Calls on the Turkmenistan government to immediately and unconditionally release all prisoners of conscience, including Nikolay Shelekhov and Kurban Zakirov and the political prisoner Mukhametkuli Aymuradov, convicted in in an unfair trial;. Biokrieg-Pathologie-Perimeter in urbaner und semi- urbaner Umwelt. April will be quite busy as it seems, with this book and all the CATs.
I'll need to make an overview tomorrow March recap March was not the best month for me. I finished three books and a fourth at the first day of April - so I'm counting it for March. Two out of four books were 3 star reads, the other two 4 star reads. Could have been better. One out of four was a ROOT - could have been better, too. I would love to read more books for them, but unfortunately the chosen books have quite many pages, so I won't make it to all of them. In order to have the slightest chance, I will move The Whites to May.

The weather has been so good that I try to spend as much time outside as possible. Spring finally arrived! Book Der Meister und Margarita Engl. I wanted to read this book because I had heard so much positive about it. But it didn't really grab me. I had a hard time getting into it, until around page Then there were parts I liked and I also liked the idea of the novel within the novel, but in total this just wasn't the right book for me. I read it and enjoyed it but knew I was missing a lot of the references.
Fortunately my copy was annotated which really helped me understand it a bit better. I'd love to reread it after having read Faust as I think that would help as well. Loved the vodka drinking cat. An annotated version would certainly have helped But yeah, the cat was fun! I went on a business trip to Copenhagen again yay! This saved my April planning, otherwise I wouldn't even have a chance to finish all the books I would like to read. Here we go: Book Biokrieg Engl. It is set in Thailand, or rather in what remained of Thailand after global warming, rising sea levels and food scarcities have changed the world.
Genetical engineering is critical to stay safe, but capitalism has reached the new Thailand as well and we find ourselves in the middle of biological and political tensions. The story is told from the point of view of four main narrators, all with completely different occupations and interests. There is Anderson Lake, the leader of one of the big genetic food companies, and Hock Seng, his Chinese assistant.
There is Emiko, the Japanese windup girl. And there is Jaidee and later on Kanya , a team leader of the ministry of the environment. It took me a while to get into the book and to understand how the different perspectives and stories work together. But overall I found this a great book, with compelling world building, interesting characters and complex conflicts. I also liked that the main topics human behaviour, how to handle the changing world and to secure our lives are so relevant in our reality today, too. Luckily in a different way, but this was kind of a picture of what we probably don't want the future to be like.
Readers, who don't want to read about violence, should not read The Windup Girl , though. There is a lot of physical violence and also sexual violence in the book. The author uses various Thai words, and a list with translations would have been helpful to make the reading more smooth.
Thanks for the book bullet, Paruline! Nothing like travel to get some reading in. Glad it was to somewhere you enjoy being! It put Bacigalupi up on my favorite authors list.
You might also enjoy The Water Knife which addresses diminishing water supplies. One more time for my old job, from June onwards I will have to remind myself to book a long weekend every now and then It's not on my BB list, but I am sure I have seen some recommendations here or maybe somewhere else? Thanks for the reminder, I'll put it on the official wishlist now. The story is about Vita, who just finished school and leaves for a roadtrip with her friends Danilo and Trixie. Soon they get to a small Italian village, Viagello, where Vita stumbles upon her own past.
I absolutely enjoyed this book. I was sucked into the story right from the start and could hardly put the book down at night. The story is engaging and interesting, with some expected and some completely unexpected twists. I felt with the characters which were all well drawn. And the author describes the Italian surroundings in such a lively manner, that I would love to travel to Italy right away.
The love story between Vita and Luca was a little bit too sweet for my taste, but I'm not 16 anymore, so I guess it's not the book's fault. Unfortunately this is only available in German, but if you are able to read German, I recommend to read this book. And that's a lovely cover, too. Pretty clever! My reading has slowed down a bit. Not so much free time to read and if I read, it takes time, because the Danish Profeterne i Evighedsfjorden is quite demanding.
