Shakespeares Erbin
If We Were Villains - Linda M. Rio

Das Theater ist ein wesentlicher Bestandteil im Leben der Amerikanerin M.L. Rio. Ihre erste Rolle übernahm sie in der ersten Klasse, entdeckte kurz darauf Shakespeares Stücke und entwickelte eine unsterbliche Leidenschaft für ihn. Sie studierte Englisch und Dramatik und zog nach ihrem Abschluss nach London, um am renommierten King’s College ihren Master in Shakespeare Studies zu machen. 2016 gewann sie zum 400. Todestag Shakespeares eine Reise zu Hamlets dänischem Schloss Kronborg und war die erste Person, die dort seit 100 Jahren übernachtete. Rio ist ein Shakespeare-Nerd. In den ersten Semestern ihres Masterstudiums begann sie, ihren Debütroman zu schreiben, der sowohl ihrer Begeisterung fürs Theater als auch für den alten Barden Ausdruck verleiht: „If We Were Villains“.

 

„Das Leben ist eine Bühne“ – für Oliver Marks und seine Freunde war dieses Sprichwort Realität. Ihre exklusive Ausbildung an der elitären Dellecher Kunsthochschule überzeugte sie davon, sich als Erben Shakespeares zu verstehen. Glorreiche Tage voller Verse und Dekadenz. Sie lebten und atmeten ihre Rollen, nahmen sie in Besitz, bis ihre Rollen auch von ihnen Besitz ergriffen. Sogar abseits der Bühne verkörperten sie die Charaktere, denen sie Leben einhauchten. Ihre Leidenschaft schweißte sie zusammen. Sie waren unzertrennlich, unbesiegbar. Doch in ihrem Abschlussjahr entflammte eine nie gekannte Rivalität. Ihre Lehrer_innen änderten die Besetzung und provozierten einen Konkurrenzkampf, der ihre Gemeinschaft vergiftete. Aus Freunden wurden Feinde und eines Morgens war ein Mitglied ihrer Clique tot. 10 Jahre später wird Oliver aus dem Gefängnis entlassen und kehrt nach Dellecher zurück, um die Wahrheit zu offenbaren. Noch einmal durchlebt er seine schmerzvollen Erinnerungen an die überreizten Monate, die in einer katastrophalen Tragödie endeten. Hat er das furchtbare Verbrechen, für das er büßte, wirklich begangen?

 

