[SuB-Aufbau] Englisch, Englisch, Englisch

Mit der letzten Amazonbestellung kamen gleichzeitig zwei Fortsetzungen von wunderbaren Reihen an, die ich schon seit Jahren lese und liebe. Dieses Mal habe ich mich daran gewagt beide in der englischen Originalversion zu bestellen, ich werde sehen, ob ich daran verzweifle, oder ob sie mir genauso viel Lesevergnügen bereiten, wie auf Deutsch.

One of our Thursdays is missing von Jasper Fforde (Band 6 der Thursday-Next-Reihe)

Klappentext:

Only the diplomatic skills of ace literary detective Thursday Next can avert a devastating genre war. But a week before the peace talks, Thursday vanishes. Has she simply returned home to the RealWorld or is this something more sinister?

All is not yet lost. Living at the quiet end of speculative fiction is the written Thursday next, eager to prove herself worthy of her illustrious namesake.

The fictional Thursday is soon hot on the trails of her factual alter-ego, and quickly stumbles upon a plot so fiendish that it threatens the very BookWorld itself.

Mary Ann in Autumn von Armistead Maupin (Stadtgeschichten Band 8 )

Klappentext:

Twenty years have passed since Mary Ann Singleton left her husband and child in San Francisco to pursue her dream of a television career in New York. Now, a pair of personal calamities has driven her back to the city of her youth and into the arms of her oldest friend, Michael “Mouse” Tolliver, a gay gardener happily ensconced with his much-younger husband.

Mary Ann finds temporary refuge in the couple’s backyard cottage, where, at the unnerving age of fifty-seven, she licks her wounds and takes stock of her mistakes. Soon, with the help of Facebook and a few old friends, she begins to re-engage with life, only to confront fresh terrors when her speckled past comes back to haunt her in a way she could never have imagined.
