Inhaltsangabe zu „Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock“ von Matthew Quick

The incredible new novel from the author of Oscar-nominated THE SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK. For fans of THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME and THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER. How would you spend your birthday if you knew it would be your last? Eighteen-year-old Leonard Peacock knows exactly what he'll do. He'll say goodbye. Not to his mum - who he calls Linda because it annoys her - who's moved out and left him to fend for himself. Nor to his former best friend, whose torments have driven him to consider committing the unthinkable. But to his four friends: a Humphrey-Bogart-obsessed neighbour, a teenage violin virtuoso, a pastor's daughter and a teacher. Most of the time, Leonard believes he's weird and sad but these friends have made him think that maybe he's not. He wants to thank them, and say goodbye.

Ich bin sprachlos.

Stöbern in Romane


Sehen eindringliche Kurzgeschichten über das Leben in Nordkorea. Für mich als Europäerin kaum vorstellbar, so zu leben. Sehr empfehlenswert!


Die Tänzerin von Paris

Ein steter Bilder- und Gefühlsrausch!


Underground Railroad

Eine fesselnde Geschichte, welche die Railroad leider nur fiktiv beschreibt. Wer historischen Background erwartet, ist vielleicht enttäuscht


Sonntags in Trondheim

Ein ungewöhnliches Buch, der Schreibstil, die Familie, einfach alles ist seltsam, interessant, faszienierend und einfach ungewöhnlich.



Sklaverei, Identität, Heimat und Rassismus verpackt in einen großartigen Familienroman



Ergreifend und mit einer sympathischen Hauptfigur!
