Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan Wolf | 2/14/2014

    " A pre-WWII story to explain why we don't see it coming. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marianne V | 1/25/2014

    " Since I had just read Children of Wrath, I couldn't wait to read The Sleepwalkers. It proved to be just as good. The protagonist, Detective Willi Kraus is great. I love the depiction of Berlin in the 1930s as well as the foreshadowing and begins of the Nazi horrors. While the inclusion of so many famous emigres (Edward Mendelsohn, Robert Oppenheimer, Marlene Dietrich, Albert Einsteing), not to mention the infamous monsters of the Third Reich stretch belief, they make for a great story. Can't wait to read his third book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zada | 1/14/2014

    " Very interesting and well written. Although it was a novel many instances were true to historical fact. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ivy | 12/12/2013

    " Had a bit of a hard time staying focused with this book. But ended great and would recommend to friends. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 5/3/2013

    " Book club selection... not what I would normally pick up, but interesting nonetheless. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gillian | 4/4/2013

    " Won this from the Giveaways! Very good plot, I really enjoyed the twists and even though this setting of World War II can get a little redundant, I think this one was done very nicely. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eddie | 8/28/2012

    " A good read but knowing history, it was not a surprise ending. Jewish police inspector can prove that the Nazis (in 1932) were conducting numerous surgical experiments on 1000s of people, not only Jews. Suspenseful as the events ratcheted up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bt | 1/8/2012

    " I was so excited to receive this book in the mail i have checked the time on the giveaway like 100 times! it was sooooo good! i recommend this book to anyone from a senior in high school to the old lady next door! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Seth Morris | 8/15/2011

    " Really liked this book. The story was a bit predictable, but I was still into it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Albert | 4/24/2011

    " This is an awesome little mystery novel set in pre-Hitler Germany. Paul Grossman does an admirable job of capturing the mood of that time but it is not only a reflection of the period but a damn good little mystery. Pick this one up! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori | 4/12/2011

    " well written but really disturbing subject matter "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cara | 4/3/2011

    " A mystery set in my favorite time period — Germany around WWII. A celebrated Jewish German detective is trying to solve a grotesque murder as Hitler rises to power in Germany. It was a real page turner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane | 3/27/2011

    " This was a new Historical Fiction book that takes place in Germany right before Hitler takes over. It was a good book. A bit graphic but it was not a good time in history. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Penny | 2/25/2011

    " This is his first published novel and it is an outstanding read. Set in Berlin 1932 it was a history lesson as well. I will definitely watch for more books by this author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynn | 2/8/2011

    " Disappointing. It's ground that has been mined by better writers with more interesting characters. "
