Schönes Cover, schöner Zeichenstil, aber die Story ... na ja
Ten Count. Bd.1 - Rihito Takarai

Der Zeichenstil ist echt schön und auch die Aufmachung des Covers ist wirklich ... hach. (Ich hab wieder die totalen Herzchenaugen deswegen, haha.) Nur was mich leider gestört hat, war, dass es sich so nach einer 0815-Schablone angefühlt hat von der Story her. Ich meine nicht damit das Problem von Shirotani, sondern, dass es so schnell abgehandelt worden ist, dass er für sein Therapeuten Gefühle aufbaut und der eben halt auch diese Andeutungen so super schnell macht (gefühlt schon am nächsten Tag, als sie sich wiedergesehen haben).
Es war mir halt alles etwas zu schnell, wobei ich verstehen kann, dass in einem YAOI eben keine hundert Roman-Seiten lang es um das Kennenlernen gehen kann und alles ... Aber, ich konnte es nicht so nachvollziehen, wie ich es gerne getan hätte. Und nicht zu vergessen dieses "Da muss jetzt Drama kommen, damit der Leser sich den nächsten Band holt!"-Pseudo-Drama. Das war mir auch etwas too much bzw. unplausibel. Aber zum Glück habe ich mir gleich alle drei Bände im Buchladen gekauft und kann somit den nächsten Anfangen und das Ziel von "Neugier auf den nächsten Band" hat erfolgreich gefruchtet bei mir :D

(Ich bin gerade so fertig im Kopf, dass es mir leid tut, wenn meine Meinung hier ohne Sinn und Verstand rüberzukommen scheint, aber ich hatte etwas Stress auf Arbeit und 7 Tage durchgearbeitet ^^")

Saturday Public Library Book Haul: June 26, 2014
The Public Library: A Photographic Essay -
The Great American Documents: Volume 1: 1620-1830 - Ruth Ashby
Star Trek: The Manga Ultimate Edition - David Gerrold,Troy Lewter,Wil Wheaton
Batman '66 Vol. 1 - Jeff Parker,Various

A nice haul this weekend. We are in the middle of the summer reading program here. I will try to scan one of the cards for folks to have a look. The haul this week was mostly graphic novels, but I got some nonfiction as well.

 

*The Public Library is one I heard about in a couple of places. I always enjoy photography books, and books about libraries, so this is a nice combination. I found this in the new books shelf of the library.

 

*The Great American Documents is new to me. I also found this one in the new books shelf of the library. Part of the reason I picked it up is that Ernie Colon did the illustrations. For me, Ernie Colon is known from the graphic novel adaptation of the 9/11 report, which I have read. This books covers the time period of 1620 to 1830, and the book is part of a series, so I hope the library gets the others.

 

*Star Trek: The Manga Ultimate Edition. I had seen volumes of the series back when Tokyo Pop put them out before the company went bust. While I am not a huge fan of the original series (I am more a Star Wars boy, but I do like Star Trek well enough), the manga adaptation seemed like a neat thing, so I was glad to find this in the graphic novels shelf.

 

*Batman '66 Volume 1. I noticed DC Comics has a series on the "classic" Batman from the 60s. I grew up watching that show on television, so this is a nostalgia trip for me. From glancing at it, it seems to catch the essence of the show. Looking forward to reading this one, taking a trip down memory lane, and reliving good old days.

Click on the link to visit my blog, The Itinerant Librarian,  and check out the details. If you so moved, feel free to join me in reading some mangas, graphic novels, and/or video game novels this year.

#FridayReads August 23rd
What Do Women Want?: Adventures in the Science of Female Desire - Daniel Bergner
The Silver Linings Playbook - Matthew Quick
Americanah - Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Hello invisible readers, 

 

So welcome to another edition of #FridayReads! I didn't publish any reviews or special content this week but I read quite a bit (yaaaay!) 

 

I bought and finished What do Women Want?: Adventures in the Science of Female Desire by Daniel Bergner. You can expect a book review soon. I actually enjoyed it despite some of the bad reviews out there. 

 

I also finished Silver Linings Playbook, the movie. You can expect yet another book review. 

 

Finally, I started Americanah by Chimamanda Adichie, which is supposed to explore the identification issues faced by Africans in the Diaspora, like myself. I had previously read Half of a Yellow Sun -- an excellent, moving and compelling novel on the Biafran War

 

The great thing about this blog is that I can write at my own pace. Therefore, though I really want to put out all these book reviews, it may take me some time to type them out.  But yes, there will be four upcoming reviews and that is very exciting stuff. 

 

Also, I wanted to mention that some people in real life recommended me some mangas and graphic novels to read. They will be on my TBR list which is ever expanding. 

 

That's it from me xox, S.
