I saw the movie (on Netflix) before I read the book. 99% of the time the book is way, way better than the movie, so if possible I always see the movie first, so I can enjoy it for what it is, and then read the book to enjoy it more. This time I would say the book and movie are about equal. The book has more detail, more background, more insight into Julia's marriage. When there are discrepancies between book and movie, the movie actually tightens the plot, cuts down the rambling end, removes the swearing (there's not much of that to begin with), and keeps it down to a PG13. I highly recommend both book and movie.

This book floats between past and present, something I really enjoy in a story. Unfortunately, I disliked EVERYBODY in the present story. But the past made up for it.

Not only did they willingly, almost gratefully, give them the requested adults, thinking it would please the Nazis, they threw in the children...and this is a story that needed telling...

Great book! The cover pictured on website is not accurate. The cover is a more updated & colorful. This was also made into a movie, but the movie did not come close to being as good as the book.

Really hard to say how much I "liked" or "loved" this book, since I always find it so extremely painful reading anything about Nazi Germany, or, in this case, I'll loosely say "Nazi France." I'm sorry if that offends, but at least as this episode is concerned the only difference is the language being spoken. Anyway, definitely one of the most intense books ever--had to read it in small bits, but had to continue. BTW, if you can make it through this, you'll find the move much more tolerable.
