it was amazing
bookshelves: 2009, classic

Without really planning it, lately I seem to be reading coming-of-age books or books set in the 1930’s Europe. The Garden of the Finzi-Continis combined the two trends that literary serendipity has sent in my direction in this tale of love and loss. That as readers we know from the first pages that most of the characters will not survive the Holocaust is almost cruel: a constant reminder that youth, goodness, friendship and erudition are not enough shelter from historical and political movements breed in fundamentalism and hate.
