Book 7: Spur 24, by Wolfgang Kaes

This was pretty much a run-of-the-mill German crime story, rather decently done.

Book 8: The Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club, by Dorothy L. Sayers

Just needed to add one more to my LPW re-read ;-) This was my first LPW ages and eons ago, and I love that I am still discovering new things even after all those years. This time it really struck me that Ann Dorland seems like a very early version of Harriet - did anyone else feel that way?

Book 9: Sternstunden der Menschheit, by Stefan Zweig

This book. Oh this book. It's a set of fourteen historical miniatures, but this is really not that important. I fell in love with the language. It's German at its most powerful, most beautiful imaginable. It's forceful, dreamy, poetic, just slightly antiquated - it's just aweful, in the original sense of that word. Google-fu tells me it's been published in English as Decisive Moments in History or Tides of Fortune, but I'm not sure if a translator could fully do that language justice. I know I couldn't, but then I'm not a native speaker of English.

Book 10: 1913: Der Sommer des Jahrhunderts, by Florian Illies

This book had the great misfortune that I read it back-to-back with the Stefan Zweig and it just ... fell short. It's a pleasant enough read, even witty - it's basically a collection of anecdotes of things that happened throughout the year 1913, and how some of them were a cultural climax of the 20th century. It's a very intriguing premise, and it was decently enough executed - but after the Zweig, the language just felt flat and the tone too familiar and chummy. But I think I'd have liked it better if I'd read it at another time. (The English title, apparently, is 1913: The Year Before The Storm, if anyone is interested.)

Book 11: Märzgefallene, by Volker Kutscher

Another German crime story, this time the fifth in a series set in 1920s/30s Berlin. This one takes place just after the Nazis came into power, and though the murder mystery was a bit confusing and there were some historical details I side-eyed, the description of the atmosphere of suspicion and dread was well done, very chilling and eery. I don't think there's an English version though.

Book 12: Der Schieber, by Cay Rademacher

Another German historical crime story, this one set in 1947 Hamburg, second in a series I started last year. I'm not too keen on the narrative voice, but the story is pretty interesting and I like the amount of details, so I'm going to get the third one from the library as well.

Book 4: Bluestockings, by Jane Robinson

Caroline lent me this book, about women in British academia 1869-1939, and it was really fascinating. The author meticulously dug through all sorts of experience reports, from interviewing old students in those cases where they were still alive, to diaries, letters, etc. A beautiful picture of so many women dedicated to learning and self-fulfillment. My problem with this book was that it got too anecdotal at times. Robinson recounted what she'd learnt with great passion, but I think there might have been more coherence in the way she ordered things - for one thing, it's all divided up in chapters, but I couldn't always make out what one chapter's point was supposed to be compared to the previous. Also, sometimes she bundles things together too much and seems to forget, over the common theme of studying women, that there is actually a pretty great difference in external circumstances between 1869 and 1939 and that people's experiences can't just generalised over seventy years. But still, a very enjoyable read.

Book 5: Busman's Honeymoon, by Dorothy L. Sayers

Okay, so, uhm, obviously I love this book. I love how we know see Peter's and Harriet's love for each other play out, see them painfully and tenderly navigate a relationship and all that and I'm absolutely grateful we got to see those scenes. But, it's just not Gaudy Night-like. It's top-notch and all that, but Gaudy Night just is its own league. What I love very much about this book is that you get a real sense of the scenes and fast-paced dialogue and such, from the theatre play it was originally (and boy would I love to see that play) but that also means that some of the epilogue bits feel a bit ... tacked on (and conversely, some of the dialogue scenes earlier on feel almost too-fast paced for a novel, and a bit to much like fishing for a punchline)? Also I get that it's a real break-through for them in the end that Peter manages to ask Harriet for help, and those scenes are really wonderfully touching, but it's a bit depressing that they bond over an execution ... But I don't want it to sound as if I'm not liking this book, I am, I'm loving it in fact, just ... I would have loved to have read Gaudy Night Pt II.

