    Kindle arnepistol.co ✓ Love and Treasure PDF Õ Love and Kindle - love download, treasure pdf, Love and epub, Love and Treasure KindleThe subjects s and themes of this book are usually winners for me WW11 art theft and victims and survivors of the holocaust This book had all of these and but ended up disappointing me greatly There are three separate sections The first part engaged me and I cared about the main characters and the subject matter So far so good However it was downhill from there The madcap action of Part 2 was frankly unbelievable But it was still a readable 3 star book Part 3 narrated by a parody of a psychoanalyst was so ludicrous and strayed so far from from the main themes and characters that I lost all interest in the book We learned at great length about 2 of the characters introduced in the earlier parts of the book but we already knew 90% of their story And introducing a ridiculous caricature of a psychoanalyst to tell t

    Kindle arnepistol.co ✓ Love and Treasure PDF Õ Love and Kindle - love download, treasure pdf, Love and epub, Love and Treasure KindleI've always been intrigued by Ayelet Waldman I've read several of her books and usually wanted to like them than I eventually did So I was really happy to see her step up into a new realm and go for something very different It's perhaps her most successful novel tooIf you're like me you've read a lot of WWII novels a lot of holocaust novels and sometimes I avoid them because there have already been so many But I love the approach Waldman takes It's not about either the war or the holocaust directly but the several connected stories in different time periods center around the Hungarian Gold Train a shipment of valuable property once owned by the Jews of Hungary and confiscated by the government After the war the US guards the property specifically under the guard of Jack one of the central characters of the novel Also featured in the stories are Natalie Jack's

    Kindle arnepistol.co ✓ Love and Treasure PDF Õ Love and Kindle - love download, treasure pdf, Love and epub, Love and Treasure KindleI have read a fair number of books about WWII and the Holocaust but I have never read anything about The Hungarian Gold Train In fact I didn't know anything about it Ayelet Waldman has educated me by telling this story about the Hungarian Jews during and after the war and what happens to their possessions that were taken from them Then she reveals some things that I never really knew with regard to how the Allies yes the Allies including the US took these stolen possessions and a harder to face fact about how some of the Displaced Persons the holocaust survivors were treated after the war Captain Jack Wiseman is charged with managing the contents of the train after it arrived near Salzburg He falls in love with a young woman from Hungary who has lost her family her home and then he loses her to Israel He takes a pendant from a box of jewelry that was confiscated from t

    Kindle arnepistol.co ✓ Love and Treasure PDF Õ Love and Kindle - love download, treasure pdf, Love and epub, Love and Treasure KindleAs a piece of historical fiction particularly one that deals with lesser discussed aspects of history related to WWII this is an impressive book On the other hand as a piece of original fiction which simply serves as a worthwhile read in itself history interests aside I'm less comfortable recommending itMy largest concern with the book is that it seems incredibly derivative of The White Hotel though Waldman's work is far concerned with art The structure especially r

    Kindle arnepistol.co ✓ Love and Treasure PDF Õ Love and Kindle - love download, treasure pdf, Love and epub, Love and Treasure KindleI only picked this up because of Ayelet Waldman's snit fit at not being included in the NY times Notable books of the year I don't know why I do this because it never works out for me see also James Wood's pout about The Emperor's Children This is probably OK if you need something easy but still want to feel intelligent I mean look the main character's name is Jack Wiseman And he is a Wise Man That's how literature works right? No It's fine if that's what you're into but it damn sure isn't notable
