Review- Tattooist of Auschwitz

Author- Heather Morris

Publisher- Bonnier Zaffree books UK

Genre- warstory, biography

Pages-270

It is always going to be impossible to ascertain; whether wars supress the art or they nourish it. Art needs some sort of danger to sprout out of its seeds and humans are never short of creating horror and disputes.

.
.
.
we see so many stories arising out of ruins of a war and they stimulate emotional typhoons like blasts in the psyche of the reader.
.
.
I have read few books on wartimes but this one is different.
.
.
It tells love story of Lale and Gita, which blossoms out of thin air; grows into a big forest and finally undergoes many cycles of green springs and torrid winters. Beauty of the book lies in use of simple vocabulary but still being powerful and deep. Author makes familiar plot into a beautiful novel.
.
.
Story sometimes crawls out of book and feels like a dream you wish you watch completely before going awake.
.
.

It has deep corners depicting bare pains and starkness of torture which occurred in those black times and gardens of blooming flowers when Lele meets Gita and they love each other; so deep that they forget their destiny is hung with a fine thread.

.

.

Story follows their lives from the time of their arrival in camp to the day when they get seperated and war ends.

.

Lales command on five languages and his helping nature saves him and many around him.

.

.

Everywhere we see touch of reality with no superhuman acts or stunts. Story is sincere and realistic.

War and apocalypse lovers should get hands on to this one….

.

.

.

My rating 4/5
