Stones in Water | [Donna Jo Napoli]

Stones in Water

When Roberto sneaks off to see a movie in his Italian village, he has no idea that life as he knows it is over. German soldiers raid the theater, round up the boys in the audience, and pack them onto a train. After a terrifying journey, Roberto and his best friend Samuele find themselves in a brutal work camp, where food is scarce and horror is everywhere. The boys vow to stay together no matter what. But Samuele has a dangerous secret, which, if discovered, could get them both killed.

    "Excellent Read"

    Napoli gives a revealing depiction of what happened to Italians in WWII.A subject not often written about in popular fiction. Eye opening and informative, she wraps your heart around the characters and their plight.

    "Disappointment!"
    What would have made Stones in Water better?

    The book is very slow and the performance lacks vitality.


    What could Donna Jo Napoli have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I would be reluctant to read another of the author's books.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Christian Rummel’s performances?

    I would be unlikely to seek out another one of Christian Rummel's performances.
