    (Munich* (181 POCHE)) [PDF NEW] Ó currencyconvertor.co Robert Harris is best known for his novel “Fatherland” which offers an alternative history of WWII where Adolph Hitler prevails. It was a good book as was “Enigma” but sadly what Harris offers up here is nothing like his previous work. In the ‘Acknowledgments’ Harris admits to a fascination with the Munich Agreement he’s had for over 30 years. He even explains he made a BBC TV documentary for the

I've read all of his books and this is the worst of the lot. The characters are two dimensional. Plot devices are feeble and contrived. Tension levels are very low. It feels rushed and under written. Disappointed. I used to really look forward to a new

    (Munich* (181 POCHE)) [PDF NEW] Ó currencyconvertor.co As a fan of Robert Harris, I found this novel less good than I'd hoped and below his usual standard. Usually Harris has a talent for making even dry subjects into heart thumping, intelligent thrillers.

    (Munich* (181 POCHE)) [PDF NEW] Ó currencyconvertor.co This was a very good book. Although I knew the “basic” story of the Munich Agreement this takes you right to the heart of the events in September 1938. Of course a few of the characters are fiction. But many are the real people who were involved in the meeting — although, of course, some of their actions and conversations are doubtless sprinkled with fiction for the good of the story. It is a brilliant read. And I will be reading by R

As a fan of Robert Harris I found this novel less good than I d hoped and below his usual standard Usually Harris has a talent for making even dry subjects into heart thumping intelligent thrillers He had good subject matter here the setting is the Munich peace accords of 1938 where Neville Chamberlain appeased Hitler by agreeing he should take over the Sudetenland But despite that the story never seems to igniteThe novel focusses on two mid ranking diplomats one on the German side and one British and is set over just a few days This gives insight into the happenings on both sides Both characters are unobjectionable but neither is really loveable I didn t feel a strong connection to either and both seemed uite bland The supporting characters both real and imagined aren t any better The character I found most interesting was Chamberlain who gets a sympathetic portrayal History has often portrayed him as a moral coward but in this day and age I m pretty sure we d be applauding his efforts to avoid a warOne of the difficulties faced by Harris is that readers know the outcome in advance You don t need to know much about history and I know very little myself to know World War II started in 1939 So there s never any doubt for the reader that war will be averted This takes away a lot of the possible tension I d expected peril for the characters but there s not even that For a spy novel there s little spying and for a thriller there are few thrills You never get the sense of the characters being in real immediate danger There s no heart stopping tension or compulsion to read all nightOverall it s a decent historical novel which I found interesting as it covers a piece of history that is often overlooked by the casual person like me who gave up history aged 13 Unlike most of Harris novels it doesn t function well as a thriller political or otherwise and lacks the tension that most of his novels have in spades Read it if you re interested in the period and want to know but otherwise it s probably not worth it
