Hunger Journeys It’s World War Two in Amsterdam Teenaged Lena leaves her starving family to travel by train with her friend Sofie to Almelo a town close to the German border It’s a risky plan They have false papers and are u I really did enjoy reading this book It shows how war can rear its’ ugly head and it brings out the worst ualities in average every day people It shows a different point of view as Lena is not Jewish However like most books which take place during this awful period in history I couldn’t help but feel so much anger towards some of the characters and because of this I think the book does a great job in bringing out emotions from the readerOf all the characters in this book I hated Lena’s father the most He was an awful horrible man who treated his family with such disrespect He was so selfish and horrid I felt like wringing his neck when he gave himself helpings of food when his wife needed and his children were practically starving He wasn’t self sacrificing or did things for the sake of his family He just cared about himself To make things even worse he also didn’t like the idea of Lena and Sarah being friends because of his own prejudices He was just a character I could not stand to read at all He was just so hateful and selfish There were other characters that made me see red but then the review would then be an awful long hate listAt first I thought Sofie was really fun to read she seemed like a such a fun person to be around with However when things turned around and looked bad she would chicken out and let Lena do all the hard work I had to agree with Lena there were plenty of times where you just wanted to slap Sofie hard for her stupidity I’d say about the second half of the book I was starting to dislike Sofie Plot wise I thought the book was good It was a little slow to start out but once the setting and the atmosphere was established the book got interesting I really did like Lena and Albert together I understood her reluctance to be with him and her resistance to reciprocate his feelings but I thought Albert was really a nice character despite who he’s fighting for The book does a good job in showing a ‘human’ side to who we would normally consider our enemies yet on the other hand showing who we would consider our ‘allies’ as not so friendly at all Naturally it only takes about several moments for Sofie to do something ridiculously stupid and puts Lena into a huge bind again However I admire Lena for her courage and maturity She matured ten times faster than Sofie did Sofie eventually sees a bit of reason but not until literally the last few pages of the book I did enjoy reading the little epilogue but I feel as if should have come out of this story I wanted to know what happened once Sofie and Lena had reached their destinations I wanted to know if Lena and Albert end up being together what about Lena’s father? does he get his come uppins? it’s these little things that weren’t revealed yet I thought if they were the book would have probably received a perfect 10 from me However don’t let that deter you from reading this book I thought this was a great novel showing how war can bring out the best and the worst ualities in people It shows how sometimes the people you expect to act in a certain way could act the exact opposite and possibly worse I really do recommend this book to those interested in the Second World War and Resistance activities
