5.0 von 5 Sternen Very entertaining, 11. November 2014
Patricia Cornwell’s “Flesh and Blood” is a well-constructed story with highly developed characters which shows her insight into the human nature, portraying Dr. Kay Scarpetta in a very engaging manner. This excellent characterization is supported by a brilliant plot and a smooth narration and succinct dialogue. The colorfulness of this story reminds me of “Triple Agent Double Cross”, and “Deadline”. In fact, “Flesh and Blood” has all the attributes of a well written story and comes with enough surprises to keep a reader in suspense all the way to the last page. Overall, I find the story very entertaining.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A good account, 6. November 2014
ISIS operates more or less like a Nihilist movement, but with the coat of Islam. And Jay Sekulow did a good job providing an insight into this barbaric organization. And as it is written in the book "Terror: Political Weapon, Social Infection, Dehumanizer", ISIS's ideology, method and limitations will see it crumbling not long from now.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Captivating, 20. Oktober 2014
I like the complexity of the characters, some of the plots and finesse of the narratives. The book captivated me. In ways like The Usurper and Other Stories, and like A Twist in the Tale. Worth reading again, especially since it is very intelligently written.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well-written, 14. Juli 2014
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Power Play (An FBI Thriller) (Kindle Edition)
I am in a sort of loss for the right words to use to describe this book. For a start, it is well-written with details that are baffling. The pacing added more spice to the narration and dialogue and the rich array of characters made the events there very believable. One can easily picture the different characters even in their difficult if not bizarre situations. In a style like in Triple Agent Double Cross, the smooth flow of the narrative is easy to follow. Kudos Catherine Coulter.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very fascinating, 20. März 2014
Be Careful What You Wish is as enjoyable as the other books in the series. With an amazing plot and highly credible character development of the protagonists and others in the book, the Jeffrey Archer combined these with his great knowledge of the time to accomplish such an outstanding story that is worthy of read. I enjoyed it a lot and recommend it to all readers who like unique books especially sagas of such a wide scope. I equally enjoyed Disciples of Fortune, Kane and Abel.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A memorable story, 25. Februar 2014
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Misremembered Man (Kindle Edition)
It makes my day when I find myself blessed with a memorable and hilarious story. The Misremembered Man turned out to be one of the stories that alters my thoughts and feelings for the better whenever I think about it. I enjoyed virtually every part of it. The characters are very true to life with challenges, fears, hopes and dreams that are so real. They actions are real too, which all combined with the excellent narration and plot to make this book the wonderful story that it is. I came to the last page ruing why it ended to fast. here are few stories like The Kite Runner, Water for Elephants, Flash of the Sun, that left me feeling that way.


The Measure Of A Man: A Memoir
The Measure Of A Man: A Memoir
von Sidney Poitier
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 11,81

5.0 von 5 Sternen Deep and penetrating, 20. Februar 2014
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Measure Of A Man: A Memoir (Taschenbuch)
I am in a sort of loss here when it comes to describing Sidney Poitier's "The Measure of a Man". It is well written and presents the values we need to live purposeful lives in a very well-tailored manner. Deriving joy in our every day lives is another theme that is well talked about in this book. Comic as it present itself, book and Janvier Chando's "Father and Sons" spell out values and the joy of life very well.


Beasts of No Nation
Beasts of No Nation
von Uzodinma Iweala
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 11,95

4.0 von 5 Sternen Awesome, 3. Februar 2014
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Beasts of No Nation (Taschenbuch)
Beasts of No Nation rings true in the countless civil wars that have ravaged Africa from the East (Somalia, Congo, Rwanda) to the South (Mozambique and Angola) the West (Liberia, Sierra Leone, Nigeria) and in Algeria and Sudan.The underlying theme of teenage soldiers being used for a cause against their comprehension is a dehumanizing crime that should be met with the harshest of punishment against the perpetrators. Also seen in Triple Agent, Double Cross, The Biafra Story: The Making of an African Legend, Disciples of Fortune, Shake Hands with the Devil: The Failure of Humanity in Rwanda, we find that the scar of war leaves a haunting legacy in the lives of children, especially the children who killed.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Awesome, 3. Februar 2014
This book is extremely interesting and the writer did a brilliant job work of presenting the conflicts in the protagonist's soul. I thoroughly enjoyed it and had a better idea of why those who experience two worlds easily identify with one , especially the world that does not look down on them. It is an insightful theme which I also came across in Disciples of Fortune, Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance, The Color of Water: A Black Man's Tribute to His White Mother, Midaq Alley. The story is also colorful and fast-paced.

von Alexander McCall Smith
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 10,50

5.0 von 5 Sternen Awesome, 3. Februar 2014
This book goes to bolster my initial opinion that McCall Smith is a sensational writer to look out for. The book goes to make the series a worthy read. I am particularly drawn to the way the author wrote about the way of life this African country especially its remarkable values. What is more, the characters are real and warm-hearted , and they give the story the humor that is necessary for an interesting life.The usurper and Other stories, The Kalahari Typing School for Men, Disciples of Fortune,turned out to be some of the fun stories I came across. Alexander McCall Smith is a talented writer.
