Simon & Schuster UK Ltd 1st Floor 222 Gray’s Inn Road London WC1X 8HB                                              Monday, January 21, 2014 Dear Sirs, I have recently begun reading Peter Watson’s fascinating book The German Genius which you published back in 2010. As I work into the depths of German philosophical […]

Caught Out

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 20, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

If you can’t trust an association which has nineteen million members, is there whenever you need help with your car, runs first aid, recovery and similar courses, has a fleet of mechanics on the road to assist with breakdowns and flies injured tourists back home from overseas, who can you trust? The ADAC – the […]

Losing Weight

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 19, 2014 in Publishing |

A while back I wrote a few words about the future of book publishing and a few of my thoughts about eBooks. My thoughts at the time were less towards the electronic versions of books – my main love is and always will be the printed word held in the hand! – and more towards […]

First There Were Drones

If you have ever felt a little uncomfortable about the data companies or the government hold on your private life, your movements, your telephone conversations or purchasing habits, cast a few nervous thoughts in the direction of Amazon’s new marketing idea. Anticipatory Shipping. Everything that you ever wanted sent straight to you at home, before […]

Are We Related?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 18, 2014 in Personal |

It’s a strange question, and one that I have received through mails quite a few times: are we related? We have the same family name, these people tell me, and come from the same country, so we might be related to one another. I guess it’s a bit like someone saying: hey, you come from […]

Weekend Plans

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 17, 2014 in Personal |

If I include the active one, at the moment I have seventeen books in my To Read pile. To some this may not seem to be very many – I am sure there are plenty of other avid readers out there with massive stacks! – for me it is something of a challenge. I have […]

Review: Die Frauen, Die Er Kannte

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 16, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

Someone told me that this, the second book about the psychologist Sebastian Bergman, is too complicated to enjoy. There are too many threads to follow, too many background stories, too much history which is only slowly revealed. The characterization, I found, was of the best. I managed to get into the characters, into the story, […]

Review: The Unlikely Pilgramage Of Harold Fry

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 16, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

I had high hopes for this book: a tale of unrequited love; a mystery to be solved; a journey through life. In the end, aside from one aspect, I was disappointed. I had hoped for a good deal more than just ‘charming’ (as the Sunday Express apparently called it). And I found many things simply […]

Look To Yourself

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 15, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

Truth can be seen in few words, if you wish to find them. But that often means awkward moments when a person has to look at themselves, evaluate their own actions, admit that they are not perfect. Many people seem to find this almost impossible to do. And if it is so hard for one […]

Battle Of The Brush

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 14, 2014 in News & Opinion |

Hamburg has definitely seen better – and worse – days than during the last week or so. And the level of political judgement on social issues has also seen better days. Hamburg has been hit by two events which have overshadowed much of the work achieved since the end of the Second World War, a […]
