More on The Kindly Ones

Kakutani takes her shot at Littell’s monster:

No doubt the author intends such remarks to convey the horrors of the Holocaust, but “The Kindly Ones” instead reads like a pointless compilation of atrocities and anti-Semitic remarks, pointlessly combined with a gross collection of sexual fantasies.

After this review, and Michael’s, The Kindly Ones is slowly working it’s way toward the bottom of our reading pile.
