      OK, there is no getting around it. This book is terrible. It doesn't help that the narrator seems bored to death. The prose is mechanical. The plot OK, so the author has been to Munich. I am convinced because he was able to rattle off street names that must be there. After all, there was no other reason for rattling them off since they didn't factor into the story at all.Yet, there is something about the old "Saturday matinee bad film noir from the thirties" feel about it, but alas, it fails eve [...]

      This book fails utterly as prose -- the writing isn't great, the pacing is terrible, there's a lot more of the author's weird shit in here than I need or want (eg: all the women are constantly in raptures about the greatness of American men vs all other men), and it suffers from that ailment common to mysteries where the author is so concerned with the reader never seeing it coming that nothing in the denouement makes any sense. But I do think it succeeds as something like a primary source -- th [...]

      The expendable spy by Jack D HunterI won this book through Member Giveaways on LibraryThing. An American intelligence officer who happens to speak flawless German is parachuted behind German lines in 1945 as a courier on a secret mission. He is in fact expendable yet he needs to live long enough to tell his story. While I wasn't really able to relate to the story it was a good read. Perhaps much of it was beyond mysterious for my taste buds. ( ) flagMar 12, 2015 | edit |

      1945 in Germany. This is an amazing read due to the incredible level of day-to-day detail built into each scene. The rich prose, emotion, and stark reality of war from a largely civilian perspective takes you back to another time where the significance is lost on most people today. Only someone who lived, understood, and got it down on paper before it dissipated could have done such a masterful job. Any WWII historian or student of the era will find the book fascinating.
