Christopher Lane's capture of American, British and German accents makes this a winner. I highly recommend if you like WW 2 stories.

Highly recommend purchasing this book if you are hesitant. Berlin Calling had been on my wishlist for a couple of months and I kept putting it off in search of a great WWII book with more reviews. Wasted time. This is a great book! A fantastic book! As a matter of fact, this novel is now on my Top Five list of WWII historical fiction novels along with Beneath A Scarlet Sky, The Kommandant’s Girl, Lilac Girls, and The Nightingale.
This novel is a bit refreshing, in the sense that it is not based on a Jew in the ghetto or concentration camp, nor does it convey the severe oppression and harrowing details relative to the manner in which the Nazis abused the Jews. Instead, Durham’s protagonist is an Irish-American character naively choosing to live in Berlin and pursue a career after her studies at the university. Similar to many other novels, the war manages to swallow up all youth and somehow place them in the position to fight for their country. The novel is not typical, expertly written, intriguing, imaginative, and unpredictable.
Excellent narration! Some scenes and characters are truly brought to life. What an outstanding job.
Cannot recommend this novel enough!
