This review is from: Mein Kampf (Paperback)
Mein Kampf is a book I originally read when I was studying Psychology. Some reviews have commented on the quality of the translation. Having taken the time to read the text in it's original German language, it was as confusing as reading it in English.
The reason for the bad text is in my opinion down to Hitler himself. He was no great writer and his mind was to be polite slightly confused.
The text quickly spirals in to political racist rants and there are examples of sentences running into patagraphs. Stick with it if you can, It's taken me 3 attempts to get through the book.
It's quite an insight in to a warped man, It certainly is not a light read! But it helps the reader discover just how Hitler formed his opinons.
People are concerned about what is contained within the book, but actually it is not as Racist and vile as people believe, of course this book contains plenty of that. But it somehow when read in complete context doesn't overpower you. Of course as normal people we can't forget the atrocities that happened in WWII under Hitlers leadership, and reading Mein Kampf remembering the stories of the Jews and those persecuted in the War it gives you a unique oportunity to read deeper into the mind of a maniac.
Yes this book is hard going and at some points near impossible to read but this is after all from the pen of Adolf Hitler what else can you expect!?!
