I decided to purchase this review because I know they do an excellent job highlighting the good and bad of the books they review. The review highlighted the book as being good for thriller fans who enjoy a more intellectual approach to psychopathic killers, which I found particularly interesting, as I didn’t get that feel at all from other website reviews. That is what sets Expert Book Reviews apart. They can perfectly identify who would like a book, even when the reader themselves are in doubt. Contrary to my suspicions, the part of the book that was most highlighted as ‘bad’ was mostly about the format. Expert Book Reviews says a large portion of the book is set up, however that is true in many of the books I typically read, so that doesn’t bother me. This review squashed my fears of the plot line being too busy, and to the joy of my coworker, convinced me to purchase Gone Girl.
I love being able to read the other side of the story because it reminds me that it was a sick man and sick people who followed Hitler and that regular folks were stuck there without much they could do. I know of people who also had family member survive due to the help of righteous people who risked their lives to do the right thing.
I need to be reminded that any kind of mass hate it as damaging to the person who feels it, as the target of it. It was an ugly time and it appears we humans have still not learned to stop killing.
I also appreciated insights based on fact of the treatment of slaves, of really well developed characters who were credible. even those who were fictitious. It is interesting, I think, that in their own way female slave owners were also slaves within the mores of their society.
I am really shocked that Amazon has to resort to cheating customers in this manner. A book review pamphlet should not be listed as a book.