Book 6: The Shooting Party, by Isabel Colegate

That's the book that I was ranting about earlier this week. It got better, it was quite an okay read in the end. There were a few bits that I really liked, like how the author managed to describe what I'd call consensual adultery - i.e. sort of like an Edwardian open marriage - with having the partners have respect for each other. I also thought that the climax of the story was fairly neat and sort of just put well together. I just didn't think it was more than just a good read - and quite apart from the egregious error that I mentioned earlier (that, in the end, had no influence whatsoever on the plot, so yeah, whatever) it was fairly obvious that the book was written in the 1980s and trying too much to pretend it was written in 1913.

Book 2: Gaudy Night, by Dorothy L. Sayers

Hm, yeah, I don't know whether I can say anything new about this since I discussed it before ;-) Oh yeah: HELL YES INTELLIGENCE *IS* SEXY. Also, I just love, love, love so many little details in this book and while reading I always love looking forward to them. Like when Harriet realises that Peter took her gown per accident, and then decides it doesn't really matter. Because it also signifies that Harriet realises - and that she realises Peter saw it this way all along - that as far as education and university rank go, they are equals, and that they could meet as equals in a marriage. Or when Miss de Vine tells Harriet it's bloody obvious she's in love with Peter. Or about every time Peter is happy when Harriet doesn't rebuff him. And the punt scene of course. So much the punt scene. I always have to restrain myself almost physically not to skip ahead to the punt scene and Peter's underlying elation afterwards. Also, Katharine was right, of course now I have to read Busman's Honeymoon too. Also it's made me all excited about the book about the development of university education for women that I borrowed from Caroline but haven't started yet, because Gaudy Night always makes me wish I could attend an Oxford women's college in the 1930s.

Book 3: The Secret Life of Bletchley Park, by Sinclair McKay

For all intents and purposes, this should be #2 because I read all but the last ten pages or so before I started Gaudy Night. It was a very interesting read and quite illuminating in some ways. (I also realise that some of the Bletchley allusions I made in Blackout wouldn't really have worked that way, but since I never named Bletchley in the story, I think I can get away with that :D) One thing I missed a little was - since I used to be quite proficient in Maths in another lifetime - a more mathematical analysis of how the codes were cracked and how the enigma encoding and decoding actually works. I had the feeling the author was a bit out of his depths there. But I can't really find a fault with that since the book never promised anything mathematical ;-) I'll just have to find Simon Singh's book on secret codes and then see if maybe the library has something more about enigma codes. I'll probably not get all of it but I'd like some more mathematical insights all the same. But apart from that, it was a really fascinating book! Thanks Caroline for lending it!

So I read Longbourn over Christmas. It was the last book of 2014 I read and since I plan to make booklist posts again in 2015, I want to start by talking about this one.

My feelings are ... complicated. It's not bad or anything, it's just ... I probably have very high standards when it comes to anything Austen-related, and it fell short. There are parts of it that are modelled very closely on the novel, and parts of it that are more independent. From talking about it with Caroline, I gather she liked the independent parts better - I'm torn. I think if it'd been a non-JA novel, I really would have liked those parts fine. They were quite catching, and fascinating, and also a little heart-breaking.

However, since it was a JA-novel, I found them sort of - not exactly jarring, just slightly out of place. I did like the JA-parts. There were some very interesting insights into what might have gone on behind the scenes of P&P and how much the world of P&P really was a world of servants. However, while a certain dreariness is realism, I thought that the author - although most of her period research seems to have been extensive - took a bit too much of the dreariness of P&P'05. Especially compared with the army of servants that she has populate Pemberley, Longbourn as she describes it can't be much more than a hovel. It was A++ gritty but overdone. Also I thought that the bit with Pemberley at the end was too rushed. However, the actual ending was quite sweet and I also liked the characters a lot, as well as the main romance.

