Didn’t feel quite right with a food reference for this book! Read this last month with ! The story was great but the writing was very choppy and flat. All 3 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️ are for the story of Lali (correct spelling) and Gita Sokolov but this felt like a sanitized telling of some of the atrocities that happened at Auschwitz-Birkenau. I think I heard this was supposed to be a screenplay and I can see it more as a screenplay and definitely not a novel. Unfortunate because the underlying true story is really beautiful and remarkable. 💙

  1. I’ve read similar comments about this before. You have confirmed my decision to pass on this book! I’ll look for the movie!

  2. I read part of it and want to pick it up again. But I had the same feeling—it was a lovely story but felt sanitized.

  3. Everyone I know as well as myself labeled it a page turner. The negative comments here are not in the majority. I’m sad that the beautiful and heartbreaking story is diminished here because of your writing style preferences.

  4. I listened to this one and loved it. It really lent itself well to audio and I could definitely see it as a movie!

  5. Interesting. I liked it and have recommended to some of my 8th graders who were really into that time period after our unit.

  6. I wanted to read this but came across the news where Auschwitz memorial claimed that there are numerous factual errors and misinformation in the book.

  7. Great review. I totally agree with what you said and appreciate the correct spelling of Lali’s name!
