Let's Kill Uncle (The Bloomsbury Group)
Let's Kill Uncle (The Bloomsbury Group)
Preis: EUR 6,05

5.0 von 5 Sternen a wonderful surprise, 4. September 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
I picked this up after reading Martin Rowson's recommendation in the Guardian as a book that had changed his life. I especially loved the anarchic madness of it, the writing is a joy, and it's full of surprises. I guess it was written for younger readers, but the language is witty and sophisticated. A film was made of it, but I think I'll stick with the book.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Less would have been more, 21. März 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Excessively repetitive, same stories and examples of big data over and over again, none of them new or surprising. The authors are uncritical of social and political implications, at best leaving all options open. In this case, less would certainly have been better. It would possibly have made an interesting lecture or paper, but it's not the stuff of books.


ROBERT AICKMAN: AN INTRODUCTION (English Edition)
ROBERT AICKMAN: AN INTRODUCTION (English Edition)
Preis: EUR 3,07

4.0 von 5 Sternen Fascinating background information to a brilliant storyteller, 9. März 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
I discovered Robert Aickman by chance, had not heard of him until about 6 months ago, his stories are brilliant, short stories work well in Kindle format. After reading two collections of stories, I found this short introduction to a fascinating man. It reads a bit like an academic piece, but if you like Aickman's writing, it's well worth reading.
