Beschreibung

#1 New York Times bestseller and winner of the Carnegie Medal!

"A superlative novel . . . masterfully crafted."--The Wall Street Journal

Based on "the forgotten tragedy that was six times deadlier than the Titanic."--Time

Winter 1945. WWII. Four refugees. Four stories.

Each one born of a different homeland; each one hunted, and haunted, by tragedy, lies, war. As thousands desperately flock to the coast in the midst of a Soviet advance, four paths converge, vying for passage aboard the Wilhelm Gustloff, a ship that promises safety and freedom. But not all promises can be kept . . .

This paperback edition includes book club questions and exclusive interviews with Wilhelm Gustloff survivors and experts.

The sinking of the Wilhelm Gustloff in the Baltic Sea at the end of WWII was the greatest tragedy in maritime history. Reading a YA novel about this event was informative and new to me. That is why appreciated this book. We follow the events from four different perspectives in alternating short chapters. All four characters are from different national and ideological backgrounds whose fates intertwine with the progression of the story. The sinking of the Wilhelm Gustloff was not the main focus of the novel but it rather concluded the story at the end. The main story is who these characters are, what their story is, how they met and how they all ended up on that ship. I found the story captivating and well written. The only point that felt out of place was the romance in this book. It developed way too fast and therefore felt forced. It is a pity that most YA books, regardless of genre, feel the pressure of including a romantic storyline, whether it suits the story or not. I still enjoyed this very much and recommend it to all who would like to read a WWII novel that has a unique focus.
