Die drei Musketiere
Die drei Musketiere: Roman (Fischer Klassik PLUS) - Alexandre Dumas der Ältere

Intrigen, Duelle, unzertrennliche Freundschaften, erbitterte Feindschaften, ein machthungriger Kardinal, ein durchtriebene Milady de Winter - dieses Buch hat wirklich alles, was ein Abenteuerroman haben sollte und es hat einen riesigen Spaß gemacht, dieses zu lesen. Leichte Abzüge gibt es nur für die Figur des D´Artagnans, der zwischendurch doch ein paar fragwürdige Entscheidungen trifft, insbesondere was die Sorge um seine Freunde oder die Beziehung zu Milady de Winter angeht. Ich hatte zwischendurch das Verlangen, D´Artagnan leichte Schläge auf den Hinterkopf zu verpassen. Diese sollen ja bekanntermaßen das Denkvermögen erhöhen (und dies hat D´Artagnan, trotz der Beteuerung des Erzählers, dass er der schlauste von der Vierer-Truppe ist, meiner Meinung nach bitter nötig).

Aber wie gesagt, es hat richtig viel Spaß gemacht, "Die drei Musketiere" zu lesen und wer gerne einen Klassiker zur Hand nehmen möchte, dem kann ich dieses Buch wärmstens empfehlen.

Solo: Ein James-Bond-Roman (German Edition) - William Boyd,Patricia Klobusiczky

It's the first day of a new month, which basically means, it's summary time :) I chose some really good books last month and now I only have one book left to finish my goal to read 50 (for me new) books in one year!! I'm really sorry that I wasn't that active here on booklikes in the last couple of weeks, but a cold and quite a stressful time didn't leave much spare time and the little that I had, I just used to try to finish my book challenge. But let's get back to the books I read in November:

 

Die drei Musketiere (The Three Musketeers) by Alexandre Dumas - even though I chose the free kindle version, which sometimes was kind of exhausting to read, I absolutely enjoyed this book. I definitely needed to get used to the writing style, but in the end I think it actually benefited this book because it created a special feeling and transported me back into the time the story takes place in. 4 stars!!

 

Interesting Times by Terry Pratchett - once again a funny story about the wizzzard Rincewind. And even Twoflower, Cohen and the luggage. I concentrated a lot on the city watch books, but now that I have read this book I remembered how much fun the Rincewind stories are. I definitely need to continue with those books! 5 stars for an unbelieveable discworld book!

 

The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood - I don't know what I should write about this book... Margaret Atwood created an interesting book about a society that centeres around men and doesn't really value women. The story was quite thought-provoking and some aspects of this society really made me angry. The only thing I didn't like about this book...

was the openish end

(spoiler show)

btw I gave it 4 stars :)

 

Solo by William Boyd - Since I loved the books I've read from Boyd, I was quite curious about the newest James Bond novel written by him. One thing I can tell you: it's defintely not 100% James Bond like we know him from Ian Flemings books. But on the other hand, I recognized more James Bond characteristics than in Jefferey Deaver's Carte Blanche. It was an entertaining book about our favourite spy, so I gave it 3,5. But now that I think about it, maybe even 4 stars. Btw Boyds writing style was once again absolutely great!!

 

The Club Dumas by Arturo Pérez-Reverte - I haven't really finished this book, but there are only about 20 pages left, so it definitely counts as 'read in November' :) It's kind of difficult to say something about Club Dumas. On the one hand I quite enjoyed the story, but on the other hand I really had problems with this book. When I brought myself to start reading, I really liked the book, but I never had felt the need to continue reading. Throughout the book I never thought, that I really really need to find time to read, because I wanted to know how this book ends. The story was a little bit slow and only started to become gripping about halfway through. But after about 50% those things changed and now I'm kind of hooked, so I would give this book three stars so far.
