Assuming historicall correctness, I would recomend this to a friend. One who isn't too squeamish about the filth, and vermine of the time period. The Hangmans integrity, determination, and apparent indestructability, are nothing less than super human, yet believable. I enjoy the foibles and funniness of his daughter and her lover/boyfriend. You wouldn't think there could be anything about those years that could be funny, but the added humor help make the rest readable.
The Hangman of course.
His daughter, who generally acts first then thinks SECOUND, is truly his daughter.
I listened to it a bit at a time, or I could go right through.
I have one more to go, then I hope Mr. Potzsch will write more.
I don't think I can recomend this to anyone. This book has a multitude of characters, with strange names from a multitude of species, with strange names, from a multitude of worlds, some invisible. It is very difficult to follow the many characters, species, and worlds, as each has it's own story line, some of which finally fit together eventually, some who don't. It ends with death, and an explanation of "I lied" which may be intended as a cliff hanger.....to find out what happens next, assumably you must read the next book. I, personally can't imagine wanting to go back for more. There isn't enough character development to get to know any one character to care what happens to them. Bye, bye
I doubt it.
I generally like Mr. Guidall's reading. What he is reading isn't his fault.
Most of them.
Maybe the author could dismantle the entire book, and seperate the story lines for each individual, and follow that person/thing to the end seperated from the others?
