Number The Stars: By Lois Lowry
Number The Stars is a great work of historical fiction by author Lois Lowry, who writes about one of the most traumatic periods during the World War II, the Holocaust.
Through the eyes of a ten-year-old, Annemarie, who’s Jewish best friend’s life is in danger, the reader learns about the Nazi’s brutal campaign of torturing the Jewish population.
It’s an informative read which conveys true facts and sufferings of the people living during those times, through a gripping story-line.
Though being a heart-breaking read, the story helped me understand the hardship suffered by the Jewish and many others such as Annemarie, who despite being in a safe situation put their lives in danger to ensure the protection of their loved ones, as well as made me realized how privileged and grateful I am to be living in times like these.
A moving novel with an important message.
Shadow: By Michael Morpurgo
Shadow is a touching story revolving around a few complicated yet compassionate creatures, fighting against the most unfortunate events faced by mankind.
This book was probably the first that took me less than 2 weeks to finish, in fact I finished it in just 2 days so I can assure you that it will keep you turning pages.
Set during war somewhere in the country of Afghanistan, this book moves around a young boy; Aman, who has never needed a friend more than he does now. And within a short time, a Springer Spaniel appears in front of his home, as a guiding light and a constant companion who might just lead him out of the horrific misery of a life he’s leading, and take him somewhere safe, where Aman can finally be happy.
But how will they be able escape this frightening reality? How far can they go while the world around them continues to become a more dangerous place? And will they stay together or part on this whirlwind of a journey.
This book is perfect for an animal lover and is based on a heart-warming relationship between man and dog. A beautiful story and a stirring read. Though warning, you might shed a few tears.
Suffused with the warmth of Morpugo’s words and the terrible truth about humanity and war, this is a story about love, hope and daring.
