I'm just about to read this so there will be a further journal entry when I get part way thru! The back cover reads "Anne Karpf's parents survived the Nazi Holocaust. Her mother, a concert pianist and soloist with the Berlin Philharmonic when she was eighteen years old, was a survivor of Plaszow and Auschwitz concentration camps; her father survived several Russian labour camps. When they came to Britain in 1947, their pasts came with them.

In this thought-provoking and moving book, Anne Karpf explores the profound impact of her parents' wartime experiences on her daily life. Combining a gripping account of her parents' survival, a sharp examination of the history of British attitudes to Jews and to the Holocaust, and turning an often wryly comic eye on the parent-child struggle, The War After is a fascinating and deeply touching story".

Well, next entry will tell you how its going!

This book took me ages to read, I would have said that it is only of average size also. Anne's subject matter is of interest and her writing style is nice. There are parts in this book that had me finding it hard to put the book down but too many parts that could not not hold my interest. I did finish it however I am glad that I did.
