Das Fünfte Zeichen // The Devil's Star!!!
Das fünfte Zeichen - Jo Nesbø

German and english review
First things first: I received this book through NetGalley.

 

Diesmal nur eine kurze und vor allem spoilerfreie Bewertung.

 

 

Ich bin so unheimlich froh, dass ich das Buch jetzt endlich hinter mir habe, dass liegt nicht an dem Buch an sich, sondern an einer besonderen Storyline, wenn ihr die Bücher lest, wisst ihr sicher was ich meine, wenn nicht, dann will ich nichts verraten. Aber es ist endlich überstanden, jetzt hab ich das Gefühl, dass ich irgendwie viel frischer in den Rest der Serie starten kann.

 

Den Fall fand ich wirklich richtig gut erzählt und auch wirklich spannend bis zum Schluss. Ich hatte zwar einen Verdacht, aber wie immer hab ich den zur Seite geschoben und am Ende war ich dem Ganzen doch näher als gedacht.

 

Am besten hat mich die Auflösung von der ein oder anderen Storyline gefallen, die in vorherigen Büchern schon angefangen wurde. Ihr wisst was ich meine. Ich dachte erst wir würden nicht sehr viel von Rakel und Oleg sehen, aber war froh, wie sich das im Laufe des Buches entwickelt hat. Es ist nicht wirklich ein Spoiler aber trotzdem VORSICHT: Der Moment in dem Oleg zu Harry Papa gesagt hat, hat bei mir für alle möglichen Gefühle gesorgt und obwohl die Situation angespannt war, hat es mich grinsen lassen wie ein totaler Idiot.

This time around it's just going to be a short and spoiler free review.

 

I'm just so very happy that I am finally done with this book, it's not about the book itself but one of the storylines. If you read the book, you know what I mean. If you haven't read it, I won't spoil anything. But I did it. It's finally done. Now I have the feeling that I can somehow start fresh and new into the rest of the series.

 

The case itself was really damn well told and kept me guessing until the very end. I can't say I never had a feeling but I always push it aside and at the end of it all, I always come pretty close.

 

What I loved the most, was that storylines from the books before were being wrapped up. You know what I mean. After the beginning, I didn't expect to see anything from Rakel and Oleg but I was so so SO happy how things developed throughout the book. It's not really that much of a spoiler but well, SPOILER, the moment when Oleg calls Harry dad, made me feel all the feels and even though the situation was super tense, I kept smiling like a total idiot.

Digging a Hole (OHellNo, #3) by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff
Digging a Hole - Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

 

 

He's the hero that you love to hate. She's the heroine you want to root for. Digging A Hole is hard to figure out, but an irresistible experience. Pamfiloff pulled a fast one. Nothing is as it seems. There's a little bit of everything in this story. The twists are rapid and never-ending. Giving away one would be like ruining them all. Don't blink. You might miss something. A MUST READ!

"Jackson Hole: Uneasy Eden", by Warren Adler
Jackson Hole, Uneasy Eden - Warren Adler

This is a collection of fictional short stories based on Mr. Adler’s experience as a long-time resident of little town nestled in the heart of the most beautiful mountain in Northwest Wyoming, the Grand Tetons. 

In each of the stories we find insights in what has happened by the modern invasion of folks to the area. Resorts have sprung rapidly and a new way of life came with it. Their presence brought clashed with the long cherished western customs. We can feel through the stories how the modern life has disrupted and turned their quiet world upside down. Wealth and the modern life changed things for ever.

You can find many editions of this book published over years, the first in 1997. I can only presume the stories are all the same. I am reviewing the version that has been sent to me by the author this past month. 

Each chapter is about a family that was born or moved to Jackson. Their stories are well-crafted and interesting albeit maybe a bit disturbing. A full range of emotions is brought to life to showcase how the valley’s culture was transformed by the constant pressure imposed by the new arrivals. Each of Mr. Adler’s fiction dissects Jackson Hole spectacular patina, its people and its tradition. Although considered short stories, everyone is long enough to have moved me to the core. I do feel sorry for the loss of life style but things changes. For the better or worst depends where you stand.

Die Fährte // Nemesis!!!
Die Fährte: Harry Holes vierter Fall - Jo Nesbø

German and english review
First things first: I received this book through NetGalley.

