I loved listening to Helen Garner reflect on the some of the episodes and small moments in her life. Astute observations that really resonated with me. I love the way she writes, and having Garner, herself narrating meant that I always read it it in the way she intended. (Hooray for the authors who narrate their own work!!!)

Has Alone in Berlin put you off other books in this genre?

I am interested in WW2 stories, but not this one. This just did not ring true to me.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Alone in Berlin?

There were so many superfluous conversations, or arguments that went to and fro with disagreement. Way too long for the story that it was.

Any additional comments?

There was no real plot, just a collection of insignificant stories.
