Authentic and interesting but overlong and slow,
This review is from: The Good German (Paperback)
This could have been a fine book but should really have been edited by around 100 pages or so. The plot is pretty thin to be dragged out to such a lenght as this. I have an interest in Germany and in 1930-1950 history which I think sustained me to the end, but I could easily have given up two thirds through. There are a couple of good characters and the central theme of morality vs expediency in the face of a new-world reality i.e looming east vs west cold war is reasonably handled.
Harder work than it should have been.
