Spoiler Free Review

The Berlin Girl reveals the life of Georgina “Georgie” Young as she navigates her life as a journalist amidst the Nazi occupation in Berlin during World War II.

Georgie Young and fellow Londoner, Max Spendor are two journalists that are posted in Berlin in the middle of World War II, surrounded by the highest of Nazi’s and spies and betrayals. Through the adventures of Georgie and Max getting material for the news of Berlin, we slowly uncover the truths behind Nazi’s and Hitler’s reign.

I rated The Berlin Girl five stars, absolutely loving the way this book made me feel intrigued and pulled me in continuously. I felt as if I were in the story as well, alongside Georgie and Max as they discovered what was really happening to the Jewish people that resided in Germany and their discovery of the people that they thought they knew well.

I loved the way that even though Georgie and Max both came from London and would most likely have to work with each other in Berlin, they didn’t immediately become friends, it had taken them time to discover the truths about each other before they finally opened up to each other more about themselves personally and about work. They both care deeply about spreading the word about what is happening in Germany and that hopefully, through the articles that they write, people can realize the brutal occurrences that were happening in Berlin where they were.

They way they helped multiple people throughout the book and witnessed so many savage beatings toward the Jewish residents of Berlin made the story more intense because while you read it, you are expecting all these actions yet when you reach it, you feel completely shocked by the events.

I thoroughly enjoyed the development of Georgie as she became more determined to prove that she can be a good journalist while also being a woman. The difficulties she had to endure while being a female journalist in Berlin in order to get information for the articles she had to write were something that females around the world had to go through but the way Georgie fought through it and was set on getting her information and leads to write the best article showed the way she powered through the stereotypes of a female worker.

Georgie was a powerful main character and I loved the way Max, while in the beginning was not so understanding of Georgie being a female journalist, came to terms with her power and future influence of the way she worked. Both of them worked well together and slowly became comfortable with each other and I loved their developments as characters and towards each other. Their relationship shined throughout this book and I loved that while they cared for each other deeply, they were understanding toward each other.

I wholly enjoyed reading The Berlin Girl, all the detail behind the history and behind each character was so well developed and created. The thoughtful descriptions and aspects throughout this book made it more intense and I enjoyed learning more about World War II and the Nazi occupation and the toll it took on history.

Thank you to NetGalley for providing me an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
