Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death and Hop&hellip von Katherine Boo

Like some other readers, I plunged into this book imagining it to be a novel, and indeed, from the quality of the writing - the clear but invigoratingly idiosyncratic prose, the vividness of description, and the deep, often ironic but never damming insights into human motivations and interactions - it could have been.
Instead, it is a portrait, a rich, differentiated and many- levelled one, of a community which really exists - although the concepts of ' community' and even of ' exists' may look rather different, a whole lot more fragile, to fortunate western readers by the time they finish this book.
I will refrain from describing it further, since every… Mehr dazu
Bali Raw: An expose of the underbelly of Bali, Ind&hellip von Malcolm Scott
4.0 von 5 Sternen not for the starry-eyed, 25. Dezember 2012

5.0 von 5 Sternen schlank aber stabil, 8. Juni 2012
schnell geliefert, die kleine Tastatur macht einen viel wertigeren Eindruck als ich erwartet hatte. Überraschend schwer und daher angenehm stabil auf dem Tisch, hervorragende Druck(Tast)-Eigenschaften, nämlich federnd, leicht, aber doch mit einer angenehmen festigkeit d.h. nicht wabbelig. USB-Sender einstecken, einmal orten, und los. Kann ausgeschaltet werden nach dem Gebrauch, um Batterie zu schonen. Passt leicht zwischen Büchern und Akten im Regal wenn nicht gebraucht. Ich benutze die Tastatur stundenlang als Arbeitsgerät, und bin vollkommen zufrieden damit.
