    I read the original German and found it remarkable and then I ordered the English translation for my teen and read it again myself in English and disliked it intensely The English narrator sounded like a whiner and the German one sounded well echt The translation was uite close to the original so I can't really tell you what was going on in my head only that this was a much better German book than English one

    This book was pretty awesome Origianlly written in German it comes without a lot of that stupid baggage about omgi'mgaywhatwillidonow?howwillilive? etc i mean that's a valid experience certainly but not every ueer young adult book has to be about thatANYWAY What I liked most about this book was actually not at all related to it being a ueer book which is of course how it should be and therefore makes this book so much better My favorite parts were the really great descriptions of feeling like you're going out of your mind being bored by yourself and too big for silent places and just needing to get the fuck out EGSometimes it can be really uiet all around but inside everything starts screaming very loud and you just want to scream yourself or kick something or spit or bounce off the walls or somethingSometimes I feel so big inside that I don't seem to fitAlsoI have to go out I have to do something right now My room is too small It's afternoon again and it's always the same Too much the same too small Not just my room but this whole house this town I can't breathe here any I get on my bike and ride away from our house fast down the streets away faster right out to the country roads I ride and the cold rips my skin off with its claws I get a cramp in my side That's good I'm freezing my ass off That's good too because I can feel it all I'm not hibernating like the other marmots any My heart is beating faster as I pump my way up the hillAndI imagine what it would be like to just stand up maybe grab my coat Walk past the other desks chairs idiots who I've never exchanged so much as tow words with Stand up and use my legs Look outside there's a world that exists between 8am and noon Outside there's life to taste and smell and in winter it's cold Then i just keep going Leave this small town and go out through the fields and through one small village after another even farther than I've gone on my bike And maybe then I'll get on a train and keep going even farther And maybe I'll get to some place that looks nice and I'll get off And then maybe I'll stay there

    Girl from Mars written by Tamara Bach was originally published in German but it doesn't lose anything in translation It's a slim book which only took me about two hours to read told in the first person voice of fifteen year old Miriam who is suffering from intense ennuiWhen you live in a city life must be different Different from here In this small town every day is the same I get up but I'm not awake I eat but I don't know if I'm hungry I drink but my mouth stays dry It's winter but I'm still asleep Every day the sameMiriam's parents are affectionately disinterested and her older brother lives in the basement Enter Laura the new girl in school who kisses Miriam and then pretends nothing happened leading to a crisis in the teenager's life What I liked about this book as opposed to other GLBT first time stories was its bits of stream of consciousness narration Miriam's commentary is not italicized as thoughts as it might be in other contemporary works but instead flows organicallyLaura pulls her legs onto the couch and clinks my glass with hers CheersMaybe we're drinking too muchI want to kiss youI shouldn't drink so much I should have eaten somethingI'm sorry I'm so sorry that it's making me completely sadBach or her translator does an excellent job of conveying the angst the confusion and the joy of falling in love with someone who is completely opaue to you

    Miriam is a 15 year old girl bored with the town she lives in and almost all the people in it Almost There's a girl named Laura Different from everyone else Miriam finds Laura to be the most interesting and beautiful person she's ever seen As Miriam dreams of living in a big city she finds love thrown at her out of no whereGirl From Mars is a look into the life of an average teen who dreams big It's slow moving but engaging at the same time Interesting details and commentary are everywhere and leaves you wanting to see in general I loved the book a lot Miriam is a relatable character with all the usual uirks but also unexpected at times Either way this is a good book with hints of wisdom hidden between the lines

    3 12 star book It was rather uneventful for the most part just a nice peaceful read without too much excitement Might have been a 4 except the ending really sucked I'd like to read the original text in German one day because this translation really felt like a translation

  6. says:

    A perfect recommendation for a young person coming out and feeling the need for internal community It may have moved a bit slowly for an advanced reader

    Somewhat enjoyable and written in an unusual style not my favorite style to read but I won't hold that against the book since it's nice to read something different every once in a while although I could never uite figure out if it was trying to support teenage flings or out them as silly I went with the latter only becasue I'd loose all respect for the book if it was the former but to get there I had to read between the lines in a way I don't think i would have been able to do in my younger teens when I was in this book's target audience group It's possible the author was trying to say something by just leaving events as is and not putting any kind of obvious morals or conclusions in but it left me with the feeling that no one in the story really learned anything from the events that transpired This might be often accurate to life I remember going through high school with much the same perpetual raised eyebrow at my peers as I did while reading about the protagonist and her friends in this book but personally I don't think it's a habit that should exactly be idolized or encouraged so not a bad book interesting and a mildly enjoyable read Any deep moral lessons learned or amazing feelings felt? Naw
