    I wasn't sure I was going to connect with this story at first, due to its absurd premise. Patience is definitely an asset, and the payoff is exceptionally rewarding. The surreal, unique conceit takes the Holocaust as background and purpose and weaves a persuasive tale. Frank's oblique narrative approach is strange, and myth-like, so that the reader is initially at arm's length, bemused at what appears to be an inconceivable plot. However, it all comes together in a compelling, tender, plausible, [...]

    DidI find I could understand this novel despite being totally ignorant about philosophy?: YES.  There's a philosopher as a character and some lovely passages that have a sort of philosophical bent to them, but the writing and the plot grab you immediately.WasI reminded a little of Michael Ondaatje and Jeanette Winterson?: YES.  The book is delicate without being precious or overwrought; the essence of the story is there without being too thin or leaving the reader at arm's length. Didis book m [...]

    This review also posted on my blog. I really enjoy reading stories about the Holocaust and about the people who have lived through it. I suppose that in a way, it helps me to gain perspective in my own life, and reminds me that there is goodness to be found in everything. The suffering of the Jewish people during WWII was immense, yet they continue to hope and live. That means something to me. Heidegger's Glasses takes a different path, a surreal and philosophical and almost mystical one, and is [...]

    Heidegger's Glasses is based on a premise borne of occult leanings of top members of the Hitler's German Reich, that the dead must not be ignored. For this reason, in this "otherworld" Germany, there is a compound of Scribes, all people chosen from transports because of their language skills to live in a compound and write letters that will never be read by a living eye. Goebbels is the mastermind.At first I wasn't sure about my feelings for this book and where it was heading and put it aside fo [...]

    Any random event can cause you to lose your bearings; the world becomes strange, an alien place. For Heidegger, the event was triggered by dropping his glasses. After a time, the world righted itself and he wrote about it.For those touched by the terror of Nazi Germany, the rise of Hitler created an environment that permanently vacated its place in any normal sequence of events; life was suspended without anchor, past, or future. The only way to survive was to create an alternate space in the mi [...]

    More of a 3.5. I don't find quite a four, but it's more than a three.So I got this book free via for my new Kindle (and boy does have hunderds of free books for your Kindle). To my surprise, it's actually quite good. True, sometimes the writing doesn't quite flow, and I'm not sure if I really like Frank's style. Yet, the story is compelling, the characters fully realized, and I wouldn't have minded paying for it.Frank tells the story of the Scribes, letter writers to the dead, in World War II. [...]

    Every once in a while a random book selection turns out to be a thought provoking gem. Heidegger's Glasses is one such book.Set in Germany, towards the end of WWII, an underground compound houses a number of Jewish scribes. The only reason why they've managed to avoid being transported to concentration camps or shot outright is because of their multi-language skills. They're kept in this compound to answer letters written by victims in concentration camps, most of whom had died by the time their [...]

    The world of this novel is fascinating. It is real--a historical WWII setting--and it is imaginary--in the Compound of Scribes captives (who can translate a variety of languages) write letters to the dead so that they will keep their secrets about the Nazi plan for the Final Solution. While the compound provides some security for the captives (are we safe?--the constant question), it also imprisons them with the SS guards in a mineshaft built to look like a village. There is a world above the co [...]

    "Sometimes he liked to imagine that each star was a word, and the sky was a piece of paper. Then the stars unfurled into a phrase- a proclamation for just one night." Heidegger's Glasses by Thaisa Frank takes place during World War II, as a group of Jews live underground in a converted mine, called the compound, as scribes, translating and answering letters written to the dead. These Jews were saved because of their knowledge of multiple languages, and as a result of the Third Reich's reliance o [...]

    Heideggers Glasses is a work of historical fiction. Ms. Frank concludes this work by stating, "This is a work of fiction. Names, characters, places, and incidents are the product of the author's imagination or are used fictitiously. Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, is entirely coincidental." It's a good thing she reminds the reader that the book is a work of fiction. Ms. Frank so carefully weaves historical facts with her fictional threads in the story that it is impossible to [...]

    Why I wanted to read this book: I was immediately captured by the original plot for this story. I like historical fiction and felt ready to read another book about the Holocaust and WWII.What worked for me: * The originality of the storyline really blew me away. I am totally amazed at how the author weaved this story to the point that she actually had me convinced that these letter writers existed. * I think she captured how insane Hitler and his regime was and the affect that his actions had on [...]

    I found this novel profoundly compelling and gorgeously conceived, written with great care and beauty. This band of "Scribes" in an underground Compound in northern Germany, deep in the woods, toward the end of World War II, have become part of my own imaginary now; they have moved into my heart and soul. Each character, especially the central two figures, who are lovers, is very real, and yet the whole world of the Scribes -- the world of the novel -- is touched with a kind of magic, which almo [...]

    Undelivered LettersWriting a novel about the Holocaust is difficult because the terrible events are so well known as to numb readers with repetition. Writers wanting to evoke the horrors afresh must find ways of approaching them from unusual directions. Of these, one of the most risky—because on the face of it absurd—is through fantasy.* Though there have been successes. Roberto Benigni managed (almost) to write an Auschwitz comedy in his movie Life is Beautiful. Joseph Skibell called on Jew [...]

