Book Review: Surviving the Angel of Death

Surviving the Angel of Death: The Story of a Mengele Twin in AuschwitzSurviving the Angel of Death: The Story of a Mengele Twin in Auschwitz by Eva Mozes Kor
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a short but powerful book. Written by one of the twins who survived Auschwitz’s Angel of Death, Josef Mengele, Eva and her sister Miriam were 10 years old when they landed at the concentration camp.

Although the story is horrible, I’m glad it was told. History that’s forgotten is history that can be repeated and the horrors of Nazi concentration camps should never be repeated.

I was so impressed that the author was able to forgive the people who harmed her in order to heal her soul. That must have been so very hard. I highly recommend this book.

Book Review: Keto for Cancer

The Ketogenic Diet for Cancer: A Comprehensive Guide for Patients and PractitionersThe Ketogenic Diet for Cancer: A Comprehensive Guide for Patients and Practitioners by Miriam Kalamian
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

As a person who believes in natural methods to cure disease, I was very interested to read Keto for Cancer. I have followed a ketogenic diet and have been very interested to note how it has helped people with many different medical issues.

I appreciate the author’s sharing of her son’s cancer diagnosis. She first used the ketogenic diet to help him when there were no other options for treatment. Although it didn’t ultimately cure him, it did slow the cancer enough to give him more time. She eventually went back to school to study nutrition and is now in private practice helping her patients through the use of the ketogenic diet.

The book was fascinating. The science behind why it works and how to use the diet are all outlined within.

This book is everything I hoped it would be and I highly recommend it.

Book Review: Sociable

SociableSociable by Rebecca Harrington
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Well, I’m disappointed that I just didn’t like this book at all. I kept reading because I love humorous stories and stories about social media but this book was depressing, the characters unlikeable. Two stars because I was able to read it quickly.
