Anfangs hatte ich einige Probleme, mich auf die Sprache und den Stil dieses Buchs einzulassen.
Der Protagonist Veit Kolbe schreibt wie ihm der Mund gewachsen ist und gerade am Anfang fand ich das ziemlich grobschlächtig (nicht im Sinne von vulgär, so

J’aurais peut-être dû lire un peu sur la biographie de l’auteur – dans ce cas, je crois que je n’aurais plutôt pas décidé de lire ce bouquin.

“Der scheinbar einzige Gast außer mir war ein junger Punker mit Hund. Er leistete mir beim Essen Gesellschaft, ernährte sich selbst aber eher von Flüssigem. Das Gespräch mit ihm war interessant, wenn ich ihm und er mir folgen konnte. Oft hatte ich allerdings das Gefühl, wir redeten einfach aneinander vorbei.”
Esther Kleinhage, Mit der Sonne Richtung Westen: Begegnungen auf dem Jakobsweg

“You've got to get obsessed and stay obsessed.”
John Irving, The Hotel New Hampshire

“I love staring at my books for hours just trying to decide which book to read next. Doing that is almost as fun as actually reading them.”
Love The Stacks Bookstore

“Je ne suis pas plus moderne qu'ancien, pas plus Français que Chinois, et l'idée de la patrie c'est-à-dire l'obligation où l'on est de vivre sur un coin de terre marqué en rouge ou en bleu sur la carte et de détester les autres coins en vert ou en noir m'a paru toujours étroite, bornée et d'une stupidité féroce.”
Gustave Flaubert, Correspondance

“When we stop believing in gods we can start believing in their stories, I retort. There are of course no such things as miracles, but if there were and so tomorrow we woke up to find no more believers on earth, no more devout Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Jews, why then, sure the beauty of the stories would be a thing we could focus on because they wouldn't be dangerous any more, they would become capable of compelling the only belief that leads to truth, that is, the willing, disbelieving of the reader in a well-told tale.”
Salman Rushdie, The Ground Beneath Her Feet

“I think prime numbers are like life. They are very logical but you could never work out the rules, even if you spent all your time thinking about them”
Mark Haddon, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

Danke für das Angebot! Aber ich bin doch mit einem Ingenieur verheiratet (der mir eine Excel Datei gebastelt hat, die die Statistiken in Prozente umrechnet :-) )
