    1. Mein Leben offers insight into both an interesting epoch and the life of a fascinating woman. Alma Mahler-Werfel's memoir is styled as (and presumably arises from) a journal of sorts and, though lengthy by way of pages, is succinct, highly entertaining and indeed quite the page-turner. Highly recommended!



    2. Habe das Buch nach etwa der Hälfte aufgegeben. Es fing interessant an, aber dann fehlte plötzlich die Erzählerin und waren alles nur noch bruchstückhafte Tagebucheinträge, die meist uninteressant und/oder verwirrend waren.


    3. Vzpomínky Almy Mahlerove-Gropiusove-Werfelove jsou poutave predevsim kvůli obsahu, nikoliv stylu psaní. Autorka se dopouští značných zkratek a často ve svém životě výrazně přeskakuje. Přesto je její líčení běžných životních peripetií, při nichž se setkala s radou známých osobnosti, fascinujici. Skoda, ze autorka nebyla talentovanejsi v práci s jazykem.
