Ich liebe ausgefallene originelle englischsprachige Hörbücher. Fantasy und Stieg Larssen sind nicht mein Ding.
This book is one of the longer ones, and I found it enjoyable from beginning to end, spanning a time period of over one hundred years. It leads you back and forth, changing perspectives and time periods, never losing its suspense. A beautifully told (and read) family saga!
Well, to start with, I selected this book mainly for the reader, as I am a huge fan of Stephen Fry's, and did not know anything about the autor, or the book. I thoroughly enjoyed myself as I found the storyline original, witty, interesting, even educational and entertaining at the same time. It did not feel like a children's book to me at all. Stephen Fry did a great job in reading it. I finished this one in record time as I did not want to put this audio book down. I can wholeheartedly recommend this for an easy and diverting reading/listening experience!
I picked this audio book because of its mysterious background around Marianne Engel, and was a somehow shocked when I started reading the first part. Not for the faint hearted, it described the car accident of the story teller, and how he was burnt alive in detail, staying conscious all the time. Continuing with his treatment in the burn ward, I learned a lot of medical facts that I found interesting. With the appearance of his visitor, Marianne Engel, the story unwinds and reveals the mystic part. An unusual book, that grabbed me from the first to the last page, with its graphic, yet touching, humourous and philosophic storytelling. This book stands out, wow, what a ride!
