I often read books, which are translated from english to german. This time I did it vice versa. The original book is called "Rubinrot" and it's a german one.

I ended up reading it in one sitting because I was so engulfed in the plot. There are so many questions I have that need to be answered so I quickly put the other two books of the trilogy on hold at my library.
I ended up ordering pizza from Dominos because I did not want to put the book down to cook. Why you may ask? Well, because this does not even remotely sound like a book I would enjoy. The blurb alone would be evidence enough of that, two particular sentences stand out the most: I, however, HATE plot lines driven by romance so I should have known better than to read this book, but guess what?
I didn't even read the synopsis. So that is just pretty much just a disclaimer to say that while I had strong feeling of dislike towards this book it is not because the book promised to be something more, I was just too silly to read the synopsis and know not to read it.
Now, onto the less than glowing review. One of the worst things about this book, for me, was how it read. Words and sentences did not flow together like they should, their were several typos in the first page alone and it felt like I was reading a book aimed at children rather than young adults in the sheer simplicity of the language.
Now, don't get me wrong sometimes simple language is a great deal better than the convoluted overly metaphorical language used by some authors but this was too simplistic. Now I feel a bit harsh commenting on the writing style and language as this is a translated book, so do bear that in mind if you plan on reading it.
It was not only the writing style that appeared to be aimed more towards pre-teens but the plot as well. The protagonist of the story Gwen was supposed to be a sixteen year old girl, but read more as a twelve year old. For example her discussion of "kissing boys" We often discussed what the ideal kiss would be like, and there were any number of films we'd watched over and over again just because of the good kissing scenes in them.
Not only is Gwen really immature but she also really dense. Okay harsh I know but she genuinely knows nothing, and can't even remember a password that she has heard like ten times, "The password? Or something like that.
There are plenty more incidents just like this that make Gwen out to be a total ditz. My favourite line of all had to be this, "When we had come in, someone had risen from a chair at the desk , nodded to Mr. George, and left the room without a word. It was the first thing that came into my head.
Gwen's best friend isn't much better again, more twelve than sixteen , she was the most flat and pointless character. She had no personality except to be the friend who googled everything and finds out loads of information and is soooo excited for her friend.
There was not one character in this story that I actually liked.
Gideon was, of course, the most beautiful specimen to ever grace the earth and also a complete chauvinist along with every other male in the story. Every character was just so unoriginal - you had the crazy great aunt, the snobby aunt, the self-righteous cousin, the worried mother, the excited friend and the handsome love interest Aside from all of that, the most annoying thing about this book was the complete and utter lack of a plot line.
I mean, nothing happened After pages in I thought, okay something is going to happen now I am not even going to discuss the romance I want to finish on a positive note so I will say I liked the idea of time-travel I will not be continuing this series for very obvious reasons View all 19 comments.
This book is incredibly mind-blowing. Time travel. With a good amount of suspense and mystery. View 1 comment. Gwyneth is a 16 years old school girl.
She was raised in a family full of secrets where her cousin Charlotte was the center of attention and care. After all, she was the gene carrier. She can travel back in time and thus she should be prepared. Gwyneth never envied her, though. She always helped Charlotte who was pretty much arrogant.
But she was going through a lot, right? She has to learn everything about the past, learn new languages and maintain high grades. Until all her efforts were in vai Gwyneth is a 16 years old school girl. Until all her efforts were in vain and Gwyneth was the actual time traveler of the family.
However, she knows nothing. She wasn't prepared. Everyone was being discreet -and still is- about the whole thing until their efforts were proven wrong. Then, she meets Gideon. The gene carrier of the de Villiers family. He's interesting and very handsome true. But also arrogant and treat our heroine like she's a useless ordinary girl.
And now they have a mission to accomplish together. But who should she trust when even her mother is not telling her everything? Minor spoilers ahead Let's see. First of all, time traveling and telling things about the future here and there should much more complicated. A single act can change the future at least for the family but not here. If they informed the count that the Gwyneth is the one who has the gene and not Charlotte and he recorded it in the Annals, that won't mean that they'll teach her instead of the other one?
I could go on all day how they could change the future and how to prevent Lucy and Paul from accomplishing their goals. Nope, too many illogical things. And what's up with Gwyneth? She's way too immature for a 16 years old girl! Why couldn't I feel anything for Gedeon?
I really hope I'll like him better in the next book. Even though he treated her like trash, she still adored admired him. Well, at least, it was enjoyable. I was going to give it 3 stars but then noticed that the flaws were too many. And they talk about logic for God's sake! Also her mother, she wants to protect her?
She has to be more convincing! How can her daughter trust her if she keeps from her all the secrets? Too many messed up things. No, the whole family is messed up, truth be told. If the whole family have red hair and she doesn't you always know that isn't their real child!!! I also thought that she's Lucy and Paul's daughter when they were that concerned. But I want to know the detailss!! View all 22 comments. I liked this book.
It was fast paced and a cute story. I would lie if I say I like the majority of the characters. I felt a little sad for Gwendolyn because almost everyone around her acted like spoiled brats however, I'd survive anything if I had a best friend like Leslie. Overall it was a short and quick read and I really enjoyed it. Time to watch the movie! I decided I was going to take some time to percolate my ideas for this book, but it's still up in the air what I exactly think.
Had some aspects I liked i. All right synopsis first: Gwen is a sixteen-year-old girl who lives in London the book was written in German originally so I'm not sure why that setting was chosen. Normal enough, but she comes from a family who can time-travel. Thankfully the gene bypassed her and was given t I decided I was going to take some time to percolate my ideas for this book, but it's still up in the air what I exactly think.
Thankfully the gene bypassed her and was given to her perfect cousin Charlotte. Gwen can enjoy a normal life without all the drama that comes with having the "special" gene. Well can you tell what's gonna happen? Gosh darn it you got it! I'm not usually this cynical really; I'm just kind of irritated about my feelings about the book.
Gwen's got the gene instead and there is lots of mystery shrouded around why this is. Now with Gwen thrown into this whole new world she meets Gideon who is a bit of distraction to Gwen, to her great dismay ; together they have an important mission to accomplish but it's hard to tell who are the bad and good guys, and if they can even trust each other.
The workings and the history behind the society is interesting. It reminds me of setups of other secret societies actually. What kind of bothered me was how Gwen has thoughts and says things like a twelve or thirteen year old which would have been fine if that was her age.
Then when she meets Gideon and gets in deep with the time-traveling stuff she shifts, which was nice to see but kind of abrupt for me. Of course it has those cool scenes of how events clash the present, past and future. Even though I have my reservations about it, I know others will just eat this up. I hate when I'm indecisive about a book, but you need some books like that so you can appreciate the amazing ones.
There is no major piece of the puzzle solved but it tantalizes you mercilessly and I will read the sequel. No matter my confusion of what I think I have to know what happens. View all 5 comments. Well that was a fun ride!
I read this in one sitting for the rainbowthon 2. I definitely feel like this was a great opening and solid setup for the rest of the trilogy; but while it was incredibly fun there was definitely no rising action or climax in the story.
It was also a bit predictable seriously, I saw that twist coming from the prologue but I love Gwen and her friendship with Lesley! I liked figur Well that was a fun ride! I liked figuring things out along with her.
The romance or lack thereof was also very refreshing Can you really blame me? I'm definitely interested in seeing where the story goes and how the time travel and stone system? Overall, I just really enjoyed this. It was a fun ride. I can seriously not express my love for this book. Maybe a five star rating is a little bit too much but literally my mind is blown at this moment!!
Unpopular opinion time! I came so incredibly close to DNF-ing this. A bunch of my friends gave lovely reviews to this book but I saw Rachel had given it a one star and I was immediately apprehensive.
We tend to have similar taste, especially with fantasy and wedding dresses or whatever the hell this was so I should have known better. I have never been so bored with a fantasy novel. I kept waiting for something to happen and it never did. Yes, we get that Gwyneth is is special and she has powers Unpopular opinion time! Yes, we get that Gwyneth is is special and she has powers that her jealous and sort of horrible cousin was supposed to inherit but that's it.
There's no danger here. There's nothing going on besides running around in the past in period appropriate clothes trying to catch the right timing. It's all a bit silly. Then there's this whole secret society thing where everybody in the world knows about time traveling but nobody knows what they actually do with these powers.
I'm sorry, but people would be trying to infiltrate that shit and kill people off. There would be legitimate danger at some point. But besides one assassination attempt, they just frolic around in their corsets and top hats and ride in carriages.
I mean, come on. You are asking the girl to get killed, kidnapped, or something. The love interest, Gideon, was rather stupid and shallow.
Book Rubinrot Liebe Geht Durch Alle Zeiten 2009
Super judgmental and flip flops very quickly about what girl he likes. Does he like Charlotte? Only if she's a special snowflake which she isn't. As soon as Gwyneth is special, Gideon likes her. There's insta-love and a male lead that ended up irritating the hell out of me. He acts like he is top shit but gets over powered and out maneuvered on several occasions. So here it is.
The Big Finish! The Rude Conclusion! Main female lead that is too stupid to live. Would have slapped her given the opportunity. Nothing actually happened throughout the book. Male lead is an idiot and shallow as hell too. It sucked me in from page 1, and I just ordered the next two books. I am so intrigued, and time travel is seriously a lifelong dream of mine.
Plus it is set in London. Seriously, what's there not to love? And a little Gideon don't hurt nobody ; Can't wait to continue on with this series. I really wanted to buy it before seeing your blog post but now I'm really looking forward for reading it: But I don't know, perhaps I will wait for the English version because I think the cover is way prettier than the French one.
Best wishes from France Lilie. Oh what a wonderful book rec! I don't think I've read anything that was originally from another country I'm looking forward to reading this now and the book trailer was great LOVE the first book Wednesday, March 23, You never heard of that before? That's not a real big surprise because this series is written by a German author. I really suggest you pick it up, because it is really good!
And no, that you do not understand a single word German is not a reason for not picking it up. The first novel in this series was translated into English and will be released May !

