Amazon readers gave Once We Were Brothers 4.6 stars

Goodreads readers gave Once We Were Brothers 4.4 stars

Once We Were Bothers was an excellent book club selection. Most agreed that while perhaps not an eloquently written book, it was a fascinating story and a real page turn. As one of our readers described it….Once We Were Brothers is suspenseful, emotional and informative. Well worth the read!



  1. A compelling story. I could not put it down.

      • Thanks, Susan, I really appreciate your effort. I know this is not a new book but I just wondered.

        • I remember something about the numbers on his arm being incorrect, so they knew it was a fake. I am going to skim the book and get back to you on this!

      • Hi Hilda! I found it. Page 352.”Rosenzweig was never at Auschwitz. His tattoo’s a fake.” Ben’s friend Mort goes on to explain that he had worked in the tattoo line and that starting at the end of 1943, the SS preceded each prisoners number with a letter. The first 20,000 men’s numbers started with an A. Then they switched to a B. Rosenzweigs’s number started with an A. It was a fake.

        • Hi Susan…you went to a lot of work for me…but thanks so much. I really do appreciate. Can you tell me what the next book you’re reviewing. How long has your bookclub been in existence? How many members you have? I’m really interested.

        • By the way, what is an omelet?????

  6. Good question! We meet for breakfast so we rate our books in omelets as opposed to stars!

    5 Omelets: Incredible, delicious omelet. (One of the best books I have ever read. A must read!)

    4 Omelets: Really good omelet. (Very good book. I would definitely recommend it.)

    3 Omelets: Decent omelet. (Good book. I am glad that I read it.)

    2 Omelets: Would not order this omelet again. (Disappointing book)

    1 Omelet: I should have sent this omelet back. (Warning: Do not bother reading this book!)
