A more objective view of Bonhoeffer's life. Still trying to find evidence of his being a 'righteous gentile'. Listens like someone's doctorial thesis. Dry, overly verbose, way more detail than anyone could ask for.
Try the abridged version.
no, but he did a good job.
Metaxas needs to decide if this is a work of practical theology or a work of historical biography. Trying to be both isn't working.
Skip the humor, state your case then defend your position. Oh yeah, have the main character quit whining.
Revealing. Sheds light on a heroic act performed by ordinary people. Waaaaaaaaaaaay to long.
Only to those unfamiliar with the Media, Pa break-in; then only in Cliffs Notes.
Not really. Philip Kerr does a much better job with the gritty world of the Berlin Police. The title subject is often lost in the twists and turns of the plot.
Include the title subject more in the story. If not, change the title.
No, not really. Each chapter opening creates expectation which is never really fulfilled. The examples discussed could all be categorized as something other than "Folly".
Average, sometimes breathless.
Create an ending worthy of the story.
Good story and character development , ending needs to be less abrupt.
