I love historical fiction but often I feel like I read a different spin on the same time and place over and over and…
Mind you, I’m not complaining, I still love it.
But a book written about post WWII soviet controlled Germany, from a German view point ? That was something entirely new.
Would I recommend it? This is a young adult novel and, as most young adult novels do, it contains a main character of an age that is full of angst, invincibility and self importance. He is crafted so well that I could imagine sitting in a room and talking to him – except I wouldn’t want to. However, he is so perfect in his irritating-ness that I’m still planning on shoving this book at all my friends and family that I know enjoy a young adult novel because it was really that good.
I’m so glad you liked it. I had a feeling you’d enjoy this one.
Interesting… I don’t remember the last Y.A.F. that I read that the “hero” wasn’t a young girl caught in a love triangle! I may have to keep this on my wish list!
I will be checking this out from the library!
