Rezensionen zu The House in the Cerulean Sea - Hörbuch
A heartwarming and wonderful story!
Super schöne Geschichte mit untypischen Maincharakters, da durch sehr erfrischend. Der Mittelteil war etwas langatmig weshalb ich ewig gebraucht habe es zu ende zuhören. Ein wohlfühl Hörbuch.
Ich mochte die Story wirklich sehr.
Kurzweilige schöne Geschichte mit witzigen Charakteren und tiefgehender Moral.
I absolutely loved this book! It wasn't particularly suspenseful and exciting but it was so much better! It was such a heart warming story and the characters were so beautifully written, that I just fell in love with them immediately! The best thing about this book is that the author is soooo good at writing with so much humor I had to laugh out loud so many times! This just showed me again that a book doesn't need to have a overly exciting storyline to become a capturing book, but an author that knows how to write with witt and humor! Absolutely recommend this!!
Ungewöhnlich und einfach wundervoll
Da war leider kein Spannungsbogen
Das Buch war genau so wie ich es mir vorgestellt habe! Die Charaktere hätte ich gerne direkt mit nach Hause genommen, die Landschaft hörte sich so wunderschön an, dass ich gerne direkt dorthin gezogen wäre! Das Buch ist wie einer dieser Träume, an die man sich gerne zurück erinnert und die immer ein warmes Gefühl im Bauch hinterlassen.
Beautiful and open minded adolescence book. Being-friendly as it is supposed to be!
Such a heartwarming story with marvelous characters! Looking forward to read more of this author 💛
