Das Traumbuch ePub ó Download à Nina George ✓ [PDF / Epub] ☄ Das Traumbuch By Nina George – Dogsalonbristol.co.uk From the New York Times and internationally bestselling author of The Little Paris Bookshop comes a delightful offbeat charming and bittersweet tale about the distance one man will travel for theAn accident happens Sam reads about it in the newspaper his father is a hero now in a coma in hospital So their first meeting takes place there alongside the hospital’s neurologist whom the staff name God and is the first person to treat Sam as an eual in intelligence And that’s because Sam due to a condition called synaes The ripples of tragedies were too sensory overloaded for meSo while I was engaged in the story from the start I was grappling with the believability chain of events as well With several mishaps right away they didn’t feel authentically believable to mebutok I went with it I appreciated the concept of this book especially the authors personal connection to this novel with her own father’s death but I honestly wasn’t drawn to reading it until recently when my friend verbally told me how much she loved it So I gave it a go having loved “The Little Paris Bookshop” by Nina George The primary theme the author explores is the border between life and deatha powerful theme to contemplate There are parts in this book that were compelling to think about This excerpt is one them“How must they feel all the people whose beloved lies in a coma? Do they remain ‘faithful’ in the most innocent sense of the word? Do they long for sex the touch of skin laughter shared moments when life is full and sweet? Or do they die a little at a time because they no longer there to live? Do they abandon their lives completely and devote themselves entirely to caring and comforting? Or do they conserve some of their energy for themselves?” I wondered about this as a young adult when my mother told me that my dad spent his entire first year of their marriage in the hospital in San Francisco He had tuberculosis I wondered how my mother dealt with these issues once I was old enough to understand a little bit about life It was also easy to imagine the unbearable tension in the hospital each day “There are so many intense emotions in every bed in the ward One person has gotten lost in a very dangerous place another is hounded by mortal dread and yet another patient is running a fever I sense fatigue and tension as if there were taut strings and elastic bands crisscrossing the room Concerns aches and fear” And the gut reality of physically being in a coma “A catheter is hidden under Maddie’s nightie and tracksuit bottoms and two tubes are connected to her index finger There is a vial of eyedrops on the table next to her Further dropper bottles on the table by the door contain other medicines There are machines by her bed monitoring the oxygen and her blood and her heartbeat on a constant basis She is obviously fed through a tube that vanishes into her skin next to her collarbone Another tube protrudes from her neck; it’s hooked up to the ventilator” Butthe lines between reality and fantasy conscious and subconscious the different remembering‘s and retellings the dreams themselves put me into a comatose state myself It was a little bland and confusing The side stories felt odd to and unrealistic that my own emotions never got off the ground This book was much cerebral in thought than it was emotional for me 27 stars I appreciate the premises and purpose for this novel with much respect for Nina George but overall I had too many conflicted feelings about the storytelling itselfI had limitations with just how much I could transcend this human experience with my own heart
