A slim but packed gem from Steinbeck. As someone said earlier, you will think about this book long after the 112 pages are done.

This is a quick read and a different take on a war story. I like it better than any of the Steinbeck books that I had to read in school. The story is inspiring, and the characters are believable.

This is the best 112 pages you will read. You will think about it longer than it takes to read it. Be impressed with the history of this book and be awed by by how the story is told.

Such gorgeous writing! I had forgotten what Steinbeck was like.

I really enjoyed this short book. It tells of the spirit of freedom that survives the oppression of tyranny. An excellent read. I seldom re-read a book and I re-read this one.

The Nazis banned this book during World War II, despite its sympathetic depiction of a German soldier. The Resistance movement considered it a key recruitment tool. The Americans thought it was too sympathetic to the Nazis. You figure it out.

"He watched in amazement as his thumbs rolled over and over in his own lap. Doctor Winter was a man so simple that only a profound man would know him as profound."
and later:
"Joseph was elderly and lean and serious, and his life was so complicated that only a profound man would know him to be simple. He saw nothing amazing about Dr. Winter's rolling thumbs; in fact he found them irritating."

Violence: Violence (it is war) is alluded to rather than described.
