In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler's Berlin by Erik Larson
In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler's Berlin

Kensington Reader, January 23, 2012

" In the Garden of the Beasts," is a gripping non-fiction book that reads like a spy novel. The time is 1933 when a big mistake is made in sending a very middle class, non-diplomatic man and his family to Berlin to serve as ambassador. Of course we know what is going to happen, but he doesn't and makes a mess of his ambassadorship by his admiration for Hitler and having his single daughter date S.S. men. It was a scandal by itself, and in retrospect you might say how could they have been so stupid?
Eric Larson is also the author of "Devil in the White City," another true story that is written like fine fiction.
