I selected this book on 10/25/15 from The Book Thing of Baltimore whose mission is to put unwanted books into the hands of those who want them. Thank you very much!

This is one of 125 books that I brought home from The Book Thing that day. I made that visit with a friend of mine from Catonsville, Maryland, and her cousin from New Hampshire. Needless to say, I came home with the largest haul! :)

Journal Entry 4 by wingSqueakyChuwing at Rockville, Maryland USA on Wednesday, November 23, 2016

9 out of 10

This is very sad and beautiful story about Daniel, the survivor of a Nazi death camp and the younger of two sons who was left alone by a choice his father made. Later, after being rescued and taken to Kibbutz Gilad by Yoram, Daniel tries to reconcile the fact that his dad also survived the death camp.

At first I felt that this story was not speaking to me because it seemed that the narrator told the story rather than letting the story tell itself. Later, I became very wrapped up in the story because I was intrigued by Daniel's persistent inability to form permanent attachments to others and his continued aloofness with his father.

Most of the book was going back and forth between Daniel's life after the war and Daniel's father declining with advanced lung cancer. Not a book of joy, this novel is, however, a look at a deep psychological wound carried by one person throughout his life.
