[ Read Online If I Should Die Before I Wake ½ brazzaville PDF ] by Han Nolan Ä If I Should Die Before I Wake is Han Nolan s first novel and in some ways it is the best In other ways, far from the best The story is about a teenaged Neo Nazi, Hilary, who s lying in a Jewish hospital after having been severly injured in a motorcycle wreck In the next room is Chana, an old Jewish Holocaust survivor who is dying of cancer While they are in their respective comas their minds sort of merge, and Hilary dreams about what happened to Chana during the Holocaust When she wakes up, Chana is dead but Hilary is a changed person.
There are many strengths and weaknesses to this novel Hilary s mother seemed kind of contrived The part where Hilary s Aryan Nation friends set fire to the hospital was, in my opinion, totally unnecessary I think it was meant to show Hilary s mother s love I have to say I loved the book when i first read it I thought the story dragged a little at the beginning but picked up once Chana and her family reached the ghetto I have a huge complaint of the book however Some of the better parts of this book appear to have been taken from another holocost book, the devil s arithmetic, Which was much better It was a story of a girl who became Chaya who was taken to one of the camps They had the whole thing about remember and Chaya stook by her old aunt who was wise and helped everyone around her, there are much that i cant think of off the top of my head but notice any similaritys I still gave it 3 stars though because it was an enjoyable read.
I had some mixed feelings about this book For one thing, I pretty much predicted the plot just from reading the back cover Also, Nolan s language just didn t move me the way some authors can That said, this is still an extraordinary book, and I know it would ve amazed and inspired me had I read it at a younger age, back before I knew much about the Holocaust So, if you are or you know a young adult reader with little knowledge of the Holocaust who might develop an interest in it, I d certainly recommend this book.
If I Should Die Before I Wake is not, I repeat NOT, a book on praying and religion It is, instead, a character study on how society treats different subject matters and how they react to them, physically and mentally It is truly astounding that such a book as this was written, for it takes pure genius to come up with a story as provocative, propelling, and equally appealing as this.
Hilary Burke, a 16 year old neo Nazi, has a bloodlust for the extermination of Jews, among other ethnic groups She is so determined to carry out Hitler s Final Solution that she belongs to the local neo Nazi brigade, the Aryan Warriors That groups such as these still exist in our world today makes me sick, wondering how people couldn t understand that we are all free t
