A must-read for anyone researching East Germany during the Cold War. Would recommend to leisure readers also, simply a fascinating history.

I find the subject matter interesting, so I would have given it a "good" score regardless but I think a more skilled writer would have done a much better job. The sentences in this book lack flow so the book reads rather clunky. I also found Ms. Funder's attitude towards the people of the GDR to be quite condescending. She also injects herself into the narrative too often. I'm interested in the stories of the people "from behind the Berlin Wall", not her.
