Reviews

Besser als der 4. Teil, und mit einem fiesen Cliffhanger am Ende...

Wie erwartet war auch der 2. Teil sehr unterhaltsam, die Seiten sind nur so "verflogen". Jennifer ist vielleicht etwas zu "erwachsen" für eine 16-jährige, aber in diese Welt passt das gut. Auch das Ende hat mir gut gefallen, besonders dass das Quarktier wieder aufgetaucht ist. Die Beschreibung beim Lied des Quarktiers fand ich besonders gelungen! Das Ende mit 4 Gigashandar kam dann gefühlt etwas plötzlich, passt aber.

Auch im zweiten Durchgang hat das Buch Spaß gemacht. Und jetzt bin ich auch wieder ganz in diese Welt eingetaucht und werde mit dem zweiten Teil direkt weitermachen.
