    It is always shocking and amazing how many people escaped punishment for their vile and heinous crimes during World War 2. In both the Nazi movement and that of the Japanese empire, there were many allowed to go unpunished, some with just a slight slap on their wrist who then went out ...

    5 ? Wow!!! I enjoy reading historical fiction in and around the WWll era and I have to say this is much MUCH different than any other story I?ve read. The Hollow Bones is based on the life of the Nazi regimes little known villain, zoologist Ernst Schafer (German/part-Jewish. Yes J...

    From the embers of history, Kaminsky weaves a cracking tale of adventure, competing loyalties and the folly of sacrificing reason on the ideological altar. ...

    I feel so lucky to get a copy of this book. It is published in Australia, but here in the US, the book has NOT been published and is hard to find. I don't know why, but I hope to campaign and find out!! This book is an example of EXCELLENT historical fiction- well researched and cov...

    This is an incredible rich & complex book. History, biology, taxidermy, love, travel, politics and fantasy. Nazis juxtaposed with Tibetan monks ... innocence v ignorance ... the magic of feathers... and the absolute terrifying madness of the ?Third Reich?. Will need to be read ...

    This is an incredible rich & complex book. History, biology, taxidermy, love, travel, politics and fantasy. Nazis juxtaposed with Tibetan monks ... innocence v ignorance ... the magic of feathers... and the absolute terrifying madness of the ?Third Reich?. Will need to be read ...

    A thought-provoking and thrilling page turner - a must read! Couldn't believe it was based on a true story ...

    Readers of Leah Kaminsky?s masterful debut novel, "The Waiting Room", will have eagerly awaited her return to fiction. Awarded the Voss Literary Prize 2016, "The Waiting Room" was a haunting story of love and intergenerational trauma, a reflection of the Holocaust?s long legacy and...

    Now this was very good, no actually it was excellent! Through detailed research Leah Kaminsky has provided us with a novel with deeply unsettling characters and incidents from the past that I knew nothing about, until now. Based on true events that took place just prior and the early d...

    I am at odds with the reviews already posted and feel conflicted about my 2.5+ rating. The subject matter was engaging, an aspect of the Nazi ideology not generally known. Kaminsky's research would have been extensive, for which she earns my utmost respect. The portraits of Himmler and...

    I very much enjoyed this book. It tells the largely true story of Ernst Schäfer and his expedition to Tibet just before the start of WW2. The oddities of Nazi theories about the master race and its origins has almost Game of Thrones overtones. And the description of the SS Bride Schoo...

    I love this book. Leah Kaminsky has written an incisive and unique WW2 story. I was intrigued from the first page and couldn't put it down. Leah is such an accomplished writer. She manages to go deeply into an issue, whilst keeping the story personal and therefore allowing it to resona...

    ?Soon we will both disappear forever, our story hidden away in dusty archives.? Ms Kaminsky has based her novel on the 1938 expedition by Ernst Schäfer to Tibet. The expedition, funded by the Schutzstaffel (SS) to find the origins of the Aryan race: ?You are to bring back ...

    Readers of Leah Kaminsky?s masterful debut novel, "The Waiting Room", will have eagerly awaited her return to fiction. Awarded the Voss Literary Prize 2016, "The Waiting Room" was a haunting story of love and intergenerational trauma, a reflection of the Holocaust?s long legacy and...

    Now this was very good, no actually it was excellent! Through detailed research Leah Kaminsky has provided us with a novel with deeply unsettling characters and incidents from the past that I knew nothing about, until now. Based on true events that took place just prior and the early d...

    This was one of those books where i can appreciate the story but somehow wasnt for me. Stopped after about 45 pages. ...

    This is an emotionally difficult novel to read. The author has done extensive research, and the resultant tale takes you into the Nazi?s search for the origins of the Aryan race. The characters, as one would expect, are very difficult to relate to and the horrors inflicted are worse ...

    5 ? Wow!!! I enjoy reading historical fiction in and around the WWll era and I have to say this is much MUCH different than any other story I?ve read. The Hollow Bones is based on the life of the Nazi regimes little known villain, zoologist Ernst Schafer (German/part-Jewish. Yes J...

    ?World Ice Theory is finally receiving the recognition it deserves, overthrowing that madman Einstein and his Jewish pseudoscience. The Führer has at last accepted it as the scientific platform of the Reich. And rightly so. We know the truth now, that ice crystals are the true build...

