Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cathy | 2/15/2014

    " I recommend this book highly. Anyone who thinks their life is unfair or too hard to take, should read this book. For those who do not know about the Holocaust or worse, don't believe it really happened; should read this book. For those who don't understand the dangers and depth that hate can bring us to should read this book. And those who believe love can endure anything should also read this book. "

    " I have always been interested in World War II, the holocaust in particular. I think it is an important part of history that everyone should be familiar with so we are sure not to let history repeat itself. That being said, this is my favorite source of information about the holocaust yet. I even liked it better than the holocaust museum! "Two Rings: A Story of Love and War" is a memoir about Millie Weber written by both Millie and her trusted companion Eve Keller. The intended audience is both intermediate and advanced readers. I gave this book 5 stars because I could not put it down; I just wanted to keep reading on. Millie describes her sheltered childhood that leads up to her Poland town being taken over by the Germans. She endures unfair treatment, an exhausting job at the age of 14, and being separated from her friends and family. I love how Millie conveyed her feelings of deathly scared and first time love. The words used to describe her journey really touched my emotions while reading. Obviously, since Millie was able to write the book, she survived! She learned how to overcome the horrific past she had lived through and how to make her future worth living. Young readers will surely be interested in this book! We all study the facts and events of World War II and this story should be used by teachers to relay some of the information. The descriptive yet simple words really touch your emotions as a reader. "

    " The memoir of a survivor who lost her first love and most of her family in the Holocaust. I actually had to put down this book and walk away a couple of times because the events were so horrific. I highly recommend this book but was disappointed to read the author lost faith in God because of all she witnessed. Reading this book, I always saw God by her side in the form of everyday people acting as angels who helped her to survive. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth Atkins | 1/25/2014

    " just finished the book a few hours ago, but Millie and her story will be with me for quite some time. I highly recommend this book. It is a heartbreaking holocaust story but also a love story. It is not only extremely moving but also important- it will make you think too. "

    " The writing is just "okay," probably bc the author is transcribing her notes from conversations. I've read 'better' Holocaust memoirs (referring to the writing). It's not a particularly compelling love story (no Bridges of Madison County here). It's a tale of survival, of luck, and of the little miracles that kept her alive during the horror of WWII. you'll read this in a day, btw. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teresa Pelusi | 1/22/2014

    " Riveting, disturbing, sad and finally happy all at once. To have survived after enduring so much pain and horror, to lose your first love.and then be able to love again is truly a testament to the human.spirit of this indominantable.woman! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Catbird | 1/16/2014

    " The things that happened during WWII were horrible. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tina | 1/7/2014

    " loved this book! added personalization to an often desenatized subject. we tend to view it as something that happened, not as something that is still happening. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carry | 1/3/2014

    " I saw that some of the reviews talked about her anger and how it seemed inappropriate. Really? If anything I expected more anger. I appreciated reading her story and marvel at her ability to stay whole. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erica | 12/28/2013

    " Searing, honest, poignant, and at times difficult. An important book, especially for those who do not typically read Holocaust literature. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jack35 | 12/22/2013

    " Millie Werbers' decision to write her story has exposed, us to her horrors experienced as a Jew during WWII It is told by the experiences of a teenage girl which makes this book even more distrubing. A must read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Toby Schafer | 12/15/2013

    " This is the best Holocaust Memoir I have ever read. "

    " What was different about this Holocaust memoir (and I've read a ton) is that she actually gives you feelings. What she was thinking, what she was feeling which is pretty rare in this genre. I thoroughly enjoyed it & definitely recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny Lee | 11/28/2012

    " I loved how the author used her interviews with this Holocaust survivor to create a story that is not so much about historical facts or chronology, but about how what she felt and experienced and continues to remember from that time. "