Together, Gwyneth and Gideon journey through time to discover who, in the 18th century and in contemporary London, they can trust. Summary by Goodreads. The ruby is considered to be the most powerful gem in the universe, and is associated with many astral signs.

I really liked this series and will buy this trilogy also. I could not put it down after I started it, and the second book is even better. I thought they were quite funny. I can't wait for the final book to come out, I'm sure I will enjoy it also.
Maybe something that set it apart from the usual YA crowd, that gave it a little more depth--or at least novelty. No such luck! I should have guessed that what would interest American publishers would be just more of the same--a generic London setting, a quirky teenaged hero who discovers she's the surprise heir to mysterious powers and a secret mission, a love interest who's stunningly handsome but also a dismissive jerk, and a ton of English-speaking pop culture references not that German media exposure, especially for youth, isn't dominated by English-speaker-created media--and not that German-speakers shouldn't own whatever they consume, English-original or not!
But there was only one pop culture reference in the whole book that was new to me; it felt like the setting and the references were picked largely to give the book appeal to an international audience--or to an audience reared on English-language-nation-set novels. There's not much to be had here that you couldn't get from any number of other YA novels. Most of the book is spent in talking or infodumps about the secret society and time-traveling powers.
Maybe this is all preparation for nonstop plot action in the next two books, but I'm 40 pages into Saphirblau, and so far, it's been all talking as well.
