Robert Harris is best known for his novel Fatherland which offers an alternative history of WWII where Adolph Hitler prevails It was a good book as was Enigma but sadly what Harris offers up here is nothing like his previous work In the Acknowledgments Harris admits to a fascination with the Munich Agreement he s had for over 30 years He even explains he made a BBC TV documentary for the 50th anniversary of the conference In Munich readers are presented with a rather pedantic retelling of the events leading up to one of the 20th century s greatest diplomatic failures It s September 1938 and the Nazi s are poised to invade Czechoslovakia while British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain is desperate to prevent another world war The story unfolds through the eyes of two characters private secretary to the PM Hugh Legat and his old college chum Paul von Hartmann who is now a staffer in the German Foreign Office The story is chock full of real life historical figures not so artfully blended with our fictitious bureaucrats Unfortunately it is all so painfully dull that it forced me to do something I rarely do which is to uit reading after a bit than a third of it Harris doesn t give us anything new we know how it all ends with Chamberlain s peace in our time misstatement There s no suspense no action no excitement just a lot of translating messages and administrative tedium The most danger our protagonists face is a paper cut or maybe a jammed stapler In one scene Legat is driving to a meeting with Chamberlain making some corrections to a speech and Legat notes that it s hard to write in a moving vehicleno kidding The number of 5 and 4 star reviews are surprising how anyone could call this book a thriller is beyond me I skimmed the remaining 200 or so pages and believe me nothing really happens I usually enjoy historical fiction especially set in the WWII period but Munich failed to engage me As I m getting older life s too short to waste on reading uninteresting books

The events of Munich are well known and I DID enjoy the presentation of the much maligned British PM s point of view as he desperately looked for peace But I agree with other reviewersan appendix listing all the characters would have been helpful There was too much description as to stairways and cloakrooms and bathrooms that was unnecessarily detailed and confusing The main characters were cardboard cutoutsI like Harris s earlier books about GermanyFatherland and Enigma stand out as terrific readsThis reads like a fictionalized docu dramanot fiction The main characters STORIES should have been in the forefront with Munich in the background It played out the other way to the detriment of the book

By Robert Harris high standards this is a very poor effort I ve read all of his books and this is the worst of the lot The characters are two dimensional Plot devices are feeble and contrived Tension levels are very low It feels rushed and under written Disappointed I used to really look forward to a new Harris novel being published Dictator was weaker than its predecessors Conclave was not great Munich worst of all A real shame

    PDF or EBOOK (Munich* (181 POCHE)) I only got through Munich by a combination of dogged determination and a lifelong dislike of not finishing a book. By the time my Kindle was showing 60% read I was bored and had lost interest in the characters and the story, such as it is. Everybody with a passing interest in 20th century history knows what happened at Munich and how things e

    PDF or EBOOK (Munich* (181 POCHE)) This was a very good book. Although I knew the “basic” story of the Munich Agreement this takes you right to the heart of the events in September 1938. Of course a few of the characters are fiction. But many are the real people who were involved in the meeting — although, of course, some of their actions and conversations are doubtless sprinkled with fiction for the good of the story. It is a brilliant read. And I will be reading by
