The New York Times Book Review gave this book a rave review, but I was disappointed. There is nothing wrong with it, exactly, but I was not impressed. It's sort of Kafkaesque and allegorical. I like Kafka, but I did not see anything so remarkable about this book. Maybe its main value is historical, since it is a reaction to Nazi-ism and the German occupation of The Netherlands 1940-5.
