Review: Surviving the Angel of Death

I had read other bloggers talk about Netgalley, but I had never tried it before last week.  I finally checked it out last week and I was amazed.  There are so many good books that caught my eye.  I was especially interested to read this one, since I have always been fascinated by the Holocaust.  I've read a lot of books about the Holocaust, and even took a college class on the literature of the Holocaust.  But I had never read anything about the Mengele twins.  I really liked this book.  It was moving and horrifying at the same time.  I was especially touched by the author's devotion to her twin.  I would have liked a little more detail about what the author went through in Auschwitz, but overall, this was a good quick read.

3 1/2 stars

I received an electronic copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
