Okay! So it's the 27th now, and I'm ready to write my review. The first thing that should be apparent is that I loved this book. I gave it 5/5 stars, and it kept me up into the ridiculous hours of the night on both of the days that I read it. I recommend it to all!
Now, let's break it up.
Firstly, plot. One of the main reasons I loved this book was because it was constantly exciting. The plot kept up at a grea...more
All right synopsis first: Gwen is a sixteen-year-old girl who lives in London (the book was written in German originally so I'm not sure why that setting was chosen). Normal enough, but she comes from a family who can time-travel. Thankfully the gene bypassed her and was given t...more
It s funny, it s making you angry, its making you puzzling.
The lovestory (all of them) are clean and making your heartbeat going faster within 2 phrases.
A lot of you guys were complaining about how childish Gwen acted sometimes. That she is like a 12 year old instead of 16.
I have an opinion about that. You may not like it and I m sorry if that is so.
Becoz of my work, I see a lot of 16 year old girls and I can remember when I used to be 16 ;)
I was childish sometimes, a...more
Gwyneth is a member of the family of time-travelers. Every other generation or so her family produces a girl who starts uncontrollably t...more
"Gwyneth." I reply. Surely it wasn't that difficult to remember? I didn't go calling him Gilbert or anything.
Gwen lives a seemingly normal life in modern day London. That is- she has a family gifted (or cursed) with a time traveling gene and a best friend who helps her uncover her family's secrets as well as partake in one sided conversations with her ghost and gargoyle friends.
Her entire family is convinced that her cousin is the next, and last one to be born with...more
When I found out about this book I knew I had to buy it. Simply because the cover is so very pretty! Plus, it is written by Kerstin Gier. You can't go wrong with that.
To be honest, I expected some kind of vampire novel regarding the cover. I am kinda glad that I was wrong. Although I wasn't very convinced that I would like the time travel part. But Kerstin Gier proved me wrong. The time travel is kinda logical, exciting and mysterious. Gwen is a very nice heroine and Gideon is...more
Be', io non sono paziente quando si parla di libri. E l'ho iniziato.
Ruby Red is quite different than most time traveling books that I have read recently. Gwyneth, our main character, comes from family with a special gene that allows a person to travel. Of course, with great privilege comes great responsibility. A responsibility that Gwyneth just isn't ready to handle, which only adds to her likability. I bonded pretty quickly to Gwyneth. While her prestigio...more
Se psaním románů pro ženy začala v době, kdy zůstala víceméně bez práce. Se svými knihami měla úspěc...more
La protagonista non è di quelle che si odiano dopo le prime dieci righe, riesce anche a risultare simpatica nella sua goffaggine e banalità, e la storia è interessante ed abbastanza coinvolgente. Sarà che trovo che le storie con salti nel passato abbiamo, di solito, buone potenzialità ed ho...more
I haven't read a book that's been translated before... that I can think of anyway, but I didn't notice anything in particular that would have made me think that. It was written really well and translated very well! This novel is part of a trilogy and I must...more
Gwendolyn ha conquistato la mia simpatia ma Gideon è ancora tutto da vedere.
3, 75 stelline abbastanza piene...non aspetto altro che immergermi in "Blue": a quanto pare si dice che sia anche meglio del primo!
Ruby Red,set in present day London,follows 16 year old Gwyneth Shepherd as she discovers that she has a gene that enables her to time travel into the past,sometimes multiple times per day. Her cousin Charlotte has been prepared for this eventuality her entire life,but it turns out Gwyneth has the gene instead. This,of course,creates more animosity between the already at-odds cousins,and even more problems for Gwyneth since...more
Wie vermutlich schon jeder weiß, ist Gwendolyn Teil einer Familie, in der ein Zeitreise-Gen vererbt wird. Eigentlich soll ihre Cousine Charlotte dieses Gen geerbt haben, allerdings stellt sich heraus, dass nicht sie es is...more
¡Al fiiiiiin puedo volver a leer tranquila y terminar un libro! Ya sufría de abstinencia.
Este libro fue lo que necesitaba: ágil, entretenido, con una buena historia que promete mucho. Peca de ser muuuy introductorio, que te deja con más dudas que certezas, ¡y ya me muero por leer la segunda parte! Ojalá la saquen pronto acá.
Wieso mögen soviele diese Bücher? Ernsthaft.
Nur wegen dem vielen rumgefahre in den Semesterferien und da ich das als Hörbuch hatte bin ich irgendwie durch gekommen...
Gwen - Ist über alle drei Bücher hinweg die Karikatur eine 12-jährigen, die sich noch dazu sehr oft einiges auf sich einbildet. Wie oft regte sie sich darüber auf, dass man sie für blöd hält was Geschichte angeht und denkt sie baue Fehler? Und wie oft braucht si...more
en cuando gwen... pues me parece una protagonista bastante ubicada aunque hay sus momentos donde...more
In early chapter, it had already captivated me. I love the writing style and the setting. But still I didn't feel it would be my favorite. As I continued to read, I was totally infested to this book and couldn't stop to read!
The mystery is so engaging, and it kept me to read until 3 am. All the time travel aspects ar...more
I'm not a fan of historical books (it all started out with Clockwork Angel.. didn't like that book much) so I was hesitant to pick this book up at first, but it has been recommended to me and it was on sale so why not try it? I am SO happy that I did, and I loved it! The characters were witty and the book was filled with descriptions that will not bore you, but will make you curious and wanting to read more. The writing style is GORGEOUS and perfect. I really...more
