it was amazing
Recommended to Russell by: Patricia Sanchez
Recommended for: writers, holocaust readers
Read from August 21, 2011 to February 23, 2012 — I own a copy

Three quarters of the way through this book I was beginning to lose faith in its beauty. I'm sure it was hard to sustain for the author at this point. However, in the end it lived up to expectations. The writing became so beautiful again. It was almost making me cry. Though it took me a great while to finish, this book was very much worth the read, and highly recommended.
