Berlin Tunnel, The by Roger Liles 2.5 of 5 stars.
Reviewed in the United States on December 26, 2018
There are several things I did not like about this book. It is billed as a Cold War thriller, but it is as much a romance story as it is about Cold War Berlin. While the romantic aspect does fit in with the overall story, there is just too much of it, so much so that it competes with the main Cold War plot. At times I felt like I was reading a romance novel. It lacks excitement and is not suspenseful; this is not what I would consider a thriller. It’s also too long and at times reads more like a diary and a history lesson than a novel. 2.5/5 stars