Foreign language, set in th 18th century, that's not exactly a quick read. The weather has turned back to winter again, but on Saturday I managed to enjoy a few sunny hours at the coast:. Lovely shades of blue. Who would have expected snow after this, eh?
The Prophets of Eternal Fjord sounds very interesting - I'll put it on my look-out-for list for my upcoming trip home to Sweden. It is not a simple enjoyable read, there is quite some violence including sexual violence in it. But still a good read so far. Six minutes into May, so I guess it's time for another recap. April recap When I count the pages of my finished books, April was great, second most pages this year. But it doesn't feel like a successful reading month. The first book The Master and Margarita was mostly read in March and for the last week or so I have been reading the Danish Profeterne i Evighedsfjorden , which is a demanding book with slow progress.
I will continue reading it in May, just as I will continue reading my non-fiction read Der Crash des Kapitalismus. Book Profeterne i Evighedsfjorden Engl. This one was hard work for me. Danish is only my fourth language and a book set in the 18th century — with adequate language and a topic I'm not used to — was a challenge. But I made it and can finally remove it from my TBR.
The Prophets of Eternal Fjord follows the fictional story of missionary Morten Falck around the year The young Norwegian grows up in Norway and is then sent to Copenhagen to study. When he graduates, he is offered a position as missionary priest in Greenland where he is supposed to spread Christianity among the natives. In the 18th century life isn't easy. Strict rules, hunger, sickness, death, and risks are around all the time. Letters between Greenland and Norway take a full year and shome ships never arrive. The story is full of loss and tragedy, but love and hope flash up every now and then.
There is also quite some violence, also sexual violence, which makes the book hard to read at times. Nevertheless, I think this is a good book. I found it interesting enough to go on reading and to learn a bit about life in Copenhagen and the Danish mission in Greenland more than years ago. I also learnt a few new Danish words.
If you're interested in that region or century, the book is certainly worth a try. I'll take a book bullet for this, it sounds very interesting. My reading has really slowed down, real life is interfering a lot. Lots of work, quite some table tennis including a four-day-tournament with our youth team plus local culture events and family parties. Next will be - finally!
On Monday I'll be in Copenhagen again 4h train ride - yay! Exciting times ahead! Best of luck with your new job. And your reading of a book in Danish has reminded me to read more in German. Thanks everyone! Daniel tells us his story, how he grew up with Asperger's and being a savant, and how he made his way into life and standing on his own two feet. I found this very interesting and fascinating, even more so because he wrote the book himself.
There are so many things that we take as given, which are not — or at least not for everone. Recommended for everyone interested in the topic, it's well worth reading. May recap pages - that's a low number, even for me. I'm happy with my selections, but would have loved to finish one more book, e.
Tomorrow I'm starting a new job and the office is only 4 km away - so I can bike to work and back. Only downside is that I can't read on the bike, so my numbers won't increase. Enjoy your bike rides! I can't read on the bike What about audio books on your phone? But it's only 15 minutes anyway, so I guess I just need to reserve some reading time in the evenings at home. The first day was great. My direct colleagues are lovely and very helpful, just like everyone else in the company.
Now I need to figure out the daily tasks and understand all the routines and structures. They even prepared a 1 month introduction plan, something I have never seen before. It's so much fun to be in an office after 1. Looks like you are lucky with your new job and new colleagues. I'll put it on the list for next year.
I have a 2. Branded as a loose cannon by his higher-ups, Billy spent years enduring one dead-end posting after another. Now in his early forties, he has somehow survived and become a sergeant in Manhattan Night Watch, a small team of detectives charged with responding to all post-midnight felonies from Wall Street to Harlem. Mostly, his unit acts as little more than a set-up crew for the incoming shift, but after years in police purgatory, Billy is content simply to do his job. Then comes a call that changes everything: Night Watch is summoned to the four a.
