About this deal
For those that have read the previous two books, there are brief appearances of Lale, Gita, and Cilka.
I can understand how wonderful it would have been for the author to be interviewing these sisters and putting their story to paper, but this simply didn’t resonate with me in any way.
Maybe it was because my parents were never particularly interested in sharing, or because nobody else in my immediate surroundings ever voluntarily shared their past, I didn’t feel like something was amiss. As with Morris’ other two books, the story is true and was created with the help of many interviews. The Kennedy sisters, Molly, Alex, and Sam, have a Christmas tradition – a night out, just the three of them, sisters together. Tras leer el Tatuador de Auschwitz y el Viaje de Cilka, tenia ganas de leer este tercer libro, que aunque son libros independientes, tienen personajes que están relacionados.
The Kennedy sisters, Molly, Alex and Sam, have a Christmas tradition – a night out, just the three of them, sisters together. The book is an honest, powerful, at times hard hitting recollection of what the Meller family went through. In 1929, when the girls were very young, their father made them promise to stay together, no matter what happened. All three sisters found it impossible to eradicate all that they had witnessed and lived through from their thoughts, dreams and daily lives.Still, Alex doesn't have any problems finding this information from company gossip without Damian discussing this with anybody.
Livi is only three years old - the wild one, Cibi is the oldest at seven and has a fiery temper, and Magda is five, the beautiful and gentle one. He knows he will be having a surgery the next day, and wants them to promise him one thing, a promise that they will always take care of each other, no matter what happens. I have a sister…no, my parents have another daughter…so I don’t know how it feels to give a crap about a sibling, so this book was kind of delicious as they go through a night from hell. Getting to know the characters and understanding their lives and what drives them to do the things they do becomes a story. This author has a raw talent for capturing every important moment but not overly describing it to make it boring.
Heather Morris interviewed and spent quality time with many members of the sister’s family and with each sister so that their story could be told in its entirety. From international bestselling author Heather Morris comes the breathtaking conclusion to The Tattooist of Auschwitz trilogy.
