Book about world war 2 survivor
The Survivor by Robb WhiteI enjoyed reading the book The Survivor by Robb White because although it was fiction, it was action packed and it felt as if it was a true story. The details were very descriptive. The author made it seem like an event that had happened in his life and he was just retelling it. I defiantly enjoyed the 2nd half of the book more than the first. I say this because the first half of the book was slow and not much happened. Towards the middle and the end, the action picked up and it was more enjoyable to read. It didnt drag much, it always felt as if you were there. On top of it being action filled with lots of suspense, I liked it because things were different in that time than they are today. The author, Robb White was actually in the navy in World War II. I think this helped him write the story because he was alive in that time period so it really makes the readers think about how it was back then. Although the first part of the story was slow I think it might have been necessary. My reasoning for this is because it built up suspense on where Adam was going to end up going. The affect was greater when I learned his mission because i had to read to get to that point. I would recommend this book to people that enjoy exciting and suspenseful books. In conclusion, I liked reading The Survivor by Robb White and I would enjoy reading more books like this. It gave me a sense of what things would have been like to be in the military this long ago and now you were told what to do and you had to choice or say in the situation.

By Gal Beckerman. In August , as soon as Soviet troops swept the Nazis out of eastern Poland, a group of Jewish intellectuals rushed to cities like Lublin and Lodz to begin collecting and recording, scouring for any trace of the still fresh horror that had taken their own loved ones. They wanted evidence. Among them was Nachman Blumental, a philologist obsessed with the uses and misuses of language. He had escaped into the Soviet Union and now returned to find that his wife, Maria, and young son, Ariel, had been killed. Places once teeming with Jewish life were gutted. His whole world had effectively vanished.
