    Wilde Jahre in West Berlin hat mich in eine andere Zeitzur ckversetzt Die Mauer stand noch, es gab kein Internet und keineHandys Damals benutzte man noch die gute alte Telefonzelle, wenn manmal mit der Mutti sprechen wollte Und damals gab es noch SMOG.Eigentlich war das keine schlechte Stimmung SMOG Irgendwiefuturistisch Fast wie ein Science Fiction Film Die Szene wo Hucky im tiefsten Smog seine Mutter anruft, gef llt mir deshalb auchausnehmend gut Es ist ein Feeling fast wie auf dem Mars und im [...]

    Die Story spielt vor ungef hr 30 Jahren Wie es so war mit der Mauer,kann man sich heute kaum mehr vorstellen Das kommt besonders in derSzene mit der Katze raus Es w re nat rlich absolut f rchterlichgewesen, wenn die Katze eine Mine ausgel st h tte Allerdings war eswohl so, dass die meisten Tiere zu leicht sind Die Minen konnten wohlnur von Menschen ausgel st werden Nat rlich habe ich mir dannvorgestellt, wie es w re, wenn ein Mensch auf die Mine tritt Einabsolut grauenvoller Gedanke Besonders sp [...]


    I got this for free in a giveaway.Not knowing anything about what living in a squatted house is like I found this book very interesting and informative A group of people make an abandoned building their home They move in and fix it up to their liking Even though there is no running water at first they are pretty happy there and tend to tolerate each other They live with the fear of being evicted and the building doors and windows being bricked over and the building being destroyed I found the ch [...]


    I received the book for free through Giveaways.Even today we tend to romanticize Berlin as a place of freedom for arts and famous for a vast alternative scene And everything started with punks movement in Berlin, the same time like in London and New York.This short book tells a few stories of one squatting gang about their friendship, caring, struggling together, ups and downs Makes you feel nostalgic for such pure and simple times


    A little slice of life in a special place at that time Matthias captured the feeling of Berlin in the 80 s or late 70 s when I was there A crazy intense place that in a way was magical in it s intensity And to those who experienced Berlin in those years a great memory And to those who did not get that chance here it is


    Ich habe selber zwar keine wilden Jahre in Berlin bzw Deutschland verbracht, aber das Buch erinnert mich an etliche fr here Freunde und Bekannte aus meiner Studentenzeit Habe beim Lesen oft laut gelacht und in Erinnerungen geschwelgt danke daf r

    Ok, easy read with some good humor Short and not too many big words along with some cartoons scattered throughout the book.

    Kindle UnlimitedThis one was just the story, not the bilingual version.Got this on a freebie day, and while don t read German great, with the dual text helping out here and there got about 2 3 of it, nice way to do a type of language learning to me it was of a 4 1 2 story wise but since there aren t half stars and did like the dual language part, 5 is right enough rating.I actually ended up with kindle version of both Learn German with modern Literature Wild Years in West Berlin Bilingual Editi [...]


    No hay mucho que comentar, el libro es bastante corto y dividido en cap tulos donde nunca hay profundidad ni desarrollo de personajes Honestamente no s c mo lo termin.

    This is the second book I have read of the author Matthias Drawe I started with Free Lunch in New York and then moved on to Wild Years in West Berlin and I finished it very quickly It was well paced, engaging and a very German book and when I say German I mean the narrative digs deep into the rhythms of the German society in the 80s and it was a time of great turbulence for the people and Matthias Drawe effectively captures a slice of life in that era.The book is set at a time when the Berlin Wa [...]

    Wild Years in West Berlin is a thrilling narrative of the down and dirty life of a youth living in the world of punks and avant garde artists in West Berlin in the 80 s Our protagonist, Hucky, is a guitarist in a punk band who is squatting with quite the rag tag group of individuals in an abandoned building in the heart of this divided center for strangeness The atmosphere of destitution and revolution is brought to life in vivid scenes of rioting, underground concerts, devious celebration, and [...]


    Ich bekam dieses Buch ber die Lotterie geschenkt Daf r bedanke ich mich sehr.Das Buch gefiel mir au erordentlich gut Mit viel Humor beschreibt Drawe das WG Leben in einem besetzten Haus in West Berlin In vielerlei Hinsicht sind Hausbesetzer auch nur ganz normale Menschen und das gemeinsame Leben hat auch dort manchmal etwas von einer Seifenoper.Was mich beim Lesen aber arg gest rt hat, waren die vielen Rechtschreibfehler Mal verwendet der Autor neue Rechtschreibung, mal alte Rechtschreibung und [...]

    The story moves along well, but the hygiene of these folks is kind of interesting I really don t want to know how the bathroom looked like once the author describes it a bit One of the girls had painted the toilet bowl blue, but the paint had already chipped off, so it s kind of a splattered white and blue Probably they wanted to show somehow, that they are different The chapter The Disease , where they are afraid that the health department might shut down the house, really made me smile After t [...]

    This book took a graphically real, personal look at a group of squatters lives in Europe It was a fairly easy read but with challenging subject matter to keep me engaged It transports you to a different time and country yet is still relative and relatable this could have been set in present day America and the majority of the issues they are pushing for are still applicable The drawings throughout were very descriptive and set the realism tone Everything wasn t perfect, but they didn t focus on [...]

    Wild Years in West Berlin is a powerful narrative based on author Matthias Drawe s experiences in a divided post WWII Germany, documenting the lives of a punk rock band of squatters as they try to make the best with what little they have Telling a profoundly rich story masterfully through episodic short bursts of thought and simple wording, Drawe manages to breathe lives as well as meaning to a time and place largely forgotten by the rest of the post war world, memorializing the shared experienc [...]

    I started this thing one afternoon and finished it the next day The chapters are almost like movie scenes from a screenplay Sometimes felt I could even see the cut Really liked the pictures Almost like a story board There could be , though, like 2 or 3 for each chapter The story is full of weird details and it s obvious that the guy who wrote it must have lived through it You just can t come up with a scene where they watch the Invasion of the Killer Bubbles and one of the guys wears 3 D glasses [...]
