weiß meist welche Emotion in einer Szene (oder einem Teil davon) dominiert und schlag dann nach und gucke, wie man das deutlich machen könnte. Nicht immer werden die gegebenen Beispiele genutzt, aber sie sorgen doch für genug Inspiration! Gerade die Kindle Version kann man sich wirklich zulegen, lohnt sich meines Erachtens nach sehr!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sehr zufrieden!, 1. Mai 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Ich bin leider jemand, der dazu neigt zirka eintausend Stifte mit sich herumzuschleppen, wenn denn der Platz da ist. Deshalb habe ich schon länger nach einem kleineren Mäppchen gesucht, vorzugsweise aus Leder und kein billiges Ding, das nach drei Wochen wieder kaputt geht.

Wegen der guten Rezensionen und dem guten Preis habe ich dann hier zugeschlagen und was soll ich sagen: Ich bin vollkommen zufrieden! Der Platz reicht (für mich) für einen Kugelschreiber, Bleistift, Textmarker, kleinem Anspitzer und einem kleinem Radiergummi, was vollkommen ausreichend ist. Vorbei ist die Zeit des endlosen Stifte-Kramens!

Die Mappe ist sehr flach und sollte deshalb wohl selbst in den überfülltesten Taschen ihren Platz finden. Sie riecht anfangs doch sehr stark nach (marrokanischem?) Leder, teilweise ein bisschen unangenehm, aber nach zirka einer Woche in Gebrauch rieche ich das nur noch, wenn ich direkt mit der Nase daran gehe und ich würde es nicht mehr als unangenehmen Geruch beschreiben.

Insgesamt: Definitiv eine Kaufempfehlung!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Für mich einer der schönsten Liebesfilme überhaupt!, 3. Februar 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Wie ein einziger Tag [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Zum Film an sich möchte ich eigentlich nur so viel sagen: Für mich ist er definitiv eine der schönsten Liebesgeschichten überhaupt, sowie auch eine der besten Buchverfilmungen. Wenn man auf Liebesfilme steht, sollte man sich diesen Film definitiv nicht entgehen lassen!

Zur Blu-Ray selber bleibt zu sagen, dass ich ein wenig enttäuscht war. Ich dachte, man würde einen größeren Unterschied zur DVD-Version feststellen können. In hellen Szenen lässt sich das natürlich durchaus erkennen, bei dunkleren Szenen sieht das aber schon anders aus. Zumal, zumindest gefühlt, es mehr dunkle Szenen als helle gibt. Ich hab mich auch kurzzeitig gefragt, ob ich vielleicht schwerhörig geworden bin, weil ich meinen Fernseher auf eine derartige Lautstärke stellen musste, dass mir anschließend fast die Ohren beim Normal-TV abfielen.

Drei Sterne, weil der Film einfach gut ist. Nur drei Sterne, weil es diese Blu-Ray nicht ist.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Titanic [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Ich denke, zum Film an sich muss wirklich nichts mehr gesagt werden - entweder man mag ihn, oder halt eben nicht aber gesehen haben ihn wohl die meisten!

Ich muss zugeben, dass ich den Film früher als Kind (noch auf Video-Kassette) rauf und runter geguckt habe, aber als wir dann unseren Videorekorder gegen einen DVD-Player eintauschten, blieb Titanic auf der Strecke. Jedenfalls bis ich irgendwann durch meine Amazon-Empfehlungen schaute und plötzlich die Blu-Ray entdeckte. Es handelte sich dabei also mehr um einen Spontankauf.

Ich hab den Kauf bis heute nicht bereut und den Film sowie auch alle Extras bisher mehrere Male gesehen. Den Unterschied zur DVD kann ich wie gesagt nicht wirklich beurteilen, allerdings ist das Bild wirklich sehr scharf, dafür dass der Film echt schon ein paar Jährchen alt ist.

Definitiv ein Must-Have für alle Titanic-Fans!

