Love and Hate: In Nazi Germany is a romance between Hans and Lilo; it is also about a boy is supposed to be a Nazi and a Jewish girl. It is about searching for and believing in God, and it is mostly about the suffering that people endured during World War II. There are many twists, turns, and excitement throughout the story and I found myself sitting on the edge of my chair, holding my breath and hoping Hans would not be hurt, or worse, killed. Hans’ brother, Erich Beck, is one of the leaders in the Nazi regime and he is mean, ruthless, and enjoys doing harm to the Jews and anyone or anything that gets in his way, including his brother. Lilo is a young, beautiful, sweet Jewish girl who must escape the hatred of the day to survive. The journey that Hans and Lilo take trying to escape to Switzerland, and the end of the book surprise, will make you cry and make you feel true joy.

Love and Hate: In Nazi Germany is a book I will long remember. I was drawn in from the first word and never once did I lose interest. Ryan Armstrong has told the story about World War II in a way I have never before read and it was spellbinding and very real. I found the violence and sex to be appropriate and not at all offensive, but instead an integral part of the story. It is very hard to review this book and not tell you all of the events that happen in making it feel very real and very factual, but I believe you must read Love and Hate to truly understand it. I highly recommend putting Love and Hate on the very top of your reading list – it is very much an historical masterpiece.
