“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

Just finished Every Man Dies Alone, Hans Fallada. This book is a visceral experience.
I'm just about done and I agree it is a must-read.
I'd say it's a book everyone who reads should read.
I'll be passing it on to a friend next week so I'll probably finish tonight.

Interested to know what you make of it, Daniel. I enjoyed it. It did get a little repetitive in the later stages.
I hit a rut.. I am struggling with this book. But, I am going to China in 8 days. I am sure to burn through a few books.
