A masterpiece to rival any masterpiece of fiction. Much more than a work of history, it is a consummate work of art.

Review: Faust's Metropolis: A History of Berlin

User Review  - Joanne Gass - Goodreads

Since we were going to Berlin, I set out to read this tome before we left. It is very long and sometimes slow; still it is a very good book; the introduction is especially good, I think. Well researched, balanced, fair, scholarly. Just good. Read full review
