“Ben Elton’s most personal novel to date, Two Brothers transports the reader to the time of history’s darkest hour.“
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
I’m a big fan of Ben Elton and adore his writing style. I also love stories set during the Nazi period so when I saw Two Brothers in the charity shop I was thrilled.
Two Brothers starts with the birth of twins (sort of) into a Jewish family in Germany, on February 24th 1920, but in a twist of fate the Nazi party is also born on the same day.
It’s the perfect backdrop for a Holocaust novel, and if you like reading about the history of this era, you’ll be pleased to know that Two Brothers is well researched and all historical incidence are correct.
