ViewPostedRainy Day Ramblings Ugh I was so excited or the concept of the book An alternate history what if The irst 14 gave some historical insight that could have turned out to be true what if the Soviets and Hitler had honored the Non Aggression pact and Hitler never turned on them Then Germany would have had a better chance of winning the war That believable The Soviets later possibly turning on the Germans believable The Italian economy collapsing The Bride of Willow Creek first believable Nazi medicine leading to new advances believableSuperhero powers this is where I lost it I kept thinking Avengers Then I mentioned the book to my other half and he said yeah like Captain America and Red Skull I looked up these characters and realized wait this plot line has been done beforePlease stop taking history and twisting it to the point in which I have to explain to my students that no the Avengers did not save us during the Cuban Missile crisis Maybe I would recommend this book to a teen who loves comics Beyond that I want to screamAnd FDR s Only Thing to Fear speech was about the Great Depression This was liketwo and a half stars I like the idea of a young adult what if Hitler had won book My local school district does a unit on the Holocaust and genocide so I was hoping that this would be a great suggestionor the teachers to give to the kids who are interested in GREAT INVESTMENT, THE further reading And look no it doesn t have to beilled with ootnotes to back up research or illed with years and years of world building because the book actually takes place 80ish years after Hitler wins but there was a lot of development that I thought was missing What does the rest of the world look like How does the Japanese controlled western half of the US act differently than the German controlled Eastern half I thought that the science iction element of "Powers Stemming From Gene Work Wasn T "stemming rom gene work wasn t terrible idea because of the Nazi obsession with genetics But of course Zara the main character gets to be one of the super rare ones I guess that s to be expected With the lack of world building came the Nazis who in my humble opinion could have been worse We get people saying cruel things to Zara because she is bi racial and there is a public execution the people live in poverty but I don t know I think Richmond went a little soft handed with this Overall it wasn t terrible I doubt I d read it again and I wouldn t extol its virtues to teachers but it has an interesting premise that unfortunately it doesn t deliver Okay Wow The irst time we were introduced to this book I was thinking OH MY GOD This is gonna rock Actually no But you get the point The back of the book seemed like a different world that would introduce new perspectives The title back of the book and beginning pages seemed really interesting But once we actually started to read the book I thought that it was going to be the most predictable book in the history Everything especially Zara and Bastian was predictable and seemed childish The connection was not there and it such a WIERD romance Also the set up of the book seemed really odd to me like it was backwards andor it missed important scenarios or situations Overall I would not read this book again and it wasn t as good as I thought it was gonna be. Old the key to taking down the Führer or good but it also might be the very thing that destroys her Because what she has to offer the rebels is something she's spent her entire life hiding under threat of immediate execution by the Nazis In this action packed heart stopping novel of a terrifying reality that could have been Zara must decide just how ar she'll go or reed. ,
