Some of the characters were expendable and did not really serve any purpose. The plot was good but could have been crisper and faster moving if the redundant portions were edited.
Bit abrupt. It all happened too quickly. No build up. Absolute opposite of the whole book which was a huge build up leading to a specific event.
Yes I will give it another shot as his narration had nothing to do with the minus points of the story or the drag at some places.
I think so because of the abrupt ending and two such volatile individuals coming together raises the question - what next?
This was my first audio book and the fact that it kept my interest alive was enough to give it a thumbs up.
It was okay. There were too many plots intertwined and the core plot seemed to get lost. Then it picks up again and then loses steam. There was intrigue more because of the narrator.
Yes because I have read his books and he is good.
Initial interaction between the girl & Robie till they settle down. The akwardness and respect for each other and knowing that there is no third person to watch their backs was well performed.
No I do not see it as a movie or TV series
I liked "The Forgotten" better than "The Innocent"
Yes - though the backdrop is a subject dealt with hundreds of times, the structure of the narration in first person singular of the two main characters was very interesting as was the style of narration and the voice modulation signifying the mood & the environment.
I can not pick one as there were many but some that stood out were Lenka's digging her heels on staying with her family and not going with Yosef unless the other 3 members of her family also come despite opposition from everyone.Then there was the resistance through the drawings & paintings - improvising with what was available and passing the skill to the children so that they could tell the world the truth.Gotlieb proposing to Lenka - taking her back and giving her a good complete life.After liberation Lenka going to Lutia's home and the exchange between Alichka & Lenka.
Just one word Excellent!
Somewhat like that. I finished it pretty quickly.
The depth, visulization, use of words, describing the moments, feelings, pain, suffering - superbly done.
