He is German, Jewish, and known to be a Communist. Having served behind enemy lines for years both in Europe and in Burma, Jackson considers the assignment a challenge, but not a big one. And Ploscaru is anything but a character out of a fairy tale. Complications enter, beginning with the dwarf Jackson quickly discovers that Ploscaru is a scoundrel who freely admits that he should not be trusted. The Communists want to capture the young man, who is not a Communist after all; apparently, they want to send him to Palestine to wreak havoc on the British occupiers.

And, of course, the family has its own reasons for wanting to find him. Meanwhile, Oppenheimer proves to be a masterful linguist who can pass not just for German but for British or American as well, upper class, low, or in-between. And unsurprisingly he has plans of his own. Naturally, the story becomes gorgeously complicated.

About the author Ross Thomas wrote twenty-five novels from to his death in He won numerous literary awards. Ross Thomas may be my favorite author.

He was a journalist before he tried his hand at fiction. The characters are quirky and often delightful.

This book is post World War II. There are soldiers, Nazis, Jews, a delusional killer that continues to hunt Nazis and kill them. And there is a dwarf. Great read. Buy it!!! Not only does Thomas always have a great plot, which in and of itself keeps your attention, he assembles a colorful and ecletic cast of characters.

The Eighth Dwarf is one of those books where you say "Just one more chapter" but read three more. The dialogue is convincing and the action is exciting. It's what "entertaining escape reading" is all about. Ross Thomas is a guy I really look Ross Thomas is a guy I really look forward to reading. Try them all! Ross Thomas was a great writer. This is one of his best books. The characters are well defined also real. Just the right mix of humor, action, adventure and fun.

Ross Thomas books are fun and different, lots of surprises and nothing is ever as you expect. Interesting, likable characters. One person found this helpful. Ross Thomas has no equal when it comes to this genre. See all reviews from the United States.

Top international reviews. Oppenheimer, German Jew, ex-Communist, expert killer is wanted by everyone from the Jews to kill Brits in Palestine to the Russians to kill various people in various places. Great evocation of war-ravaged Germany and the machinations of the secret services. A memorable character in the dwarf don't worry, over-protective PCers, he can take care of himself. Immaculately paced but has at times a darker mood and leading to a darker ending than Ross Thomas's novels sometimes do.

Recommended if you're already a fan, or if you like spy stories, good thrillers or just damn good writing. Thank you for your feedback. Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again. Ross Thomas is a particularly English writer with an amused view of life. His dialogue is excellent and his ear for speech very good. He has excellent ideas, some of them nicely bizarre without losing the sense of realism that is important in thrillers. In this book however, about threequarters through he begins to wander in circles losing the snap of progressive readable sequences.

The end is not quite a satisfying climax. Thomas never wrote a bad book. The dwarf is not the protagonist of this thrilling novel. The true "hero" is a Jewish survivor of the holocaust who takes justice in his own hands and becomes killer of his former oppressors.

As I do not expect a book that is as interesting as this one to be a moral tale, I recommend it to prospective readers with mature judgement. Load more international reviews. Nice to see the novels of Ross Thomas available again still waiting for Money Harvest. Those who have read some Thomas will snatch up the books which have been out-of-print for many years - those who haven't are in for a treat. But the Kindle Edition: Missing words, missing wrong punctuation, dozens of typos, no chapter markings are sub-standard imho.

Yes I know - the book has to be converted to ebook format. I don't think quick and dirty releases are the way to go though and more then 7 Euros isn't a bargain at that. So - five stars for the book and the re-release but 1 star reduction for the sub-standard quality. You've read the top international reviews.

This time, the Seven Dwarfs are unable to revive the girl, because they can't find the source of Snow White's poor health and, Eighth that she is dead, go here place her in a glass coffin. It is for this reason that go here intellectuals have tried, long-windedly, to claim that his name is Roland Barthes, or Julia Kristeva, but this will Dwarf do, it will not do at all. Oppenheimer, German Jew, ex-Communist, expert killer is wanted by everyone from the Jews to kill Brits in Palestine to The Russians to kill various people in various places.

Read more Atom. Rating details. Nobody wants to read Eiggth dwarves or Chinamen. You might think the ex-OSS guy is the hero just because of who he is, but Thomas treats him as just one of the many players in this boiling plot, even to the point of signaling the reader that he's not a major character by calling him Minor Jackson.
