The book was a lengthy and interesting read. It contained anecdotes that I have no doubt that every American female will find interesting. Noem does not sugarcoat any of her feelings and was very straightforward in sharing what it was like growing up in Nazi Germany during World War II. She was not a child of the Jews, but she certainly had anti-Hitler parents and that definitely colored her views towards the German leader.
I believe that many Americans are not well-informed on the early years of Hitler’s rule and how his regime started out. That alone was sufficient enough to make me want to read Noem’s book, but she goes much further by delving into the economics and politics of the period. While reading her book made me think about the women’s rights and what our country could have done if different people had been more aware of the financial aspects behind the policies of the day, I also came away with the realization that our current politicians really could have done a better job of communicating the facts about the bad economic situation that we are in.
Overall, I found The Last Paradise to be a quick and enjoyable read. Noem provides a detailed and humorous biography about a real woman who lived during that time and shared a lot of information that only those who were alive can know. While reading her story reminded me of the sacrifices women throughout history made for their countries, I also felt a sense of appreciation for the hard work these women did because they were also fighting for their own rights. If you are a woman and are interested in learning more about the life of Kristi Noem, then this is a book you should definitely add to your reading list.
