Although some of the activities are quite American and not relevant like the currency questions, it is still a great book to do during the holidays after reception.

My two year old son loves this book as much as his older brother. The last page always makes them giggle.

1.0 out of 5 stars end of the line, 15 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having already read the previous 4 books in the already weakening series I was hoping that a post war change of direction would be used to good effect in the vein of Bernie Gunther. Instead the bulk of the book was devoted to catching up on what had happened to side characters from the previous books in the form of "I wonder what happened to so and so" before random events and coincidence presented the solution to a problem that would never have crossed the reader's mind.

There was a weak story-line about the black market in post war Berlin which was more of a matter of course rather than an intriguing plot, needless to say the main protagonists became involved through a series of unlikely random events and coincidences.

Other than that there was very little cohesive plot, few characters of interest, old characters became increasingly annoying in their self-righteous views and then the book finishes leaving myself wondering "what was the point of that?".
Overall at best it is a tying up of loose ends (more so for the author than the readers perhaps?)
One star is all it deserves,avoid unless absolutely necessary.
Definitely the end of the line for the "Station" series.
Do not read if you have not read the prior books in the series as it will make little sense.

p.s. this is the first time I have been motivated to review a book.
