Journal Entry 2 by wingStoepbrakwing at Cape Town, Western Cape South Africa on Saturday, December 20, 2014

9 out of 10


This turned out to be a great read. With 'comic observations and spicy dialogue' (as the back cover suggests) it starts out as a relaxing read with interesting insights into social norms and interaction in the period leading up to World War II. Gradually it gets a bit more complicated and less superficial, leaving the reader in the end with quite a few things to ponder.

Brilliantly written.
