Well, in short, this book was an awesome novel that was a combination of both fiction and non-fiction. The story started off good, it flung the reader, in this case me, into an energetic and adrenaline-filled atmosphere, giving a real feeling of being in the cross-fire of a war, as this book is based sometime between 1939 and 1945, World War 2.
The cover design was awesome, on a scale of 1-10, this cover ranks somewhere around 17! The swastika emblem showing in what looks like the moon and the title immediately told me which war the book was based in - the scene of soldiers running and holding guns told me that it was war, and the symbol told me which, so that is why I find the cover design great, because it clearly shows the time frame of the story.
The characters were great, my favourite one was Otto, as he was brave, skilled, and he had lost a lot, I won't go into the details on this part, as people don't like spoilers. I found that the story went fast at first, it didn't give the sensation of the story all happening in real time, although if they tried to fit all the time in, the book would probably be as thick as the office I am writing this review in, I mean the second chapter is set one year after the first!
The price is good, it as a fair distance away from the metaphorical wall that shows the limit of what is acceptable in the pricing of a product, so that aspect gets a score of 10. I am eager to read this book again sometime, it won't be given to a second-hand book store any time soon, that's for sure! All in all, great book, good price, and an extremely cool adventure. Happy reading!