And when he discovers that the victim was once a suspect in the unsolved murder of a twelve-year-old boy-a savage case with connections to the former members of the Wild Geese-the bad old days are back in Billy's life with a vengeance, tearing apart enduring friendships forged in the urban trenches and even threatening the safety of his family.
There are quite a few charcacters, so it took me a while to understand who is who, including the characters' relationships. Another issue was probably, that my reading time varied a lot, sometimes I only read short parts and then didn't pick up the book for another 2 days or so. I liked the topic, but expected more of it. It still isn't a bad book, I recommend it to you if you like to read books with the tags police procedural, crime fiction or noir.
Book Kleine Abschiede Engl. Aged 40, married, three almost grown up children. One day, during a family holiday at the coast, she simply walks away. Instead of reaturning to her family at the first opportunity, she starts a new life in another city. She finds herself a room, buys clothes, starts a job, makes friends. It's not the most exciting book, it is very calm and subtle.
I am tempted to call it a light read, but somehow it wasn't one of those light female summer reads. There was much more in the story, a lot about relationships, second chances and new beginnings. I didn't really like the main character Delia, but still enjoyed reading the book.
The writing style is great, only the ending was not entirely to my taste. This was my first book by Anne Tyler, but certainly not the last. Today we had a barbecue after work at work and watched the Germany vs. Northern Ireland game of the European Championships together. Seems like I have chosen a good and social employer, all people I have met so far are very nice. But these European Championships, they are really limiting my reading time Edit: Football soccer , just in case someone is wondering.
It's wonderful when your coworkers make you feel welcome and there's a social element, not just punching the clock. I think Germany 'does' football really well. I remember being in Germany for a little bit of the World Cup, and having the best time in beer gardens and parks with big screens. It was such a great atmosphere. I can't complain, and I'm finally taking over my first real tasks now. Good feeling to get up to speed. Summer has arrived in the north of Germany! It is 11pm and still 26 C outside. I'm enjoying sitting on the balcony, it's just a shame that I can't sit here all night long June recap Mmmhhh, another slow reading month.
I blame the European Championship, summer weather, my new job and my general distraction from all my regular tasks at home - I'm behind on everything! I finished two books: The Whites by Richard Price, a police procedural which I expected to like more than I actually did. And Ladder of Years by Anne Tyler, which was a lighter but good read. I hope for more reading time in July to be able to catch up. Besides reading, June was a good month. I had a good start at my new job and tracked km by bike - just the work commute. Have a nice weekend everyone!
Iceland and Wales? Hooray for the underdogs. It's so nice to bike to work, isn't it?! I always arrive in a better mood when I bike than when I drive.

And the smaller teams brought a lot of great atmosphere into the competition. I absolutely love it, and really missed it the last 1. My mood depends on the weather, though. I hate getting wet when I'm not expecting it. As far as I understand, it is the first of two books, with Truth being the second. Is that correct or did I miss any other books an that mini series? He is asked to investigate the murder of the local prominence Charles Bourgoyne and soon three Aboriginal boys are the main suspects.http://butiris.ru/profiles/188-zithromax-vs-chloroquine.php

However, Cashin — the stubborn and impulsive cop — is not convined and investigates further, which lead to the discovery of a long hidden secret. It took me a while to get into The Broken Shore. One reason was the language, I'm not used to Australian slang at all. Another reason was that the story starts out quite slowly and only picks up towards the second half. Additionally, some of the descriptions of surroundings, health issues etc. The second half was much better. The story became more complex and suddenly the book was packed with family tragedies, racism, corruption, abuse and personal issues.
I enjoyed reading it, because besides being apolice procedural, it also gave insights into modern Australia, its political and cultural struggles. I'm looking forward to read more by Peter Temple. And with that, I'm halfway through my personal challnge, only 8 days late to meet the halfway mark of the year. I had hoped to hit the halfway mark a bit earlier, but the last months were a bit more busy, so there was less reading time. I certainly need to improve the tbr vs.
