MonatsausLESE: Dezember 2020

05 Jan

Der Dezember war lesetechnisch irgendwie totaler Mist. Gerade mal drei dünne Bücher konnte ich beenden. Zwei davon sind zwar richtig super, aber irgendwie…. Und weil eh alles so komisch ist hatte ich irgendwie die Idee mein extrem kurzes Fazit zu den Büchern diesmal auf Englisch zu schreiben. Deswegen besteht dieser Beitrag aus ziemlich komischem Denglisch. xD Allerdings will ich langfristig eh versuchen meine Buchkommentare zwecks Veröffentlichung auf Goodreads etc. gleich in englischer Sprache zu schreiben, von daher ist dieser Monat vielleicht eine nette Übung. Dann muss ich aber irgendwann die ganze Rubrik umbenennen, haha.

Statistisches (ohne Sachbücher)
Anzahl Bücher: 3
Seiten-Gesamtzahl: 420

The Thick of It: The Missing DoSAC Files (various authors) 136 pages
I can’t really put into words how much I loved the show (even though I tried) and the same goes for this book. It’s a really nice addition to the show and really a must-buy for every fan. I especially enjoyed the section about Glenn’s Twitter account, the various e-mail conversations between Malcolm and the other characters and the hand-written notes by some characters. Like the one where Ollie basically admits he wants to be liked by Malcolm…just for that one bit alone the book would’ve been worth it’s money :D (Or Nicola’s letter to Ollie, that one was hilarious too!) By the way, I’m really glad I still got an used copy for a decent price, seems like the book is pretty rare? But at least there’s an e-book version…unlike the TTOI Scripts book. I will probably never own the scripts because used copies are damn expensive /cries

Cautionary Tales for Grown-Ups (Chris Addison) 104 pages
Chris Addison is an awesome person, and you can’t convince me otherwise. That’s why I admit that I might be slightly biased, but…I just really enjoyed this little book. You know what would’ve been awesome? An audio book version, read by the author…. <3 (Wait…I just saw on Amazon that there is in fact an audio book version, but it’ll be hard to get my hands on it….aaaaah!)

Doctor Who: Adventures in Lockdown (various authors) 180 pages
I have a pretty mixed opinion about this book, to be honest. Some of the stories were pretty nice, but it really isn’t anything special. Also most of the stories didn’t really feel positive or hopefully to me, like other reviewers on Amazon said? But that might also be due to me feeling weird through the entire December, so I don’t really know. Well, anyway, I still don’t regret the purchase because the book is in aid for a charity, so it was worth it, I guess! (Though I don’t know if foreign purchases do count because it’s a UK charity?)