So, I guess my overall recommendation would be, don't necessarily buy it but if you can lay your hands on it through library etc means, or as an e-book offer, it's an interesting take on P&P.

(I may not be getting the order right but who cares, eh?)

61: Nathaniel Philbrick, Mayflower: A Story of Courage, Community and War

Rather interesting look into the beginnings of the New England colonies, especially as I didn't really know a lot about them and Philbrick takes pains to use several, differing accounts, and also from the Native Americans.

62: Susan Hill, The Pure in Heart
63: Susan Hill, The Risk of Darkness
64: Susan Hill, The Vows of Silence

Hmm, well, I was pretty positive about her first but I think they're not that good as a series. And it's all pretty gloomy and lots of triggering topics like children dying, child abductions, suicide, euthanasia. I don't think I'd recommend them very much.

65: Sophie Kinsella, I've Got Your Number

This on the other hand, was a fluffy, fast-paced romp that really worked both the ridiculous footnotes and telling the story partly through text messages.

66: Terry Pratchett, Masquerades
67: Terry Pratchett, Lords and Ladies

Better than Snuff, both, but I still liked Witches Abroad a wee bit better.

68: Selden Edward, The Lost Prince

This is a sequel to The Little Book, the one that I was so in love with in early 2012. This is still good, and very riveting, and a wonderfully nice book - but The Little Book is just better, and quirkier in the premise. However, I liked that this one sort of explored the flip side of time travel (without resorting to time travel again, as in the first book, it's complicated): what to do with foreknowledge and already knowing your destiny? TLB also did that but this one's protagonist had a complete different view point on it all. I can't say much more without spoilering but seriously if you like time travel and thought experiments and history of the early 20th century, seek those two out. And definitely, whatever else to cover text says, read TLB before TLP!!!

69: Terry Pratchett, Carpe Jugulum

I really liked the vampires but I'm not sure I really got all the Granny Weatherwax bits.

70: Alan Bradley, The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie

Really liked this. So quirky. It's like if Sherlock Holmes were a girl and 12 years old and living in the 1950s. Have the next three books from the library but not started yet.

71: Nora Roberts, High Noon

Pretty much standard Roberts fare, of which I think I've read too many this year ;-)

And unless I've forgotten any that's all books for this year. I won't deny that 71 is a bit of a disappointing number after 96 of last year, but, well, no use crying over spilled milk.

55: The Hedge Knight, by G.R.R. Martin
56: The Sworn Sword, by G.R.R. Martin
57: The Mystery Knight, by G.R.R. Martin

Okay, so I could've counted them all as one book, since they're not only all very short, but actually, in the German edition, all in the same book. But, you know. Upping the counts ;-)

I rather liked this. So many allusions in the series to the backstories and now here are some. I'd like more! Only I'll not read them in German again because they translate all the names differently and it's totally confusing. But the library only had it in German, so, eh.

58: Witches Abroad, by Terry Pratchett

I liked this much better than Snuff. So much funnier in its whackiness, so much more stringent in its plot and just generally more fun. I have to conclude that maybe the middle Pratchetts are the best.

59: Slam, by Nick Hornby

This was a quick, fun, fast-paced read, on par with About A Boy.

60: The Various Haunts of Men, by Susan Hill

I totally wasn't prepared for this. I'd expected a cozy mystery, somehow - I don't know why, the book cover looked eerie enough - and that, it definitely wasn't. It was a total page-turner, mind you, and I raced through it and found it very good, but it's most certainly not cozy. And there's a total downer ending. Which made total sense plot-wise, and all, but went against all conventions of mystery novels, so quite a shock there and not the uplifting ending one expects. Still I'm going to find more by her.

No spoilers under the cuts, I was just trying to save some space!

41: J.K. Rowling: Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone/Harry Potter a l'ecole des sorciers

I think I mentioned before my feelings about this book ;-)

42: Robert Galbraith: The Cuckoo's Calling

Two thumbs up for JKR's new endeavour!

