Looks like a pretty awful experience (reading this book). Plus, the whole idea that his sister not allowing their incestuous relationship to continue into adulthood having caused him to seek out men with which to relive that relationship is a pretty huge problem, for me and -I'd imagine- others; on multiple levels.

Besides the reviews on this site, here's another someone listed:

The idea behind it (according to one GR review): capturing what it was like to be within the atrocities of the Third Reich - is an interesting premise. Also about comparisons between Communism and Nazism, and that period and others since. But really sounds like a whole bunch of other content was lathered on as well that makes it truly truly excruciating.
