Well, I consider Grass as a hero. Peeling the Oion is the book which attractive to me, I went different places to get this book. No book can get this treat from me. When I know Grass once was a member of the Waffen SS, words from his former works come into my mind. Feeling both sad and confused. After read From Guilty to Shame, Auschutz and after, I awared something really significant. However, this book also portrayed Grass's personal life during the World War Two. It is interesting when you read this memoir with the very history backgroud you interested as well. Some readers think Peeling the Oion is boring, but if you know Deutsch, if you have read other masterpieces of Günter Grass, no one would say that again. anyway, read about what Times said. And hopefully, most of readers could know him as a Great writer, furthermore, he tried to regret. He did.
