Erotischer Roman its headed but that definitely did not take away from the reading experience whatsoeverMy favourite thing about Supetys novels s that even with these bleak and horrific circumstances the characters are n we still see the goodness of humanity and how the human spirit carries on Dark Alchemy (Dark Alchemy, in even the most dire of situations I cried for half an hour after reading this book and I knowt s one that will stay with meI had absolutely no dea about this tragedy before I read this book and was shocked Die fremde Stadt: Breslau nach 1945 it was not well known Even though the charactersn this book are fictional you are reminded that this was a real event n which 9000 people over half of which were children lost their lives n one night I urge you all to pick this book up and read t so at last their story can be heard.

Tragic Event Ruth Sevent Ruth S t to life beautifully The juxtaposition between characters makes t very compelling This book moved me to tears Highly recommend I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book It s written n an original way and I felt that I knew each of the four main characters by the end of the story The events seemed like a first Hand Account And Rang account and rang as I supposed they would since the author s the daughter of Lithuanian refugees I am currently reading another of Ruta Sepetys novels Great bookinteresting characters which are explained Witchcraft for Tomorrow in chapters throughout the book good to learn about this true story and very upsetting about the huge loss of human life As a teacher and a parent I have ample opportunity to observe uite how ruthlessly children can tellt how t s even my one year old son has learnt to roll his eyes at me However The Wedding Redux in my relatively sheltered life such a tendencys generally played out for comic effect and I have never really pondered how Rolling Thunder it might take a darker turnn turbulent times That s until I read Ruta Sepetys Carnegie Medal winner Salt to the SeaIn a near lyrical style Sepetys tells the tragic tale of four children fleeing Stalin s Red Army through Nazi territory hoping to find salvation on board an evacuation ship The story s told from the viewpoints of the four main characters Joanna Emilia Florian and Alfred each haunted by some concoction of fear fate shame and guilt from their past The characters feel painfully real brought to life with a string of drip fed details and subtle nteractions It s how these young souls try to come to terms with and explain the atrocities of an adult world that lend the words their powerThe personalities are as complex as the dark subject matter demands for example Alfred a devout Nazi Bootie and the Beast is easy to mock and hate It was not until after finishing the book that I remembered his young age and realised that hes simply a lonely and troubled boy swept up by the wave of hatred that devoured much of Europe at the time While this might not lead to forgiveness t must surely lend tself to understanding Aside from this main cast the supporting characters are just as nvolving with the love that develops between Heinz the shoe poet and Klaus the wandering boy often providing a brief respite from the lingering sense of doomThe book s split The Art of Mary Beth Edelson into a series of very short chapters some stretching to only one line However what they lackn length they each make up for with the strength of their emotional gut shots conspiring by the end to leave you feeling pummelled and punch drunk The often soft and gentle prose seems almost out of place when describing such bleak scenes and emotions but somehow makes them all the affectingThe pacing of the book s very mpressive It starts off slowly and I must admit that having read the superb Carnegie contenders The Bone Sparrow and The Smell of Other People s Houses I Motivational Perspectives on Chronic Pain initially wondered howt had managed to beat them to the prize However as the pages flicked over I realised how effective the book was at evoking the tense monotony and boredom of war the characters are constantly looking over their shoulders but with little to actually do other than trudge onwards and occasionally avert their eyes from the world s ass. BRAND NEW Exactly same ISBN Orted horrors That being said when the final action kicks off the ntensity of t None Like Him: 10 Ways God Is Different from Us (and Why That's a Good Thing) is enough to leave you dizzy I read the final 100 pagesn a single stressful sittingDespite being a children s book I cannot think of another text that so matter of factly and brutally lays bare the desperation of war Some of the scenes Puta involving children at the port left me so overwhelmed with disgust I had to stop reading to compose myself the only other book ever to make me do thats American Psycho by Brett Easton Ellis This 伝説の勇者の伝説 5 出来心の後始末 is anmportant story to tell based on an unbelievably forgotten history of a real life event but Killer Games its not an easy one to hear The book s like brand new perfect It s a great read I listened to t on audible and then purchased the book as a gift for a friend Wow what a fantastic read I loved the writing style and how we got to know the characters n bitesize pieces which I found really engaging I read the last few pages 3 times just to ensure I captured everythingI knew nothing about this huge Maritime disaster but will definitely research t After reading Sepety s Between Shades and Out of the Easy a couple of years ago I have literally been counting down the months to this book s release and I can confidently say Cocksure it did not disappoint Setn the winter of 1945 Sepety s third novel shows the closing months of WWII from an unfamiliar perspective the plight of East Prussia an ancient German kingdom now part of northern Poland during the Soviet advance across Europe as the Nazi s began to lose footing n the East The descriptions of the cold the fear the hunger and the horror of that
Time Are Poignantly Described By Sepetys Inare poignantly described by Sepetys n usual harrowing yet gripping styleAs with her two previous novels the protagonists are all teenagers though the main difference with Salt to the Sea Porto Bello Gold is thatt has four main characters nstead of one each from a very different background one s German one Lithuanian one Prussian and one Polish offering divergent and lluminating perspectives of what WWII did to each of these nations The narration style switches between the first person perspective of each of the four characters which I found at first slightly disorienting but once the story gripped me I didn t even noticeAlthough the book s advertised as being primarily about the disaster that befell the Wilhelm Gustloff the majority of the book takes place within Prussia showing the plight of the fleeing refugees the ship Mein Erster Mörder is the setting for the book s powerful climax I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone It s historically accuratet s beautifully written and fast paced and the characters as ever with Sepetys are closely drawn and consistently believableThe only reason I decided to give Salt to the Sea four starts nstead of five s
