     I’ve never read a book that more starkly highlighted for me how thankful the good people of the world should be that the allies won World War II. While my final rating was a somewhat subdued 3 stars, there are parts of this story that I found extremely compelling. BACKSTORY/ALTERNATIVE HISTORY:Welcome to a very dark future It's 1964, and all of Germany is preparing to celebrate Adolf Shitler’s 75th birthday. As part of this national event, the President of the United States, Joseph P. Ke [...]

    Fatherland, by Robert Harris, a 1992 novel of alternate history conceived as: "What might have happened if the Nazis won World War II?" Set in 1964 Berlin, all the novel's characters are sharply drawn and passionately motivated in decidedly political directions. The author has done his research and knows the Nazi world inside out, sticking with a number of actual high-ranking Nazis such as Reinhard Heydrich and Wilhelm Stuckart imaginatively projected into his fictional Germany. Other Nazis in t [...]

    “What do you do,’ he said, ‘if you devote your life to discovering criminals, and it gradually occurs to you that the real criminals are the people you work for? Fartherland offers a dismaying vision of what could have been. If the Nazis had won world war two, if their power had continued to spread, they would have owned half the world perhaps even all of it if they conquered at the speed they demonstrated in the 1930s. Their momentum was near unbelievable. The world would be in a terrible [...]

    I am sure it's a question that's been pondered on by countless many, just what if Hitler had really won the war? or even worse taken over the planet. Would we be in a state of total autocracy?, would Companies like and Microsoft be run by the Third Reich?, would the gestapo be snooping on emails?. Or the flip side to that, what if no war at all?, what if Hitler, Himmler, Bormann and Goebbels were pacifist jazz musicians and started a quartet?, what if Mr and Mrs Hitler senior moved to the south [...]

    It is the 1960’s in Berlin. American President and Nazi sympathizer Joseph Kennedy has at long last agreed to meet with the Fuehrer. Fatherland presents an alternate history in which Germany won WW II, without taking out China or the United States. A Berlin detective is called to investigate a murder, sees connections among various disappearances and follows them despite interference from his superiors. He encounters a young American journalist who turns out to be key to the whole caper. What [...]

    Sometimes it seems like every Tom, Phillip K. Dick, and Harry Turtledove wrote books that asked what would have happened if Hitler won the war. It’s 1964 and Germany is preparing to celebrate Hitler’s 75th birthday. Police detective Xavier March is called in when a body is pulled out of a river, and he soon discovers that the dead man was a prominent member of the Nazi party. March’s investigation eventually leads him to secrets going back to the war that his government is desperate to kee [...]

    A murder in 1960s Nazi Germany draws one Berlin detective into a greater mystery than he could have ever imagined. Or could he?The great thing aboutFatherland is thatRobert Harris doesn't try to do too much with the counterfactual history. It's definitely there, of course, but the reader discovers it naturally as (fictional) historical details come up in the flow of the novel. There is no heavy-handed explanation of how this alternate history diverged from the history we know, no listing of all [...]

    This book had been on my radar for quite some time and I finally got it from my library. It was a very enjoying read indeed.The book presents an anternate history scenario where Hitler has won the Second World War and Eastern Europe has been conquered by the Nazis. The nations of Western Europe has been forced into a trading block and the German currency is accepeted all over continental Europe.Hitler's birthday is approaching and people are getting ready to celebrate. A body has been discovered [...]

    Can you read a book too many times ? Well, I have to admit that this is the seventh time I've read Fatherland & I still thinks it's as fresh as when I first read it over twenty years ago. The story just seems to grip me from first page to last. Harris seamlessly blends fact & fiction as his thriller takes us through Berlin in 1964 in the week leading up to Adolf Hitler's 75th birthday. This alternative history is so believable without being cliched & the characters are as much of a f [...]

    What if Hitler had won?Author Robert Harris presents a world where Germany came out on top following WWII. Hitler remains as head of Germany’s Western European empire with several of his key associates like Joseph Goebbels and Reinhard Heydrich in positions of power.Following Germany’s discovery of the cracking of the Enigma Code, the Reich cruised to victory over its enemies in Europe. The United States’ victory over Japan still ended with the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but it was [...]