43: J.K. Rowling: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Nothing to say ;-)

44: Katherine Webb: The Misbegotten

It was okay, I guess, but it didn't thrill me. A regency mystery that seemed to thrive on misery for its creatures.

45: Val McDermid: The Vanishing Point

A really nice thriller although the ending was a bit far-fetched and abrupt.

46: Hilary Mantel: Wolf Hall

47: Melissa Anelli: Harry, A History

48: Deborah Harkness: A Discovery of Witches

49: Deborah Harkness: Shadow of Night

50: Terry Pratchett: Snuff

Meh. It was okay, I suppose, but I've come to expect more from Pratchett and this just ... fell short.

51: Hilary Mantel: Bring up the Bodies

See above for the first volume.

52: Kate Kingsbury: Fire When Ready

Read more... )

53: Kerstin Gier: Silber. Das erste Buch der Träume

Now Lydia is going to hate me because I have to say that I liked the beginning of this new fantasy YA trilogy even better than Ruby Red, and I have no idea when/if it will be available in English ;-) Or when the next volume is coming out. I hope soon.

54: Mischa Meier/Steffen Patzold: August 410. Ein Kampf um Rom

Read more... )

I feel that 54 is an awfully low number for November ... I did much better last year. :/

Uhm, the list got pretty long again because I forgot to update. So, eh, bullet points ;-)

27: Love Letters, by Katie Fforde (library)

Rather sweet, but a bit uninspired.

28: Joseph Andrews, by Henry Fielding (mine)

Great fun. Not perhaps as hilarious as Tom Jones, but an awesome parody of Pamela nonetheless.

29: Tribute, by Nora Roberts (library)

One of the Robertses I liked rather better. Very cute couple and I loved that it was treated very matter-of-factly that the heroine was a contractor. No 'she's a contractor in spite of being a woman!!!' nor any 'of course she's a contractor because she's a woman because long rant about feminism!!!' but simply 'she likes building houses and he draws comics and now on with the story!'

30: Sweet Danger, by Margery Allingham (mine)

A night-time re-read of an old favourite. The translation I own is pretty rotten, unfortunately, but still a favourite book.

31: The Glass Book of Dream Eaters, by Gordon Dahlquist (library)

Difficult to describe this book really. It's awesome fantasy imagining, great worldbuilding, compelling adventure, but there are some scenes where a sexual assault is described quite detailedly. It's not gratuitious and not graphic, but I can see how it could be triggering for some. Also, frequent mentions of sexual situations and lots of violence - all not gratuitious, but necessary for the plot, but probably not everyone's cuppa tea.

32: Now You See Her, by James Patterson (library)

Pretty formulaic, very cardboard-y characters and very weird plot, but very gripping and fast-paced read.

33: Without a Trace, by Nora Roberts (library)

One of the Robertses that I didn't really care about. It's one of her earlier works and it shows, IMHO. I couldn't care less about either of the couple and the plot lacked the wittiness of her later works.

34: False Impressions, by Jeffrey Archer (library)

Rather convincing thriller. I liked that it was all hingeing on 9/11 without there being any direct relation of the plot to any terrorist conspiracies or anything like that.

35: Blue Smoke, by Nora Roberts (library)

Liked this one better than the one I read before. The plot was a bit silly, but still nice to read.

36: Silent Voices, by Ann Cleeves (library)

Rather good mystery novel, as Cleeves usually delivers.

