Die Siedler von Catan ist ein Buch, dass ich im Urlaub gelesen habe. Es versetzt einen in die Wikingerzeit in der diese auf Entdeckungstour gingen. Das Buch ist durchweg spannend und einfach zu lesen. Empfehlenswert für alle die gerne Geschichten aus früheren Zeiten lesen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well worth the read 7. Oktober 2016
Von David - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
When I saw that there was a book based off of one of my favorite games, it was a must buy. I had high expectations going into the reading and the book delivered. For those of you who play the board game, the book is loosely tied to it. On the other hand, those who play the card game will absolutely be delighted by the book. In a lot of cases even the pictures on the cards are incorporated into the book. The best example of this is Brigitta the Wise card picturing her with her white and black ravens. You learn the story behind them in the book.

The book, in general, will add depth to your gameplay of Rivals of Catan. Rebecca Gable does an excellent job of making sure the book matches in the book in historical perspective and gameplay. You will get a certain thrill when you play both Cadamir and Osmund out on the table. Knowing now that they are close friends and foster brothers. I cannot say enough about how much more fun this game has become after reading the book.

There is even an explanation of how the land of Catan came to be. The author uses mythology of the people to give a story about Odin and a beautiful fairy princess he desired. Gable makes a great effort to make the book historical in nature. I really appreciated how real it made it feel. As a side note, you can find this book also in German. Which some people might enjoy more.

A great story to a great game. Gamers should enjoy this book greatly. It is a must read. for Catan players. It can be enjoyed without the game background! It is one of those books you pass on to another player of the game. Definitely, would make an unique gift for Catan players.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting take on the story behind the game 17. September 2013
Von Candace Weber - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
As a fan of Euro games, I love playing the Settlers of Catan game, and own many different versions. This book tells the story of the people who settled the original fictional "Catan" island.

It makes sense that the people are Vikings, who fled their homes where resources were short and looked for a new, warmer land. They were ready to fight for land but found a wonderful, warm island that was unpopulated and had plenty of the resources they wanted. So they established a settlement that used all the same resources we find in the game. Should have been happily every after, except for the greed and vices of some of the settlers. These settlers were exiled from the original settlement, so they established a new settelment for themselves. I guess they settled in the barren desert so that original settlers couldn't find them, but then they couldn't get resources, so became robbers, which again works with the mechanics of the game. Sheep were not native to the island, so this explains why they are a more important resource than other animals. So most of the major game features are explained nicely, in a good story that also educates on viking culture and has good characterization. It's difficult to make characters who hold slaves become relatable to modern readers, but author did a good job of that. A few features of the game were ignored (cities, soldiers, roads) but understandable given that storytelling was more important than fitting the game features.

All together, a good read with nice connections to the game.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Surprisingly and unexpectedly deep narrative. Good for fans of historical fiction, not just board-game-geeks! 10. August 2015
Von William A. Ronke - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This piece of fiction is about a group of villagers from a fictional Viking village called Elasund who make a difficult journey to leave their homeland and relocate in an island they call Catan.

While I expected a book licensed by a board game IP to be rubbish, I was shocked at just how well the author captures the spirit of historical fiction. While the places and people are almost all made up, the cultural setting is rather deep. The ongoing religious conflict between the Norse pagan traditions and the new Christian faith is fascinating.

The characters are nearly all quite three-dimensional, with a balance of strengths and flaws.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Historical Fiction 28. Januar 2017

I am somewhat of a Catan nerd, having played the game again and again. I came in to this story believing it would introduce characters from three to four nations having discovered this place all at once. This thought was wrong. The storyline was beautifully composed of religious conflicts and social norms that we would not commonly accept today. Just like a story of the mysterious Catan within the book, the characters' flaws made them perfect.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Very well written 2. April 2017

I so very much enjoyed this saga of early northmen. The story is complete with no need for a sequel. I'll be reading it again one day.
