Klappentext:

Wie lautet der Spitzname von Tiffany Weh und wem hat sie ihn zu verdanken? Aus welchen Monaten setzt sich das Scheibenweltjahr zusammen und welches Jahrhundert schreiben wir dort eigentlich? Wie heißt die Hauptstadt von Bororgrawien und wie viele Meilen ist sie per Besenflug von Ankh-Morpork entfernt? Dies sind nur einige Fragen, die jeden Scheibenwelt-Reisenden umtreiben. „Die Scheibenwelt von A–Z“, jetzt in aktualisierter und vollständig überarbeiteter Fassung, weiß auf alle eine Antwort – ein Hilfsmittel, das kein Anhänger der Scheibenwelt entbehren kann.

 

Rezension:

Wie in der Zusammenfassung schon erwähnt: In dieses Buch sind alphabetisch die Schauplätze, Personen, Gilden und alles sonstige Wissenswerte verpackt.

Terry Pratchett schuf einst mit der Scheibenwelt eine Fantasiewelt, die jede Menge Bezüge zu unserer Welt hat, mit tausenden Menschen, Orten und Geschehen. Für verwirrte Einsteiger ist das Buch auf jeden Fall zu empfehlen.
In der neuen Auflage wurden alle Orte und Personen ergänzt, die mit den neuen Büchern erschienen. Auch die bisherigen Einträge wurden ergänzt. Im Gegensatz zur älteren Version erscheinen mir die neuen Einträge jedoch nicht so liebevoll wie die alten.

Die neuen Charakteranalysen sind recht knapp und nicht so facettenreich und tiefgründig wie in der Vorgängerversion. Es ist merkbar, dass diese von Stephen Briggs verfasst wurden und nicht vom “Herrn der Scheibenwelt” persönlich.

Insgesamt ist das Buch für Neueinsteiger ein Muss und eingefleischte Fans dürfen selber entscheiden, wie wichtig ihnen Details sind. Zwischendurch zum rumschmökern mit Freunden oder der Familie ist es auf jeden Fall eine gute Idee!

“Fantasy is hardly an escape from reality. It’s a way of understanding it.” – Lloyd Alexander #NaNoWriMo Day 8

Hello my lovely fellow bookworms!
It is crazy to think that already the first week of NaNoWriMo is done. 26% of the Month have already passed (at least where I live). As you might know, ( I think I mentioned it in my previous posts) I love to write at night. It is the time when I am the most creative. But it is also annoying, because I always wake up early, no matter what time I go to bed. So far this month, I probably only got around 6-7 hours of sleep a night. If this continues on, I am really scared of the next few weeks.

Anyway, today was not my greatest writing day. I think because I knew in the back of my head that I was still 500 words above my target, I was not very motivated today. Meaning I only wrote enough to catch up on the day.

 

Todays word count: 1,169

Total Word count: 13,372

I really hope I will get the chance to build more words than the target word count in the next couple of days, in case  I won’t I have time to write every day.

I will go to bed now, since I literately can’t keep my eyes open.

Hope you had a lovely day!

Good evening, everyone!

Why is it that I write best between 10 pm and 1 am? It is the worst time to write if you have to get up the next morning at 6am. Trust me, been there, done that. I went to bed late last night so I decided I should sleep in until 7 (gotta get my 6 hours of sleep someway 😝) Had some classes this morning and was the worst procrastinator this evening.

“You fail only if you stop writing”- Ray Bradbury #NaNoWriMo Day 4

nanowrimo_2016_webbanner_participantHello fellow crazy people!

Today it finally hit me. I had no idea what to write, how to write, and in general why I should continue this story. Every great idea I had ever had for this story, just didn’t add up with the current direction the story was going. To avoid admitting I have been defeated, I started cleaning everything in my room.
