Unique characters' perspectives
on January 7, 2017
A friend recommended this book because she 'loved' it. I respect her literary judgement highly. By the time I got to the end, I was very interested in the outcome and the characters' paths. In fact, I liked the ending very much! But I had a tough time in the beginning as the writing seemed very disjointed, and more than once I contemplated quitting. But I persevered and was glad I did in the end. Reflecting back, the characters trials and tribulations provided a unique perspective of life in Germany during the Nazi regime of those who did not agree with Hitler's philosophy and terror tactics.
