Adult communication is with a dying soldier buried on the other side of the wall who offers guidance on how to surviveTold as a grandmothers birthday gift to her year old granddaughter Dark Hours is a suspenseful and dramatic novel about the injustice of war its impact on ordinary people and the hope that resonates in the human so. 1 I decided to read this book because i wanted to know what it tustve been like in WW22 The uote Its selfish of us I know but I'm so tired of worrying about everyone else first Why shouldn't think of myself for once Of my thirst pg 153 appealed to me because the way the author uses rhetorical uestions to show the main characters emotions and feelings I thought was really well done3 What I liked about the book was the language the author used to display emotions and how the author showed character development in everyone because it really keeps me wanting to read and finish the book The only thing I didn't like was that the text kind of repeated itself but I understand its hard for anything different to happen when the book is about a group of children stuck underground5What the text made me think deeply about was how i would react to the situation the main characters were in For being buried underground for about a week all the characters handled it very well I also realised how horrible it must have been in the war for every one and how cruel someone must be to want to inflict all that chaos onto the world


ÜberlebenEntombed following a bombing raid at the close of World War II three children struggle to surviveOn Gisel's th birthday her world like the war effort begins to crumble Her father is away serving in the German army when the advancing Allies force the rest of the family to flee their home Gisel her younger brothers and their pregnant. I'd have given this book 5 stars except for one thing The story is told from the point of view of a German girl living with her family in Silesia Poland during World War II When the Russians begin to invade and drive out the Germans Gisel and her family must flee back to Germany On their way to Dresden she and her brothers are separated from their mother and grandmother and end up trapped in a bombed out air raid shelter Now in the story she tells of being in the Nazi Youth and of her parents' loyalty to Hitler Given that in one place the author has Gisel thinking about the British Russians and Americans not as enemies but as victims just like her and in another place she has Gisel thinking that though the Allies have done awful things to the Germans the Germans have done just as many terrible things to the enemies Somehow those two interjections just didn't flow with the rest of the story and seemed to be placed there to create a balanced view of the war I don't think a child who had been brought up in such a home would have thought of those things Pausewang did include an introduction giving background information on the war and stating her view that the Germans should never have allowed Hitler to have that much power I think the introduction should have sufficed Aside from that the story was very suspenseful I really couldn't put it down I particularly liked how the author framed the story between two letters and told what happened to the characters after the story ended An excellent translation by John Brownjohn highly recommended for another view of World War II
