Two WWII British pilots are trapped behind enemy lines in Nazi Germany This is the story of their desperate attempts of survival but can they survive with their lives and their sanityThe Alphabet House is one of those stories where I really have to ask myself where do authors get these ideas The story was so well developed and intricate; every minute detail fell perfectly into placeThe story is written in two parts Part one deals with Bryan and James’ escape from their pursuers and their stay in The Alphabet House What is The Alphabet House You’ll have to read it yourself to find out The second part of the book is set twenty seven years after the war and deals with Bryan and James getting beyond the scars left by The Alphabet House Each part is a fantastic exciting story on its own; the two together create an amazing unimaginable adventure This was a book that I hated to put downJames and Bryan were incredibly well developed characters The author brought me well into the depths of each of their minds and he would switch points of view from one to the other And the bad guys well they are some of the sickest monsters that I have ever read about What makes them so horrible is that their characteristics are pulled straight from realityWould I recommend The Alphabet House AbsolutelyI received a copy of the book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

review Alfabethuset

AlfabethusetUted if captured With an enemy patrol in pursuit they manage to jump aboard a train reserved for senior SS soldiers wounded on the eastern front In a moment of desperation they throw two patients off the train and take their places hoping they can escape later But their act is too convincing and they end up in the Alphabet House a mental hospital located far behind enemy lines where German doctors subject their patients to daily rounds of shock treatments and experiment. While I received this from Netgalley a VERY long time ago in exchange for an honest review I ended up listening to this book on Audible4 starsThis is a tale of two booksThe first half of is mind numbingly monotonous and downright boring almost to the point of putting it on the DNF shelf The second part is exceedingly suspenseful complete with violent confrontations a touch of romance and a tale of revenge on a trio of monstrous villains Adler Olsen touches on the universal themes of the horrors of war man's inhumanity to man the corrosiveness of guilt and the cleansing nature of forgiveness This book was written in 1997 and it is easy to see that Adler Olsen hadn’t yet developed the writing skills he displays in his Department series Even still this is a worthwhile readThe Alphabet House is first set during World War II Two Englishmen James Teasdale and Bryan Young bail out when their plane is shot down over Germany during a reconnaissance mission In desperation they assume the identities of shell shocked German SS officers Assuming their roles too well they are confined to a mental hospital behind enemy lines How long will it take for their captors to realize that James and Bryan are imposters What effect will the pills and shock treatments that the doctors administer to their patients have on the British soldiers' minds Can they escape from this hellhole The situation spirals out of control when three fellow inmates viciously turn on James and BryanThe second half is also set in Germany almost 30 years later during the 1972 Munich Olympics In the second half the story really comes alive as the friends deal with the fallout of their imprisonmentThis book was obviously extremely well researched the detail is magnificent horrifying and yet strangely fascinating The pacing and layout were cleverly done – the first half is slow moving and plodding allowing the story to unfold at a pace that allows the reader to almost experience what these two friends are going through It’s very disturbing but absolutely compelling; you simply can’t look away The second half is much faster paced and I’m not going to say anything for fear of giving away the surprising events It did ramp up significantly to the completely unexpected endingThis is not a war story as much as it is a story of friendship under extreme circumstances character driven throughout often violent but always engaging and thought provoking I found it to be an excellent moving story haunting and evocative with some great edge of the seat momentsOverall a very good read
