Discussion: Likes/ Dislikes

I loved this book! It’s a harrowing but uplifting tale of Eddie’s like starting in Germany and surviving the Holocaust. I won’t give too much away, but as you can imagine the hardship he endured is nothing short of horrific, losing friends and family along the way. To then go on to live a successful life, and to frame all the sorrow that has happened to Eddie into a book titled “Happiest man on Earth” only highlights just how much spiritual strength Eddie has, and this is reflected in his writing. If you want a book to read that will pull your heart strings, make you question humanity, but then also bring you back to believing in the power of the human spirit than this is the book for you. This is a great book to keep and read again, as the lessons instilled within it will remain valid forever. I cannot fault this book, and it was a fast and enjoyable read.
