5.0 out of 5 stars Thrill from start to finish!!!, February 23, 2011
This review is from: Once We Were Brothers (Paperback)
I am infamous for picking up a novel and quickly diverting my attention to something else. This book, however, had me captivated from the moment I opened it. There wasn't a moment I saw myself at a good stopping point. The book flows remarkably. These words quickly transformed into vivid imagery that has resonated since I finished it over a year ago. This gorgeous painting of literature deeply demonstrates a holocaust survivor's profound triumph through unspeakable tragedy, as well as his undying quest for justice. Though the novel recreates world war 2 poland through Ben Solomon's retelling, it picks up, without a hiccup, to near present day Chicago. Loved it and I'm reading it again now. Don't be surprised if it ends up in theaters.

I totally agree with this opinion. could have been one of the best books I have ever read.

Then you have no redeeming features as a book reviewer and you are probably connected to the author in some way. It is trash - poorly written - there is no excuse this was printed - and the only reason it was is that his son owns the publishing house - it is terrible.

Hmm. No redeeming features as a book reviewer? What features does one need to read and review a book on Amazon? Meanwhile, look how many people read it and LOVED it. Most every review I read said they couldn't put the book down - including myself. I can't wait to read the next book by this author. Obviously most people here don't agree with you. You have the right to your opinion, but I have to wonder why you are so angry about it.
