Nazi officer Major Eric Schröder believed fervently in Hitler's vision of purity. Now the chair has passed to Frank, an abusive thug who has his own twisted understanding of patriotism. There are those who want to destroy the armchair, to end its curse. But can the armchair be stopped before it completes its work?

Creepy, gruesome, offputting, and cool!

Would you listen to Reinheit again? Why?

I have never listened to an audiobook twice, so no.


What other book might you compare Reinheit to and why?

It's like nothing I have every listened to in the details. The concept is original, with some derivatives of course, but the actual details are very original.


Which character – as performed by Chuck Roberts – was your favorite?

The nosy neighbour lady was well done.


If you could take any character from Reinheit out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Damn, good question. None of them. They are all challenged.


Any additional comments?

This book gets into some pretty gruesome details ( read Holocaust issues ), as well as moral and ethical dilemmas. It grows on you, and won't let you go. I had some challenges with the story line, but on its merit, it is a fine offering. Credit worthy, but know that it is bloody at times, and not a lot of social redemption opportunities.

I did receive my copy in exchange for this review from the author.

Nazi History + A Spooky Chair = Death for All!

Any additional comments?

I think it's particularly difficult to create a story that weaves back and forth through time and space. This book takes place partly in Nazi times and partly in modern day USA. I am a huge fan of Thomas S. Flowers' work, it usually deals with some sort of taboo issue in a delicious, horrifying way. I think Nazi's fall into that category pretty well. That said, I think some of the details got lost on me because this story wasn't nearly as clear and concise as some of his other works. I would recommend "Feast" by Flowers if you liked this tale - it's more gruesome but an even better story. I would only recommend this book to friends who love historical horror!

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
