أعتقد أنني أود حقًا رؤية وتجربة هذه الغرف. لقد لاحظت أنك ترى بعض أجهزة كمبيوتر apple تظهر فقط في بعض الصور - لا أهتم برموز وضعك / ألعابك (على الرغم من أنني أرغب في الحصول على جهاز mac / iphone ['أنا أحب اللعب])!
This was an am zing book. A new approach to an old topic. The point of view of the narrator was a cool twist. Seeing WW2 through a German childs eyes in Germany just gave new insight into the tragedies that everybody suffers in a war. I'd recommend this to anybody (teen and older). Just be ready for a book that will keep you reading from beginning to end.
Based on the blurb about this book - I expected to "learn/understand" something about dating outside of one's race, but I was disappointed in this debut novel. It seemed that the author wanted to accomplish too much with this one book - and would make a stereotype statement and then made the characters fit that statement instead of the reader learning this through the action of the characters. The transition between the chapters was abrupt at time and as you were settling in on a character and their situation - it switches up I also thought that the secondary characters could have been more effectively used to enhance the storyline It seems that all dialogue between the characters related to "race" and/or why dating within/outside ones race - this got really tiring - as we did not really learn anything else about the characters I also found the story outcome pretty predictable While this is a topic that is frequently discussed - I thought the author would have best served to present this volume of material in a non-fiction format or to do this as a series of fiction novels where the reader could get to know the characters better and be able to present the issues more deeply than just a "statement."
One of those books i hold dear in my heart...to think that those characters can't never go out of my mind even after the pages are no more...
