I'll say. It was an incredible testament to the human spirit.

Amy S Ditto ditto ditto. I do feel validated that you loved it -- I was afraid someone else would think it was too sappy or something. I think it's the best book I've read this year as well. Gave it to my dad for Christmas. It's true what you said, if this were fiction it would have flopped as being too unbelievable.

There's no way any person with a speck of sense wouldn't be inspired by this story. I'm so glad for GR, and good reviewers like you and others - as a result, I've read some real winners that I wouldn't have known about otherwise.

How did your dad like it?

Jill Great review, Hannah! The same for me, I love non-fiction war stories, biographies. Wish I had more time to read them.

Laura Before GR, I hardly read any non-fiction but now things have changed quite a lot.

Thanks, Jill. If you haven't read this yet, I obviously recommend you do! There are a few parts about some of the Aussie POW's that were interred at the camps as well. I won't say more, but one part after the liberation moved me sadly and deeply.

Same here, Laura. As I get older, I find non-fiction more and more interesting, while fiction is a mixed bag, and many times newer fiction sends my blood pressure sky high.

:D
Apart from Dracula and Twilight (which I'll go on the record here and now as enjoying tremendously), I am not a fan on the vampire genre, or actually the urban fantasy genre.

I despise newer historical fiction because it so often has too much of a contemporary feel and the historical inaccuracies drive me crazy.

Laura I do agree with you!!

Anna Rice I agree 5 stars is not even close to enough!
