I listened to this book mesmerized by Edith's story and having to tell myself that this wasn't fiction. Her strength of character through unbelievable hardships shines through. life under Nazi Germany came alive in this book. The cruelty of mankind towards people who are different was evident throughout. A must listen to book. Narrator was excellent. Totally believable, inspirational and not over-dramatic. This story will stay with me.
The fact it was a true story
I kept having to remind myself that she wasn't The Nazi Officer's Wife, but only the reader.
Not a typical Holocaust story, but another true hero in my eyes.
The narration was perfect and very compelling.
Stirs up your imagination and emotions.
Fully captures the description of the era as it walks you in step with the author's experiences.
The narrator was perfect!
I listened to the story twice in a row and has become one of my favorites.
Don't be afraid by the title or a publisher review. The story is so alive and breathaking not to mention it is based on real facts. I felt I was watching a movie rather than listening to a narration, it was so vivid. Just can't stop. Barbara Rosenblat's narration this time was absolutely amazing! One of my favorite listens of all times!!!
This book was quite interesting. The life of Edith and what she went through as a Jew during WWII. Barbara Rosenblat does a fantastic job as a reader. Her accent is well executed and easy to understand. Definately worth listening too.
Great read! Very smart and creative. She was a very strong woman. You do what you have to do in a situation that she was in. I hated to put it down could not wait to pick it up again. Wonderfully spoken by the narrator. A must have.
This biography is so amazing to me...I could not stop listening. A Jewish experience during WWII, but not gruesome. Definitely worth a credit.
I have done Holocaust studies and this book helped bring much of my studies to life. Barbara Rosenblat's reading of the book was so believable that I kept thinking it was really Edith talking to me. I will probably buy the printed version for my school library.
An incredible story. Well written, well told, very well read. Provides great insights on what it was like to live as a Jew in Vienna, and then what it was like to live as an imposter.
