I gather I am the first to write a reader review for this book. I am 67 years old and more or less lived through the events of history which are described. I am a trained classial musician. This book was so very depressing! Perhaps that is because it reminds us how little we have learned in the past century. But this book also got me to thinking about the writing of novels in a negative way. What is the motivation of a novelist? What can he tell us that the newspaper cannot? To whom is he speaking? Is a novel more than a long answer to the question 'what if'? Maybe this book should have been a short story.
