    1. Many readers don't know Heinrich Boll since his death, but these stories about Germans are universal. He was a remarkably gifted and compassionate writer whose characters faced moral dilemmas during the war and after. There are stories here that still make me cry.

    3. I'm only half through these collections of stories, but I'm already stunned, hurt for words.

He is clearly a subscriber to dogmatic Christianity and the Germans' (pre-ironic awareness) obsession with the sublime which to me is offensively bland and ineffective as a message of hop [...]

    5. I read the story, "Christmas not Just Once A Year." It is a melancholy story of the death of tradition and the true meaning of ritual. at The end only the potentially mentally unstable sunny and an old devout prelate can peacefully hold on. It speaks clearly to the commercialization and emptiness of the modern substance of the Christmas religious tradition.

    6. Interesante, a veces (seguido) es ácido en sus relatos, pero eso lo hace divertido si tienes el humor para verlo asi. Intenso, pero creo que se debe a su participación en la 2a Guerra mundial y a su incorporación al ejercito Nazi.
