    1. People can go on telling themselves things like Think before you speak or You don t believe that yourself or Forget it But they can also say, Oh, what lovely flowers or Are you a phone freak or something or Suit yourself, or This record makes me feel so happy Wonderful Words are delightful little gifts we exchange like the Easter eggs we paint and hide for others to find and enjoy I d forgotten that, but you reminded me of it Clever and witty, Heroes Like Us is a simply hilarious story A narrato [...]


    2. Die deutsche Geschichte muss umgeschrieben werden Klaus Uhltzscht war es, der die Berliner Mauer zum Einsturz gebracht hat Dabei ist Klaus eigentlich ein Versager par exellence Als Sohn eines Stasi Spitzels und einer Hygieneinspektorin w chst er zwischen Jogginghosen und Dr Schnabels Aufkl rungsbuch auf, bleibt im Sportunterricht auf ewig ein Flachschwimmer Auch sein gro er Traum, als Topagent bei der Stasi zu arbeiten, erf llt sich leider nicht Daf r aber wird er, der inzwischen eine Perversion [...]


    3. The wittiest, dirtiest, and most original retelling of the collapse of East Germany The only thing slowing my progress through it is the cover of my edition, a close up photograph of a sculpture s genitalia, which has made me a little too embarrassed to break it out on the subway For the most part I prefer strangers on the train not think I might be reading German pornography in public, but perhaps I am just being paranoid.


    4. The premise of this book is a good idea lusty teenager causes fall of berlin wall and it has some funny moments, but it did not really grab my attention I felt that the plot was rushed and the ending was poor.worth a read but nothing special



    5. Interesting, but I liked the other book I read from him But the way he writes about East Berlin and the Stasi is definitely new and fresh to me.


    6. Sulfurea e fantastica pseudo autobiografia di uno sgangherato Paperino della DDR, oscillante fra ossessioni sessuali alla Alexander Portnoy e nostalgie crepuscolari alla Zeno Cosini Eppure, fra le pieghe psichiche autodenigratorie di questo fantasioso uomo del sottosuolo, si capisce molto di quel teatrino dell assurdo che fu neppure troppi anni fa vivere in una citt con un muro in mezzo Consigliatissima questa intervista della Stampa a Brussig, che pare sia molto amato anche dalla Merkel sul cui [...]



    7. Klaus Uhlzscht the latter surname carries the seeds of disaster You need only look at that poor, lonely vowel laboring under the weight of all those consonants p34 is responsible for the fall of the Berlin Wall It all has to do with his genitalia, as does so much else in this humorous coming of age novel Klaus has great difficulty liberating himself from his overbearing mother and mysterious but powerful father In fact, he is powerless to resist either of his parents, and it is through his fathe [...]


    8. I had to read this book for one of my German literature classes and I expected to hate it because the blurb sounded so ridiculous But, reading the first few chapters, I was very pleasantly surprised The protagonist and his problematic upbringing are very interesting and cleverly written But the story becomes and absurd as it goes on, and not exactly in an enjoyable way I was pretty annoyed by the last third of the book Overall it s still an interesting read, though, especially considering how [...]


    9. This book is about a young man whose penis brought down the Berlin Wall With a description like this, you d likely want to know how this happens There were times I could relate to the protagonist and was amused by him and his idiosyncratic family But I got bored several times because bits of this novel were either a tad too drawn out or tried too hard to be funny It could also simply be a case of my expectations when I picked up this book.


    10. It didn t leave me anything, pretty pointless book I was expecting a full DDR description but i just plain didn t like the book And the fact that he becomes a porn star at the end is complete bul sh.


    11. 8 10 An odd book this one Very funny in places but probably needed a bit editing as it did go on too long in my opinion.
