Love and Hate: In Nazi GermanyLove and Hate: In Nazi Germany by Ryan Armstrong
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Ryan Armstrong. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

First of all, wow. Love And Hate is the kind of read that implants itself into your mind. The subject of Nazis is already something the mind cannot push away and forget. The era we are living in is a result of that time and all that pain that took place.

Love and Hate follows Hans Fischer. The memories he has of his childhood nearly shattered me. Its the kind of tragic memories you would never wish upon anyone. The kind of thoughts that keep you up at night. I definitely was rethinking my choice to listen to some chapters at night. I'm not saying I regret listening to the book, I just feel all of Hans' memories haunting me a little bit. That's just how the book hit me.

I am very impressed by the author's writing. I cannot imagine what Ryan went through to get this story out. His style is unlike any I have read before. Christopher Sherwood's narration was phenomenal. He brought out the proper emotion, to a degree that I felt it myself. And unforgettable story with an unforgettable voice.
