Netflix’s “Atypical”

Netflix has given us many great original series. "House Of Cards", "Orange Is The New Black", "Narcos", "Stranger Things" and the controversial "13 Reasons Why" are just some examples. Over the last months, they've added quite a few more, with one series catching my interest in particular after a while. "Atypical" might not be a … Continue reading Netflix’s “Atypical”

“A Bigger Splash” by Luca Guadagnino

In my last post, I wrote about "Call Me By Your Name" by André Aciman and the adaptation that is coming out soon. Today, I am gonna tell you why I was so excited to learn that none other than Luca Guadagnino had adapted it for the big screen. It's not because I have seen … Continue reading “A Bigger Splash” by Luca Guadagnino

“Call Me By Your Name” by André Aciman

It doesn't happen often that the perfect book, at the perfect time, just falls into your hands. To me, it happened just a few days ago. I was visiting my mother (Hi, mum!) for a week or so to spend some time with her, celebrate her birthday (Happy birthday again!) and enjoy the heat and … Continue reading “Call Me By Your Name” by André Aciman

“Atonement” by Ian McEwan

Ever since reading "Never Let Me Go" by Kazuo Ishiguro and watching the film adaptation starring Keira Knightley among others I felt the urge to re-watch "Atonement", the film adaptation by Joe Wright from 2007, once again starring the brilliant Knightley and an equally brilliant James McAvoy. But before that, of course, I had to … Continue reading “Atonement” by Ian McEwan

“Letzte Stunde vor den Ferien” vom Neo Magazin Royale mit Jan Böhmermann

Dass ich ein großer Fan von Jan Böhmermann und seinem Neo Magazin Royale bin ist wohl schon bei meinem letzten Blogbeitrag über ihn aufgefallen, jetzt hat er seinen Status als einer der besten deutschen Entertainer noch einmal untermauert. Mit dem Segment "Letzte Stunde vor den Ferien" hat er nicht nur vier Klassiker der deutschen Literatur … Continue reading “Letzte Stunde vor den Ferien” vom Neo Magazin Royale mit Jan Böhmermann

“Never Let Me Go” by Kazuo Ishiguro

After re-reading "The Handmaid's Tale" by Margaret Atwood and watching the Hulu-adaptation I remembered one other dystopian story that had a profound effect on me. "Never Let Me Go" by Kazuo Ishiguro is a 2005 novel, was adapted in 2010 for the big screen by Mark Romanek, and a novel I never actually read. I watched … Continue reading “Never Let Me Go” by Kazuo Ishiguro

“The Handmaid’s Tale” by Margaret Atwood

Ever since Donald Trump has become president of the United States interest in dystopian novels such as George Orwell's "1984", Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World" or Ray Bradbury's "Fahrenheit 451" has peaked. Yet it is one novel in particular and especially its adaptation into a series that have caused quite the stir, with the series … Continue reading “The Handmaid’s Tale” by Margaret Atwood

Jay Asher’s “13 Reasons Why”

To be honest, I had never heard of "13 Reasons Why" or Jay Asher before the show of the same name premiered on Netflix, and even then I just saw it pop up on my screen as a suggestion and didn't bother with it. However, as the controversy around it grew bigger I decided to … Continue reading Jay Asher’s “13 Reasons Why”
