really liked it
Read from August 03 to 08, 2012

This book was the first one I picked up based on a Goodreads recommendation. I am a fan of historical fiction, especially WWII and the German influence (I was a German major in college and studied abroad for 6 months). I felt like the book was set up well and had 3 distinct parts. The main characters, Eleanor and Richard, were likeable and engaging. I found myself reading when I could throughout the day today just to finish it as part 3 (including the ending) really built up well and had a lot of twists and turns to keep me guessing. The ending made me feel like the author would write another book with these characters again; this is his first novel. I would recommend this book to someone who enjoys historical fiction, or just a good spy novel. The other great thing about this book is that it is set during the 1936 Berlin Olympics and I read it during the current Olympics. I think the author was wise to set his release date for July 2012 to correspond to the Olympics.
