Based on Heinrich von Kleist's 1808 dramatic comedy. The audiobook is hilarious and highly recommended. ( )

I read this book in a German language class in Austria so I missed some of the details because my German was not on par with my English. At the same time I was able to understand a lot of the between-the-lines analogies and allusions to Christianity that the author weaved into the story. It's definitely a thinking book but I highly recommend both for its insight-fulness and outright humor. I've actually seen this performed as a play, which is what the author originally intended, and innuendo aside it is absolutely hilarious. I'm sure that reading it in English will prove even more funny. ( )
