Die Analphabetin, die rechnen konnte by Jonas Jonasson PDF

Freuen Sie sich darauf, was once diesem herrlich verrückten Autor für seine neue Protagonistin eingefallen ist!

Die aberwitzige Geschichte der jungen Afrikanerin Nombeko, die zwar nicht lesen kann, aber ein Rechengenie ist, quickly zufällig bei der Konstruktion nuklearer Sprengköpfe mithilft und nebenbei Verhandlungen mit den Mächtigen der Welt führt. Nach einem besonders brisanten Geschäft setzt sie sich nach Schweden ab, wo ihr die große Liebe begegnet. Das bringt nicht nur ihr eigenes Leben, sondern gleich die gesamte Weltpolitik durcheinander. ..

Spitzzüngig und mit viel schwarzem Humor rechnet Jonasson in seinem neuesten Roman mit dem Fundamentalismus in all seinen Erscheinungsformen ab. Eine grandiose Geschichte, die dem »Hundertjährigen« an überbordenden Einfällen, skurrilen Wendungen und unvergesslichem Charme in nichts nachsteht!

Ever the actress, she was always ready for another comeback. Catherine, being Catherine, was sure to turn up again sooner or later. She had a talent for picking the worst possible moments to reappear. What made it worse was that she was the spitting image of her mother, Glynnis, which always hit Jeep square in the heart. Mags carried her mother’s high cheekbones, and had that same lithe body, but you could also see her late father in her: the coloring, the piercing green eyes. Mags was wonderful to look at, but Catherine was drop-dead gorgeous.

A long, noticeable silence followed, and had continued ever since. Either Catherine stewed in Brentwood, a beautiful wealthy neighborhood of Los Angeles, or she was stewed. Ever the actress, she was always ready for another comeback. Catherine, being Catherine, was sure to turn up again sooner or later. She had a talent for picking the worst possible moments to reappear. What made it worse was that she was the spitting image of her mother, Glynnis, which always hit Jeep square in the heart.
