    What a whine fest If I were that hateful, selfish and mean, I certainly wouldn t be writing a book and telling the whole world about it.Her poor, pitiful me attitude got on my last nerve and mostly what I felt while reading this was disgust She just might be the most ungrateful and disrespectful woman ever born.If I had ever talked to my Parents and Grandparents in the manner that she does well, let s just say that I would have spent my entire childhood bloody and bruised.And, if I had ever What a whine fest If I were that hateful, s...

    This book went on far too long it really should have ended when the war did, or at least when the author left England for the Dominican Republic Instead it continued for like 125 pages , with stories of teaching English, conflicts with the author s mother, encounters with other expatriates, etc etc etc And on top of that, the book ends very abruptly, basically So my grandma died and I got married to this one dude I haven t mentioned before now, and we have a couple of kids The End Lo This book went on far too long it really should have ended when the war did, or at least when the author left England for the Dominican Republic Instead it continued for like 125 pages , with stories of teaching English, conflicts with the author s mother, encounters with other expatriates, etc etc etc And on top of that, the book ends very abrupt...

    I had high hopes for this book I found it quite interesting when the book was describing Lore s early life However, as she became an adult the story seemed very disjointed Disappointed.

    Segal calls this a novel, based on her experience, but I suspect it is mostly fact Unsentimental, yet moving the emotions evoked are real, not contrived.She says she did not wish to write another Holocaust Book, and though always There, the Holocaust is not the focus of the narrative Segal does not dwell on Hitler s actions, the family menmbers, friends, aquaintances lost, perhaps because the story is told very believably from the point of view of a child, one who seems to have only known thi Segal calls this a novel, based on her experience, but I suspect it is mostly fact Unsentimental, yet moving the emotions evoked are real, not contrived.She says she did not wish to write another Holocaust Book, and though always There, the Holocaust is not the focus of the narrative Segal does not dwell on Hitler s actions, the family menmbers, friends, aquaintances lost, perhaps because the story is told very believably from the point of view of a child, one who seems to have only known this background noise Even as Lore tries to get her world to make sense, she never plays or acts the Victim....
