Probably ranks in my top ten favourite novels.
I loved this book. It's a family saga of wide range and poignancy, seen through the eyes of the youngest member of a family haunted by chance and war. Hitler's takeover of Germany is well described as the horror and terror of being Jewish increase and the lives of those not Jewish are become interwined with one Jewish baronial family are also affected. I recommend this highly!
Quintessential literary novel. Some good ideas, but all over the map as regards story-telling. I couldn't plough all the way through.
I liked it, but thought it could have been a bit shorter. It helps us understand what it was like in Germany for the Germans who weren't Nazis.
