“Having lived in East Berlin for a couple of years...”

Written on: 21/05/2009 by koalaaa (1 review written)

Having lived in East Berlin for a couple of years myself I'm quite familiar with life behind the Iron Curtain in general, and life behind the Berlin Wall in particular. And I can truly say that Oliver Fritz, The Iron Curtain Kid has succeeded where so many books have failed before. It's very informative without being dry. It's highly entertaining without being silly. It takes the reader by the hand and really transports him or her to an East Germany twenty or thirty years ago. The story is written in such a clever style that after a while I really felt I was back in the German Democratic Republic. Only that now I had someone on my side explaining to me all the things I did not understand or was ignorant of at the time. It's a marvellous book written by a brilliant author. He is definitely one to watch!
