What the community says about Sarah's Key
- #5 of 13
in What are the saddest novels
- "I don't usually read or care about WWII books because I'm sick of hearing about Nazis and Jews, it's been done so many times. However, a friend suggested this book to me and it turns out to be a really compelling fictional story of a young Jew girl's life during the war. It's really very good."
- "WWII was a huge event in history, and there are many aspects of the war that could be touched upon. When it comes to fiction or biographies about this time period, one could talk about the military aspect, the perspective of the Jewish people, or even the conflict with the Eastern nations. This one is a great choice for exploring the Jewish people and their struggles during the war.""I loved this book! I was expecting a run of the mill story about WW2 and I was so surprised that it turned out to be a bit of a Pulp Fiction-esque story. The book bounces around from Paris 2002 back to Paris in 1942! We get to see a tragic incident that occurs during WW2 followed by how the modern day family member discovers and investigates her families past. A novel look at WW2."
- "I'm someone who loves to read, but I also love history. So I figured I should pick up a historical fiction book. I settled on Sarah's Key which is based around a Jewish girl during World War II. It's a very good read. It's made me cry a few times though. It's very emotionally charged."
