Der fremde Sohn – Sam Hayes (Buchrezension)

“Der fremde Sohn” ist das erste Buch, welches ich von der Autorin Sam Hayes gelesen habe.

Max ist tot. Er wurde auf dem Schulhof erstochen und für seine Mutter, Carrie Kent, bricht eine Welt zusammen. Die äußerst erfolgreiche Fernsehmoderatorin realisiert sehr bald, dass sie ihren geliebten Sohn überhaupt nicht gekannt hat und macht sich nun auf die Suche nach dem Mörder. Dabei dringt sie immer tiefer in das Leben ihres Sohnes ein und stößt auf Dinge, die sie niemals vermutet hätte. Dinge, die sie manchmal auch lieber nicht gewusst hätte, denn die Wahrheit ist so oft sehr schmerzlich.

Nach einer Leseprobe habe ich einen spannenden Thriller erwartet, musste jedoch bald feststellen, dass dies wirklich keiner ist. Es handelt sich hier eher um ein sozialkritisches Drama, welches in drei Zeitebenen erzählt wird. Die erste Ebene beginnt mit der Ermordung von Max und den darauf folgenden Tagen, die zweite Ebene spielt etwa ein halbes Jahr früher und die dritte Ebene liegt weiter in der Vergangenheit zurück.
Der Schreibstil ist toll und kann einen fesseln, was ich jedoch von den Charakteren und der Geschichte an sich weniger behaupten kann. Es gibt vier Protagonisten und ein paar weitere Nebenfiguren. Carrie Kent, die Mutter von Max, Max, sein Vater Brody und Max Freundin Dayna Ray. Die Story schwimmt dann vor sich hin und badet sich in Verzweiflung, Außenseitertum und dem Unverständnis gegenüber der bösen, großen Welt. Des öfteren habe ich mich beim Lesen gefragt, ob man in einer solchen Situation wirklich so handeln würde bzw. ob nicht einige Ereignisse einfach komplett übertrieben dargestellt wurden. Zudem fand ich nicht einen Charakter wirklich sympathisch. Carrie Kent, die einfach durch und durch ein Snob ist und urplötzlich nach dem Tod ihres Sohnes wie gewandelt erscheint und doch nur denkt: “Wenn man mich jetzt so sehen könnte!”. Brody, die erblindete Mathemathikprofessor mit ungeheurem Charme und einer totalen Abneigung gegen das Putzen. Dayna Ray und Max waren da noch am erträglichsten mit ihrem pubertären Weltschmerz, der natürlich durch extremes Mobbing angeheizt wird.
Relativ schnell habe ich erahnt, wie die Geschichte enden würde, da das ganze Schema doch auch sehr an eine andere, sehr bekannte Story erinnert (die ich hier nun nicht nennen werde, da ich ansonsten das Ende dieses Buches verrate). Ein überraschender Schluss hat mich also auch nicht begeistern können.

Alles in allem ein ganz gutes Buch, da der Schreibstil wirklich sehr gut lesbar ist. Jedoch wurde meines Erachtens an der Geschichte und einer ausgereifen Figurentwicklung gespart, von daher vergebe ich nur drei von fünf Sternen. Ich persönlich weiß nicht, ob ich noch ein weiteres Buch dieser Autorin lesen werde.

    First off I want to say great blog! I had a quick
    question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to
    know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.
    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thank you!

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a
    blog that’s both educative and amusing, and without a doubt,
    you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that
    too few people are speaking intelligently about. I am very
    happy I found this in my hunt for something relating to this.

    Fantastic blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?

    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress
    or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused ..
    Any ideas? Many thanks!

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell
    to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched
    her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely
    off topic but I had to tell someone!

    Definitely believe that that you stated. Your favourite justification appeared to be on the net
    the easiest factor to be mindful of. I say to you, I definitely get irked whilst people think about concerns that they plainly do not understand about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and outlined out the whole
    thing without having side effect , other folks could take a signal.

    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of
    plagorism or copyright infringement? My blog has a lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it looks like
    a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my
    agreement. Do you know any solutions to help reduce content from being ripped off?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.

    Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended

    Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?
