    Relevant As I read this gripping (yes, gripping) novel, I couldn't help but recognize it's relevance in today's America. So much so, it frightened me at how easy it is to lose our freedoms and how quickly young people who have no real knowledge of our struggles to keep our freedom can be brainwashed. This book needs to be required reading in schools, but, alas, in the America we now live in this would be suppressed by incorrect fact checks.

    Awful Book looks like he read some history accounts and crammed all of it into a book. As one who actually lived this story I found the book offensive for its lack of effort. He certainly is not a writer

    Although this book was fictional, it offered great insight into the 20th century history of Czechoslovakia. It truly brought the human experience to life.
