Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great but VERY disturbing! oh wow! this was an excellent book written very throughly and carefully. i could tell it was planned out perfectly, and the author who wrote it was a great author with a wide vareity of knowledge. BUT the thing about this book is that it is very disturbing! if u have read the book, u'll probably understand. i had to stop a few times because my eyes got too blurry from crying... even a few hours after, i could not stop thinking about this book. it's just so touching and sad... i recomend u to read it but only when u have spare time with nothing important to do afterwards because i bet many of u will still be thinking about it afterwards so u should allow urself about an hour of crying time! lolz!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wow! I love this book because it touched on my many favourite areas of reading. I have always loved to read books about war (any war at all it doesn't matter to me). I found that as she was sent to England away from her mother and her father who is in hiding it was quite touching for me to read. For with this book you feel as if you are Marianne not you anymore so you feel her hurt sadness and anything else thats she feels throughout the novel. At first I though I might not like it but in the end I found that I wanted to read the next book in the series which is called "Remember Me.".

From Our Editors

In 1938 Berlin, young Marianne Kohn is bewildered. Mysterious men who come in the night have burned shops in her neighbourhood to the ground. Then her father-a mild-mannered bookseller-leaves the family to go into hiding. Told to stay inside at all times, Marianne clings to her mother. What is to become of them? Based on true events, Good-bye Marianne is a sensitive portrait of a young life in Nazi Germany.
