Não foi uma escolha premeditada, mas sim uma sugestão da bibliotecária, que já o tendo lido, disse que o recomendava a todas as suas amigas.
Uma leitura leve e deliciosamente divertida A autora fala-nos de uma forma irónica, mas bastante descontraída, sobre os relacionamentos amorosos e sexuais.
Carmen, uma bem-sucedida e atraente mulher na casa dos trinta, sente-se constantemente assediada sexualmente, não só pelos seus clientes, como pelo seu próprio namorado, sentido constantemente que, os home

Recommends it for: people who are so bored they could either jab their own eyes out or read this book.
This book was very badly written. That's probably due in part by the fact that it's a translation. There are no chapters in this book and all they do all the time is go to each others' houses and eat. Very dull, predictable and LAME!!!

Iniziamo dalla protagonista. Una donna bellissima, dal corpo mozzafiato, che fa perdere la testa ad ogni essere vivente di sesso maschile nel raggio di 2 chilometri. Stufa del suo fascino e dell'effetto che fa sugli uomini, che da lei vogliono una cosa sola, decide che il problema va risolto alla radice eliminando il sesso dalla sua vita. Mette in pratica il suo proposito attraverso un annuncio in cui cerca un uomo impotente con cui avere una relazione. Ne trova un certo numero, abbastanza prome ...more

read the (org.)German version

Gaby Hauptmann is not a super talented writer and this is no masterpiece compared, so compared to other books i have to give it a 3 star rating,

but story-wise it deserves a 4, the book was fun to read. I liked the characters and the twist.
Sure lot's of weird coincidences and a story fir the little girl in us who still seeks their prince etc.
But it's told in a very charming way and I enjoyed it a lot !

Recommends it for: women, and men REALLY in touch with their female side.
I had to think long and hard (no pun intended) (well kinda intended) what I would give for a rating for this absurd fairy tale from Gaby Hauptmann. Had I picked up the paperback version of this book, I would've probably dismissed it for a bad German Harlequin romance novel (the paperback is very pink and obviously targeted to a female audience); I decided to read this hardback version simply because it was recommended to me by a (male) friend who said only that it was quirky. I rued my decision ...more

Sono un po' dubbiosa nel valutarlo... gli do due stelle perché leggo questi chick-lit raramente, e già li classifico come semplice letteratura d'evasione, senza pretese. Con questa premessa devo però dire che non è male come mi avevano preannunciato. Elvira, la sprintosa ottantenne, è simpatica, anche se ovviamente si sarebbe potuta renderlo un personaggio più profondo. Oddio, questa considerazione vale un po' per tutti: la protagonista, bellissima e di successo senza un difetto; la segretaria, ...more

Sottotitolo: non si è mai contenti di ciò che si ha. Ma anche: l'apparenza inganna. E soprattutto: in amore e in guerra ogni cosa è concessa.
Carmen, piacente 35enne, è stanca di subire le avance degli uomini in generale, e le continue richieste del suo ragazzo in particolare. Se per i primi non può farci molto, se non indossare un burka, nel secondo caso la soluzione è ovvia: scaricare il moroso e cercarne un altro tramite annuncio sul giornale. Caratteristica fondamentale, l'impotenza: così fin

Por sugestão de uma amiga, comprei este livro e devorei-o ao longo deste fim de semana. Sabe bem ler uma história descomplicada, com humor, e que nos conquista com a forma fluída e despretensiosa com que está escrita.

Na prática, é uma história de amor. É a busca de todas nós mulheres pelo nosso príncipe encantado, pela pessoa que nos preencherá e queremos ter a acompanhar-nos pela vida. É uma busca com final feliz, não fosse uma história, mas que pelo caminho me ajudou a questionar muitas coisas

Questo libro mi è piaciuto! La storia è simpatica ed è scritta in maniera scorrevole. Non è un capolavoro, ma la tematica è molto originale e anche io mi sono ritrovata un po' nei pensieri della protagonista! Inoltre il finale l'ho trovato molto carino e azzeccatissimo! Leggendo gli innumerevoli commenti negativi su questo libro mi aspettavo molto ma molto peggio..!!!!

Kauniin , seksikkään naisen ikuinen ongelma: miehet näkevät vain rinnat , pitkät ,punaiset hiukset ja sorjat sääret. Naista ei kohdella järkevänä ihmisenä vaan mahdollisena kohteena. Niinpä ratkaisua on etsittävä kykynemättömistä mihistä, lehti-ilmoituksella. Ja niitähän löytyy. Hauska kirja, herättää myös ajatuksia niin miesten kuin naistenkin ongelmista.

Jahrelang kannte ich lediglich den Film. Als ich letztens mit einem Büchergutschein in der Tasche dieses Buch entdeckte, dachte ich mir, müsste ich doch eigentlich auch mal lesen. Der Film gefiehl mir doch sehr.
Als ich nun das Buch las, merkte ich mehr und mehr, wie unterschiedlich doch das Buch und der Film sind. Beides auf seine Weise gut, aber doch sehr unterschiedlich. Nichts desto trotz las ich das Buch in Null komma nix durch. Würde ich es nochmals lesen? Sicherlich. Nur im Moment warten n

Entertaining chick-lit novel with a difference! Suffering from a plethora of (unwanted) male attention and exhausted from their constant demands; "uber-babe" Carmen Legg decides to advertise for an impotent man to have a relationship with.

Schrecklich, der übermäßige Einsatz von Ausrufezeichen! Als ob alle ständig nur rumbrüllen. Bei den simpelsten, einfachen Aussagen in direkten Reden, wurde ein Bekräftigungsrufzeichen ans Ende gesetzt, welche mir persönlich schnell auf den Geist gingen und ich ständig Lesepausen machen musste.
Die Story ist hier und da spritzig und auch durchaus liebevoll (Beschreibung von Freundschaft und Finden neuer Freunde), aber all die Zufälle und das übertrieben-überzogene philosophieren sind etwas zuviel.

Simpaticón libro, yo no diría que es precísamente literatura, pero me divirtió leerlo. De esas típcas historias de mujeres, supermujeres, que tienen todo menos un hombre que las apoye y les de su incondicional amor. Incluso juega con la idea de que muchas mujeres en el fondo sí quieren a su macho que las tenga medio dominadas. Así, muy light, fácil de leer y entender... Yo díría que para nivel B1 está bien..
Bramha Raju
Amusing :)

It is an amusing story of a beautiful woman who sets out for the impossible- in search of a man who is not ruled by lust. This is a feminist tract in the form of a light, amusing novel. But on a serious note, it begs the question of whether modern women really know what they want from a man.

Nederlandse titel: Gezocht: Impotente man. Leuk, ontspannend boek. Het hoofdpersonage is egoistische macho's beu en besluit een advertentie te plaatsen om impotente mannen te leren kennen. Amusant boek om te lezen. Grappig geschreven.

The first 100 pages were very badly written, the ending totally predictable as for the rest I wouldn't know because I wasn't able to get through with it. So it may actually be excellent. I guess I'll never know.

Tämä oli vähän pettymys. Idea oli hauska, ja siitä olisi saanut irti muutakin kuin mitä tämä kirja tarjosi. Kirjan henkilöt olivat tosi pinnallisia ja juoni tökerö.
