  1. "In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler's Berlin," by Erik Larson, does not present any facts that were heretofore unknown to any reader like myself, who has read extensively about the 1930's, but it does help to explain these events and hence is very valuable. To the casual reader wanting to read a good tale, thanks to the story-telling ability of Larson, "In the Garden of Beasts" is as engrossing and compelling as any adventure story on today's fiction book lists. It is a proverbial page turner.
