“I really enjoyed The Iron Curtain Kid. I've always...”

Good Points
A genuinely interesting and accessible read, packed with lots of detail and colour.

Bad Points
Sometimes perhaps dwells on the historical facts a bit too much.

General Comments
I really enjoyed The Iron Curtain Kid. I've always been fascinated by what life was like for ordinary people in the former Soviet countries, and Oliver Fritz's book gives a really good insight into how ordinary people lived their everyday lives, making the most of what they had and finding ways to make life interesting and fun. In addition, the book includes a lot of worthwhile and interesting historical information about how East Germany social, political and economic institutions in the country functioned. It's a genuinely fascinating snapshot of a particular period and place in history that today seems incredibly eccentric and bizarre.
