Although both works are "fiction", the authority of each writer is plainly stamped on each novel. The subject matter may be grim, and the detail uncompromising, but the characters' humanity shines through to make these uplifting reads.… (mais)

This is a phenomenal book - it is able to show the system of oppression in Nazi Germany at a level that makes it clear how much courage it took for anyone to show the smallest of resistance - and how such resistance has ripple effects around them that pulls any and all of their family, friends, colleagues, acquaintances in. It is able to show the pathetic meanness of human beings who exploit others without second thought - and that of those who don't think at all. If you want to know what it feels like to live in a country where neighbors spy on each other, where it is rewarded to report people to the police without evidence, for ridiculous infractions, you should read this book. After all, there is now at least one state in the U.S. where this is going to be perfectly fine to do. ( )

Despite the title and the fact that the novel is about Nazi era Berliners and the terrible fates of all who attempt to defy the Party it is surprisingly uplifting and hopeful, even funny. It's written in a style reminiscent of a spy-intrigue novel but there are many more layers of deeper meaning than your typical spy novel. There's a motley cast of characters and each person and their story is extremely well developed. Initially the reader can easily see each character as a good guy or a bad guy, but these lines get very blurred as we realize the power the Nazi Party has over everyone's actions and thoughts. They are all victims in different ways. Ultimately it's a tale of totalitarianism and its effects on every day people. ( )

This novel, based on the true story of a couple in Berlin, describes everyday life under a totalitarian regime, Nazism. I have already read about such (The Gulag Archipelago, Darkness at Noon, 1984, Animal Farm, Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, Berlin Diary, The Diary of a Young Girl, Doctor Zhivago, Stalin: Triumph and Tragedy and others) so and did not learn much else. Thus this merits about two stars for such readers. But it is rather well written, quite realistic, and worth five stars for the reader new to and interested in the topic.

The subjects of the book, an ordinary German man and wife, used their only available means of resistance (secretly posting handprinted anti-Nazi leaflets here and there), risking their lives to rebel against the tyranny of the Nazis which was terrorizing every citizen and prosecuting an unjust war. Their efforts, they later learned, had little or no effect on the regime.

They were discovered by the Gestapo, beat up, imprisoned and executed. They knew they had acted and were dying for a good cause and so were relatively at peace with their sentences. Indeed they were better off than millions of other people, innocent even of opposition, who were tortured, dehumanized, starved or worked to death, shot or gassed, and had not even the meager consolation of a meaningful death. Still, the efforts and bravery of people like our couple, and there must have been many thousands, surely are worth remembering. Fallada wrote this story in order to sustain the meaning of their sacrifices.

There are always a great many such people among us who would act (or have acted) heroically when the need arises. Most of us can only hope not to suffer the misfortune of being tested, even at the cost of never knowing for certain how well we might respond.

To learn how Nazism evolved and operated, see Hannah Arendt's "The Origins of Totalitarianism", which I just reviewed. You get Stalin as well as Hitler. Bring your reading skills. ( )

This book has been on my TBR pile for a while, I think it was a Christmas gift two Christmas's ago in fact. I'm not sure why it has sat on my shelf for so long, perhaps the length put me off a little (602 pages) or perhaps I was worried it wouldn't live up to the hype. Both Goodreads and Amazon have it very highly rated by its users and it also features in the '1001 books' list. So, would it live up to the hype or would I be left feeling disappointed?

Initially I found it a little slow going, I'm not sure if that was me or the story. Fallada writes about the small details a lot and so initially I couldn't help but feel that the story wasn't going anywhere. Fortunately Roland Butter, SueK & Karsa Orlong told me to stick with as it would be worth it once it got going.

Well all I can say is WOW!

The story is gripping. You really get a feeling of the over-bearing paranoia that the people not directly fighting in the war faced. Out right poverty and regular violence and blackmail faced anyone not part of the party. Despite that there is a glimpse into the human aspect of most of the characters. One minute you feel a bit of sympathy for the likes of Borkhausen & more so Escherich and then you despise them.

Escherich is an interesting character. He is a gestapo officer and therefore should be very unlikeable. No doubt his job is not a moral one but at the same time you get the feeling he is only doing what he has to do to get by. He commits a horrible crime to get his superiors off his back, would he have done it if he didn't have that constant threat hanging over him, probably not.

I really liked the writing style it is nice and relaxed and the story moves along but at a fairly slow pace. The tension really become ratcheted up over a long period and it really makes you want to read on when you know you have to stop and do something else. I regularly found myself reading at work, before going to sleep, while eating and as soon as I woke up. No book has ever done this to me before

Normally books about the war are focused on soldiers and the holocaust, quite rightly so. However the suffering and sacrifice of normal people is just as an important subject and one that is often overlooked. I started off thinking that Otto Quangel was a bit of a fool for not just toeing the line and keeping his head down. Over the course of the book though, I found myself questioning my own morality and thinking about how brave him and Anna were. As has been proven, apathy by normal people can as has lead to evil being carried out. When it is remarked that what they are doing is of tiny significance and putting their lives at risk his reply is that it is better to do something than to idly stand by while wrong is being committed. To be able to keep your morals and take a stand under these circumstances is something very few of us would do. They had an escape in some ways as they had a lot of money saved and could have lived elsewhere in Germany.

The edition I have is a Penguin Modern Classic and has some detail at the end about the true story and a few photos. Don't make the mistake I did, I have a habit of flicking to the back just to see how many pages there are in the book. Unfortunately I happened to see the title of a photo which spoiled a part of the story for me. There is one quote that really stood out for me.

"The worse it gets, the better it will be. The sooner it will all be over!"

This book is a keeper for me, it's something I will read again, there is no doubt about that. If you have a copy, read it now, seriously. ( )

Every Man Dies Alone is a good book, a readable, suspense-driven novel from an author who a) knew what he was doing when it came to writing commercial fiction, and b) had lived through, and so knew intimately, the period he was writing about. This is an extraordinary combination. I hesitate to use a word like "serendipity," but cruelly enough, that's exactly what it was.

To read “Every Man Dies Alone,” Fallada’s testament to the darkest years of the 20th century, is to be accompanied by a wise, somber ghost who grips your shoulder and whispers into your ear: “This is how it was. This is what happened.”

He might be right: whether their act was big or small, no one could risk more than his life. Each according to his strength and abilities, but the main thing was, you fought back.
"What did you expect anyway, Quangel? You, an ordinary worker, taking on the Fuhrer, who is backed by the Party, the Wehrmacht, the SS, the SA?...It's ludicrous! You must have known you had no chance! It's a gnat against an elephant. I don't understand it, a sensible man like you!"

"No, and you will never understand it, either. It doesn't matter it one man fights or ten thousand; if the one man sees he has no option but to fight, then he will fight, whether he has others on his side or not. I had to fight, and given the chance I would do it again. Only I would do it very differently."
"Who can say? At least you opposed evil. You weren't corrupted..."

"Yes, and then they kill us, and what good did our resistance do?"

"Well, it will have helped us to feel that we behaved decently till the end... As it was, we all acted alone, we were caught alone, and every one of us will have to die alone. But that doesn't mean that we are alone, Quangel, or that our death will be in vain..." (Dr. Reichhardt, p.434)
Much of the money was siphoned off by the Party, and scholars have noted that it kept the populace short of extra cash and acclimated to the idea of privation.  (Footnote, p. 24)
Even the worst Party member was worth more to them than the best ordinary citizen.  Once in the Party, it appeared you could do what you liked, and never be called for it.  They termed that rewarding loyalty with loyalty. (p. 24)
