    In the Garden of Beasts.

    Interesting account of a low profile personage, a pre-war US Ambassador in Germany, unknown to History but with a clear view of what hitlerism would become. The book is a vivid witness of the day-to-day life in Germany in the early Thirties.

    A struggle

    For the Ambassador, his family and - at times - me. A bit long in parts but a good read overall.

    in the garden of beasts

    Excellent build up to Nazi Germany and revelation of people with their head in the sand.

    Informative, though confusing

    Quite a good history from the American POV regarding the build up in Berlin to World War II. I know it's unfair, but (having 'read' this as an audio book), my biggest problem was keeping all the names straight. I know it is standard journalistic practice, but when so many first or last names are similar, I would prefer for both names to be used every time - especially when discussing family members. I swear I'm not a complete idiot, but remembering which is the mother, the eldest daughter, the younger daughter and the daughter's female friend can be quite confusing. If not for that matter, I would have rated the book higher. So perhaps smarter readers than I will find the book less confusing and more enjoyable.