I'm doing ok on my focus CATs, though the progress is different from what I had expected. I wanted to go on with my series, but obviously haven't done so yet They are so much fun! One learning for next your though is that with a yearly number of books around 40, joining all CATs is too much, because there is hardly any room for impulse choices from my tbr.
I'll keep that in mind and see what the rest of this year and the discussions for next year will bring. You are doing very well with your Challenge. I read The Broken Shore a year or so ago and remember really liking it. I haven't read another book by that author as of yet, but I certainly plan to. As far as I know Truth is the second book to feature Joe Cashin and will most likely be the book that I will read next.
Thanks Judy! I just checked the library catalogue, and they have Thruth available as well, though in German only. I'll add that to my list to read it soon The European Cup! I don't even like football and I'm up on what's going on. My partner generally watches with headphones on, but with the windows all open at this time I know exactly how each game involving Germany is going. The next Temple novel, Truth , is connected to The Broken Shore , but they don't need to be read in order.
His characters seem real to me, and so do the places. The so called summer really doesn't live up to any expectations, but mostly it starts raining when I'm safe inside.
Book Die Zeit der Schmetterlinge Engl. It is a fictional version of true events in the ss in the Dominican Republic, where Trujillo's regime becomes more and more brutal. The Mirabel sisters were part of the resistance and three of them were ultimately killed in an "accident". The book is told from the sisters's perspectives, starting in their years as children, growing up and becoming more independent, living their own lives with the dangers of the dictatorship and finally their last hours.
Even though the author has built up her own story due to limited information, the book gives a realistic impression of what life in the Dominican Republic was like at that time, and expecially a good picture of how the Mirabal sisters have lived. It is a tragic story, with brutality and loss, but the sisters always find faith and strength when they are with their family.
When I saw that the chapters are told from different points of view, I was afraid that this might be confusing, but it wasn't. I was quickly sucked into the book and I'm sure it will stay with me for a while. It follows a young woman, Manso, all the way from Africa to Germany, where she hopes to find freedom. Then there is a young Spanish man, Enrique, being born in the body of a girl, who moves to Munich because he thinks chances to find work there are better than in Spain.
And finally we meet his best friend, Leon, who has Down's syndrome. Three totally different characters, who have to fight their own problems, but whose ways meet both in Spain and in Germany. They try to find a way for Manso to find her freedom and a way for them all to live without discrimination. This was an interesting story, covering the discrimination the different groups can face. And the obstacles and emotional struggles refugees go through.
Even though the book was not perfect, it is an important one which many people should read. Unfortunately only available in German. Her books are easy to read, entertaining, a bit romantic, but never too superficial and "kitschy". If You Could See Me Now introduces the reader to Elizabeth, an organised and busy woman, and to her sister Saoirse, who is the chaotic one, drinking and leaving her 7 year old son Luke to Elizabeth.
Czech and German covers…
Out of the blue Luke meets a new friend, Ivan, who changes Luke to a more active and happy person. Elizabeth can't see him, though, until she also meets a new friend, also called Ivan, showing her what life has to offer besides colourless interiour design and seriousness.
This was fun to read. It was not the typical chick lit romance, but involved creativity and fantasy. You have to let the story sink and accept that this is playful and unrealistic, then its beauty will unfold. I enjoyed it a lot and read it quite quickly. Don't we all sometimes need a new in visible friend to find new ways in life?
The weather was ok, so I took the chance to spend some hours outside on the balcony and read. And I need to work on my own Focus Cats, especially the series and the book bullets. Looks like some good plans for August! Wishing you many sunny days on the balcony for reading :. I'm glad I finally got to it.
Czech and German covers…
Sarah and Angus are the parents of two girls, totally identical twins, Kirstie and Lydia. Being 6 years old, one of the twins dies in an accident.

But suddenly the surviving daughter starts claiming she is Lydia, the dog behaves strangely and a terrible thought comes to mind: could it be that they mixed up the children's identity?
