Gelesen Mai 2012

* Philip Pullman, His Dark Materials - Northern Lights / The Subtle Knife (A multiversum story about two kids choosen to save the worlds. Sounds awful, but the first two parts of the trilogy "His Dark Materials" - I'm working on the last part right now - have been a nice read.)
* L. Lee Lowe, Mortal Ghost (Fiction, another nice surprize from feedbooks or to be more specific L. Lee Lowe - a quite entertaining story about a lost youth with kind of supernatural powers. He tries to fight or control it but his - or others? - memories and the terrible forces let loose by him provide desasters ... when I thought, there can't be a satisfying ending the book anymore, the story ends with a classical showdown but delivers an epilogue to make it an somehow open end.
* Haruki Murakami, 1Q84 Band 3 (Roman - Die Auflösung zu den ersten beiden Bänden, liest sich gefällig weg, Murakami spielt wieder mit Einzelgängern, die zwischen verschiedenen Welten/Realtäten wechseln. Das ergibt eine paar Stunden nette Unterhaltung, ist besser als die letzten Werke, ja erinnert in guten Momenten sogar an seine großen Romane wie Hard-boiled Wonderland oder Wilde Schafsjagd, aber reicht letztlich auch nicht daran.)
* Iain M. Banks, Surface Detail (Another culture novel, a quite entertaining story about life, death and hell. Artificial hells that is. Also another lecture about the problems of a "perfect" society run by hyperintelligient machines.)
* Wolfgang Herrndorf, tschick (Als Film würde man wohl sagen Roadmovie, das ganze schreit auch ein bisschen nach Verfilmung. Ein sehr unterhaltsamer Roman über die Sommerferien eines 14jährigen.)
