Such a well written book. Griped me from Beginning to end. The reviewer who said it was sad at the end... That's too simple of description. It's ... Well... Read it... Or listen to it... ;-)
even though I had already read the book and seen the movie, I am so grateful that I had the audible experience as well. The rperformance s perfect, it did justice to the beautiful metaphors in this story. Hard to believe that a holocaust story could be uplifting.
I was hooked from the moment Liesel stole her first book. I wanted to find out more about this girl and what life had in store for her. This was not an easy story to listen to and did not have what most people would consider a happy ending, but it was well told. Worth picking up.
I usually prefer to read a book, but my commute has me listening to books now, too. This is such a wonderful story, and the narrator added an extra - and a very special - dimension.
Definitely. A great story, with a great narrator.
He sounded very natural, I've heard bits portions of audio book where I find myself taken out of the story with a distracting change in character/voice, but he kept me engaged throughout.
I'm VERY glad this was my first audio book
Don't expect the ending to redeem the book. It is well written and has some witty lines and stories that will make you smile but overall is morose and will leave you feeling down on humanity. Other books on the subject matter such as The Diary of Anne Frank and The Boy in the Striped Pajamas manage its little better in my opinion.
