Fantastic story highly recommended. Great narration added to the drama of the saga. I read this after the movie came out, but never saw the movie. If the movie followed this story, it must have been very poignant and moving. The author did a wonderful job putting the story together and it flowed perfectly. Well done.
Listening to this audiobook really transformed the way I approach my day to day inconveniences which previously seemed to carry more weight.
This story keeps you rooting against all odds, amid the worst punishments one could never begin to imagine.
The title of this book says it all. The author takes us on an odyssey through a troubled childhood, a renewal, a horrific wartime ordeal, a crushing struggle, and finally redemption and forgiveness.
The writing is not as descriptive as I prefer, but she is a good storyteller. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
The performance was outstanding. Mr. Hermann is a superb narrator, always brings life and enjoyment. What I enjoy most is that he never distracts from a story with uneven pacing, reading too slowly, or mispronounments.
Overall, I highly recommend this book.
