did not like it
bookshelves: tried-to-read-but-couldn-t-finish

Got about a third of the way through and just could not continue, so after several months of letting it sit on my Kindle I decided to move it to my "tried to read but couldn't finish" shelf for lack of another category. It literally made me sick to my stomach, and I have read a lot of books about the Holocaust. The only positive was that I was able to skim the part I did read because the long German last names take up a good bit of space and the rest was page after page of details of mass murders with the same descriptions over and over. One description of mass murders would have been more than enough. I got the picture during the first one. Too much so.
