I liked this book very much. I listened to it, at first with a bit of distance, then it drew me into the story. By the end I was twisted and conflicted just as the author wanted me to be.
I read books for pleasure or inspiration or knowledge of history or people. This was none of those. The writing, per se, was fine, even better than that probably, but there was a dull grey sky hanging over it all.
I really enjoyed this book. It was well written and informative of the German people at the time of the Holocaust. It made me sad that the man did not find happiness because he grew older.
I love books and love talking about books. Hope my reviews are helpful!
Usually I try to come up with a more audacious or funny review title, but this story earned a succinct and active label. The story will take you places you will not expect, and always feels alive, which I understand as not only difficult but confusing and passionate. Tragic but yet alive. I truly hope it affects you as well.
