Almost Autumn is one of those books that I couldn't give a 4 or 5 to, but I would recommend. It was a very good book. I just had a hard time staying interested and I think that was because of the way it was written, in this case translated, because it was originally written in Norwegian.
The brutality and the unbelievable horror of the Holocaust never fails to make one sick, right? And it is especially powerfully awful when the characters just don't understand yet what is going on, just how evil things are going to be. In this book we get a look at the treatment of the Jews in Norway, about which I knew nothing.
What's Going On Here?
There are SO MANY wonderful book review blogs out there and I can't compete with them, that is for sure. So this is not a book review blog. This is just a way for me to organize what I have read so that I can be better at matching the right book to the right person. The blog title comes from the brilliant mind of the most talented woman who ever lived, Ms. Judy Garland. The full quote is, "Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of someone else." That is what I hope to do here and in ever aspect of my life.
