The main character, Roth, is a German SS abrjl who speaks perfect French and is assigned to work for the Gestapo as a translator during interrogations of captured French Resistance fighters. Jul 31, Saleh MoonWalker rated it it was ok Shelves: The protagonist is described vaguely and just didn’t seem fleshed out-for lack of a better term. His escape from custody, his escape from pursuers at the Paris apartment, his rescue and recuperation aided by the concierge of the apartment building, and his trek to find Chantal were stretching credibility.
April in Paris by Michael Wallner
Other than the story itself, I did not like the graphic descriptions of torture. The two begin to meet and fall in love, before Roth has the courage to reveal his true identity, nor to discover Chantal’s. Pleaca in cautarea lu Chantal dar afla ca a fost omorata de germani si are un copil despre care familia ei ii spune ca nu il va da. But he is fascinated with Paris and decides to alleviate his boredom by going out into the city in civilian clothing, assuming a French name and history, and testing his unaccented French to absorb Paris life.

Dupa momente frumoase totul este distrus de un fel de atentat asupra unor soldati micheal la un local,Michael isi da seama de pxris faptul asta ii va da in vileag relatiile cu Chantal si cunostintele acesteia.
First published in German inbut as you might guess I read the English translation. Seguono un po’ di vicissitudini, salva Chantal da un’imboscata delle SS, si amano, salva il suo capo da un’imboscata della resistenza, viene imprigionato come traditore e torturato. He is able to escape but it doesn’t cure his infatuation even though wa,lner knows now that she is part of the French Resistance.
He sees and becomes infatuated with a young woman that works in a hair salon and moonlights as a nude model and dancer in a club. This wallnner was my Tucson reading when Nancy and I drove to Tucson last weekend to visit my sister.
Published April 3rd by Nan A. Audiobook performed by Paul Michael Roth is a young German army corporal, assigned to Gestapo headquarters in occupied Kichael so that he can use his flawless French as an interpreter during interrogations.
I suppose the message of this book could be about “being yourself”–but that doesn’t work out wallnner well for the Nazi corporal in this novel. The first part dragged a bit and wasn’t overly believable. Capisce di essere stato un burattino nelle mani di entrambi, e poi il libro va a rotoli.
Jun 21, Jennifer rated it liked it Shelves: Presents a suspenseful and dramatic story of impossible love between a German soldier and a French Resistance fighter in World War Two Paris. If he is caught by the French Resistance, he will be killed as a spy and if he is caught by his fellow Germans, he can be declared a traitorand killed. It’s very much a story of survival; psris one life may be betrayed by another, Roth is twenty-one, a German soldier in occupied Paris doing translations in the agril offices.
Dec 22, Elisabeth Lauren rated it really liked it Shelves: Not very challenging or thought provoking, but entertaining. Well paced and deftly written, it’s both a quick read and an exciting and mov This novella baril my Tucson reading when Nancy and I drove to Tucson last weekend to visit my sister.
Roth parla in prima persona, ma di lui, intimamente non sappiamo nulla. Roth, a twenty-one-year-old German soldier, has spent most of his time in occupied Paris working in the army’s back offices.
I do not speak, read, or understand French. The end of April in Paris felt appropriate, although I wanted a mihcael different one.

Abril En Paris / April in Paris: Michael Wallner: Books –
I can understand a crush, or even an infatuation with an ideal, but to fall in love? If this book were a movie, I would have had it play in the background while I played a videogame on my computer – that’s how interesting it is. April in Paris – Nevisande: Actually I listened to this on an audio recording.
This book has been on my list for a very long time and it was sweat, like smelling roses. Oct 01, Kat rated it it was amazing Shelves: Lists with This Book. I read it xbril years ago, and remember that I enjoyed it.
It portrays mixed identities as true identities and shows sides of people we don’t consider very often.
