  • Tobi's Game on Jan. 13, 2013

    Tobi's Game By Steve Evans I find this a tender, emotional, well written love story where good and selflessness appear, only to be set upon by inordinate evil which dominates everything - the latter vividly brought to life in the character of Tobi, who needs his hatred of the Jews to fuel his own life and give him a sense of freedom, so called. The author reveals his exceptional knowledge and understanding of Germany, and the places, the history and feeling of the time. He is not afraid of censure in portraying the deeds, intimate feelings and needs of his characters, which makes the reader more intimately involved. I find this also puts a new slant in history for me on the Nazi plan for perfecting the human race - which had great potential - inevitably turning to utter evil and tragic disaster - & making me wonder "What if this plan had succeeded"? In all this is an intense, sometimes horrifying, but indeed a very thought provoking, insightful and very compelling read -- a book which intrigued me and held my interest.
  • Demented on Feb. 20, 2013

    An unusual story of revenge, told as a suspenseful thriller with'dementia' portrayed vividly, genuinely, and believably in various areas and characters throughout. The descriptions are very realistic, often rather sordid, but obviously related from intimate knowledge by a talented very able author with good quality writing. There is an intriguing, gripping and very well planned plot - the brilliant descriptive style bringing reality to the fore I thoroughly recommend this book as a very enjoyable, well written read, -- and one which grips the reader to the final curtain.
