Hello to the real Cabaret,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Berlin Novels (Paperback)
Having been brainwashed by Nazi propaganda films for what seems like forever this book was a totally refreshing look at the real life of everyday Germans prior to the descent into the madness of the Hitler era. Isherwood's writing is precise and never superfluous. It feels as though the characters are as alive today as they were all those years ago. I can never watch 'Cabaret' again without thinking of Isherwood's Sally Bowles. For once Hollywood almost got it right. This is one book I would definitely delve into again.
