Preis: EUR 4,47

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beautiful, 4. Juli 2016
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
A beautiful book - I must have read it a thousand times for my son between ages 1.5 and 3 years. Very simple to understand, a touching story that is meaningful to even the youngest children, and a sturdy travel-sized board book that can be read anywhere.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Robust and entertaining toy for toddlers, 4. Juli 2016
We bought this bus for our son's first birthday, and it was an instant hit. Now, 2.5 years and one baby brother later, it is still a family favorite and in daily use. Younger children love listening to their favorite songs and beeping the horn, older children can start to explore numbers and letters. The bus is also remarkably robust - it still works perfectly despite being repeatedly dropped, kicked, banged into walls, sat on, etc. Every six months or so the music starts sounding distorted, but this is easily fixed with a new battery. Absolutely recommended!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Hochwertig aber uninteressant, 4. Juli 2016

Wunderschönes Spielzeug, hochwertig verarbeitet - aber leider völlig uninteressant für meinen einjährigen Sohn. Liegt seit sechs Monaten unbenutzt in der Ecke. Schade, vielleicht haben andere Kinder mehr Spass daran.

A classic - like probably so many parents, I know this one off by heart. Both of my children loved hearing it over and over again starting at about 12-15 months. Sturdy edition and perfect compact size for both home and travel.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Nette Idee, Ausführung nicht ideal, 3. Juli 2016
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Wir haben dieses Brett für unsere zwei Kinder (3 und 1) gekauft, weil sie immer von Türen und Schlössern fasziniert sind. Anfangs haben sie auch mit Begeisterung damit gespielt, allerdings stellten sich bald zwei Nachteile heraus:

Erstens sind zwei der Türen so schlecht verarbeitet, dass sie klemmen und selbst für Erwachsene nur schwer zu schliessen sind. Für Kleinkinder kaum zu schaffen und daher ziemlich frustrierend. Ich kann natürlich nicht beurteilen, ob dies nur ein Fehler bei unserem Brett war oder ob ein allgemeines Problem ist.

Zweitens sind die anderen Schlösser wiederum so leicht zu öffnen und schliessen, dass die Spannung und damit die Spielfreude von kurzer Dauer waren. Für den Dreijährigen wurde es bereits nach einem Tag langweilig, der Einjährige hatte nach einer Woche genug. Seitdem holen wir das Brett nur noch alle paar Monate hervor, dann wird es wieder für eine Weile mit Begeisterung aufgenommen.

Alles in allem ein nettes Spielzeug, aber von Melissa und Doug hätte ich für den Preis eine bessere Ausführung erwartet.

An excellent board book for children of all ages. Our 18 month old loves looking at the colorful pictures, and our 3.5 year old enjoys matching letters and words. The book is very sturdy and small enough to fit in any handbag, and it travels with us everywhere. A fantastic addition to any young child's library!


One of our Thursdays is Missing: Thursday Next Book 6
One of our Thursdays is Missing: Thursday Next Book 6
Preis: EUR 7,49

4.0 von 5 Sternen Typical Thursday Next, 13. Oktober 2012
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Another typical Thursday Next novel – crazy, wild, sometimes a little confusing and inconsistent, but fun anyway. This time, the story is told from the perspective of the written Thursday, rather than the real one, and takes place almost entirely in the BookWorld. It all starts when the written Thursday is asked to investigate what initially looks like a minor book traffic accident, but turns out to be part of a major conspiracy that may lead to war in the BookWorld. On top of this, the real Thursday is missing, and only she can prevent this war. So the written Thursday sets out to uncover the conspiracy and find her real counterpart before it is too late…

