Schnitt!: Die ganze Geschichte der Chirurgie erzählt in 28 Operationen by Arnold van de Laar: Although it took me ages to read, it’s still a book I recommend. There are so many interesting tidbits to learn from it. Like how Abraham was able to sire a son because he got a circumcision at the ripe age of 100 years. How a surgeon removed the French King Louis XIV a fistula removed from his butt in an operation which included spectators like his wife, son and other political representatives. Quite the stories!
Before (The After Series, Band 5) by Anna Todd: I’m glad that I am done with this series. It took only about two months of my life over. ‘Before’ is the final installment in the ‘After’ series and the shortest book so far. I still felt relief when the book finally ended. Although it was by far not the worst. After reading all five books I can truly say that the first one would have been enough. For the reader as well as the writer. She would have done us all a favor.
The Tattooist of Auschwitz: Based on the powerful true story of Lale Sokolov by Heather Morris: Based on the true story of the guy who made the tattoos. And while you first want to think he might be a collaborator, you later notice that he like so many other people had no choice. In the end it’s all about survival. The story is powerful to read and brings the horror to life. So important in these times when so many people seem to forget where hate leads to.
The Millionaire Booklet by Grant Cardone: Sometimes you have to look a gift horse in the mouth. This booklet was a waste of time. Two hours of banal phrasing which comes in the end to a change of the middle class mind. I was bored and can only tell you not to waste your time.
