5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful and thought provoking story, 11 Feb 2004
This review is from: The Good German (Paperback)
This book has a murder investigation as its theme, but like all good crime books, that is a device to explore bigger themes. They don't get any bigger than in this story - what is guilt; why does a civilised society get sucked into genocide; does the justice of the victors obscure the real crimes because it is heavily influenced by self interest? These are just a few of the issues raised by Kanon. He addresses them using believable and varied characters. Many of the "baddies" are people you would enjoy meeting while many of the "goodies" have major flaws or past history which is very suspect.
I enjoyed this book more than most I have read in recent years. This is my first review on line - I've written it because I got such pleasure from this book!
