Best Professor Dr. Moritz-Maria Books

Portuguese Irregular Verbs: One of the best books in the Professor Dr. Moritz book series is Portuguese Irregular Verbs, which is among one of the books in the series. Professor Dr. Moritz is a three book series which features the protagonist Professor Dr. Moritz, who is the author of philosophical masterwork. All the books in this series were published in the year 2003; thus there is no starting point to the Professor Dr. Moritz-Maria book series. However, it is highly advisable that the readers should begin with this installment. The eight stories which have been included in this installment offer a great background to the series’ main protagonist.

On one of his journey’s he meets with one man who is believed to be holy, a murderer, provokes a sword fight and also gets his tooth pulls out.

The Finer Points of Sausage: Nonetheless, some of the books in the book are much better than others. In a majority of these stories, the protagonist Maria von Igelfield attempts to improve the sales of the monograph that he had designed so that it can be saved from being sold. Another installment that performed extremely well in the Professor Dr. Moritz book series is the Finer Points of Sausage Dogs. It is not only a great read but also it is also relatively light-hearted novel which is exceedingly entertaining as the first book. This installment follows the main protagonist as he travels across America. Throughout the journey’s the medical professor is mistaken for a veterinary doctor, thus at one point supervises the amputation of one sausage dog. The professor is shocked upon discovering that the sausage dog belonged to one of his colleagues.

Later on, the Professor travels to Italy where he is given the task of protecting St. Nicholas’s relic bones, which he fails to protect and are accidentally eaten by some dogs. He also mistakenly penalizes the pope for being extremely loud in the library. At one point, the protagonist is presumed dead after he runs away from a cruise-ship after escaping away from numerous elderly ladies who had just discovered that the professor was a bachelor.
