    Great book! This is the first or second book I've read about the Second World War, and as a third generation of Jewish Holocaust survivors, I was fascinated by the book, its aesthetics and  sensitivity. 
    If you wish to enjoy the book and study a lot too, you mus read it.

    Mosaic

    When I had first started reading that book, I was awfully afraid it was going to be overlong and boring. Instead, the novel instantly caught me. Boll gives even the tiniest details in Leni's life, everything she likes and dislikes, with a unique sardonic and sarcastic style. The book is plain excellent, exciting I could say, but it isn't just about Leni: it mirrors the whole society of Germany at the time, their fears and the general neurosis that had befallen them, before and after the landmark of the WWII and the ascension of the Nazis. The book is indeed a group portrait, as its title informs us: all the characteristic types of German people of that so intense historical period and the gereral mood and way of thinking become crystal-clear to us, through Boll's gradually evolving and climactic way of writing. Overall, a masterpiece. One of the books I can read and reread without being forced.
