Jahrhundert in Serbien. Die ga 4. Sie kommt relativ schnell dahinter, dass auf dem Gut etwas nicht stimmt und dass sie von den Dorfbewohner als "Zugereiste" keine Hilfe zu erwarten hat. Jun 16, Tijana added it. Wundervoller Schreibstil, ein spannender und grausiger Plot und tolle Charaktere. Die Liebesgeschichte hat es mir auch sehr angetan. Endlich mein allererstes Buch von Nina Blazon. Und was soll ich sagen? Dieses Buch hat mich sehr begeistert. Irgendwie ist es ein ganz besonderes Buch.
Jedenfalls habe ich noch kein vergleichbares gelesen. Die Mischung aus historischem und Fantasy-Buch ist unheimlich gut gelungen. Am besten hat mir die Stimmung und die Welt des Buches gefallen. Das muss man wirklich erstmal hinbekommen. Die Geschichte war wirklich an keiner Stelle langweilig. Hier sind Vampire der pure Horror.
Nichts an diesen Vampiren wirkt in irgendeiner Weise positiv auf die Menschen. Sie werden allein als Bedrohung gesehen. Im Grunde geht es weniger um die Vampire an sich, sondern um die Menschen um sie herum, was ich sehr erfrischend und unheimlich spannend fand. Es wirkte einfach so wunderbar realistisch. Alle Charaktere fand ich sehr gut nachvollziehbar. Ich muss sagen, ich war wirklich kurz davor, aber ich bin mit meinem 5 Sternen doch sehr knauserig.
Das war die einzige Figur, die ich mir nicht wirklich vorstellen und nachvollziehen konnte. Vor allem, wenn ihr Vampirfans seid und Vampire mal aus einem anderen Blockwinkel erleben wollt.

I'm still not sure whether this book really deserves even 2 stars, because I expected more after reading that many positive reviews to "Faunblut" by the same author, though I haven't read this one so far.
So then I saw this one in my local library, I picked it up to give it a try. An error. I like the cover picture a lot, the supposed Vampire theme and the title sounded interesting as well. But I simply couldn't care less for the main character, Jasna, a 15 year-old girl, who is sold of by her f I'm still not sure whether this book really deserves even 2 stars, because I expected more after reading that many positive reviews to "Faunblut" by the same author, though I haven't read this one so far.
But I simply couldn't care less for the main character, Jasna, a 15 year-old girl, who is sold of by her father to get married in Slovania near the Turkish border in appr. The story starts promising and from the 1st view prospective of Jasna and she describes in detail the ruthlessness, inner thoughts and hardship of her family at this time and age.
However, at the end of the novel everything is resolved in just three chapters and simply ends too "candy-cotton-sweet" for my taste. I think that an appropriate ending, whether "good" or "bad" is essential for every book and in this case, the ending just didn't fit the storyline at all.
I was imagine while reading this books that Nina Blazon simply checked the plot before writing the climax and thought:" Hey, I just remembered that I write this one for teens, so I need to give it a happy ending. Otherwise, all these poor readers will be shocked! View all 8 comments. At the beginning it dragged very much and the plot could only offer little tension. Or maybe the reason for it was that there were too many open questions which made the reading not more interesting, but rather confused me. Nevertheless throughout the story I could overlook that and it became clear, why the religion was important for the plot and therefore has becalmed me again.
A fact which is to be lifted up high, because the story plays in Serbia in the 18th century and there it was rather unusual that a woman said what she was thinking.

The cheeky small brat was also always ill-behaved and had a heavenly stubborn attitude which makes me smile over and over again and made me fond of the character. Like with Heidi, it was for me just like that here with Jasna. Also Danilo was able to change himself to the positive and I was anyway from the first time on a fan of Dusan! Hence, to tell the truth, I also was a little disappointed at the end because the end happened too fast and too abrupt. I would have like to read more of the characters and their story and I was also eager to get a more exact view of their future life.
Es hat sich zu Beginn sehr gezogen und die Handlung konnte nur wenig Spannung bieten, beziehungsweise waren zu viele offene Fragen, welche das Lesen nicht interessanter gemacht haben, sondern mich eher verwirrten. Aber hier hat es mich etwas irritiert. Und hinzu kam noch, dass mir in diesem Buch die Dialoge nicht sonderlich gefallen haben, da sie teilweise zu altbacken klangen.
Was mir in diesem Buch am besten gefallen hat, waren die Charaktere. Etwas, das sehr hervor zu heben ist, weil die Geschichte in Serbien im Genauso erging es mir hier bei Jasna. Auch Danilo konnte sich zum positiven wenden und ich war sowieso von der ersten Begegnung an, ein Fan von Dusan!

So what nowadays has become a technology of orientation nobody would call into question is in its beginning intended to be a manifest technology of policing people; the officials do not hide this and therefore sometimes are confronted with resistance.
It seems that most often government authorities initiate numbering, although there are exceptions — the case of Paris and some cities in the usa , where private editors of town directories start house numbering 63 ; in the nineteenth century the task of house numbering usually shifts to the town councils.

