5.0 out of 5 stars An Astonishing Debut, 20 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Undertaking (Kindle Edition)
I normally avoid novels about the war - It was part of my childhood memories, that was enough. But this was recommended by a friend, someone whose judgement I trust. I cannot sing it's praises highly enough. It is the war indeed, but the war from the other point of view. A story which starts by the strange marriage of two people who have never met. Peter, a German soldier serving on the Russian front and Katherina a young woman living in Berlin with her parents. Staunch supporters of Hitler and his policies.Nothing is spared - even the casual loathing and fear of Jews. Subjects normally shrouded in secrecy here are facts of everyday life. As you grow increasingly interested in these lives, care about them, not surprisingly the reader feels guilty for enjoying them so easily. Audrey Magee turns our emotions on their heads with a love story against the background of Nazi Germany and the Holocaust; but thIs time from the point of view of what we believe to be the enemy. She has a wonderful talent and I await her next book with eagerness.
