I read the first three long stories in the Echo series and found them surprisingly bland. The balance of whimsicality and darkness tilted much too far toward cute and atmospheric, and there was a lack of psychological, narrative, and philosophical substance. It's possible that the stories improve after Frei has introduced the characters to readers, but I don't have patience for much more!

(I read the stories in Russian.) ( )

I did not finish- apparently, this is a bestseller book across Europe. I don't know if it was the translation, or the book, but I found the book to be insufferable. The sequel of this book (which I will not be reading) has on its cover "Harry Potter Fans Rejoice, this is the book you've been waiting for (or something like this). The problem is, it is nothing like Harry Potter. its more like Sherlock Holmes forms a super hero team and solves problems.

I found the characters insufferable - all ego, no faults. They talk big, they eat big, and they drink big. Which isn't all that bad, except they talk big too. Its the same story over and over and over again.

I did like the socialist aspect of the society. If you are hungry, you can eat at any restaurant and the bill sent to the crown. Or if you a convict, you go to prison to be redeemed, not punished. However, with only one woman on the team, and a lack of other woman even from the day to day business, I found the book to be a bit sexist, mostly from exclusion, rather than anything anybody does.

Anyway, the book is due back at the library, and I don't really want to finish it, so it will go unfinished. Maybe it redeems itself as it gets toward the end, but I will never know.

Hmm. Has anyone out there read this in the original Russian? Or any language other than English?
I really hated the way it was written, but I think that might be the fault of the translator.
The story itself was actually kind of charming, in a Gilbert and Sullivan Meet Sam Spade in Oz kind of way. ( )

This book is a translation of "Das Fremdling" by a female writer, Svetlana Martynchik, who uses the pseudonym Max Frei both for author and main character of the book. This story --or set of stories-- is about a man from our world, somewhat at a loss to know what to do with himself, who finds a way to a parallel universe, where he has unusual powers he never dreamed of. Completely surreal and fantastic, with an appropriately alien feel to it, It drew me in from the first chapter. The characters are appealing, the stories odd to the point of bizarre (in a good way!). I've had my name on the Amazon waitlist for the translation of the second volume for months and I wish it would hurry up! ( )

I found i was paying more attention to the number of pages in a chapter then the story itself. To me not a good sign of a book. ( )
