Review of 'Kleine freie Männer' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

Eines meiner Lieblingsbücher von der Scheibenwelt, jetzt vorgelesen weil das Kind im richtigen Alter dazu ist und etwas "Lustiges und Ernstes" wollte. Eignet sich hervorragend zum kapitelweise Vorlesen und hat die richtige Mischung aus Ernsthaftigkeit, ein bisschen Grusel, Witz und Spannung. Die Übersetzung ist gelungen, wobei ich finde, dass man den Nac Mac Feegle einfach ihren Namen hätte lassen können. Als Einstieg in die Scheibenwelt jedenfalls sehr gut geeignet.
