Content of Novel[edit]

My reading of the book is years past but my truthful impression is not as such as told on the current page. I believe the relevance of holocaust should not be focal on introducing the content of the novel. Where is the love story of Irene? And the personal struggle? Someone who has a fresh memory of the read is welcome to contribute. MarkBeer 07:45, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Amistimesarrow.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Amistimesarrow.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

The fact that the main character is a holocaust doctor is a surprise two thirds of the way through the book. I think there should be a spoiler alert on this page, but I'm not sure what the preferred format is for those. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Majorb42 (talkcontribs) 19:09, 9 March 2008 (UTC)


I think the review that's linked to this entry is a particularly poor one (positive but shallow, little analytical traction). Anybody have links to a better one? Maybe a spectrum of quality reviews that capture a range of responses? (talk) 20:56, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

Plot summary reversal[edit]

It might have been better to describe the plot in normal time. Saying that the character went to Poland in reverse time (i.e., he fled Poland as a war criminal) just confuses the reader of the summary. CharlesTheBold (talk) 02:22, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

Hier ist kein warum[edit]

Does it strike anyone else as a little strange that this is the same line spoken by the guard in Primo Levi's, If This Is a Man ?

Not particularly - Amis lists If This is a Man as one of his influences for writing the book Aniboker (talk) 23:58, 14 December 2016 (UTC)
