I found your review to be very helpful and concise. Thanks. :)
Well I guess I'll save my money then. :-)
That's what I call a real time saver. Thank you. :-)
It's great to have an opinion, the stronger the better. Can you please tell us why you think the German edition of Vanity Fair is cheesy? Is that a stand-alone judgement or one made in comparison to its American counterpart? I might pick up a copy myself just to have a look.
Jul, Christina and Veronique ... Thanks for stopping by - but do take a look for yourselves - i'd like to know if you concur.Ian ... Perhaps a bit of both - but primarily it was a gut reaction to the experience of the issue; the layouts, the jumble of it all, the trashy taste that lingered after I put it down.
I found most media in Germany to be an acquired taste, so maybe that gut feeling was just a bout of indigestion?
It is cheesy. But then I have to admit that German media in all forms is cheesy. Strange but true don't you think?The true cheese crown belongs to another publication. My brother-in-law is going to Hamburg soon to take a position at BILD. I make a point now not to talk about the quality of that rag now that it's feeding family.
I wonder how that happened...Im only subscribed to three publications, The Economist, National Geographic and Vanity Fair (US), I find their articles thrilling and incisive, and I love Graydon Carter's take on current affairs. Of course, lots of bling and that horrid crime-reporter, what is his name?, but I guess this is something Im ready to put up with in exchange for great journalism and more often than not, fantastic photography.
