Inhaltsangabe zu „Fates and Furies“ von Lauren Groff

Every story has two sides. Every relationship has two perspectives. And sometimes, it turns out, the key to a great marriage is not its truths but its secrets. At age twenty-two, Lotto and Mathilde are tall, glamorous, madly in love and destined for greatness. A decade later, their marriage is still the envy of their friends, but behind closed doors things are even more complicated and remarkable than they have seemed.

Vom Ende an

Eine kleine Besonderheit, der Stil, die Art die Geschichte zu erzählen. Gleichzeitig hat es sich mir aber seltsam entzogen.


Sieben Nächte

Das Werk schrammt an den Todsünden vorbei u ist purer Selbstmitleid eines Mannes, der denkt sein Leben ist mit 30 vorgefertigt u zu Ende!



Die Autorin besticht auch in diesem Roman wieder mit herrlicher Poesie und wunderschönen eigenen Wortschöpfungen.


Der Frauenchor von Chilbury

Mit "Der Frauenchor von Chilburg" ist Jennifer Ryan ein gefühlvoller, abwechslungsreicher Roman gelungen.



Emotional aufwühlend, tiefgründig, traurig und hoffnungsvoll...


Underground Railroad

Hier wird fündig, wer wissen will, wie das Böse seit Jahrhunderten in Köpfen und Herzen der Menschen überleben konnte.

    The perfect couple, the perfect love. Only twenty-two, Mathilde and Lotto see all the life and glamour ahead of them, both into the arts, they are destined to make their way to the top. But life is not that easy and success on Broadway does not come easily. So this easygoing love has to face hard times of marriage and especially the secrets that lie much deeper than both of them would ever expect. I found it rather difficult to find my way into the novel, it took some time to see through the narrative structure which springs backwards and forwards and thus reveals secret after secret and changing thereby the whole plot. In the end, you have got a completely different story from what you had in the beginning or the middle; this is not only astonishing, but rather fascinating. The main characters, besides Mathilde and Lotto, basically another friend and Lotto’s mother and much younger sister, are drawn in a very authentic and plausible way. Albeit the fact that Mathilde’s life seems to be rather strange and unique, you can imagine those people and you find traits in them that are inherent in the human nature and thus omnipresent in reality. The title seems, at first, to be chosen due to the alliteration, it sounds good and is easy to remember which might help selling the novel. But – and this was quite an astonishment – it is simply perfect for the novel. I was looking out for the fury for quite some time, but then it finally hit me like a hammer and the main character transformed into a Greed goddess like Nemesis who directs the way of the people around her. Not an easy novel to read, sometimes even hard to digest, but it is definitely worth the hardship.
