One of the best audiobooks I've listen too so far. The narrator does an amazing job. Just listening to the prologue I had goosebumps.
I've been trying to get into this book for months, reading it. I had to keep starting over mostly because I didn't have time to sit and read. Once I started the audio, read by the most perfect reader, I was pulled right in. His accent, his caring voice. Brilliant. And since I could listen while I drove, cooked, cleaned I had plenty of time.
Excellent story of humanity. However, this is maybe the first time ever I liked the movie more than the book. I didn't like how the narrator (death) jumped around and gave things away.
Death as the narrator gave a unique perspective. The German citizens perspective of the holocaust is not one I've read as much about. The narration created a relationship between the reader and the characters. It made you love them.
Her words have life unto themselves .she used words to assault your senses. she breathed life into very poignant scenes. It was a time of monumental horrors and untold kindnesses. seeing it through the eyes of a child touched my heart.
I listened to this book after my wife downloaded it to our account. I found it moving and also very entertaining with deep characters. I probably wouldn't have chosen this book on my own, but count it among the top tier of my library.
