This review is from: Mephisto (Classic, 20th-Century, Penguin) (Paperback)
this book is one of the best books that a ever read,Klaus mann create a very good atmosfere,and very well,cuz he was inspired by real people or friends and than create those personages,VERY very very well made book and for sure,very sadly..
Why Sadly? the book just relates NAZY GERMAN at all,doesn't realate the NEW GERMANY.I know the book was wrote at this date but klaus mann doesn't use nothing to relate some imaginere future of GERMANY..just the presente and the presente...
Why I GIVE 5 STARS for a Germany strange and deep complexo book?? VERY SIMPLE,The sarcasm that klaus mann use is so funny and even so real that make me laugh at times,the personages are very well made,The nazy party are well related(NOT AT ALL)..
Conclusion: AVOID THIS one if you don't like GERMANY or World histoy or hate actors feelings or book...But if you want a book that show really how the germany was in 1936 to 1940,with excelent characters,complex and Very deep history,so this book is for you,and i'm sure that you won't be disappointed
