I am just re-reading the book, which I bought a couple of years ago as part of my research in the Holocaust, aiming to complete a PhD.
It is written in a scholarly style but is not stilted or difficult to read. There are many touches of irony and even personal feelings, which some have criticized in historical writing; I find this evidence of the author's own experience moving and justified.
I would say that this is a brilliant book, superbly written, telling the almost unbelievable story of the Holocaust in Holland.
