I am a religious woman I pray every day for my little children doomed to die she had said turning around and addressing Mrs Helianos I pray for them to die fasterWestcott s writing is stark urgent and brutal The inhumanity of the circumstance of the novel the Nazi occupation of Greece is reflected in his economy of languageIt is true that in all our human attachments based on nothing but blood relationship there are strict limitations inherent disappointmentsI found myself underlining passages on almost every other page a sentence construction or articulated consideration that I wanted to return to and marvel over again and againFor he felt that it was a great decision this forgiveness not at all forced or against his will but simply against his every instinct It is a grave decision when you take the good will for the deed when you yield to the mistaken inhuman brain or the harmful tongue because there is a kind heart behind it accepting things that you hate with nothing to make them acceptable except that riddle of the spirit which has prompted them contenting yourself with good intentions whether they are according to your mortality or not whether they are to your advantage or notThere is so much within an Apartment in Athens that is stirring It is a uiet horror story claustrophobic doomed devastating Yet at the same time Westcott has imbued his tale with a fearless optimism that carries the reader through the foreboding to each fresh injury to each clear and striking observationI do not suppose that the Americans are indifferent to their fate and danger I think

they see that this is not possible then they lose hope altogether They give it all up as a bad job and yield to their cynicism and fatalism It is what happened after the other war What on earth do

Read Apartment in Athens Apartment in Athens Read & Download Ò E-book, or Kindle E-pub Reek couple in Nazi occupied Athens who are forced to share their uarters with a German. Whilst this story was extremely well written and I was intrigued by the premise of the novel I have to say that overall it wasn t an enjoyable read There was an overpowering feel of opression and claustrophobia within this story without any uplifting moments to alleviate the unrelenting grimness I found it very difficult to appreciate the major characters here because I didn t appreciate them and I found it difficult empathise with themWhat was most interesting to this reader was the insight into the German psyche Whilst I could appreciate the author s skill in presenting the story I would find it difficult to recommend with any euanimity
