This is a plot easily ruined by knowing too much, like so many popular films one sees a week too late. Try to avoid reading the plethora of spoiler reviews. Not easy I know. As to the question of converting this book for film medias, it would make a gift of a screen script.
I don’t usually manage to read books in a sitting, however good they are, and I didn’t quite manage with this one, but not through lack of trying. Young readers for who the ‘70s are ancient history, and older readers put off by early pages of period ‘hippiness’, read on, you won’t be disappointed. This really is a good adrenaline rush read, not just another middle-aged author dreaming up a regretfully missed life of dope, speed, and sex in the sun. And yes, Sushi chefs really were moving in on Europe right back when baby-boomers were still young, even though we associate Japanese style cuisine more with western city life in the new millennium.
The book is so well written, especially when one accounts for the fact that Stanke is German, and writing in a second language, English. Correct me if I’m wrong, someone, but I don’t think this book has versions in German, Spanish, or any other language, and it certainly hasn’t been translated by anyone other than the author. Stanke has both a feel for language and the skill to weave a good yarn.
But some things have to end, and Aurora has to go home. They make a promise to meet back in 3 months if they both feel the same about each other.
Three months pass and there is Aurora. David is so excited he can hardly stand it. Only Aurora isn’t alone.
As they go to the cabin that David has rented, you can feel the tension, the questions, the uncertainty. David retreats to the woods for a jog. When he returns he finds his life has been turned inside out and upside down.
This was a riveting journey through another time, a time that was supposed to be happier, freer and it kept me glued to page after page.
Many thanks to the author who provided a digital copy in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
Falling in Death and Love was full of suspense, intrigue, and great characters. The characters were believable. I was able to connect with them. The main leading character, David is interesting. His life goes from routine navy duty to meeting a woman he falls for then to a dangerous action packed adventure. Life, love, and survival. David and his woman do pretty cool things that readers will enjoy reading about...I felt like tagging along with the characters. Never a boring moment for David. He literally goes from falling in love to fighting for his life. Corruption, death, and an intensity unlike any other will propel readers to the finish line. Magnus Stanke knows how to keep. Readers attention with every scene. I only wished that the point of view was done in another way. Overall, great read. I recommend it those who love adventure, suspense, and danger.
