Rezension bezieht sich auf: Girl with a Pearl Earring (Taschenbuch)
This novel, and the film adaptation have received the highest acclaim, and despite being "assigned" to read it for a course in the university, I found it quite enjoyable. I do not, however, like how the author wrote in very short, sometimes choppy sentences. It disrupts the flow of the book and the vocabulary is also quite rudimentary. Such writing styles cater to the broader spectrum of readers; it simply isn't my cup of tea.

Not to spoil anything about this long-awaited ending to this saga, I will say that Sanderson stepped in and filled Jordan's shoes nicely. The style was preserved and this was the ending that Jordan wanted. I did, however, find that the book repeated itself a lot, especially when describing the battle scenes. Some of that excess could have been edited out without sacrificing anything in the novel. My only qualm is that the novel ends very abruptly after the battle is over and I would have liked a little more detail about the state of the world afterward.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Poorly written, 1. April 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Before I started reading this book, I was very enthusiastic about the Paleo diet. This book, however, made me so angry that it almost put me off the whole idea. Apparently the author was trying to cater to absolute morons when writing; at least, that is how I felt when reading it. It is childish, dumbed-down to the lowest degree, and just keeps repeating itself over and over without giving much prudent information. There are eating plans in the last section of the book but no serving sizes are stated. Now, it is not hard to look online and research typical "serving sizes" of foods, but then the author goes on to elaborate on a story about how he gobbles down a pound of steamed vegetables when eating asian food, substituting for the rice/noodles. I find the book misleading-- he states several times to the effect "if you don't want to know the 'how' then just skip to the 'do' section." Well, I read the whole book and never was quite sure where the "do" section was! It goes from the "how," to exercises, and then to the eating plans without ever really saying how to best implement them. If I wasn't already well-versed in nutritional health then the supposed "morons" this book caters to would most likely be lost after finishing.
