Here are a couple books that never made it to my list on the right, but yet I read last week. I just felt this need to let you know (and give a little review!).
This book was a tasteful but still haunting account of Elie's time leading up to and spent in Auschwitz. When I say tasteful, I mean that it still had the "smack you in the face horribleness that was Auschwitz" (how can any book about Auschwitz not have this?) without going into horrible detail. I found that quite noble, almost as though he was above it.
I don't want you to assume that I think other books, or movies for that matter, that go into such painful detail aren't right in doing so. I think it's very necessary to keep what happened as fresh as possible in our memories. This book just felt different, plain and simple.
Have you ever read A Child Called It? Running with Scissors has the same flavor, interesting and completely shameless.
(Just a tidbit, doubts of the authenticity A Child Called It have been raised in recent years... the juries still out for me)
I don't know if I would recommend it, though if you like being shocked, this book is for you!
