Excellent book to make you think
Listened to this book on CD on a long car ride. I found that not only was my mind tricked into thinking the trip was shorter than usual, but I was so caught up in the storyline and the historical facts. It has made me so aware and think of the horrors and atrocities that millions of people endured during WWII. I highly recommend this book!
Skeletons at the Feast
I listened to the audiobook during 6 hour car commutes. I could not turn it off and presume that had I been reading the book, I would have had trouble putting it down. The characters are rich and distinct. The plot is complex and plausible. This story presented not only the points of views of the Jewish victims of the Third Reich, but of the German people who were seduced and coerced by it, and to some extent, of the European allied forces as well. Despite the horrors this story vividly depicts, it ends with fragments of hope sufficient to keep me from being utterly depressed about one of the most abominable eras in history.
