Not your typical story about the Holocaust

This book was one of those that you start and either finish in one night or draw out because it is so well written, you don't want it to end. The author took me places. He made me think about the roles of redemption and what it means to love. Great book......

I think the idea was great. And the story was amazing. But I was left feeling like something was missing. It felt like the story was rushed and too much info was crammed into a small book. I wish the author had developed the story and let the book be 500 pages rather than rush the story so it was only 300 pgs. For example, the father had written 24 journals but the parts of the journals shared wouldn't even fill up one journal. It was a nice read, but I was left disappointed and wanting more.

    Expected more..

    After reading the reviews on this, I was really interested in reading it. It was just "ok" to me. I thought it was kind of boring and I definately expected more from this book.

    Not what I expected

    This book was quite a let down. The characters are so poorly developed that I found myself not caring about any of it. Not one character was likeable or relatable and I didn't feel anything for them at any point in the reading. Also, if you don't speak yiddish, a good chunk of the book will be incomprehensible. But I guess my biggest complaint is some of the plot twists and sub-stories were pointless and added for no reason other than to make the book dramatic. The idea was good and it could have been an interesting theme, but it just didn't do anything for me.
