The Hangman's Daughter | Oliver Ptzsch, Lee Chadeayne

Pickpick

Overall good story. I LOVE the way the ebook was presented. It had some fantastic colored and moving illustrations in each chapter. My biggest issue with this novel is the name. The daughter is nowhere near a main character. It's just odd. I'm hoping because it was originally written in German that they just scrapped the original title and gave the English speaking world this.🤷 #55 #2019 ##justlikeharrypotterone

julesG Sorry to disappoint, the German title was used (in translation, of course). Probably the title was chosen because books with "daughter of" titles were en vogue. 3d
kricheal @julesG HaHa! I should have actually looked it up before I posted! 3d
Texreader I remember it was a good book! But it sounds like the ebook was much more entertaining 3d

kricheal @Texreader Yes! I wish all ebooks were this way. I got it for free on World book day from Amazon. If you see that on the list when it comes around next time pick it up. 3d
Andrew65 Really enjoyed this one, but title is strange given the story. 3d
Crash As the series goes on it focuses more on the daughter. This book is the into to her character. 3d
youneverarrived I was going to say the same as @crash - as the series goes on she‘s a more prominent character. 3d
kricheal @Crash @youneverarrived oh I see, it's starting to make much more sense now. Thank you 😊 2d

Book #55: Dune is often cataloged as one of the greatest science fiction stories ever told and the precursor to all science fiction that has come since. It is also frequently listed as the first book within the bestselling science fiction series of all time. These are all titles that the book has rightfully earned. Dune contains parallels in religion...

I've heard such great things about this book! My current goal is to read an average of 11 books per month, and I just finished #55, so maybe I can get ahead a little bit... 😉

So so so good. And sad. And funny.
I hope they actually do come off hiatus after their year off! We need issue #55!

readingjedi I'm currently on volume 7 and reading as slowly as I can as the thought of there not being more Saga for me to read is too much to bear! 8mo

This book should really be called The Haunted Typewriter, because when Zackie find an old typewriter in a burnt down antique store he starts writing his greatest story yet... The story of the blob monster that ate the whole town! Little does he know that everything he rights on this typewriter comes true!

I know that this book takes place in the early 1900's and times were different, BUT I really hated Albert Einstein. Who knew he could be a villain? #55

JennyM I felt the same way about him after reading this book! 14mo
MaGoose I also felt like that after reading this book. 14mo
TNbookworm I felt the same way! 14mo
paulfrankspencer I'm sure a proper biography would be better, but the Einstein episode of Timesuck with Dan Cummins will also make you ambivalent about Einstein. If you can tolerate some irreverence and lots of language, that's an entertaining way to learn more. 14mo
Mollyanna Agreed! 14mo

Holy cow @Kaye thanks for all the loot! Especially all the new books! I have Educated on hold at the library but I think I‘m #55 on the list. And I‘ve never heard of the Bugliosi book you sent. Good thing we don‘t have anywhere to go this long weekend and the weather is supposed to be great so I can spend lots of hours in my hammock with all these books. ❤️

Kaye You‘re welcome. Hope you have a great birthday 🎂 1y
