I read this book in the 4th grade, but it always get me when I go back and read it again. It really lets you know about all the terrible things that happend during World War II. It really is a very sad and touching book for anyone to read. I always go back and read this book!

The Devils Arithmetic is a story about a young girls journey through the Holicoust. This book is very realistic and true. Its also very appropriate for any age.
If your interested in the Holicoust you should defently put this on your list of books to read.

I can't say i enjoyed this book, because it caused me pain, although i appreciated it just as much. It is incredible how human beings can act towards each other. The holocaust happened so we can learn from it. I think that this book is an excellent way to look into the past, and understand the horrible things that people actually had to endure, although truth be told, the experiences of the characters of this book are pretty mild, compared to the stories I've heard, firsthand, from survivors. Still, it's a start, and i want as many people as possible to really get into these holocaust books. It can make the world a better place.

The Devil's Arithmetic
By: Asia Martin

        First lets get things straight I did not like The Devil's Arithmetic by
Jane Yolen. The book just didn't have any meaning to it. Well, I don't
know maybe it's because I'm only 13 and historical fiction doesn't
really catch my attention well.

        The Devil's Arithmetic is about a Jewish girl,
Hannah, that didn't really understand her religion. She traveled to the
past where Jews were being badly mistreated in the Holocaust. Hannah
got to experience the life that the Jews had in the past and realized
what went on. Through this she learns the true meaning of what it means
to be Jewish.

        I did not enjoy this novel because it was somewhat confusing.
The book continued to "flip-flop" from present to past or past to
present. The Devil's Arithmetic was too dreary, it didn't have enough excitement. I give this book a rating of 2 stars out of 5.
