This review is from: Two Brothers (Kindle Edition)
I love this book. As an avid fan of Ben Elton previous novels, I really looked forward to this book. In true Elton style this is outstanding. Without giving too much away, the characters are lovable and the storyline, while being set in Germany surrounded by the atrocities of war is a beautifully written love between twins and one girl.
I was sad to reach the end of the book, but it had to and did so well. It was also sad to read Ben Elton's comments at the end that said many of the characters in the book were based on members of his own family.
5 stars well deserved, perfectly written. Humour amid atrocity. Blackadder Goes Forth proved that Elton can write comedy elements inside a serious subject while maintaining the dignity and respect it deserves, this book is further proof to that.