Es geschehen noch Zeichen und Wunder. „If We Were Villains“ ist streng genommen ein Krimi. Normalerweise sind mir Krimis zu langweilig. Dieses Buch hingegen ist mehr als ein schnöder Krimi. Es ist eine formvollendete Tragödie in Shakespeare-Manier, was wahrscheinlich das größte Kompliment ist, das man M.L. Rio aussprechen kann. Ich glaube, ihr Debütroman hätte dem alten Barden gefallen. Es ist ihr gelungen, in jeder Facette der Geschichte eine unvergleichliche Intensität einzufangen, die die frenetische Atmosphäre prägte. Die Strukturierung des Buches in Szenen und Akte unterstützte den Eindruck eines shakespeareesken Theaterstückes natürlich, aber ich bin sicher, dass dieser auch mit einer konventionellen Einteilung entstanden wäre, weil die Figuren in bedeutendem Maße dazu beitragen. Shakespeares Stücke zeichnen sich unter anderem dadurch aus, dass seine Figuren innerhalb sehr kurzer Zeit ein überwältigendes Wechselbad der Emotionen durchleben. Diese erratische Sprunghaftigkeit ist M.L. Rios Charakteren ebenfalls eigen. Olivers Clique lebte in einem Shakespeare-Stück. Sie führten Dialoge in Zitaten und ließen sich völlig von der komprimierten Darstellung menschlicher Beziehungen vereinnahmen. In der elitären Umgebung der Dellecher Kunsthochschule verloren sie den Kontakt zur Realität. Die Schule wirkte auf mich beinahe wie eine Sekte, denn Oliver und seine sechs Freunde wurden in dem Empfinden, dass eine Welt außerhalb ihrer Mauern nicht existent oder zumindest irrelevant ist, subtil bestärkt. Ihre Ausbildung war ihr Universum; Dellecher war ihr Heim, ihre Freunde waren ihre Familie und Shakespeare war ihre Religion, der sie mit kompromissloser Opferbereitschaft huldigten. Die uneingeschränkte Selbstverständlichkeit, mit der sie ihre Rollen einnahmen, war geradezu unheimlich. Mir war nicht immer klar, wo die Rolle aufhörte und der Mensch begann. Ihre Mimikry war vollkommen bis zur Selbsttäuschung und beeinflusste die Dynamik ihrer Gruppe maßgeblich. Eine Umbesetzung seitens ihrer Lehrer_innen störte das sensible Gleichgewicht zwischen ihnen und ihre Freundschaft wankte. Bis zum Ende des zweiten Akts lag die Spannung von „If We Were Villains“ folglich darin, herauszufinden, welches Mitglied der Clique den Tod finden würde. Danach ist die bestimmende Frage, wer schuldig ist. Meine Verdächtigungen variierten, lediglich den Protagonisten Oliver zog ich nie in Betracht. Sein unterstützendes Wesen, das Wesen einer Nebenrolle, das sich allerdings ausschließlich auf ihre Gemeinschaft bezog, zeichnete diese Möglichkeit für mich als unvorstellbar. Der Tod des Mitglieds und die resultierenden polizeilichen Ermittlungen zwangen die Clique in eine Lage, in der sie nicht mehr fähig waren, ihre Rollen aufrechtzuerhalten. Der enorme emotionale Druck zerrte die Persönlichkeiten hinter den Rollen hervor. Ihre Gruppe brach auseinander, weil sie nicht länger funktionierten, was Oliver 10 Jahre später, nach seiner Inhaftierung, durchaus bewusst zu sein scheint. Durch seine rückblickende Erzählung erfasst M.L. Rio den Niedergang der sieben Jugendlichen eindringlich und vermittelt glaubhaft, dass sie sich gegenseitig zugrunde richteten. Niemand konnte ihnen etwas anhaben – nur sie selbst.

 

„If We Were Villains“ ist der vermutlich beste Krimi, den ich je gelesen habe, weil sich das Buch eben nicht wie ein Krimi anfühlte, sondern wie ein waschechtes Shakespeare-Stück. Der Mord ist lediglich ein einzelnes Puzzleteil in dieser berauschenden Erzählung von Leidenschaft, Besessenheit und Hingabe. Die psychologisch komplexe, vielschichtige Darstellung einer komplizierten, prekären Freundschaft, die ausschließlich unter sehr spezifischen Bedingungen überlebte und eskalierte, sobald sich diese Bedingungen änderten, beeindruckte mich und hätte den alten Barden stolz gemacht. M.L. Rio darf sich meiner Meinung nach ohne Arroganz Shakespeares Erbin nennen – obwohl in ihrem Roman nicht alle Figuren sterben.

Read It and Weep by Jenn McKinlay
Read It and Weep - Jenn McKinlay

In this entry in the series, Violet La Rue is holding auditions for A Midsummer Night's Dream. The entire town is excited, and not just because many of them want a chance to shine onstage. It turns out that the role of Puck is going to be played by a friend of Violet's, a charming famous actor named Robbie Vine.

Lindsey doesn't want a part in the play, but she does agree to help with costuming. Meanwhile, Sully's helping build the set, and their friends hope that the close proximity will lead to them getting back together. There's definitely still a spark between them, but things become complicated when Lindsey finds herself drawn to Robbie. Sure, his personal life is a mess, but at least he talks to her and tells her how he feels. Unfortunately, something sinister is going on. Someone seems to want Robbie, and possibly anyone close to him, dead.

Mystery-wise, this was a bit weak. I correctly guessed the culprit a little more than halfway through the book and never saw any reason to change my mind. In fact, at one point I noticed a fairly obvious clue - the character made an offhand comment about an event that they shouldn't have known anything about. It took Lindsey quite a bit longer than me, but she finally noticed that comment and connected the dots, as well as a few minor ones I'd missed.

