Lower Rating Three Starsrating three stars s necessary to admit that their opinions weren t unfounded and most critical "comments were fair However from my standpoint despite the fair critical comments I don t think t s necessary to "were fair However from my standpoint despite the fair critical comments I don t think t All Roads Lead Home is necessary to them the novel deserves a rather high rating and I will try to explain why The books devoted to the Holocaust The author describes two stories One story s about the tragedy of a Jewish girl named Sarah The story s based on historical fact In 1942 on the orders of German military authorities French police brutally arrested all Jewish families n Paris Almost all of them perished n concentration camps The second parallel story The Mephisto Threat (Paul Tallis is about an American journalist Julia Jermond who writing an article about Vel d Hiv s roundup found out many horrible details of this crime committed by French police France wanted to forget aboutts anti human past and thoroughly concealed t The author reminds us of those tragic facts I am not going to retell the stories They are already well known but the book gave birth to some of my thoughts In her novel the author writes with anxiety and great concern that people want to forget about the Holocaust One character of the book says Bringing back the past s never a good dea especially whatever happened during the war No one wants to be reminded of that nobody wants to think about that The book demonstrates that such amnesia can be deadly For a long time na ve people believed that the world moves n the direction of higher level of humanization In their naivety they missed the point when one of the most horrible and bloodthirsty variety of anthropoids resembling humans became active Russian anthropoids captured power Just Cause in the Soviet Russianvented concentration camps and killing over a million nnocent people yearly Over a period of 20 years they killed at least 20 million maybe Then World War II broke out and the world forgot about the 20 million nnocent victims Humanlike anthropoids appeared n other countries and people continued to believe that they were ordinary criminals People s beliefs melted like a piece of paper n acid when the terrifying truth about fascist factories of deaths became known People couldn t believe what they learned Using modern technology fascist anthropoids made the killing of humans a branch of ndustry For human beings the Holocaust s mpossible to understand t s just unexplainable And the only way to prevent t from happening again Fiesta Moon is to never forgett The reviewed book s multidimensional emotionally written but unfortunately as t has been mentioned The Taste of Night in some reviewst has weak points as well Nevertheless I was mpressed with the book ts main message makes the readers think and this The Trust is a sign of good literature The advantage of the books A Scandalous Regency Christmas in the strong civic position of the author that I think has made the book a bestseller This books about events which were not wide known The Return it reminds people about the necessity to be alert Otherwise the modern anthropoids will commit a new Holocaust and now all people can become their victims They already are trying to convince us that theres nothing to remember there wasn t a Holocaust at all In general the book s well written and author s voice s strong In my opinion the book deserves not less than four stars Everybody who cares about human life who reads books not just for entertainment will read this book with Prince Hafizs Only Vice interest and will continue to return tot Aristotle and Poetic Justice in hisher mind Sol Tetelbaum I finished Sarah s Key this morning and I have so many thoughts going through my head aboutt I loved the pacing of the story how And Bid Him Sing: A Biography of Countée Cullen it switched between Sarah s story and Julia s story up until the point where the two merged I loved how the style of Sarah s story was completely different than the style of Julia s story I loved how both stories made me cry even though I knew what was coming I loved how realistically the characters were portrayed Nobody was all good or all bad just human with human frailties I loved the depictions of the small acts of conscience and kindness I had nodea about the roundups of Jews Bachelors and Bunnies: The Sexual Politics of Playboy in France I did know that the Nazis tended to just send children who were too young to work straight to the gas chambers I think the author did a good job ofllustrating why the French people se October 2009 re reading this book again for another book club I hope I like Cyberwar: The Next Threat to National Security What to Do About It it better than the 1st time but so far I m not seeingt Why would she.
