The Tattooist of Auschwitz is based on the true story of Lale and Gita Sokolov, two Slovakian Jews who survived Auschwitz and eventually made their home in Australia. In that terrible place, Lale was given the job of tattooing the prisoners marked for survival - literally scratching numbers into his fellow victims' arms in indelible ink to create what would become one of the most potent symbols of the Holocaust.

The body of a young woman is found on the streets of East London, in the shadow of the City's gleaming towers. No ID on her, just hard-earned cash. But there is no doubting the ferocity of the attack. DI Simon Fenchurch takes charge but, as his team tries to identify her and piece together her murder, they're faced with cruel indifference at every turn - nobody cares about yet another dead prostitute.

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

No one

What will your next listen be?

When Breath becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator was lost with voice character interpretations. Something of a story line but no depth to it at all except for all the drums that were playing in head!! Was that a hint for heightened suspense? Didn't work.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

no

Any additional comments?

I read reviews before I purchase and I purchase a few books. Please make them honest reviews.
