Reading list: Eastern and Central Europe

Created by: Themis-Athena's Garden of Books

Keeping track of the books on my TBR by Eastern and Central European authors or set in Eastern and Central Europe, by country, for purposes of my "Around the World in 80 Books" reading project.

As in my "Africa" list (http://booklikes.com/apps/reading-lists/974/africa), I have included the books I've already read in 2019, but no books read prior to this year.

Shout-out to Awogfli - Bookcroc (http://awogfli.booklikes.com/), who shared her extensive compilation of books by Eastern European women authors with me and thus inspired several additions to this list!

Weil Du mich gefragt hast, was Du ergänzen solltest hier meine Osteuropa Tipps - wenn mir noch was einfällt kommentiere ich weiter

Vladimir Sorokin, Russland - Manaraga
Sasa Stanisic, Bosnien - Wie der Soldat das Grammophon reparierte oder etwas anderes von Ihm
Marketa Pilatova, Tschechien Der Held von Madrid oder etwas anderes von ihr
Zdenka Becker, Slowakei und Wien - Samy
Sandor Marai, Ungarn - Die Glut
Andej Kaminski jetzt Polen - nächstes Jahr in Jerusalem

Wenn Du Science Fiction magst unbedingt was von Lem Stanislaw, Polen: Z.B. Der Unbesiegbare
Themis-Athena's Garden of Books
Herzlichen Dank! Stanišić, Pilátová, Becker und Kaminski habe ich hier ergänzt -- Lems "Solaris" und "Kyberiade" sowie Márais "Glut" waren schon auf der Liste (ich weiß, ohnehin schon ziemlich lang, deshalb sind einzelne Bücher leicht zu übersehen ...). Sorokin ist auch auf meinem Wunschzettel gelandet, allerdings zunächst einmal sein "Zuckerkreml". Für Russland habe ich hier auf BL i.ü. ein eigenes Regal, deshalb sind russische Bücher nicht auch auf dieser Liste (sie würden die Liste i.ü. auch vollkommen sprengen ... allein mein Russland-Wunschzettel ist weit über 100 Bücher lang!).

Solaris ist aber eines der langweiligsten Bücher und meiner Meinung nach das schlechteste von Lem ich empfehle Der Unbesiegbare oder Sterntagebücher oder der Futurologische Kongress..
Themis-Athena's Garden of Books
Notiert! :) Ich lese allerdings ohnehin sehr wenig SciFi -- egal, ob große Klassiker oder nicht -- so dass für Polen so oder so erstmal andere Bücher Priorität haben.

Ich fang am Wochenende mit einer feministischen Halb-Polin Margarete Stokowski an bin schon sehr gespannt
Themis-Athena's Garden of Books
Ich dann jetzt auch ... :)
Awogfli - Bookcroc
Ah supa und wie hat es Dir gefallen? - mir sehr gut bis auf ein paar strukturelle Probleme vor allem gegen Ende - also 4 Sterne vergebe ich
Themis-Athena's Garden of Books
Oh, sorry -- meinte nur, ich bin dann jetzt gespannt auf Deine Rezension! :) Aber 4 Sterne klingt ja immerhin vielversprechend ...
Awogfli - Bookcroc
:D ja diesen 2-teiligen Satz kann man natürlich so oder so interpretieren - Rezi folgt Sonntag oder Montag :-) bin gerade am basteln
Themis-Athena's Garden of Books
OK, freue mich schon!

Hab grad Kurzgeschichten von Iva Pekarova gelesen - Die Frau kann wirklich schreiben. Truck stop Rainbows habe ich nun auch so wie Du auf meine wunschliste gesetzt
Themis-Athena's Garden of Books
Oooh, gut zu wissen. Bei ihr war ich mir nämlich nicht ganz so sicher, und "Truck Stop Rainbows" war von der Beschreibung her das einzige Buch, das ich mir spontan vorstellen konnte, lesen zu wollen.
