Oliver Fritz, The Iron Curtain Kid is a very good read...”

Written on: 17/05/2009 by weatherman (1 review written)

Good Points
The book takes the reader on a journey to East Germany by blending personal recollections with facts in a unique way. When I finished the book I really felt like I had been to East Germany.

General Comments
Oliver Fritz, The Iron Curtain Kid is a very good read and miles apart from similar books on the subject because instead of being written in German (as one would expect from a German author) it has been written in English, for an English market. All the things which a German reader would take for granted are properly explained (school cones, for example) but most of all I liked the sense of humor. It's present from the very first page to the last page and I can honestly say that never before have I read a book that was so funny and informative at the same time. A gem!
