Gelesen und gehört im Februar und März

So, heute ist der letzte Tag im März, und ehe ich es wieder vergesse, hier mal was ich in den letzten beiden Monaten so gehört und gelesen habe.

 

Dies ist ein copy&paste von einer anderen Seite, deswegen sind eventuelle Kommentare auf englisch, aber es sind allerhand deutsche Titel dabei.

 

February:

The Silent Barrier by Louis Tracy (LV ):15)–no mystery this time, but a romance

The Postmaster’s Daughter by Louis Tracy (LV, 07:37)–another mystery novel in good old Louis Tracy style. :)

Der Tod und andere Höhepunkte meines Lebens by Sebastian Niedlich (07:22) — Great book, but unfortunately abridged for the CDs, so about 1/3 of the book is missing, and it shows in places.

The Magician’s Lie by Greer Macallister (10:18) — a chance find, and a great one. Read by two narrators (1 male, 1 female), it’s a really great story about love, deceit, and illusions.

Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb (17:23)– Great book, great narrator, absolutely recommendable for fantasy buffs like me.

March

Royal Assassin by Robin Hobb (29:21) — s.a.

Assassin’s Quest by Robin Hobb (37:39)– Loved it as much as the previous volumes in this trilogy.

The Lake House by Kate Morton (21:25)– Great story telling, not sure about the ending, though. Exceptional narration by Caroline Lee.

Katherine Lauderdale by Francis Marion Crawford (as DPL) (07:46:24) — Interesting story about a young couple in New York.

Katherine Lauderdale Volume 2 by Francis Marion Crawford (as DPL) — a bit of an open ending, but OK.

Die Herren der Grünen Insel by Kiera Brennan (33:04)– I was glad I could switch between reading and listening.

The Spell/Sword book 1 by G Derek Adams (05:08) — got this one for free from the narrator in exchange for an honest review on audible.

Finished books:

 

February
Für König und Vaterland – Der Wechselbalg by Susanne Gerdom (400p)–contains vampires, werewolves, and whatnot. A fun read, but incomplete (it’s the start of a new series)

AnimA (473p) by Kim Kestner — a great (if very heavy) book about ethics, moral, belief.

Freestyler by Katja Brandis (420p)– a really great book for young adults about body enhancement

Spiegelseele by Rebecca Pax (316p) — OK criminal story, not totally convincing

March

Die Liebe meines Vaters by Sabine Eichhorst (363p) – Loved this book, although the blurb is misleading

Feine Leute by Joan Weng (330p) — not a good book, unfortunately. The idea was nice enough, but it lacked everything, especially tension, which is a must for a detective story

The Child of the Moat by I. B. Stoughton Holborn — It’s on the book suggestion list here, so I suggested it for DP, and I loved it.

Die Herren der Grünen Insel by Kiera Brennan (959p) – a historical novel about 12th Century Ireland. Very violent stuff, similar to the ‚Game of Thrones‘ series, so nut my cup of tea, really.

Elathar – Das Herz der Magie by Rachel Crane (526p) aka Brigitte Melzer – a fantasy novel. Nicely done, but too light, and too predictable.

Im Jahr des Affen by Que Du Luu (288p) — a lovely YA ‚coming-of-age‘ book. Very funny.
