Book Review: The Tattooist of Auschwitz

he Story of Lale Sokolov is sadly not based on fiction, so I cannot in any capacity critique the story, only the storytelling. I was amazed by Lale’s ability to survive and the way he put himself at risk to take care of others. This story showed how even in the worst imaginable conditions hope could be found, friendships could be made and lives can be saved. The love story was of course very special and beautiful especially as its true. However, I didn't find myself emotionally affected until the authors note where we learn what happened to Lale and Gita after the war.

Book Review: The Binding

My first impression of this novel was the beautiful cover! It is an absolutely stunning book, and it gets even better under the dust jacket showcasing a gold gilded, traditionally bound book. The plot was well executed and I found the jumps in time and point of view changes refreshing without being confusing. The story itself was not what I expected from the blurb.
