Yes I would only to capture the details of the Holacaust.
None in my memory. This due to the rare perspective of a remorseless Nazi's story of joining the Hitler Youth.
This is the first Audio book I have listened to that employed multiple readers that were character specific. I enjoyed it.
The story of Daria's death moved me to scream out "oh no thats not good".
From Picoult yes. Not the narrators..
Most interesting...Minkas story. Least interesting...undertakers part in the story.
This book was different than what I expected by reading the summary, but it was amazing. It is basically three stories woven together - the story of the baker & the old man, the story of the grandmother's life, and the vampire story written by the grandmother. The way Jodi Picoult tells these stories is amazing and the ending was very unexpected for me. I didn't see the final twist coming. I always look forward to Jodi Picoult's new books, but this one surpassed all my expectations. The history contained within the telling of the grandmother's life will bring tears to your eyes.
Say something about yourself!
near the top.
Descriptions of what the Jewish people were going through really gave me pause to think of how I may have reacted. I also saw the SS officers as real people who were going through their own termoil.
The strength shown by Sage's grandma throughout her struggles made her the most memorable character for me.
At times I found the material troubling to listen to and needed to take a break to process it.
Enjoyed the variety of voices of the readers...Great read and would recommend to all of Jodi's fans.
I just finished listening to it and am resisting listening again, saving it for a future date when I can't wait anymore. This is Jodi Picoult in top form. The writing is superb; the harrowing story is difficult to pause, so real and horrific, even though we know much about the end; the performance is brilliant. I can't imagine that reading this as text would begin to approach the impact of this recording.
The twist at the end, even though I expected it.
They were amazing. Edoardo Ballerini's accents!
Oh yes, but I resisted.
Picoult's research is superb. We always learn something from reading her books.
This is definitely up to her usual standards. I enjoyed every aspect of this book.if you are wanting a very engaging and entertaining book then I suggest you try this out.
Yes it was a book that I wanted to hurry up and finish because I wanted to know the ending.
I am only on part 1. I love how I can transfer back and forth between book and audio format. I am completely into this book. The author has done a great job with getting me to be in tune and interested in the characters, from the very beginning. I can't wait to listen to the next chapter. There is a much bigger story unfolding ... I can't wait.
I would find this book hard to listen to again as its realism was very disturbing. A really upsetting story, which needs to told
The three stories intertwined kept the listener enthralled
The holocaust survivor captured my interest. Although the story in the present was also very good.
I found myself listening way into the night
The ending in so many books is often disappointing. In this novel Jodi Picoult has managed to sustain your interest right to the end and leave one wondering
I do love Jodi Picoult's books, except the one before this one. It was kind of awful, just my thought. I really enjoyed all the characters and loved how the story was told.
Again, I have no opinion.
I don't really like this question.
I don't know.
I didn't want to stop listening to this book. I very much enjoyed it and recommend listening!
