Yes, definitely! The story itself was marvelous, but the performances by the readers were so wonderful, it was such a tremendous experience. I never expected to love this book so much.
It seems unique to me, and maybe that's why I loved it. I can't think of another book like it that I've read.
They were spot on, and just added so much to the character's personalities. I listen to books while in my car, then pick up where I left off at home with the books on Kindle, and I have to admit that the readers give so much more to the story than when I'm just reading. It's like listening to a movie.
Yes, but that would have been a physical impossibility!
Just that I really highly recommend it for anyone. The Holocost should never be forgotten, and this book makes it understandable from several perspectives. It's just a great read.
I enjoyed the book but struggled with the ending it was a little too contrived for me.
Absolutely, I'm listening to, The Pact now.
I'm happily married 28 years with 4 children and 1 grandson. I have been so blessed with Audible. Who needs a TV <grinning>
This entire series ranks among my favorites.
All of the characters were well developed with Sage being my favorite.
Good job well done. It was all taking place in my head. They made it easy to visualize. My heart aches. I cried and laughed out loud. This book gives a lot to think about.
I would put my head set on click play and be busy in the garden or other chores. I was so tuned into the book that I wasn't aware of just how much I was accomplishing. Thank you Jodi!
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.
