Der Sandmaler

Leider viel weniger, als erhofft.


Die wundersame Reise eines verlorenen Gegenstands

Eine Reise bei der Michele sein eigenes "Ich" wiederfindet. Ein sehr schönes Hörbuch


Dann schlaf auch du

Spannend, schockierend und furchtbar traurig. Ein sprachgewaltiges Buch, dass sich so richtig keinem Genre zuordnen lässt. Lesenswert!


Drei Tage und ein Leben

Ein beinahe poetisch anmutendes Psychodrama


Und es schmilzt

Selten so ein langweiliges Buch gelesen. 22 Euro hätten besser angelegt werden können. Leider.


Underground Railroad

Tief bedrückendes Portrait einer Gesellschaft! Das Buch war nicht immer schön, aber immer lesenswert.

    We are All Made of Glue

    When Georgie Sinclair meets her elderly neighbour Mrs Shapiro, this is the last thing she needed to make her life a complete mess. Her husband has just left her for another woman. Her son flees into a world of Armageddon and her job for a company which produces glue also is not really satisfying. But old Mrs Shapiro need her help. After an accident she is in hospital and due to her age, the vultures are on the watch for her house in a financially interesting area.What Marina Lewycka can do like hardly any other is creating characters which are so unique that they cannot compare to any other in the most positive way. Mrs Shapiro’s way of speaking, her one the one hand hard-boiled but on the other hand loving way of treating people, compared with her witty and clever mind make her a rather strange but hard not to love person. She definitely has known how to cope with life’s adversities. Georgie also gains character and profile through the novel, she grows with the responsibilities. What I found most interesting is the way her work on text related to all types of glue is mixed with the plot. Albeit a bit strange in the beginning, they make more and more sense. All in all, a novel full of extraordinary humour and great fun to read.
