Blown away. If I could give it 6 stars I would.
WOW. Hans Fallada (Rudolf Ditzen) did a remarkable job showing us how WW2 Germany effected everyone. While reading, thanks to his talent to be extremely descriptive, I felt the fear of the people reading those postcards, the hatred Otto felt towards Hitler - this book makes you feel everything.
I've read some amazing books about Nazi Germany such as the Book Thief, but nothing can compare to this novel. All I can say is this is a novel that will stick with me and everyone should read it.
