I've read this book and listened to it. It reads really well, perhaps a little better than the audio book if you are familiar with German.
Stasiland like many other history texts tells an excellent account of people's lives in the past. However Stasiland reads a little less like a historical text and more like a personal account, because it is. Anna Funder injects her own personal experience in Germany and her interactions, feelings, and opinions in a way that is very informal and accessible.
No, she does this terrible male voice, furthermore the German voice is a little tiresome.
Stasiland is full of sad and depressing stories; though depending on your sense of humor you may find much that is funny.
