review 1: Prachtig (geschreven) boek (gelezen in de oorspronkelijke taal) over n starre, door biologie geobsedeerde biologie(!)lerares aan n middelbare school in de voormalige DDR. Het verhaal ontvouwt zich heel mooi vanuit de gedachten van de lerares en - tragikomische - conversaties m me...

review 1: Bei einem Format von knapp 12x17cm kann der Begriff Taschenatlas wörtlich genommen werden. Judith Schalansky, inzwischen bekannt für ihre sorgfältig editierten Bücher, versammelt hier in einheitlichem Maßstab 50 Inseln, von denen einige besonders Lesern bekannt sein dürften. Zu j...

review 1: Gleichmut kommt nach der WutEigentlich hatte ich nie etwas gegen Frontalunterricht. Da - mit genügend Abstand zum Lehrer - mir Raum fürs Träumen blieb. Die Gedanken der Inge Lohmark erschlagen mich wie ein mit Schönschrift voll geschriebenes Tafelbild meiner alten Deutschlehrerin...

review 1: The tale of a teacher nearing the end of her tether as the World as she has known it crumbles around her. It interests me that most reviewers found Frau Lohmark – the narrator, a middle-aged high school biology teacher in the former East Germany – entirely unsympathetic. I found ...

review 1: I thought I knew what to expect when I borrowed this book. It was such a strange thing for me to be interested in but somehow it touched my lizard brain and ignited the hidden explorer in me. I like facts when they are interesting and to be honest that's what I thought this book ...
