    So SO good Cannot wait for the next book because this one was just outstanding You can definitely tell Anne Blankman put in a lot of time and effort researching Hitler and his inner circle I love how the romance was gradual and took a back seat to the action, very well paced And Daniel 3 LOVE HI...

    To anyone who thinks research for a book is not worth the time or effort, Prisoner of Night and Fog proves to the contrary Based on true historical events, Anne has crafted a brilliantly compelling and incredibly authentic story entwined with real historical figures who are given a second breath of life This is a story of a girl s desperate search for the truth.Underneath it all, Prisoner of Night and Fog is a gripping account of Hitler s rise to power The plot introduces many real life characters who were part of Hitler s entourage or impacted his life in some way Naturally, fictional characters are also added to the mix to initiate an engaging mystery that, although fictional, is entangled inside real historical events I may not be a history buff, but it s clear from the start that immense research went into this novel The details and specifics give its roots as well as its characters such authenticity It s also highly atmospheric the setting came to life right before my eyes Not just the setting itself, but the energy of its people as well The mixture of fear and adoration towards Hitler and his perverted sense of patriotism is, as expected, very unsettling, but he makes for an extraordinary character study The way he thinks, the way he uses his dark charm t...

    I wished a German editor would have given the author some counsel because there are so many faults regarding the use of the German language see my status updates for that it s almost ludicrous I will never understand the need of US writers to write fictional novels on countries and cultures they never even been to only read about in books and pictures Yeah everybody can read billions of books on Hitler, the NS regime, on Hitler and his women, Hitler and his pets, hell there are even books and documentaries on Hitler s sex life But will someone not from Munich ever feel the cities vibe Tell how beautiful the English Garden smells in spring and summer in the middle of the city How the sky is always so blue and white just like the Bavarian Flag Can they conjure up the fun and buzzing days and nights in Munich s ale houses or the English Garden Watch this video to see how the English Garden in M nchen looks like If not for a different fashion, everything you see buildings and layout are the same Can they convincingly create the atmosphere of those days in the early 30ies that even a girl from Munich would be convinced Even I who wrote my master thesis on Adolf Eichmann and have read my fair share of historical documents, viewed the concentration camp in Dachau from the inside, been in th...

    She stood on the edge of night, that sliver of gray between darkness and dawn, that razor thin line separating the first part of her life and whatever lay ahead A haunting yet beautiful book No matter how it begins or ends books about WW2 always screw up my nerves, and I bet I m not the only one The story was well written but best think about this book was the information it contained I learned alot The writing style was epic, Anna Blankman did some serious crafting and blending Gretchen and Daniel s story is beautifully written and if you re interested in historical fiction WW2 you definitely should pick this up.Can t wait to have Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke in my...

    2.5 starsSigh Another well loved book that I just didn t connect to the way I would have liked.This book had GREAT potential, the premise was really intriguing and different from anything I ve read before Unfortunately, Prisoner of Night and Fog just did not work for me The novel takes place in Munich in the early 1930 s during Hitler s rise to power It s told from the point of view of the seventeen year old German girl Gretchen M ller, who basically grew up in the NSDAP with Adolf Hitler or uncle Dolf as she calls him as her father figure Gretchen is one of Hitler s favorites because her father died saving his life during the Beer Hall Putsch a couple of years earlier Real historical figures are introduced as well as fictional ones to create the main plot and mystery aspect of the novel.Clearly, this has the possibility to be a wonderful story because not only do we have the fascinating historical setting a time full of inner turmoil, political instability and economic crisis but we also have so much potential for character development, as Gretchen slowly realizes the truth about H...

    For decades since the World War II, the name Adolf Hitler has been synonymous with monster all over the world But to 17 year old Gretchen Muller, Adolf Hitler is simply Uncle Dolf, protector, substitute father, a great leader and a kind, gentle man If he wasn t, why would Gretchen s own father jump in front of a bullet to protect him Why would this somewhat strange Austrian take Gretchen s entire family under his wing We must keep in mind that Blankman portrays Germany in 1931, before the Third Reich, when Hitler s intentions were still hidden behind clever rhetoric and only those closest to him had any inkling of the monster he truly was Beatings and political assassinations were done covertly, and this young girl had nothing but the word of a trusted family friend to help form her opinion of the world The Gretchen we meet at the beginning of this story is a follower, a brainwashed creature, Hitler s golden pet Even though she wishes to become a doctor, she isn t used to thinking for herself because, as Hitler likes to point out, a young girl s brain is like wax, soft and pliable, ready to be shaped at any man s will But as things around her stop...

