What made the experience of listening to Then We Take Berlin the most enjoyable?
Everything! His plots are complex but clear, always deeply absorbing and funny too. The historical detail is beautifully presented and never intrusive, set in the often neglected period immediately post war in Britain and Europe.
Who was your favorite character and why?
The central character Wilderness is a delight but also the old forger, who's name I have forgotten
Which character – as performed by Lewis Hancock – was your favourite?
The old forger
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The suicide of Wilderness's father
Any additional comments?
I've started listening again to the second in this series, (I bought them the wrong way around) and I can't wait for Mr Lawton to write another. I'd thoroughly recommend the Troy novels too.
Although the story of chancer Joe is deftly written and narrated, the Cold War really only appears in the final hour of this talking book. However it is a very detailed and finally observed history of the end of World War II and its aftermath. I kept expecting something to happen, but it never really did.
