I will definitely read (listen) to this story again, and again, and again. I will tell my kids, my kids kids and all my family & friends to read this book. If I were an educator, it would be required reading (even though it's fiction). All my life I've heard about "The Holocaust" but I never really got it until this book. The horror is unimaginable but the story is wonderful. Listening to the book with all the accents makes the story come alive. It's almost like listening to a movie where the film is running in your mind. No other story has made such an impact on me as this one. And the fact that the story is happening in present day United States makes it feel more like a story but has the impact of a history lesson.
The most memorable moment was when one of the Nazis had so much compassion for the victims he actually brought them into his company to protect them from sure death, even when he didn't need all of the ones he already had.
Excellent, excellent, and excellent. This is by far the best novel I've heard in a really long time.
Definately, without hesitation. This has to be the best listen ever. Not only because of the story itself but also the narration was by far the best. She truly captured the protaginist like no other could.
I'm not sure about the edge of my seat but definately well immersed into the story. I didn't want to stop listening and when it was done I craved more
No, I don't think so, but it would be interesting to see how well she does. But this story seemed to be made just for her to perform, and perform she did.
It will be the one to listen to over and over again. Thank you Nora Roberts and Julia Whelan. You both are gold stars with this title.
