I loved the film by Spielberg which made me want to read the book. Unfortunately, the book wasn't that great. I guess Keneally was not sure whether to make it into a novel or a history book. I tried really hard to go through it, but I couldn't. The book is kind of boring in my opinion.

An important work to read and remember. The book chronicles Schindler's personal and private lives and his bravery to save his workers.

I put off reading this book for ten years after I saw the movie. I was worried I would find it too emotional and oppressive. I was surprised that it wasn't, really. After all, Schindler's List is told by the ones who survived. It is a tale of survival agains insurmountable odds, and of people's ingenuity in times of great stress, and of people who survived because others helped. I just kept flipping to the page where it credited "sources" and if I found that last name listed, it meant that someone in that family had gotten out. And then I could keep reading.

Interesting portrait of the man behind the movie. Recommended for narrative non-fiction lovers.
