If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

Catatonic patients at a mental hospital.

What could Christoph Fischer have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Create a more believable heroine. Ludwigia come across as a dim wit who is doomed to make all the wrong choices so that the author can insert her narrative into a high school world history book.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Tessa Petersen?

Daffy Duck could have done a better job. The narrator is flat, unemotional and boring. If I could have rated it zero, I would have.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not really

Any additional comments?

I just don't understand how this book got so many high ratings. There is nothing new, inventive or thought provoking here,
