That was so enigmatic! I feel like I just want to curl into a corner and cry.
When speaking of this book I just want to say, that I remembered next to nothing of the books prior to this in the series. So basically it was like being a confused puppy!
But it was such a great book, the prior introductions weren't as necessary as one would assume.

Jacob reckless, I mean even the choice of name makes you cringe with excitement. There was so much dynamic between characters, so much innovation in retold f

Ich liebe den Schreibstil.
Ich liebe Fuchs und Jacob.
Ich hasse das Liebesdreieck.
Ich hasse die vielen Perspektivwechsel.
Uuuuund der rote Faden fehlt.

So könnte man meine Erfahrung mit diesem Buch in wenigen Worten in etwa zusammenfassen. Wenn ich an Reckless denke, dann schwanke ich grundsätzlich zwischen Begeisterung und Langeweile. Ich muss dabei sogar gestehen, dass ich Teile dieses dritten Buches nur überflogen habe, anstatt sie komplett zu lesen. Das Worldbuilding, der beeindruckende Schreibs

I'm so addicted to this series it's becoming ridiculous. I just wanted to rush through and read the whole thing because LOVE ... but I also wanted to read slowly so it never ended?!? Do you see the PROBLEM HERE?!? I just can't get over how darkly and beautifully magical it is and how it manages to make me feel all things and be so deeply in love with the world and characters that I'm just basically a small puddle of adoration.

Also a small puddle of despair because the next book is NOT IN MY LIFE

I'm very sad that this is the last Mirrorworld book that is currently published. Who knows how long we will have to wait until the next one! Sigh.
However! Once again a wonderful trip into this amazing world full of magic, villains and secrets. Jacob and Fox are swept up into so many different tasks and treasure hunts; Jacob's brother Will once again follows him through the mirror to

"He took her to be stupid, like all women. The discarded mistress of a King.
Love had made her so small."

I always find it impossibly hard to review Cornelia Funke's books. The thing is, they are complicated, they are convoluted and many-sided, their plots are like clocks put to work by some inconceivably refined gears, and the very same definition can be applied to their characters. In books like hers, there are wheels within wheels and worlds within worlds and secrets you will never uncover,

My Least Favorite Cornelia Funke Novel

I loved many of Cornelia Funke's earlier novels, particularly the charming Inkworld series. She's an imaginative and original voice. These books were suitable for children and adults.

Alas, I haven't felt the same way about the "Mirrorworld/Reckless" series. These are darker. They're supposed to be dark romantic fairytales for adults. Think "Through the Looking Glass" but much darker and not humorous.

The series tracks the adventures of Jacob Reckless and his

This time we're crossing into unknown territory so there is even a map at the beginning of the book (or maybe the publisher only included it because it's fashionable now).

Anyway, there are as few illustrations as in the second book (only at the beginning of the chapters, meh) but they are as gorgeous as ever (yay)!

As you know by now, Jacob and Fuchs are still a team and we're still travelling through the world behind the mirror that gets savaged by progress (yes, I don't like it one bit), the wa

This book started out really slow and took forever to actually build some kind of interesting story. The world and all it's fascinating details were beautiful, but it still lost it's magic for me. Only the last 100 pages really pulled me in again like the previous books did and convinced me that Cornelia Funke still hasn't lost her talent to enchant you with her words and world building.

The characters were not as endearing as I remembered them, I honestly liked some of the supporting characters

Finally. I was looking forward to this book for quite some time. I know many people disliked „Reckless“, because of its difference from Funke’s other books, especially Inkspell. Well, I admit I wasn’t very smitten with the first book in the first place, but it really crept up on me. I have read the series twice now, which is a pretty good idea before reading the third book. Just so you are back on track. This is one of these rare occasions where I like the second book much better than the first. ...more

Recensione pubblicata su Cronache di Betelgeuse

Jacob e Volpe ci avevano lasciato con il fiato sospeso nell’avventura precedente. E riprendiamo le vicende proprio dove si era concluso il libro precedente, con un nuovo e pericoloso avversario. Ovviamente aver recuperato un’arma incredibile e potente rischia di attirare troppe attenzioni, specie se non si sa bene come maneggiarla.

Jacob purtroppo dimostra ancora una volta come il desiderio e la realtà siano due cose completamente differenti. Il nost

Ihr ist die Puste ausgegangen. Das habe ich zum Schluss dieses Bandes gedacht. Immerhin sind über 2 1/2 Jahre ins Land gegangen, seit dieser Band erschien und es ist immer noch keine Fortsetzung am Buchhorizont zu sehen.
Nicht dass Cornelia Funke aufgehört hätte zu schreiben. Sie hat nur diese Reihe ad acta gelegt. Zwischen Band 1 und Band 2 lagen zwei Jahre, der dritte kam nach 2 1/2 Jahren und nun? So kann man keine Bücher lesen. Das ist eine zusammenhängende Reihe. Wenn Autoren es nicht schaf

Sin dudarlo se lleva la más alta calificación. Funke está hilando una de las mejores historias que he leído: ha creado un mundo donde conviven los seres fantásticos de las tradiciones antiquísimas de los cuentos de hadas y conviven sin perder un ápice de lo que las hace ser quienes son. Brujas, hadas, gnomos, duendes, animales fantásticos. Un mundo en el que todo quisiéramos estar. Desarrolla los personajes de tal manera que casi se pueden tocar, ver, oler. Y la historia de amor que se desarroll ...more
I feel like this series keeps getting better and better. Maybe it's because the plot is more exciting to me or maybe because I finally start to grow on the characters, even the "bad" ones, because they're getting more layers. I just know that I can't wait for the next book. I don't want to spoil anything since the book isn't out yet in the US. I just want to say: If you liked the first two books you're gonna love this one even more :)

Yeah, well, so much for that.

