    Cockroach Hotel. Angst und bange Geschichten. by Genzmer, Herbert and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at Unfortunately, Cockroach just wasn't my kind of book. I didn't care for the characters. Sure, the main character was a delusional criminal, but I am not referring to his morality. The character just didn't seem REAL. I didn't care about anybody because they didn't seem human. The whole book is written in a style that I can't quite describe /5(8).
