    Julie Orringer's astonishing first novel, eagerly awaited since the publication of her heralded best-selling short-story collection, How to Breathe Underwater, is a grand love story set against the backdrop of Budapest and Paris, an epic tale of three brothers whose lives are ravaged by war, and the chronicle of one family's struggle against the forces that threaten to annihilate it.

    "Great book, awful narration"
    Overall

    It is a testament to the strength of this book that I listened to all four downloads. The story is riveting, I learned a lot about Hungary before and during WWII and even though it's "another Holocaust" book, it's really, really good. However, the narration is awful. Mr. Morey's voice is a snooze fest. Worse yet, he mispronounces his Hebrew and German words and mangles some French ones...I don't know Hungarian so I can't comment there. It is a major pet peeve of mine when narrators don't take the time to ask someone who knows the language, how to pronounce the words - and Morey does this over and over again. This would have been a 10-star review with a different narrator.
