the Author clearly researched this book to the utmost degree. The attention to detail and the story as it grew of the main characters - left me with a profound sadness for both sides of the terrible final weeks of WWII.
By weaving the real history with lives of everyday Berliners of all walks of life made it a thoroughly compelling read.
I must admit that the performance of Simon Vance really added something special to the experience of listening.
Had I been able to listen to the entire book in one sitting, I definitely would have.
