3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Felix Valencia on 7 April 2012
Format: Paperback
This is a truly fascinating story, an insight into the lives of those who endured the excesses of the Nazi state at the height of its power. Fallada wrote this book shortly after the war in less than a month, a novel inspired by reading through Gestapo files. It was his last, but one he was very proud to have written.

At heart, the book deals with one couple's private campaign of resistance to the Nazi regime. As Fallada wrote in an article about the novel, "Über den doch vorhandenen Widerstand der Deutschen gegen den Hitlerterror", his writings were dedicated to their sacrifice that it not be in vain. The core of the book centres on the Quangels, a couple who lose their son during Hitler's invasion of France, and who strive to offer a token of resistance, by way of writing postcards and letters denouncing the Nazi acts. These political flyers almost unswervingly end in the arms of the Gestapo, who catalogue this defiance and use their ruthless methods in pursuit of the perpetrators, destroying lives as they do so. This, in my opinion, is one of the book's greatest strengths, its depth of living characters, almost reminiscent to me of a Dickensian world, each role played by a figure of flesh and blood, and not merely props for the main actors to play up against. Thus the novel details episodes in the lives of thieves and prostitutes, Jews and Gestapo inspectors, youth and the permanently unemployed.

Aside from the insight into what life was like under the Nazis, the book also offers this strong message of hope. The very premise of the powerless individual trying to make a difference against the faceless society is a strong one.

The unabridged version is better than the English translation. It is also about one hundred pages longer
and clearly truer to the author's intentions.

Format: Paperback
As a non-native German speaker, I found the German version difficult to understand in places, as it uses Berlin dialect at times, but its well worth persevering with, or alternatively reading the English translation. Its a great insight into the lives of ordinary German people during the war, and challenges the reader to imagine what they would have done in that situation, by building up the suspense and following a number of threads of story at the same time. This should be on the school syllabus along with the film the Wave.
