Soon they meet another vacationing German couple, Charly and Hanna, who introduce them to a band of locals—the Wolf, the Lamb, and El Quemado—and to the darker side of life in a resort town.Late one night, Charly disappears without a trace, and Udo’s well-ordered life is thrown into upheaval; while Ingeborg and Hanna return to their lives in Germany, he refuses to leave the hotel.

    meg says: "Great And Greatly Over My Head"

    Story
    What did you love best about The Third Reich?

    The way it pulls you right in, and keeps you in a place you may never have been.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Atmosphere, characters, plots and how it sticks with you for days after you have finished it. And maybe parts of it, for the rest of your life.


    What about Simon Vance’s performance did you like?

    He never intrudes himself into the narrative.


    If you could take any character from The Third Reich out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    The Burned Man. And why? We can't talk until you've read the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Bolano is unpretentious, a fine story teller. If you like Graham Greene, Colm Toibin or Marques, you most likely wont want to miss Bolano.
