    PDF posthd.pro ¶ Alfabethuset PDF Ê alfabethuset kindle, Alfabethuset PDF/EPUBI decided to read this book because I'm a fan of Jussi Adler Olsen's 'Department ' mysteries and thought this standalone written prior to the Dep't books might be a good read As the story opens it's 1944 and World War II is raging English flyboys Bryan Young and James Teasdale are sent on a mission to do aerial reconnaissance over Germany where they get shot down After some hide and seek with German soldiers Bryan and James make their way onto a German medical transport train throw off the bodies of a couple of Nazi officers and assume their identities They soon find themselves in a mental hospital called Alphabet House for shell shocked SS officials; there Bryan and James must endure endless electroshock and drug therapy Though their 'mental illness' allows them to remain silent Brya

    PDF posthd.pro ¶ Alfabethuset PDF Ê alfabethuset kindle, Alfabethuset PDF/EPUBWhile I received this from Netgalley a VERY long time ago in exchange for an honest review I ended up listening to this book on Audible4 starsThis is a tale of two booksThe first half of is mind numbingly monotonous and downright boring almost to the point of putting it on the DNF shelf The second part is exceedingly suspenseful complete with violent confrontations a touch of romance and a tale of revenge on a trio of monstrous villains Adler Olsen touches on the universal themes of the horrors of war man's inhumanity to man the corrosiveness of guilt and the cleansing nature of forgiveness This book was written in 1997 and it is easy to see that Adler Olsen hadn’t yet developed the

    PDF posthd.pro ¶ Alfabethuset PDF Ê alfabethuset kindle, Alfabethuset PDF/EPUBIt’s got evil Nazis and narrow escapes It takes place in a mental hospital staffed with soulless doctors and nurses whose “care” is administered with eual parts cruelty It’s got betrayal and a swift and certain death sentence for anyone suspected of deception Add in a pair of World War II British pilots trapped behind enemy lines and faking mental illness to avoid capture So what’s not to like? Plenty as it turns out For most of the first 200 pages Bryan the novel’s narrator is lying in a hospital bed feigning catatonia He listens as German doctors appear to discuss his condition but he’s unable to understand a word of their language Whispered conversations in the night are meaningless to him but it’s obvious a conspiracy among a few of the patients is developing Bryan doesn’t know who is a potential ally or who might be plotting against him Even his co pilot refuses to make eye contact with him B

    PDF posthd.pro ¶ Alfabethuset PDF Ê alfabethuset kindle, Alfabethuset PDF/EPUBThe nature of friendship war loyalty guilt and love told via a brilliant thrillerI must admit I was expecting a standard World War 2 escape story and the book does start that way However it rapidly descends into a dark place as the two escapees hide on a train reserved for wounded SS men where they end up in a mental hospital where they undergo various brutal treatments whilst trying to maintain their disguiseThis is not one for the faint hearted and the descriptions of the mental hospital sound scarily authentic as the two escapees struggle to maintain their sanity amidst the medications and treatments they are forced to take The second half takes place in 1972 and brings the story to a thrilling and taut denouementI won’t spoil the plot but if you persevere you are in for a darned good read

The story was so well developed and intricate; every minute detail fell perfectly into placeThe story is written in two parts Part one deals with Bryan and James’ escape from their pursuers and their stay in The Alphabet House What is The Alphabet House? You’ll have to read it yourself to find out The second part of the book is set twenty seven years after the war and deals with Bryan and James
