    When I read a book about the Holocaust—or other terrible parts of history—my favorite part is almost always the middle the messy heartbreaking point when the plot is at its peak At the heart of the story the protagonist sees the most horrifying yet captivating details and is far from the tranuility of “before” and the relief of “after” I do enjoy watching the exposition shatter as characters are captured and

    Although I found this book enjoyable it did have many lose ends that at the end of the book were left untied You grew strong relations with the characters but at the end of the story I felt like the reader should be left informed about what was going to happen to the girls with both the lover and the parents presumed dead It would not have hurt to leave them some kind of fortune money family a future It made the book very gloomy especially

    In my opinion this would be a fantastic way to introduce younger people to the topic of the holocaust Sad but with happy hope filled moments as well Not overly graphic while also addressing the horrors that went onIt doesn't romanticise them th

Family is separated at the gates of the Auschwitz Birkenau concentration camp Her father's wordsand a black C sharp piano key hidden away in the folds of her dressare all that she has left to remind her of life before Before Hanna was going to be a famous concert pianist She was going to wear her yellow dress to a dance And she was going to dance with When I read a book about the Holocaust or other terrible parts of history my favorite part is almost always the middle the messy heartbreaking point when the plot is at its peak At the heart of the story the protagonist sees the most horrifying yet captivating details and is far from the tranuility of before and the relief of after I do enjoy watching the exposition shatter as characters are captured and seeing them weave their lives back together in the conclusion but I always struggle to turn away from the horrors of the story s center However this was not the case with Playing for the Commandant while I appreciated its every chapter my favorite parts spanned the first and last 50 pagesI fell in love with this story s exposition for its masterful portrayal of the protagonist s ignorance At the start of the story when Hanna and her family are forced to leave their home in their sealed ghetto she does not guess at the severity of the situation Even upon arriving at Auschwitz Birkenau Hanna still does not grasp the full scope of the evil surrounding her for example when she sees people sent toward buildings seeping smoke she assumes they are being sent to work in factories This dark dramatic irony knowing that Hanna s life is about to become far painful than she expects makes readers ache for her and makes the first few chapters a gripping openerHer innocence and hope carries her all the way until the end when it cracks in a conclusion that can only be called explosive I do not want to give too much away but I will say that the ending displays a calculated imperfection happy enough to be optimistic but sad enough to be realistic Suzy Zail chose a spot on ending for her story and I would not change a thing about itThe only segment in which I would make small alterations is the middle the section that has always been my favorite It does not have any major flaws but something small is missing something keeping me from becoming fully immersed in the story Perhaps it was the book s length at 245 pages it has little room for fleshing out dramatic details so the plot often skims over months in a matter of sentences Or perhaps it was the slightly too modern dialogue that springs up occasionally pulling readers out of the historical setting Whatever it was I never felt truly absorbed in the story as if I were there with the charactersHowever I cannot hold this flaw against Playing for the Commandant Despite my inability to fall into the story completely the plot still holds enough shocks and emotions to keep any reader invested I highly recommend this novel to any historical fiction fans and I hope that of Zail s Australian writing soon makes its way to AmericaThis review originally appeared at wwwlitup reviewcom
