Journal Entry 1 by wingAnnimanniwing from Espoo, Uusimaa / Nyland Finland on Friday, May 18, 2012
From the back:

"In his work as an hotel waiter Ditie, the small but perfectly formed anti-hero of I Served the King of England, witnesses events from just before the German invasion of Czhechoslovakia in 1938 to the victory of Communism a decade later. Always with an eye for the main chance, Ditie propels us along a fantastic journey that intertwines the political and personal into a narrative that both instructs and entertains."

I didn't enjoy this quite as much as I'd wished (the long sentences and even longer paragraphs were a bit tiring...) but it was an interesting read, nevertheless. Let's see what the next reader thinks about it...
