About this deal

Quise leer este libro porque en el se basa la película Jojo Rabbit, la cual no vi pero el trailer me encantó, un niño se inventa un amigo imaginario mientras pasa su niñez en la Austria nazi, participa de las juventudes Hitlerianas, y entre medio su familia oculta a una judía en la casa, por cierto su amigo imagimario es Hitler. My next impression was all of Vienna shouting the same words, but it was too huge a sound to make out the single words they were saying. Anything past that in the book made me reevaluate the characters, plot, and points the story was making. It explores a less rare from of relationship, it appears, than one believes: love so total that it locks up, isolates and colonises the partner until destruction; annihilates the outside world.

At first, she wasn't at all fond of the idea because she felt that she would be intruding on us; and she reassured my parents at breakfast every morning that she wouldn't bother them long . Thank you to Abrams books and Overlook Press for an advanced reader's copy, in exchange for an honest review. The scene in the book where the boys are killing ducklings was inspired by what I was told by them about the boys having to kill rabbits, twisting their necks. Johannes is a boy who is a Hitler Youth who is entranced by Hitler when he discovers his parents are hiding a Jewish girl named Elsa.However he gradually becomes fascinated by Elsa and when his fascination turns to obsession, the relationship takes a more sinister turn. New Zealand Books * Leunens has an ear for language and the ability to create a vividly sensual world for her characters that I found highly satisfying -- Cushla McKinney Totally compelling * Woman's Weekly (NZ) * Leunens said the film showed moviegoers that "we have a choice, are we going to go back to this kind of thinking .

He discovers that his parents have been hiding Elsa, a Jewish girl, behind a false wall in their large house. The way the author describes his hometown and what is happening after Hitler's regime is over, it felt like I was transported. Johannes is not a character to side with; he makes rather deplorable decisions throughout the novel. And you've learned that he lost half an arm in the incident (incidentally, Captain Klenzendorf is not a character in the novel). Guardian * The best part of this interesting novel is its ability to show parts of our history which others dismiss: why suffering can make some people more sensitive but others more cruel, and how a war, such an outrage to human dignity, blurs the line between the victorious and defeated * Elle * The good-natured humour and quirkiness of the film and the drama of the novel are quite fun to contrast, and both are impactful in their own right.

You could possible see two parts in this story and the way it stumbled from the first into the second is incredibly well crafted, making the story taking an even more dramatic and unpredictable turn. Initially he is horrified at this scandalous behaviour which conflicts with all the ideological brainwashing to which he has been subjected. Una novela que se adentra en temas como la guerra y sus secuelas, el miedo, el amor, la familia, la dependencia emocional, la sumisión y la supervivencia. This must be acknowledged for people to ultimately feel that standing up for what’s right and humane counts, if not then, when so outnumbered, at least in principle later.

Read this one as I knew it was being adapted into a movie by Taika Waititi and wanted to see how he could handle such serious material. I think if there book had been from Elsa's perspective or a neutral one, I may have even enjoyed reading this book. Yes he is strong and courageous, but his obsessive behaviour leads us to question whether he is more captor than protector of the young girl in his care. Já muito se escreveu sobre o Holocausto mas nunca nenhum livro abordou a manipulação, a lavagem cerebral que transformou jovens em monstros ao serviço da loucura do Terceiro Reich — rapazes e raparigas que foram privados dum desabrochar saudável, permanecendo marcados para a vida!This is the novel on which Taiki Waititi's Jojo Rabbit is based, so if you haven't seen it and you want to see it (and I recommend you do because, in my view, it's one of the best films of the last few years), it's best to ignore my comments, because there will be a bit of compare and contrast going on. Un joven austríaco de las juventudes hitlerianas, una chica judía escondida en un desván y una mentira que trastocará varias vidas sin remedio. Nisam siguran da sam razumeo lepo sve stvari koje se dešavaju pred kraj, ali sam kraj mi jeste bio zanimljiv, zaokružuje celu knjigu.
