Was a pretty good read until it started to get religious in the last quarter.

Fast-paced, historical thriller that pulled me in and wouldn't let go. Sadly, this book is populated with mostly 1-dimensional characters and lots of timely coincidences, which ultimately weakened the story for me. But, if you want a fast, thrilling read, you could do much worse.

Great author. The story is suspenseful and extremely well done. Although this is an historical fiction novel it reads like a true story. Captivating indeed!

My first time reading anything by this author. I extremely enjoyed this book, a real page turner.

NYPL Staff Pick
Two individual stories are impacted and dangerously connected as Jean-Luc, a pastor from a small countryside village in Nazi-controlled France convicted of harboring Jews, and Jacob, a Jewish young adult from Germany who joins a resistance movement, join forces to survive and escape the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp to expose the unchecked atrocities and mass murder to the world.

So good! First historical fiction read. my husband and I each read it in a few days because we were so captivated!

Very good read about a fictional story of escaping from Auschwitz. A page turner.

Very basic adventure story, with almost no character development and some truly unrealistic dialogue. The "hero", Jacob Weisz, was very whiny and immature. Meh.
