Bodo Lanza's Monsunregen (German Edition) PDF

By Bodo Lanza

Dieter reist mit Frau und Tochter zum ersten Mal nach Thailand. Mehr aus Kostengründen denn aus Überzeugung steigt er in einem einfachen Ressort ab, das aus ärmlichen Hütten besteht an einem einsamen Strandabschnitt gelegen sind. Es ist Nebensaison und nur wenige der "Bungalows" sind mit ausländischen Stammgästen belegt, die das spartanische Hüttendorf und die archaischen Lebensweise zu ihrer Weltanschauung machen. Während Dieter mit seiner Frau versucht, sich der ungewohnten Gesellschaft seiner seltsamen Mitbewohner anzupassen, braut sich über ihnen ein Verbrechen zusammen, in dem er und seine Familie die Hauptrolle spielen sollen.

Kritiker schreiben:
"Das Buch hat mir richtig intestine gefallen. Sowohl die anschauliche Beschreibung des Landes, als auch die mit einem Augenzwinkern gezeichneten Charaktere der verschiedenen Touristen und das alles im Rahmen einer spannenden Geschichte, an der guy einfach nur dranbleiben will. "13. März 2012
"Das Buch hat mir sehr intestine gefallen. Die erste Hälfte des Buches hat mich quick vergessen lassen das es sich um einen mystery handelt.Aber dann wurde es so heftig das ich nicht aufhöhren wollte zu lesen. So muß ein guter mystery sein." 29. Mai 2012
"Sehr spannend und intestine geschrieben. Am Anfang etwas zäh, jedoch bleibt immer die Neugierde auf das used to be noch kommen könnte und guy wird nicht enttäuscht. " 1. Juni 2012
Trotz der ganzen, sagen wir mal "Unstimmigkeiten", hat mich das Buch recht intestine unterhalten, teilweise battle es echt spannend und ich habe es auch sehr schnell durchgelesen. Ich fand es eigentlich "GUT". nine. Juni 2012
"Leicht zu lesen, und guy möchte unbedingt wissen wie es denn nun ausgeht. " 10. Juni 2012
"Ausgezeichnet fand ich die Detailtreue in der Beschreibung jeder einzelnen Szene, sowie die Gedankengänge der handelnden Personen in den jeweiligen Szenen. Da habe ich mich manchmal selber ertappt gefühlt. Die verwendete Sprache ist flüssig und eingängig, stilistische Mittel häufig eingebracht. " 10. Juni 2012
"Nachdem ich von dem gleichen Autor "Fluchtpunkt Malta" gelesen habe, used to be mir sehr intestine gefallen hat, habe ich auch dieses Buch gelesen..." three. August 2012

Es gibt natürlich auch unfavorable Kritiken. Zunächst einmal kann ich als Autor nichts dafür, wenn eine Datei nicht geöffnet werden kann, denn die technische Seite ist ausschließlich Sache von Amazon. Warum das Buch deshalb abgewertet wird, kann ich nicht nachvollziehen, denn dies hat weder etwas mit Inhalt noch mit dem Autor zu tun.
Sollten in dem Buch trotz aller Korrektur noch immer Rechtschreib- oder Grammatikfehler stecken, so bitte ich dies zu entschuldigen. Dieses Buch wurde von keinem Verlag überarbeitet, und jeder, der schon einmal in seinem Leben korrekturgelesen hat, weiß wie leicht guy Fehler übersieht und das eigene Gehirn falsche oder fehlende Worte ergänzt.
Übrigens passiert es auch dem Leser, dass er Fakten überliest, wie diejenigen, die das fehlende modify des Kindes bemängeln, obwohl es bereits auf der ersten Seite genannt wird oder eine Figur wie Jochen unverhofft auftauchen sehen, obwohl der bereits zuvor in mehreren Szenen ausführlich beschrieben worden ist.
Die Geschichte handelt von realistischen Menschen vor einer Kulisse, die genauso existiert, wie sie beschrieben ist. Die Geschichte handelt nicht von unrealistischen Helden, wie sie auch im wahren Leben nicht vorkommen.
Man muss sich additionally auf Personen mit Schwächen einlassen – so wie sie im realen Leben vorkommen, Menschen wie du und ich. Mit überwiegend sympathischen Helden kann ich nicht dienen – nur mit Menschen, die Probleme und Schwächen haben und dies auch zeigen.
Einlassen heißt aber auch, die Entwicklung der Personen verfolgen, die nicht an einem unbekannten Zielort ankommen, um dort umgehend in ein künstlich angelegtes Verbrechen zu stolpern.
