Book Tour: Ghost Owl
Ghost Owl - Nancy Schoellkopf

Ghost Owl is a story of Mariah Easter. Will she find out about her potential and learn about herself? She seems to struggle with her gift. I love the fact that Nacy show us a way into the afterlife and that maybe we are all reincarnate or we move through space and different dimensions of space.

 

Is everything an illusion or is it something as we see what want to make or see what we want to see? Is life as we see it or is what we think it is. Could it be that there are different parts of world that we can travel to any dimensions we want to and choose to live in the dimension where were born or do want to go higher. Is there nothing in this world, we do not exist. We are in body to experience that lifetime but then shred it and go to another life or travel somewhere else.

 

As we travel though Mariah Journey, is death even real? Nancy has you guessing and trying to believe that maybe we come back and travel to dimension and live there. It just us making that choice. Are what we pass to the next life and experience higher. Mariah meets someone and what about this new gift and maybe smell she or essence she got. What tribe is part of and why? We learn some of this as we read about Mariah Easter and her journey.

Puuuhh.
Unorthodox - Deborah Feldman,Christian Ruzicska

Nachtzug, aloha. Presse & Buch betreten mit dem inneren Auftrag eine Schmonzette für die lange Zugfahrt zu kaufen und stattdessen dieses Buch mitgenommen, das schon länger auf meiner Bibliotheksliste stand. Das mit den Schmonzetten (woraus der Computer übrigens "Schonzeiten" macht :D So kann man es auch nennen!) muss ich wohl noch etwas üben...

 

Nun gut. Ich habe ein Interview mit Deborah Feldman in Deutschland Radio Kultur (seinerzeits) gehört, deshalb wusste ich schon was mich erwartet. Tatsächlich muss ich sagen, dass ich die Geschichten an sich gar nicht so schlimm finde, schlimm im Sinne von unerträglich zu lesen. Am Ende des Buches standen mir trotzdem nahezu durchgehend Tränen in den Augen. Der Wandel von Kind zu Frau ohne dass die Frau (bzw. das Kind) lernt, was Frau sein mit allen Aspekten bedeutet oder sein kann ist für mich ein ziemlicher Schlag in die Magengrube. Die Vorstellung, dass einem der eigene Körper fremd ist, beziehungsweise verheimlicht wird, empfinde ich als unglaublichen Missbrauch (Wo es in den Medien gerade rumort. Wo runter fällt das eigentlich?!). Das war für mich der eindrücklichste Teil des ganzen Buchs.

 

Ich habe gelesen, dass es einige gibt die den Wahrheitsgehalt dieses Buches anzweifeln. Nennt mich naiv, oder ich nenne diese einige naiv, doch selbst wenn die Autorin nicht bei der Wahrheit geblieben ist (aber warum sollte sie? Nur Wahrnehmung ist eine subjektive Sache, darüber lässt sich natürlich streiten), so fände ich es überhaupt nicht abwegig, dass eine solche "Parallelgesellschaft" existieren sollte. Traurigerweise.

 

Es ist wieder Zeit für Sir Huddleston Fuddleston und Osborn, dieses Schwein. Vorher höre ich mir jedoch vielleicht noch mal das Interview an.

Socrates in the City by Eric Metaxas
Socrates in the City: Conversations on "Life, God, and Other Small Topics" - Eric Metaxas

A series of talks on 'life, God, and other small topics,' this book is the thinking person's alternative to pop psychology and prosperity gospel (that will seem much more clever and applicable if you listen to the book).

 

Based upon other reviews, I can see that listening to the audio version of this book is much more enjoyable than reading the paperback. That makes sense, since the audiobook is a recording of the Socrates in the City events with different lecturers taking on a variety of topics before opening up the session to Q&A.

 

Listening to this made me think and added several new books to my TBR. Definitely worth a listen.

The Sound of Diamonds by Rachelle Rea

Opening in the Low Countries in the Netherlands in late August 1566, Rachelle Rea’s “The Sound of Diamonds” sets the stage for an interesting tale unfolding during the Protestant Reformation. This is not an oft-explored time period for Christian historical fiction, which makes “The Sound of Diamonds” all the more noteworthy. The two primary characters, Gwyneth Barrington and Dirk Godfrey, represent both sides of the denominational divide, the former being Catholic and the latter Protestant. Rea handles both perspectives respectfully and deals with the inner conflict that accompanies a growing and maturing faith.

Told in the alternating first-person viewpoints of both Gwyneth and Dirk, the story progresses at a quick pace. Despite a distressing first encounter months earlier, Dirk rescues Gwyneth from the convent where she has been staying as it comes under siege by Protestant raiders. The journey to return her to her home in England is fraught with dangers and perils, not the least of which is the condition of her own heart. Although the shift between characters in each chapter is slightly confusing, the plot unravels cohesively, flowing from one event to the next without interruption. This is a quick read. It is mostly a romance, and while the love story is perhaps somewhat overdone and advances too quickly, it is a clean, wholesome narrative. “The Sound of Diamonds” is the first book in a trilogy, and although it does not end on a cliffhanger, it prepares for the continuation of the series.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. A positive review was not required.
