    Much has been said about the 1993 Stephen Spielberg Oscar winning movie In 2007, it ranked 8th in the 100 Best American Movies For All Times list I saw it twice in the movie house when it was released I bought copies of it Copies because you know how technology progresses VHS, then VCD, then DVD, then Blue Ray when will this ever stop Every time I bought me a copy, I watched it Every time I watched it, I cried.But surprisingly, I did not cry reading the book, 1982 Thomas Keanally s born 1935 Boo [...]

    I was semi familiar with the Schindler legacy probably seen the film 5 or 6 times Isn t it peculiar that although it is regarded as one of the best biographies films of all time it hardly ever makes it on any person s personal favorites lists Blame the subject matter entirely So this is basically a reading that concentrates most of its attention on all the details that Steven Spielberg failed to bring to the screen Because that inevitably occurs with all adaptations.Well, this is almost an encyc [...]

    Certain people you know who you are were suggesting the other day that no one actually reads Thomas Keneally Well, I notice surprisingly few reviews here, so maybe the accusation has some substance At any rate, I did read the book, and really liked it.Quite apart from anything else, it s an inspiring true story, which the author tells well But the thing I ve thought about most is what it says about the nature of good and evil At the beginning of the story, Schindler is by no stretch of the imagi [...]

    Schindler s Ark Schindler s List, Thomas Keneally 1935 Schindler s Ark released in America as Schindler s List is a Booker Prize winning historical fiction novel published in 1982 by Australian novelist Thomas Keneally, which was later adapted into the highly successful movie Schindler s List directed by Steven Spielberg The United States version of the book was called Schindler s List from the beginning it was later re issued in Commonwealth countries under that name as well The novel was also [...]

    The list is an absolute good The list is life All around its cramped margins lies the gulf The story behind the book which brought the story of Oskar Schindler to the world is almost as interesting as the story of Schindler himself In October 1980, Thomas Keneally already an established and successful Australian author found himself looking for a new briefcase at the end of his book tour in southern California, the last stop before returning home to Sydney Fate led him to a luggage store owned b [...]

    This is a wonderful book and a wonderful story, everyone should know what oskar schindler did for Jews in WW2 However, this book was very hard to read, like reading a research paper Pfefferberg basically begged Keneally for an hour to write a book because of that the first half of this book was very forced i felt like he didnt want to write this, that his heart wasnt in this, Toward the middle of the book i flowed a little but not until the last 8 10 chapters did it start to be easier to read T [...]

    Oskar Schindler is a legend for all men, women and children who have crossed his path in the Krakow ghetto, or later in the labor and extermination camps Oskar had taken on the appearance of the god of deliverance, a double sided god according to Greek mythology, a god crippled vices, resourceful, subtly powerful, and can save lives in such a way as effective free.

    This year I m doing a Reading Challenge so I have 26 books with specific subjects that I need to read.Book 5 A non Fiction bookI m really conflicted about this book.I don t like the Holocaust, I don t like these stories about it and most of all I don t like what was done to those poor people.But still I read these book why do I do it to myself This book was really depressing for me, I don t even know what I would have done in a situation like that.The thing is this book was well written, and I l [...]

    The critique of culture is confronted with the last stage in the dialectic of culture and barbarism to write a poem after Auschwitz is barbaric, and that corrodes also the knowledge which expresses why it has become impossible to write poetry today.Theodore W AdornoEncapsulated in quotes such as the above is the pure devastating influence across history of the Jewish Holocaust during World War 2 As an event of magnitude it becomes hard for one to detach themselves from the large picture of upwar [...]

    This was not a light read It was, in fact, a very thought provoking book The author has done very good research and he makes it very clear what is fact and what is supposition I really like that in a historical work The first half of the book was harder to read because it involved the slow, steady slide into the evils of the holocaust It was amazing to watch the Jews being transformed from citizens to substandard citizens and eventually to being seen as less than beasts It all happened gradually [...]

    Schindler s Ark is hands down one of the most inspirational stories I ve ever read The author does a remarkable job at capturing such a powerful time in history, and at capturing Schindler as well As the book points out, Schindler wasn t perfect, he had his flaws, but the atrocities of war opened his eyes and he did something so brave that most people would never be able to imagine Despite being a member of the Nazi Party, he used this position as a guise to secretly save the lives of over a tho [...]

    Schindler s Ark is a brilliant book It really shouldn t count as fiction, I suppose one of the things that I admired about the book is that Keneally was scrupulous in his research Even the dialogue, though obviously fiction, are constructed from conversations that actually took place Keneally does not embellish, he does not fictionalize, he does not fudge details to be cleaner, sadder or happier, romantic or grim which, though good, the movie definitely does It is what it is the ghettos, the m [...]

    28 6 This took me so long to read, not because of its content on which I am reasonably well read and am no longer shocked by the things that were done because of how dense it was It seems to be a peculiar feature of non fiction books that they often tend to have fewer paragraphs, page breaks, or chapters, leaving the reader to deal with many pages completely filled with text with nothing to break it up The end result for me was that a book of this length, which would usually take me a week to re [...]

