What disappointed you about The Arms Maker of Berlin?
I found this slooooow and ponderous.
Did Jeff Harding do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
I adore and will ready almost anything narrated by Jeff Harding, he is what makes ANY BOOK a delight - but , sorry Jeff, even I couldn't wade through this one.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
None - admittedly I only gave it half an hour
Any additional comments?
This was my first Dan Fesperman book but I sincerely hope not my last. I picked it up with a little hesitation because the nazi era has been done and done again ad nauseum, but this guy 'sucks' you in within the first two minutes and does not let you go till the end of the story. A tale of several different characters each with a different axe to grind, it jumps very clearly from the past to the present as the author fills out the individual stories and links them to the main thread. Be warned, this is not a book to be enjoyed over many sittings, there is too much going on and things happen too quickly for that. Save it for when you have time for a really good read and enjoy it then

A fast-paced thriller with complex plots spanning two periods in time - Nazi Germany and modern day - and eventually the period in between. The characters and plots were plausible and kept me gripped throughout, with plenty of plot twists and turns. Jeff Harding's narration is truly excellent.
