Wie bringt man einem Mann zur Vernunft? Und dass Stefan von allen guten Geistern verlassen ist, da ist sich Laura sicher. Er hat es fertiggebracht, sie komplett zu ruinieren. Dabei macht er nach außen auf dicke Hose, spaziert in Designer-Klamotten rum, serviert ihren Freunden nur den teuersten Champagner - und macht ihr die Hölle heiß, wenn sie bei Aldi nicht die Sonderangebote im Auge behält. Kein Wunder, dass Laura eines immer klarer wird: Ein Mann ohne Verstand ist wenig, einer ohne Herz ist gar nichts!

Auch die halbjährige Sendepause hat nichts daran geändert: Sie sind und bleiben ein Traumpaar. Keiner passt so gut zu Emmi wie Leo. Keine pariert Leos Ausweichmanöver so schlagfertig wie Emmi. Eine perfekte Beziehung. Wenn sie nicht einen Makel hätte: die beiden haben schriftlich Millionen von Wörtern gewechselt - zärtlich, werbend, barsch, schwärmend, hochfliegend, traurig. Aber sie haben sich noch nie gesehen.

Meet Ove. He's a curmudgeon - the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him "the bitter neighbor from hell". But behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

yes. The book is great

How could the performance have been better?

I did not like the Italian accent in English as the original is in Italian. However, Italian words and titles should have been pronounced properly, i.e. ispectore and vice questore

Was Through a Glass, Darkly worth the listening time?

yes

In this, their first adventure, Chet and Bernie investigate the disappearance of Madison, a teenage girl who may or may not have been kidnapped, but who has definitely gotten mixed up with some very unsavory characters.

Marion and Shiva Stone are twin brothers born of a secret union between a beautiful Indian nun and a brash British surgeon at a mission hospital in Addis Ababa. Orphaned by their mother's death in childbirth and their father's disappearance, bound together by a preternatural connection and a shared fascination with medicine, the twins come of age as Ethiopia hovers on the brink of revolution. Yet it will be love, not politics - their passion for the same woman - that will tear them apart.