    You will never learn what I am thinking And those who boast most loudly that they know my thought, to such people I lie even Adolf Hitler Setting Berlin and Munich, Germany 1933Coverly Love No this is way too close of a close up for my liking.Plot Germany 1933 WWI has been over for fifteen years, but Germany is still suffering Bitterly poor and living in poverty the German people need someone to look up to Such is the case for sixteen year old Gretchen Muller, who along with her mother, her father and older brother is now a part of the newly formed Socialist Party, guided by the charismatic Adolf Hitler known to her as Uncle Dolf Gretchen s father was one of Adolf Hitler s most loyal workers, until he was shot to death saving Hitler s life That s at least what Gretchen has been taught to believe Until she meets a Jewish reporter named Daniel Cohen He has new information about her father s death He wasn t killed, he was murdered But by whom This is the question Gretchen must try and figure out, even if it means trusting the one man s...

    Review originally posted at you read for enjoyment and to escape And then sometimes, you read because you know a book is good for you and it s important for you to read it Prisoner of Night and Fog is definitely one of the latter books That s not to say it isn t enjoyable it is, in some parts But for me, PoNaF was definitely a serious, thriller of a book that you learn from it wasn t always fun, but I am glad I read it.The plot clicks along pretty quickly there were a few moments that lagged a bit in the middle but for the most part, the action rose and fell quickly and kept me very compelled Blankman effortlessly weaves Gretchen s story, her father s death, and her encounters with Hitler and the rest of the top brass in the National Socialist party into the story That was the most impressive and interesting feat of this book that I really believed that this could have happened.For me, this book was driven by plot than by my interest in the actual characters Gretchen seemed a very typical YA heroine a little naive at first, slowly discovering that she s different from everyone around her and she s been doing everything wrong by believing in the National Socialist party sorry, was that a spoiler You knew she was going to figure out that the Nazis weren t good people, right Daniel, the Jewish reporter who first informs her that her father s death might not be as it seemed, again, seemed like a very t...

    This is probably going to be a tough book to review and rate as well.I equally enjoyed the book and also felt it was average at certain points Prisoner of Night and Fog is a historical fiction book where we follow the story of Gretchen, the girl who looked up to Hitler as her father Gretchen s father died by protecting Hitler from shots that were fired Her dad saved Hitler s life and Hitler took Gretchen and her family under his care Sweet isn t it Well things are about to change when Gretchen meets this Jew journalist who informs her that her Dad did not protect Hitler by choice but was murdered He did not sacrifice his life but was murdered and fell in line to where the shots were fired.This takes Gretchen by surprise and she investigates the mystery of her Dad s death Doesn t the plot sound amazing I bet it does Firstly, I enjoyed that Hitler was involved heavily in the story line The plot was jam packed with so many twists and action that it was hard to resist enjoying the book Every chapter had something amazing to offer which added depth to the plot Secondly, there was companionship between 2 types of people that are forbidden to have any forms of communication And the way they were there for each other was heartwarming I simply loved the last s...

    I don t know what took me so long to pick this one up No idea I bought this in March 2016, and I can t understand why I didn t read it sooner It s beyond my comprehension.This is the story of Gretchen whose father was one of Hitler s dearest comrades, she s been raised to think a Jew is nothing but a subhuman, that Hitler will one day save their beloved Germany And one day she meets this Jewish reporter, Daniel, and she gradually learns all she thought was true is, in fact, a lie.Just by reading the synopsis, you know this story has a romance in it, and you know who Gretchen is going to fall in love with, there is no big plot twist about that But it s not one of those cheesy romances This romance only happens than halfway through the book, it s not insta love, and how could you believe it is I mean, we re talking here about a girl raised among the Nazi Party and a Jew, how could you expect an insta love That would be absolutely ridiculous And that s why it s a good romance, because it s plausible, it makes sense, you see how it happens, and why they fall in love with each other.Gretchen is a really strong woman I d like to say that first, because it matters She s also full of prejudices, and how could she not But once she learns something s wrong wi...
