Thranduil: Erinnerungen eines Waldelben by Drangemeister

Also der Author ist (natürlich) kein Tolkien, aber es macht schon Spass, die Geschichte Mittelerdes aus der Sicht der Waldelfen zu lesen. Sehr schön ist auch wie das elfische Verhälnis zur Zeit gezeigt wird; man wandert mit Oropher, Thranduil und co gemütlich durch die Ladschaft, rastet mal hier, mal da... und wenn man dann wieder andere Elfen oder Menschen trifft und in die Geschehnisse Mittelerdes verwickelt wird sind Jahre, Jahrzehnte oder gar Jahrhunderte vergangen. Sehr treffend.

Skin Game by Jim Butcher (unabridged audio)

*cough* yes, well, I started listening to that... erm... *cough* ... last July, on a (nightmarish) flight to Australia... and listened on another flight... and another... (ever venturing deeper into the circles of airborne hell) and waiting at ariports and I never got anywhere, cause I kept losing track by being utterly furious about what was going on around me...
Fly emirates? - DON'T
Anyway, even at home I never got around to listening to more than a couple of minutes, hence only finishing the book now... I'm not made to listen to somebody talking at me (despite it being James Marsters, outstanding voice-acting btw), I want to read... so I can't actually tell you about the book. There was some sort of quest and swords and archangels and Hades and ice and fire... erm... *cough*
Will hit the Phantastische Bibliothek one of these days and take out the book to read.

Children, steampunk, christian religion is that world's magic and vampires. Bleurgh. James Marsters made me do it! His stellar voice-acting is the only thing that gives the different characters and distinction, they (and the story) are as flat as the Sesame Street crew.

Ok, The Empty Throne by Bernard Cornwell

Well. I absolutely love the Sharpe series, so a book that comes with the following rec: 'You have to read this, the beginning is Sharpe planning and executing a cavalry ambush!' is a must-read. And yes, that is how the beginning reads ;)

But... then there is a jolting change of pov, to the father of the current main character (of the same name to boot), and to make things worse it's a first-person (shudders) narration with plenty of foreshadowing (told from his death-bed or something), so not that great.
But I got shadows of Sharpe a couple of times, so I could deal.

Historically... well. I don't have the needed knowledge of English history (being a mainlander, am much better aquainted with that historic mess), so I felt I was lacking the needed reference points to understand the story. I would have needed more exposition, but nobody likes the exposition fairy... so I took it more as fantasy.

And... having read a lot of 'viking' material this year, I just kept thinking how much better everyone would be off if they were Norse... made me feel like I was rooting for the French...

Legends by Robert Litell
This gave the idea for the tv series 'Legends' and was very interesting for me. I did devour all the spy stuff, Clancy, de Mille & co in my teens, and 20something year ago that was all cold war...

Günter, der innere Schweinehund, wird schlank: Ein tierisches Diätbuch by Stefan Frädrich ... *fails*

Then, because I got reminded that the Peninsular War and Waterloo are featured in it (which I didn't remember from my first painful read)

Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke

Now, my first read of that was a painful, dreary slog, I'd thrown it away a couple of times and only finished because friends were so very enthusiastic about it... no fun at all, but at the time I couldn't put my finger on what bothered me about it. I can now. It's the utterly graceless historical place, name and event dropping.
Am particularly enraged by Waterloo... after! the battle he gets the earth to swallow the French guns, AFTER! *fumes*

And (because of Waterloo, of course):

The Waterloo Archive: German Sources v. 2 by Gareth Glover

To quote the foreword: "These German Reports are also noticeably much more frank and open with regard to their failings, honestly descriing mistakes or errors of deployment that led to losses and even name and shame both officers and men who failed to perform their duties, something that must have happened in every unit involved in such carnage, but such honesty is virtually unknown in contemporary British accounts."

Sharpe's Waterloo by Bernard Cornwell

I really admire how Cornwall manages to develop Sharpe's character during the series, particularly his growth from Toulouse to Waterloo.
And of course he gives the readers a thorough impression of the battle, even if Sharpe (for once) doesn't get caught in a cavalry charge ;)

An Infamous Army by Georgette Heyer

Odysseus: A life by Charles Rowan Beye

It says 'Everyone knows something about Odysseus:...' in the blurb, and it starts out as nothing more than that, a retelling of random incidents, no particular order. In the middle of the book the author changes to a more or less chronological look at the adventures of the Odysse. Sadly that's when his pseudo-psychological and -philosophical ramblings about the goings on become unbearable. Am rather disappointed, was no joy at all.
