It brings the characters to life, and transmits the feelings they are having, as the story unfolds.
the book is educational, interesting and hold your attention
the narration is so good. really brings the characters to life
I always have an extreme reation to Jodi Picoult but this is one of her best!
No, don't do that
I saw the end coming, but the writing was excellent, and I needed to see it play out.
I laughed, I cried, a book with hope for all.
Not my type.
I would not have chosen this book. I read it almost accidentally. I purchased the wrong title but read it anyway (without reading the reviews or the story line). I listened with shock, enjoyment and anticipation the whole way through. I have since recommended this book to my bookclub and to anyone else who reads. I have no regrets reading this book - and had a hard time putting it down.
Yes, because I couldn't stop listening to it. The story really hooks you and pulls you in.
Altogether, the plot of the book is a little predictable. I guessed a lot of what was going to happen next because the foreshadowing used in the story is really obvious. The flow of the story was good though. I liked the direction of it. I will probably listen to this story again down the road.
I listen to a great deal of books on audible. I found this book's characters and who narrated as each character added so much to this book.
Really enjoyed this one!
Mostly into natural stuff (homeopathic and yoga).
I never read the print version so I can't compare it with the audio edition. However, I have to say that I enjoyed this book tremendously. The voices were outstanding, the story was beyond compare. I learned a lot from this book as well.
The way they tied up all the loose ends at the end of the book was perfect.
I didn't laugh or cry just....ahhhh
Don't miss out on this one!!
This is a truly Incredible Book. Twists and turns, great character build and a Shock at the end. The Readers are Wonderful!!!
The Characters through time.
The narrators add incredible reality to the story.
This book made me laugh and cry.
A Must Read!! I am buying the hard cover for my teenagers to read!
I cannot say enough about this book. It is several stories within a story. Each narrator plays their part perfectly, especially Toran as Minka. This book begins in present day with Sage. As we begin to learn her story, she meets an old man with a disturbing secret. As his tale is revealed, Sage seeks guidance from her Grandmother Minka. At this point, Minka takes over, and we hear her amazing story of living as a Jew in Nazi occupied Poland. Minka is able to survive because of her talent as a writer. Throughout the entire book we hear bits and pieces of Minka's own unpublished novel. I absolutely fell in love with these characters. Honestly, Minka's story alone makes this one worth the listen.
