I am one of those who judges a book by its cover. As I was walking through the book store I notice the cover and I was immediately intrigued. After reading the excerpt I decided to read it and couldn't put it down. The story grabs you from the very beginning. You feel like you in living during that time until something out of the ordinary brings you back to reality. Some parts are too unreal, but after all...IT IS A NOVEL. Great story line. I really recommend this book. It is a great historical fiction novel.

Great concept, not so great execution.

The plot has so much potential but fails to really grab the reader. The twists are predictable and main character (Marta) weak. It was simply not believable that a woman of her hesitance would work for the resistance, survive a Nazi prison, and a well known assasin.

    Very Unpredictable Ending

    Really enjoyed reading this after having read the Kommendants Girl. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 3 was because of the unpredictable and well written ending. Don't read this book until you have read The Kommendants Girl first. I gave that book 5 stars because it was excellent.

    a must read!!!

    I had no idea this was a sequel to another Pam Jenoff book (the Kammandant's Girl). However, the story-line still made incredible sense and was a great read. I would always lose track of time and crave to find out where the story takes me next. The story-line moves along smoothly and takes unexpected twists and turns until the very end. I loved Paul's character, the dialogues between him and Marta certainly tugs on my heart strings. My only pseudo-complaint is that the development of Marta (the main female character) was a bit contradicting. The author seems as if she couldn't decide on whether Marta would be a weak or strong character. For example, Marta is constantly in need to be rescued, yet could fight against a Russian assassin.

    All in all, I loved it, I didn't want the book to end. My heart would skip a beat chapter after chapter! Now I must read the Kammdant's Girl (reading in reverse order..yikes!)
