• Book Review | Kati Seck “Die Stille zwischen Himmel und Meer” •

By Posted on 2 759 views

I finally started another point of my → Single Bucket List: read more books. I guess it’s something you don’t have to put on a “single” bucket list, cause reading is something you can always do, but I didn’t want my list to be too short so I added it to it. ;) Anyways: I realized that I had only read two books in 2017 and this is way too little. Both of them were manuals, so not even the type of books I mean when I talk about my bucket list, so actually, I read zero books and that’s a sad fact. 

Yesterday, I went to the city to get my new glasses (yay!) and had some time left, so I visited a book store and started rummaging in their huge selection. I started with the best sellers and decided that I want to start with something that’s supposed to make me happy, so no crime stories or thrillers. And then I found the perfect book (thanks to its beautiful cover – I’m kind of superficial: if it’s a pretty book, I will definitely have a closer look, haha!) with a description that made me feel like it’s just for me. I’m afraid the book is only available in German, so my English review will definitely be shorter than my German one, but here’s a short recap:

Edda was kidnapped by a woman when she was only 5 years old and spent 12 years with here before she could escape. She went through therapies and got back to living with her mother but she was a prisoner of her fear, especially her fear of the sky and the sea. She decided that she has to do something about it and booked a very special vacation on the North Sea coast in order to face her fears and change her life. Due to an error at booking, a man, Sebastian, who got his own problems since his wife died in a tragic hiking accident in the mountains, also arrives at the holiday home and they have to get along together. And who’d have thought – they’re the perfect help for each other. ;)

The book switches between flashbacks and the present, is written from Edda’s view and very sensitive. I like how Kati manages to write such a poetic story, make those feelings available to everyone and perfectly shows the inner conflict of fear and wanting to break out and not be that fearful person Edda is in the beginning of the book. The characters are loveable and you can easily get attached to them. 

As you all may have already thought, I bought the book because of my own situation, my own fears. And the following sentence on the backside of the book cover made me actually want it: “a book for all those who have already felt lost some time”. And yes, this book was perfect for me. And it encouraged me even more that my way is the right one. That facing my fears is the only way to be free and live a happy life. I’m glad this is my first book on my 2018 list. And I’ll leave this review with another powerful quote of the book: 

“We all had fear, over and over again. But without the risk, we couldn’t fly and fall and not get up again.”

    Liebe Lu,
    vielen Dank für die Review, das macht mich schon etwas neugierig.
    Es hört sich für mich allerdings ein bisschen schmulzig an, so nach dem Motto ” Wenn Du nur einen Partner an Deiner Seite hast, wirst Du glücklich und es lösen sich all Deine Probleme”, dabei geht es ja im realen Leben darum, das Glück in sich selbst zu finden.
    Ist mein Eindruck da richtig oder täusche ich mich?
    Lg
    Kirsten.

      Klar, ein bisschen schnulzig ist es schon auch, aber definitiv nicht in erster Linie. Die Protagonistin will das eigentlich allein schaffen, aber bekommt durch Sebastian und auch andere den richtigen Anstoß. Ich fand auf jeden Fall nicht, dass es so nach dem Motto war. Gerade deshalb hat mich das Buch auch so begeistert. :) Ich kann es dir auf jeden Fall guten Gewissens ans Herz legen!
