2.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointing!, 5. Juli 2010
I think I have seen too many Hollywood romantic comedies to appreciate anything in this book. There is hardly any novelty in the story; I bet all the money in my pocket that you can predict, beyond an ounce of doubt, 90 percent of the story after about the first 50 pages... I think romantic comedies are terribly tough to write... they need to be engaging yet light, heart- warming yet funny... Romance is so full of clichés that it is difficult to come up with something truly original, something you haven't already read or seen a hundred times over... Susan Donovan is an average writer... she doesn't have an especially nuanced or captivating style of writing... not to say it's insipid,… Mehr dazu

Alan Bennett's hypothetical take on the Queen of England's all-of-a-sudden obsession with reading, and its repercussions on her life, is concise and hilarious.

In fact, he is audacious enough to claim how reading makes the Queen a much better human being, how it turns her from inconsiderate to compassionate, especially when it comes to her interactions with the lesser mortals! Bennett doesn't spare the British prime minister either, and labels him ignorant… Mehr dazu

4.0 von 5 Sternen A humorous social satire, 5. Juli 2010
I read this book during a recent tour around Germany. And I remember sitting in railway platforms and inside trains and laughing out loud, at the expense of being mistaken for a mentally disturbed person. But I couldn't help it. The Catcher in the Rye is a refreshingly hilarious, albeit somewhat upsetting, account of 16- year old Holden Caulfield's confrontation of life. It provides an amusing insight into the mind of the teenager, and his brand of wisdom.

This book is about Holden's struggle to make sense of the world, to find his place and purpose in life. After being repeatedly kicked out of schools, the boy is lost, unable to fit in this world, and thoroughly disillusioned… Mehr dazu
