this story had promise - interesting time period and subject; good research of the slang. But in the end none of the main characters were likeable and none of them are redeemed. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Catherine Elder
I found it well worth reading and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a story of young jazz musicians who find themselves in Berlin in the late '30s. The characters are well portrayed. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Janet C. W. B.
Everything about this story is told with care and precision. It's an aspect of the war I'd never considered and found heartbreaking in an unexpected way. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Brad Micklea
I thought it was boring and only read a few pages. Not sure why it did not grab my attention although I
think some readers would get right into it.
Enjoyable read from times long passed. Good reading for any jazz lover. It also portrayed something of the problems in Gerrnany at the beginning of the second world war.Published 12 months ago by May Heinrich
