This was a surprisingly good story. I was expecting a terrible story about the horrors of the Jews in WW2, and that was there, but there was also more.

The story has two levels, the one is the story of how the father lived through the war, and yes it is quite horrible in places. The other level is the son trying to relate to his father.

If you haven't read it yet, be warned: this reads like real life, there isn't a nice wrap up at the end where everything is now ok. Life simply goes on.

It is a depressing read, but one I enjoyed.
