Review: The Love Song Of Miss Queenie Hennessy

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 31, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

I wonder what makes a person change their entire life just over an emotion, and a fleeting emotion at that when you consider how love is bandied about in the press, amongst friends, in society. For some, however, it is not a passing phase, not something you are likely to grow out of with time […]

Review: The Raft

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 24, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

What do we, as adults, look for in a children’s book? Adventure, color, excitement, education? Probably all of these things in one go since, after all, we want our children to learn as much as to enjoy themselves and, of course, we all wish them to find something worth going back to, something which awakes […]

Review: Getting Colder

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 22, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

Some people live in the past, either because they’ve never managed to come to grips with modern life, or because there are too many good things still left, they believe, which make it worth hanging on to. Yet others look back on the past, especially their own lives, and ask themselves what could have happened […]

Review: The Curvy Girls Club

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 17, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

You might just as well give up right now, don’t even think about it, don’t seek any remedies; retreat back into your hole, under your stone, and regret everything. Look at it this way: you’re over thirty; you have one or two children who take up all of your time; that baby-fat is there to […]

Review: Iron Kingdom

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

As everyone who has spent more than ten minutes in a classroom knows, history is a boring subject packed with dates and names which have to be learned by heart so that, at the end of the year, everything can be regurgitated on an exam paper. The textbooks given out are bland, filled with maps […]

Review: Am Meer Damals

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 1, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

Where do you go when it’s time for a relaxing, sun-soaked vacation? For many, those who don’t want to travel too far, use their dollars rather than exchanging for foreign cash, and not leave America somewhere like Mexico or even Belize probably comes as a possible choice. Long, clean beaches, few tourists, but with a […]

Review: Das Kindermädchen

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 30, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

Everyone has secrets, little personal matters which we don’t want to share, which bring us pleasure or pain, actions we regret or which would be unacceptable to others, things from the past better hidden from view. What happens, though, when these secrets are more than just a personal matter, when they have to be kept […]

Review: Das Dorf Der Mörder

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 28, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

You could be forgiven for believing that the zoo is a place of peace and calm in the center of the hectic city. Family outings, the lure of the (caged) wild, an exploration of that which is otherwise only to be seen on National Geographic. There are lions and tigers, antelope, elephants, reptile houses swarming […]

Review: Never Go Back

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 27, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

There are times when we all wonder whether we are in the right place, whether what we have worked for all our lives has really been worth it, or whether things have changed so much that what we knew, what we cared for, has vanished forever and remains just a memory. There are many reasons […]

Review: The Orphan Master’s Son

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 26, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

It’s always the little people who suffer, not those of smaller stature, but the ordinary folk, the workers, those who keep a country functioning by their hard work and dedication in the face of all odds. Within those masses there are those who stand out, and those who are singled out for better, or for […]
