Alan Sidney Patrick Rickman (21 February 1946 – 14 January 2016)

I'm sorry for not being much online today...
RIP to Alan Rickman, one of the greatest actors of this time.
Many of my generation probably remember you as Professor Snape from Harry Potter, others in films like Die Hard as Hans Gruber, in Robin Hood as the Sheriff of Nottingham or as Harry in Love Actually...

You always found a way to touch all our hearts, even (or maybe because) your roles varied so much. And you showed that there is always light and dark inside a person.

You brought us happiness and humour and your play was always characterized by depth and brilliance. 
May you rest in peace.

We won't forget you.

A list of all his films so we will have a look again at his impressive life and remember why we should never forget this clever and mysterious actor (I found the list on wikipedia).

Stolz und Vorurteil von Jane Austen (German edition)

"The Pursual" is the first #book of the Nome Chronicles, written by F. F John. It is about #intrigues, #adventure, #illusions and betrayal. The novel plays in the 25th century. The Plot: Neith's world consists of 20 different nomes in which the #society is separated. This makes it difficult for her to pursue her real #love: Invier because her family is 2nd in rank and Invier’s family is on the last spot. She knows that her father will never allow a marriage between her and Invier because Invier's rank in society is so low and she hast o marry into a profitable alliance. That's why Neith talked her father into organizing a pursual which means that candidates will compete which each other in different #challenges in order to win the hand of her. The last pursual happened when Invier's late grandmother was born so it's a historical event. However Invier doesn't want to take part in the ceremony, but wants to envelope with Neith, even if they live in poverty. Despite that Neith is best friend with Bel, she can't explain her why she has to make sure that Invier has to participate even if he doesn't know it yet... And Bel also seems to have more and more secrets. Will Neith lies destroy the relationship? What are Bel's #secrets? And when more and more participants die and the resistors of the system are attacking normal citizens and nome buildings, who is responsible for this all? Great #dystopia novel with many #surprises and interesting characters. 5-Stars! #bookstagram #theselection #bachelorette #great #fantastic #recommended
