Description

Hans Fallada wrote this stunning novel in only 24 days-just after being released from a Nazi insane asylum. Based on a true story, Every Man Dies Alone tells of a German couple who try to start an uprising by distributing anti-fascist postcards during WWII. But their dream ultimately proves perilous under the tyranny that dominates every corner of Hitler's Germany.

Professional reviews

"The story takes place in a tenement in 1941 Berlin. Residents of all stripes live there in fear of the Gestapo and denunciation by their neighbors. Did Frau Rosenthal jump from her third-floor window, or was she defenestrated by the police? Does someone in the building write and distribute the anti-Nazi postcards saying things like "Hitler killed my son"? George Guidall narrates the novel with a style that gives nuances of implied meaning to every phrase. Listeners can detect the characters' frequent moments of paranoia and suspicion in Guidall's voice. To each resident of the building, he gives a slightly different manner of speaking. Although translated into English, none of the characters, all German, have a foreign accent. J.A.H. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
