Review: Dr. Jekyll und Mr. Hyde

Dr. Jekyll und Mr. HydeDr. Jekyll und Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What's to say about a classic like "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde"? There's nothing more to say about it, what wasn't said already.

But I definitely enjoyed reading it, even if it was "rough" because of the old writing style. Still, a great book.

Review: Der Untergang (Die Chronik der Unsterblichen, #4)

Der Untergang (Die Chronik der Unsterblichen, #4)Der Untergang by Wolfgang Hohlbein

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Hmm, kinda hard to say something about this book. It was easy to read, but took really really long until something actually happened. Too many riddles within one book, even that I could imagine the "truth", are no good and make it hard to finish it. Sometimes I thought I will never make it through the book.

Lara Adrian sure does know how to keep her readers thrilled. The story of warrior Dante and his breedmate Tess is capturing from page 1.

Review: Am Abgrund (Die Chronik der Unsterblichen, #1)

Die Chronik der Unsterblichen 01. Am Abgrund.Die Chronik der Unsterblichen 01. Am Abgrund. by Wolfgang Hohlbein

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

According to all the new modern vampire books, this series is the complete opposite. It takes a while to get into the whole story, but once you touched the glimpse of it you can't get rid off of the book.

Just great, a real kind of traditional vampire novel.

Hohlbein shows us another way of the nature of vampires. Great book.

Highly recommend it to everyone who is into vampires and wants to take a time out of the modern vampire stories.

Review: Blutsschwestern (Vampire Academy, #1)

BlutsschwesternBlutsschwestern by Richelle Mead

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Für ein YA Buch keine schlechte Sache. Hatte es mir weniger spannend vorgestellt. Aber es ist mal eine andere Perspektive, auf die man in diesem Buch trifft. Auch das es in der Ich-Form geschrieben ist, macht Spass zu lesen. Da fühlt mich sich doch gleich an seine eigene Schulzeit errinnert, wenn es um die "böse" Gerüchteküche" geht.

In jedem Fall empfehlenswert.