Relationship-wise, this book frustrated me. If it weren't for the library aspects (which were pretty decent this time around - a couple interesting stints at the reference desk for Lindsey) and the fact that this is one of the few series that I know people around me have read and that I can therefore talk to them about, I'd probably be quitting at this point.

I still believe that Sully breaking up with Lindsey at the end of the previous book was out-of-character for him, and this book didn't tell me anything that changed my mind. Sully's sister hinted that Sully had some deeper issues at play, but Lindsey stubbornly refused to let her tell her anything more, insisting that Sully had to tell her himself. Which, fine, except Sully's the quiet type who doesn't talk about himself much, so this left readers with nothing except "Sully dumped Lindsey because he thought her worry that her ex-fiance had been killed meant she still needed time to get over him." Never mind that it would have been weird and creepy if she'd been unmoved by the possible death of someone she'd known well, and never mind that Sully had spent the whole book up to that point taking Lindsey's fiance's presence and attempts to win her back in stride.

I remember rolling my eyes at Lindsey's worry, in the earlier books in the series, that she was reading more than she should into Sully's behavior, that he wasn't really attracted to her and it was all in her head. Still, I could understand it. Unfortunately, in this book she went right back to that state. You'd think she'd have gotten better at reading him - he was clearly still interested in her and displayed it in much the same way he had in the earlier books, only with the added awkwardness of the breakup standing between them.

The addition of Robbie Vine didn't make things better. I was fine with Lindsey having a bit of fun and flirting with him, but I was not on board with her seriously considering dating him. First, he was married. I hated how many of Lindsey's friends responded to that by saying "But only on paper!" Sorry, he was still married, had had years to see about getting a divorce, and never had. And his wife was in the play. It was a complication that Lindsey definitely didn't need. Second, his ex-girlfriend was also in the play and seemed to wish that they'd never broken up. Another complication Lindsey didn't need.

The big plot twist near the end, and Lindsey's reaction to it, did not bode well for the next book in the series. I don't buy that all of this was necessary to keep Lindsey's romantic life fresh and interesting. There are ways McKinlay could have kept Sully and Lindsey interesting as a couple without any of this mess - something from Sully's past could have cropped up, or Lindsey's brother could have stopped by and either gotten along really well with Sully or clashed with him, or...anything but what McKinlay actually gave readers. The plot twist really irked me, and I couldn't understand why Lindsey wasn't more bothered by it.

Extras:

  • The Briar Creek Library Guide to Crafternoons
  • Readers Guide for Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
  • Card-making idea
  • Recipe for Nancy's Raspberry Petit Fours. Shockingly, although the book includes references to pumpkin squares, a recipe for them is not included.

Just saw Avengers: Infinity War.

I feel like I just read, in one sitting, every Nicholas Sparks book ever written plus a few that have yet to be. That ending? The studio has some massive brass balls. WTF What.The.Actual.Fuck?!

CODE TALKER: THE FIRST AND ONLY MEMOIR....By Chester Nez, Judith Schiess Avila
Code Talker: The First and Only Memoir By One of the Original Navajo Code Talkers of WWII - Judith Schiess Avila,Chester Nez

Code Talker: The First and Only Memoir By One of the Original Navajo Code Talkers of WWII

Chester Nez, Judith Schiess Avila

Paperback, 320 pages
Published August 7th 2012 by Berkley (first published January 1st 2011)
ISBN:  0425247856 (ISBN13: 9780425247853) 
also available in hardcover, Kindle, Audible Audio, and Audio CD
 
Reading Chester Nez's impression of his early life and military experience was a wonder read. There are books about the Navajo Code Talkers, as well as movies, but this is the only memoir. Using code talkers were kept confidential and top secret for quite a while.
 
A lot of military terms and such were used throughout the book. This is an important part of the book, but not being military, I struggled and sometimes skimmed these parts of the book. I was definitely more interested in Nez's personal side than the actual military tactic specifics.
