Slow start for me. However, once I fully understood the narrator's (death) perspective, I could not finish. I appreciated this book in so many ways...from start to finish!

Wow. This is deffinately my favorite book, though the first post here says its for grades nine and up im in 7th. whoops! But I love it, the holocaust is something I love to learn about but I don't like how practically every book about it is in a jews point of veiw. And now I really stand behind that becaus ehtis is the story no one will wait and listen, and care to hear. They want to believe that all Germans were terrible and supported this. Well hell, this is exactly the kind of book that should be thought about when you say read a book about this or that for say a book report. Finally someone has told the story of the Germans who didn't agree with Hitler and didn't want to hang a flag. And it was so beautifully written and I even cried when poor old Rudy Steiner died. I have so much to say that i'm afraid it won't fit. But more people should deffinately read this.
