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

bybookie, January 4, 2012

An intimate look at Germany in the 30's through the eyes of our American ambassador and his high spirited daughter. Eric Larson gives you a compelling view of the sinister rise of Hitler and the third Reich through the diaries of the planspoken Ambassador Dodd and Martha his romantic, willfull daughter. The writer makes the history of that period come alive in this well researched and fascinating book. If you liked Larson's "The Devil in White City" you also will like this book!

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (The Millennium Trilogy #1) by Stieg Larsson

A riveting plot and riveting characters made it hard to put this book down. It's bittersweet that Stieg Larsson won't be writing any more memorable books. His voice will be missed.
