Katriann (annelisreadingroom) | 2192 comments I also started my book. I think I'm gonna write comments after every 100 pages or so.

Drishti (drishti_ohri) | 431 comments I think I'll follow the same pattern then.


Katriann (annelisreadingroom) | 2192 comments Okay, 100 pages.

I've actually never been the biggest fan of historical fiction but this book is pretty interesting. I think the writing is beautiful and the horrors of the war feel real.

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Katriann, have you read Between Shades of Gray? It was so good!

Katriann (annelisreadingroom) | 2192 comments No, I havent read Between Shades of Gray. Maybe I should check it out. Thanks for the tip Vicki. ☺


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments You're welcome. :)

Okay, Alfred (view spoiler)

Ingrid (view spoiler)

I'm pretty sure (view spoiler)

I feel bad for Emilia. (view spoiler)


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I'm so sorry but I probably can't start this tonight. I've been on the road with my husband taking care of business all day.


Katriann (annelisreadingroom) | 2192 comments Don't worry Vicki. You'll start when you have time. You shouldn't read just because there's a buddy read. You should read when you have time to relax and enjoy the story. :)


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Awe, thanks!

I really appreciate that Ruta Septys brought up less-known historical topics in this book. I'm definitely gonna research more about Wilhelm Gustloff and the Amber Room.


Katriann (annelisreadingroom) | 2192 comments 300 pages

I'm happy that (view spoiler)

Emilia (view spoiler)

It's pretty scary (view spoiler)
