"Sarah's Key" by Tatiana DeRosnay



     This was the September read for the book club I belong to.  I just recently finished it....I know I'm very late, but even though we had already met, I wanted to finish the book.
     In case you haven't read it I won't say too much.  I found the story very powerful and heart wrenching.   It originates in Paris in 1942 and provides haunting details of how the French authorities cooperated with the Nazis with regard to the movement of its Jewish citizens to the death camps. The majority of our book club members had no knowledge of this Paris event and were overwhelmingly appalled by the events which took place during the Vel d'Hiv round-up.
     To me, it was written in a bit of an unusual manner, for much of the book, the chapters flip back and forth between the past and the present. However, it really wasn't distracting once you realized what was happening. 
     The other thing I will say is this, if you have not yet read this book, you should! 
  • Did you read it?
  • What did you think?
  • Did it hold any surprises for you?
  • Did you like how it ended?

I read it last year. I liked the story with Sarah but didn't like the modern story ... I found her too wimpy (I'm trying to not say too much). I wonder what the movie will be like.

Teena, I wasn't aware there was going to be a movie...I find I'm usually somewhat disappointed in movies that are created from books.

I haven't read this one yet - began but couldn't continue as I felt that I needed to read it when I'm in a different mood. I've since also had a recommendation to read her next book.
