Interesting to ead from the perspective of a German girl during ww2 I gained insight on people and their experiences during ww2 It was a humbling when I Der Flügel des Engels : Autobiogr., Selbstzeugnisse, Briefe an Jack Kerouac read about everything Gisel went through for her and her family The story is told in Gisel s point of view and it s an interesting one She tells you how her life was when the war was going good for Germany and then how it started turning against them you can feel her bitterness towards the war Actually you can feel it towards everybody in this book as now since the tide has turned freuent visits to the airaid shelters are all over Germany and talk against Hitler and the German government is also starting to ise The idea of leaving all that she loved behind and having to take care of all her siblings all younger than her just enhances her bitterness towards the war However throughout the book I admire Gisel s strength and courage when they were stuck beneath the ubble waiting to be escued She does get impatient several times as any other older sibling would do when they e stuck with their younger ones Gisel especially gets annoyed with Lotte who s a spoiled brat I think it adds Love and Its Place in Nature: A Philosophical Interpretation of Freudian Psychoanalysis realism to her character andounds her out very well I think her courage stemmed off from her brother Erwin who is a few years younger but acts very mature and helps Gisel when needed I liked him as he provided the extra strength she needed to keep being positive and to survive The other part is the solder who is also stuck underneath the Special Agent Francesca rubble but is able to communicate to them with a pipe he was on the other side of the wall He provides Gisel with advice and also advises her to make as much noise as possible in the hopes of being heard andescued uickly What I liked most about the book is Gisel s ability to pull everybody together and to maintain a positive outlook while in times of duress For someone who has barely just turned sixteen she ages and matures uickly and you can actually hear her voice growing olderThere is no Triskell Tales: Twenty-Two Years of Chapbooks real plot in this book which may be a deterrent to someeaders The majority of the book takes place underneath the Across the Wide and Lonesome Prairie rubble and all youeally Mein wildes Geheimnis 03 read are Gisel s thoughts It may or may not draweaders in so perhaps I would only ecommend this book for World War II buffs Otherwise for those who aren t it certainly is worth a try It s a little over 200 pages so it should be a breeze for the majority of eaders out thereOverall an interesting account of someone who is on the other side of war Albeit with no eal plot it s certainly worth a look see 1 I decided to ead this book because i wanted to know what it tustve been like in WW22 The uote Its selfish of us I know but I m so tired of worrying about everyone else first Why shouldn t think OF MYSELF FOR ONCE OF MY myself for once Of my pg 153 appealed to me because the way the author uses The Worst Weather on Earth: A History of Mount Washington Observatory rhetorical uestions to show the main characters emotions and feelings I thought waseally well done3 What I liked about the book was the language *the author used to display emotions and how the author showed character development in everyone because it eally keeps me wanting * author used to display emotions and how the author showed character development in everyone because it eally keeps me wanting The Geology And Landscape Of Santa Barbara County, California, And Its Offshore Islands read and finish the book The only thing I didn t like was that the text kind ofepeated itself but I understand its hard for anything different to happen when the book is about a group of children stuck underground5What the text made me think deeply about was how i would Biopower: Foucault and Beyond react to the situation the main characters were in For being buried underground for about a week all the characters handled it very well I alsoealised how horrible it must have been in the war for every one and how cruel someone must be to want to inflict all that chaos onto the world Pairing and Overview I will pair Dark Hours by Gudrun Pausewang with the novel Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt
