War Cry (Courtneys 14)
War Cry (Courtneys 14)
von Wilbur Smith
  Gebundene Ausgabe
Preis: EUR 16,99

4.0 von 5 Sternen Fulfilling, 22. April 2017
Rezension bezieht sich auf: War Cry (Courtneys 14) (Gebundene Ausgabe)
"War Cry" is certainly not the best novel out there of the Wilbur Smith brand, but it carried on with the Courtney saga. The far-reaching setting covering Africa and Europe in such an intimate manner and the narrative and plot made it a worthwhile read. With a reach, depth and insight like "Disciples of Fortune", it fulfils its purpose as one of the satisfying family sagas out there.

The Lost Order: Cotton Malone (International Edition)
von Steve Berry
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 11,99

5.0 von 5 Sternen Enjoyable, 20. April 2017
Steve Berry's "The Lost Order" met my expectations. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The depth and breadth of the story are similar to Janvier Chando's "Disciples of Fortune". It fulfils all the functions of a well-written historical fiction with political underlinings.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Brilliant, 26. Januar 2017
The Trapped Girl is another worthwhile read coming on the heels on my second read of Triple Agent Double Cross. Robert Dugoni came up with a brilliant plot that is full of suspense. The characters are well-developed and the pace is not only fast, but breath-taking. Dialogue is great too and the setting is brilliant. A highly recommended read.


The Day Democracy Died (Kindle Single) (English Edition)
The Day Democracy Died (Kindle Single) (English Edition)
Preis: EUR 2,99

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very informative, 27. Dezember 2016
"The Day Democracy Died" is one of the most concise, informative, revealing and well-written works on the the democratic process and the way factors influence the choices the electorate make. It could be looked upon as the forerunner to the work"OUR LAST STAND:: Donald Trump’s Victory in the 2016 Presidential Election and the Next Phase for America" hat I just read as they break down how populist or opportunist can play on the negative mood of the electorate and become the choice of the people against what many may call rationality.


Swing Time
Swing Time
von Zadie Smith
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 11,99

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent, 24. November 2016
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Swing Time (Taschenbuch)
This is my second Zadie Smith book, and like the first, it lived up to expectations. Written with a strong sense of dramatic necessities and constant action and interactions, it brings to life characters that are vivid and easy to relate to, especially Aimee and Tracy, the two principal characters whose lives the story is centred around. The story comes with insights and depths that we find in historical and family sagas like Disciples of Fortune, This was Man, The Godfather, Master of the Game. Swing Time is a must read.


White Teeth (Roman)
White Teeth (Roman)
von Zadie Smith
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 7,99

5.0 von 5 Sternen Recommended, 18. November 2016
Rezension bezieht sich auf: White Teeth (Roman) (Taschenbuch)
White Teeth fully qualifies as a refreshing novel. The characters are lively, identifiable and rich. I also found the dialogue to be rich, one of the reasons that kept the book interesting throughout the read. I was entranced as to what is coming next and kept on reading and reading until the last page.I also recommend Disciples of Fortune, The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, The Line of Beauty,The Usurper and others for their depth among other things.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Lovely, 6. Oktober 2016
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Two by Two (Taschenbuch)
The amazing thing about Two by Two is its wonderful insight into human interaction in situations which involve bloodties and special bonding. Nicholas as usual did not fail us in making things so simple so that I emerged from reading the book more insightful and with a better understanding of relationships. It remind me of the book Me Before Them, which I read a while ago. Love rules.


The Poisonwood Bible: A Novel
The Poisonwood Bible: A Novel
von Barbara Kingsolver
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 6,72

5.0 von 5 Sternen Refreshing, 7. Juni 2016
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Poisonwood Bible: A Novel (Taschenbuch)
A story of an American family with a mission to serve God in Africa who through their ordeals and other useful experiences gain an insight into what many call the Trouble Heart of Africa, and so help us the reads to gain another view of life that is very enriching. Novels like Disciples of Fortune, The Poisonwood Bible, Out of Africa serve as good road maps for readers still getting familiar with contemporary Africa.


Winter Men
Winter Men
Preis: EUR 4,99

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great work, 1. März 2016
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Winter Men (Kindle Edition)
I like well-researched works whether it is fiction or non-fiction, especially in their account of an era that holds so much for historical truths, revelations and lessons. "Winter Men", though a historical fiction provides an insight of Nazi Germany in ways that few contemporary works do, and it does a great job of using the characters to explain the complexity of that era of political ideologies and the way twisted ideas led Europe's supposedly most civilized nation into launching the most destructive war in history and into committing the greatest mass murder in the history of humanity. Other stories like Disciples of Fortune, Night, The Night of the Generals; provide further insight into that era.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A masterpiece, 25. Februar 2016
Jeffrey Archer has always intrigued me with his style, but I have to admit he keeps me anticipating something all the way to the end of his stories, and I am never disappointed because he finally comes with the twist in the plot that reveals an unexpected angle. He did just that with Cometh Hour. His family sagas and historical novels have always been gripping. And with a mix of distress, money, ambitions, history etc, he did it again, bringing the series to a wonderful conclusion. I see elements of Disciples of Fortune,The Godfather, and Sins of the father, in Cometh Hour. Only if there were a way to continue the series.
