This book contains 2 stories that were planned as a 5 part novel. The author was murdered at Auschwitch in 1942. Unfortunatly this "unabridged" version does not include the important forward and appendices that outline the author's plans for the complete novel, nor does it tell about her life. I had to buy the book to get the extra 70 pages
This book is highly engaging, and very well written. The picture it paints of life during WW2 is unique and powerful. This book is intriguing and gripping, but at the end it felt unfinished. It felt as if the characters whom I'd come to care about, were left with their stories not completely told.
Wow, what a bore. the whole book could have been summarized into anout 35 minutes and it would have been a much better book. This was meaner through the lives of patty the wholely unintersting.
This book again proves that even an interesting and significant subject can be treated so poorly that you just scratch your head after sloggin through it.
