    "I was putting off buying this due to it having reviews like "confusing ending" however when watched the series on Amazon I was amazed and stunned at the same time. And i figured with all books and movies/tv adaptations the book is always better.We always see the commercials on tv for the what 'ifs' about history what if the Nazis won the war whats if World War II ended entirely different. We don't know for sure how this would actually have turned out but PKD offers some amazing insight to what it would have been like. Each character has there own unique persona and unique motives for what they are really out to get. Every character is masterfully developed. PKD doesn't just focus on the character's PKD is able to fully capture you imagination and create a beautifully horrid reality inside your mind as you read. This is one of the books that you will read reread and still be wondering about what truly happened or what the book was really about. One of the most complex and inciting books I have read and loved so deeply in a long time. Overall if you like alternative-history or books with complex backgrounds and amazing story's you should be sure to read this."

    "Pretty good book. Gripping and emotional, which is hard to say about a subject that's been written about so many countless times. I did think it got a bit too flowery at some places, and some of the dialogue felt weak, but overall it was worth a read."

    "I wanted a good historical fiction focused on the Nazi occupation of France in WWII. This book was fascinating and made me think about things. It is so easy to vilify people in wartime that we often don't see the humanity in each side. A good story and a book I could not stop reading. "

    "The women within the book have to fight their own way, during the german occupation of france during the second world war. This book isn't specifically about nazis, but they do play a primary role; the book is about the girl's survival."

    "This is a nice noir-style mystery/adventure novel set in WW2. Missing Jewels, dames, etc. It can be a little tropey but it's still an enjoyable historical fiction read."

    "The novel is written by a person who debriefed the Nazi's so it is a very interesting and intellectual take on the events that occurred. It is a very good read, and gives harrowing details into an event in history that highlights not only Hitler's but the rest of the Nazi party's atrocities."
