  • Fall of Frost

    Story

    Told in short chapters, each of which presents an emblematic incident with intensity and immediacy, Hall's novel deftly weaves together the earlier parts of Frost's life with his final year, 1962, when, at age 88 and under the looming threat of the Cuban Missile Crisis, he made a visit to Russia and met with Nikita Khrushchev.

    CHESTER says: "Universal Appeal"
    "Better read"
    Overall

    This would be a better book to read than listen to. I thought the narrator did a very good job, but in the end the story skips around too much to be a listening book.

    Ten-year-old Annemarie Johansen and her best friend Ellen Rosen often think of life before the war. It's now 1943, and their life in Copenhagen is filled with school, food shortages, and the Nazi soldiers marching through town. When the Jews of Denmark are "relocated," Ellen moves in with the Johansens and pretends to be one of the family. Soon Annemarie is asked to go on a dangerous mission to save Ellen's life.

    RaisinNut says: "People of all ages will enjoy this book."
    "Slow start"
    Overall

    The pace picked up about two third's of the way through. I liked the reader, she did a good job. Particularly enjoyed the epilogue which went over what was fact and what was fiction. A good story that ultimately told about a fascinating piece of Danish history during World War 2.
