I was worried that there would be a twist at the end. But no, the tone is consistent throughout. I didn't know a gread deal of this history. I don't know if I had ever heard of the Nazi massacre/razing of Lidice, Czeckoslovakia. The history is of terrible events. I decided not to read this before sleeping (no Nazis before bed). But the writer keeps a light hand on the material and his drive to imagine it all without letting imagination overwhelm what can be known of the actual events. ( )

I've had this book sitting on my bookshelf for a little while now, I think I bought at the beginning of the year after it was heavily pushed by Waterstones. I have to admit that my attention was grabbed by the striking cover and also the display in the store that was put together. I enjoy reading about WWII in both fictional and non fictional books so I thought that I would enjoy this one.

As I have read a lot about WWII over the years I knew the broad terms of the story but I couldn't recall if Heydrich survived the attack or not. This was a good thing for me because it meant that the story still maintained an element of surprise for me. I also learned some things about the Nazi occupation of Prague which I didn't previously know. The major Nazi characters were well known to me but there was some really good background on the parachutists and the civilians involved in the operation. Binet has clearly done a lot of research prior to writing the book.

Along the way Binet has a monologue going about how you should go about writing a novel based on true events. I didn't feel as though this added anything to the book but I didn't find it too distracting either. It could have been omitted without damaging the book and it's inclusion struck me as strange.

The story is well written and well covered but at times I felt as though something was missing in the writing. I can't say whether this was down to the translation, the author, or the disjointed chapter lengths but something wasn't right. Despite this I found the book to be an enjoyable if not amazing read.

I never knew about Jozef Gabčík and Jan Kubiš. There are many stories from the Second World War which I never learnt in school. It's fascinating discovering them. What makes this book special are both the fascinating true events and the way the author explains them to us. Even if you aren't interested in history or the Second World War, you will enjoy reading this book. It's exciting and touching. ( )

I thoroughly disliked this book. Whatever it is called, metafiction or infranovel, the style undermined the seriousness & sadness of a Czech & Slovak who gave their lives to assassinate the man behind the Final Solution. The author’s diatribes about his fears, doubts, pride in his research interrupted & belittled the subject. His style may be appropriate in another setting, maybe, not here. ( )

HHhH by Laurent Binet
Laurent Binet at an early age was told the story of the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich and, from that day on, developed an obsession resulting in his writing HHhH.

Considered a novel it is more a hybrid; the story of how Heydrich was killed, coupled with a description of how Binet’s years of research culminated in the publication of HHhH.
HHhH is an abbreviation of Himmler’s Hirn heist Heydrich which translates to Himmler’s Brain is called Heydrich. Reinhard Heydrich was an ambitious young man whose desires, and womanizing led him to be mustered out of the German Navy. Without a clear direction he wrangled an interview with Hitler’s right hand, Himmler, and acing the interview he quickly climbed the ranks of the infamous SS. He hired Eichmann, developed the plans called The Final Solution which Goering endorsed and signed on 7/31/41.

Once the war begins Heydrich is installed as the “protecktor” of Czechoslovakia. It is there that the story that Binet tells intersperses with the resistance that the former President of the Czech’s, Benes, directs from the confines of London. Indeed, the Czech and Slovak people become a major force in Britain’s struggles against the Nazis. A good proportion of the RAF are manned with pilots from Benes’s command. In London, a group of parachutists are trained to be dropped in Czechoslovakia to sabotage the Nazi advances. There Józef Gabcik and Jan Kubis are picked to carry out the killing of Heydrich.

Heydrich proves himself to be ruthless, merciless and is dubbed The Blond Beast. Still in his mid-30s he has ambition to become next in command to the Fuhrer and, one day, even supplant Hitler as leader of the German Republic.

“Hitler respects Heydrich because he combines fierceness with efficiency. If you add to this his loyalty toward the Fuhrer, you get the three elements that make the perfect Nazi…Hitler knows that H is a rising star ready to do anything to further his own ambitions.”.

Heydrich draws high marks from his higher ups for his treatment of Jews and traitors. In Chapter 111 , a brief two page entry, Binet writes a chilling description of the execution of 33,771 Jews from Kiev in the trenches of Babi Yar (September 29-30, 1941). Reading this passage sent a chill through me.

Much of the book relates how Gabcik and Kubis interact with the extensive network of partisans and resistors in Prague and the Czech countryside. These are people that need to be heroized for their efforts in resisting and combatting the Nazi horrors.

That this historical story is “novelized” allows Laurent to have license to describe events in a way that “might have occurred”. Given his years of research though, he leans heavily on documents and firsthand accounts to keep the story alive. He pulls in obscure facts and stories to paint a fuller picture of life under Nazi rule. In Chapter 112 he depicts how the Dynamo FC of Kiev defeats the German Luftwaffe team to the delight of the Ukrainian crowd and the team from Kiev is then executed for the humiliation.

Binet has created a unique technique of storytelling. He freely reflects on the years long process and research he endured to write HHhH. He sites other books written about the events described and very often judges his own efforts less than successful. Despite his own judgment he has created a worthwhile tale that keeps the reader engaged and involved. The book was awarded the Prix Goncourt du Premier Roman in 2009. ( )

Precies dit soort terzijdes maakt Binets roman zo aantrekkelijk. Hij is, als kind van deze tijd, voortdurend in discussie met wat er om hem heen gebeurt, hij beschrijft waarom de toedracht van de aanslag hem fascineert, maar meldt ook hoe het hem persoonlijk vergaat, hoe hij vast komt te zitten en worstelt om verder te komen. Hij schrijft op wat zijn meelezers tegen hem zeggen en betrekt de lezer bij de totstandkoming van zijn spannende roman.

Het debuut van Laurent Binet (1972) is niet gewoon bijzonder. Het is subliem. (...) Pas wanneer we in HhhH Heydrich en de situatie in Tsjechië goed in beeld hebben, verschijnen de helden ten tonele. De roman begint trekjes te vertonen van Tarantino's film Inglourious Basterds, zij het dat dit wél echt is gebeurd. Het wordt opeens razend spannend en leest supersnel. (...) Ondanks zijn voornemen niets te willen verzinnen om de mensen die in zijn boek voorkomen zoveel mogelijk recht te doen, heeft Binet een modus gevonden om prachtige literatuur te maken van deze bizarre episode uit de geschiedenis. Het concept van de historische roman heeft bij hem een nieuwe invulling gekregen.

Once again, the writer stains the tree of History with his thoughts, but it is not for us to find the trick that would enable us to put the animal back in its carrying cage.
