it was amazing

5 stars just aren't enough for this book.

If you only read one book this year make it this one. Based in Berlin in the years leading up to the Second World War,for me nothing has brought the reality of life in Germany for the Jews more sharply into focus. However, whereas other books show you one side of the story, this book made me question what, as a non-Jew, would I have done in that situation to prevent the atrocity. What could I have done? It has also sent me away thinking why didn't the world do more, but then realising there are atrocities now and what can we do?

In amongst the horror winds the fascinating tale of twins, the bond they share, even though one is adopted, and the decisions they make for the love one girl.

I will be thinking about this book for a very long time after I have finished reading it. Ben Elton at his very best.
