Since GCSE German and that godawful song by The Hoff - I'd been intrigued about Germany and moreover the Berlin wall and the division of East and West.

This book not only challenges my German language skills and answers many questions regarding the segregation of Germany,but it raises new suspicions, questions relationships and entertains.

Couldn't put this book down until I finished it. Fascinating place and time with interesting characters and an unexpected ending. As a straight man I related to the emotions and feelings of the protagonist who desired more than Heiko was willing or able to give. Highly recommended.
