Seller Rating:. Am Anfang war das Licht. Eine Werkanalyse. Merten, Ralph. Published by Klett, Stuttgart Als hij de blinde dochter van een hofsecretaris van de keizerin onder behandeling krijgt, weet hij dat hij door haar te genezen toegang zal krijgen tot het keizerlijk hof. Het meisje is een uitzonderlijk begaafde pianiste.
Maar op het moment dat hij haar inderdaad lijkt te genezen, verlaat haar muzikale gave haar. Dan wordt de gewetensvraag gesteld: wat willen haar ouders liever: een blind wonderkind of een ziend maar middelmatig begaafde pianiste? Het eerste. En dus wordt de naam van Mesmer bezoedeld en kan hij zijn boeltje wel pakken. In het begin irriteerden de korte zinnetjes me enorm, maar halverwege raakte ik daaraan gewend.
En toen was het een easy read tot het eind. Zal geen blijvende indruk achterlaten. One thing I have to tell about this book is I love it. I love how the concept worked out so well and that everything goes smoothly. It suits so well with the background and when everything became so timid, I just couldn't stop flipping the pages.
I had to know what happened.
Am Anfang war die Nacht Musik by Alissa Walser
My expectations ran through the pages. But there were some parts which had me hard to understand and confused me a little. Other than that, I was off hooked. Beautiful and pictured so gracefully without a scratch. Me One thing I have to tell about this book is The beautiful story which captivates anybody who reads this book. Historical and wonderful atmosphere. I would have given a full 5 stars if there was no barriers of confusion. But emotions of mine have awoken by the time I hit this book. Truly recommended!!! Here's the link. This is a novel about Mesmer and his attempt to restore the sight of a blind musical prodigy at the request of the Empress.
Mesmer was the initiator of the use of magnets for healing. He is successful but that is really only the beginning of the story. We also see the reaction from his peers and how the media can affect the fortunes of a new idea in medicine. I had been really looking forward to reading this book but for some reason found it very difficult to get into.
“Im Anfang war der Rhythmus”
The novel has been translat This is a novel about Mesmer and his attempt to restore the sight of a blind musical prodigy at the request of the Empress. For me the story just never took off and I found it a constant struggle. I am sure there are many that would enjoy this book as a personal read and there are many fascinating discussions to be had if it was chosen by a book group. Nonostante vengano scanditi con precisione i tempi e i luoghi ogni capitolo inizia con una data pensieri, ricordi e avvenimenti si mescolano rendendo la narrazione disorganizzata e con nessi logici a volte lassi e non sequenziali.
I personaggi deLa musica della notte quindi ne escono appiattiti e gli aspetti introspettivi paradossalmente penalizzati. Feb 16, Jotwe rated it liked it Shelves: novels.
Am Anfang war... Die Schoepfung (English translation)
It was an easy-read and I liked that it was something completely different from my usual crime stories. It plays in Vienna in the 18th century and discusses the problems of a doctor trying to get acknowledged for his new method of magnetism in healing. His most talked about patient is a young, blind girl and the book nicely revolves about the problems of those two and how their lives get entangled.
Nice and easy-to read book that linguistically is more interesting than most books. I quite enjoyed this book.

I had to get used to the fact that the sentence structure is not the norm. I don't know if that is due to the translation, or if it is author's style. Either way, the writing is lyrical and descriptive - just as I like it! Nov 28, Priya rated it liked it. A thoroughly fascinating story.

I didn't like the way it is written, it is hard to distinguish dialogues from thoughts. Jan 13, Alena Dausacker rated it liked it. Very poetic, easy read without being under-complex.
