Mit anderen Augen

Ungewöhnlicher Mix aus Reiseberichten, Lebensratgeber, Erfahrungsberichten. Insg. ein gutes, vielfältiges, bereicherndes Leseerlebnis.

Interessanter Roman über einen leider viel zu wichtig gewordenen Großkriminellen

    Summary The novel "The Country of Last Things" is about a young woman named Anna Blume who is looking for her brother William into an unnamed city. In this town no industry takes place and the jobs of the population is to collect garbage. She herself lives in that time on the streets as an "object hunter" which is a better job than "garbage collecter" but it is also very dangerous. Many dead bodies are on the streets and also the people try to commit suicide because they can't handle their situation anymore in that city. The dead bodies have to be burnt and it isn't allowed to burry them because they are used as the fuel for the energy of the city. Anna meets on her journey a lot of different people and gets to know that many people aren't like how they behave in the first view. She gets to know Sam with whom she falls in love with but there are a lot of problems. Opinion I have to say that I don't really like the novel because I don't like the character Anna and also I don't understand how she behaves and so on. In the beginning I think the novel was good because of the fictional city and all the stories behind the citizens but in the end I didn't want to read on and it was horrible to read it till the end. So I just give 2/5 because the idea was great but the end of the novel has destroyed everything because it also hasn't got a good ending in my opinion.
