Frankfurter Buchmesse: Romane und Neuerscheinungen

.

13 schlechte – und 6 gute (?) – neue Romane und Essays in deutscher Übersetzung:

Zur Frankfurter Buchmesse schlug ich die wichtigsten – und: interessantesten – neuen Titel aus dem Ausland bei Amazon und Goodreads nach.

Das Ergebnis? Zwei kurze Listen:

13 stark beworbene – aber, im Wertungsschnitt: überraschend schlechte – Neuerscheinungen.

…und 8 beliebte / vielversprechendere Alternativen.

.
