So. A book.
There are some books that I love to read,
and some authors,
for example TCBoyle, Stewart O’Nan, and John Steinbeck,
who write wonderfully.
Of course I could tell you
that I read Goethe, Schiller and Thomas Mann – the great German writers,
or even the authors of the thirties,
which were banned for example Brecht, Seghers and Kästner.
Not to despise are also the postwar authors such as Lenz, Böll or Walser.
And maybe it’s almost a shame that I am coming –
who has the chance of a wonderful German, world-famous literature –
with a book to you which is now one might call trash.
But it doesn’t matter. I dare.
Diana Gabaldon … and the legend of the highlander
So now it is out.
Eight volumes, each with thousands of pages and (thankfully) no end in sight.
I begun to read,
one after the other until I had some time to read all the books from this one-off series years ago.
And now as soon as new comes from this series and no matter what it costs,
I’m the first to buy it.
Even if I do not immediately read it, I have to buy it.
It is at home, and I sneak about it how the cat around the milk.
I am filled with joy and excitement, how the series is going on,
what adventures will happen and if I will again meet all my old friends.
The book or the many books are about love,
Scottish and American history,
from adventures in the wilderness,
war and hate,
fights and justice,
and about everyday life of the American settlers and Scottish freedom fighter.
And the best part: the first volume has just been made into a successful series.
I was a little bit worried that the actors won’t embody what I had imagined the whole volumes.
And if it is described as, and if worked with due care. And yes, it was. And I was not disappointed.
