Darkside Posted August 30, 2005 Share Posted August 30, 2005 Ever have something you felt like saying, but you couldn't find any opening to slide into any existing threads and it didn't make for much of a new one? Well here you are. It's sort of like the old "Useless Information Thread" except it's even more open. Kind of like organized spam. Only without the organization. I started reading "Summer of My German Soldier" today, and someone at Obsidian must have read it too. Its about a Jewish girl whose town in Arkansas is playing home to a prison camp for German POWs during WWII. She gets to know one of the enemy soldiers over time and learns he isn't what you would think. I haven't read much beyond the first page, but from what I gathered in the summary, he sounds sort of familiar. One part goes something like this: "'I came running out of hiding to- my God, I did, didn't I?' His hand dropped to his side, and I could see he was smiling his wonderful glad-to-be-living smile. 'After almost two years of being as inconspicuous a coward as possible, I had no idea that would voluntarily risk my life for anyone.' He shook his head in disbelief." His hair is brown with a bit of a wave in the front, and his name is Anton. Why does this sound oddly familiar...? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
