2.0 von 5 Sternen uninspired, 5. September 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Under the Never Sky (Kindle Edition)
The story had potential, in the hands of a talented writer it might have been a good book. Unfortunately the author's writing style is VERY simple, my daughter who's learning English could do better. The characters are interchangeable, weird things happen that are never explained. The story starts in medias res without giving any background. I was very bored.

2.0 von 5 Sternen so herzensgut it makes me puke, 1. September 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
An UTTERLY predictable tale of people who are so very good and selfless and saintly and of course beautiful, opposed by people of the exact opposite. Normal people with normal emotions don't exist here. I found it at times unbearable to continue for this book, and its heroine were so exaggerately and unbelievably benevolent

5.0 von 5 Sternen haunting and beautiful, 19. August 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
What starts quite normally in modern London turns into a Victorian Gothic paranormal story. Two timelines, cleverly interwoven, outdoing themselves with suspense.
The aristocratic modern family, seen through the clearvoyant eyes of the young nanny, are irrevocably entangled with their ancestors.
Get yourselves this book, you won't be able to put it down,

1.0 von 5 Sternen Award-winning?????, 15. August 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
If this is award-winning fiction I certainly don't want to encounter the not winning kind. Although the plot - 17th century half-Japanese girl, raised in Japan, is forced to return to her heretofore unknown Englich Puritan relatives - could have been interesting, the author only delivered a dim-witted story. The characters are stereotypical in the extreme, the writing-style is utterly basic,utterly repetitive, and it is drawn out to be past boring.
Historical fiction for the simple-minded

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Immune (The Rho Agenda) (Kindle Edition)
While the first book was partly a (boring) high school novel with pompous speech, this second volume makes you voraciously read and read, gasping for breath. Very interesting plot with two so different technologies ( though a bit too much on the good vs evil -side).
So: Make your way through The Second Ship and then be rewarded with this bummer. Now on to the final volume!

4.0 von 5 Sternen fast-paced thriller with lots of twists, 16. Juli 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Definitely much better than the first book, which I found in parts boring and implausible. This sequel hardly leaves you time to breathe, so if you can overlook the patriotism, the delusion of American superiority, the hero-worship, here is a page-turner for you. I couldn't read it in one go, I needed a break from time to time from reading that the USA are the best and have the best of everything.
What I generally miss in US books is a broader view. If a worldwide phenomenon is happening, why narrow the POV completely to the united states and act as if no other parts of the world existed?

1.0 von 5 Sternen only for very soppy children under twelve, 4. Juli 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
No story, no grammar, no plot, no logic, only youngsters drooling over each other. Humour? Certainly not. Unbearable. I'd give zero stars if this was possible

3.0 von 5 Sternen mixed read, 26. Juni 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
You need to read the line first, otherwise this book will make no sense.
Like The line, The source starts slow. It takes a few chapters till the author finds his pace and the narrative runs smoothly. The middle part is good, the end is too drawn out IMHO. But middle books are always difficult...no beginning, no end.
More family secrets are revelled, not all of them unexpected. The golem from part one is still with us, and now fae lore is mixed in too. So, all in all a fun read. I'll definitely read part three.

2.0 von 5 Sternen don't waste your time..., 22. Mai 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The End of Mr Y (Kindle Edition)
...like I wasted mine. This book never gets better, it only gets worse. Thought-experiments and philisophical ideas of the last 1, 5 centuries are put in a blender and the resulting unappetising mash is too thin to cover the gaping holes in this not-story. At first I thought this might make for an educating read but it's just a figment of a lurid imagination.
So there is no reality. Maybe it's better this way

5.0 von 5 Sternen Magnificent, 12. Mai 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Blackheath Seance Parlour (Taschenbuch)
It's gothic, it's paranormal, it's vivid, it's superb, it has ghosts and murderers and chocolate gorillas and vampires...two very headstrong sisters dabble in the dark arts in Victorian London and find themselves in more than they bargained for.
Utterly captivating from first to last page.
