how crazy Gwydion's Dawn in general can beIch habe dieses Buch genossen obwohlch zu Beginn nicht richtig wusste was ch davon halten sollte Vielleicht kam das daher dass ch den Autoren nicht kannte und auch nichts von dem Land und der Kultur ueber das es geschrieben wurde wusste Vermutlich Da gab es auch einige die ch nachschlagen musste weil sie mir ueberhaupt nichts sagten Was mich am lesen gehalten hat war die Frau die sich die Hauptperson verliebt hatte Ich denke diese Geschichte st Strahlend In Purpur Und Goldd. Heilige Reich Von Konstantinopel in erster Linie eine Liebesgeschichte auch wenn sie oft als Hungerdesaster und wie die Charaktere damit umgehen beschrieben wird Aber Julia die verzweifelt versucht die verhungernden Menschenn Sierra Wildflowers: Mt. Lassen to Kern Canyon ihrer Umgebung zu retten war diejenige die mich am Lesen hielt Ich wollte mehr ueber sie wissen Ich wollte wissen ob die zwei zusammenkommen und ob es ein Happy End geben wuerde Dazwischen habech Neues ueber Suedafrika ueber das Leben El Guero Tellez/ Tellez the Blond: Reportero de policia!/ Police Reporter! in Afrika und wie verrueckt das Leben general manchmal sein kann gelernt I picked up this book from the library ast looked Haunted Louisiana: The Most Haunted Houses in Louisiana interesting but ultimately foundt to be frustrating It centres around a small South African medical centre as the staff try to deal with an nflux of refugees fleeing famine n Mozambiue But conditions are not great A Mistaken Match in South Africa either and the centre soon starts struggling to deal with having to feed and treat all of the refugees This aspect of the plot alone could have been exploredn detail but the book seems to focus on our lead character Brandt and his relationships with his co workers The romance between him and the leading female character felt awkward as Lodz if the author felt obliged tonclude a romance There was also a potentially nteresting thread about the tensions between Brandt and his black co workers learning to respect and trust each other after being brought up n a society that didn t see them as eual but again this aspect The Diminished is not explored as much ast could have been It Is A Short Book a short book all of these threads are suished and condensed rather than being given room to breathe Characters verge on stereotypes the drunken adventurer the difficult unconventional woman etc Having said that I did like that t showed off the multilingual aspect of South African society ncluding snippets of dialogue n Zulu with translations Eually t would have been nice to have a glossary of some of those Afrikaans terms which were left untranslated and which this English reader Claimed by a Cowboy is still not 100% sure what they meant There were also a couple of times where the word order seemed strange which I m going to put down to choices by the translator Overallt s a uick read only just over 200 pages and I think that brevity hurts the book It s okay but a longer book would have helped us understand about the characters and situation. Nd our reach; why can we not take the final step towards each other Bundu Discipline is about the people and the animals of Africa at the height of their beauty and the depth of their despair Its a love story and a meditation on the mystery of our powers and the limitations that we share with our brothers the anima. .and how crazy
