The winner of the poll for the from Germany was The Tin Drum, closely followed by The Book Thief. So both will be December's reads.

If you want to share your opinions, good or bad, favourite quotes or anything else - this is the place to do it.

I read the Tin Drum many years ago. One of the best books I've ever read. Enjoy everyone!

Only a few chapters in to The Tin Drum, but it's got me hooked already. It's very witty:

" 'Well, I knew it would be a boy, even if sometimes I said it would be a little lass.'

Thus prematurely acquainted with feminine logic, I heard the following: 'When little Oskar is three years old, we'll give him a tin drum.' "
