Grindelwalds Verbrechen // The Crimes of Grindelwald!!!
Phantastische Tierwesen: Grindelwalds Verbrechen (Das Originaldrehbuch) (Phantastische Tierwesen und wo sie zu finden sind: Die Originaldrehbücher) - J.K. Rowling,Anja Hansen-Schmidt

german and english review (spoilerfree)

 

Ich werde meine Bewertung ziemlich kurz halten. Ich habe von dem Buch nur schlechtes erwartet, weil ich eigentlich nur negative Kommentare dazu gelesen habe. Beim selber Lesen, wurde ich wirklich positiv überrascht.

 

Ich hab es nicht so geliebt, wie den ersten Band. Aber ich fand es trotzdem wieder schön in die Welt einzutauchen und all die Charaktere wieder zu sehen, die ich im ersten Band geliebt habe. Vor allem Queenie, ich liebe Queenie so unheimlich dolle. Deswegen habe ich dem Buch auch Punkte abgezogen, weil ich nicht mit ihrer Storyline zufrieden bin. So absolut garnicht zufrieden. Ugh.

 

Ich weiß, dass das Ende bei vielen für Wut gesorgt hat, aber ganz ehrlich. Der Typ kann viel erzählen, ich glaub es erst, wenn es wirklich irgendwie bewiesen ist. LOL

I'm gonna keep my review short and sweet. To be completely honest, I was really scared starting the book, cause I only read negative reviews and I expected the absolute worst. But when I actually started reading it, I was pleasantly surprised.

 

I didn't love it as much as the first book. But I still enjoyed going back to the story and the world, and going back to the characters that I fell in love with in the first book. Especially Queenie, I just love Queenie so damn much. And that's why I had to reduce the rating, cause I seriously hate her storyline. Just no. Ugh.

 

I know that a lot of people are mad about the end, but seriously. This dude can say a lot of things, I will believe it when there is actually some real evidence. LOL

Phantastische Tierwesen und wo sie zu finden sind (Original Drehbuch) // Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (Original Screenplay)!!!
Phantastische Tierwesen und wo sie zu finden sind: Das Originaldrehbuch - J.K. Rowling,Anja Hansen-Schmidt

german and english review

 

 

Inhalt: Der Magizoologe Newt Scamander will in New York nur einen kurzen Zwischenstopp einlegen. Doch als sein magischer Koffer verloren geht und ein Teil seiner phantastischen Tierwesen entkommt, steckt Newt in der Klemme – und nicht nur er.

 

Ich wollte ja immer mit dem Buch warten bis ich endlich die Harry Potter Serie komplett gelesen habe aaaaber, ich wollte einfach nicht mehr warten.

 

Den Film habe ich vorher schon gesehen, deswegen war jetzt nichts in dem Buch wirklich neu für mich, trotzdem war es unglaublich schön es zu lesen, hat unheimlich Spaß gemacht und war wirklich wunderschön und magisch.

 

Ich liebe diese Welt einfach. Ich liebe die Charaktere. Newt, Tina, Jacob, und Queenie. Vor allem Queenie, ich liebe Queenie. Ich liebe jeden Moment zwischen Jacob und Queenie. AHHHH!!!! Ich liebe Jacob und wie er die Zauberwelt kennenlernt und alles zum Ende hin ist einfach so bittersüß.

 

Und dann natürlich Newts Koffer und dessen Innenleben, einfach so wunderschön magisch, die Welt darin, wie jedes der Tierwesen seinen eigenen Lebensraum hat.

 

Hab ich schon erwähnt, dass ich das Buch einfach nur magisch schön fand?!

 

***

 

Summary: When Magizoologist Newt Scamander arrives in New York, he intends his stay to be just a brief stopover. However, when his magical case is misplaced and some of Newt's fantastic beasts escape, it spells trouble for everyone…

 

I always wanted to read this book as soon as I finished reading the complete Harry Potter series buuuuut, I was tired of waiting.

 

I watched the movie way back when, so nothing in this book was really new to me, STILL, it was amazing to read it, it was fun, it was just beautiful and magical.

 

I love this world. I adore and love these characters. Newt, Tina, Jacob, and Queenie. Especially Queenie, I LOVE Queenie. I love the moment between Jacob and Queenie. AAAAAH!!!!! I love Jacob and how he discovers the magical world and everything towards the end of the book was just so damn bittersweet.

 

And of course Newts suitcase and what's in it, so beautiful, so magicals, that world inside where everyone of the beasts has it's own living space.

 

Did I mention that I think that whole book is just magically beautiful?!

THE LAST MOTEL by Brett McBean

They only wanted to stay one night.
But one night can last a lifetime at… THE LAST MOTEL.

A husband and wife…
A pair of petty criminals…
A young man…
And a perverse serial killer…

 

It’s Halloween night, and the Lodgepole motel is seeing more action than it has in years. The owner can feel trouble coming as she checks in each of the guests. None of them can shake the feeling of déjà vu as they meet, and start to get to know each other. They’ll soon find out they are all linked by events that happened earlier that night – each link/event being more fukked up & twisted than the last!

 

Full review posted HERE.

My bad
Storm of the Century: An Original Screenplay - Stephen King

I`d forgotten why I'd skipped this one the first time and I dove in again decided to finish. It's a screenplay. I hate reading plays. I slugged through several of Shakespeare's and a couple of other authors' and managed to enjoy myself through on the brillancy of their dialogue alone, but I can't help the want to enjoy them in their meant form each time.

 

This lacked the nuanced lines that could make it worth reading as it is, and I didn't much care for the story line either. The idea is interesting, bad choices all around, comunity, greater good, "paying as you go", and the resolution was unexpectedly mercyful (it could have gotten a lot more uggly, either choice taken, but it works with the idea of good type of comunity). It still fell a bit short for me. Flat. As in, I didn't much care. Which could well be the format delivery, so thus the title.

Storm of the Century: An Original Screenplay - Stephen King

I watched the miniseries a long time ago (on VHS, to give you an idea), so I had a vague idea of what Storm of the Century was about going into this, but when I saw a copy in the Little Free Lending Library, I felt like I had to give it a try.

 

This was just mediocre for me. I have only read one other book by King (The Green Mile), but I feel like the screenplay format didn't work as well as King's novels. It was really drawn out, but not all that suspenseful. By the end, I was just pushing through to finish it rather than because I really cared what happened (which ended up being kind of predictable anyway). I think this format didn't allow King to do what he does best, actually write and describe and create. It fell flat for me.

 

The story itself was alright. And the characters were pretty well-developed, which King said in the introduction that he was nervous about in his attempt to create a whole community. So that was a success.

 

The biggest issue for me was the format. King just wasn't able to describe scenes in a way to make them horrific or suspenseful. I was able to visualize them, but in the end they fell flat.
