To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I very much enjoying this book.It is well written.The main characters are sympathetic and the plot is well constructed.I would recommend this book to anyone interested in both the Jewish and German perspective on this era .Also It is well balanced,showing that all the people were victims of Nazism .
All the people who recommended this book to me raved about it. Told me it was one of the best books they had ever read. However, I didn't finish it. That is because I just have a lot of trouble reading books set before or during the second world war. Over the last 20 odd years I have read, and enjoyed, a lot of the genre but I think I just overdosed. I could not enjoy this book, it is well written and I liked the main characters. So if you enjoy the genre you will certainly enjoy the book, which is why I have given it four stars.
I enjoyed this book was interesting to see from the German perspective sad after what so many people went through to then live in eastern block countries I visited east Germany going through check point charlie in the eighties it was like going back in time unbelievable
