A vision of World War II and the Shoah from the point of view of a hidden jew in the most destroyed city of Poland.
Sad, poignant and devastating to the moral level. Imagine what this man has lived is impossible.
The Pianist is an amazing book! I read it at school some years ago and then we also saw the movie. The movie is faithful to the book, but i think that reading the pianist you can get messages that in the movie are not so evident. After reading this book, anybody would hate nazism and have sympathy for Jews ....Continua
Shocking and traumatic, this text reminds us of the trauma and catastrophe that was the Jewish experience in central Europe before, during and after the Second World War. Close to Primo Levi's texts for the value of a personal view, perhaps the most desperately sad thing about reading this book is that we're reminded nothing really has changed.

I like War, and specially the WWII. From F.4, I study history and fall in love with history. I read books on the WWII history, on Hitler and its army, and this time I read the history of a place suffering from the Hitler rule.
I think most of us have watched the movie of the same name, this books bring us even more feelings on how the Jews, the Polish face the war. It's not easy, the story bring you through the years where Nazi occupy the land. How human being live and die in this special period on Earth. It's not a easy time to live, and it's not a easy days to read this book, if you are passion enough to feel like you are in war too.
Anyway, this book is well-written, bring the time back to the 40s.
