What is perhaps surprising, considering the fairly grim setting of the book, is the humor that runs throughout, as the young couple faces the difficulties of life in post-World War I Germany.

This is the second book I read by Fallada and I am seduced again, his prose is simple and makes the story seem like a real one. The absence of climax also contributes to this feeling of doomed reality. I encourage anyone with an interest in 1930s Germany to read it!

I had to read this book as a requirement for one of my language classes in college. While the storyline can be dry at times, it does a great job of detailing the life of the average couple in Germany during the rise of the Nazi party. It is also a very easy read for it being a translation. For the most part i enjoyed it and would reccommend it.
