A Woman in Berlin: Eight Weeks in the Conquered Ci&hellip by Anonymous
This is the side of World War II that is not often told. We hear the stories, we know it happened, but nobody dares to go in and talk about it.

This lady does, and for a good reason: she suffered those eight weeks. She had to survive hunger, rape, abuse, mistrust... she had to come out alive at the other end. And she did what she had to do to survive. You can see how she changes throughout this pages, more in a single day than most of us do in 10 years.

Even better, I found the description of his downfall even more interesting. I learned a lot about Bismarck, so mission accomplished for Herr Eyck.

However, it never made me crave for the next page, the next chapter. It didn't trap me as a narrative.

Only complaint is that it doesn't have the same feeling as the bare screen (obviously!). It's not as easy to swipe with this thing in, you can feel it plasticky... not sure how to describe it. Anyways, I consider that a small price to pay for some extra protection for my screen (and if I ever get tired of it, I will just take it out).
