I came across this book rather by accident in watching a show on the History Channel called the Boys of Buchenwald. It mentions some excerpts from this and I went in search of it here.
This is truly a powerful, emotional book. It moves you as you hear it in first person, told through the eyes of a teenage boy witnessing the worst murders committed in recent history.
All I could think of was my own 12 year old son, picturing him walking the path that Elie walked. My heart broke repeatedly, but some how in all of it, his strength and resolve was there, deep inside, even when he didn't see it in himself.
I recommend this to everyone I know now. It will change you.
I have always been a Nora Roberts fan, she's a fantastic author and once again she did not fail to entertain me. In fact, I was disappointed it was over!
Some of the characters were a bit flimsy, a little too stero-typical. Also, of the "bad" guys, some were quite easy to just pinpoint from the beginning but others were a total shock. Loved it all and can't wait to get more by Nora Roberts.
The narrator did an excellent job, very believable and easy to distinguish between the various characters.
PS, enjoyed the narrator so much I'm looking at other books she reads just because she read them.
