An American living in London receives a phone call from a German policewoman telling him the nearly inconceivable news that his sister Miriam has been found dead in her Berlin apartment from starvation Three weeks later the man his father and an American consular official named Trish find themselves in the bizarre surroundings of a fo. I was given this book for free by Net Galley in exchange for an honest review for the publisherI love a depressing book and if you are looking for a read that makes you feel empty and depraved this is it Munich Airport takes place entirely in the setting indicated by the title where the main character and his father are waiting for a delayed plane The family is in Munich to pick up the body of the sister who has died of starvation an illness that becomes a central metaphor in the novel While in the airport the main character continually flashes back to experiences that occurred during his childhood and throughout the several weeks that they spent in Munich while waiting for the body to be released One primary strength of the novel is the writing Well written with imaginative and clever prose Munich Airport is skillfully composed At times however it read a bit like an MFA thesis too many devices compiled one after anotherAnother strength of the novel is the depiction of the main character s thoughts Although another reader may perceive this entirely differently in my opinion the main character arrived in Berlin as a rather normal professional adult Although grieving he appeared sane educated and practical However the longer he spends in Berlin with his father the he seems to lose his mind By the end the main character strongly resembles the character from American Psycho I couldn t stop comparing the two characters and the I read the the resemblance increased His thoughts are erratic and his actions are unpredictable In this way the theme of starvation or perhaps deprivation is a better way to think of it arises throughout the novel The sister has literally starved herself to death dying of malnutrition after admitting that she enjoys the sense of control that not eating affords her While the reader grapples with the sister s physical starvation the minds of the other characters are examined and found wanting Starved of happiness and comfort the characters experience existence as painful and agonizing I m not sure if the formatting of the novel was faulty due to it being an ebook and not the final version at that but the flashbacks were not clearly indicated in the text Normally a novel that contains flashbacks especially this many would designate these memories by white space however this book moves in between time periods without any visual indication of the change I found this confusing at times although I was able to find my way so long as I paid close attentionLike I said I love a depressing book and this one gets a B in
