"Dancing with Eva"
by: Alan Judd.
2007; 214 pages.
Dancing with Eva had promise. It really did. The premise behind it was a good one.
An old man visits an old woman, who's also an old friend. The two of them are likely the only two surviving people who were in Hitler's inner-circle and there when it all went down.
Why is he choosing now to visit? What does he want? Hans and Edith remember the past, each with a secret that can destroy the other.
Unfortunately, tehre's no nice way to put it, but this book blows. It's not good. The writing is mediocre, the characters are undeveloped, the story flashes between past and present inconsistently, and well, it's just not good. It evokes no emotion from the reader at all. (Well, except for thanksgiving when the book is finally finished).
I don't recommend that you read it. It's not worth your time. Or mine to write more about it.
