It is an interesting read but nothing earth shattering. The time is also a little weird in that it occurs in the late 1980s while there is still an East & West Germany & Berlin. This story happens in West Berlin but East is mentioned as well. It was a time when I was in college so I kind of understand that but the book wasn't written till 2005 so a lot of time has passed as well.
I have posted it on PBS and it is the only copy on the system. No idea how quickly it will move, could be weeks, months or years, don't really know. Now I am down to just reading Wonderful Tonight, Pattie Boyd's story, she a child of the '60s & '70s I guess, married to both George Harrison and Eric Clapton. Only 40 some pages in so just getting started. I will probably start another tonight. I have spent some time looking at books for vacation too, I prefer paperbacks and simple reads--still narrowing it down right now.
