Among the worst books ever translaled!
 from Connecticut,  May 1, 2013

The dust jacket comments on this novel were obviously written under the influence of some hallucinatory substance or another. I read twenty plus books a month and have done for years. "A Death in Breslau" is at the absolute worst of the hundreds, maybe thousands, I've read. Every character in in the book is detestable, contemptible, and utterly impossible about which to give a flying fig. It would have mattered not a whit to me if each of them had been eviscerated and the resultant bodily openings stuffed with pissed off scorpions -- as happened to the unfortunates who contributed to this "novel's" title. I finished it only because I finish all books I begin, but fortunately for me up until "Death in Breslau" none has been as painful to complete. I'm sorry if I equivocated about my feelings about this book. I realize I should have been more direct about how much I detested it. Fortunately, reviewing it was cathartic for me even if it didn't take away the pain from having read it.

  • How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Not the issue.
  • How accurate was the on site description of the product? Same as above.
  • Please tell us about the quality of the product. A one-star poor rating doesn't do justice to this almost incomprehensible book.
