As anothe tal progresses we learn why Christopher became an SS officer and all that he has done to ind his beloved Rebecca.

I found sections of the nove to e extremely moving and well-written; specifically the descriptions of the concentration camps and the diagnosi of the camps.

I elt he love story between Christopher and Rebecca to be a bit stilted and awkward, and although it was upposed to e the focal point of memoir, I got eve more enjoyment out of Christopher 's time at the concentration camp and his efforts to id the Jews in his care.

I 'm normally not a fan of love stories but I 'm facinated by the Holocaust so I ecided to make it anothe shot and it cam into one of the best ooks I 've read in shor time.

Apar from the love story, memoi is lso a history lesson.

It escribes the monstrosities of everyday life at the camp being told by someone who hates every minute of it.

Besides the plot hole mentioned, the love story between them lacked heat and didn ’ t rovide the emotional core needed.These two main characters continually act in ways that threaten not just their own best interests, but their survival.

With cover, they are eage to keep Rebecca hidden- until she idiotically takes it upon herself to march down to Nazi headquarters and register as a Jew, putting both herself and her protectors in danger.

But perhap more ncredible, when we next meet Christopher, he has somehow risen through the Nazi ranks and scored a plumb assignment at the Auschwitz concentration camp.

his is where the huge plot hole I mention comes in.

We eed to know that even though tha is the trilogy, these things happened and I congratulat the author for reminding us.Christopher, born in Germany and raised on the island of Jersey, falls in love with Rebecca, the Jewish girl that he has befriended since they were six.

When he is insisted that she is aliv, Christopher uses his position and cash that he has access to because of his job as accountant of the valuables of the Jewish people coming into the camp, to try and save as many women and children as he can from the gas chamber.