    Michelle and I gave up on Schindler s List half way through Yes, I know, we re philistines While its historical and ethical value cannot be denied, I would rather read a history book It s just not much in the way of an actual narrative There is very little personality in the characters and way too many disconnected characters and events It reads like a series of anecdotes about different people in the same location, and, worst of all, every page is a bewildering avalanche of names which is so p [...]

    initially I don t know how or why, but in the last two three months I have been reading a lot of stuff about the War period of the 20th Century and I seem to have this impossible to fulfill desire to know and and so much about the Nazi regime and Hitler and the Holocaust I also seem to have a gruesome interest in the dirtiest, bloodiest, cruelest tortures that the Jews or any other ethnic were put through Maybe I need to see a doctor Anyhow, this book was another good reference to the Holocau [...]

    Not an easy book to review or to categorize Is it fiction, history, a bit of both Keneally has clearly taken the historical account and stuck to it fairly closely, but has fictionalised the dialogue It has also been overshadowed by Spileberg s remarkable film Schindler did nothing remarkable before or after the war and without his wartime efforts would have been remembered as a womaniser, drinker and bankrupt However his efforts to save the Jews who worked in his factory and his treatment of the [...]

    This is one of those cases where I watched the movie before reading the book And this is also one of those rare cases where the movie was so much better than the book I think I would have liked the book even less if I had not seen the movie because there were areas in the story that I recognized because of the movie The movie version gave me an image that was dramatic and memorable whereas the book was impersonal, reading like a reference manual.

    I ve never seen the movie, so the story was all new for me I ve read several books of the second world war in the past and seen many documents , so I know the history behind it all quite well.Still, this book went straight into my feelings I can t imagine the horrors these people went through and SURVIVED This book is about Oskar Schindler s bravery and witts, how he managed to save over 1100 jewish prisoners during the holocaust He was no saint in his personal life, and this book stays true to [...]

    This one bridges the gap between reality and fiction in a way matched by few The circumstances of extraordinary cruelty are only equaled by the unimaginable courage it took to defy it It s fortunate that the account is written in such a straightforward and clear manner, for the depth of emotion in some of the scenes described is so vast that any obvious attempt of connecting the reader to the emotions would be trivial, if not horribly superficial and presumptive There need be no high flown words [...]

    Ok I liked this book When I first realized it was a biography, I faltered because those aren t usually my cup of tea And in the first 70p, Oskar Schindler didn t really endear himself to me can you believe I only vaguely knew who he was and I live in Switzerland where we have holocaust survivors visiting our high schools But throughout the book, you realize that he is a flawed man, but he is a man who did all he could to save those he could save, at great personal risk to himself sometimes An or [...]

    I saw the movie and had to read this book, based on a true story It was all there in the book, even the little girl in the red coat Sad, important, heartbreaking, wonderful book that everyone should read On the island where I live Martha s Vineyard they took all the kids in the entire high school to see the movie Took a few days to get everyone in, but they did it If I didn t already love Steven Spielberg, this did it for me forever Timeless.

    Remember that splendid 7 Academy Awards winner movie Schindler s List Imagine that, the book s even better A very detailed and well researched semi biography, written in a very fluid fiction style, and presenting a lesser angel of mercy but a flawed everyday human Schindler, this book is a masterpiece Second reading, still not an easy one My copy is in Romanian a surprinsingly good translation by the way , and still it took forever Though totally worthwhile.

    Que no es un libro agradable de leer est de sobra decirlo es un libro duro, aunque me result menos duro que su adaptaci n cinematogr fica excelente adaptaci n, dicho sea de paso , aunque s lo sea porque me es dif cil imaginar tantas atrocidades y tropel as basadas en hechos reales y vi ndolas en im genes, aparte de cruel, da verdadero escalofr o.Un libro en el que se muestra lo peor y lo mejor del ser humano capaz de los actos m s violentos imaginables y muchos otros inimaginables , pero tambi n [...]

    This was an incredibly written and thought provoking book without over powering the reader The focus of the story on Schindler and the 1100 Jewish people he saved actually makes the Holocaust all the real as you can relate to each individual person rather than being overcome with the shear numbers of people involved.The portrayal of Schindler is well written and doesn t preach to the reader about how great a man he was, it simply describes what he did and how he did it and allows the reader to [...]

    For the most part, I enjoyed this book It did a good job of telling the story of a man who changed the lives of so many, while under their oppressor s noses Unfortunately, throughout the book, it would lapse into these back story areas that felt forced like historical text I know that is what it is, really, but considering that this book states that it is a fiction and a novel , it shouldn t feel that way, in my opinion This book did do a good job at looking at the Nazi occupation, ghettos, and [...]

    A painful testimony of the frailty of human kind, chilling descriptions of torture and abuse and an overwhelming number of stories from the survivors, the lucky ones on Schindler s list The main question remains however why did he do what he did as a book 3 stars.

    Having watched this movie about 5000 times, I ve always wanted to read the book to get in depth information about how everything worked out with Schindler and his behind the scenes dealings so this has been on my to read list for years I assumed it d be good or whatever, but it was actually so good both factually and well written that I learned SOOOO freaking much, not only about Schindler, but about many of the Jews he saved and who later saved him So much of it made me sob Like, the Holocaust [...]
