    Kindle Edition ´ Der Spielmann eBook º spielmann free, Der Spielmann MOBIThe book just gripped me from the first page until the last becoming a novel not to put down until finished Set in Germany of the late 1400's and early 1500's just before Luther so in a land full of discontent and intellectual ferment but also one where the many local authorities and people for that matter were finding heresy black magic and assorted sins in any corner and the pyres were burning large and often while stonings substituted them when the crowd was uicker than the lawMarked from birth as an outsider Johann Georg Faustus the lucky one since his birthday occurred in a very favorable astrological moment and nicknamed so by his abused mother whose husband believed Johann a product of adultery and never accepted him while his brothers were village brutes taking after their father must flee from home as a teenager and falls under the spell of

    Kindle Edition ´ Der Spielmann eBook º spielmann free, Der Spielmann MOBIA sinister read The hairs stood up on the back of my neck as soon as I started although I had no idea of the dark route the story would travel Aiding these feelings were the descriptive notes of the places and times ringing all too trueIn the prologue we're located in Germany in theKnittlingen in the Kraichgau 27 October AD 1486 Further we're told that In the fall that the children disappeared the jugglers came to town And as the young Margarethe says to her childhood friend Faustus “jugglers and musicians are children of the devilThat’s what the church says Whoever dances to their music they lead straight to hell“

    Kindle Edition ´ Der Spielmann eBook º spielmann free, Der Spielmann MOBII couldn't help to compare this to the The Name of the Wind with the central character living by his wits being unbelievably intelligent practicing magic and being pursued by something very evil But in this book the story is well told doesn't linger of the mundane and is stepped in late 15th and early 16th German history A much better experience More so as it is a fictional depiction of Faust which the author nicely covers in the AfterwordIt's probably not the greatest written story but overall it was an enjoyable one

    Kindle Edition ´ Der Spielmann eBook º spielmann free, Der Spielmann MOBIThe atmosphere was creepy dark and gripping The plot was great and I enjoyed the writing so much that I finished the book in 3 sittingsHowever I had an issue with Johann's decision making and character description He's this super smart guy but he behaves daft and cannot put 2 and 2 together when it comes to the situation around him I was uite frustrated at times he traveled with Tonio for a long time and clearly knew the 2 crows and one Raven and when he sees them following and watching him he just pushed the thoughts away and can't make the connection So 3 stars for an entertaining and readable book As native German speaker I must say the translator did a good job even with the children's rhymes and songs

    Kindle Edition ´ Der Spielmann eBook º spielmann free, Der Spielmann MOBII wish historians wrote as well as Potzsch In retelling the Faust story he also serves up the flavor of life at the timeHis telling of the possible story behind the Faust legend has merits as it is worthy of any urban fantasy novel my favorite genre being published today The difference is his urban period is Germany and Italy in the late 1400s I was entranced pun intended by both the narrative and the description of daily life for the non royals of the period My only regret is I will have to wait another year for the seuel

    Kindle Edition ´ Der Spielmann eBook º spielmann free, Der Spielmann MOBIThe Master's Apprentice by Oliver Potzsch is a saga about a man who carries many burdens some of which he doesn't understand In many ways it is a coming of age story in which Johann comes of age several times It is a metaphor for most lives but in some ways Johann's problems are concrete even when he doesn't understand them It basically starts off when he is sixteen although there are glimpses of his life before that He has always fel
