What disappointed you about Somewhere in Germany?
I wanted to glimpse life in post-war Germany. The book was successful in such a glimpse. Unfortunately, it felt like she took a diary and tried to weave it with a related historic novel. We were introduced to characters over and over who were then left undeveloped. I wanted to know more about Martin, I wanted to know why Schlahinski was arrested, what came of the arrest, how he ended up free. I wanted to better know her thoughts on sleeping with her boss and how that affected her faith and her soul. Did it go on forever? How did she break it off? Only a handful of numerous unanswered questions.
What could Stefanie Zweig have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
She should have abandoned the diary and written a historic novel.
Did Max Roll do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
Max did a reasonable performance - I would listen to him again.
Any additional comments?
Look elsewhere for you post war snapshot of life.
