An extraordinary description of how it was, and how women suffered, under the collapse of Berlin. Dispassionate and yet very moving. A valuable source of first hand observation and suffering. Well worth reading.

I loved this book which is full of atmosphere and well written. I have only given it 4 stars as I was slightly disappointed by the ending which did not seem right to me.

A very interesting book about Mr Blake's later work, richly illustrated. Mr Blake's work is always such fun to look at.

I loved this book - full of humour and interesting characters, not least the elephant - and have recommended it to many friends as a worthwhile book to read.

Highly recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing, 11 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Of Bees and Mist (Paperback)
I bought this book because it had such good reviews on Amazon. However, I was sorely disappointed. As a previous reviewer has already pointed out, the English was appalling, with dreadful metaphors and phrases.

In my opinion, The Night Circuswas far superior, with greater atmosphere and better use of language.
