About Michael Cargill

I am a new author currently living in England.

Over the years people have often said that I should write a book so, in mid 2011, I did just that! My first few books are available for free and I hope that anyone who goes to the trouble of downloading and reading one enjoys it.

Feedback of any kind is always welcome.

Review by: Andrea Clunes Velásquez on Feb. 13, 2015 :
It took me a long time to finally get to a point where I could read this book at ease. I try to read somewhat "thematically" and it wasn't until now that I finally reached the World Wars theme, so I hadn't had a chance to check this, my first Michael Cargill book, out. I started reading it right after finishing "The Book Thief", which left me absolutely speechless and amazed, so I was kind of worried that anything I read after it would be kind of overshadowed by the greatness of that novel. But picking "Saying Goodbye to Warsaw" was an excellent choice because it turned out to be one of the best books I've ever read regarding the World War II topic.

At first, I felt the story would be kind of stereotypical: yet another story of Jews suffering under the Nazi regime. However, as I flipped through the pages, I began to get immersed in the story the author created, got to know his characters and discovered the little things that made this book unique and special. I particularly enjoyed the ending. It was so utterly unexpected and shocking! I wouldn't have guessed it would end like that even if they'd paid me to do it. It was incredible! And, in a few pages, my whole impression of the book changed and I was left utterly in awe.

I won't give anymore details so I don't spoil the surprise and interest for anyone. I will only say that I'm grateful I got to read this book (and in Paperback edition too!), I'm happy I could finally read it and I'm very pleasantly surprised by the story Michael Cargill gave us, how he did it and how it ended.

If you like World War II stories, give this book a shot. It's worth every single penny! :D
