That looks excellent. I really enjoyed Nothing to Envy, so I think I might read this next. And it's only £4.19 on Kindle!

Oops. Oh god it's GREAT. I was just talking about it. I was tidying up an old book case and found this too www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/1906413479/ref=mp_s_a_1_5?qid=1401287573&sr=8-5&pi=AC_SX110_SY165 which I mentioned on the German book thread

In fact all millers books are good. Try that one too

I'm half way through and finding it hard-going. Is it just me? I will persevere but am less gripped than I'd like. Maybe it's the writing style, which I'm finding a little flat.

Maybe the translation? Sorry. (It's me n/c)

Well, I thought it got better towards the end. It's funny, though, although I thought it was an interesting story (particularly the maternal grandfather), there was something about the way it was told that didn't engage me. One curious thing though is that it left me feeling that East Germany wasn't as bad as I'd always imagined - which probably wasn't the intention!
