Dunker keeps us guessing for most of the novel, and when the truth is finally revealed, it's not at all what I was expecting. Foremost among them is the characterization of Nell's parents, who seem disturbingly unconcerned about a potential lunatic stalking their daughter at a remote campsite. I can't imagine any sane parents ignoring a call for help from a sixteen-year-old girl. As it turns out, Nell's parents' reaction becomes a necessary plot device, but it is not believable.vault.nexuspoint.co.uk/85.php
L'Uccellatrice (The Bird Catcher): Part I: Chi ha perduto l'amoroso (Don Narciso)
There's also an odd, detached tone to the novel that may or may not be the result of the translation the novel was originally written in German, and has been translated into English by Katja Bell. I found it to be very readable, and Bell has made an effort to "Americanize" the story there are mentions of "CSI" and other such colloquialisms , but Nell and Ida don't feel much like American kids.
I would have enjoyed the novel a bit more had the German setting been better developed. As it is, there's little in the story to connect the reader with its location.
Birdcatcher, The by Kristina Dunker
I will warn readers that Dunker leaves things a bit unresolved at the end and there is a central ethical dilemma that is frustratingly left hanging , but I liked Nell enough to overlook that. Parents, be advised that there are references to teen sex and teen smoking and alcohol use, but there is little profanity and no explicit content. This is a literate and well-paced story that is gripping from the start. I do recommend it. I was provided a copy of this novel for review; the opinions expressed her are my own. May 15, Jennifer rated it liked it. Nell and her friend Ida go on a camping trip together in a rather remote location with a lot of alcohol.
It quickly becomes apparent that they have a stalker. The stalker is more than likely Ida's ex-boyfriend that isn't taking the break-up very well. Honestly, I think that I can't tell you anymore without it being a complete spoiler. This story is familiar. I've watched and read too many stories with this same plot line, but for some reason I keep going back. Even though I kn Summary: Even though I knew exactly what was going to happen, I still enjoyed a great deal of this story. It moves extremely quickly and Nell is a particularly strong character.
Unfortunately, all of the other characters are fairly cliche or have no depth at all. If this was a movie script, perhaps the stock characters would be more understandable, but I'd like to have an emotional connection within a book. Ida is not that interesting and she is confusing. I'm not sure if this is a lost in translation thing, or if Ida is just a messy character. I found myself not liking her because I couldn't get into her motivation or explanation of anything. There is also an animal scene within the story that irritated me.
That's a personal bias though. This Young Adult novel, translated from the German, is a very dark sort of thriller. The sixteen-year-old narrator, Nell, really captures a youthful exuberance and really comes across as realistic. The plot unfolds in a manner that consistently hints to bigger and darker things to come, which really amps up the pacing and keeps the book or in my case Kindle-copy firmly in hand.
There are some elements of a typical teen summer horror movie practically abandone This Young Adult novel, translated from the German, is a very dark sort of thriller. There are some elements of a typical teen summer horror movie practically abandoned campsite in the middle of the woods, far from home - without a car , but the addition of the Jack Russell terrier, Rocky, adds a uniquely stressful element to the predicament that Nell and her friend, Ida, become embroiled in.
The relationships and the strong emotions depicted have a very realistic quality, and though the ending is left rather open, it is a solidly entertaining read and one that I enjoyed quite a bit! Mildly suspenseful, but not very deep. How an author could make me hate all the characters in one book is beyond me.