It's somewhat funny how I KNOW that these books are good, but it still takes me at least half a year after they're published to actually read them. It was like that with Divergent, and now again with Insurgent. As some of you may know, I'm currently on a semester abroad and because of that my time for recreational reading is extremely limited. (Actually, by the time this is online my semester is as good as over, but as of right now I'm smack in the middle of studying). I was at home for a couple of days and saw Insurgent on my shelf and though: "Why not start? You can always come back to it later." Yeah, as if that was going to happen. I had to take it with me on the train because I couldn't bear not knowing.

Insurgent picks up right where Divergent left off - and I mean, literally almost the same second. There is no explanation like there usually is in the next installment of a series and I found that I kind of missed it. I was thoroughly confused in the beginning, unable to remember who some of the characters were (yes, I mixed up Peter, Caleb, and Will). But I suppose that is my fault for not refreshing my knowledge of the series. Once I got over that (and it didn't really substract from the story at all) I raced through this novel like few books besides. Even though I was super exhausted when I finally arrived in my dorm room, I couldn't sleep because I had to find out what happens next.

The fight against Erudite continues of course, with about half of Dauntless driving the fight forward. They (or should I say: Tris) find out very interesting stuff, but nothing to really sway them from their path to destroy Erudite. And don't get me wrong, they're doing some pretty bad stuff. But I know that if I had to choose between factions, I would have to try to get into Erudite because nothing else fits me at all. Which means I can't see them as solely bad. Lucky me.

Now, I don't want to take anything away because I feel like just talking about some of my favourite parts of this novel would definitely spoil a few very good scenes. The cliffhanger at the end didn't really surprise me though! I heard some 'outrage' about it, but I began suspecting what is was when the novel drew to a close ... which is not that bad, believe me!

All in all, I think Insurgent cannot surpass Divergent. I liked Divergent a smidge more - but I still loved Insurgent! While I'm writing this my eyes are burning because I stayed up way too late. That's when you know you read a good book!

This might be the one series that is just as incredible as it is exhausting to read. Don't get me wrong, I love it so much! The characters and the world building is divine! But - and this is especially true for the beginnings of (I think) every book in the series - sometimes it's a little slow and you just want someone to do something because there are stretches that feel a little dragged out and I noticed this here as well, but more pronounced near the middle. I put the book aside because it took me so long to read it and I needed some reviews for this blog. When I got back to it, it was incredibly easy to just jump back into the world. It's never been this easy for me to return to a book I had put on hold!

There are a lot of characters I want to cheer on! Sansa and Arya, mainly, because even though I really love the Lannisters, they do deserve every bad thing that happens to them. I grew to love Petyr Baelish as well, and Brienne! I love Brienne! If she is dead, then ... I'm going to rage, I swear. I also have the sneaking suspicion that the old man blinded Arya (or Cat) because she admitted that Arya killed that man and thus acknowledged that she was not No One. I do hope it isn't permanent, though.

Other than that ... Go Starks! And hurry, Mr. Martin, because I'm catching up with your publications and I don't want to wait five years to read The Winds of Winter. If you're still reading my reviews of this series, you simply HAVE to be a fan. So go read it! Now! If you stuck with all those characters for three books, you will be able to stick with them until the end!

Oh my God! Oh my God, oh my God. Oh my ... Really, those were my thoughts after turning the last page. This book had me on an emotional roller coaster! I loved them, I hated them, I pitied them, I wanted them dead. The characters, that is. Anna is a privileged girls from the good part of town, Abel is from the wrong side of the tracks, he's a dealer and quite a few other things. Do you think you've heard that story before? You are so wrong. This story will make you tear your heart out and feel the need to stomp on it.

Anna and Abel's story is so heart wrenching, it immediately reminded me of Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma. I felt my heart break on multiple occasions, and there were times where I felt the need to slap a few characters. Or maybe shoot them, I don't know.

I can't talk about the translation of this novel, because I read the German original. In the original, the prose is so wonderful and dreamy, especially the fairy tale parts int he chapters are very beautiful.

