I certainly don't mind good fiction.
Hmmm...Let's see here, an Oprah selection in 1997. I'll try it anyway
Amazon's reviews seem to be saying it's not an easy read and the main character is tough to identify with. However, what really grabs the reader is the description of Germany between the wars. Several reviews called it a masterpiece.
This book sounds intriguing . I'll definitely check it out. Thanks woy.
"I fought because I understood and could not bear to understand, that it was my destiny -- unlike that of my father, whose fate it was to hear the roar of the crowd -- to sit in the stands with most men and acclaim others. It was my fate, my destiny, my end, to be a fan."
