  • 1.  CoverThe choice
    Rating: ★★★★★★★★★★
    Reviewed by: Jemma Ann, Paraparaumu, 05 Oct 2019
    Another brilliant, brilliant read. Edith survived Auschwitz, and spent a lot of her life working with the challenge of not letting her experience define how she lived her life - " you can't change what happened, you can't change what you did or what was done to you. But you can choose how you live now"

    A moving, powerful and challenging book. Non fiction.

    A brilliant book, about a N.Z'er who went to prison for manslaughter but talks about how the real prison is one you have in your own head and what you can do about it. Non-fiction.

  • 5.  CoverFive feet apart
    Rating: ★★★★★★★★★★
    Reviewed by: Sarah-Louise, Waikanae, 02 Oct 2019
    I finished reading Five Feet Apart on 26 September and read on ebook via the library service axis.

    I enjoyed the storyline and the tenacity of the main character. Despite her many challenges to balance in the story threads, her character was written consistently and without losing the endearing quality of her uniqueness.

    This is not a genre/topic style I usually read, but I have previously read John Green's A fault in our stars. For me...Five feet apart was a deeper more convincing and emotionally charged book. One of the few books ever to make me cry and feel strangely bereft on a number of occassions.

    Loved it!!
