Book Review: Block 24

Block 24 by Evan Tyler: A re-emergence of the past…

Natalie Clarke might be spiteful at best and vicious at worst, but was that reason enough for Phillip Gise to leave her lonely and diseased? Fortunately, she has a set of devious plans that just might keep her busy enough to forget her present situation.

Guy Lewis has played Best Friend Extraordinaire to Natalie since grade school, supporting her through all of her daily drama. This time around, Guy runs into his own troubles when his fierce, wealthy manager gives him the type of attention he never asked for…or expected.

Julia Clarke, Natalie’s younger sister, has arrived in Brooklyn to uncover their grandmother’s secret life in Block 24, the site of Auschwitz’s little-known brothel. What Julia discovers proves more relevant in the present age than ever before.

Both heady and sobering, Block 24 is a look at the ways evil from the past can so insidiously visit the present.

Lori's thoughts: This book is one that makes you think. It's not always pretty. It's often graphically real, and disturbingly vivid. But, really, isn't that the way life truly is at times? It took me a minute to get into the story, and that's the only reason I gave the book four hearts instead of five. Once I got into the rhythm of the writing and started to untangle the intricate webs of past and present and how life has a way of repeating itself, I had a hard time putting the book down.

This is a love story set in the past. The tragic love story between a young Jewish girl and a member of the SS during World War II. This is a love story set in the present between selfish, spiteful Natalie Clarke and Phillip Gise. I'm not going to give anymore details -- no spoilers. Read the book!
