- Brian Jacques(13)Aktuelle Rezension von: Raiden
Das Setting ist wie ein typisches Kinderbuch. Eine heitere Gemeinschaft aus knuffigen Tieren lebt in einer Burg in eienr Welt ohne Menschen. So weit hat es sich mit der Idylle. Dann greifen Ratten an und es wird enorm blutrünstig. Die Story bleibt dabei aber recht flach und die Charkterentwicklung eher mäßig.
Anosnsten aber unterhaltsam und kurzweilig. Die Fortsetzungen werde ich aber auslassen.
- Brian Jacques(2)Aktuelle Rezension von: JuliaOThis one is not easy for me to rate. If i could have, I would have gone with 3,5 stars. But since the 0,5 are completely due to my personal preferences I'll go with 4.
First of, I bought this on recommendation, without even a glance at the summary.
I was appropriately surprised when I found out the book was about mice and rats and some other small animals. They are completely humanized though - so it's not an "animal story" but one where humans are completely changed to small creatures. This is my 0,5 stars of personal dislike, as I just can't imagine mice, walking upright, with a sword in hand at full sprint... Most of the time this didn't bother me, but there were a few scenes where it just made a scene that's not supposed to be funny completely hilarious in my head...
The other star goes missing, because the world is too black and white / good and bad. You know what'll happen right from the beginning, and the main character does develop, but in a 100% predictable way.
Still four stars though, as the story kept me well entertained, the plot was full of interesting ideas, the writing was fluent and even though I knew what would happen, the book kept me interested anyway. So if you are looking for something a bit different to read, this might be the perfect choice for you!
Oh, and though it's brimming with animals - this is NOT a nice story, and especially not a childrens book. Lots of death and quite a bit of blood in this one ;
