‘Munich’ is the latest thriller from the accomplished Robert Harris and is familiar territory for him – set in 1938 pre-war London and Munich. Harris’ latest novel tells the story of Anglo-German relations and negotiations culminating in the Munich agreement signed in the September of that year,...

The ability to seamlessly blend fact & fiction is a skill that Robert Harris has shown in many of his previous novels, & I'm pleased to say that Munich is no exception. The events of the 1938 Munich meeting between Hitler & Chamberlain are given added tension (because we already know t...

This novel is set over four days during the September 1938 Munich Conference where an agreement was signed between Hitler, Mussolini, Chamberlain and Daladier to settle the fate of Czechoslovakia. “Munich” is a tantalising game of “what if” and a glimpse on how things might have turned out. The...

In a nutshell, this is a revisionist history of the 1938 Munich Agreement masquerading as a World War II thriller. The action covers four days at the end of September 1938, when British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain flew to Germany to meet Adolf Hitler and the Prime Ministers of France and I...

Britain is torn – if Germany carries out its threat, there will inevitably be Europe-wide war, a war fo...

I've been a Robert Harris fan since "Fatherland" and "Enigma", though I was very disappointed in his latest book, "Conclave". I gave it two stars, I think, writing that it was almost cartoon-like in its paper-thin characters and non-sensical plot. I was hoping the just published book, "Munich" wo...

Princess Fuzzypants here: Sometimes I read a book that takes its time in drawing me in, Often the main characters are not strong enough to make me care what happens to them. And then there is a book like Munich. From the first page I was hooked, totally drawn into the story and the characters. Whi...

Robert Harris has the enviable knack of making you forget that you know the outcome of the events he is fictionalising and immersing you completely in the moment. The tension in Munich as Great Britain and Germany teeter on the brink of war during the Sudetenland Crisis of 1938 is palpable and co...

I’m a big fan of Robert Harris’s work, and I’ve enthusiastically enjoyed Fatherland, Enigma, An Officer and a Spy and Conclave. I got Munich from the UK so that I could read it as soon as possible. Unfortunately, though this is certainly well written, I can’t recommend it. I am a longtime reader o...
