    Kindle Edition ↠ Gerta MOBI â gerta book, GertaGerta MOBIHaving read countless historical fiction novels, I was instantly intrigued by “Gerta’s” premise and wow, it certainly didn’t disappoint! The writing was imaginative and lyrical, instantly transporting me into a war-ravaged world where hatred and violence penetrate the very air Gerta breathes and where one’s nationality can become a death sentence, and it matters not whether this particular person was a collaborator or someone simply trying to live their life, just like Gerta. What I also appreciated was how Gerta’s inner conflict was presented: born to a Czech mother and a German father, she was seemingly torn between two worlds, a child of two different, warring nations and cultures, condemned no matter what, disdained for her

    Kindle Edition ↠ Gerta MOBI â gerta book, GertaGerta MOBIThe story and the prose felt a little simple and sentimental to me. There is so much already written about WWII and its immediate aftermath that I feel fiction needs to surpass what has come before to justify itself. The other issue I struggle with is that fiction about this era seems a bit derivative always when compared with fiction written by those who lived through these times. We might be in a historical space where we’re too close to the era, and we’re not yet far enough away in years for something really new to be written about it. So what gets written feels sincere to me but also a bit plodding. I felt the same way about “The Narrow Road to the Deep North” and “All the Light We Cannot See” so the book will probably appeal widely.

    The book begins with a gripping scene of a fictionalized account of what happened on the Czechoslovakian Death March after World War II. Many of German ancestry, even if it went back a long way, were forced to leave what they considered home because of their family’s history. Czechoslovakia was Gerta’s only home. She was the daughter of a Czech mother and Hitler-loving German father, an innocent caught up in the brutal tides of history through no fault of

    Read until the end because I needed to find out how it end, but it was painful. To many unfinished stories, jumped around to much. Confusing at times.

    Kindle Edition ↠ Gerta MOBI â gerta book, GertaGerta MOBII was interested in reading about a part of post-WW2 history I had not heard of before, but this whole story was just relentlessly depressing from start to finish, even years beyond the initial action (perhaps I should have expected that, knowing something of the history of that part of the world). I also struggled with the narrative style, which seemed a bit all over the place.

    While there is empathy for German people such as Greta, it should never overshadow the tragedy of the Jewish people who suffered in greater number in the ovens of extinction a more final solution by a race who,s visions of superiority led them to such evil .
