One star is about ten stars too many.

One star is about 10 stars too many. Too many instances of contrived and unrealistic coincidences that defy credulity just to create a story. And, the main characters can communicate in English, German, French, Polish, and Czech. Really? The final, real undoing for me was the listening in 1947 to a radio broadcast on a transistor radio, something that wasn't even created until 1954, and even then not widely available until several years later. And then there are the questions that the main protagonist keeps asking herself REPEATEDLY! And, they are each written in such a way that the author must have simply done a copy/paste each time. If you're looking for a mindless way to read nothing but words, this is the book for you. Otherwise, don't waste your time on 360 pages that easily could be condensed into 25.
