Reviews - What do customers think about Feeling Berlin?
Transports you Mar 8, 2006
I have visited Berlin twice, in two very different circumstances. The first time was the summer I turned 16 and I spent a month in Germany, two weeks of it living in Berlin. The second time was on the tail end of an 11-day trip across Central Europe. It was a one-day visit on Good Friday. Very different experiences, but this book brought me back to them both. As it says in the inside cover, "It's a longing for not only the Kurfürstendamnn but for the city as a whole with all its absurdities, which after the fall of the Wall and reunification flourish as never before." Few who love Berlin can describe they feeling they have for the city, but this book portrays it. It's the people, the streets, the parks, the strangeness, the looks on the faces of Berliners that does it for us. You will find all that in this amazing book. It's not a travel guide, although it does have some of the landmarks portrayed, but in unique, artistic form. If you're like me and live for Berlin between visits, this book will help ease the yearning to feel Berlin.
