    Pure Luck

    Elie Wiesel, Thomas Blatt, Filip Muller, David Faber, and Viktor Frankl were holocaust survivors. Over 6 million innocent lives were taken during the World War II by the Nazis all over Europe. But these people were the few who decided to write about their experiences in the genocide. The Cage is about a holocaust survivor, Ruth Minsky Sender, and her side of the story. I thought this book was mediocre because I had a notion that Riva was very "lucky" compared to other concentration camp survivors. I was looking forward to more of a trill, suspense, and more brutal struggles. There were indeed, trill, suspense and struggles, just not enough for me. I felt the main character, Riva, was a strong and caring. She had to step up to the plate and take care of her brothers through the ghetto. Have you ever felt like you needed someone to be there for you when you were discouraged or struggling? I think the author is trying to communicate to her audience to stick together to your close ones during complicated situations, and by doing that, you will have support, encouragement, and of course, company. I remember during PE, we were running a large distance and I was about to give up towards the end but my friends talked me through to go on, and finish. "I ask not for a lighter burden, but for broader shoulders," a Jewish proverb. I say this is a good read but not a great one.
