Read full description of the books:This book only earned it's additional second star because the idea in it really isn't bad. The writing is okay, as well. But what is most striking about this novel are the ridiculously bad, if not stupidly written characters. Konsalik clearly writes characters a way he'd like them, and he likes nymphomanic women, and many of them. In fact, there is not one female character in his novel who isn't nymphomanic, and of course the poor male characters aren't to be blamed that they have to lust for them?
But also the male characters rarely get beyond being sterotypical figures in something that at times feels like a cardboardtheatre in Konsalik's writing, which unfortunately never grows beyond being a better dime novel.
If it weren't for the interesting plot behind it and an okay pace of writing, this would've gotten one star from me.
Read information about the authorHeinz G. Konsalik (pseudonym of Heinz Günther) was a German novelist.
Many of his books deal with war and showed the German human side of things as experienced by their soldiers and families at home, for instance Das geschenkte Gesicht (The Mutilated Face), which deals with a German soldier's recovery after his sledge ran over a personnel mine and destroyed his face, and how this affected his relationship with his wife at home. It places no judgment on the German position in the war and simply deals with human beings in often desperate situations, doing what they were forced to do under German military law.
Der Arzt von Stalingrad (The Doctor of Stalingrad) made him famous and was adapted into a movie in 1958. Some 83 million copies sold of his 155 novels made him the most popular German novelist of the postwar era and many of his novels were translated and sold through book clubs. He is buried in Cologne.
