Free download ↠ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB å Robert Harris Fatherland Characters í 7 Alternate cover edition for ASIN 9788804374640Copertina alternativa dell'ASIN 9788804374640Nel 1964 Berlino è la capitale di un impero che si estende dal Reno agli Urali Il presidente degli Stati Uniti decide di recarsi in Germania per trattare con Hitler ormai. Fatherland by Robert Harris a 1992 novel of alternate history conceived as What might have happened if the Nazis won World War II Set in 1964 Berlin all the novel s characters are sharply drawn and passionately motivated in decidedly political directions The author has done his research and knows the Nazi world inside out sticking with a number of actual high ranking Nazis such as Reinhard Heydrich and Wilhelm Stuckart imaginatively projected into his fictional Germany Other Nazis in the novel are consistent with those who followed their F hrer back in the day The novelist s language is as crisp as a Nazi goosestep making for one fast paced page turnerAt the center of the action is Xavier March homicide investigator with the Nazi SS applying his detective skills to crack a case uickly spiraling into a complex political drama Along the way March teams up with young attractive American journalist Charlotte Maguire thus this Harris tale is not only alternate twentieth century history but a sexy international thriller That s all I intend to say about plot since my specific interest in reading this novel was to see how all the arts are faring in the land of Hitler and the Nazis thirty years after the war To this end below are some uotes along with my commentsThe image of the superior blonde blue eyed Ayran is still alive and kicking We read The press portrayed Reinhard Heydrich as Nietzsche s Superman sprung to life Heydrich in his pilot s uniform he had flown combat missions on the eastern front Heydrich in his fencing gear he had fenced for Germany in the Olympics Heydrich with his violin he could reduce audiences to tears by the pathos of his playing Hitler despised modern music actually any music other than ninteenth century classical usually saccharine operas such as The Merry Widow by Franz Leh r Most Nazis in 1964 Germany still share their seventy five year old F hrer s musical taste And alas there is mention of a group of young Englishmen from Liverpool with their pernicious Negroid wailings a clear example of modern degenerate music singing I Want To Hold Your HandA tour guide talks about the main buildings of the new Berlin to all the foreigners on a tour bus Construction of the Arch of Triumph was commenced in 1946 and work was completed in time for the Day of National Reawakening in 1950 Actually that appalling monolithic architecture Hitler envisioned including the 1000 ft Great Hall designed by Albert Speer a building that can hold 150000 participants is very much part of the novel The book s inner cover has a two page drawing of Hitler s main buildings including Great Hall Grand Plaza Hitler Palace and the 400 ft Arch of TriumphOther than a slight reference to the subversive novels of such writers as G nter Grass there isn t that much mention of literature and for good reason this is a tightly controlled police state similar to Stalinist Russia Any novels or stories that do not adhere to the official party line are deemed subversive perverted the products of sick minds Such was the language used by the Nazis when they staged their infamous exhibit of Degenerate Art in 1937When main character March enters the office of a leader of the Gestapo he observes On the walls were prints of Thorak s sculptures herculean figures with gargantuan torsos rolled boulders up steep hills in celebration of the building of the Autobahnen The immensity of Thorak s statuary was a whispered joke Ah the aesthetics of the Nazis is showing some cracks at the foundation Thorak was a prime Nazi sculptor one of Hitler s very favorites However his Nazi versions of cartoon superheroes left many Germans cold back in the 1930s by the 1960s even the Germans in Harris novel could see the silliness of such bloated muscle bound monstrositiesAnd March views the paintings on another wall Schmutzler s Farm Girls Returning from the Fields Padua s The F hrer Speaks ghastly orthodox muck How about that even a no nonsense action oriented SS detective judges the official Nazi art as orthodox muck The German Hall of Art right across the street from the exhibit of Degenerate Art featuring such moderns as Marc Nolde Kandinsky Chagall Grozz exhibited what Hitler decreed as acceptable art In the 1930s many art critics judged this Nazi art as at best mediocre and by the 1960s a clearer vision has reached the man and SS officer in the street all that realist art that Hitler loves is so much schmaltzy crapToward the end of the novel March and Charlotte Maguire enter an empty elementary school where March makes the observation Childish paintings decorated the walls blue meadows green skies clouds of sulfur yellow Children s art was perilously close to degenerate art such perversity would have to be knocked out of them The author did his homework Hitler an aspiring artist himself as young man so much will so little talent loathed the expressionists painting grass that was not green skies that were not blue clouds that were not white he simply could not enter the imaginative world of a true artist and he would become violent when someone suggested he had provincial limited tastesThis is a fascinating novel on a number of levels I focused on the arts since this is one of my main interests and as Frederic Spotts demonstrated in his well researched Hitler and the Power of Aesthetics Hitler valued art as the ultimate end of his world vision In Harris 1964 alternative history his vision proved to be narrow lackluster the product of a totalitarian police state Thank goodness a 1964 Nazi Germany never became a reality

Summary Fatherland

Free download ↠ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB å Robert Harris Fatherland Characters í 7 Settantacinuenne e sempre al comando Alla vigilia dell'incontro un gerarca nazista muore misteriosamente Dalle indagini sul caso affidate a Xavier March brillante investigatore berlinese emerge il vivido ritratto di una società corrotta e scontenta di un poter. Sometimes it seems like every Tom Phillip K Dick and Harry Turtledove wrote books that asked what would have happened if Hitler won the war It s 1964 and Germany is preparing to celebrate Hitler s 75th birthday Police detective Xavier March is called in when a body is pulled out of a river and he soon discovers that the dead man was a prominent member of the Nazi party March s investigation eventually leads him to secrets going back to the war that his government is desperate to keep buriedSo yes this is another book about the most asked uestion in alternate history What if the Nazis won World War II But by framing this as mystery thriller Robert Harris has taken a different approach to it by using March as tour guide of a victorious Germany We eventually have the bigger picture of what the rest of the world is like and there are some interesting elements like the US did fight and defeat Japan yet Europe is Nazi controlled so that America and Germany have had an extended Cold WarWhile the details of the world are well done this is really of a story about what life would be like in this society It s all well ordered prosperity on the surface but the police state nature of it all lurks just below the surface with the average citizen s paranoia encouraged by the government to keep them fearful and obedientMarch is an interesting character in this as a man who did his part in the war on board a U boat but he doesn t much like the SS uniform he wears now He reminded me a lot of the series by Martin Cruz Smith about Russian detective Arkady Renko Like Renko March is a basically good man who knows he s working for a bad system but he s too cynical to think of trying to change it Instead he just tries to find what justice he can even as he still has too much integrity to entirely go along with the program which is something that the true believers can sense and hateThis all sounds like a 4 or 5 star book especially in the capable hands of Robert Harris but unfortunately it s one of those where I liked the idea of it than the actual finished product This alternate world is intriguing and well thought out and March is an interesting lead character but the actual plot just seems kind of flat and obvious You can tell much of what s coming for a good long while so there s not much suspense or shock to it

Can you read a book too many times Well I have to admit that this is the seventh time I ve read Fatherland I still thinks it s as fresh as when I first read it over twenty years ago The story just seems to grip me from first page to last Harris seamlessly blends fact fiction as his thriller takes us through Berlin in 1964 in the week leading up to Adolf Hitler s 75th birthday This alternative history is so believable without being cliched the characters are as much of a focus as the setting I urge anyone to read this novel who has not done so already However if lack of time prevents you doing this there is also an excellent audio version read by a Werner Klemperer a very good full cast BBC audio version a gripping TV movie starring the ever dependable Rutger Hauer I wonder if there s a format I ve not experienced this on
