Reading: And Not Enjoying Reading

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 2, 2015 in Articles and Reviews |

Thinking back, I believe this is perhaps only the second or third time that I have given up on a book from an established publisher – as opposed to a self-published or small-press work – and thrown it into the corner. I’m sure that there are plenty of people who really need this sort of […]

Review: The Extraordinary Journey Of The Fakir Who Got Trapped In An IKEA Wardrobe

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 23, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

What is it about this work which reminds me of an IKEA store? It might have been the fanfare which accompanied its release, a novel written in spare moments by a former cleaner at the Brighton Pier on his mobile phone. Perhaps the very idea of someone trapped inside a wardrobe and then making his […]

Is A Negative Review A Bad Thing?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 7, 2014 in Publishing |

Negative reviews are nothing new, whether they refer to books or to anything else, there is always going to be someone who does not see things in the same light, with the same enthusiasm, as their creator, as the writer, photographer, artist, cook, whatever. When we look back through the history of literature, we find […]

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 […]

Is There A Point To Negative Reviews?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 4, 2014 in Publishing |

A major interest for all writers, quite aside from having their work accepted by a publisher and then selling, is the reaction it receives from the marketplace, from ordinary readers. With the advances in technology, it is now possible for absolutely everyone to review a work, to add their comment on one website or another, […]

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 […]
