Prisoner B-3087 is based on a true story of a young Jewish boy who survives an unbelievable odyssey through a series of Nazi concentration camps. As a side note, I learned in the afterward that he moves to the US after the war, marries--and is drafted to fight in the Korean War. And comes back from that too. A real life Odysseus.

The 30 Most Recommendable Books

7/28/2015 - NOPE! Not a good read. the story took too long to get there, and when it finally arrived it was a total let down. World War Two tale about a blind girl in France, and a German boy brutalized by his Nazi commanders.

The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho. This is such a beautiful book. Not only is it inspiring, but it also teaches you the virtue of patience and how it pays off when trying to reach your dreams.
