I enjoyed this read. Mostly. With so many book and movies about the Holocaust this one finally offers a different perspective. I also appreciated its unpredictability. However I thought the narrative was interrupted by little bold giveaways, explaining the story without having to explain it. (That comment will only make sense if you've read.) It made for a good discussion and if you're a lover of books this story will pull at your heart strings. I cried at the very end. I think it speaks volumes of a book when it can evoke real tears or loud laughter. There's my two cents on this one.
