Descripción del producto
Vivid and anguished . . . compulsive reading (Richard Overy Sunday Telegraph)
You can learn more about human nature from this brief account of the survival of one man throughout the war years in the devastated city of Warsaw than from several volumes of the average encyclopaedia (Gerald Jacobs Independent on Sunday)
We are drawn in to share his surprise and then disbelief at the horrifying progress of events, all conveyed with an understated intimacy and dailiness that render them painfully close . . . riveting (Lisa Appignanesi Observer)
This memoir of a Jewish pianist who survived the war in Warsaw is one of the most powerful accounts ever written (Sunday Tribune)
A compelling, harrowing masterpiece (Independent)
A book so fresh and vivid, so heartbreaking, and so simply and beautifully written, that it manages to tell us the story of horrendous events as if for the first time . . . His account is hair-raising, beyond anything Hollywood could invent . . . Everything that has been most horrific in life in 20th-century Europe is encompassed in this exquisite memoir (Daily Telegraph)
What really stays with the reader is the chilling, almost naive immediacy with which the story is told . . . The Pianist is an icy, nerveless but remarkably readable memoir that takes us as close as we are ever likely to travel to the day-to-day reality of living through terror (Sunday Times)

The powerful and bestselling memoir of a young Jewish pianist who survived the war in Warsaw against all odds. Made into a Bafta and Oscar-winning film.

Szpilman finds himself alone and fighting for his life by hiding in various places in Warsaw, often in dangerously close approximation to the Nazi militia. What I find so compelling is the fact that, instead of being bitter and crying out against those who killed most everyone he knew and loved, Szpilman pays tribute to the German officer who discovered his hiding place, and, instead of killing him on the spot, coaxed Szpilman from the brink of death by bringing him food and a warm coat, as well as news of the German Nazi's impending fall from power.
Such a powerful story! If you enjoyed the film, you'll enjoy the book.
I would most definitely recommend The Pianist to students or adults interested in world history or World War II and to those who enjoy a good and exciting book that is actually true. It also involves some intense detail of certain events, but its written incredibly well and does not get too gory into the details. This book is definitely very interesting. Sometimes it seems like its fictional because the events don’t seem plausible because they are so horrendous and unimaginable, but Spzilman uses vivid word choice and description to make these events seem realistic. Also for this reason, the book is very interesting because these descriptions make it seems so real, and the nonfiction basis of it makes you think twice about how to treat others and to be careful of one’s judgments.
This book is better written than "Country of Ash"- however, in Reicher's defense his book was written from memory (his diaries were destroyed ) and was written in Polish, then translated to French, then translated to English. Things can easily get lost or poorly related after that kind of journey !
So, I found Szpilman's book clearer and easier with which to build a picture of the ghetto . Singly, or together with Reicher's book, the story is compelling. I honestly can't figure out how anyone survived that horror. What a treat that we have their words forever available to us.
