's review

did not like it

I am very sorry, this is not a literary production worth my time. I took this book full of hope, after reading "Night" (which was a four stars in my books, I think) .... Unlike Night, though, this new novel an invention, a clever mind building a situation and offering an ending.

This writing(?) does not contribute to the historical account of WWII, the way Night does, nor does it provide any literary achievement (i.e. the literary means employed in this book are mediocre at best).

So no hisorical value, no literary value, the thing is a one star without hesitation.

Let's not forget, this is a Nobel Prize winner for Peace, not literature (!) .... I honestly don't think many of the people rating this book took the time to ask themselves what is it that this book brings to the plate.
