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.
This was the first Tolstoy book I have ever read and in the end I would say that human nature remains the same through the ages.
This book took a very long time to say what needed to be said. For me, it dragged.
I think that I was expecting a "deeper" story, but Still Life with Bread Crumbs was simply nice to listen to...As other reviewers noted, it was filled with clichés, and followed a predictable pattern. Personally I prefer a novel with a deeper plot. This one was an enjoyable listen, but in no way memorable.
This was a beautiful love story that had sadness, as in real life, but overall had much goodness and kindness. Several times when I thought, "oh no" someone is going to die, cheat, etc...it didn't really happen thus the twists and turns were believable and natural.Trigiani gives such beautiful images of Italy that I am anxious to return!
Unfortunately, I did not enjoy listening to this book. The reader was difficult to listen to, and the story dragged on and on......I did finish it, but would not recommend it .