    As I was reading Heidegger's Glasses, I thought to myself "I'm not really enjoying this as much as I think I should be". But I kept reading anyway and, when I put it down last night, I thought myself "Wow, that was pretty good." And really hard to explain.Martin Heidegger was a German philosophy who plays a peripheral role in the story, but whose presence is always looming off stage. Early in the book, he writes about feeling like he's "fallen out of the world" and that's what this story really [...]

    Here I sit with furrowed brow pondering what to write about Heidegger's Glasses. I shouldn't have liked it but I did. I wish there had been more punctuation. Following conversations presented without enough commas and that helpful little thing writers do where they insert such bits as "Joe said" or ","muttered Leslie. Can be so confusing. But then I am rather stupid and hard to please. And I'll be darned if the story wasn't really cool even though half the time I wasn't sure who was speaking and [...]

    I heard a lot of buzz about this book a couple years back and wanted to like the book, but I didn't. Some of it is just personal preference. This is a book that tends towards philosophy. It's more about ideas than about a story or about characters. I didn't feel connected to the characters as individuals -- they were more or less the same (or opposites) spouting ideas and thoughts throughout the book. The characters said almost the same things and you could have replaced one name for another wit [...]

    This book is really haunting. It is fiction - set in WWII - about a group of Jewish linguists who are kept in an underground bunker/city to write letters to the dead. Both Goebbels and Himmler were fascinated by the occult, and this book is based on the idea that it was important to the Nazis to have the letters that were written (often under coercion) from the concentration camps be answered, even though the original letter writers are long since dead.The main characters - Elie Schachten, a wom [...]

    One of the great things about Heidegger’s Glasses that no one in the novel is completely good or bad. Each of the main characters is forced to do things that he or she might normally have shunned. War does that to people, and Frank’s representation of life underground during World War II illustrates this beautifully.Elie, the main character, intrigued me from the beginning. She is mysterious, secretive, and kind. Traveling the countryside, she saves people, but she loses more of herself in t [...]

    vacation read #8: not sure what to think about this. I question the historicity. Seems literature and pop fiction has a lot to say about Nazis and the occult, but it appears that most of it is very poorly sourced. This is no exception, although the author does make (sort of) clear that this entire story is just a fiction she made up in her own little mind. Still wish it had more basis in fact. I've only been able to confirm what facts I already knew: Heidegger's existence, and the letters writte [...]

    Some books just resonate with you, some don't. This one didn't move me at all. Historically, it sounds fascinating and it's certainly a different perspective from which to look at World War 2 and the Third Reich. The writing style was surreal and philosophical and reminded me of something you might read in an advanced English class in school. I found the book difficult to follow and I was more confused than intrigued. Ultimately, I didn't have the time nor the energy that this book required of m [...]

    I am very interested in the Holocaust and survivor stories. I knew that this was a work of fiction, but was ultimately disappointed in the small basis in fact. I was not aware that many prisoners were forced to write letters before they were gassed. Frank includes "letters" at the end of each chapter, but I have to assume that she made all of them up. The "letters" are the most interesting thing about the book. The rest of the novel dwells on a group of Jewish scribes that were supposed to answe [...]

    An interesting story that shows the personal impact of WWII on a group of might-have-been concentration camp residents who are saved for a secret Reich project and on those who are in charge of them.

    I liked the last half of the book much better than the first half. The first half had me skimming some areas, due to not being involved in the story line.I did like the philosophical aspect, and liked the somewhat surrealism of the story line.

    Heidegger’s Glasses is a paradox. It addresses directly the atrocities of the Holocaust and yet it remains a light and even enjoyable read. The scenario is that the Nazi regime has arranged for a Compound of Scribes to write letters for the purpose of helping to cover-up the “Final Solution.” The Scribes are Jews who have been plucked from the death camps based on their language ability. The Compound occupies an abandoned mine underground. They are part of the underground in a very literal [...]

    Heidegger's Glasses is a complex story set in Germany at the turning point of World War II, in 1943. The book is about Nazis setting up a program to answer letters of concentration camp victims, or the letters of the dead. They believe it's important because of the dead can 'rest' then Germany will win the war. Basically all adults arriving at concentration camps had to send postcards home, praising their conditions and inviting their relatives to apply to join them. Those postcards were answere [...]

    Getting into this story took a bit of doing but I found that I really liked and admired Elie Schacten and Gerhardt Lodenstein, the lovers, who are the key characters in this novel. Their goal is to save as many people as they can from the Nazis. The book's premise is based on a program instituted by the Reich called Briefaktion, or Operation Mail. Jews who were taken to Auschwitz were required to write postcards or letters to home indicating that they were safe and well. Instead, these messages [...]

    Gleichantworten Mögen (Like Answers Like) hammered out in the same jaunty semicircle as Arbeit Macht Frei.The story for the most part takes part in the Compound of Scribes – various intellectuals that we’re pulled from lineup and camps to answer the letters to the dead.This is not your atypical historical fiction of the era of WWII or not, this is more an existentialist viewing of a set of situations. If you have read existentialist fiction before you know what to expect, if you haven’t I [...]

    My interest in Heidegger’s Glasses was piqued by the description of a novel that engages themes of occultism in the context of a Nazi Germany increasingly aware of the likelihood of losing World War II, and in particular by the characterization of the mood as “dreamlike.” The challenge of crafting an ethereal narrative around a subject as un-subtle as the Nazis, in my mind seemed likely to require a deft touch indeed. Given the subject matter, I was anticipating a story that felt surrealis [...]
