I enjoyed this book and read it very quickly. For me it was a bonus that I knew the places in Berlin which are mentioned, but if you don't it does not matter. The author describes the ambience sufficiently well. Of course the book is to some extent an apologia, but the author is at pains to explain that childhood memories are inevitably inaccurate and the book gives a fascinating insight into life for the ordinary,but educated, non-supportive German family under the Nazis.
