[Review] Der Schwarm by Frank Schätzing

Blurb:     “Die Yrr haben die Welt für alle Zeiten verändert.” Letzter Tagebucheintrag, nachdem die Welt haarscharf am Untergang entlanggeschrammt war. Alles hatte angefangen mit einem peruanischen Fischer. Das letzte was Ucañan in seinem Leben zu sehen bekam, war eine riesige silbrig glitzernde Fläche, die näher kam. Continue reading

[Review] The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling

Blurb:     Here are the stories and songs of Kipling’s first JUNGLE BOOK: tales of Mowgli and his Seeonee Wolf-Pack and, of course, Akela the wolf; of Bagheera, the panther; Kaa, the Rock Python; Baloo, the Bear; and so many others. They are the tales of Mowgli, the lost boy raised by wolves in the jungles of India, brought up on a diet of Jungle Law, loyalty, and fresh meat from the kill, and they have captivated children and adults alike for generations.

[Review] The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde

Blurb:     Oscar Wilde’s brilliant play makes fun of the English upper classes with light-hearted satire and dazzling humour. It is 1890’s England and two young gentlemen are being somewhat limited with the truth. To inject some excitement into their lives, Mr Worthing invents a brother, Earnest, as an excuse to leave his dull country life behind him to pursue the object of his desire, the ravishing Gwendolyn.
