    This book should be required reading!!!!

    I actually read this book in German as part of my German Literature and Language Minor. I came to B & N to buy a copy of this book for a friend of mine. This book is one of my favorite books ever. Max Frisch made a very valid criticism of modern life when he wrote this book nearly fifty years ago. This book covers some very controversial topics, and I highly recommend that you read this book. I only ask that you approach it as the piece of literature that it is. I especially enjoyed it as I am a science major. It is important to maintain the human side. Enjoy!
