Stasiland by Anna Funder is…

…one of the best books I have ever read, hands down. I was touched by the alien but human stories in this book and it still makes me shudder to think that I was a child when the Berlin Wall was still up. I simply find the treatment that some of these people received in East Germany hard to swallow, as it is incredulous that humans can treat other humans in this way. This book, however, is an amazing read, with Anna Funder providing a warm, sympathetic approach to the people she meets. A definite recommend.
