I love Rosenberg's way of writing.
Mark5 Stars Out Of 5great readJuly 14, 2016MarkQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5This was a fantastic, yet sobering read. Rosenberg has again written a masterpiece of a story, this time about the death camp at Auschwitz. Although the story is fictional, it is based on real events and people. I was again horrified as I read of the atrocities done on so many Jews by a madman determined to wipe all Jews off the face of the earth.
I again found myself wondering how so much of the world sat idly by as these events happened. I wondered why the USA didn't intervene sooner.
This was a book that was hard to read. While it described some terrible things that were done at the death camp, it was also interesting and gripping. I liked the characters he created who had to daily deal with the trials of living in a death camp that was intended to kill them all. I saw how evil can so easily prosper when good men do nothing. I saw how easily people can be convinced that evil politicians are not up to no good, when indeed they are.
Although this is a fictional book, it should be a warning to us all that our own country could be that way some day. We are headed there more and more each day, and just like there were people back then who did not believe the things they heard, there are countless people today who refuse to hear the bad thing they favorite politician has done and is up to. It is true we are bound to repeat history if we do not repeat it.
This was a darker read than I normally enjoy, but it was definitely worth reading, and I highly recommend it.

A first foray into historical fiction, this is well-researched, plausible, and riveting. One of those books that you can't put down!
torisla4 Stars Out Of 5Great book!December 19, 2014torislaQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4I really liked this book! It had was hard to let go of it once the story started rolling. But it doesn't get the fifth star because I think it is too predictable for my taste at times. But a great read none the less, and I would recommend this story to anyone.
