Every Man Dies Alone by Hans Fallada

After their son dies in the war, The Quangel’s begin their own acts of resistance. Over the years, they leave hundreds of unsigned postcards in public places all over Berlin. Unknown to them the cards end up with the Gestapo almost immediately, and one policeman is obsessed in discovering who is behind the cards.

This book is slow to get off the ground, the first half was hard, but the second half was outstanding and the ending was magnificent.

5 Stars

  1. I've heard this book is haunting and has a very emotional ending, which is why I recently bought a copy. Can't wait to read it. I've linked to your review on War Through the Generations.
