So, the impression is best at the start and worst at the end. If not for that pathetic closing, I would've ceartainly added another "star".

The plot is fresh and the style is pleasant, but the emotions it causes are quite smooth -- this is not necessarily bad; even good for leiasure reading.

For me personally the specila delight "I made it!" in German :P

Schöner Start, faszinierender Erzähler, sehr lustig. Gewinnt im Verlauf an etwas unschöner Schnelligkeit, aber generell empfehlenswert.
