The movie was amazing and the subject as a whole is of great interset to me. It's a bit heavy for me with too many characaters and locations. I am already confused but don't want to quit. From what I have read it can be a little bit of a slow start read. Is there a spot in the book where I could jump to where I may start to become interested? Boy I sound like a lazy cheater lol Thanks folks. Alex Brown The rising tension of the occupation and increasingly threatening edicts passed against the Jews is a large part of the personality of this book.
I be …more The rising tension of the occupation and increasingly threatening edicts passed against the Jews is a large part of the personality of this book. I believe Keneally wrote it largely based on the records of the people involved, which means that the book focuses on maybe half a dozen people other than Oskar Schindler. If you can't keep track of everyone, you will probably miss some of the subtleties of the subplots, but not the main action.
If you must skip ahead, I recommend starting at chapter 8. Hope that helps! I am wondering how old you should be to read this book? Any suggestions? I have read well, Night, Irena's Children, The promise at sobibor, the pianist, and the girl in the green sweater, etc. Danger Prone Daphne My 13 yearold son was assigned this book as a book club and it is not appropriate for 13 yearolds nor is it accessible. He has a lexile in the range and this is supposedly - but this is not a book for kids.
I'm only on page , but it has been dry information dump after information dump, all fact telling interspersed with plausible reasoning behind Schindler and other's actions. It reads more like a biography or textbook and I don't see how it is considered a novel.

Aug 15, K. Absolutely rated it really liked it Recommended to K. Shelves: holocaust , core. Much has been said about the Stephen Spielberg Oscar-winning movie.
I saw it twice in the movie house when it was released. I bought copies of it. Every time I bought me a copy, I watched it. Every time I watched it, I cried. Rather, I was enthralled by it. Do you know the feeling when you're eyes are wide awake and your brain is busy trying to absorb what you are reading especially facts and figures?
You do not have time to cry. Not this time. The book made me understand the movie more. So, saying that the movie is better than the book is an injustice to the book. After all, the movie was based on that and Spielberg was so faithful to it, you will easily recall the scene in the movie while reading the book.
Spielberg tried to tell us a story by showing glorious black-and-white moving pictures on the screen. Keneally tells us the background of each mostly harrowing scene and each of the many unforgettable characters: their stories, their background, and their fates. Spielberg was constrained by the length of his reel s of film, i. Keneally did not have any limit on how many pages his novel would take.
As in any of Holocaust novels, my heart bleeds most when it comes to the innocent children caught in the midst of it all. Olek is the son of Henry Dresden who is the guy playing the piano in one of the scenes inside the house of Herr Kommander Amon Goethe , the heartless camp commander.
In the book, it is not Olek who hides in this disgusting hole. Who could forget the red little girl? Red dress. Red hat. Tiny red boots. She survived the Holocaust and when she saw the movie, she identified herself to the press.
If I keep on giving you what I learned from this book, I will have a very long review. I also find enjoyed the last parts of the book giving the information on what happened to Oscar and Emily Schindler his legal wife after the war very interesting. Of course, you should know that Oscar Schindler is not a saintly person and so the moral is that even how bad some people seem to be, there is something good in them.
Sometimes, God provides the opportunity for us to do good things to others. When He come knocking, harden not your hearts. You may not have a tree in the Avenue of Righteous people but it always pays to be a good person. View all 28 comments.

The United States version of the book was called Schindler's List from the beginning; it was later re-issued in Commonwealth countries under that name as well.
This novel tells the story of Oskar Schindler, self-made entrepreneur and bon viveur who almost by default found himself saving Polish Jews from the Nazi death machine. Based on numerous eyewitness accounts, Keneally's story is unbearably moving but never melodramatic, a testament to the almost unimaginable horrors of Hitler's attempts to make Europe judenfrei free of Jews. What distinguishes Schindler in Keneally's version is not, superficially, kindness or idealism, but a certain gusto.
He was a flawed hero; he was not "without sin". He was a drinker, a womaniser and, at first, a profiteer. After the war, he was commemorated as Righteous Among the Nations by the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem, but was never seen as a conventionally virtuous character. View all 4 comments. I was sort of familiar with the Schindler legacy--probably seen the film 5 or 6 times.
Blame the subject matter entirely.
