    Das klingt gut. Beim Anlesen habe ich befürchtet, dass es sprachlich nicht ganz meins ist (kurze Sätze). Aber die Rezensionen klingen bisher gut.

    Kann ich nachvollziehen, ich finde kurze Sätze auch doof, wenn sie im Übermaß verwendet werden. So empfand ich das hier aber nicht, und ich hatte mich nach ein paar Seiten an den Stil gewöhnt. Die Sprache ist klar und schnörkellos, aber eine lyrische(re) Sprache würde auch überhaupt nicht zu Mickey (aus deren Perspektive erzählt wird) und zum Setting mit dem Drogenviertel und der dysfunctionalen Familie passen.

    Wow, Murmelchen , du gehst ja echt mit mega gutem Beispiel voran! :-]


    Ich habe im Januar nur ein Buch von meiner Liste gelesen, und das hat mir gleich mal wieder gezeigt, warum ich eigentlich am liebsten nur einen ganz kleinen Mini-SUB hätte. Der Roman entsprach einfach nicht mehr meinen aktuellen Lesevorlieben. Hätte ich das Buch ungelesen aussortiert, hätte ich nichts verpasst.

    Weil ich schon Fantasy-Entzug habe:


    The Fifth Season -- N. K. Jemisin

    Das Jemisin-Buch ist sehr gut geschrieben, aber weil die Geschichte sehr düster ist und das gerade nicht zu meiner Stimmung passt, habe ich es erstmal wieder zur Seite gelegt. Jetzt lese ich Liz Moore und bin bisher sehr angetan.


    Long Bright River – Liz Moore


    In a Philadelphia neighborhood rocked by the opioid crisis, two once-inseparable sisters find themselves at odds. One, Kacey, lives on the streets in the vise of addiction. The other, Mickey, walks those same blocks on her police beat. They don't speak anymore, but Mickey never stops worrying about her sibling. Then Kacey disappears, suddenly, at the same time that a mysterious string of murders begins in Mickey's district, and Mickey becomes dangerously obsessed with finding the culprit--and her sister--before it's too late.

    The Fifth Season -- N. K. Jemisin


    THIS IS THE WAY THE WORLD ENDS . . . FOR THE LAST TIME. IT STARTS WITH THE GREAT RED RIFT across the heart of the world's sole continent, spewing ash that blots out the sun. IT STARTS WITH DEATH, with a murdered son and a missing daughter. IT STARTS WITH BETRAYAL, and long dormant wounds rising up to fester.
    This is the Stillness, a land long familiar with catastrophe, where the power of the earth is wielded as a weapon. And where there is no mercy.

    Elmet – Fiona Mozley


    Shortlisted for The Man Booker Prize 2017. Daniel is heading north. He is looking for someone. The simplicity of his early life with Daddy and Cathy has turned menacing and fearful. They lived apart in the house that Daddy built for them in the woods with his bare hands. They foraged and hunted.
    Cathy was more like their father: fierce and full of simmering anger. Daniel was more like their mother: gentle and kind. Sometimes, their father disappeared, and would return with a rage in his eyes. But when he was at home, he was at peace. He told them that the little copse in Elmet was theirs alone. But that wasn't true. Local men, greedy and watchful, began to circle like vultures. All the while, the terrible violence in Daddy grew.
