L.A. Requiem (Elvis Cole)
L.A. Requiem (Elvis Cole)
von Robert Crais
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 7,81

4.0 von 5 Sternen A GOOD WHO DONE IT?, 4. April 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: L.A. Requiem (Elvis Cole) (Taschenbuch)
This is a fast paced work that keeps everyone guessing until the very end. I enjoyed the writing, wish i could have gotten to know the characters better and there were many. Well written, sinister, sad, all the elements that make up a great story.


Crazy for You
Crazy for You
von Jennifer Crusie
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 7,83

5.0 von 5 Sternen Funny!, 4. März 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Crazy for You (Taschenbuch)
If you want to chuckle and laugh at the absurdity of life read this book! Jennifer Cruisie wrote a delightful book about a woman who decided that her life was indeed hers and she goes about declaring it. A wonderful and entertaining story with a cast of characters that are equally endearing.


Rage Factor
Rage Factor
von Chris Rogers
  Taschenbuch

4.0 von 5 Sternen Vigilante Justice (ouch), 4. März 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Rage Factor (Taschenbuch)
the back of the book boasts "chilling and suspenseful". i did not see any of those things. I did read a well-written book, where our heroine deserved a little more character development. the book is fast-paced and action packed. There are surprising twists and turns. It is good in the respect that it shows women to be strong and capable, not good in that they are banded together and come off psychotic (okay so they maim and torture a few people). i recommend this book, because Chris Rogers is a promising writer!


The Cat Who Saw Stars
The Cat Who Saw Stars
von Lilian Jackson Braun
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 7,86

4.0 von 5 Sternen The Cat Who, 4. März 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Cat Who Saw Stars (Taschenbuch)
Not too long ago, i read another detective book that slightly trashed "the cat series". Being a cat-lover, i was somewhat upset because i do believe cats to be prescient. Lilian Jackson Braun never fails with the series. Q is especially divulging with his character, which i enjoyed because he seemed more human in this book. A few loose ends were not tied up, but all in all this was an entertaining read.


Welcome to the World, Baby Girl! (Roman)
Welcome to the World, Baby Girl! (Roman)
von Fannie Flagg
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen Delightful!, 5. Februar 2000
What does Fannie Flagg do? She has this incredible imagination, the ability to develop characters that are all too human. So you can take a page out of her book and apply it to yourself or someone you know (she is one hell of a writer). The main character, is a woman who is out of touch with herself, driven, but still compassionate. We take a trip with her, through the past and to the present, with relatives, friends, parents and finally home. I don't want to divulge too much, suffice it to say that Fannie Flagg is an american treasure. She captures what our culture is doing today and creates a story of a woman who with a lot of struggle and courage, does find herself.


Cloud Nine
Cloud Nine
von Luanne Rice
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 7,54

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sensitive Story about life and death, 5. Februar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Cloud Nine (Taschenbuch)
I enjoy good romance stories. This is an excellent one about a woman who has reconciliation to do with her family. She encounters a man, who has had his share of pain and his daughter (who hopefully we will see in another book by Luanne Rice). It is true that the poignancy of the story can bring out the kleenex, but the writing was superlative, describing a thanksgiving scene that made you appreciate your family more than ever. This is a thinking persons romance. It was tough at the end. But i enjoyed every word.


Storming Heaven
Storming Heaven
von Kyle Mills
  Taschenbuch

4.0 von 5 Sternen Non-stop suspense and action, a Great Read, 5. Februar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Storming Heaven (Taschenbuch)
Kyle Mills has created an interesting character in Mark Beamon - a suffering, slightly edgy, moral man who refuses to back down, kind of like a pit bull who will protect til the end. The introduction of a cult-like religion was a twist. This book was so well written, planned out, it had you rooting for Mark Beamon (along with a cast of characters that were irritating, frightening and endearing). There were so many surprises and the premise of our privacy being invaded by a group of people with a different agenda was definitely not a far fetched idea.


False Memory
False Memory
von Dean Koontz
  Gebundene Ausgabe
Preis: EUR 25,48

3.0 von 5 Sternen Unmemorable Want- to- be Terror Story, 26. Januar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: False Memory (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Dean Koontz is a fascinating writer. He is able to delve into the hidden fears, phobias and manipulate his characters with accurate portrayal of "that other" lurking beneath the surface. However, this book concentrated too much on the fear itself so that the fear became unscary and tiresome. A husband and wife are brainwashed, a mad scientist is responsible, a few heroes are thrown our way. His best book was River of Darkness - in fact i believe it to be a classic. False Memory is okay, but not as tightly woven as his other books.


One Hundred Years of Solitude (Perennial Classics)
One Hundred Years of Solitude (Perennial Classics)
von Gabriel Garcia Marquez
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen a major classic, 13. Januar 2000
i felt i had to put my two cents in. I read this book several years ago and still remember the magical way the story unfolded. Do Not Miss Out. You will long remember a place and people who existed in Gabe's wonderful imagination. The book is a rare gift of words.


A Widow for One Year: A Novel (Ballantine Reader's Circle)
A Widow for One Year: A Novel (Ballantine Reader's Circle)
von John Irving
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 15,95

2.0 von 5 Sternen No redeeming values, 13. Januar 2000
Bought this book a couple of years ago and finally got around to reading. I did not like it. Found that the main character was difficult to feel anything towards, the foray into Amsterdam's redlight district not understandably connected to the storyline and the story overall seemed disjointed. I kept hoping that the book would straighten out, that the characters would be believable and likeable but there was nothing important, worthwhile about this book. in my estimation one of Irving's worst.
