by martha on May 30, 2008

I wept many times while reading this book. It has the kind of power that haunts the reader for many weeks, if not forever. There are parallels with "The Tin Drum" in the use of a dwarf as protagonist, and there is some common symbolism about the German civilians during World War II. However, the stye and content diverge from there. I could not put the book down, even though it was ripping me to shreds emotionally. I'm surprised I am the first reviewer, but the book has been around now a long time. If you are checking this out, read it.
