    "If religion and/or faith is your thing, you'd enjoy this book. If it isn't, you're going to get bored very quickly! Before reading it, I was somewhat familiar with George Muller, but I didn't realize the book was so Christian-heavy. I'm not saying it's a bad book because of this, but it's just not up my alley. It felt more like reading a bible than an autobiography! "

    "This book is really great and tells about the largely unknown plot to kill Hitler. It didn't all exactly go to plan but this book goes through the ins and outs of the details using historical fact. It is well-written, developed and has a tremendous story arc that really grabs you. You should pick this one up."

    "As a Christian myself I am opened to reading many books that would enhance my spirituality and the way I view the world. This book was a big eye opener about the persecution of Christians by the Russian's and a man's own life in prison. After reading this you don't feel sorry for the little struggles you are going through. It is the best book to read when you are feeling bad about yourself and really need to get back to the straight and narrow."
