Book Review: May


By Stephen King
Now mind you I have loved Stephen Kings Original works.  Not His Bachman era but his Carrie, the Shining type of work.  But when I heard that he just wrote a book about zombie like people.  Hell yea that’s right up my alley.  In this book Mr. King doesn’t disappoint.   His tendency to over describe scenes is perfect in this type of novel.  Imagine talking on the phone to your mom and suddenly the  “pulse” occurs and you’re an angry yelling maniac trying to kill everyone in your path.  This was a great read.  A little slow in the beginning but it picks up to the point you have to stay up till 330am to finish the book.  If you like a apocalyptic or zombie books run out and get out a copy.  I give this book
  blood-drop blood-dropblood-dropblood-dropfor a great read and zombie book.
Back of the book:
“When the Nazis invaded Hungary in 1944, they sent virtually the entire Jewish population to Auschwitz. A Jew and a medical doctor, the prisoner Dr. Miklos Nyiszli was spared death for a grimmer fate: to perform "scientific research" on his fellow inmates under the supervision of the man who became known as the infamous "Angel of Death" - Dr. Josef Mengele. Nyiszli was named Mengele's personal research pathologist. In that capacity he also served as physician to the Sonderkommando, the Jewish prisoners who worked exclusively in the crematoriums and were routinely executed after four months. Miraculously, Nyiszli survived to give this horrifying and sobering account.”
Dr. Mengele one of the infamous Doctors during the holocaust. Know for his horrid experiments done on prisoners of Auschwitz.  This book is about the Jewish Doctor who had to assist Dr. Mengele in his “scientific research”  even though he knew he was a criminal doctor. It was amazing just horrid this camp was and just how easily this man could have been killed in camp.  The monstrosities he had to endure to come out “alive”.  If you read holocaust memoir then this is one to add to your reading collection.
Feel free to tell me what your reading…and you score.  I love hearing about great books to read.
