I'm a pushover for British accents, so I may be a bit biased, but I loved this book! I loved the character development and progress; I loved the narration. The plot was a little flimsy and predictable, but it was an entertaining, light book. Great for a couple of summer afternoons on the beach.
The story gets 2 stars, the narration gets 4. This story is told in the form of letters sent amoung each of the main characters. Interesting concept but it did not hold my interest and I only finished it so as to not waste a credit.
Be forewarned, this book will make you laugh out loud. So you might not want to listen to the book in the middle of an airport terminal like I did. Truly enjoyable.
This book is fun and informative at the same time. I learned a lot about WWII. The different narrators make this book wonderful to listen to. Probably my favorite audio book ever!
A very engaging story of a small country community and their views of the German occupation during WWII. The various actors who lend their voices to this audio rendition of the book make the story that much more interesting.
Comparable to "The Help", taking place just after WWII. It gives you a true sense of what it was like during this era. I'm on my third listen. This is a book that I will treasure for a very long time!
This book was absolutely meant to be performed. The actors & actresses brilliantly bring these magnificent characters to life. What an absolutely clever way to weave history in with fiction. IIt stirs your soul, makes you laugh ... and cry. Simply splendid! Not one to be missed!
I had to listen to the first 10 minutes twice but once I got familiar with the narration style and characters I absolutely loved this book! The story is very interesting and the narration is like listening to a play. A strong recommend.
