To be 15 and held in contempt and raging hatred by your countrymen... Gerda is but a young girl when the war rolls into town, and yet she survives and adapts to even the most brutal treatment. Her story is haunting, full of memories and details that I will never forget, I am thankful she shared them. She writes with a voice devoid of hatred, and she reminded me how lucky I am to be alive and well and surrounded by those I love.
Told in a series of stories from childhood comes this book of a poor Irish childhood. The narrator is the author and I think it works for this story.
This book really made me think, on many levels. Written from the perspective of a survivor, who not only survived but thrived.
Loved the ideas and thoughtful nature of this book. The action is non-stop, and slowly the story unfolds to tell us why. Beautifully done.
This book is a compelling and though provoking guide to the Holocaust. Helps answer alot of questions like: why? and why didn't they help themselves? and finally how did a group of people get away with mass murder. Listen, you won't be sorry.
Loved this history of Genghis Khan. What a guy!
I have read other histories and know that things aren't exactly correct in this telling, however, it is well worth the read.
Sad what the Haters created, and sad what Danny became. Weak and sick and wondering what the heck took place Danny finds himself in a unique position, but will he do what is right? or what he feels is best...?
This book continues where Hater left us. Danny is trying to be who he is and live in the world thats been changed by the Hate. The capture and subsequent "therapy" he's given is feels a bit far-fetched, but keeps the story going and sets us up for "Them or Us" the last book in the Hater Series.
Love this story. The narrater is great and the story is beyond. Imagine if someone you love and trust suddenly turned on you? Or if suddenly you felt threatened by someone you loved and felt you must kill them or they'd kill you?
Great idea for an even better story. Thanks David Moody.
Love this series. It's fun, has a touch of romance and mystery. The narrator is great and helps make the story better. Not a serious read, but fun.
Loved this story. The protagonist is so filled with memories and pain... as are all the women she's surrounded by. Beautifully narrated by Claire Danes, in an almost monotone, which is so fitting for the story. In that time and that place monotone was the only way to be.
