While the World is Still Asleep by Petra Durst-Benning

While the World Is Still Asleep - Petra Durst-Benning, Edwin Miles

This book was excruciatingly dull and was only made worse by horrible audio narration. The story takes place in Berlin, but only a few people have thick German accents, while the main characters sound more American than I do. Odd anachronisms and two-dimensional characters didn't help the slow plot along either.