    Fatherland takes a well worn subject, what if Nazi Germany had been successful in WWII, and takes an unusual avenue to explore it. Unlike other books on the subject Fatherland does not concern itself with the big military picture and it doesn't dally in the political decisions that changed history. It takes the changes as a given and explores this strange and horrifying world through the eyes of a simple police officer trying to solve a crime. It infuses a 1960's Nazi dominated Europe with all t [...]

    Έχοντας διαβάσει ήδη 2 βιβλία του Robert Harris, ήρθε κ η σειρά του Fatherland, ενός βιβλίου που συνδυάζει την εναλλακτική ιστορία με το αστυνομικό μυθιστόρημα με ένα ιδιαιτέρως απολαυστικό τρόπο. Η Γερμανία έχει νικήσει στο Β'ΠΠ κι έχει εγείρει μνημεία ή κατασκεύασε λεωφόρους μεγαλύτ [...]

    I chanced upon this book after reading Stephen's wonderfulreview while here on . Indeed, the blurb got me so hooked, that for the next four months I tried to hunt it down. But after futile visits to ALL the city bookstores with my boyfriend, who is also an avid reader, I finally gave up! Apparently, it was out of circulation. And right when I thought I would never be able lay my hands on it, I found a copy on sale on the Internet. A brand new 20th anniversary edition that too. So, I seized my ch [...]

    الرواية الأولى للصحافي السياسي البريطاني روبرت هاريس، وهي الرواية التي جلبت له الشهرة والكثير من المال (باعت ٣ ملايين نسخة) وهي أيضا الرواية الرائدة في فن روائي جديد نسبيا وهو "رواية التاريخ البديل". أي آنها تحاول إعادة سرد وحبك أحداث التاريخ المنتهية التي حصلت بطريقة ومسار [...]

    Robert Harris' brilliantly thrilling and thought-provoking debut novel - set in a post WWII (1960's) alternative Germany; one where Nazi Germany had previously won the war. An excellent thriller set against a wonderfully imagined and evoked backdrop of a world that so very easily might have been The first of many excellent thrillers from the pen of Robert Harris, but this is where it all started.Not to be missed.

    As Hitler's 75th birthday approaches the murder of a man who has hidden ties to the top of the party is discovered. Detective Xavier March must now walk a tightrope over the chasm of state secrets as the Gestapo tries to cut the ropehaving him fall may be the zugzwang the state wants to play.

    The man in the high castle নামের TV series দেখে এর নেপথ্যের শিরোনাম বইটি পড়ার ইচ্ছা জাগে। এই বইটিও সাথে নামাই।Alternative history জনরাটা খুব রোমাঞ্চকর।ধরুন ইতিহাসের কোন বড় ঘটনা এখনকার মত না হয়ে যদি ভিন্নরকম হতো,তবে কেমন হতো [...]

    Robert Harris never made me fall in love like this again.There are many books out there set in the universe of an Axis victory, but few capture its atmosphere so well: the suffocating conformism that indoctrinates the post-war generation, the casual cruelty of the regime's Praetorians, the ubiquitous double faces and hidden blemishes of the fanatics. When March travels to Switzerland "from one prison into another" he pretty much sums up the mental state of the dissident in any dictatorship.

    Fatherland by Robert Harris, is a book of alternate history set in 1964 Germany. This is a Germany where the Nazi's won WWII, took large swathes of territory, reorganized Europe in their own image, and continue to fight Russian partisans in the Ural mountains. The book follows a German Kripo, Xavier March, who is called to inspect a dead body in a river in Berlin. The body is of one Josef Buhler, who was a member an administrator in the General Government region in WWII. Buhler is a top Nazi pol [...]

    Again, as in the case ofSimple Genius, this is the reason I don’t read more fiction. Even the historical fiction nature of the book, (Germany wins WWII, it’s a different world, yada, yada, yada—you can read more of the storyline in the reviews others have written) couldn’t save it for me.I thought that both this book andSimple Genius had excellent premises but the stories failed to draw me in like a goodDean Koontz book. Oh, and I am very literal. The book ends sort of like the movie Fie [...]

