3.0 von 5 Sternen Brave stab, but doesn't stand up to other works., 17. Januar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Hocus Pocus (Taschenbuch)
The best part of Hocus Pocus is the beginning; It creates such a lure that the reader creates immense hope for the rest of the novel and for the most part, the novel does a good job of lving up to those hopes. Vonnegut's style is once again back in full flair, but I found myself bored by some chapters, whereas in another work, Slaughterhouse-5, every page kept me entertained. Not to say this is a bad book, but there are better Vonneguts out there.

5.0 von 5 Sternen What can I say?, 17. Januar 2000
The title of this review seems to run with the content. After I read Vonnegut's most famous novel, I found myself wondering if I liked it or not. As I read further Vonnegut works, I saw that the same style was emulated in each book and I kept questioning whether it was good or not. Vonnegut is truly nothing like any other writer you may have read; when reading the novel, the story seems whole, yet when you reflect upon it, it changes into merely a shell of a story. You also forget what you have read, both during and after you've read the book. It's quite an experience!


Anatomy of a Murder
Anatomy of a Murder
von Robert Traver
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 18,18

4.0 von 5 Sternen Traver's most famous work parllels the quality of the movie., 5. Januar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Anatomy of a Murder (Taschenbuch)
Once in a while, there is a book that I become obsessed with finishing; Robert traver's Anatomy of a Murder is such a book. He perfectly describes each and every delicate procedure undertaken by the book's hero, Paul Biegler, in order to successfully defend a muder charge.
Law is a thing which is immensely hard to understand, yet Traver has a way of explaining it in way that does not bore the reader and does not entirely detract from the story. Traver also has an interesting way of describing a character so that the reader can see them, but doesn't detail much of their physical features.
The best parts of the book (obviously) take place in the courtroom, where the reader will find themselves constantly changing their opinion between Manion's guilt. The part in which Biegler cross-examines the Prosecution's psychiatrist is one of the best chapters I've ever read in a book.
The only two problems with the book is that there is never any resolution with Mary Pilant, and it takes a while to get to the courtroom scenes.
However, if you are looking for a great courtroom drama, and a good read, this is one of the top in its field.
