    An American in Vienna is a wonderful read You are transported to 1914 Europe at the beginning of WWI I have never been to Europe but this book has painted a beautiful picture of the history and landscape of a country I would love to see some day I enjoyed being along side our main character Andy as he grew and developed a sense of who he was My heart was overjoyed and ached with his and I could get a true idea of what he must be feeling Andy seemed so real to me and I found myself rooting for him throughout the story I truly fell in love with each and every character and was able to relate with each of them on some level or anotherYou don't have to be a fan of war stories either to read this book There is plenty of romance and history to keep you wanting This is a beautifully written story that brought out a flood of emotions within myself I will admit I even shed a tear or two Please take the time to read this book I loved it and I hope you will too

    What a great find this book was It's been 20 years since I did a study abroad program in Vienna and I was feeling nostalgic about my trip So I looked on for an historical fiction book about turn of the century Vienna I had studied the art architecture history and literature from that time period when I was there This book was about that and a lot I think it captured the tone of that uniue era as well as the general tone of the Austrian people And then the second half of the book turned into great story about World War I I thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it
