This was a riveting story of the holocaust. Starts out sort of slow, but then became very intense, so emotional.
Yes, the story was so well written you felt as if you were there, witnessing it all.
Excellent!!! Everyone of the narrators made the story come to life.
The middle of the book, when the Grandmother was telling her memories of life a a jew in the camps.
I laughed, I cried, I laughed, I cried. This book stayed with me for awhile. I embraced the characters. I had to stop listening and just cry. The rollercoster ride was worth it. I was hooked from the begining. Be prepared to have a hard time putting this one down. Simply amazing book..
This is an amazing story that everyone should taken a listen to. It helps put into perspective what it meant to live in the concentration camps during WWII, and raises the question.. what is justice, and how should justice be executed.
Although I saw the ending coming from a mile away, I still really enjoyed what the author put into this book. Very perceptive, deep and creative.
This is a very long book, which is not in itself a problem. Although Picoult is clearly an excellent writer, in this case she seems to enjoy her own writing too much. The "surprise" ending to the book is given away at about 2/3 into it. One can only assume this was on purpose, but the reason is not at all clear and to this reader deflated the ending.
Ranked amongst my favourites this book really takes you in and you feel desperately for the characters.
It was intense and I appreciated the breaks - but was desperate to get back to it
Another story that can't be enjoyed without your concentration, but worth the effort. This is not a subject matter I would normally chose, but after having enjoyed MOST of Jodi Picoult's books, I gave this book a whole-hearted listen. I was not disappointed! It was thoughtful & heartfelt, as with all her books.
I enjoyed the book and am glad I listened to it but it was unclear to me from the summary that it was a holocaust survival story.
