Tom Nolan - The Wall Street JournalBrand: Pegasus Books. this book is a great read. i really loved the way the mephisto mythical story was told through the eyes of the protaganist. i also really enjoyed how the ruling party at the time was referred to as the devil. a very progressive story for its time/5(14). Ive seen the movie years ago, and just the other day, but it pales in comparison to the book! The Mephisto Waltz is a fairly quick read, but it was full of details, right to the very end. Mr. Stewarts writing is through, yet easy to read. Although the movie was unnerving it doesnt capture the story in its entirety/5.
