One of my favorite books

I read this book for the first time in 6th grade and fell in love with the history. I am now a college sophomore majoring in contemporary history and with us now talking about the holocaust I decided to Reread the book. Now that I am older and I know more about the history I enjoyed it more. It is such a heartbreaking story.

I feel as though I was taken there

Although the subject of this book is a difficult one, I am so glad I took the opportunity to listen to it. As Hannah is taken back to 1942, I felt as though I was taken with her. I was reminded, yet again, why we must remember.

Accurately read but distracting sounds.

Wonderful story telling. Great use of inflection throughout the story. Unfortunately, the sounds of the speakers mouth were distracting to me and I could hear an echo in the background. Otherwise, great narrating :)

My thoughts

I think this book is really interesting. I never really liked to read but this book I got really into. I think people that are in to wars and like to read about what happens on the past would really like this book. This book talks about what life was like in the concentration camps and what it was like, what all the symbols are and what people went through. If your family are Jews and you are going to a sadder don't complain how boring it is.
