    review Ë All That I Am All That I AmA book where the characters and the plot lacked and the constant time shifts became irritating as the book went on This is a story based on mostly real characters and while I was a little interested in their lives the structure of the story was poor and uite frustrating to read This should have been my perfect fit but lacked on uite a few levels for me The characters didn't feel real even though its based on real people and I think this for me was down to the author fictionalising conversations between these people and I just couldn't understand what was fact and what was fiction until the end and even then I felt it was too little too late The Novel is based on the true story of some of these people who opposed the Nazis rise to power and when in exile they tried to warn the World to the evils that Hitler and the Nazi Party was going to inflict on Jewish comm

    review Ë All That I Am All That I AmNone of us teacher or taught realised how an imagined life can sustain you as a possibility a hope and remain just that Like parallel train tracks it runs alongside but will never meet the life you are livingThis book took me absolutely ages to get into and I have no idea why You know when you know a book is going to be good and the writing is fantastic and the story is brilliant but there is just something stopping you from tearing through itI think the main problem that I had was that I seemed to have missed the one sentence that explained the date when each narrator was so I was getting all muddled But that’s not really my fault because no one told me that when you read a book you actually have to you know read itAnyway this book was fascinating I loved the era I loved the sto

    review Ë All That I Am All That I AmThe main effect this book had on me was a deep sense of my own lack of similar courage I was moved almost to tears by the fate of Ruth BlattBecker and the knowledge that this is basically a true story made it all the gripping This book is an excellent example of how best true stories can be converted into novels without sacrificing either authenticity or readability All too often I've seen obviously autobiography simply relabelled as a novel when in truth the writer has not made an attempt

    review Ë All That I Am All That I AmThis novel was a book club choice that I’d never heard of but which gave me some new and interesting insights into a period of German and ultimately European history that I knew little about namely that leading up to World War II when the world was refusing to listen to German refugees who tried to warn everyone about the dangers of the new regime Most of the characters in the novel were real people at the time and we hear the story from two characters’

    review Ë All That I Am All That I AmThis is an important story beautifully written about selflessness determination intimacy collaboration separation exile Told in two voices it's an interesting juxtaposition of times in history Ruth's story with her cousin Dora told from the present day and Toller's story of his relationship with Dora told from New York in 1939 Knowing all we know now reading about the tense and frightening days when Hitler wa

    review Ë All That I Am All That I AmThis is the kind of historical fiction I so very much love You learn history and at the same time feel the emotions of the people who live through the historical events I would suggest reading Sebastian Barry’s A Long Long Way and then continuing with this book by Anna Funder Barry’s book takes you to the trenches of Belgium during WW1 WW1 is the basis for what happens in Germany leading up to Hitler and WW2The people who are the prime protagonists in Funder’s book lived through WW1 and were shaped by it They were pacifists and became socialist activists who sought to prevent Hitler’s rise to power You cannot understand one event without understanding what came before You have to feel in your gut what those who lived th