37: The Next Always, by Nora Roberts (library)
38: The Last Boyfriend, by Nora Roberts (library)
39: The Perfect Hope, by Nora Roberts (library)

I practically devoured this trilogy. IMHO, it's Roberts at her best. She's created a community that's so wonderful and perfect it's almost unbelievable, but I absolutely want to be a part of it. The only thing that was grating was the random capitalisation of nouns instead of giving things names - like The Patio or The Lounge. It was as if she'd written the books on my iPhone ;-)

40: The Lady of the Rivers, by Philippa Gregory (library)

Had to read this as background for The White Queen. Is like the series, good history crack. The only thing I don't like is that there is too much hindsight showing. Like when two characters discuss Margaret Beaufort at a time when she is ten or so and say 'don't worry about her, it's not as if *she* would ever give birth to a king' and stuff like that. Also there was not enough Margaret to hate but I have high hopes for The Kingmaker's Daughter, as soon as I'll get it from the library. Unfortunately they don't have The Red Queen.

Have now started a Harry Potter-re-read. Am reading the first one in French right now but will probably switch to English some time soon because it's slooooow going.

23: The Summer of Love, by Katie Fforde (library)

It was a nice read, in the end, but the beginning rather dragged so much that I almost wanted to give up. It got considerably better once the male love interest appeared and there was actual conflict and, you know, plot.

24: Pamela, by Samuel Richardson (mine)

This book. Oh this book. It is ... just so much. Hilarious on a whole different level.

There is so much I want to talk about, like the constant veneration of Pamela's virginity, and the constant worshipping at The Altar of Our Lady Pamela's Iron Hymen & The Riches of Mr B (Not That We Care About Money One Jot But Just For The Record He's Totally Loaded). Or how Pamela's employer is supposed to be evil and I'm supposed to think him the vilest of men for his attempts on Pamela yet I blame him most for not smothering the stupid girl at the earliest opportunity.

I suppose I would find the book quite infuriating in parts if it weren't so hilarious and overwrought that I couldn't take it serious at all, but it would probably be either spoilerific or boring if you haven't read it, so I'll leave it at saying that in spite of all that, it was an oddly compelling read and I can see why it was the 18th century's Twilight, of sorts.

25: Wicked Business, by Janet Evanovich (library)

It would be moot to deny that Janet Evanovich writes formula, and this new series really is nothing else but Stephanie Plum with just some bit of the supernatural sprinkled over it. But while she does write formula, she does it good, and this was a quick, witty, quirky read - exactly what one needs after reading Pamela.

26: Angel Falls, by Nora Roberts (library)

This really had all the makings of a good Roberts, with a quirky Wyoming community and a very realist heroine and a gripping mystery. For a long while I couldn't fathom why I didn't really warm to it, but I think it's because the male love interest and I just have no chemistry. It's not that he's horrible or anything, he just doesn't do it for me, somehow. Too pastiche, perhaps, or maybe I'm just not that into him. Otherwise, it was a good enough read, but I've read Roberts' I liked better.
lizzardgirl: (books)
18: A Storm of Swords, by GRR Martin (mine)

19: A Feast for Crows, by GRR Martin (mine)

20: A Dance of Dragons, by GRR Martin (mine)

I'm planning a separate "Song of Ice and Fire and why you want to read it!" post so this just here to complete the statistics ;-)

21: Chasing Fire, by Nora Roberts (library)

This book reminded me why I like reading NR so much. It's because she just has a gift for writing groups of people in such a way that you want to belong there. Whether it's, as here, firefighters in the wilderness, or as in other books, friends in a wedding business, or dog rescue units, or what-not, she can write these groups in such a way that you really feel how much they depend on each other, how much they rely on each other and how they just are a unit and you want that too and love being a part of it through the book. They're open and accepting and tease each other and all and it's just awesome. I mean, this book is about firefighters jumping out of planes to battle with bushfires and I still wanted to be in that group. The mystery bit was a bit weak, I guessed in advance who would be revealed to be the baddie, but that didn't really matter because I loved the interactions between the characters so much.

22: XO, by Jeffrey Deaver (library)

Okay, so when I was younger, I was a big Deaver fan, but his latest books ... I don't know. Either it's that I'm just so jaded, or I know his shtick by now, or he just can't write anything original anymore, but this one was so utterly foreseeable it got really boring and I didn't care about any of it. I'll probably read any new book of his anyway because they remind me of how awesome I found his books when I was a teenager, but I'm not feeling it anymore.
lizzardgirl: (books)
16: George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones (mine)
17: George R.R. Martin, A Clash of Kings (mine)

Both re-reads.

And I must say, as unwilling as I was to be dragged into it all AGAIN (took weeks of my life last year :P ) they definitely hold up for a re-read. In fact, now that I know what's going to happen (roughly, there's so much happening, one is bound to forget stuff) it's really awesome how much foreshadowing there is. That is buried amidst so much other stuff that you never noticed it the first time round, but whenever something unexpected happened that punched you in the gut, you still had the feeling it made sense and now I know - it's because it was all foreshadowed and you probably picked it up subconsciously. It's unbelievable how much work must have gone into these books.

The TV series is not bad (apart from some parts ... *coughFlorencebloodyNightingalecough*) but these books are a whole 'nother league of worldbuilding and plot-crafting.

Needless to say I'm already knee-deep in Book 3.

Oh and if you want to share Thoughts about the series do so in the comments!! Expect spoilers for books and TV series there!
lizzardgirl: (books)
12: Ordinary Thunderstorms, by William Boyd (library)

This was a rather good thriller, very gripping and with an ultimately rather surprising resolution. The main mystery was a bit foreseeable, but the way the protagonist interacted with it made it rather worth reading. Some violent bits were a bit gruesome but not too graphic.

13: The Magician's Nephew, by C.S. Lewis (mine)

Well this is so far all that I've got in my great Narnia-read (got distracted ...). I didn't like this as well as The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (the only other Narnia I've read so far) but it made sense as a prequel and explained some things. The Christian theme was very obvious but I liked that it wasn't in-your-face or anything as unfortunately so often happens.

14: Next of Kin, by John Boyne (mum's)

I didn't like it as much as The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, or my absolute favourite of his, The Absolutist, but it was much better than Thief of Time and a rather good read. Very nice setting in the abdication crisis. The bit that bugged me most that some very obvious things were sloppily researched - like the wife of Sir Roderick Bentley skips between being called Lady Bentley and Lady Jane, or someone saying that Prince Albert being suspected of being Jack the Ripper when Albert had been dead for almost 30 years by then and it was his grand-son who was suspicious. It had no bearing on the story at all but it irked me because it's so easy to look up.

15: Waiting for Sunrise, by William Boyd (library)

This reminded me of The Little Book but there was no supernatural angle here. It's a rather good spy-thriller and an interesting take on the First World War. The protagonist's sex-craze is a bit annoying but then this *is* a novel about Freudian psychology so it's only to be expected I guess. What really irked me was the constant skips between first person and third person narration for no apparent reason, because they were both from the protagonist's point of view.

Now re-reading Game of Thrones even though I didn't mean to ... I blame Shem! She also makes me rant about the tv adaptation and stupid Florence Nightingale!Mary Sue that ruins the complete plot! Grrr!

Heribert Schwan, Die Frau an seiner Seite. Leben und Leiden der Hannelore Kohl. (library)

A resounding blah is my judgment. I had had high hopes for this book because it'd been praised very much in the media, and I'd been hoping for an insight into a complicated character, the wife of a Chancellor who in sixteen years saw lots of defining political moments, a woman who by all accounts had a complicated childhood and could have achieved greatness of her own, yet had a very complicated relationship with her husband and lots of personal weaknesses.

Instead, this was ... well I collected a list of adjectives while reading. Plump, superficial, uncritical, fawning, ingratiating, sloppy academic work, unreflected, unstructured. The only part that was really handled with any sort of dexterity was the discussion of her illness, but that also took only a small part of the book. The rest of it read more or less like Mr Collins writing a biography of Lady Catherine based only on those things she told him about herself. Bah. So much to my resolve to read more non-fiction for educational purposes. What was I supposed to learn from this?
