If I could, I would give this book 6 stars. This is what I keep looking for. A story that has it all. This story spans across religions, societies, times and what not. This talk about an era when Jews suffered the worst times in the history of the world. The implications of the events and actions against them are not truly understood through the history books. They come out in their true form only through the lives of people who would have or could have lived those times. No amount of appreciation of those times is enough. To help you relive those times is where the mastery of the author lies and I believe that the author has written an outstanding story of the same.
This will take you through many emotions and feelings. On one hand, you will feel repulsed by the acts of terror and one the other, you will feel humbled by the brotherhood of people. This book is the discovery of humanity. Historical fiction is the most difficult to write about and carry through as there will always be some loose ends or some situations which may be unexplained. But that is the handicap of the genre. The more the author tries to delve into details in historical fictions, the more the story can get convulsed. Therefore it is essential to balance it out and that is done brilliantly in the book.
A must read for all interested in the old times.