Provisionally it can be said that house numbering was one instrument — among others as for example the census, ordnance surveyance and land registers — to create the modern state. Following James C. In the case of Vienna there are examples that soon after their introduction people used the house numbers to address letters or to publish their address in newspaper ads The numbering of whole villages, as applied for example in the Habsburg Monarchy.
The numbering of quarters, with a letter being used to symbolize the corresponding city quarter Mainz, Augsburg, Nuremberg. The numbering by block of houses Madrid, Mannheim. The numbering by street using the so called clockwise or horseshoe scheme. The houses on one side of the street are numbered with odd numbers, the houses on the other side with even numbers. The block decimal system mainly used in the usa, where numbers are reserved for the houses of every block of houses; this system is also called Philadelphia system because it was first used in Philadelphia Its primary aim was to prepare the introduction of a new military recruitment system, covering, above all, Christian men fit for service in the army.
But since the survey was also to serve the purposes of demographic policies, both female and Jewish souls were accounted for, as well, albeit in lesser detail. Thus, commissions comprised of both civilian and military staff toured villages and towns, proceeding from house to house and listing the individuals into reprinted sheets The number was denoted as a house number also by containing letters — figures alone were not considered to be sufficient as they might have been mistaken for a year-date.
Those houses had to be numbered separately and marked with Roman , or Latin, instead of German indo-arabic figures. This once again brought to the fore the sharp dividing line that was drawn between the so-called Christian and the Jewish souls — the mark Jews living in Prague were obliged to wear this dress code was abolished only in was attached to their houses, as well Thus, the order of numbers reflected the route the commissioners took passing through a certain place.
The system was only insufficiently prepared to cover changes.

When a new house is built in a village, it gets the figure that follows the number of the last house being numbered, even when it stands not near to it. If two houses are merged, one number disappears. The numbers that should guarantee order are messed up. The order that should guarantee orientation in space slightly becomes an order of time, that means: the smaller the house number, the older the house, what even today is the case in some tiny Austrian villages.
This statement seems to be valid also for the world of houses. One apparent sign for this is the often executed renumbering — up to five times in some Viennese suburbs —, a problem many local historians are confronted with, who have to consult complicated concordance tables to trace a certain house. In , a first renumbering has to be executed and again in It was numbered with conscription number In , it was demolished; on its place architect Peter Mollner erected four new houses.
One of them kept the old number — —, the three others got the until then not used numbers , and Finally, these houses got after new conscription or land register numbers, to In this way finding an address in a big city could become a difficult, time-consuming task, even if one knew the name of the street, because two houses standing side by side not necessarily were numbered with figures following each other.
In Vienna for example, it was decreed by resolution of the city council on May 2 nd Here the new house numbers are called police numbers to distinguish them from the fire cadastre or assurance numbers that were introduced in connection with the fire assurance. The Regulation concerning the police numbering of the houses is dated February 11 th and settles the shape of the new numbers. The assurance numbers are kept, but can be transferred in the entrance of the house; until today they can be found being fixed on the inside of the doors A statement published in a travelogue by usa geographer John Pinkerton suggests a different land of origin.
Pinkerton travelled to Napoleonic Paris at the beginning of the nineteenth century, when the revolutionary, section wise numbering was still used and made orientation very difficult. Pinkerton knew an alternative:. In the following years this system was used in many other us cities, and then was introduced in Paris The terminological work of the linguist Heike Wiese gives an answer to this question. Wiese distinguishes three kinds of number assignments. In this case numbers are used as proper names, as is the case for example with bus or tramway numbers, house numbers or telephone numbers.
So numbers can be assigned to objects for three purposes. First to determine the cardinality of sets, second to determine the ranks of objects in a sequence and third to determine the identity of objects in a set; there are cardinal, ordinal and nominal number assignments In the case of the house numbering per village or the clockwise street numbering system it is possible to mix the nominal number assignment with the cardinal number assignments. Here the number being assigned to the last numbered house equals the cardinality of all houses in the village or the street, as was for example the case in the Habsburg Monarchy.
Here the census takers could compile lists in that the names of the villages and next to it the last house number of the corresponding village were registered. By doing so it was possible to state that during the census of for example in Bohemia there were According to his Tableau de Paris everyone wanted to have the number one in his or her street, all wanted to resemble Caesar, nobody wanted to be number two in Rome; if a noble entrance gate would be numbered after a common workshop this would implies a pinch of equality to be watched out for The owner was arrested and the house completely demolished.
The house number was taken away and fixed on a stake being hammered into the position of the former house. The authorities finally decided that when a new house was built one should be cautious about fixing the number on the house instead of the stake So the house number is more resistant than the house that the number is fixed.
It survives the demolition of the house having been populated with dissolute people and waits for the new house to be erected and to be addressed by the number. The emptied space the address refers to seem to require a new building. Using this system the houses were not counted any longer but were only addressed, being given the fact that the highest house number of a street numbered in this manner did not need to equal the number of houses of this street.
This system will also make it easier to assign numbers to an empty space destinated to new buildings — analogous to the indo-arabic place value system based on the Zero So the history and the succession of the different types of house numbering can be regarded as a process of rejecting the cardinal number assignment and of strengthening the nominal number assignment aspect while maintaining the secondary ordinal aspect.
But sometimes it can be the other way round, which was true for the more recent history of Austria. This embassy was first accommodated in a tent, then in a container, and became a meeting place of the resistance against the unwanted government; the weekly demonstrations — taking place every Thursday — started here. Sometimes it can be a desired good.
So technologies of control and surveillance have a chance to gain acceptance, when the concerned citizens can appropriate them for their own purposes. Benjamin , Walter, Das Passagen-Werk.
