I liked the mystery whether Dr. Kelno, an eminent surgeon living in England post WWII, did or did not do experiments on concentration camp victims. To some he was a humanist, trying to save lives in the camps, to others, he was a monster performing experiments on camp inmates. Along comes Alexander Cady, a writer who has a paragraph in his new book about Dr. Kelno's experiments. The doctor decides to sue Cady and his publisher for damages to his reputation. The book gives some interesting insights into England's judicial system. I enjoyed the book except for some of the last third where Cady leaves his wild side behind and becomes a crusader. It is then that Cady's dialogue becomes preachy and stilted. Too big of a shift and also annoying. Otherwise, a fine book.

I read this book for the first time as a young teenager. It was one of two Uris books that started me into reading everything he wrote.

The book itself is short, it was a small paperback and I read it within a few hours.

The novel was written a very long time ago...we have already had several decades of people who deny that the horrors of WW2 ever happened. For me, it was a personal affirmation.

Do you know what it's like to be 10,11,12,13 or 14 years old, and hear your mother crying in the night? Not once, not twice, but frequently. I know!

I may never read this book again...it already has given me my lesson in life.

I find Uris a very powerful writer. This was a fine example of his work.

QB VII has an interesting story line with well-drawn characters. However, I found it more than a bit self-indulgent, particularly in light of the back story to it. The details of the English courts were more than I cared to read, with so many places and characters thrown in that it became difficult to follow. Worth reading, but not one of my favorite books, by a long shot.
