I usually rate this writer highly but this mystery was a all over the place. ( )
  Condorena | Apr 2, 2013 |
Ich habe noch nie einen so unrealistischen Roman gelesen, wobei nicht einzelne Handlungsstränge an sich unrealistisch sind (wie in einem Action-Film), sondern die Personen beständig unrealistisch agieren und unrealistische Fähigkeiten haben.
z.B. zieht jemand neu in eine Stadt und ist nach einer Woche bereits komplett integriert in einem neu aufgebautem Freundeskreis

Ich konnte dieses Buch nicht ertragen und habe das Lesen abgebrochen. ( )

Vegan terrorists in Shanghai! Just what are you eating? The mind boggles, and the writing is first rate in this unique mystery novel. The squeamish bits will make the reader squirm, and the lessons on feng shui and physics will educate even those who didn't pick up a mystery book to learn something! ( )

Surreal story of militant vegan terrorism in China, battled against by feng shui detective Mr Wong. Terrorists are trying to assassinate the US President with an exploding elephant. Surreal? Yes. But also very funny. ( )
