5.0 out of 5 stars 5 STAR READ, 30 April 2010
This review is from: The Prisoner List: A True Story of Defeat, Captivity and Salvation in the Far East 1941-45 (Paperback)
This book was an unexpected treasure. It transported me to a time and place that I knew next-to-nothing about and drew me into the narrative effortlessly. Mr. Kandler set the stage clearly and concisely by weaving the historical context into the personal experience of his own father. At times I could feel his dad sitting in the chair across from me, relating the events himself. I was hooked. I picked the book up on a Friday evening and finished it by Saturday morning. Surprisingly, I found myself actually crying at a couple of specific instances where the brutality and senselessness of what so many were forced to endure was being described. The Prisoners List is well worth the read. I came away moved, educated and even more appreciated of what so many sacrificed for our freedom today.
