The premise of this book was excellent and a lot of the direction was excellent. The issue was maybe with the editing and pacing. There didn't seem to be enough clarity in the voice of the work to come throughout the whole book and therefore reach a conclusion. So some highs and lows. I hope this author continues to work at it. He clearly has something useful to say and needs to find the right way to say it.

I so wanted to like this book but it was so disjointed and fell flat for me. I did not finish this book.

A complex and intense post war narrative, extremely well researched. An interesting read for those with an interest in the horrors of the Holocaust and the question of the fate of the longtime companion of Adolf Hitler.

Yeah, I didn’t like this at all. I had a hard time focussing while reading this book, which lead me to retaining absolutely nothing. The story felt a bit all over the place and the writting was way too dense.

Hedeen's book, The Butterfly, had a very interesting premise, but unfortunately the style of writing and disjointedness of the story made the book very sluggish and grinding to get through. This is not a book I can recommend.

Thank you NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advance reader copy.

I had high expectations for this book. In the preview of the book, the description of the plot sounded so interesting and unique. I was quite eager to read it. However I found the writing style difficult to follow though it was innovative. The flow of the story seemed somewhat disjointed and thus made it hard to follow. The story also expressed some questionable opinions concerning Eva Braun and Adolf Hitler. In my opinion the book needs to be re-edited to make it more palatable to a wide audience. Regrettably it is the first book in a long time that I am unable to finish reading, I made several efforts to. try and read the book until the end. Therefore I am feel I am unable to give the book a complete in depth review.

The Butterfly looked promising but fell short. It's a disjointed odd story. I didn't exactly know what was going on. I didn't enjoy this one. Thanks to NetGalley for an arc in exchange for an honest review.

Absolutely life changing!!! This book opened my eyes to so much I’d been missing. The writing is wonderful and the messages are clear. All books have meaning...but this one just spoke to me. Lovely work!

The style of writing is very descriptive. And the author tries to be very original with the layout of the story. As a result I have to say for the first time, this book is unreadable.