Mit Reckless: Das goldene Garn und mir wollte es generell nicht so ganz funktionieren und ich bin unsicher, woran es liegt. Am Buch oder daran, dass ich fast drei Monate dran gelesen habe. Es hat durchaus spannende Passagen – für die Charaktere steht tatsächlich etwas auf dem Spiel und die Situation wird zunehmend kompliziert: Die Erlel
I'm still trying to catch my breath after this tremendous book. I'm amazed and can barely put a name to what I'm feeling. "Incredible", "Amazing", "Unbeliable", "Breathtaking"... Pick one, whatever you like the most. That's what I'm feeling, and more. Maybe this is my fanatic spirit talking, but Cornelia definitely deserves every praise that I could think of for this book.
After years of waiting, I finally could return to MirrorWorld. Along this three books, this world, that began as Jacob's dre

Auch der dritte Teil der Reihe ist für Fantasy-Fans ein absolutes Muss - neue Länder und neue Figuren zeigen die Spiegelwelt noch vielfältiger! Schön finde ich die Entwicklung der Liebesgeschichte zwischen Jacob und Fuchs und das offene Ende, welches die Vorfreude auf eine Fortsetzung noch größer werden lässt. Für mich hatten die ersten beiden Teile mehr Spannung, trotzdem absolut zu empfehlen!

Immer noch eine schöne Welt zum Eintauchen, auch wenn dieser Teil weniger Fahrt hatte als der zweite. Ein paar Sichtwechsel haben den Fortlauf der Geschichte hinausgezögert. Alles in allem aber definitiv das Lesen wert! 😊

Nur 4 Sterne, weil es einfach zu wenig ausgearbeitet ist. Das ganze könnte tiefer gehen. Ansonsten mag ich Jacob und Fuchs einfach sehr!
Original-Rezension: The emotional life of books

Meine Meinung:

Wir mussten sehr lange auf die Fortsetzung zu Reckless warten, um so größer war dann natürlich die Freude als es endlich erschienen ist und ich es in meinen Händen halten konnte. Noch am selben Tag fing ich also an zu lesen und schon war ich wieder mitten in der Spiegelwelt gefangen.

Cornelia Funkes Schreibstil ist gewohnt großartig. Sie beschreibt genau so viel, dass dem Leser Bilder vor dem inneren Auge erscheinen, aber nicht so viel

4.5 Sterne

Am Anfang hagelt es zahlreiche Schläge ins Gesicht. Das wird eingeführt, jenes begriffen, solches ausgeführt und ein Stolperstein nach dem anderen in den Weg gelegt. Die Situation wirkte aussichtslos und beinahe überladen. Stück für Stück verläuft sich das am Ende alles und es ist ein wenig als würde die Flamme erstickt bevor sie in einem großen Feuerwerk enden kann.
Ich mochte den Weg, keine Frage, die neuen Ecken der Spiegelwelt (Russland, Baba Yaga, Zaren, haach) zu erkunden war ein

Nach so vielen Jahren in der Welt hinter dem Spiegel hätte Jacob Reckless eigentlich geglaubt, dass er es wohl mit so ziemlich jedem Gegner von dort aufnehmen kann. Doch die Bedrohung, der er sich jetzt gegenüber sieht, ist weit älter als so mancher Zauber, den Jacob im Laufe der Jahre ausfindig gemacht hat. Denn dieses Mal sind es die Erlelfen, die es aufzuhalten gilt. Ein Gegner, der au

Ich habe eine ganze Weile gebraucht, um wieder in das Buch hinein zu finden, was zum einen daran lag, dass es schon wirklich ewig her ist, dass ich die ersten beiden Bände gelesen habe, und zum anderen daran, dass das Buch durch die wahnsinnig kurzen Kapitel und gefühlt hundert verschiedenen Charaktere und Sichtpunkte am Anfang wirklich sehr konfus ist. Das Ende war dann aber wieder richtig packend und einfach nur gut und hat den etwas schwierigen Einstieg für mich wieder rausgerissen.

Reseña de toda la saga hasta el momento

Mi amor por Cornelia Funke no es secreto ni nada nuevo. Cornelia llegó a mi vida cuando el Fondo de Cultura Económica decidió sacar ediciones más económicas de sus libros, que agonizaban porque Siruela los tenía tan caros que no podías ni soñar en comprarlos. Desde entonces, hemos tenido un idilio: a mí me gustan la mayoría de sus personas (exceptuando Muerte de tinta) y los compro todos religiosamente mientras van saliendo. A

Terzo libro della serie Rekless e, purtroppo, non l'ultimo.

Non bisogna fraintendermi, il libro mi è piaciuto, ma mi aspettavo la parola fine alla storia. Anzi, già pregustavo la risoluzione ai mille intrecci... e invece nulla, sono rimasta a bocca asciutta.
E chi avrebbe mai pensato ad ulteriori alti due libri?? Chissà se mai verranno pubblicati anche in italiano.

Ma torniamo a noi.

It had been a good few years from reading the second book in this series so admittedly when I started reading this I found myself a little bit lost and had to familiarise myself again with the events that took place in the two previous books, once familiarised it was so easy to delve back into this story and the characters, I love Cornelia's writing style and imagination she literally does bring all those fairytales and myths together to form such a beautiful and eventful story, it's one of them ...more
