I love well written, artfully narrated stories. The human condition where people endure the unendurable & find redemption or transformation.
Great story both as historical fiction dealing with timely issues of consciousness conflict and t human endurance.
UG, this is not what I expected, the ending is horrible, only good thing is the character development. Don't waste 11 hours listening to 50 chapters of this crap, I am a huge Jodi Piccoult fan and this was a big disappointment
Captured my attention from the very beginning. Story had several plots that intertwined perfectly. In addition the ending was a surprise so slightly anticipated but a very good one that. An ending I wanted. Please read this book you won't be sorry.
the narration was excellent.
I come to love this author and plan on reading more of her work.
I found this story claustrophobic and overly depressing. None of Jodi Picoult's normal interludes of relief or magical human moments. When she started describing a mortician running needles into a corpse's jaw and out through its nose I turned the story off.
My grandfather's immediate family left Germany to protect his Jewish mother and German father. They fled to Argentina. I odd course am aware that German Nazi/SS also choose the same country to hide in after the war. My heart aches even during this story and the atrocities humans inflict on each other. I don't love the ending of the story...but I was moved over all.
This book was well written.. The reader was great... It shows us how people are equipped to be involved in two very opposite sides of morality. Well put!
I just couldn't get myself to finish this book. After less than a half an hour's listen I was convinced I knew what the plot's twist would be and... bang, an hour in later that was exactly it. Although I do like Picoult's style and enjoyed the narrative I just couldn't sit thtough it to see if there is some hidden turn which I might miss.
