Facinating and in-depth character study.

Have you ever seen a film such as "The English Patient" and, allthough the book is better the film, the film expressed the feelings and the images so brilliantly, the author, were he to revise the book, could never do it justice? Janet Berliner and Goerge Gutheridge do it the other way around. Reading their seamlessly written words is exactly like watching an arthouse film only better. They write so the haunting an poigniant images lock themselves into you mind and you never forget them. The emotions expressed here are more than an film maker could ever hope to acheive. It is a heavy, dark and gutwrenching book, but it will not let us put it down. I sugest reading the entire series set to music, possibly Mozart's Requiem or something by one of the many Russian sacred choral groups. The two (Berliner and Gutheridge) draw us deeper into the mind of Eirc Weiss carefully examining his inner workings and discovering his true self. They bring us directly into the concentration camp with Sol so we hear, smell, touch, and taste everthing Sol does. And with spectacular results put us through the ultimate test of fate and faith they all go through, particularly poor Miriam. Also two new characters are introduced, Hans the well meaning and endearing homosexual who is put through horrible persecution and experimentation, and Misha a friend of Sol's who leaves home and survives the camps on his own. This is by far my favorite in the series, and I hope (despite the very true statements above) that there will be a film and more books. And if the film is not made I hope to do it my self, though I'm not particularly worthy, and the books, well I'll leave that to the masters.