If you enjoyed the other Thursday Next novels, this one is very similar and there won’t be too many surprises. If you are not familiar with the series, I would recommend starting with ‘The Eyre Affair’ before reading this one. Jasper Fforde’s wild imagination and crazy ideas (some clever, some very random) take a little getting used to, and you may be lost without some background on the BookWorld from the previous novels. Worth it though if you are a fan of science fiction / fantasy that doesn’t take itself too seriously, but is just an enjoyable read!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Ok but nothing like other Terry Pratchett books, 15. September 2012
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Long Earth (Kindle Edition)
Step Day: The day that mankind finds out that the world consists not just of the one Earth we inhabit, but of an infinite number of parallel Earths, collectively known as the Long Earth. A rush to explore and colonize these new worlds begins, and the novel follows the exploits of Joshua Valiente and his travel companion Lobsang, a computer who believes he is the reincarnation of a Tibetan motorcycle repairman. Joshua and Lobsang set out to discover what lies at the end of the Long Earth, encountering many mysterious creatures and increasingly disturbing incidences along the way. Meanwhile, back on old Earth, social unrests and havoc erupt as people try to cope with the challenges of this new reality…

Maybe I set my expectations too high, but I was a little disappointed in this book. First, for Terry Pratchett fans, it doesn’t feel like a ‘real’ Pratchett - it lacks the satire and sarcastic humor of the Discworld series or other co-authored books like Good Omens (one of my favorites). Mostly it reads like a semi-serious science fiction novel with a few jokes scattered in. Second, the central idea is great and has so much potential, but somehow it feels like this potential is never fully realized. Many good opportunities are left frustratingly untouched, and the ending seems slightly unfinished. Having said this, I did mostly enjoy reading the book; some of the ideas are very clever, and I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see some variation of this story reappear as a movie somewhere down the road.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Touching story of a young woman's struggle against adversity, 15. September 2012
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
After a traumatic childhood of growing up in abusive foster families and juvenile group homes, Victoria Jones is released from state care on her 18th birthday and left to fend for herself on the streets of San Francisco. Emotionally scarred, aggressive and unable to connect with the people around her, Victoria instead capitalizes on her love for flowers, taking a job in a small flower shop to support herself and survive. As time goes by, Victoria starts to build a tentative friendship with the owner of the flower shop, and, through a surprising coincidence, with characters from one key happy episode of her childhood. However, knowing that she has failed at every other human relationship in the past, she fully expects failure and loneliness now, and she struggles between her desire for family and friendship, and her fear of once again bitterly disappointing those who love her…

When I first came across this book, I was a little put off by the title and cover image; it looked like a silly romance novel to me. This is not the case at all. It is true that the main themes (relationships and friendship, mother-daughter love, flowers, babies and weddings) are more likely to appeal to a female audience, and almost all of the characters (with one necessary exception) are women. However, these are woven into a beautiful and cleverly written account of Victoria’s struggles against adversity, jumping between her present life and her past, offering just enough glimpses into that one particular episode of her childhood to keep the reader in suspense and trying to piece together the puzzle of her life. A very touching story, and as a bonus, you do learn a lot about flowers!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beautiful historical fiction on life in New England in the 1600s, 26. August 2012
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Caleb's Crossing (Kindle Edition)
Set in the late 1600s in the nascent New England colonies around Boston, ‘Caleb’s Crossing’ tells the story of two young people struggling against religious dogmatism, intolerance, physical hardship and family tragedy to try and become educated, respected members of society. Bethia is the daughter of a Christian missionary who is attempting to convert the local Wampanoag tribe of Indians to Christianity. As a girl, Bethia is banned from receiving an education, so she secretly listens to and learns from her brother’s lessons to satisfy her intellectual curiosity. Caleb, whose character is based on a real historical figure, is a young Indian who is originally destined to become a spiritual leader and healer for his tribe. When his family is wiped out by a smallpox epidemic, Caleb converts to Christianity and is educated by Bethia’s father. Highly successful at his studies, Caleb is sent to Harvard as one of the first Indian students to prove, against major resistance from the English establishment, that Indians are also capable of great scholarly achievements. Meanwhile Bethia, although equally intelligent, is sent along only as a servant to earn money to finance her brother’s studies…

Written in the style of a diary from Bethia’s perspective, this novel offers a fascinating historical insight into life in the early New England colonies, especially for women. It highlights the difficult relationship between English settlers and native tribal people, and provides an interesting description of life at Harvard during the earliest days of the college. It is also a beautiful and touching fictional story in its own right. If you enjoy historical fiction (and an old-fashioned elegant writing style that fits the subject), I can highly recommend this book.
