This is a great book, at the start it was a bit confusing and it took me a while to get my head round but you kind of get used to it after a while and it gets quite good. I think that it had a good plot and the characters had a nice background story, except Florian who I didn't like because he was a bit selfish and didn't understand that other people were suffering as much as him. I quite liked the fact that the story was from the pint of view of Germans because, in most books, Germans are usually portrayed as the ' bad ' people , but they suffered just as much. Also the people who Germany invaded and who were persecuted, so it was nice having another point of view. though I think the writer could have started the book with only one point of view and gradually added other characters in, but who am I to tell an author how to write her books? I also liked the fact that it tied all the endings in a satisfying way ( I thought)and it didn't do what many other books do where everyone lives happily ever after and no one dies. I also liked the fact that the characters were well developed and I liked that Alfred guy died at the end because he was CREEPY and I didn't like him.
Anyway I thought it was really good and I really hope it wins.
