The Librarian of Auschwitz by Antonio Iturbe - The Literary Phoenix
The story being told in The Librarian of Auschwitz is fascinating, but the way it is being told doesn't do it justice. I found myself zoning out a lot during this book because of the lack of rising action. I've thought long and hard about this, because the partially-fictionalized stories of the real people in this novel have a lot of potential, and I think these stories should be told, but the experience was challenging for me as a reader. To put it frankly, I was bored.