    La premisa es inquietante. Berlin. Estamos en 1964. Alemania es la gran vencedora de la Segunda Guerra Mundial. La causa: Al mismo tiempo que EEUU lanzaba una bomba atómica contra Japón, los alemanes hacían lo propio contra Nueva York. Sólo el frente ruso inquieta todavía, que además se ha convertido en aliado de los americanos. Tanto Churchill como Isabel II se encuentran en el exilio. Con este panorama, Alemania se apresta a celebrar el 75 aniversario de Hitler, que sigue vivo y coleando [...]

    Το Fatherland, το πρώτο βιβλίο του Ρόμπερτ Χάρις που διαβάζω και ένα από τα πιο πολυδιαβασμένα έργα του, συνδυάζει το αστυνομικό θρίλερ με την εναλλακτική ιστορία, με το τελικό αποτέλεσμα να είναι άκρως συναρπαστικό και απολαυστικό. Ειλικρινά δεν κατάλαβα πότε το τελείωσα το βι [...]

    Κατ' αρχάς, οφείλω να ομολογήσω ότι τα εναλλακτικά σύμπαντα είναι η αδυναμία μου, οπότε είμαι προκατειλημμένη υπέρ του βιβλίου. Αλλά νομίζω ότι και αντικειμενικά πρόκειται για μια άκρως πιστευτή μυθοπλασία ενός κόσμου στον οποίο η Γερμανία κέρδισε στον Β' Παγκόσμιο Πόλεμο, [...]

    I am, and probably always will be, a sucker for alternate history. So a "What if the Germans hadn't lost WWII?" is right up my alley. The key point is that the Holocaust was never discovered or proven, because the Allies did not make it over from either east or west. What was different about history that this should be the case is never explained in the book, and it is not important.Within this idea, it is simply a detective story. The bitter old detective gets assigned to a case he wasn't even [...]

    Ho riletto questo libro dopo quasi un quarto di secolo dalla mia prima volta; avevo dimenticato quanto fosse bello e, in un certo senso, anche istruttivo. La lettura, anzi rilettura, è stata talmente piacevole che, nonostante le sue quasi 400 pagine, è "andato giù" tutto d'un fiato e nel corso di un'intera notte. Si tratta di un giallo fantapolitico/fantastorico (e chi segue le mie recensioni sa che è proprio il mio genere preferito) ambientato in una Germania mai esistita ma che avrebbe cer [...]

    I really enjoyed reading this book! The premise is both original and intriguing; and once I started reading, I couldn't put the book down! Robert Harris mixes fictional and historical characters, which adds a lot to the reality of the plot. The book is very well-written and the author keeps things going at a brisk pace so the reader never gets bored.I just found out "Fatherland" had been made into a TV movie in 1994 (with an Emmy nomination for lead Rutger Hauer and an Emmy win for Miranda Richa [...]

    I enjoy reading books where history has been tinkered with, and we're presented an alternative reality. In Fatherland the Nazis won the war. However the book does not concern itself with the military consequences or the political mayhem that might follow such a victory, instead Fatherland is about a police officer, simply trying to solve a murder. In the end it's a typical crime thriller. Maybe a bit slow in the beginning but it definitely picks up towards the end. Personally I would have liked [...]

    Now its very rare that I write negative thoughts on a book, but this is one of those posts, if you don't like reading that type of post then please take warning.Fatherland is our school bookgroups next read - we're not a successful bookgroup at the moment being on our third book and never having had a meeting to discuss a book as yet. As soon as this book was decided on I was wary, the novel is an imagining of what the world would be like if Hitler had won the war. I read a book on exactly the s [...]

    מעטים הם המותחנים שהצליחו לזעזע אותי ולטלטל אותי כל כך כמו הספר "ארץ אבות".ארץ אבות הוא מותחן מהזאנר המכונה היסטוריה חילופית. עניינה של ההיסטוריה חילופית בלהציג מה היה קורה אם העבר היה ממשיך להווה. במקרה הזה, מה היה קורה לו גרמניה הנאצית היתה מנצחת ומשתלטת על אירופה.ברלין, 1964, [...]

    "However this war may end, we have won the war against you; none of you will be left to bear witness, but even if someone were to survive, the world would not believe him. There will perhaps be suspicions, discusssions, research by historians, but there will be no certainties, because we will destroy the evidence with you. And even if some proof should remain and some of you survive, people will say that the events you describe are too monstrous to be believed: they will say that they are the ex [...]
