Jamie (jlynnd1977) | 396 comments What did you think of Every Man Dies Alone? I am about 30% and I put it down. I had heard a raving review and so far it hasn't sucked me in. Is it worth a second go?

Hi! I also picked up the book after hearing rave reviews. I found the beginning very slow, but I have to say the second part of the book went by much faster, a lot of things soon tied together.

Must admit, it's not the best novel I've read, but for its historical context and rich detail I found it invaluable. Very few books capture what life in Germany was like for Germans. Plus, Fallada himself had a very interesting life.

Stick with it, i'm sure you will like the second half. Keep me posted.