There is one issue, though. Skip this paragraph, if you don't want to be spoiled.
There is rape in this book. That is not inherently a bad thing for a book, even if that sounds ridiculous. If the act itself and the victim are treated properly, I don't criticize those scenes. However, in this book the victim forgives the offender in a matter of days and they never speak about it again. She never talks to anyone about it at all. And rape should not be treated like this, not in books and certainly not in the real world. This is the only issue I had with this book. In fact, it made me put the book down and think if I would finish it. After that, the book resumes its great story, its heartbreak. I was unsure what to do, concerning the rating. The book is well written, but the treatment of the subject rape was rudimentary at best. Decide for yourself, whether you want to read the book anyway. The story and characters are worth a read - just read it with my warning in mind.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Looking for Alaska (Taschenbuch)
I'm not quite sure what I expected when I started reading this book. I had wanted to read something written by John Green for a long time because so many people have so many nice things to say about his books. I started with Looking for Alaska mainly because it was the book I had in my bag on my drive to Brussels – but I was hooked from the first page.

I don't read many books that are written from a male's point of view, most likely because a lot of the books in the genres I read have females point of views and not because of a concious decision. But in any case, I loved Pudge's (= Miles') voice. It was very raw, very real. Especially once the book starts talking about "After" I can definitely feel the emotion. I have lost someone semi-recently and everything is so spot on. The questions you ask yourself, the anger you feel. For me, it felt very very real.

Personally, Alaska is one of the girls I usually hate. And I don't particularly loved her specifically either. But I can understand everyone's fascination with her, and maybe because of that it drives me crazy not knowing why. But that's how it is - you don't get all the answers in life, especially not in a situation like the Colonel's and Pudge's. The novel makes it clear that life does not give you everything you might want but it also shows the reader that it is still possible to carry on, regardless.

I can't say that I did not have problems with this - especially in the beginning, I found this to be slow and the many similarities to Jane Eyre put me off instead of endearing me. First, there is the name of the heroine: Jane Eliot versus Jane Eyre. Edward Rochart versus Edward Rochester. Governess versus governess, estate-owner versus estate-owner ... well, I could go on but I think you see where I'm going with this.

However, there is one great difference which is the post-war setting as well as, you guessed it, the fey. At first, the latter is not prominent, except for the consequences of the war the humans have to live with. But after about half of the novel, something happens. I can't say whether it is plotwise, or if something in the writing changed, but suddenly I couldn't put it down. I was enthralled with what was happening, appaled when Jane made her decision and ever more appaled when she realized what she had done!

Just like in 'Jane Eyre' I love the brooding, older man Jane falls in love with. There is quite an air of mysteriousness around Mr. Rochart that I find quite exciting. If you like fey, you should definitely check "Ironskin" out. If you like modern retellings, again check this out. In the end, the retelling is not as obvious but still this is quite a good book!


City of Dark Magic: A Novel
City of Dark Magic: A Novel

Preis: EUR 12,95

3.0 von 5 Sternen 30 Nights Insomniac Reviews, 31. Dezember 2012
Rezension bezieht sich auf: City of Dark Magic: A Novel (Taschenbuch)
Ever since I went to Prague for the first time, I've been absolutely in love with the city. Because of that I rarely pass up an opportunity to read a novel set in Prague. City of Dark Magic starts with Sarah receiving the job offer that brings her to Prague. She is quite excited about this, as one can imagine. However, she also finds out that her favourite professor appears to have killed himself while working on the same project she is going to work on.

One tremendous issue I had with this is the following: Sarah apparently speaks German. Which in itself is of course not a problem. It is however a problem that she keeps dropping German words into English sentences. "It was verboten. Or whatever the Czech equivalent of verboten was." Things like that. And then of course, if you write in a language that you don't speak, make sure that the vocabulary you look up is accurate. At one point, someone calls Sarah an "Ausfall". When I read this, I was utterly confused as to what this was supposed to mean. Afterwards Sarah translates Ausfall to failure. However, in that sense, failure would be Versagerin in German and Ausfall means outage. Oops.

Apart from that, I mostly enjoyed it. Some scenes were very funny, others quite ridiculous. After my initial problems with Sarah (she thinks about her libido way more often than I'd care to know about), I started to care about what happened to her, especially since she seems to manoeuver herself into very dangerous situations.

City of Dark Magic is quite busy, and especially the plot string concerning Charlotte Yates seems too much for me. I think she could easily have been written out of the book without losing any of the plot. If she hadn't been in it, the book might have been a little shorter but also easier to digest.