 

Inhalt: Der Osloer Kriminalbeamte Harry Hole jagt einen Bankräuber, der während eines Überfalls scheinbar grundlos eine junge Angestellte erschoss. Da wird er selbst in einen Mordfall verwickelt: seine ehemalige Geliebte wird tot aufgefunden, und Harry ist der Letzte, der sie leben sah. Er gerät nun selbst unter Mordverdacht und muss untertauchen, um auf eigenen Faust weiterermitteln zu können. Eine heiße Fährte führt in bis nach Südamerika.

 

Ich fand es ein bisschen schwieriger als sonst, in das Buch reinzufinden, vorallem weil ich es gleich nach dem letzten Buch angefangen hatte und einfach noch so wütend wegen Ellen war und einfach nicht darüber hinwegkommen wollte, was im Band davor passiert ist. Vor allem war ich jedes Mal wütend wenn Tom Waaler in dem Buch aufgetaucht ist, alles was er im Band vorher gemacht hat und alels was er in diesem Fall getan hat, ich war einfach zu wütend.

 

Dann die Tatsache, dass wir zwei Fälle hatten. Den Bankraub und Anna.
Ich war stellenweise dann wirklich total verwirrt, welcher Zeuge wegen welchem Fall befragt wurde. Es war mir manchmal einfach ein bisschen zu viel los. Allerdings waren beide Fälle wirklich spannend gemacht und hatten auch genug Wendungen, so dass ich absolut nicht wusste, was gerade was ist und wer was angestellt haben könnte. Es war bis zum Ende einfach sehr spannend.

 

Und dann mein absolutes Highlight, Beate. Und sie lebt noch. Sie hat das Buch überlebt. Was nicht so selbstverständlich ist, wenn man an andere weibliche Charaktere in den Büchern vorher denkt. Beate!!! ich hoffe, dass wir sie auch noch in weiteren Büchern sehen werden, denn sie ist mir ehrlich ans Herz gewachsen.

 

***

 

Summary: How do you catch a killer when you're the number one suspect? A man is caught on CCTV, shooting dead a cashier at a bank. Detective Harry Hole begins his investigation, but after dinner with an old flame wakes up with no memory of the past 12 hours. Then the girl is found dead in mysterious circumstances and he begins to receive threatening emails: is someone trying to frame him for her death? As Harry fights to clear his name, the bank robberies continue with unparalleled savagery...

 

I had a bit of trouble getting really into the book, mostly because I started it right after I finished the book before and I was still so angry about Ellen and I couldn't and didn't wanna get over what happened to her. Everytime I read Tom Waaler's name in the book, I got angry all over again, angry about what he had done in the book before and everything he did in this book.

 

Then we had two cases. The bank case and Anna.
To be completely honest, I got super confused sometimes and couldn't remember which witness got questioned for what case. Sometimes it just got a bit too much. BUT, both cases where super well done and had enough twists and turns, that I could never figure out what really happened and who did what. It was suspenseful until the end.

 

And then, my absolute highlight, Beate. And she is still alive. She survived the book. That is not a sure thing, when I think about all the female characters before her. Beate!!! I really hope we get to see her in the other books two, cause I love her and I want her around.

Broken Circle (Sirius Wolves #2) by Victoria Sue
Broken Circle - Victoria Sue

Took some notes while reading. Reporting back:


- The first 10% of the book is all about child birth. Not sure what's with refusing painkillers during 14+ hours of painful misery. I would rather be ready and alert for my babies and enjoy the experience. But to each its own. Not judging, just saying those 10% did feel like 14 hours.

 

- What I wanted when I started this installment was the evil doctor to come back. What I got was a hormonal gamma. like uber hormonal. 

However, Paul hinted that there is hope yet! Abuse and torture and not a drop of epidural in sight! =)

 

- The second case of TSTL kicks in around 40%. I am disappointed. It takes away from pain and torture because - honestly - it's self inflicted :/ Someone needs to put a leash on Aden and lock him in a cage for his own safety. Oh, wait! The good doctor, it seems, is the one with the right ideas!

 

- Nate is "innocent"! Hahaha, good one! Almost killed one person, and intentionally at that, then shot and killed another, conspired with the worst most evil doctor evah, not to mention that shady business with his own mother, and yet he is "innocent". I am about to die laughing here!