    From the embers of history, Kaminsky weaves a cracking tale of adventure, competing loyalties and the folly of sacrificing reason on the ideological altar. ...

    I feel so lucky to get a copy of this book. It is published in Australia, but here in the US, the book has NOT been published and is hard to find. I don't know why, but I hope to campaign and find out!! This book is an example of EXCELLENT historical fiction- well researched and cov...

    The Hollow Bones is a dazzling exploration of evil, love, and madness that had me turning the pages late into the night. Set in pre-Nazi Germany, Tibet, and an unnamed contemporary zoological museum that displays extinct animal species behind glass?among them a Panda with a tragic hi...

    A captivating fictional retelling of the little known, and completely bizarre, part of Nazi history. I love the dark humour and the poetry of Kaminsky's writing. What a feat of a novel... ...

    2.5 stars from me. Like an earlier reviewer, I'm at odds about this book. It is extraordinarily well researched and paints a chilling picture of how easily rational scientific minds can be seduced and subverted by the promise of funds for their research. Certainly, the most horrifyin...

    This is an incredible rich & complex book. History, biology, taxidermy, love, travel, politics and fantasy. Nazis juxtaposed with Tibetan monks ... innocence v ignorance ... the magic of feathers... and the absolute terrifying madness of the ?Third Reich?. Will need to be read ...

    A thought-provoking and thrilling page turner - a must read! Couldn't believe it was based on a true story ...

    ?Soon we will both disappear forever, our story hidden away in dusty archives.? Ms Kaminsky has based her novel on the 1938 expedition by Ernst Schäfer to Tibet. The expedition, funded by the Schutzstaffel (SS) to find the origins of the Aryan race: ?You are to bring back ...

    Readers of Leah Kaminsky?s masterful debut novel, "The Waiting Room", will have eagerly awaited her return to fiction. Awarded the Voss Literary Prize 2016, "The Waiting Room" was a haunting story of love and intergenerational trauma, a reflection of the Holocaust?s long legacy and...

    Now this was very good, no actually it was excellent! Through detailed research Leah Kaminsky has provided us with a novel with deeply unsettling characters and incidents from the past that I knew nothing about, until now. Based on true events that took place just prior and the early d...

    Exposition on exposition, occasionally interrupted by the voice of a taxidermied panda. V disappointing. ...

    Leah Kaminsky?s ?The Hollow Bones? is a rare bird in the world of historical fiction set in interwar Germany. From beginning to end, I found myself marvelling at the breadth and depth of this meticulously researched, finely crafted story about SS scientists? zealous pursuit of ...

    This was one of those books where i can appreciate the story but somehow wasnt for me. Stopped after about 45 pages. ...

    This is an emotionally difficult novel to read. The author has done extensive research, and the resultant tale takes you into the Nazi?s search for the origins of the Aryan race. The characters, as one would expect, are very difficult to relate to and the horrors inflicted are worse ...

    A powerful and captivating story that fell through the cracks of history until now. Kaminsky describes one of the most bizarre and fascinating events of the Nazi regime, with lyrical prose and a gripping twist. 5/5! ...

    Leah Kaminsky starts outwith a wealth of knowledge about the professional life of Ernst Schaeffer, Indiana Jones style explorer, famed scientist - and SS officer under the direction of Heinz Himmler. But she asks herself the wuestion. What would be the private thoughts and dilemmas of ...

    *Review to come. ...

    "Glory needs its devil to define it" What an exceptionally well-researched, and well put-together novel. The Hollow Bones by Leah Kaminsky is a powerful and thought-provoking story of love, loss and greed, set in Germany in the 1930's. This is a novel that will well and truly trap yo...

    I am at odds with the reviews already posted and feel conflicted about my 2.5+ rating. The subject matter was engaging, an aspect of the Nazi ideology not generally known. Kaminsky's research would have been extensive, for which she earns my utmost respect. The portraits of Himmler and...

    I very much enjoyed this book. It tells the largely true story of Ernst Schäfer and his expedition to Tibet just before the start of WW2. The oddities of Nazi theories about the master race and its origins has almost Game of Thrones overtones. And the description of the SS Bride Schoo...

    I love this book. Leah Kaminsky has written an incisive and unique WW2 story. I was intrigued from the first page and couldn't put it down. Leah is such an accomplished writer. She manages to go deeply into an issue, whilst keeping the story personal and therefore allowing it to resona...

    Review to follow ...
