I had listened to most of Michael Robotham's detective novels in the past and liked them well enough - but this is something else! More reminiscent of Ruth Rendell's masterpieces, this suspense thriller takes us deep into the minds of two women whose lives intersect, with heartbreaking consequences.

Nachdem mir bereits Doris Knechts erster Roman, Gruber geht, sehr gut gefallen hat, war ich neugierig auf Wald. Auch hier geht es um einen Menschen, der völlig aus der Bahn geworfen wird und plötzlich alles verliert, was vertraut war und sicher schien. Marians Geschichte ist einfühlsam erzählt und stark vorgelesen - absolute Hörempfehlung.

I've been a fan of character-driven suspense novels for many years (anyone remember Ruth Rendell?) but lately I've been wondering if the genre has become too popular for its own good, pushing out large quantities of titles with poorly fleshed out characters and all-too similar plots. However, I am so glad I picked up Disclaimer. The story kept unfolding in ways I did not expect, and had me question my assumptions more than once, up until the very end. A captivating listen.

Eine schier unglaubliche wahre Geschichte - herzzerreissend, berührend, und doch, wenn man es kaum mehr ertragen kann, immer wieder auch komisch. Absolute Hörempfehlung, genial gelesen von Devid Striesow.

Near future America is running out of fossil fuels, flooded thanks to climate change, battling large-scale outbreaks of plagues, and op top of it, North and South are fighting another Civil War. There has certainly been no shortage of dystopian fiction in these past months; this one I found particularly gripping as we follow Sarat through the nation's and her own, very personal struggle. The novel may be set in the future, but the seeds that grew into this particular apocalypse are already sown, and the book's vision, as dark and disturbing it may be, is fully imaginable.

"The apocalypse appeared to have arrived and yet it was not apocalyptic, which is to say that while the changes were jarring they were not the end, and life went on, and people found things to do and ways to be and people to be with, and plausible desirable futures began to emerge, unimaginable previously, but not unimaginable now, and the result was something not unlike relief."

Beautiful and haunting story, set nowhere and everywhere in this volatile world of ours. Nothing is ever safe and nothing is ever final, and yet this open and uncertain future is not simply a threat to life as we know it, but becomes the source for new possibilities. One of the most moving audiobooks I have listened to in a long time.

Umberto Eco meets Douglas Adams meets Jarett Kobek. This book has it all: A secret cult. Old books. Kale smoothies. A treasure hunt. Typography. Google!
A brilliantly narrated adventure and great geeky fun.

It's been a while since I have been so spellbound by a book as I was with Here I Am. It's a dense novel spanning a wide set of themes, from love, marriage, and family to teenage alienation to being Jewish in today's USA to the political situation in the Middle East. This may sound overwhelming, but the writing is well paced and captivating, and for all its difficult subject matter, it's often simply hilariously funny.

Of course, at this point I would love just about anything read by Ari Fliakos, who may be the greatest narrator ever.

"Every day, in real life, the good guys win," writes Stephen King in his intro to The Bachman Books, and now seems to be as good a time as any to be reminded of that. The Running Man is a classic, published in 1982, that year of great American dystopias, and like Blade Runner, it holds up well. Highly recommended for re-discovery.

Die Malerin Charlotte Salomon war mir vor diesem Hörbuch kein Begriff, was die Entdeckung des Buches, und der Künstlerin, deren Leben es beschreibt, umso überraschender machte. Eindringlich erzählt der Autor von einer jungen Frau, die in den schwierigsten Umständen ihre Stimme findet und in kürzester Zeit ein Werk geschaffen hat, das uns bis heute berührt.
