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

Disclaimer ARC via Netgalley Sometimes plots and ideas don’t just work for some readers This is one of those books for me The Alphabet House would make an excellent movie but as a book it doesn’t uite fly The story starts with two English fliers in World War II They get shot down and eventually after a series of events that do and don’t work find themselves in the Alphabet House a hospital for Nazi officers The two Brits Bryant and James never really seem to come alive as individuals They almost become interchangeable and it is difficult to pin down their individual characters if any There are some supporting characters but they are by and large interchangeable The villains are the traditional Nazi villains The pacing at points seems off and the character of Lauren just doesn’t work on many levels It’s not a bad book and in many ways it is a good adventure story It would make a good screenplay because a film version would hide the lack of characterization

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. The first thing I have to say is that this must have been extremely well researched the detail is magnificent horrifying and yet strangely fascinating Set in two parts the first following two friends trying to evade capture who end up in a mental institution in Germay the second portion of the novel deals with the fallout many years laterI thought this was cleverly done – the first half is fairly slow moving allowing the story to unfold at a pace that truly allows you to take in what these two friends are going through – descriptively speaking it is very disturbing but absolutely compelling you can’t look away The second half is faster moving also difficult to review properly without spoilers but for me it made a tale of two halves if you like – and the ending was unexpectedVery different from the “Department ” series but still with the author’s uniue style – this 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 can see that it will not be for everyone but I found it to be an excellent and moving story haunting and evocative with some truly edge of the seat momentsOverall a very good read indeedHappy Reading Folks
